Mike has made frames for me before, so when I found this
print of the Savior {love His eyes in this one}, Mike
took me down to pick out some molding. We just
spray painted it in flat paint and we love how it
turned out! The wall isn't quite finished
but it's a start!

My little girls love to get their nails painted!

This picture is so classic of Aubrey. She will play with
anything! Even the saw dust while her dad's sawing! Love her!

Apparently my hutch makes a perfect place to for Flyn, baby Flyn,
Rapunzel and baby Rapunzel to hang out! She loves Tangled, just
a teensy bit!

Look what happens when I "think" I lock the pantry!
And notice she's taken off her jeans? Her new trick!

Lukey watching the Nascar race with Mike. "Look Daddy!
The M&M car! I see it! The M&M car!" Yeah, the boys
love to watch races.:)

{What's up with blogger lately? I've lost posts and sweet comments...strange!}
I need to make a book before anything else gets lost!:)

Our ward had the Father & Sons camp out this weekend.
The boys were stoked about going camping with
their dad! Lukey kept on
saying, "Boys only!".:) Here they are
in front of Mike's truck all ready to go!

Aubrey getting in & out of the truck...I think she was
a little disappointed to not be going! Poor thing!
We had a good time just us girls at home though! Plenty
of Barbie movies and treats!

Little Miss wanted to go too! She cried for her daddy for a
good 15 minutes after they left! She's a daddy's
girl for sure.

**Just a quick update on Miss Tess. She has a new splint. You can see the top of it in the picture of her. It comes up way past her wrist. I hate it. It's hard not to feel mean when I put it on her! She hates it but is such a good girl to wear it most of the time! She's still wearing her glove - we got a new one this week. She wore the other one right out! We have just a few more months before her surgery.:)**
The kitchen before! Lovely, isn't it?! It's really small.
There's not much we can do about that, but
we did try to improve what we could!

The new granite! So nice and pretty!

I saw the idea of putting bead board on the face of
the cabinets online. We tried it and LOVED the
look! We primed and painted the cabinets with
a white laquer that turned out beautiful! We
picked out some new hardware and the cabinets are
just SO much cuter! I did away with the old
pantry door, which is in an older post!
Plus with the hardwood flooring, sink, faucet {that
I LOVE}, new microwave and
dishwasher, the kitchen is darling!

The kitchen after!

Caleb & Aubrey had a field day last Friday...here they are all ready for it! They are too cute!

This is how the tile is supposed to look! Nice and clean!

This is how the tile looked in the entry and kitchen! Yuck!

Our homemade gates to keep the little guys from getting into
the rooms that Mike was working in! Ha! They both
could climb over, but at least it gave me
a head start to grab them before they made it!
Tess only escaped me once! And fell into the glue!
Oh boy was she not happy about that. She walked
into it, got stuck, got mad, wanted to throw a fit
but couldn't move so she just sat down and
kinda gave up! I couldn't rescue her leggings and
socks! lol!

You can kind of see the wonderful carpet and tile...disgusting!

This is the floor after! I couldn't get a bigger picture! I thought
the laundry room! But no, not quite finished in there!
The entry, no that shows my buffet...and I'm still waiting on
the hardware! The family room! Nope, that room is still waiting
for shutters, as is the kitchen! One day soon {8 weeks} the
shutters will be here and we'll be done with the inside of the house -
for the most part! Ha! I think by the time we move out next
May we MIGHT be done with the house! Improving the house
is the only thing that is keeping me sane though!
But I think these shots really show how pretty this wood is! The
two steps are from the entry into the front room.:)

This is further down from the steps in the front room.
The rug on the right is from
Mike's old shop...I LOVE it. So soft!

Taking up tile STINKS! Oh my, my, my....seriously the hardest thing EVER! My hand cramped up after a minute of hammering and that wasn't the hardest part! Scraping the glue off was torture!
***The bug guy came again and said there was NO activity around the house! Yeah! Good bye creepy scorpions!!
