I have the craft BUG!

The final result!
Obviously this is before paint!

With new floors and new paint, I have caught the craft Bug!!

Be careful you may catch it too!

I found a $30 headboard at Goodwill. With a coat of paint it's perfect!

Who wouldn't want your initials on the wall? I feel like I am 18 again!

And of is great when your eyes are on the Temple

What to do next? Stay tuned to find out!

Busy, Busy Bee's!!!

Our new floors are finally in...and boy are they beautiful!
So long ugly navy blue carpet!!!

I am kind of grateful for that old pipe in our

backyard that decided it needed to break and

flood our house with water!

Look what I got as a result!

Thanks to all our wonderful family and friends that helped out!

We couldn't have done it without you!

Love notes!

Happy Valentine's Day to the one's I LOVE!

Candle lit dinner for the family,
yummy treats for my friends,

and popcorn for the best teachers two kids can have!

Happy Birthday Baby!

Happy Birthday Emily! I can't believe my baby is 9!

My birthday wish for you...

Stay sweet, and beautiful, and always chase after your dreams!

Love always-

Home Project #1...A million to go!

I have always hated the cheap cabinets that are in my house. So, I decided to paint them. I was going to pain them white and do an antique glaze. Someone (I can't remember who!) suggested that I try black, cuz my bedroom furniture is black. It took me awhile to build up enough courage, but I finally painted them. WOW, boy do I love them! Now on to the master bedroom walls, and then the kitchen.
P.S. Sorry the "before" shot is so bad. Someone named either Makenna, Emily, or Ryan got ahold of the camera and deleted the better shot. Oh well, I think you get the idea!

It's Wii Time!

Boy it was Emily's lucky day!!! Today I got a phone call from Dr. MacDonald's office (the girl's orthodontist) telling me that Emily won their summer photo contest and that she won the grand prize. I was so excited for her and felt like a kid on Christmas Eve waiting until I could pick her up from school and tell her. You should have seen her face when I told her (to bad I was so excited I forgot the camera!) she squealed in pure delight. And just what was the grand prize you might be wondering (as if the pictures didn't give that away)? A Nintendo Wii!!!! Yes, that is right we are now the proud owners of this fabulous gaming system. So far we have had a blast bowling, boxing, batting, golfing, and smashing tennis balls. What to play next....? Congratulations Emily!!!

I Love To See The Temple!

We are so excited that the Temple in the Gila Valley is making great progress! Janae grew up in Thatcher and played softball in the fields where the temple now stands. It is a beautiful sight to see a temple going up in this beautiful valley. The kids were excited to see the temple as well, and we are all looking forward to the open house.
