Tu B'Shvat

Tu B'Shvat is the birthday for the trees, sort of a Jewish Arbor Day. Princess and I celebrated by drawing pictures of trees. After that, we then went for a walk that included the "secret forest" near our house and the two of us singing happy birthday to the trees.
What a lovely day we had!

Rockin' the Wall

Princess and I got to use our rock climbing Groupon.

It was so much fun! We are definitely doing this again.

Messy Work

For our kitchen island, we wanted the countertop to extend to accommodate seating. There are two options to support the countertop—install supports that extend down (that I will certainly bang my knees on because that's what I do) or install flat steel (no knee banging). We chose flat steel.

It is a very messy and extremely loud job. After one support, I pouted until I got found that I needed some safety gear.
Routing wood is a very messy business. Truly. I have never seen such a mess! Thank goodness for the ShopVac!

More kitchen updates to come!

New Door

The kitchen is still in process, but nearing completion. Lots of other project are getting done . . . like a new front door! I forgot to take a picture of the original door, so this is the best I've got. It certainly doesn't hurt to have a cute girl in the picture.

This is the new door. So pretty! It's staying white. I checked the direction for Feng Shui color choices. The choices include a shade of dark blue or white. We're going to stick with white. It makes Princess happy (she didn't want blue) and it makes the Lizard King's life easier.

I really do love the door!

Guys and Dolls, Jr.

In December, Princess performed in her third musical, Guys and Dolls, Jr. With her part in the ensemble, she took on the roles of Hot Box girl, crap shooter, and a police officer. She and all the kids did such an amazing job! The talent is truly incredible!

Being involved with these musicals is definitely one of the highlights of Princess' year. Lizard King built sets for the second year in a row and I even got to help. We all had such a good time, we can't wait to do it again next year!

The new musical for December 2016 has already been announced. We can't wait for Elf, Jr. the Musical. If you're in the area, be sure to contact me for tickets.
