Hardwood stairs & a boy named pickle...

Removed the carpet from the stairs this weekend and installed hardwood. These are walnut.. The risers are just pine painted white. Not bad for an old guy.. :-)

Vika was playing football camp. She put on J's basketball shoes and back pack.

The Lemen Abts clan had us over for bbq on Sunday.. yum! The kids went fishing in the creek behind Eric's house. They caught fish and put them in a tub for awhile to admire before letting them go. Vika thought it would be nice of us to give them a basketball to play with. Heavens knows, fish need a basketball :-) This was Amy telling Vika that the fish really didn't need the ball to play with.. LOL Mel's friends from Ohio were in, super people. There son's nick name is nickle pickle..

Coloring riding out the storms

Thank God we have not taken too much damage in the Spring storms. So far to date we have only lost 3 tress. This was yesterday May 25, 2011. Most of the schools & businesses from the area sent everyone home early because of the tornados that were predicted.

Anyway... we kept calm, did home work and colored.. If you look at the video, you show I scan to the TV to show all the red on the radar.

Prayers go out to all those who have been affected.
