Ashley was out of town for a conference at the end of last week and I got to step in to do the drop-off and pick-up for these three cuties. The best part? Listening to the chatter! They all three have SO much to say and I loved hearing it.
|Ellie is the best biggest sister and Mack is rotten!|
|This is what I got when I asked for a picture Friday morning.|
While Mack was "napping" Friday, I let Freddie in for a few minutes. Not only was he up in my face, try having a 23 pound cat sitting on you! Still, such a sweet boy.
|Needed some attention. Bless.|

Last time I posted pictures of the playhouse it seemed like it should be about finished, but you know the closer a project gets to being finished, the less progress you can actually see. After a big workday Wednesday (I was otherwise occupied Th/Fr...more about that tomorrow) and a lot of work this morning, E.W. and I have the playhouse ready for football Saturday. Of course, there are things that aren't quite finished (plumbing issue, painter needs to finish, and gutters....) but that's always the case, isn't it? Still, E.W. has some friends coming over tonight to grill and watch football and it's ready enough for that!
We don't have much in there right now (I'm talking to you, workbench, power tools, paint, gardening supplies, rakes, shovels...and more) but as time goes by, that will change. Right now we are just going to enjoy our multi-purpose room!
Also, we're taking suggestions about what to call this crazy space. Any ideas?
Here are pictures from each of the four corners, like I've done in previous posts. I'll share some exterior shots one of these days.

UPDATE: Tech won, 38-7. A friend saw the bell on TV and snapped a picture.
Anyone who knows us knows we bleed red and black and are Dawgs through and through. However, when I was growing up, my grandfather was a huge Tech fan. This article appeared in the Atlanta Constitution in 1964.
From what my dad told me, after Tech left the SEC the rivalry died down and the bell was put aside. Some years ago, daddy contacted Tech, the bell was located, and he drove from Augusta to Atlanta to get it. He had the bell refurbished, recent scores engraved, and found someone to make a new leather strap; then he returned the bell to Tech.
Then today Kate saw this article on Facebook (I'm including it below, in case the link ever breaks)...
I know my granddaddy and daddy would be SO tickled that the cowbell is back in action this weekend!
Georgia Tech Football, Vanderbilt and a Dormant Rivalry That Might Ring A Bell

Cousins are kind of a big deal in our family. When we were all together two weeks ago, the older cousins went out together after supper and even managed to get a late-night group picture.
Here's the iconic photo of the same bunch back in 1994. Look how cute they are!
|Sarah, Ross, Worth, George, Rachel, Kate|
Those six are pretty awesome but they're only 3/4 of the group. Here are the cabooses of the cousin train with the two that happen to be their siblings.
|Ross, Scotty, Rachel, Maggie|
Maybe we can get all eight in one shot next time we're all together...
