Sweet potato pie!  Yummy!
I got sweet potatos Sunday at church (they were doing a fundraiser) so, since I also got squash, I decided to make sweet potato pie.  I've never had sweet potato pie before, very good!

Augie's latest thing is to roll over when placed on the changing table.  We lay him down & over he goes.  Makes diaper changes & clothing changes a wrestling match!  Sometimes something to play with distracts him for a while, but that doesn't work for forever.  The changing table also seems to be where he likes to practise moving around.

Every year the Marshall fire dept has a program called EDITH (no idea what it stands for) - part of what they do is drive the streets of Marshall, sirens blaring, and all the kids are supposed to go to the end of the driveway & wave.  No idea why.  But Augie was a dutiful lad and made his Dad take him out there, so his mother took a picture.

Oh, how cute!  I love pictures that show scale.  Just how big is David's foot anyway?  That shoe looks huge!  lol

Augie cuddling with my Grandma.  He likes her now, he reached for her as we were leaving her house today.  :)

Augie with my uncle Dale.  Augie made lots of adults happy this weekend with his willingness to be held by them.  :)

My very full freezer.  David bought ice cream but couldn't fit it in the freezer so he put it in the fridge.  I had to rearrange things to find room.  :)  We are going to buy a chest freezer this week because I want room to freeze things I make (most of the space is currently taken up by things I've made, like pureed veggies for Augie, tomato sauce, salsa etc)

At 3 a.m. Augie cried so I put my glasses on to go nurse him and realized that one of the bows had come off - the screw got lost somehow.  I can't find it (they are so tiny, that just seems impossible) so I'll have to go to the eye doc & see if they have a replacement screw.  Luckily they will stay on so I'll be able to drive there!

The house David owned for 10 years in Marshall was moved today to a new location.  He lived right by the hospital & they've been buying up houses for an expansion project.  Someone here in Marshall bought several of them and is moving them to a new location so they can be rented or bought by new people.

Here it is up on the trailor:


They had to lower to the ground the power lines (which you see to the right) to get the house off the lot.  Then, everywhere they drove, they had to do the same to get the house through.  (Hopefully they didn't take a path with too many powerlines overhead!)

Here is the house stopped along the street while they get ready to keep going:


We knew where the house would end up (eventually) so we drove the streets we thought they might have taken to see where they were.
"Hello, 911"  "Yes, I can't find my house!"

Oh, here it is!  We found it randomly (to us, anyway) parked alongside a street.  Just imagine that phone call!  "Hello, City of Marshall"  "Yes, is it ok if we park our house on this empty spot for a few days?"


Here is where it will end up eventually.  With all the rain we've had lately, you can see why it didn't end up there today!
