Shenanigans

Um hi,
This is my Dad in his messy office...working.


This is my Dad after he forgot to shut his office door with all of my kids living @ his house this week. Don't let the look on his face fool you because there were some tense moments when he yelled for someone to come do something about all of the disruptions.


I wonder how long it will take before our reservation @ Bacca & Nana's will expire. I sure hope our floors will be done soon, mostly for their sakes..not mine because I kind of like it here.

Nana so kindly offered to help me get the kids out of the house after all of the shenanigans. I really appreciate how she loves my children..it warms my heart. Oh & Baca too (even though he was Mr. Grumpy for part of the day).





I love it when my kids have crazy hair. I sure wish I had gotten a picture of when one of my kids in particular crawled into the fireplace and was covered from head to toe in soot. The little guy kind of looked like Bert the chimney sweep from Mary Poppins. The thing about it was then he ran into the white carpet & couch room. I guess I could go take a picture of the evidence that was left behind...ooops.

Do we get to see when the floors are done? We would like to see what you choose to do the floors in.

Nice photos as always. Hope that the reservation hold up for you. Have fun being with family.

Have a great day.

Thank you for visiting our blog. Just a note steam moping ( Shark has one, but it is not the only one.) It dries quick and with all the little feet that comes in handy. It also kills germs as you clean.

Wow...that's about all I have to say. It makes me feel better about Vance writing with a Sharpie marker all over Mom and Dad's new Mac keyboard...and makes me feel a lot better about Vance peeling the wall board off the wall behind the guest bedroom door at Mom and Dad's house. Hum, what else can I think of? Oh, makes me feel a whole lot better about when Vance spilled lemonade on the wood floor in the kitchen in front of the refrigerator and made the wood warp. The list could go on and on. Mom and Dad are so good natured about it. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it is much of a Deja vu for them since we did the same things as children.
I feel your pain though because whenever my kids make messes at other people's houses, even if it is Mom and Dads, I feel like crying and high tailing it out of there. It's stressful having your kids in someone elses house.

Thanks for watching Stacey's girls yesterday. That was so sweet of you. It sounds like they had a blast with you kiddos swimming in the pool!

Oh no, I don't think I've ever been allowed in the white room. I think I sneaked in there once and walked on the carpet. Its so soft!
