Latest project

Again... the photos don't do it justice, but this is the latest room I have been working on. I still want to do a window treatment, and possibly some thick crown molding. But, for now I am very happy with it.

The thing I am the most happy about is taking out the old ugly silver dangling light fixture. Wayne let me get the one I wanted, instead of settling for one that was just alright - thank you Wayne!

I don't really know why I am putting this on my blog, other than I am so excited about it, and am having a hard time not looking at it. Especially the light. It is so fun to decorate! Yes... I know formal dining rooms are kind of a waste, but they sure are pretty! We do have game night in there occasionally, and special dinners. I need to figure out other excuses to use it. Any suggestions?

Stuffed Animal Birthday Party

So... the kids were going from house to house this morning, and decided they wanted to have a birthday party for their animals after swimming at Butcher's house.

Izzy, Sophie, Kyra, Mia, Addy

With their favorite pets.

I baked a cake, and let the girls frost and put sprinkles on a piece for their very own stuffed animal. They even got to blow out candles and sing.

Conrad and Will joined in also, even though they didn't bring a pet. Their favorite thing about it was eating the frosting. It was a loud, but fun day.
