Fishing in a Tutu, and other weekend musings...

Monday was busy, so this post is a little behind, but here it is anyway:

Ever seen someone fishing with a tutu on?

Well, now you have! I think I could accurately describe both my girls as "tomboy princesses!"

We had a relaxing weekend at the lake "cabin". I finished the flooring in the bedroom and tore up more carpet to reveal lino underneath it. I do not like carpet. I really do not like the very ugly brown carpet we have, so I am very pleased with my progress. The husband is looking a little concerned. Guess he is just not sure when (or where) I will stop. Not sure when or where I will stop either. Really need to make a plan (that I will somewhat stick to - hehehehe!).

Before - the ugly brown carpet.

Close-up of very ugly brown carpet!

Carpet gone - looks better already.

Pulling out the million staples - uugghhhhh!

Vacuum :)

Done ;)

Love it! It looks SO MUCH BETTER, it smells so much better and it will be so much easier to clean. WHY. DID. WE. WAIT. SO. LONG????? (weird, huh?)

Hallway and bathroom are next....

In other news...we had big storm Saturday night - mostly lightning and rain (thank you Lord - we really needed the rain). The lightning always scares me the girls, so not the best rest that night, but we all slept in, so that was nice. We always worry about the big trees we have right next to the trailer - they will have to come down, unfortunately, just not safe :( boo! So I really need to start thinking about more landscaping - natural, hardy and pretty.

Grandparents new puppy was locked away for most of our visits over there - the girls were not amused! Poor puppy hurt his knee last weekend, so he is on "bed-rest". Girls still not amused! Puppy gets in the way when everyone is eating. Girls not amused! Not amused at all :( Hopefully puppy will be allowed out of exile next weekend. So these photos are from last weekend:

This photo shows my 3yr old being chased by the puppy. We were laughing so hard - you have never seen a kid run this fast EVER!

From the top pic to this, this is all I could get of her! I really wanted to get a pic of her face - so priceless!

Grandpa and both girls running again with the puppy.

Grandpa's dock - feeding the catfish.

What a pretty Autumn day.

Busy weekend. Busy week ahead!
