Kindergarten Mommy make over 2012

In May for Mothers day The kindergarten class had a Mommy Makeover. I was so excited to go get made over by my little guy. I took eye shadow and nail polish and hair brushes and clips and hair ties. He combed through my hair, but that is about all he wanted to do. He put some make up on me, but not a ton. But he LOVED painting my nails! He put 5-7 colors on. They were very colorful. It was a great day for both of us, memories to cherish.

Snuggly Boys

One day when Brad had already been up and out of bed I had a visit from these 2 in the morning. I snuggled them until I had to get up and go to the bathroom. Then I came back to find them both making themselves comfortable. OH, they are so Cute! I love these boys. These are times I want to remember.

A much needed update

It's not that we haven't had anything going on. It's that we have had so much going on and I am too busy to write anything. I also lost the cable to my camera, I wanted to wait to do any posts until I found my cable. That hasn't happened yet. So, you get the boring no picture version.

We had an awesome spring break. I tried to keep the kids busy with an activity everyday and I wore myself out. We went to the livestock show at the Rodeo and we went rollerskating on $2 Tuesday. We went bowling and to chick fil a. And the weekend of Spring break we went to Austin to see my Aunt and Uncle and some cousins. It was a great fun trip and we all enjoyed it.

I was lucky enough to go to Utah the end of March-beginning of April to see my new nephew Luke. (this is were the pictures would come in handy) he is adorable and I am so glad I got to go see him and hopefully help his parents for a few days.  I also got to see my brother and sister in law and my other nephews. It was a great trip. Brad stayed here to hold down the fort and did an amazing job as usual.

Mitchell man turned 6 years old. (again the camera would be handy) He wanted to go to a hibachi grill with just mom and dad. So we got a sitter and took him. He had a great time, and we enjoyed spending time with him. He loved the food and he loves watching them cook it right in front of you. He got a movie and remote controlled airplane that doesn't fly, but goes forward and backward.  I'm sure there were others, but I don't recall them off the top of my head.

Gracie turned 11. I can't believe she is getting so old. She wanted to go somewhere with just mom and dad anywhere she could have lobster meat. We went to an Italian restaurant and she had some lobster ravioli and she loved it. She had a party with 8-10 of her closest friends. She had a great time, they played and watched movies and did their nails. They had a late night until 10:30 because I was not game to do a sleep over.

There are many more updates, but that is good for now.

Refinished Nightstands

After finishing my headboard we needed nightstands to match. I have been hunting for about 6 months, but to no avail. So I decided to find some to re finish. We found these on Craiglist and I stripped them and sanded them and painted them. above is what they looked like when I got them.
After they had been stripped and sanded. Before I painted them.
Painted, with new hardware and ready to move inside. It was a fun little project. I learned a few new things, and I think they turned out great.
