A treat for grandma.....

Chloe had decided to make grandma a card and it said something like this....

Grandma I would like to offer you a cheeseburger, Love Chloe.

So after school one day this last week she made her a cheeseburger, sliced some tomato's, added pickle and some lettuce, taped the card to it and took it up to her. ( She lives right next door ).

It was a lot of fun, I enjoy cooking with Chloe. Sometimes when she comes to help me in the kitchen with supper and I am in a rush trying to get things done by the time Andrew gets home, I want to tell her maybe tomorrow. That is when I need to think twice and tell myself that daddy does not mind if it is a little late, he enjoys having a wonderful meal made by both of his girls.

All bagged up and ready to head to grandma's.

I have recently had someone ask me if our computer was down being it has been forever sense my husband or I had posted. I would like to apologize it has been a busy last couple of weeks with Andrews dad and sister being here, trying to get back into the swing of things, and the internet being down the last 2 days.

Andrew making bunk beds, for our rapidly growing family.

Chloe playing on her soon to be new bed.

A very proud Grandpa !!!

Baby feeding baby.

This one is for Grandpa Bottoms!!!!!

This is my freshly painted bedroom that my wonderful
husband painted for me. Burnt orange and teddy bear
tan. I love it. Thank You baby.

So as you can seen, we have been busy around the Stroupe home. Andrew has built bunk beds for the girls, and painted the bedroom. I have been trying to get things in order from a really busy last couple of weeks. Now Andrew is really busy with overtime, so I guess I have plenty of time to catch up on school and house work.
