House Part 2 and another visit to GA :)

Here are some recent pictures of the house addition taken about two weeks ago.  Not much has been done since then; we are waiting on the tile to be done in the bathroom and laundry room.  The guy who is doing that has been really busy apparently so we are in a holding pattern right now.  The pictures are not too exciting to look at since it is just walls and windows but we super excited about the progress!!

I took the picture from the new hallway which was part of Cohen's old room.  This hallway now extends into the new part of the house.  The picture is looking into the remaining part of Cohen's old room which will now be the office.

New hallway and new doorway to outside

Looking into the laundry room (the washer and dryer is currently in a very large cabinet in the middle of our kitchen--it will be so nice to have a laundry room!)

Cohen and I took another trip to GA this past weekend, even though we were just there for Easter the weekend before.  Adam did not go with us because he had appointments at the VA on Friday and Monday and also wanted to get some things done around the house and in the yard...much easier to do without an almost 3-year-old running around (as those of you with children well know!).  We went to GA for the birthday party of our friend's, the Muschara's, son Colt.  He turned 5 and we just could not miss the party!  Cohen, Marley and Colt had such a great time playing together and I know Colt had a blast at his birthday party.  Of course, I forgot my camera like I usually do when we go out of town and the only pictures I took were with my phone.  I did "catch" Cohen and Marley playing "doctor"...probably the cutest thing I have EVER seen.  They were lying on the floor taking turns being the patient and the doctor.  Here are a few shots from my phone...not the best quality.

And a couple of pictures of the two and them jumping on Marley's new "big girl" bed in their undies.  It is very hard to keep the two of them clothed!!  They are two peas in a pod!


We went to GA for Easter weekend (what a surprise!) and celebrated with my family.  There was an Easter egg hunt, picnic and kite flying at my parent's church on Saturday, then we went down to Macon to stay with my cousin, Lorra, and her husband, Ben, on Saturday night.  Lorra and I decided to cook Easter lunch for the family at her house on Sunday.  This was the first time we have cooked a holiday meal for everyone--about time since we are both in our 30's!  My mom, aunt and grandmother brought a couple of dishes each but Lorra and I cooked the ham and a lot of the food.  It took us all morning but we had a great time cooking and being together.  Lorra and Ben had another family over for Easter lunch as well so there was a house full of people.  Here are a few pictures from the weekend.  Of course, no family picture was taken :(
