My house has NO personality. I wish I could throw paint on the wall, wallpaper for accents, or SOMETHING...
I'm in such a design rut. I hate that I can't do the things I want.
Does anyone have a tip?

Landlords Landlords Landlords

This morning while blowing my nose my ear popped...nothing too out of the norm. There's been a lot of pressure there lately. But apparently this time was different because I immediately became overwhelmingly dizzy and sick to my stomach.

I have spent the majority of today laying down!

Oh, but I've decided that our neighbors must think they live next to a bunch of different toned HORNS and WHISLES! Because at the rate my family has been blowing their nose lately, You're bound to hear some strange noise every 5 minutes!!

But I have decided that if the room does not stop spinning by tomorrow morning, it will be time to go see the doctor!

On another note, it's funny how a Landlord is first to call you THE DAY BEFORE rent is due, just as a "friendly reminder", but when you call them with information of a leak and a soaking wet floor, they don't return your phone calls!
Sean's been calling them all day, but we are yet to get a return call.

So, we made the most of the situation and played with William's Aquadoodle!

Now we are just hoping the Landlord calls back soon.

William's first official haircut!

Well today was the day...William got his first official hair cut. Trust me, it was FAR past time.

First of all, the before pictures:

Ok, granted the wind is blowing in these pictures, so it makes it look a lot worse, but you get the point. These were taken yesterday, so you can see how long it was!

And William was being difficult today, so we only have a side view of what the hair looks like after the hair cut. But hey, you can compare it with the one above to see the HUGE difference!

And then we have the "in the process of" pictures! They take the cake. Poor kid had a rough time. The second Allyson put him in the chair, the tears started streaming, and never really stopped until it was over and he was down playing with the dogs!

Hopefully tomorrow he will cooperate a little better, and I can get a good picture of his beautiful new hair cut!!

He is such a handsome boy now!

What a great day!

Today William and I headed down to my parents house. It was a day spent cheering up Grandma and well, chasing Grandpa around the house!!
William really LOVES his Grandpa. He is like a little shaddow that is constantly under my dad's feet. Poor guy might get stepped on quite a bit because of this, but he doesn't mind. As long as he can be Grandpa's right hand man, he is content!

We spent all day with my Mom so that my Dad could go out and run much needed errands. But Grandma spoils William too much, and lets him play with and do whatever he wants. When he was done with his mad dash, it looked like a tornado had hit the house! Talk about a mess!

When Grandpa got home, William got to help him replace all of the dead bolts in the house!! William loves him a screwdriver!

But as with any little one, something has to go missing in the process. This time it was one of the screws. Guess where we found it? (sorry the picture is kinda blurry)

Yup, the screw was inside the bullet hole in the wall!! Smart little bugger!
(check out how small the holes are!)

Also, Grandpa had to get the eggs from the chicken coop, and William insisted on going with him. But no socks or shoes would be involved. So when he came in, his poor toes were frozen!

But of course, Grandpa was there to warm them up!!

Boy do we love family time!
