Tuesday, June 17, 2008


We love getting together with the family every Sunday, but it's even better when there is a holiday to celebrate. Like the majority of Sunday afternoons we started at the Crabtree's (so we wouldn't interfere with their bed times, just kidding). We had blast and I think combined we pry ate 2 chickens a 1/4 cow and 50lbs of pasta and fruit salad... Okay, that might be exaggerating but you get the point. I was stuffed. Papa opened all his presents and we all sat around and talked while Aanika, Sierra, Savanna, and Trevin kept us entertained. Chersti looks so cute, finally showing off that she is pregnant! It's gunna be a house full with another set of twins running around the Crabtree home. I can't wait.

The Canova house had two parties... Cassidy turned 11 on Wednesday, so it was cake and candles and presents... HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASS....

Chief was next in the spot light. He opened his presents and then enjoyed playing with all of his grandkids. Something all the kids love too. We spent the rest of the time talking and playing a board game. We hand a lot of fun and to every one's surprise Travis didn't win! By the time we made it home we were all ready to hit the sack.

So to all the dads...Papa, Chief, Nate, Kyle, Darin and James and especially Gage... HAPPY FATHERS DAY!

Getting Closer

We finally finished painting and now we can check off another box on our " to do" list. :) Painting the whole house was a big project but well worth it. I finally feel like it is our house... even if I do still call it the "stinky house."
I love the color we picked for Trevin's room. It's fun to have one room different than all the rest and it was fun to see the change when we painted!

We should have gotten carpet this past Wednesday, but long story short, the carpet wasn't in yet. I was ticked, but it all turned out okay. We found out that it is in now and it can be laid next Wednesday. Whoohoo! Another week to get ready. I drew this family portrait on our living room floor. I thought it would be a good way to leave our mark... and it will be a fun surprise for whoever rips out the carpet next :)
Our projects in the house are finally winding down, at least the ones that have to get done before we move in... cleaning the bathrooms and the floors one more time and wiping out all the cupboards and then of coarse PACKING. I don't think the 5 boxes I've packed are considered a good start but hey, I still have 4 days! In Gage's opinion we shouldn't pack for our 1 1/2 mile move anyway, it should all get thrown into cars. If only I had that same philosophy.

Trevin is getting so big, I'm not sure when it happened, I looked at him yesterday and saw a toddler instead of a baby! Wow, don't I sound like a mom... So while I'm in the "mom mode" let me just brag a little... he finally decided to prove he could roll over. Even dad got to see! Then just 5 days later he decided he could sit on his own, and loves it! He has toppled over quite a few times and shed a couple tears but it is still his favorite thing to do, along with reading books with Dad and of coarse eating!
