We're happily under construction!

For those of you who don't know, we're building a wrap around porch on our house. We're very much under construction. Missing siding, tools & wood everywhere! When it is done, I will (finally) do my porch meme from a month ago.

Here's Sophia sitting w/Diesel on the porch. Ted & Noah were working on the porch today, and Sophia was supervising. Diesel is her bodyguard.

Awe... A hug for Diesel

A KISS TOO! It looks like Diesel leaned down to get one!

Ted & Noah on the scissor lift, nailing boards on the porch roof.

Ted explains to Noah how to set the saw for the correct angle & bevel

DH 'eye candy' - gotta keep you girls happy!

I took this picture from the 2nd story window, through the screen.

My goodness! Diesel is getting bigger by the day! I can't decide who's cuter...OK, I decided Sophia is :)

I bet it's going to be a gorgeous porch once done...can't wait to see the finished product.
Love the picture of Dad and son working together!
Sophia looks like she's the acting forman on the job...gets to sit in the chair all day!
Re the mongolian spots...my Ava has one also...a small area on her back just where the crack of her but starts...when I first saw it I thought it was a bruise...it's not very dark. I asked by doc and pediatrician to make note of it in her chart...so if I fever end up in ER, they don't think I beating her!

Is that sweat I see? Where's a towel when I need one! I'd bring him a cooler.... with ice for my own head!

Diesel has grown so much already, and Sophia is just perfect as always.

I'm holding your porch torch.

kris said...

Yeah... does DH have a brother to spare??? Hehe...

Bet you can't wait for the finished porch... I used to always imagine I'd end up living in a house with a huge porch!

Sarah said...

Hubba hubba... eye candy indeed! You are a lucky lady!! And, I am just as jealous about the wraparound porch... I can just imagine rocking and drinking lemonade with my friends and family on one. Can your DH come build one at my house?? Oh, and a daddy and son team... must melt your heart to watch the two of them together... sigh...

Love Sophia giving Diesel some love... so cute together!
