Build a Bear (or an elephant)
We had a very much needed trip out of the house this morning. We met our friends Heather and her kids and Jacky and her oldest and went to Jordan Creek and Build a Bear. Gabe chose to build an elephant and name him Horton, he just went to Horton Hears a Who with Grandma and Grandpa this past weekend so Horton the Elephant was fresh on his mind. He chose the elephant and a sound box to go inside, so Horton even sounds like an elephant. Then he took it to the fluffing machine where Horton was filled with fluff. After that Gabe had fun giving Horton an air shower and combing his hair. When he was all clean he decided Horton should wear a red baseball cap and have a pair of cool sunglasses, Gabe tends to think the sunglasses are his to wear even though they really don't fit him. I of course forgot to bring the camera with so we only have a picture of the finished product. We are continuing to work on the house, I posted a few pictures of our mess right now. It is slowly coming along and hopefully will start to get a new roof this weekend. Since these pictures most of the upstairs bedrooms are done being painted with the exception of Ty's room which needed some work on a wall so that one will happen soon. The hallway is being painted and most of the first coat of paint is on in the living room. we are continuing to work in the kitchen and our appliances were delivered yesterday even though we weren't quite ready for them yet, we had to do it yesterday or not until April 20th so right now we have a fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher sitting in our living room. The fireplace wall is still a mess but there is a great cad drawing done of what it is supposed to look like. The weather is finally nice today so we are hoping for some outside time again. Pray for good weather for the weekend so the roof can get started.
