Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from our cheerleader Winnie!

Before & Afters...

We have finally started hanging things on the walls!  The only room left to paint is the basement bathroom.  Everything is coming together finally.  Here are a couple before & after shots.  I'll post the family room & others as we finish them.
Playroom before & after (note: this room is only clean on the days I vacuum)

Boys Room before & After (yes I did blur my kids' names for their privacy/safety).  They recently moved from toddler beds to twin beds. The room is very crowded with the new beds.  I did ask them if they wanted to sleep in separate rooms but it was denied.  C told me they would sleep together in one twin bed.  Oh well... Better luck next year?

Thank You Parasol Pics...

We decided to send photo cards for our thank you's.  (For those wondering why you haven't received a thank you, it's because they are on order with  You can see how I made the thank you parasol here

I did a photo collage using three of our wedding photos on one side, four photos of the boys on the other side.  I got an excellent deal through vistaprint, ordering 200 thank you photo cards & envelopes for around $50.  Here's our Thank You shots we had to choose from, one may be coming to a mailbox near you...

Busy & My Computer is Down!

Well the social/dance went extremely well.  I'd love to post pics but my computer is down & Jamie's isn't the best... So we all must wait for a better update on the party.

For now we have had a busy week.  We are working on the basement again...  This is the current status:
Will post finished photos when my new power cord arrives from China...  Taking forever.
