How Do You Remove a Radiator? or, Why There's a Piano in My Kitchen, by Coralee

Joy of joys! Brant found a free player piano on Craigslist that was barely a few miles from our house! He enlisted a nice police office friend with a truck and trailer. He gathered three other strapping young men. They successfully yanked and tugged that humongous piano up and over our snowy sidewalk, yard, and steps. They removed the front door and then the doorjam into the dining room. It barely squeaked through the door. Then. The radiator. None of us could figure a way around this sucker. We can't angle the piano through the door and around it. The radiator is totally in the way. And there's one at the other entrance to the dining room, too. We can not figure out how to get this piano out of the kitchen and into the dining room, where we had intended it to go. Any ideas? I think we'll just have to get rid of it, otherwise. 

So sad!

Sunny :)

I just couldn't stop her from running outside in her pjs and shoveling a little bit. Hey, the sun was out, and it was 40 degrees! What was I supposed to do? :)

Happy Groundhog Day!

What a fun morning! We're sick with yucky colds, but that didn't stop us from enjoying the craziness outside. And Daddy was home all morning with us to play! Yippee!

More block cities . . . big surprise!

haha--I caught her right in the middle of saying "More cars!" She has lately been obsessed with needing even more cars than she already has.

Everyone needs some Annie love

more azaleas--it was so fun to slide the ice tubes off each little twig--Annie thought you should eat them
