The other day Dane comes running up the stairs and into the house, his eyes are bright and his cheeks are bright red, in a very excited voice tells me the backyards are on fire.
The neighbor dumped hot ashes out in her yard......If Dane wouldn't have told us she probably would have lost her house plus the neighbors next to hers. It spread quick enough to burn  parts of four yards. Mostly ours. The house is where the fire started but the fireman is in our yard. They called it a forest fire and the MSFD had to come. Go figure.

A few days ago we heard that someone we know had surgery. I was home with the kids and I was telling them about it as I went in to shower. As I got out of the shower two things occurred. One I didn't have panties and was going to streak to the dryer to get them and the other.....A dumb jingle Elaine from Seinfeld sang. Get well get well soon we want you to get well.

Do you know where this is going? Yup that's right.
 I wrapped a towel around my head (instead of my body) and boogied and sang that darn song my entire way to the dryer in the mudroom. Now MY children are used to this and just roll their shocked little eyes but the neighbor kid that was peeking through the glass on the door before she knocked as I danced by... she was shocked.   

Next time I'll make sure the blinds are all pulled.

                         We finally finished the downstairs bathroom. I love love love the vanity. I had purchased a different light fixture but the mirror was so large I had to go back to the store and get a different one.
 We changed some things around. The vanity used to be where the tub is.
 Dave built an awesome closet! And added a light!!!!!!! 
Chrissy picked out the paint and Mimi picked out the shower curtain.

It took all summer long and would have been done two weeks ago if I hadn't procrastinated painting.
Now I just have to put pictures on the walls. Which is something I can't wait to show you all!
