famer Ian

The other day Ian wanted to play with his tractors so we got them out and he quickly realized he needed his farmin' hat.  I had no idea we had a farming hat so I said "ok you better go get it". He came out with this hat on.  He proceeded to play with his tractors and then decided we needed to g outside for some gator time.  Oh and the coat that he has on came from friends of ours who are also apart of the Clay Fire family.  Ian wore this all day Monday, slept in it Monday night and took it off long enough to put a new shirt on under it.

Nana's Chair

Every since we have been in this house and had this table (no matter which chairs we've had) Ian considers the chair he is sitting in to be his Nana's (his Great Grandma) chair.

Pumpkin Picking

Last week it was time to get some pumpkins.  This year Poppy had a great pumpkin season so we headed over to pick. And what other way is there to pick pumkins than having to get to your destination via a tractor.

Ian talk

Z house funnies is now being referred to as Ian Talk.

So in this edition we have:
  • tell me about it- when we ask him about something he responds with that.
  • where'd you bought this from- he is forever asking where we bought things from. He asked us this past week where we bought his fingers from.
  • sparking spot- parking spot
  • I have lunch at Barbies- Arby's
  • I can't do it I don't have big muscles- one of his many excuses or attempts for us to do something for him:)

A couple nights ago all 3 of us were in our bed "watching" a movie I say watching like that because well Marcus was on his phone and I was on mine so Ian said "I need to get my phone" he ran off to get his LeapFrog phone and hoped back into bed.  He started pushing his numbers and what not and then held the phone up to his ear and started chatting away.  When he put it down we asked who he called and he said "Grant" (his uncle) and we asked what he was doing and said "don't know left message" we followed that up with an ok.  He then said "I'll text him later". I did say he is like a parrot, but I will say I don't often as in almost never and if I really think about never have left a message and then texted the person.

As of right now he is going as Mike from Monster's Inc for Halloween, this is just one of many dress rehersals we will have.

Ian's weather forecast, he is just about as accurate as the professionals and he does his forecast without any fancy radar's or computers:
FYI: I have totally spoiled you with posts for the past couple days and I will warn I have ZERO drafts started...

Bathroom Redo

We (as usual Marcus poured the sweat into the reno while I was the gopher girl and Ian entertainer) renovated our bathroom!!


recessed toilet paper holder where a December 1994 Playboy,
toilet bowl brush and a live electrical wire were found



re-running electrical wires so lighting can be above the mirror

a before and after of the tub area

curved shower curtain rod (hello elbow room)

lights above the mirror make a huge difference

what I'm leaning toward to for rug and towels
(got the project manager's approval!)
What's left:
  • install hand towel bar
  • recessed medicine cabinet
  • install 6 panel doors
  • purchase rug and new towels
