|Mr. Church comes home for lunch.|
More on that later... First, house updates (sick of these yet?!)!
With the exception of some much-needed artwork, the living room has really come together.
|Adios, hideous fan (and yellow ceiling).|
|Hello beautiful fan with remote and dimmer option!|
|And a lovely rug to tie it all together (and to catch some of the fur tumbleweeds).|
Next up, the kitchen. But, in the meantime, I have new kitchen toys to play with. I think I mentioned that Brad ordered me new KitchenAid blender and toaster for me for Christmas. Well, they FINALLY came. And they are so fanceeeee! Ha!
|Why yes, that IS a "keep warm" function. And a digital screen.|
I haven't tested out the blender yet (but I did buy smoothie fixins!), but the toaster is hilarious. You hit the "toast" button, and it very slowly lowers the bread down like a spaceship. The digital screen has a little countdown while it toasts. And then when it's done, the bread very slowly comes back up while the toaster alerts you with a "beep... beep... beep." I giggled a lot.
Back to the snow. Same as house updates, these will eventually stop, but I'm so in awe of my new surroundings that I just assume everyone is as interested as I am.
I went down to our main beach (Silver Beach) on Monday and was totally surprised by what I saw. The beach, which is pretty flat, was covered in giant rolling hills of snow. Well, guess what? Those weren't hills of snow. And they weren't on the beach. When I fell on my butt, then stepped into a giant crevasse, I realized I was actually ON the lake and promptly high tailed it out of there before I killed myself on enormous frozen waves.
|This should have been my first clue.|
|The first row of frozen waves. You can't even see the water over these beasts!|
Finally, a huge CONGRATS to Melissa and Shawn on their new bouncing baby boy!!! I think they should get some sort of prize for kicking off babypalooza '11. :)
