Monday we woke up to an exciting snowy surprise after a sneak peek of Spring. Matthew's timidness about the snow has worn off and now I can't keep him out of it (or from eating it). He's also learned to throw snowballs.
We've otherwise had an exciting weekend of home improvement. What started as a project to install a kitty door so we could keep the dogs out of the litter box and keep the kids from accidentally shutting the cats out of the room with the litter box turned into a pipe-capping, sink-removing, saw-buying, garage-rearranging event. Then to make matters better (or worse, I'm not sure) on one of my million trips to Ace, I saw the ads for the Home Expo. We decided to go check it out and glean some tips for the 8,000 other home projects on our list. When we walked in, they were handing out buckets from the local hardware store. Then at the first table some nice ladies gave Matthew candy. Naturally, the boy thought it was Halloween and was pretty thrilled about the Expo in general. He even asked to make a toolbox this time (well, okay he doesn't really get the toolbox thing but asked to either pound or make noise which was highly appealing):
Back home, Catherine was a huge help as we got to work on installing the cat door:
