Last rose of summer
So we used to have two oddly placed ceiling fans. We never used them, and our ceilings are kind of low for ceiling fans. When Herb put the new doors on my kitchen cabinets I had him switch the direction one of them opened... and it hit the ceiling fan blades. So that was the catalyst for finally taking them down.
It took Bob a little bit more work than anticipated to get to this point...
Rustin came over to help and brought Eden. The girls played Barbies while the men had a great time trying to get the fans down.
Apparently these fans are not meant for such low ceilings so when they were installed they just pushed the down rod up into the ceiling and the top of the fan (that would normally be attached at the ceiling) was attached to a 2x4 spanning a joist up in the attic. Yeah. Poor Rustin got to climb around in our attic unhooking fans that had the tops of butter tubs keeping insulation out.... ayiyiyi.
She doesn't sleep well when she's teething and she has no schedule.... so this happened one afternoon; asleep on top of a book and the register.
I made her a cloak. She's either Elsa, little blue riding hood, or an elvish princess.
Up late... she wanted her Tom's on. "Tom-tom's" according to Cecily.
Playing with the old camera that she somehow managed to fix.
Obviously the kitchen floor is the best place to curl up with our church shoes, tom-toms, and blankies.
Silly girl loves to be outside.
She points at the raspberries and says "Mmmmmm." And then tries to eat anything that's remotely pink. Almost all of the berries we've gotten have been eaten outside.
Little miss figured out how to pump! She's pretty proud she can swing all by herself.
I took a bucket to pick tomatoes and they each needed one too. Emmy is eating her tomato. "Mmmm!"
We moved to this house 4 years ago... and I still don't know very many people on our street. So we went a little out of our comfort zone and invited everybody over for Root Beer floats tonight. Emmy thought the ladder golf was the best thing ever.
Our setup... three kinds of Root Beer and lots of snacks.
We had a pretty good turnout and we met some people we hadn't met before. Overall I think it was a good evening! Cecily had fun with G and S... but William makes her nervous. Ha.
