Sunchip project winter update

Is under snow and in an attempt to not violate my rules I am not touching or moving the snow around the bags. When it melts - if it melts - I will take photos.
The project is still going, nothing has changed and weekly pictures will once again resume in spring for winter I will run out and snap pictures whenever it clears up.

This is roughly what my home looks like right now.

For those that came to our open house/greet sisters day I am happy to tell you that we finally got rid of all that junk that had been in our driveway. It had a toilet, cabinets, old carpets and just massive amounts of junk that we pulled out of the house during the move in. Thankfully all those items were taken to the nearby dump and junked, leaving my driveway looking nice and clean - not to mention wider! LOL

So far our new roof is wonderful! Our fixed fire place is amazing! All in all we love our new home and I am trying to finish the last of the unpacking as well as finish cleaning the walls and floors in this large home.

Little man and allergies

So far in our family my poor daughter has gotten all the worst in allergies from both her parents. She has my hayfever a few of my food allergies and at least one of my skin allergies. From her papa she has asthma (severe) and an allergy to cats.

Yay! Fun right?
Not really. Putting her into public school this year has caused me no end of stress and concern. That, however, we will save that for another post.

Little man until today seemed like he got the best of his parents. I have said on many occasions that my daughter is a mirror of me and Little man is a mirror of his father. During their baby and toddlerhood this rang true. Now, however, they are showing that our genes did mix a little.

Unfortunately for my son that means he does have an allergy.

Don't worry the dark mark on his neck it's a dirt speck on my camera. The scratches, however, are from a recent disagreement between him and our dog. It went something like this, Patch wanted to escape the confines of a box downstairs and my children didn't want him to. In the following scuffle our dog managed to escape the box by clawing my son in the face and then running for his tiny little life.

While I did understand my dogs motivation, he did get sent out side in punishment for inflicting wounds. Now I am not allergic to dogs per'se, however, I am allergic to getting scratched. I swell just as bad when getting scratched by our dog when I attempt to give him baths.

Normally a bath and some benedryl work like a charm. That is to say it stops hurting and four to five hours later the swelling and discoloration goes away. I am very relieved that my son has reached an age that he can have benedryl in small amounts when the need arises.

Life it seems is a constant adventure!

Hubby's work party

My hubbys work had an open house last week and the kids had a ton of fun. cookies, candies, bad singing and of course face painting. Little man was all set to get spider-man on his face until he realized that someone would have to touch him.

We are still cleaning, unpacking and trying to get the house to work correctly. Small wiring issues, plumbing and other trifle things are still being worked out. I won't be able to do Christmas lights or a tree until next year again due to wiring issues.
I love our home but its going to be a while before its all put right. To many years of misuse.

Big sis and her hubby behind her. Our father sitting on the couch.

Grandma D and Prissy spent most of Thanksgiving in this chair.
This is mid sis who managed to have me out in both of our major snow storms for the month. The second one that resulted in two feet of new snow in less than 12 hours.

Of course since my itty bitty niece and her daughter fell off a dresser 6 hours before train time running around in a horrible storm makes perfect sense.

This was what my yard ended up getting by the end of both storms and the snow had settled down a bit.
Thankfully everyone made it home safe (besides the broken arm) and everyone is amazingly enough not only still speaking to each other but actually thinking of coming back next year to do it all over again.
