painting endevors part one

Seeing as how we have been in our house for 4months I decided it was time to start painting. Here are 2 rooms that are started. Well, the girls room is all done except for the window treaments _i will post those when I am done (if you blow them up- yes I hit the ceiling and yes i fixed it!!! hard to paint when laying on your back on top of a closet!!!)

Guest room. This brought on new appreciation for my painter friends (jacque and Dave!) this was a tedious job that paid off but ...MAN!!! Window treatments to come soon here too- and lamp shade! ha)
Not exciting I know, but felt I was so lsacking on the posts that I needed to do something. I got some great fabric while in mesa and can't wait to get it all up!!! I have a hard tiome doing all that while the kids sit and do nothing so i can do something, so it will come soon enough!

4th of July (a smidge late! what a lame-o)

Realized my site is quite lame then relized on top of that that it doesn't have the 4th on it!! Stayed home because you can see the fireworks from our house....
the cloud coverage that night was too heavy so they waited and waited and waited (you get the idea) to do fireworks, so at 10 we called it a night and went in.
We did do the sparklers, kiddie stuff with grandpa and grandma caldwell. So you can't beat yummy fruit with FAB dip and "friendly" fireworks!

Aprons and ice cream!

At church kassidy goes with the 8-11 year old every other week and learns different things (called activity days for those that know what it is!) Their recent project was to make their own apron all by themselves and then have an ice cream social for the dads. It was very cute. they did a fashion show and then served the men. It was very very very very (get the idea) very hard for me to let her do the entire project herself complet with crooked cutting and sewing. I did let her do it all on her own and it is adorable! She is so proud of herself and we are of her.


She knows how her dad like it! Super huge

My little sewing gal

Look at those cuties I get to have all to myself!
(Now I have to make Abs one because "it's not fair for Kass to have one and not ME!"
