And The Wall Came Crumbling Down!

Yes, yesterday Travis removed the rest of the planter box that was plaguing our entry way. Of course, Elizabeth supervised. It already looks so much bigger and better!

Here's the planter box before:

And after:

Elizabeth was watching Daddy to make sure he was doing a good job! When Travis was working, we had to put her in her walker to watch. She wanted to eat all of the bricks and was getting in the way when the hammer was going!

Since the ceilings in the bedrooms are finished, we were able to put the fan blades back up. We turned the fan blades over in all three rooms, because the side not being used looked much better. As always, Elizabeth wanted to help!

We also moved in our dressers to get our clothes out of boxes and off of the floor and a couch to sit on. I think Travis was getting tired of watching TV on the floor! I'm pretty sure Elizabeth is heading for a job in management because, there she was, making sure Daddy was using the vacuum cleaner right and getting all of the icky bugs!
Where did she go?

Aaaahhh! Help, I'm stuck.

Ooo, a zipper!

I've got pretty much everything ready for the party tomorrow. I iced her cake, but didn't want to post any pictures of it until tomorrow. Blick, just to think, a year ago today I was in labor and the doctor said that I would have a baby by morning. Just so you know, it wasn't was the next night!! I thought someone told me the memories of labor and delivery fade, I guess it takes longer than a year! :)

What a good supervisor! That picture with her head thrown back, laughing is so cute!

Can't wait to see the cake!

The planter box was inside the house?

Yes, it was inside the house! It was "the thing" back in the 1960s when the house was built. Seemed like a major bug attractor to me!
