Finished chair and fun things kids say

Savanah has been saying the funniest things lately!


Savanah: "Our family is going to be a double's fact soon mom."
Mom: "Oh, what is that?"
Savanah: "Three and three equals six. Three boys and three girls!"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This morning she brought her homework in to me and said "This is tricky mom. These congruent figures tried to trick me. " I just looked at her like what are you talking about. Then she pointed to the two figures and said " See, one is upright and one is sideways, but they are still congruent. I knew it was tricky!"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the finished chair!
Old chair



New Chair



and just because.......

Here is Kenny with her BFF, the Cat!

What a smart little girl you have! I love the chair! You guys just know how to make a house a home. I am just not that good at all that stuff. I wish I had that talent. Your stuff is so cute!

I believe I'm gonna have to look up congruent in the dictionary. :) How old is she!!! Cute hair and she looks beautiful in yellow.
You crack me up with all your refurbishings. I LOVE it!!! Now only if you could send a few my way. Hey!!! You should seriously start doing that. I bet people would love to buy your goodies!

I am willing to admit, I am NOT smarter then a 5th grader... or kindergartner or 1st grader or 2nd grader.... I Love the new chair! I am so excited to move into a house so my unfinished chairs can get finished... they are mostly sanded down (did that in the kitchen this summer!) Just don't want to stain/paint them in there too!! Can't be too healthy for the muffin in the oven or Kevin!!! How are you feeling? What day are you do? You are getting close!!

Great job (again) on the chair. I wish I was half as creative as you are!

You should hold a 'bring your junk and make it beautiful'class. I'm sure it would be a turn out! You are amazing!

The Calder Crowd said...

I agree 100% with the "Bunnell's" comment...you must move to Boise now! Oh wait...you are!!:) I was reading everything your mom did while she was there and I am so impressed...Can you ask her when she plans to come stay with me?!! I am excited for you to have this baby, it will be fun to see him. The chair looks great, as does everything you do! I miss you so much and hopefully we can see eachother every single day when you finally get moved over!

Lindsey said...

Savanah is getting sooo big!! Her hair is way cute too :) Did you cut her hair or is it just the really tight curls???

C.B. said...

What a smart kid. Your chair turned out awesome. I wish you could makeover my kitchen table and chairs, they are not cute at all, they need the thrift goddess!

Tiffany said...

I'm loving the math talk. Oh there is nothing that brings more joy to my heart than discovering congruent triangles.
The chair is super cute.

DEBI said...

Bonnie you have such a cute family. I love seen the changes you make to old furniture. Love ya, Aunt Debi

Jenn and Tyler said...

LOVE the chair! And I dread the day my child talks to me about congruent...?@!#X ????? Why didn't I pay more attention?!

Hans, Shell, Gabe, Hiett and Sunny Sunflower said...

Good grief! I swear I didn't hear of a congruent anything until I was like in 8th grade in Geometry! Yikes. How on earth are you feeling? Other than pregnant?

Katie Lee said...

Savannah cracks me up. She is soooo smart! I am so excited to see your cute, soon to be 'doubles fact' little family. Only 5 more days! Hooray!

STRATTON FAMILY said...
