Another Fun Week

Well we are off to another great start to a fun weekend/week. I worked Wed, Thurs and Fri last week to prepare for opening weekend at SDSU and then Saturday morning we took off for the Cities again for another great week with Chris and Jennifer. Jon is helping them this week again to put together their kitchen and while we are here we will partake in the Minnesota State Fair, how exciting none of us have ever attended!

My blog will be put on hold this week but will post lots of pictures when we return. Hope everyone has a great week!

Making Meat

Making Meat (as Trevor would call it) is what him and Jon had been doing the past couple of nights. Since hunting season is right around the corner Jon thought it was time to clean out the freezer and to make some jerky, deer sticks, summer sausage and ground hamburger. I went to Hy-Vee and bought 10 pounds of burger and he is mixing 10 pounds of game burger in so we will have 20 pounds of half and half burger. If you ask me it is time or chili, soups and casserole's.

Over the years Jon has gotten a grinder and vac sealer for Christmas and man did he put those items to use. The grinder also was used to make the deer sticks and summer sausage by putting the meat into casings so he could cook them in the oven.

Here is a couple pictures of the boys working hard.

Alright I am going to prove those of you wrong who said that Carter does not look anything like Trevor did when he was little!!

Can you guess who is who?? Both pictures where taken at the same time (1 week old before doctor's appointment) in the same outfit. When Jon and I look at these 2 photos we just laugh because it is even hard for us and it just amazing us how much they DO look alike!!

Carter's Room

Since Carter has been born a lot has been going on and I forgot to post pictures of his finished room. I really like how it turned out and it is working out great!!
This was the room before we moved in, my how pretty!

Then I painted it and made it our office.

Then the transformation began to make it Carter's room.

The finished result!!

My favorite is the crisp white wainscotting that we added to the room to match the furniture. Overall we are very happy with the finished product!!

A funny for the day

So in being up in the Cities for a week and making many trips to Home Depot to get stuff for the remodel Trevor just made our day with a funny moment. Yesterday Jen and I went with both boys to get a list of things and Trevor was getting out of the car and said "I like going to the Homo Depoto" we both could do nothing but you gotta love them!

On a mini vacation

Well today I am writing from Minneapolis where I sit in the hotel room while the boys take a nap (well Trevor anyway). We have been here since Thursday and will leave sometime later this week. We came up here to help Chris and Jennifer on their house (actually just Jon) while the boys and I do more fun things then one can blink an eye at with Jennifer. I did not bring my downloading device for pictures so you will have to wait until we get home but man has our schedule been full. Some of the things we have done are attending a Twins game, taking Trevor to the zoo, going to the Minneapolis Children's Museum, indoor playground and hopefully tomorrow the Mall of America.

It has been a great time up here and we will be sad when our little vacation is over. Tonight we are going to Jon's cousin's house (Chad and Kristina) for dinner and are also excited to see their 2 kids. Trevor has also loved every moment of swimming in the hotel pool (yesterday it was 3 hours straight). Vacation's are fun but man they sure ware you out!!

My Boys

As most of you already know we have welcomed another little boy into the world on July 22nd and his name is Carter Jonathon Healy. Things over the past 3 weeks have been crazy and now it is time to get back into the swing of things and update my blog (hopefully daily). Here are some recent pictures of the boys and Carter taking a bath, he loves his baths!!! Trevor would scream bloody murder but this little guy does nothing but just sits there!

Thanks for visiting Healy Happenings and come back soon!
