Busy days!



Well, David had a terribly bad hair day! No matter what we did it stuck straight up in the front, and it didn't seem to bother him one bit!



Silje is looking pretty here. She always pulls open her peanut butter and jelly sandwich to make a butterfly before she even thinks about eating it! She's feeling much better, but we're staying low for awhile so we don't get anyone else sick. We decided to skip church on Sunday (gasp!) because Silje wasn't acting like herself, and David had a small fever the day before. It was actually quite nice. Knut has been working so much for so long, and Sundays are so busy with church, and evening lent services and lots of good "stuff" that we don't get to hang out much. Knut was bewildered for awhile, wondering what we would do, and we decided to finish painting our dressers for the next house. Unfortunately, one of the dressers is stuffed full of kitchen odds and ends that I rarely use like a lefse roller, seasonal cookie cutters, a cookie press, and cake decorating supplies. It also houses all of our birthday decorations and the kid's craft supplies. Although these each get use at least once a year, they're usually in this dresser in the corner. So now all of these things are starting to get packed up, or just sitting in my laundry baskets for lack of boxes. To anyone out there who has boxes...I need boxes! We are moving in 3 weeks! So now the dressers are sanded and primed. I will have the first coat of paint on during the kids nap today, and depending how dry it is, finish it up tomorrow. I ordered the new handles last night, so they should be on the dressers before the move. (yeah!) Unfortunately, my kitchen will look like this for about another day, with the kids constantly wanting to wear the birthday hats they found in one of the laundry baskets!

Hey Gretchen, When we moved we sent out an e-mail to our church (if your church has a e-list it would work) to ask for boxes. And, we also looked up craigslist! We got lots of brand new moving boxes for FREE!
