Beaver Rock Band

Here are the "rock stars" I mentioned in my previous post. *lol*
*laughing* Tanji rockin out and Tim bangin on the drums.
Worn out from a lengthy concert, Tanji was sitting it out on the lazy boy.
Not a great picture, but here's Mike "shredding" the guitar and Vanna on percussion.

We just got home from spending three beautiful days in Beaver. The boys worked on the mudroom beams ~ it's looking magnificent. Soon, they'll be working on the entry way. It's coming right along, we're so excited. Again, we are blessed to have Timmy in charge of building our cabin, he is amazingly smart and conscientious. We could have not asked for a better "busy Beaver cabin builder"!!!!
The windows and doors have all been ordered and should be there in the next month or so.
The log stain and caulking have been ordered, too.
Someday, when we are able to complete the cabin w/the garage butt'd up to the mudroom, it will be even more AWESOME.

It was so cute. After a hard long day for the boys, they'd come home to eat dinner and end the day playing "You're a Rock Star" (or something like that) on their PlayStation.
Mike, Tim & Tanji would be on the drums, guitar and singing to head banging rock music.
Tanji was usually the singer! I have the funniest pictures I will post later.

Matthew's Blog: Casey having his heart procedure today

Update: I just got home ... it's 4:15pm. Well, the surgeon was not able to get the results he wanted. He and another surgeon spent 2 1/2 hours working on him. That's all I know for now. We are disappointed. It sounded to me as if this is just something he'll just live with. Before the surgery, he did say the node was in a tricky spot. When the nurse came out after an hour and a half, she said "it" was being a "real booger". Will know more later. Casey is doing fine, just very nauseated ~ poor kid.

Matthew's Blog: Casey having his heart procedure tomorrow

I'm leaving the house at 6:30 to go over to Sunrise. Hopefully we have better luck this time than we did in December. I worry as much for my 25 yr old as I do my 3 yr old! I woke up at 3am worrying. I'm sure it'll all be fine, but I still worry ... I think any time you mess with the ole ticker... there are risks. I'll be back w/ an update. Please say a little prayer and cross your fingers for a successful outcome.

This is Matthew every night.

Beaver Blog Cabin

Timmy finishing up that last bit of tung n' groove and tar paper.

We forgot our "good" camera, these are from my cell phone.
It was snowy/rainy and cold most of the time the guys were up there, I think we had one decent day.

That's standing at the entry way looking up ... over the dining room/kitchen area.

Tung n' Groove

Standing in the family room looking up at what will be my sisters room.

That will eventually be my sister's bathroom... where that little window will be.

The tung n' groove over my sister's room. Excuse the bit of sun peeking in.
