Here are some pictures from a little Valentine's Day photo shoot Andrew and I did last week. I found some really cute cards we are going to send out to family. Check them out here - you get six free, plus free shipping!

Yep, the flip flops have been exchanged for Uggs. The word to describe the weather today is frigid. It just "looks" cold outside and it is. We've had freezing fog so everything is covered in a light layer of ice. Beautiful to look at and take pictures off. Not so nice to be out in. It's 17 outside right now, feels like 5. Tomorrow is supposed to be colder. Woo-hoo! Yes, I really have grown to like this cold weather but am thankful for those warm days we get in between.
Here are some pictures of our winter wonderland. :-)

With all the changes we have going on in the basement I decided to move my scrap room up from there to the main floor so I could have a room with a door I can close. It's so nice! So, I turned Andrew's playroom into my new scrap room. Although Andrew calls it Mommy's playroom.
There isn't a closet in it so I had to get creative with storage. I'm pretty happy with how it all worked out though. I still want to paint but that'll come down the road some day. The basement is getting all the attention right now. I'm anxious to create Andrew's new play area down there. He'll be so excited when he comes home from California and all of his toys are in one spot! I even have a special surprise planned for him in his little closet downstairs. More on that later...
Here are some before and after pictures.

Our kitchenette area Blake is tearing out.
The wall and tile flooring will come out next.
See the grey stuff on the floor? Not good if you want to lay hardwood down.
Blake making room for a half wall. (I wish I had taken a better picture but you'll see the half wall completed in some photos below.)
Time to replace to wood subfloor in the kitchenette area.
I have a funny story. Blake had to lay down in the crawl space to screw something in and there are black widows and nasty stuff down there. He was NOT enjoying himself and obviously busy. So, right in the middle of him doing this Andrew runs up and yells down the hole "Daddy? Have you seen my Dark Knight?" Okay this kid is always losing his Dark Knight and always asking us to help him find. I just thought it was funny he would do that. Maybe it's one of those things that you had to be there to find it funny and if it is. I'm sorry. :-)
