HERE COMES HELP!!
OUR BASEMENT FLOOD AT THE NEW HOUSE!!! THANK GOODNESS THE ELECTRICIANS WERE THERE AND THEY HELPED ME GET THE DRAIN SOME WHAT PLUGGED SO THE WATER SLOWED DOWN A LITTLE BEFORE LUKE GOT THERE. THE WATER ON THE FIELD THAWED AND STARTED TO COME INTO THE HOUSE SO THERE WAS ABOUT 2 INCHES IN THE WHOLE BASEMENT, LUCKLY WE DONT HAVE IT FINISHED TO MUCH DOWN THERE!!
That same weekend we had a bbq at Ashley's with Jamie and Ryan. It was so fun to be with my sisters and their families. We had a great dinner, my sisters can really cook. We had bbq ribs, steak, twiced bake potatos, baked beans, salad, hot dogs, brownies and ice cream. UUUUUUUUUUUUmmmmmmmmmmm, it was so good!
A couple of weekends ago we went down to Boise to make our mantel for the fireplace in our new house. We stayed with Kirk and Ashley, it was so much fun. Kirk's dad has an amazing wood working shop down in Grand View, and was so kind to let us use the shop and some of his walnut wood. His dad is a real great wood workman, and it was fun to see all of his art that Kirk and Ashley talk about. This is our mantel for the master fireplace. I love it because we have didnt have to stain it that is the true color of walnut!!! We had a blast doing it and being able to spend time with Ashley and Kirk was great.
Kirk and Luke sanding in the garage before the finish.
This is Ashley and Kirk plaining the pieces of walnut before we could get started.
