What's Your Number?

 After 2 1/2 years of living here, we FINALLY have numbers on our house! 
 There are numbers on the curb, but that's not easy to see.  It's identified as "The Yellow House", so people haven't really been looking for the 400.  But maybe now the UPS man will quit delivering 300's packages to us!

I love this bunny, but doesn't it look like he's about to go #2? He's squatting a little bit!

I got the numbers and the frame at Hobby Lobby and just spray painted them.  Marcus had a scrap piece of wood that he cut to fit in the frame.  I painted the polka dots by tracing a medicine cup. And then I glued the wood in the frame, then the numbers on the wood. I attached a wire on the back with 2 screws and Marcus hung it up for me tonight!
( I can almost never get a project done without his help!)
My curtains are closed, because I was tricking Katie into thinking it was dark outside! She didn't nap today, so I needed her to go to bed early! It worked! Right now it's 7:15 and she's sound asleep!

Maybe I should use my free time to clean my porch. I am noticing in these pictures that it's pretty filthy. It's probably not going to happen though. I have a long list of DVRed shows that aren't going to watch themselves! And I am really, really hoping that Katie has never heard the term: Early to bed, early to rise! I am needing a 13 hour slumber from that girl!

Okay, you are TOO fun! I love this and may just have to copy. I have a hard time coming up with outside things.

Oh and don't people address ups packages "the yellow house", etc. I mean come on people. :) That would make things so much simpler.

Are you an Anne of Green Gables fan? I love how all of those houses have names!

I feel you/hear you on the no naps and needing the slumber. And the thing is he is so irritable, naughty, grumpy from not taking them. Give in already! Get some rest!

We have had an early bedtime night too which has been soo nice. I am working on a super cute (in my humble opinion) bunting for the nursery. So happy with how it is coming together.

Hoping for a late morning for you and me both. Oh and of course it is "spring break" from preschool. Last week the director said, "have a great spring break!" all cheery and as a former teacher I totally get that but I was thinking to myself, "spring BREAK?" you are taking away my break! :) Thankfully I have an awesome mama who is going to fill in. :)
