Our Little Home Improvement Project!

Our table wasn't painted very well, so all the white paint peeled off, and what was left below it was a very ugly color of yellow! It was like pee color! So we finally decided to repaint it this weekend! We liked the idea of a yellow table, but a softer yellow! So Jeff sanded it down pretty good and then we went and bought some paint and got to work!

You can see the tabletop leaning against the wall! Thats after Jeff sanded down the dark yellow! You can still the dark yellow in some places! You might have to make the picture larger! It was a bad color!
Here is the finished table! We decided to keep the chairs white!
After we painted the table, we had most of the paint left! (The table didn't take very much paint!) So we thought, what the heck! Lets paint a wall in our living room with the extra paint! So, we did! Here's the before shot...
Here's Jeff painting the wall! He used the roller and then I used a paintbrush for the edges!
And here is the finished project! We really like it! It adds a lot to our little apartment, and makes it look sunny and bright! We think that it was a good decision!

What does everyone else think?

My Henna Tattoo!

Today we went to the Farmer's Market and there was a lady there doing henna tattoos! I decided to get one just for the fun of it! They're only supposed to last like 2 weeks! So I thought it would be fun! If you can't tell, it on the under side of my arm right above the wrist!

The New Kitten!

While we were at my parents' house this weekend, we celebrated my mom's birthday since she wasn't here during it! Her birthday is July 4th! We went to the pet store just to look at the animals there and we noticed that they had kittens there for only $9.00! I wanted to get one for my mom but we decided not to! I ended up telling my sister about it when we got home and she didn't even give it a second thought! She went and got one! They named him Alex! Now my mom has a kitten, and he is only 3 weeks old! My kids LOVED playing with him! They just could not get enough!

Swimming, FINALLY!!!

Last weekend we went up to visit my parents' and they have their own swimming pool! But since they have been gone all summer the algae or whatever it is has taken over! The pool was so green (as you can tell in the pictures) and very gross to touch the bottom! but I hadn't been swimming at all this summer because of my stupid broken leg, so I was determined to get in the water! I even got my whole family to get in with me! Matthew had the most fun I think! He LOVED it! Except I forgot my swimsuit at home so I had to borrow one of my mom's old ones! I don't think I've worn a one peice swimsuit since......Gosh, I don't even remember! It took a little getting used to! :) In the first picture is a nice shot at my broken leg! Its the one out of the water (the right leg)!

Sprinkler Time!

We went up to my parents' house last weekend to celebrate my Mom and Dad coming home from Kentucky for the summer! While we were there it was soooo hot so we pulled out the sprinklers! Matthew had a lot of fun jumping in the water and getting a big mouthful and spitting out! Kaity on the other hand, she didn't like not being able to control the water and she didn't like getting splashed, so she prefered to stay up on the deck!
I know the grass is in the way here, but I actually like the picture! The more I look at it the more I like it! So I decided to put it on here!

Kaity's Crazy Positions!

If you remember awhile ago, I did a post on all the crazy positions that Kaity puts herself in throughout the day! Well, I have more! The positions she gets in just really makes me laugh! She is such a goofball!

In this one, she layed down her planket and everything all by herself! Cute, right?
This is how she fell asllep the other night! She must of been up playing and then just fell asleep! I think it is adorable!

New Blog!

I'm thinking of making a blog just for hair! With instructions on how to do it and everything! What do you guys think? Does anybody have any good names for what I should call that blog?

Headband Holder!

I really like this one! All you do is make the 5 ponies in the fron and then you place your headband (or I used ribbon) right behind those ponies, while keeping the 5 front ponies above the ribbon! Then you make 6 ponies behind the headband and take half of each top pony to put in one of the back ponies! Does that make sense? I hope it does! Hope you enjoy!

Swinging Kaity!

Kaity thought about doing this all by herself! She always thinking of fun new things to do! I thought it was cute enough to make its way onto my blog! :) Hope you like it!

Matthew Playing Baseball!

Matthew amazes me sometimes with the things that he is able to do! Lately he has been playing 'baseball'! He likes to hit a ball with a bat and he is very good at it! He can hit it almost everytime! Hope you enjoy the video!

Fancy Bun!

Here's a new hairdo that I found! I think it looks pretty fancy! Here is what it looks like in the beginning! Then you turn it inside out and fold it back and then it looks like...

this! After you fold it back against the head then you tuck the ends in and secure it with either butterfly clips or bobby-pins!

What do you think?

Kaity's Tip-Toeing!

I had to throw this in! What she is doing is trying to tip-toe! I would cover up my face and she would try to "sneak" up on me and scare me! I just thought that it was adorable!

Flying Kaity!

Matthew and Kaity love being thrown onto the couch! They think it is sooo much fun! So they talked Jeff into doing this with them and I thought I would get the camera out and test the stabilizer on the camera and see if they turn out blurry at all! The camera did pretty good! Look how high Kaity goes! Its crazy! I was a little scared while they were doing it, but everyone turned out ok! :) She LOVED it!

I didn't get any good shots of Matthew doing it! Thats why all the pictures are of Kaity!

Bath Time!

I just thought that this was super cute! They got really muddy playing outside so they jumped in the bath! Look at how high Kaity can lift her leg while sitting! It looks pretty weird with all the bubbles all around her!

Their favorite thing to do with bubbles is to get a big sccop of them and blow them everywhere!
I love Kaity's face!

Random Cute Shots!

Here are just some cute pictures that I took today! I was taking some pictures of Kaity 's hair after I fixed it and I just kept taking some! They were being really cute! Kaity was having such a fun time with herself in the mirror today!

In this picture Kaity was pretending to go for a horse ride on the horses that she is holding! She's a goofball!
Here's my handsome little boy!
I couldn't get both of them to look at me and smile at the same time! So I had to bribe them with a cookie if I got a good shot of them! So both of their smiles or forced, but they still got their cookie!

Criss-Cross Braids!

I got this idea for the braids to criss-cross in the middle of the head from one of the hair blogs that I follow, but I changed it a LOT! I really like this and I'm very excited to fix it tomorrow with it being very curly! Hope you enjoy!

I even curled the ends with my curling iron! I accidently got too close to the elastics with the curling iron and broke them! So I had to rewrap them and then recurl them again! I'll be more careful next time!

Double Headband!

Here's a new hairdo that I like a lot! It really kept the hair out of her face! If the hair is long enough to put in an elastic, then you can do this! Super easy!
Here's the best part of the hairdo! When you take it, this is what it looks like! I loved it! It looked like I crimped her hair! I got a lot of compliments on it the next day!
