Gymnastics, Hair-do's, Horses & Cotton Mouths!

Figured it was time to start engaging in the obligatory overcommitting, crazy expensive, schedule stuffing extra curricular activities for Jada. We decided on gymnastics.

Jada on the uneven bars.

Jada on soon to be Olympic event "wall climb"

To get her ready for possible "American Gladiator" role, here we have the "Climb the Net and Jump into massive vat of balls"

Here's Jada doing her Rings routine. She's only a couple years from being eligible for the Chinese Olympic Team. (Come on! You know you were thinking it too! Could not resist.....)

Jada riding Mark Stermer's horsie. She loved it.

The Sterminator walking Jada. Dude is Cuntry...

Brandi found some neat things that you wet Jada's hair, put these curly hair maker things while its wet, let her sleep with them in and in the morning she has a perm.

Here's Jada with her new do for school pictures at Cross Point Baptist Church's Mother's Day Out Program.

While weed eating near the shop, came across this monster!

Tried chopping him up with the weed eater, but that skin is tougher than you think.

Had to settle for the Texas Toothpick (3 foot 2 by 4) to the head of the serpent.

Painting and Hanging Doors and Trim

Just a day or two before the storm hit, I got my sheetrock floated and textured. Then I sprayed the whole interior house with primer. After 30 minutes of spraying, I noticed a constant smell and funny taste. Went outside to get a drink and found the white film in my hair and all in my nose. So, put together this outfit to keep me clean.

Painting ceiling in bathroom. BTW: Anyone know how to get Latex based paint off of a garden tub? OOPS...

This shot is from the stairs leading up to Living Area upstairs. That's the Living Room then the hall to the bedrooms (right and left) and bathrooms (straight ahead).

This is the Living Room shot from the Kitchen.

Setting up trim and doors for painting.

Doors after painting in garage. Now gotta repaint garage due to a little overspray. Should have painted garage and doors and trim same color!

Most paint done. This is Master BR going out to deck. The pond is just off the deck to the right.

This shot taken from Jada's room. She's standing in the Kitchen/Living room.

This is Jada's room again. That's her closet.

Standing in kitchen looking into Jada's room.

Master BR and that door goes into our bathroom.

This is from between bedroom doors pointing to stairway. Pantry door on left, closet door to right and computer hutch or whatever to far right.
