Happy Busy Continues. . .

This has been a crazy week. . .actually, I'm not sure when things haven't been crazy around here the last time!  Anyways. . .

Pat has been on the midnight shift, which always adds a bit more crazy to our already craziness, but we have still been able to get a few things done.  Last weekend we went over to Home Depot and FINALLY! bought a Storm Door for our front door.  It's only taken us 12 1/2 years of living in this house to decide on the exact one we both like and wanted!  Problem:  Pat is having to adjust the frame around the door in order to make it work.  So far, it's looking goood, so we're all happy.  We're really looking forward to opening that front door up as often as we can!

We also picked out the door knob for the Man Cave.  Yes, I know that doesn't sound very exciting, but it's a big decision!  We put a fancy glass door on that room and we wanted a really cool door knob that would go with the hunting/fishing/sports theme going on in there.  The bar will be begun next week and then we're hoping to put in a small gas fire place in one of the corners surrounded by stone--the floor is slate and we have barn boards on the walls where the bar will go.  Anyway, here is the knob.  Isn't it cool?  It will also have a covered locking device in above it (Aidan will one day be a teen).  The door is wood framed and has an old fashioned door bell.

While working in the Man Cave, we had the hockey game on and I looked up and there was Aidan wearing one of Pat's hunting vests.  So cute!  He had picked up the Turkey caller and was doing a pretty good job!

Pat comes off the Midnight shift this morning. . .yeah!!!  Tonight we're going to the Free skate with Aidan and then tomorrow I have off and will go to Aidan's school to read a couple of our favorite books to his class room. 

We're picking Aidan up early from school--only 45 minutes--and then heading down to Charlotte to see some friends who have gotten tickets for us all to go to a Hurricans vs. Capitals game!!!We'll be wearing our Red and yelling Go Caps!!!  So, look for us if you watch that game!
