Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I woke up to wonderful goodies
from my three little men!

Beautiful Roses and a Balloon from Scott

I treated Austin to a heart shaped biscuit from 
Chick-fil-A this morning for breakfast

Jackson keeps asking if he can play with my balloon...
I'm happy to share with my littlest Valentine.

Sweet cards for my boys...

My beautiful hot pink roses!!

And a few days ago...I got a  very special delivery...

I was so excited!!!

It's a girly little home for my new camera!!!

Say "Hello" to Missy in Mint

It's awesome!! It has a bunch of little padded dividers that
I can put in there however I want them!  
My new little camera has a new little home and
it's big enough to hold my iPad and lenses and all kinds
of stuff.  My wallet even has a little spot in there...


The little men have their Valentine buckets full of goodies...

Ready and waiting until after school...

Austin has a new tuxedo t-shirt and the
regular gift on an iTunes card...
some M & M's, gum and Pac-Man band-aids.

Jackson has a new John Deere t-shirt that came 
with a new tractor toy,
pretzel Flipz, bathtub toys and a new
Thomas the Tank Engine Spin toothbrush and toothpaste...
(Santa usually always brings us new tooth brushes as well
as the Easter least they are responsible....
give the kids candy and then a way to avoid the cavities...)

We had a nice relaxing evening at home...
Scott grilled us some yummy steaks and then he and I
enjoyed a movie after the kids went to bed.

Perfect all around....

Look Out Kindergarten...

Here Comes 

Last night we took Jackson
to Kindergarten Registration...
sniff, sniff...

He looks so big sitting there at the table...
Isaac (Jackson's 2nd cousin) doesn't look very thrilled to
be there...hee hee...

Jackson was also excited to see Carolyn.
She is our back door neighbor.
She and Jackson are about 3 weeks apart in age
and have grown up together...
now they are getting ready
to start Kindergarten!!

The kids had a lot of fun and we are looking forward
to a great year in Kindergarten!!!

One More Painting Project...DONE!

Let me tell you...
Scott has been a painting machine lately!

He's the best!

When we built our house 10 years ago,
I had the kitchen painted a sage green 
and have been really happy with it.
It was just showing it's age and I was
ready for a change.

Scott took everything off the walls and patched
all of the holes...

We have a clock that Scott bought me for my birthday
one year that hangs in between the windows...
we were all lost when we took the clock down!

Looking back towards the kitchen...
say goodbye to Sage Green!

And say "Hello" to Sherwin Williams
Nomadic Desert!

"Mom....I'm busy helping Dad...
I don't have time for a picture"

Ahhhh....nice clean new paint....

I am loving it already.

While he was patching walls and such, Scott
decided to move the phone jack that our electrician
plopped right on top of the edge of the counter know,
where you couldn't hang a phone to hide the jack...
it just sat out there...lookin' ugly!
So, Scott moved it under the desk and
everything was hunky dory until he
realized that the only phone that worked in the house was
the one plugged directly into that line...
but a little climb up in the attic
and an afternoon of talking to him on cell phones 
from the kitchen to the attic and feeding a few wires
through the wall...
we are back in business!
I love that my husband is so handy and can figure
out how to fix just about anything.
Saves more room in the budget for shoes when
I'm not having to always call a repair man!

Moving on around and looking good!
I can't wait to start putting some of 
my things back on the walls and I am going to start 
looking for some new window treatments.

After painting all day,
we cleaned up and went to see my
niece's basketball team play in the
area tournament....
They WON!!!

Way to go Lady Red Devils!

So, three room painted lately...
now it's time to start looking for
window treatments and new accessories.
This may take a while...
we also have a couple of furniture
pieces that I would like to paint
for the Kitchen...

Always something going on....
What's going on with you?
