Back in Business!

What a crazy week we've had! Haven't had much time to blog as our computer stuff went haywire. Could have been because I turned off our electricity that goes to the modem, router, whatever kind of stuff. We had to check emails in the basement bathroom, where the modem is. Not the most comfortable place to be! But, we are back in business, for now!

Mom and dad were here for a week. We had a lot of excitement but the most exciting was that Kellen was baptized on his twelfth birthday, March 8! Todd baptized him. I am going to go a separate blog about that as it deserves its own glory!

Todd turned 40 on March 8, he and Kellen have the same birthday. We worked like dogs to remodel the basement for a surprise gift for him. I think he was surprised, at least for most of it. How do you hide paint and new carpet smells? Or the fact that we were all so tired we were sitting around like vegetables by the time he got home from work every day! He did a good job pretending if he knew we were up to something! It is crimson and cream of course (Oklahoma University colors for our non-OU fans=)). We have all been enjoying it!

We enjoyed our time with mom and dad. Not sure how much fun they had, working like crazy on someone elses house! Dad worked on a million different things. He put in a new front door for us which makes my day every time I look it. The old door was, of course, very seventies! Mother painted, painted, and painted. She always says she likes to paint! She also took tons of pictures. I will post some when I have a chance to go through them.

So, back to the same ol', same ol' now. The boys have science class today, Bible study tomorrow, laundry, laundry, and more laundry... But, there is something to be said for same ol', same ol. Some surprises are not always good surprises.

Grandma and Garrett apply the first rolls of crimson.

We had to call in the troops to help move the pool table. Thank goodness for good friends! Grandpa, Michael White, Josh Barnes, Reid Adams, Blake Adams. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Garrett vacuuming, Callie supervising. Gannon just running around in circles! Nothing more fun than a big empty room!

Todd checking things out. Didn't get the OU light put up or other little touches, but it is obviously better than it was!
