Where I have been....

This is a table and chair set that we bought at a garage sale a while back. It was a cream table with pink/peach chairs. I just sanded them down, and repainted them! Voila!
I was considering stripping this toybox, but a little Mr Clean magic white scrub, and it was good as new to me!
This corner is Josh's masterpiece! The corner in this room is a diagonal, so it made it especially hard to do this part! You're amazing, Babe!
So the story behind this idea, is: We have a friend in Princess playgroup that did her little girls room this way. I LOVED it, so I asked Josh to replicate it. What a project! It was a lot of hard work, and quite a few trips to Home Depot! We also painted the room purple. (Thanks to Amy for letting us copy!)
This bed is part of a bunk bed set that was Josh's when he was little. We inherited it, and I made it work for the girls' room. It was incredibly hard to strip it of the old brown on it! Thanks to Kristin for the stuff to make it all happen! ( and the skills!)

Kaley obviously LOVED her new room! She kept asking if it was time to go to bed yet. Note that it is still light outside! She keeps telling me that she will take good care of her new bed and new room.
We have yet to add Bella into the equation. She has been sick, and keeping her in the closet with the humidifier going. I bought some adorable pink bedding for Bella's bed too. So, as soon as I have the entire room completed, I will post pictures!

I have also been working on Thomas' room. I am making him a quilt for his bed. What a project! Needless to say, my vision is far beyond my skills! Josh's Mom is helping me get through it! Pictures to follow when complete. :)

So between painting, room re-arranging, sick kids, and other life happenings, I haven't had much time to blog! I am excited for this weekend though! I've got a stellar line-up of fun! Quilting, BYU Football, Twilight, and Primary! Should be fun! I am also working on a couple surprises for Kaley's birthday in a couple weeks!

Kaley's first Field Trip!

Today was Kaley's first field trip! I went along as a helper. So it was my first field trip as a Mom! Our car had all the girls in it. There's Kaley, Kamryn and Kayla. We went over to the park by the library and played in the leaves. Kaley had a blast! It was so fun to see her interact with her friends! I can tell how much she loves preschool!

Jumping in the leaves!

I love leaf-throwing pictures!

The kids had to pretend to be squirrels and find the scattered peanuts.

All lined up and ready to go!

More to come...

We have been working like crazy on projects at our house! I will post pictures as soon as I feel the finished product is worthy of it! :) For now, here are a few pictures of the munchkins that make every project take ten times longer than expected!

Happy Halloween!

Max and Isaac

Josh's co-worker told us that a guy in his neighborhood gives out a box of a dozen Krispie Kreme donuts to every kid that trick-or-treats at his house. We took a little drive to check it out! Yes! There was a line! Both of my kids got a dozen donuts! Wow! We were amazed at the generosity of some people! Josh says when he is that rich, he will pass out Krispie Kreme donuts at Halloween! You are all welcome to swing by! :)
Thomas' spot, once he got tired, was perched on top of the stroller. (this was about 3 houses down from ours.)
