Don't try this at home...oh wait -- we did!

We have vaulted ceilings in our place which is nice, but they make changing light bulbs a giant pain. Aaron went above and beyond the call of duty when he decided to change the entire light fixture in our living room (the one we had before was rrrrreally ugly.) Considering that the task involved straining his neck and arms on the tippy top of a 10 foot ladder for 2 hours, the fact that Aaron uttered a relatively small amount of obsenities is a feat in itself. The bonus is that he completed the job and it looks great! Here's some shots of my handyman in action:



While I'm talking about Aaron, I have to mention that Finn pointed to a picture of him today and said "Dadda"! It may be wishful thinking, but after he pointed with his finger a few times and said it, I'm convinced that it was intentional. Way to go Finn, you made your daddy proud.

Changing light fixtures is always sooo much fun. Not. Chris went through our house a couple months ago and changed out all the light fixtures. It was a blast. I stood there and handed him the light bulbs.

Dan just changed the light in Cole's room to a fan. Best to do this when kids aren't in hearing distance. Let's just say we're glad there are no rooms left without fans in them because I'm not sure he could handle another. Your place looks so cute!

haha. that is too funny. Way to go Aaron! That is a serious challenge!!! That is soooo cute that Finn said Dadda. Cal has been doing that too, but I'm not sure its really related to Dan yet. He just like trying to consonants. Hopefully, he'll mean the real thing soon. :) So cute how our boys are doing all the same things!

The last time I changed that light it involved my rock climbing equipment. 'Nuff said.
