Home Sweet Home, Part 4

H's room.

Home Sweet Home, Part 3

Pictures include the kids bathroom, E's room, Master Bedroom, Master Bathroom and my favorite room of the house....the Laundry/Sewing Room. My Laundry room is on the 2nd floor and connects to the Master Bedroom closet, which is genious on my part because my laundry never goes anywhere. It is so convenient. This might be the aspect of our house I miss the most. Room for 7 seperate laundry baskets for sorting. Ahhhhh...and i have a TV up in the corner that you can't see. I doubt that any future laundry arrangements I have in the future will be so comfortable. Unless we win the laundry and I can have a full time laundry person. That weirds me out, though. I would probably still just do it myself.

Party Animals!

Today was the kids Valentine's parties at preschool. They both had a great time, and took hard 2 hour naps afterwards. And so did I. I felt so loved in E's class today. Sadly, not many parents could make it to the party. I am sure that with the weather from the last few weeks, people didn't feel like they could take time off work, but E's class was very short on extra help. My lap was full the whole time. One little boy cracked me up, he came up and said, "I don't read very well." He is 2!

A very nice mom took H and I's picture, and I took one of her and her daughter. E has decided to photobomb each and every picture he is in, so he is making a silly face or "flashing a gang sign." He reminds me so much of Leslie these days. Blonde hair, full lips, bright blue eyes and goofy pictures. ;)

Home Sweet Home, Part 2

These pictures are of our entryway, half-bath, sitting room and stairway leading upstairs, and basement. The treadmill sitting in the basement is totally tacky, but is there a good place to put a treadmill unless you have a home gym? Nope. When the delivery guy dropped it off, he said "I will probably be back in 6 months to haul this thing off. That is what usually happens." I can proudly say that Matt and I put at least 25 miles a week in on it, and usually more. I am really ready to run outside though. Bring on Spring!

Home Sweet Home

So we are putting our house on the market to see what happens. The pictures are a bit of an illusion, because we only cleaned one room at a time, and totally hid stuff in cabinets, but we did get some good pictures. With a 5 year old and a 3 year old it is hard to keep everything looking good, but as is life. Staying home and cooking/eating 90% of our meals here means that our kitchen is an neverending mess!

These pictures are of our main room, which includes kitchen, dining area and sitting room. The red room functions as our office and book/craft room for the kids. There is a whole wall I couldn't show you because we have a 6 foot tall bookshelf and I have a book "problem." Going to edit/pack up this week and get a better picture later. Maybe....

Introducing the crew...

If you are reading this, you probably already know my family. But just in case...
H is my darling 5 year old girl. E is my adorable and everlasting 3 year old boy. Matt is the hubby. Smart, handsome, witty and he knows this! A force to be reckoned with, but I can hold my own. I am not nearly as nice as everyone thinks I am. ;)

Recent Projects

This is a quilt for our new cousin, born in Feb.
Pillows made from old neckties.

Valentine's Day

H is geeked out about Valentine's Day. She loves all the crafts, anything red or pink, and so looking forward to her party at school. It is the first thing she talks about when she wakes up in the morning! E says, "Im not giving any Valentines and I am keeping all the candy." H tried to explain that Valentine's Day was about "giving" not "keeping" but E didn't care. I told Matt about it after work, and he said that was what Christmas was about anyways. Hmmm...I guess the apple...you know the rest.

Here was our afternoon Valentine's Day craft. Recycling broken crayons. Bake at 250, let cool. Super easy and took a while. H was good at peeling the paper off, and E was GREAT at breaking crayons into smaller chunks and a couple of other household items, too. Happy, happy kids.
