Love my Dad!

Hello!  Sorry no card today.  I have been working away in the basement and it is coming along great!  My Dad is saving our butt's on this whole basement thing!  Almost finished!  Thanks Dad!  I have become quite proficient with a battery powered caulk gun, and I am now a pro at painting baseboard trim!  When I was a little girl, my Dad built houses for a living.  The smell of sawdust and seeing him walk around with his tool belt brings back lots of memories.  This is my Dad with Max in the photo above.  Max likes to try to look like my Dad, so he always grabs his cowboy hat because it looks like Boo Boo's! (that's what they call my dad...long story!)

Along with finishing the basement I have been working hard on potty training Max.  He has some developmental delays and sensory issues so it has been quite a challenge!  We went out to dinner last night and after waiting way to long for our food, I got home and crashed!  That was when I was planning on doing some creative work and having some ME time, but my bed sounded better! LOL!

I will be back tomorrow with some Paper Maniac Inspiration for you.  Did you check out the new Unity retail kit?  Once again, it is a must have!  I am going to get this one instead of the regular KOTM.  If you haven't seen it, check it out HERE (if you want to buy it) and the photo below!  It is FABULOUS!

Okay...I am off to feed the troops before our first basketball tournament game tonight!  It will be fun because the team we are playing is coached by another one of my neighbors.  The last time we played this team, my son and his friend were laughing and goofing off instead of guarding each other.  Even though hubby and the coaches were not happy about it, I thought it was pretty funny!

See you tomorrow!

Your dad and son look so happy together. Good luck with the basement project. I can't wait to see the results!
