Warning: Big post with lots of pictures.

It has been a while since my last post. With Halloween and lots of other stuff going on I have been busy.
Brinlee is now two months old and is cute as ever. She is a very happy, calm, good sleeping, good eating baby. I haven't been to her two month appointment so I don't know how much she weights or how long she is. Sorry. Chandler is her best friend, or at least that is what he told me while I was taking her pictures today. She was crying and he said he needed to hold her hand so she would be happy. Guess it worked.

We blessed Brinlee on the 1st and it was great. We had lots of family support and are so grateful for all of them. Dave did a great job and Brinlee didn't even cry. She did however fill her diaper as soon as the blessing was done resulting in a wardrobe change in the chapel.

Our costumes for Halloween this year had no rhyme or reason to them. Brinlee was a flower and was not happy about it.

We carved pumpkins and Chandler dug right in. He didn't want to save the seed and was constantly trying to throw them away. It was funny.

Chancho and his BIG pumpkin.

Here are our costumes this year. Chancho was a puppy and we were a white trash couple. I even had a black eye. It was awesome!

Before and After....again.

When we purchased this home we knew the space under the front windows was a really strange space, not very functional. Some people with similar homes have put their TV or couch in front of the windows and it looks stupid. I can't figure out why someone would want to put something in front of a window especially low windows. So after watching lots of home improvement shows we came to the conclusion we needed more storage.

So this is what my handy man came up with. Four storage shelfs with a blanket box in the middle. It is awesome and the front room is staying clean.

I love it and Chandler loves driving his cars on it. Thanks to Ikea we now have lights above it and baskets to put our crap in!

More Before and After.

From this.................. To this.........................

What do you think? I love it! We bricked the front on the house, had new vinyl windows installed, a new garage door, new exterior door, and new lights.
LeGrande and Marcia did a great job on the brick and we are so thankful they were willing to do it.
I don't know if I will ever be able to leave our "little red brick house".
