Our Latest Happenings

Wow these past couple of weeks have flown by. I don't know if it's spring fever or "nesting" instincts but I have had this itch to get things De-cluttered, cleaned, organized, and improved. Just to give you an idea of what we have been up to. . . .
I was trying to find a crib set that would match Morgan's comforter, because they are going to be sharing a room. I looked and looked and didn't find anything that I really liked or was a close enough match. So I decided I would make my own. I bought the fabric and made the crib comforter and the skirt. It wasn't until I was done that I realized they didn't match at all. The pink and brown were both VERY off. So I made one for Morgan's bed too.

I haven't set the crib up yet so don't have a picture of the whole thing. The bumper and diaper stacker are still a work in progress though.

Then I made some sheets and curtains for David's room (sorry I don't have pictures of that).

I've cleaned out every closet in the house along with the kids toy chests, the laundry room, cupboards etc...

I took out about half of the kids toys that never get played with, they just somehow end up all over the floor, and moved David in with the toys. Now I have a craft/office room.

Jared has been working on a big project in our front yard. He is not near being done but here's what we have so far, It went from this. . . .

To this. . . .

When he is finished getting all the brick up and the dirt in place, then we have to plant grass and flowers, YAY!!

We made me a garden, which I planted on Saturday. My first garden hopefully it will turn out. I planted beans, peas, tomatoes, and peppers. If anyone has some helpful hints I would love to hear them.

We put in a sandbox for the kids. . .
I painted all my kitchen cupboards white, they were all an ugly yellowish off-white, and the trim above the cupboards I painted red.

And I rented a carpet cleaner and cleaned all the carpet in my house and re-arranged the furniture!

And somehow there is still LOTS more I need/want to get done before this baby arrives.

Happy Anniversary to my one and only. 4 Years of bliss, with many more to follow. I couldn't have asked for a better person to spend my life with. I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be than right here, making memories with the one I love!

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
