Marin was not too happy with anyone at the start. She had just gotten up from a nap, and was so unsure!!

Keith and the flying pig!
So, after lunch, Keith and I loaded Gracie in the car and headed to Winona. We had not been to Winona since Christmas, so we were itching to get there. We had a great visit and WONDERFUL food. Friday night: hamburgers, poutine (french fries, pepperjack cheese, and brown gravy), baked beans, and lemon squares...yum, yum. Sunday morning we all went to church and came home for the birthday lunch: chicken and dumplins', chicken ring, baked potato salad, broccoli salad, butter beans, homemade rolls, and chocolate cake/choc. icing with vanilla ice cream!! I think I gained 10 pounds just from lunch!! So after stuffing ourselves, Keith opened his gifts. Papaw gave Keith a rain guage. Mama and Daddy got Keith a cordless weed-eater, shirt, indoor/outdoor thermometer, and a handmade tool apron. I think Keith has had a great birthday...and it is not until tomorrow!!!!!
Anyway, we are back in Columbus, trying to settle in to get ready for Monday at work. I'll have more to post tomorrow...I haven't given Keith his gifts from me yet!! :) Hope everyone has a GREAT week!!

Kerri, Hailey, and Harrison
Saturday morning we got up early and started to work. Chan came back and finished the laundry room!! It looks fantastic! We have to caulk some areas, prime, and paint. It is going to look so good. This weekend I started priming and painting the window. It had never been painted, so this was a JOB! I've only gotten one coat of paint on it, but I think it is shaping up nicely.
Out the back door, Chan filled in the steps with concrete. We had to be there so we could leave our mark. We also got Gracie, Cobie, and Patch out there! That was very interesting!! Gracie was scared and the cats were just mad. I think we got some ok prints though.
Keith worked most of the day cleaning out the back hill and trying to get some plants planted. He is working so hard to get us a beautiful back yard this Spring. I think he is going to get it there.
And, last, but not least, our new sink stand. Keith built this entire stand out of scrapes, except for the bead board. The only other thing we had to buy was the paint. Even the sink was a hand-me-down. He has done such a great job on it!!! Hopefully it will be placed and running by the end of this week.
Patch, Cobie, and Gracie loving the beautiful weather! Patch even tried to make a run for it, but after a couple of laps around the carport, decided he was feeling too close to having a heart attack and jumped back in! He didn't go near the gate again after that!!
I hope everyone has a great week!
