First Fishes & More Eagles

 We went fishing off the dock this weekend with a neighbor.  It only took a few minutes until we caught several big catfish.  It was the first time fishing for the kids.  They were so excited.  Colton, Ellery, and even Delanay all caught some big ones.  Blue Catfish and Channel Catfish, and some Carp ranging in size from about 1 foot long to 3 foot long.  It was surprising. And we saw another bald eagle. Oh and we did more painting.  Almost all the ceilings done downstairs.  And our lake house now sleeps 10.  It's been slow but we are getting there.  I will post some bedroom photos later.

Water Leak Fixed

 Had a plumber come out and take a look at our massive water leak under the bathtub.  If you live around Lake Tawakoni and have a water leak or plumbing issue, call K & K Plumbing.  903-527-3696  They were fast, honest, and affordable.  I highly recommend them. We got some new living room furniture for the place and got some of it moved down and into the house. We made some more progress in the downstairs bedrooms too.

Laundry Day

 We can finally do laundry at the house and once we get it all spruced up, so can you.  We now have a washer and dryer that we can use at the lakehouse.  I wanted to thank both Uncle Tommy and Andrew Schutz for helping us out with this.  You guys are awesome.  Can't wait to have ya'll over to see the place and spend some time there.

Bald Eagles

 The neighbors around here had said that there were lots of bald eagles around the lake.  I didn't really believe them until this weekend.  There was a giant bird shadow trailing across the lawn, I look up and sure enough, a giant bald eagle flying directly over our house.  This isn't my picture.  I wasn't fast enough to grab my phone. Anyways.  This weekend we got the texturing in the downstairs bedrooms finished and some beds set up.  Now the kids don't have to sleep on blow up mattresses and we can have family down to stay the night too. We almost finished priming the living room.  Next up is painting the living room ceiling, priming and painting the downstairs bedroom ceilings. Fun. Fun. Fun.  And we added the new smart locks to the place We went with the Ultraloq.  I will give you feedback on it after we have used it more.  So far I like it, and installation and setup was really simple.
