Family Updates

Nathan News:

Nathan is getting so big and talks none stop.  He is growing so much he weights 36 pounds and is 3 feet and 2 inches tall.  We started potty training about a month ago and he is now 95% potty trained still having a hard time at nights.  Nothing I am worried about.  We love it when he goes potty, he says "Pee Pee Potty" to anyone that will listen and in a high pitched voice.  It is so dang cute.  He has been into volcano's lately and loves to lay in mom and dad's bed and have dad tell him stories about a "Big Volcano".  It is so fun to listen to them, Nathan will repeat the last 2 words of every sentence Rich says, with such awe.  Nathan also loves to copy Rich, whenever Rich is on the phone Nathan is at his feet repeating everything he says, as well as all the actions Rich does.  It is so cute!!!  Nathan loves chocolate milk as many know he calls it "Pshsht" and now adding "Chauky Milk".  He loves going to Nursery and loves to be home.  Anytime we get in the car to go somewhere he always says, "I home."  I am so glad he wants to be home, sometimes drives me nuts but I love it.

Richard & Brittney News:
Rich is staying busy at work.  He works Wednesday thru Saturday.  It is nice having him home for three in a row.  Especially on Monday's because this is when I have all my baby appointments.  We have been going jet skiing with some friends for the past couple of weeks and have loved it.  What a great stress reliever for all of us.  Plus I can't complain about the tan I am getting.  I am 36 weeks and 3 days pregnant, can't wait for the baby to be out and hoping it happens very soon.  I am staying very busy with my calling at church and with Nathan.  Things are almost ready for the baby to come, crib is up and clothes are washed.  Funny part is we don't know what we are having.  At first I hated the idea but I love it know, I don't think we will ever find out with our other children what we are having.  I can't wait for the doctor to say, "It's a ????" 

We hope all is well with everyone and miss all our family and friends!!

Something Old and Green to Something "looking" New and White

So I purchased this desk at the Small Mall for $20 and decided to redue it for our new computer desk. Our other one had its legs broke off in the move from Hawaii.  Yes we did still use it for almost 2 years, it started hurting our backs trying to type on a desk that is 2 feet to short.   

Nasty green white washed desk and brassy hardware.

Spray painted the hardware black.

Spray painted it white.

Put a smoky glaze over the white and added the hardware back on.

I LOVE IT!  Sorry the final picture wouldn't rotate.  I will post a finished picture soon.

Jet Skiing

The past couple of days we have been going out with our friends jet skiing.  We have had so much fun, Nathan has even enjoyed going out.
