In Which We Spend All Our a bonus house tour!

We've had an expensive (but exciting!) week at our Rock Star castle...

After our last yard sale lawnmover burst into flames (really), Kirk decided to get an electric mower.  I think it looks like a Little Tykes toddler car, but it's SO quiet and nice!

A major appliance purchace- our new washer and dryer!  I LOVE them- they're also very quiet.  I've never had a front loader before and I'm eager to see if they are really as awesome as I've heard.

Plus:  A tour of Jeremy's new house!  I recorded it THREE times- this one finally took after the first two were mysteriously deleted.  Check it:

Snow Day!

It's snowing pretty much non-stop today. My cell rang at 5 AM this morning to tell me that Butler is closed today. Luckily, I teach online, so the weather is never a problem for me! Both Kirk and Jeremy had to go to work, and they both called to say that the roads were not too horrible once you get to the main road. However, it is SLOW going!

Sarah has not shown much interest in going out in the snow. I think I'll be staying at home today! Errands can wait.

Another Day, Another Dollar

I'm (Cathy) am working a temp job at Wichita State as a bookstore cashier. The job will last anywhere from 2-4 weeks for the student rush. So far it is not that bad.

My very first job was as a grocery store cashier at Cub Foods. I am amazed at how different the cash registers are now. At Cub, I had to remember a lot more and DO a lot more. Now the computer does nearly everything for me! It's nice.

I had forgotten how hard it was to be on my feet all day. Years of cushy office type jobs has spoiled me.

It's not a bad gig, but I know I'll be ready to leave when the temp job is over. They use the same temps over and over, so it's possible that I will be asked to work the Fall rush as well. If I have time, I'll do it! It's not a bad way to earn some extra money.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

We started things early this year. We opened our stockings last night, then did the traditional reading of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

We also played with the watercolors Cathy got at the dollar store.

This morning was filled with the gifts from under the tree. Santa heard that Jeremy likes The

Kirk liked both the shirts he got this year!

Also: Salmon. Yum Yum!

Cathy will no longer get lost every time she walks out of the house. (Hopefully.)

Sarah enjoyed opening her present from Vanessa...

...and was even more thrilled when she saw what was inside!


She also liked opening her present from Grandma and Grandpa!


We imagine that she will squeak this until the squeeker breaks.

We had egg dish for breakfast, and will be having ham for Christmas dinner. Merry Christmas everyone!
