fun things around our house

We have a few new things around the house that I think are pretty cool....

We got a new shelf in our kitchen, finally allowing me to get some things off the teeny-tiny Air Force excuse of a counter.  You can see our happy compost container in the background next to the Kitchen Aid.
We use cloth napkins here in the MacHouse (and so should you)...and here are our new ones.  I know they don't match, but nothing else in our house matches, so why start now?  I think they are beautiful.
Everyone who has a garden needs a recycled tin watering can.
Maddox's McIntyre grandparents saved many toys from Marshall's childhood.  They gave her a few of them when we were down visiting before Easter...and there are even more waiting for the future! She loves this picnic set complete with utensils, and school bus!
These Tupperware blocks were another big SCORE!!
They open up and snap together, which is a really cool feature.
They also make a beautiful necklace.
Maddox is so happy that her Daddy's parents saved all these toys for her.  We were just saying the other day that we think we need to get some more toys for Mdx to play with, it's just that toys are so expensive, so we try to buy them second-hand or at a yard sale.  Luckily Mdx loves books, which don't take up a lot of room, and she's attached to her stuffed animals and "Baby" that Santa brought her.

The last demonstration that we are at last a Mac-family...and my husband is a dork.

Steve wants to do the Apple sticker thing - he's debating how to incorporate the dog though...
