When we moved into our new house it was perfect – easy to do when you get to pick out everything that goes in it. The only problem was that we didn’t have a back fence or side gates. Well….we still don’t have side gates (those are a work in progress), but with the help of my dad and one of my hubby’s army friends – we now have a FENCE! This is especially exciting because it means that Anne and I can play out side (when it isn’t raining) and I can feel safe out there. We have had a few incidents of stray dogs wandering into our yard – not anymore!
Didn’t the men do a beautiful job?!? We still need to stain it, but I think we will wait until the gates are done too.
While the men were building, my mom and I spent our time entertaining Anne and while she napped we started working on Anne’s Halloween Costume.
Here is Anne’s handiwork decorating for Halloween. She put the decals on the window – with help from Nana. She also decorated a spider web with 3-D stickers. I think her and my mom both had a lot of fun together!
Did I mention that I made A LOT of progress on Anne’s Halloween Costume. It is all done except for the waist band…and the pressing of the seams. I am so excited – my mom helped me cut it out and then I whipped out my Sewing Answers Book for the questions I had after she left. Considering that I don’t sew garments this book is a must have for me. I got mine for $8.99 at Costco last week and I am very happy with it.
What did you do this weekend?
