4 weeks and counting. . .
Walls are painted in the bedrooms.
Here's AJ in our bedroom.
Texture and LOTS of sanding occurring in the bonus room.
(picture below show you how much I LOVE the sanding - DUST EVERYWHERE)
The opening at the bottom of the stairs is the master bedroom and bath.
We're just waiting on gutters and lights to be installed.
In the spring we will receive the cement walkway, driveway and ALOT of landscaping.

We took Ms. AJ trick or treating to a few of our friends houses and met some friends along the way. Woof woof!
Monday was Patty's Halloween Party
Bobbing for apples, pin the hat on the scarecrow, pumpkin carving, sack races
. . . I'm tired thinking about it all.

Before winter hit yesterday AJ played in the dirt and watched "Hunter and Boys" -as AJ calls them - clean up.
Sunday, October 24
1. AJ saying her full name: Audrey Jean Hochgraber
2. Planting a evergreen in a pot - we are going to use it for AJ to decorate this X-mas.
3. Playing the piano and taking a break to give Mommy a scary look!
4. Sitting in her big girl boaster seat. (we've been placing the high chair up to the table so it's really not that big of a change - but now no more monster high chair in the way :)
5. Pull ups in the bonus room - we had to get some fresh air.
Friday night AJ & I & the Ritchies went over the Petsinger's for Pizza Friday. AJ & Hattie played with the puppy and the "nay's".

At the library.
Audrey just loves to lay on her "tummy" and read away. I believe this was her 5th or 6th book she did this with. She even put the books away when done "reading" out loud. I had to keep reminding her we were at the library.
And of course, just like at home Audrey loves to put together puzzles and sing 'A, B, C', 'A, B ,C' over and over and over again! Again, had to reminder of being quiet.
House Update: Electrical, Plumbing, Heating, Insulation, Windows, New Driveway, Roof - check!
Tomorrow - sheet rock and siding.

My favorite snack is Apple & Peanut Butter.
I cut it in half and load it with a ton of PB.
Audrey always asks for apples so today I loaded her up too.
I'm not sure if you'll notice the difference,
but a number of trees came down on Friday.
Wednesday, October 6
Each day after work I drive home and think of family time, peace & quiet, what am I going to make for dinner and recently I added, "What did they get done?" to the list.
Open up the addition to the existing house.
And - like usual - when they dig we find more rocks.
Monday, October 4
An evening stroll with the neighbors.
We took a walk around the block and met up with some of our neighbors -
just soaking up the nice weather.
A little house update -
The opening is going to be the master bedroom window.
There will be one directly above it for a kids bedroom.
Tomorrow they are going to work on the upstairs.
The siding is off, they are getting ready to start framing up the attached garage and bonus room above. But, they are going to finish the bedroom first.
Opening will be a 6' X 2' window that will be placed above the bed.
To the left will be the master bathroom.
