A few shots from January

Just a gorgeous view from my living room window of the sunset.  The sunset is actually in the directly opposite direction and we can't see it from our house, but the whole sky was lit up that day.  So beautiful!!!


 Finished staining  baseboards!!! And Leo has almost all of them up!!!

 The stairs are progressing.  Actually, now they are almost done.  Yay!!!
Here's how they looked before:



 Just look at that blue sky.  You NEVER see skies that blue in Houston.  They're too smoggy.

 The kids got home from school as I was taking photos.


 They were excited about candy they had.


 I call her Toothless.
 Thanks for the hat, Aunt Amy!
 I love this view from my living room.  LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!!! My visiting teachers came over and they went upstairs for the first time (because we have a couch upstairs finally) and one of them said, "Do you just sit here all day and look out your window?  I would."












 I do have to admit that I miss Leo wearing his nice business clothes to work.  Every day he came home looking smoking hot.  The Sinclair uniform just doesn't cut it.

Some pictures of the house for Kayli



 This is the corkboard we put up. I intend on coving it top to bottom with pictures.  I decided when making our gallery wall conference quote thingy that I just need to put up more photos.  This fills that need.  :)
 Here you can see our messy toy room and back in that corner is my sewing corner.  Yay!
 More of the toy room. It used to be a garage by the way.
 And the other angle.  The drop cloth is down because I had been staining frames and although the frames got picked up the drop cloth did not.
 And just for fun here's our study/craft room for the kids.  I don't like the stuff I hung on the wall behind the desk, by the way.  I'm going to change once we move our piano and I decide what's going up on the wall beside it.
 The kids' craft shelf.  I would have died for this as a kid.
 And their craft table and chairs.  See Kayli--yours is the only family picture up on our map.
 The other direction.
 And a close-up of my sewing corner, because that is important.
 I don't know where to put those boxes at the end of the desk yet.
 And the study close up.
As you can see, our house is far from put together  yet.  Boxes and junk everywhere.  Yuck.  But it's coming.

My Two Crazies

This is Jubal's most frequent facial expression.  Seriously, what's with this kid.

And Lando was being a Big, Bad Wolf that day and so he's making a lot of mean wolf faces.


I'm not sure if that is biting or kissing.

Loco!


Jubal also purses his lips all the time.  What's with that?

See, pursed lips again. It must be a Colombian thing.  ;)


I love my kids' big brown eyes!
Ah, this expression that I half caught, with the one eye brow raised, is what Lando does whenever he has something serious and definitive to say and he wants you to pay close attention, which is pretty much every other sentence.


The boys went out to play while I shoveled the driveway.



Jubal wasn't a fan of being on the "mountain."


I love having these two home with me.  They're at such a fun age, especially Lando.  I love toddlers.  The end.
