December - a Month to Remember

 My sister brought over my niece's new baby for Mom to meet for the very first time last week!  Here are a few photos:
Mom and the "Sweet" Baby
Marilyn, Mom, and Baby "Sweet"
Baby "Sweet" is beginning to be OWLY in her Owl Pj's!
It was a fun visit for us all!  Nathalie was so cute -and we have some picture perfect memories!

December 2012 : With the help of family, we were able to move the contents of Mom's apartment into a box truck and into our home and garage - all in a matter of about 3 hours or so.  Many Thanks  to you all!  Mr. Wonderful wasted no time in starting work on the addition, and as long as my eldest boy was in town, he was drafted in to assist with removing the large window behind the couch....good thing, because my back is not up to that kind of lifting!  Click on photos to enlarge....
Window is outa here!
Monkey shines....
Rich and Mr. Wonderful - too pooped to pop!
Rich brought along my grandson, Nate the Great - he was good as gold during the entire visit - and helped me with the daily egg collections and chicken feeding chores too.  Below, he is seen with "Peaches" - a new addition to our family.  Mr. Wonderful crashes on the couch behind them!  Click to enlarge photos.

Mr. Wonderful and BOTH DOGS are exhausted....
This week, hubbs have been working on the rough in for electrical, and he hopes to have a new door in place where just the hole in the wall is visible at this time.  We are making progress!  Every night Mr. Wonderful is out there working till 10pm to create mom's very own new bedroom.  Not sure when this will be completed, but - still a work in progress, and God has been blessing it, as we see how everything has come together just at the right times.  More later...

Gosh Monica I can feel your happiness and contentment right out of your blog. I know this is a gift and a win win situation.

Rick is handsome! You and your mom look alike! And poor Bob looks content but pooped.

That addition is going to be lovely!

Wow, your gene pool is very strong in the faces of you, your sis, mama and son! Mr W is so dang cute and handy too! Love that Christmas cactus in full bloom. Is that Dixie's mama Prairie? Why can't contractors work as fast and well as Mr. W?

What a cutie pie that new baby is and I know your Mom was really happy to be able to spend time with the little one. It sure is great when families can get together to help each other in these big jobs. It's a good kind of exhausted when a job is getting well done! :)

Glad your mother is there with you to enjoy such a sweet baby. Your husband reminds me so much of my own. Always building, remodling or whatever needs to be done. It's a blessing to have these men in our lives.
