I'm so proud of myself- I got watery eyes but didn't cry today. Mary Beth could barely stand how excited she was to go to school. After 2 years of only speaking about 10 words in preschool, her teacher said she talked up a storm today. ???? She always surprises us. Won't it be ironic if she starts getting in trouble for talking too much? Oh little Mary Beth...

you can tell by the look at John's face that it wasn't fun.
but at least it's done.
John's parents came and helped us and we are soooo grateful.
i don't want to guess how long it would have taken or how badly it would have stunk to do it all ourselves. thank you thank you thank you Mike and Donna!!
we saved $2500 doing it ourselves- well worth it I think.
I'm painting my front door yellow. i'll post a picture when it's done.

But Echo Nuts are really cool! You put 3 or 4 in the little bag that comes with it and pop it in the washer with your dirty clothes. And then ta-da! Clean clothes the hypo-allergenic natural way. Click on the link to learn all about this magical soap. I have used them for months now and they get my clothes just as clean as regular detergent without the chemicals and additives.
(i got these photos off of amazon)

They have chickens just walking around!
There's a big person door and a child size door. How adorable is that???
My sister Amy catching up on some old favorites... that's a cat napping under the chair. There are cats running around the store also.

I also got some cute snail fabric from the same line and I'm working on a dress for her out of it. I'll share the finished product when I'm done.
Mary Beth said I had to take pictures of her "twirl" so there it is!
I have lots of pictures from our (Mickey) birthday weekend in Minneapolis/St. Paul to share and also from Mickey's birthday party yesterday... those will be coming in the next few days.
