Here is the living room without furniture.
Here is the new furniture.
Once Nate gets home and we get the TV in the entertainment center and the speakers up I will add new (hopefully better) pictures.
Right now I am watching our backyard very carefully. It has been raining and thundering and lightning-ing (hee hee) since about 4:00 this morning. Here are a few pictures of the backyard, the first one was before I went and cleaned out the drain. The last picture is our little stream, except now it has raging rapids. :)
I am also waiting for our new furniture to arrive. I will post again when it gets here!

So as soon as she is better it's going to be back to half and half to drink and mashed potatoes with butter and half and half. It's hard to get weight on without resorting to junk food. The kid already has an addiction to Chocolate Milk and cookies.
Keep your fingers crossed that she is better by Tuesday, we are supposed to start pre-school that day.
I'll post again when she is better.

Friday we ended up with 7 1/2 inches of snow- not bad for the first official day of Spring eh? We made a snow bunny- thanks to Grandma Karen for sending the bunny ear glasses.
Saturday we went downtown and to the Children's Museum and Navy Pier It was a blast, Grandpa had lots of fun sculpting his likeness in clay.
Here is a view of Chicago from Navy Pier.
Sunday we hid a basket for Maddy and then we went to Shedd Aquarium. They have a great show with Dolphins. The aquarium was huge we spent the entire afternoon wandering around.
Monday I took the folks to Shaumburg for some shopping.
We had so much fun with them around, I can't wait for the next visit.

Here's a funny video of Maddy and Nate playing soccer in the basement. Sorry for the camera work, I was trying to play along too. :0) Stick with it though she actually kicks the ball at the end.
This next picture I took in the dark I think it turned out pretty good.
