Working Weekend

We've had a working weekend around our house. It's the first time in about 6 weeks that we've been here, not gone anywhere, I've not worked at least part of the weekend, or something like that. So what did we around the house - fun, fun ;) We've gotten Luke's room completely cleaned out now, but we're still getting everything reorganized downstairs where we moved all of that stuff that filled the room. And of course, we've been going through it as we moved it, so it's just been a blast. Wes has finished staining Jackson's new toy chest that he got for Christmas, and it's just begging to be put in the den under the desk! Overall we've gotten a ton done this weekend, but it's all those little things that make you wonder where the time went, lol. Our best Christmas present to ourselves was our Roomba. We used to have to sweep about 5 times a day picking up after Jackson, but now, we have our trusty friend, who does it for us. Jackson just stands and watches it, still not quite sure, but he hasn't jumped on it yet.

Jackson, of course, ran circles around us as we worked. We did decide to move his rocking chair downstairs in hope that he may sit still, at least for a few minutes a day. I think it's going to work...

Last night Wes grilled steaks for us, and I just had to share his reminds me of a postman - neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow...nothing stops a man from his grill, right :D Of course, I'm not complaining b/c I love my steak!

Today we've just done more around the house, but since the sun was finally out and the weather wasn't bitterly cold, I took Jackson outside for a while to let him run off some energy. He loves being outside, which is great b/c so do we! Here he is taking a (very) brief break from dragging around the broom.

He loves to climb up in the Auburn chairs, then climb back down, and repeat.

Hats don't stay on his head very long, but we keep trying.

Playing on his gift from Santa. The funniest thing is to play peek-a-boo with him using the different holes on the sides. He just laughs and laughs!

Playing around the plastic was electric - just look at that hair!

Hope everyone has had a good weekend. We're just settled in front of the tv watching football now. Surprised at the way Arizona is playing, and hoping that Pittsburgh plays well and wins tonight!

Such cute photos of J. I have Roomba envy...but I think my ROOM may be too large for it?!

I am SO glad to sun was back today and that is was warmer than 45!

I wonder if a Roomba would work at our house. I think it might freak the dog out. :)

Those pictures of Jackson are to cute.

Oh and Wes sorta looks like a Ninja :)

Wonderful photos Heather! Jackson is growing SO fast.

My house is a terrible mess. I hope that tomorrow, I will make strides in getting it cleaned up!! Keeping my fingers crossed.

I love the new pic!!! :) And, that pic of wes is FAB! Hehe. So, you like the roomba? Does it work on carpet too?

Heather said...

Roomba works on hard wood and carpet and adjusts if it rolls over a rug as well. We're loving it so far!!! Tammy, there are ways to set is up to work in big rooms - you know what our house looks like and we just block it in 2 rooms at a time.

I love my Roomba! I have the exact same one that you guys do. Most of my condo is one big room and it will do the whole thing. Gets a lot of cat hair. :) Jackson is adorable.
