 Last week JuneBug and I re-organized the seasonal/hall closet. By the time I thought about taking a "before" picture I had already pulled everything out... 
...and started to put some stuff away. These are the top shelves in the closet:
This is where the bottom shelves go:
 The after pictures. The top shelves:
 The bottom shelves:
 Clutter from other parts of the house also found a more permanent home in the newly re-organized closet. Thus some of my more frequently used items are out where I can get them easily. The new home of my crock pot (yes, the top shelves of that unit need organized too):
 A couple items were rearranged in this cupboard. JuneBug showing us how much room is available:

Weekend Visiting

A couple weekends ago a friend of ours got married. It was in the middle of the afternoon so the little boys napped the whole trip up...

...while Ike and I philosophized (is that a word?) over the concept of forgiveness, which I had been reading about in a magazine.
I had big plans to get lots of pictures of my handsome men all dressed up but I guess I forgot to do it because the ones you see above were the only ones on the camera. :)
J and E
We skipped out on the wedding reception so that we could visit some nearby friends.
Sadly this was the only picture of our time with them. But I was glad to be able to catch little C's smile!

Helping Friends

Over New Year's Weekend we went and helped some friends work on their house. But I don't want you to get the wrong picture...we helped with some tearing out. :) They even let me for old times sake use a crow bar to take out some molding around the door.

Ike and Chris tearing out the shower.
Kara and I taking pictures.
While we nursed our babies Kara entertained us by reading Thomas and Friends to us.
Elijah, Kara, and Mary
Hannah snacking on some peanuts.
We bundled up since there was only a kerosene heater
I just realized I don't have any pictures of Caleb or JuneBug. I guess they were too busy playing.

After my Dad posted his new look I thought I would give JuneBug a little facial hair...

Billy Boy

JuneBug singing Billy Boy. I can't remember exactly how it goes so JuneBug gets a different version every time. :)

 our "sled"

JuneBug was a little scared sitting up to ride but enjoyed it much better laying down. Ike was even nice enough to pull me down the rode a bit.
PS Ike got to make THE call to work again today! Yippee!
