Macie's Garden

We really aren't sure where she got the idea from, but Macie has been wanting to plant a "garden" for a while. It started out by her planting rocks in our flower beds and watering them daily, hoping they would grow:-) We explained that they weren't going to grow and that she would need to plant some seeds, so of course she begged and begged to go buy some seeds and plant them. We took a trip to the Home Depot and this is one of the things she picked to plant.......

I can see it now.....a 300 pound pumpkin growing in our back yard:-)

Tilling up the dirt with Daddy

Planting the seeds

She was MORE than excited!

Let's see what happens come October!

A little water.....

And there you go.....Macie's back yard garden!

**She also chose some Radish seeds and Zinnia seeds...those are planted in our flower beds:-)
Not sure why she wanted the radishes, but there was NO convincing her to put them back!

Master Bedroom Makeover Part 2~Crown Molding

Wow! It's AMAZING how a new coat of paint can make things feel so "fresh"!! The hubby did a WONDERFUL job and I'm totally happy with the color choice!! The room feels SO MUCH BIGGER now! After a fresh coat (or 2) of paint, we decided to add some Crown Molding around the ceiling! We have it in our living room and I LOVE the "effect" it adds, and since we have such high ceilings in our room we decided to add it to the bedroom. Now, if you know the hubby you know that he is has some INCREDIBLE building skills! He did FABULOUS job with the molding! He even had to make his own "corner pieces" to connect the molding since our ceilings aren't completely square....seriously he amazes me with his skills!! It's looking so we (HE) just has to caulk around it and give it another paint job! Pictures of the "final" crown molding project to come!

Power tools and a cute naked baby!!!:-)

There is something seriously *HOT* about a man using power tools:-)

Go Hubby! Go!

Master Bedroom Makeover Part 1~

So we finally decided to give our Master Bedroom a much needed makeover! Well, let me say that "I" decided it needed a makeover and the hubby lovingly said "ok sure, does that mean I have to paint?" Haha!! Boys! I mentioned in an earlier post that we have had the same duvet cover for almost 7 years so we (I) was ready for a change!:-) So let the makeover begin!!!

Catching Up!

Wow! I feel so behind! Things have been NON STOP around here lately it seems! Summer is here and we are so excited! I can't wait to see what fun things the summer holds for the family! I no longer have a "newborn" so I feel like we can get out and do a few more things than we could this time last year....but I now have a very active TODDLER and that just means finding things that are "age appropriate" and fun for both a 1 year old and 3.5 year old......and working around their nap schedules! YES my 3.5 year old still naps....she doesn't have a choice:-) Here are just a few happenings over the last few weeks!

Playing in the hose at Nonnie and Pop Pop's house!

Swimming at Kay Kay's with their cousin Wilder!

Starting Summer School at Bartlett Hills Baptist Church!
