Tuesday we had a busy morning when our new living room furniture was finally delivered and our new TV was mounted on the wall. We've been having fun transforming our once haphazardly thrown together living room into a "grown up room." We have a few final touches to do (and, yes, one does involve some paint on the walls eventually for those of you who have expressed concern about our painfully white walls) before the transformation is complete, but it already looks much better. Although we do like our new matching furniture set, we'd also like to thank those of you who have donated your used stuff over the years! (A special thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Smith for all their "special" pieces. We took turns saying good-bye to the rocking chair that got a lot of midnight miles with a colicky Spencer. It might not have been the prettiest chair, but it sure was functional!)
|To make room for the new furniture, we put away the much neglected swing. |
Here is Ash enjoying one last swing.
Even though we didn't do any formal projects this week, we did enjoy some past ones. We played a round of our family matching game from the letter M week. It was so cute watching Spencer name off family members. If he couldn't remember a name, he'd simply say, "that's my cousin." I was impressed on how many family members he could name, even remembering the names of all the grandmas (Grandma Keeha, Grandma Amy, etc). We also played with the lacing beads from our letter L week. Spencer had more fun playing with the long piece of yarn, though, and used it to tow his cars that got stuck in the mud. He even toted the yarn and a car to supper at Pizza Hut. Hopefully next week we'll be back on track because I have a lot of fun ideas for the letter P.

Gotta start somewhere, right?
