Good Friend

I love when my kids have good friends!  Reading together on the couch, so cute!

Projects, projects, and more projects!

 I found this awesome-ness at the goodwill...SCORE!!! 
 I painted it grey and antiqued it...the pic doesn't do it justice.  The color is so much better in person!  Come on over and see for yourself!
 Then I took this entertainment center...that I have hated for a while, and painted it black, and now I LOVE it.
 I also separated it and now I have  bookshelves in my piano room, and a nice tv case upstairs.
 Speaking of getting it upstairs...yep, my awesome friend and I did it by ourselves.  You have to get creative when your husband it out of town and you are as impatient as me.

 Here is project number one million this week...primary blocks for the temple trip this weekend.
 Each child is going home with a picture of the Temple.
 And this is my OCD-ness coming out in my 3 year old.  Sorry Bailey, I have cursed you for life!
And last, but definitely not least, is this cute Christmas card holder.  Isn't it fun!  This is my November craft for my craft night I started.  It looks very cute in my kitchen!

Why did I wait so long?!?!?

My knife block has been an eye-sore on my counter for a while.  The problem was, I use it about 500 times a day...why didn't I think to paint it sooner?!?!?  Now I love it!  Thanks pinterest!

Thanks Kelli for this picture of Reilynn.  She was so happy to inhale her ice cream...she was diving in nose first...I was starting to worry about frost-bite. :)

The Tickle Dragon

Addison went over to a friend's house the other day.  Her dad came home from work and played "tickle dragon" with his girls and Addison. 
Rules of the game: 
-dad sits in the middle of the room
-children circle dad, trying not to get caught, but really wanting to get caught
-dad tickles children when they get caught
-if a blanket is placed over dad's head, he is not allowed to tickle until said blanket is removed

Addison thought this was the best game since Twister!  She could hardly wait the couple of days until Mark got home to teach him...
Needless to say, it was even more fun with her own dad!

Just a side-note, Addison asked me the other day, "How come mom's can yell so loud?"  Mom of the year award....again!  I am on a roll!

You know it is fall in TX when...

It cools off to 80 and everyone pulls out their pants!
We had a gorgeous Saturday!!!   
 It was perfect for soccer,
 more soccer,
 and flag football games.
 I love seeing my kiddos engaged in positive physical activities!  They are wearing themselves out, gaining skills they will use for the rest of their lives, and having so much fun doing it!
Parker ran the ball in for a 2-point conversion (did I say that right), I'm still learning football.  It is such a complicated sport to me!  Parker is loving it!
