Where is the Power?!

So last weekend when everyone woke up to the fresh snow and couldn't wait to get out and play in it the workers at the Knight household were not feeling the same excitement. To top things off we lost power on Saturday morning at 7:30 and it did not go back on until Monday around 1:00 in the afternoon. But, don't worry we just moved in with Grandpa and Grandma and the guys continued their work. They were still able to replace all the existing windows with their battery tools. We have a great crew over there! They were soaking wet and cold but they just kept working.

Here is the new picture window. We can already tell the difference in the temperature inside now that we have all new windows. No more draft!!

Well without power the siding did not get done last weekend so that was the agenda for this weekend. Of course this weekend they got stuck with freezing rain instead of snow! Now the siding is on and so is the garage door. It is starting to look like a house that people may actually live in. Looks like we will have lots of painting to do in the spring, the siding all comes primed but this is not the final color. So after a week of living across the street the Knights are moving home!

Here are just a couple updated pictures of the kids. These eyes and smiles melt our hearts every day!

Olivia finally started to crawl! We actually thought she would go from her butt scoot right to walking but she fooled us. She still likes to scoot if she is carrying things or she is on the hard wood floor but she is doing more crawling everyday.

And Don't Forget About The Construction...

The construction at the Knight household continues and they are moving right along. The Master Suite is framed in with electrical wires in place and the plumbing roughed in as well. As you can see they have busted into the existing house and the kids are no longer able to be in their rooms.

That means the kids are sharing a bedroom and Trevor and I are living in what we call our studio apartment with the door next to the bed which is next to the kitchen table and across from the living room couch.

Trevor and I did the demo on our entrance way. It was fun to bust down the walls and make a complete mess! Now the doorway has turned into a window and the closet is gone forever.

We were lucky to have another beautiful weekend and the guys were able to start siding the house. It has been so much fun to watch it all come together. This up coming weekend they are hoping for more nice weather so they can replace the rest of the existing window and finish the siding.

Garage and New Entry


Ben was a little more interested in the Trick or Treating this year. Olivia was a little pumpkin thanks to our friend Addie's old costume and Ben got this great football outfit for his birthday from his aunt Kate. When you asked Ben what he was going to be for Halloween he would say,
"I am going to be a 'hut' guy and a football guy". I guess he does quite understand they are one in the same.

Our Little Boy is 3!!

Ben turned three last month and there was lots of celebrating to be done. We had some family over to celebrate with us the day after his birthday and then the following night the Murry's had us over to celebrate Ben's birthday. This is Ben's buddy Cullen.

Ben loves Shrek! Shrek is the only movie Ben will actually sit and watch so we thought it was only appropriate that he had his very own Shrek cake with his face on it.

We have such generous friends and family and Ben got some wonderful gifts. I think Olivia liked some of them as much as Ben did...
