Everybody is doing it

I have been seeing all kinds of cameo's flooding the blogger world, they looked so simple i just had to give it a try.....
first i needed some supplies.. i borrowed some construction paper from the kiddo's craft table
then i needed to get a profile picture of the boys... this proved to be more difficult than expected
i took the best pictures and print out the picture. i cut out the face part of the printed picture and the construction paper at the same time.

i glued the white paper onto the black paper and i put them in some frames i had in the play room they may not be permanent but i like them for now

can you tell which child is which?.... i can guess i should have labeled them but i never got around to it. a mother will always know right....?

please excuse the awesome mess that is our play room... and the white walls... i really need to find a color to put on them!

that's all i have for now....

spring has sprung

there is so much change happening in my house recently, it is had to describe it all. My spring garden has been planted, my daffodils are coming up, life is returning to my yard and i am thankful! everyone is in mostly good health. My big one was up all night with an fever and ear infection and my little one had a sinus infection. a big shout out to the dr. that looked at Riley during Connor's appointment and was able to prescribe him meds to get better! i really don't like medicating my kids but i felt they needed something!

.... what have i been up to.. well let me give you some sneak peeks....
..........I am working on painting the living room walls and trim, the same color will go up the steps and into the Hall upstairs... not sure if i like it yet... ..........the garden has expanded and is tilled (by hand!!!!) and onions and lettuce and cauliflower, strawberries and potatoes are all planted. waiting to plant the tomatoes and peppers. I have plans for so many things this summer like canning and freezing all kinds of veggies for the winter...
............light fixture

i have such big plans for this light i received from someone off of freecycle.org i am going to copy Pottery Barn like the best best of them. more info to follow

.......this.......ohhh yeah we are getting our house painted!!!!!! really looking forward to this!!!
