a few snapshots from the past few days

Busy! We’ve been *very* busy! Last night, I didn’t have the energy to check email before I went to bed at 12:00. For me, that is tired! 🙂 Here are a few pics from the past few days.

Young ladies from church came to help. A blessing, to be sure! Below, Ashley and Ruth. Yesterday, Brooke, Samantha, Ashley, Susan and Bob came to lend a hand. SO helpful!!

yeah for helpers!

I no longer climb ladders, but my helpers are great at it. 🙂

Niko thought all the boxes from the attic were very interesting.

While painting, DH took the window panes out of the windows and replaced the rope on the weights.

Ruth decorated this little tree in the master bath, but after I looked at it for a few days, I decided it needed a good dusting…too much powder on it from several Christmas seasons in the bathroom. 🙂 So I took everything off the tree, gave it a shower, wiped down the lights, washed the ornaments and put it all back together. Now it sparkles.

Happy loves the wooden ladder, but totally ignores the metal one.

I wrapped the baby pictures. Along with DH, these are the best gifts I ever received. 🙂

DD tries out the upper bunk…the bed won’t be done for the open house, but next week Ray should be able to get it enclosed and finish the steps up to the second story. DD slept on the lower bunk last night. 🙂

Back to work! I have three hours of sugar cookie decorating ahead of me. ~~Rhonda 🙂

    That just looks wonderful. I can’t believe Christmas is here almost. I love the way you decorated your house, and the cookies look amazing.
