The boys and I spent a good part of the afternoon moving stuff into Donnie's attic while he added some more shelves.  The boys got to use a drill for the first time and were pretty psyched.  One of the things we brought over was a WELCOME sign made by Aunt Debbie.  Johnny, my little goodwill ambassador, was eager to pose.  The sunflowers on top can be replaced with several over seasonal/holiday themed decorations in including a cute watermelon and snowman set.

Joey Brush Kitty

Kitty loves to be brushed, and Joey obliged her this AM.  The sunlight is always pretty coming through my kitchen window in the AM.

This Bradford Pear picture was taken in my front yard a few minutes after these Tufted Titmouse shots.

Pussy Willow in the Morning Light

SmugMug Daily Link

Taken in my front yard.  Light wasn't the best and it's very high up.  A childhood memory from New Jersey where dad had one in his yard.

As if the attic incident wasn't enough yesterday, today I discovered that our shed had a branch speared through the ceiling.  Must have been 10' long at least and somehow come straight down.  Donnie cut it out and used some tar paper and shingles that were lying around to patch it.  I don't think anything inside was damaged.  The CSI poster was just happenchance!

Red-Bellied Woodpecker

SmugMug Link

Not good shots technically.  Sorry!  Male on top and female on bottom.  Both were in the yard and on the same tree within minutes of each other.  Love to watch these guys.  Sometime I will have more time to just sit with the camera and try to get some better shots.

I put my roof through the bedroom ceiling from the attic yesterday.  Nothing hurt but my pride.  Frustrated that I made more work for Donnie.  Of course he took it in stride.  Patched for now.

I'm posting a lot of items for sale on Craigslist this week in preparation for our move.  Exercise equipment, baby items, my father's audio system, and some toys.  I was in the process of putting a play kitchen and the food up for sale when I had one of those Mommy moments and was flooded with a ton of memories of the kids playing with the play food.  There were a few tears and a hug from Donnie.  I ended up posting the kitchen for sale but keeping the food:-)
