Picture Post!

We all love pictures, don't we? I know I do!  I thought I'd share pictures with you all of some of the things going on with us lately :)

First, here are some shots from when Neal and I were back home in Virginia to meet the lovely Miss Kinslee.

Beautiful girl!
I am in LOVE with this sweet picture of Kinslee and her Uncle Neal :)

I wanted to get a shot of her onesie.. "Pinch Me, I'm Cute"
Napping with Uncle Neal. Love. Love. Love.
Sleeping with Aunt Annie.
WIDE awake. It was PROBABLY time to eat. Haha.
Last weekend we went out to Port Gamble...slightly northeast of us. They had a festival called "Old Mill Days." It's an old mill town so they have this festival every year...there are lumberjacks and lumberjack events EVERYWHERE. Pretty cool, though!

The next several photos are all examples of what we saw being made with ONLY chainsaws. Crazy!
And one of us, of course :)
 Last, but certainly not least, here's a shot of our new project! AKA..dresser.  We found this baby for $40.  We'll be making some adjustments to suit our needs and before we know it (hopefully) it will be our new TV stand! Stay tuned for updates on this guy!

Hope you enjoyed our little update.  Now that we're not traveling AND we're not sick you'll be getting more updates on life in Washington :)

Catching Up

Hi again! Sorry we've been MIA for a while. We headed back to Virginia in mid-September to meet the most precious addition to the Hogge and Sigmon families!

We were lucky enough to go back to Virginia the week after Kinslee was born. Neal stayed Saturday through Tuesday and I stayed an entire week (thanks to being unemployed I could do that). I loved helping Lauren and Mike as much as possible and of course we both loved loving on our brand new niece!

I was sick alllllll last week and am just now really beginning to feel better. Praise Jesus!

This past weekend we made it out to Port Gamble...slightly north of us...for Old Mill Days. It's a local festival focused on lumberjacks. It was near seeing all the things they could carve with just a chainsaw! Neal and I also found an old dresser that were turning into a TV stand. We scored it for only $40 bucks. YES!

I'll be posting pictures soon of our trip to Virginia as well as Old Mill Days and our new dresser AKA project. Can't wait to share!
