Mason helping Granny..

Kayla and I have been painting a good part of my home... and we of course have a helper once in a while... He loves tools and needs to try them in the one picture he needed to be on top of the desk because I was and was checking my electric fact today he had it and had a tack stuck in the end where the heads go...watching it go around!! First he was upset because I took the ends out...too smart!!! Next he was helping with the taping... and playing on the steps with whatever he could get a hold of...

More pictures coming of the finished rooms soon...still some things to put back together.

Chris has been working to get the stove hooked is now hooked up and first we thought the oven did not work but it does...just one burner needs some wiring fixed.

I picked out beadboard to put on the wall behind it...I painted that part today so the stove could be put up on it's brick pad. The rest of the kitchen will be painted at a later date.

I really like the look of an old fashioned kitchen!


The long weekend was a busy one at our house..this is the weekend of the rodeo in Manawa, so on Saturday we took the kids to the parade...they had fun eating hot dog and getting candy of the street.
