what I have been doing...

I have been very busy painting rooms in my house. I am "updating" it. It has been a project, let me tell you. my room was by far the hardest and longest than any others. it took me 2 days just to do the stripe wall. then it took me 2 more days to paint the rest of my room. but I am pleased with how it turned out and it is by far way better than plain white walls :)

the striped wall. ( I still have to get a headboard, I havn't found one I like yet and paint my other nightstand)

I painted all the other walls this light tan color but up on the shelf I painted it brown. no decorations yet, I have to buy new ones. :)

the bathroom this picture you really cant tell what color the blue wall is, but its blue/green. the boys love it!

just another shot of the bathroom. the other walls are a really light tan.

now for my next projects....include: my kitchen, front room, and the downstairs family room. so I will be one busy bod. but it will be fun!!

Easter 2009 (a little late)

so I am really late getting these pics up, but it has been so busy around here. Easter morning was a little crazy at our house, trying to do our easter egg hunt to find the kids' baskets, to trying to get to church on time because it was my nephew's mission farewell. then after that we had the luncheon followed by two easter egg hunts. one on Josh's side and then my mom did one. so it was a very busy day! but I havn't slowed down even long enough to post the pics.

starting the hunt for their baskets...I made them go on a little scavenger hunt and gave clues as to where their baskets were hidden.

they found their baskets!!! yeah!! oh the excitement

brax showing off some of his goodies.

porter doing the same.

bryn's 2 favorite things in her basket.

I have more pics to post of easter egg hunts, but my mom has them on her camera so I have to get them from her. and of course since it was such a crazed fiasco on easter morning I didnt even get pics of the kids in their easter I will get one and post it.

eAstEr EgG cOLoRiNg...

so today we went up to my sis-in-law Tamara's house for the annual easter egg coloring. the kids had so much fun. but of course just because I took my camera with me, the stupid thing decides to run out of batteries. but hey, at least I got one picture of each of the kids. so I will have to get more batteries put in and then take them of all their finished eggs.
