Columbus is a happy man-child now that he has his own room. He finally got most of the way moved in last week. The first thing he did, before he even moved in any furniture, was hang his Oregon Ducks wall calender up. Next, he hung his American flag, then his copies of the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
I think that he did a good job on it!
We woke up Saturday morning to freezing temps. I knew it was supposed to get down into the twenties, but I thought we had a few more days. Wrong I was, and consequently our water barrel hoses' froze up on us. We had no water all day Saturday. My Man and Columbus got to work moving the water barrels into the enclosed wood stove area as soon as we got home from the coin show. They also got the rest of the wall finished - they hadn't done between the bottom of the mobile and the ground, they had only got the three big walls up.

They feel so, so, SO good!!!
Aw, and I saved the best for last. If you don't know Lotta Joy from Witless Relocation Program, you can check out her blog here. Back in October, when I did my wool blanket giveaway, she made it pretty clear she wanted one. I think that she may have even whined a little, but I can't be sure, the whining I heard may have just been normal background news at my house....lol. At any rate, she is a super nice person and she always leaves me thoughtful comments, and I love an opportunity to share and make people happy, so I surprised her and sent her one with the help of Kymber from Framboise Manor.
As a thank you, she sent us the sweetest handmade card filled with ten little owls that she made! Can you believe how cute they are? She even made seven boys and three girls - one for each of our kids! I love them so much I am going to frame them so that I can keep them and enjoy them forever.
