The super exciting going ons of Ben, Leah and Kobe

One of my "internet friends" has a blog and the title of it was something to the effect of the title of this post but with her family's names of course. When I read it it cracked me up. She has a great sense of humor. I thought it would make a great title for this post considering it is going to be all over the place.

*notice the carpeted floor.  This was prior to the tile going in.  I love our tile!

Ben and I are quickly approaching a decision about our windows. I will tell you what, Wallside Windows is looking better and better. We went to Home Depot on Sunday and priced out everything. We talked with an employee that was an older guy that used to install windows and it gave us a good insight into how much we don't know about window installation. After going through the numbers it seems that it just wouldn't save us that much money to do it ourselves. So, we shall see.

I just love this picture of Kobe.  It was taken 2 years ago.  I can't believe time goes so quickly.  Valentine's day will be here before we know it.  

Next Monday Kobe's class is going to a play of Charlotte's Web.  The whole class is very excited.  I am going with them so that should be fun.  Hopefully we have good seats!

And, in closing, I think Ben and I need a pool.

The End.

hi gram, this morning was a little rough! ben and I both wanted to crawl back into bed, but Ben, being the awesome husband and person he is, went to work to make some money :)

and I, being the awesome person and wife I am, dropped kobe off at school, went to the grocery store, put the groceries away and had a phone call/interview with a bride (that sounds pretty promising for Sept.), and then, most importantly, updated my bog and check every one else's blogs

we are ok, just sick. Ben is so sick he is using afrin (YUCK) I am not THAT sick. We went to bed early and will get as much rest as we can. I am hoping Ben takes this friday, saturday and sunday off. that would be nice!

love ya,

First of all....who is going to pay for us to have a pool put in? And yes I too am hoping to take this friday, saturday and sunday off. :)

The pool fairy is going to come and magically wish us up a pool as soon as it is hot enough to swim.

You crack us up, Leah! Hope you guys feel better soon!

You will enjoy Charlotte's Web. I took my students there, and it was cute. We had front row seats which was great too, and then another neat surprise was that one of my past students from 5 years before was up on stage...wow! That was neat too.

Hope the fairy drops us off a pool too:)!

I hope you guys get feeling better soon. It is so hard to keep functioning as a parent when you are sick. Get well soon. Love ya, Gram

ha ha, like your title! :) I hope the window stuff goes well. I hate those necessary house improvements that end up costing way more than you want!
