End of an era

Demolition of the Ogden Federal Elevator 

The grain terminal, one of the earliest concrete structures of its kind built in the Prairies, A nearly century-old building praised overseas as a model of innovative industrial architecture.






And just like that it was over and gone forever.

The boys fell asleep in the van so I just drove around since I had to get Lil O in 30min and stumble upon these homes....beautiful....HUGE...I would not want to be the one to clean them 10min from my home.

Big house

Yeah sometimes I think oh it would be nice to live in something like that...then reality hits..... don't get me wrong I love my home now.

May the Force be with you.....

The Boys are excited I bought these yesterday, Lil O was Happy with his Star Wars ship sandwhich and they keep asking when I will make the cookies.....well I could of today but daddy dropped the eggs.  Guess what we are having for breakfast on the weekend...Star Wars Pancakes.

another tooth gone

Lil O lost another tooth while at school and apparently swallowed it. Guess he was in tears thinking he was going to choke on it and to top it off Tooth fairy would not come because the tooth was in his belly, I said she will still come tooth fairy knows these things happen. The School gave him a plastic tooth holder to help the tooth fairy
