First Independent Snowman...

Mike and I have decided we've entered the long-awaited "sweet spot."  
The time where there are no diapers or (minimal) tantrums...
The magical spot before hormones (mostly) or girl drama or boyfriends/girlfriends.  
The spot where our kiddos are independent enough but still want to be around us. 
 The time where they can make a snowman "all by themselves" and I can watch from inside while making hot cocoa.
the sweet spot.
We intend to savor it.

Not bad, right?
I did have to help them lift that head up on top of the body.  :)

Crown Molding Project...

Every winter I put Mike to "work" on some big project.  
2 years ago it was wanes coating in the Dining Room, 
last year it was painting the two-story foyer and installing a new chandelier.  
This year it was...wait for it...
Crown Molding trim in our kitchen!
And then, last minute, I decided on our laundry room too...
here's the before:

I love it!
