Kate went to homecoming tonight. This had to be one of the busiest days ever, but so worth it in the end!! She was GORGEOUS!! Sure cleans up good coming off the soccer field just a couple hours before these pics.
Kate and Jaq...definitely BFFs!!
Getting the WOW going on!!
You have no idea how many pics I took and got just one of
So today was first day of Preschool. She was really excited until I woke her up at 7:45am, Addy is a sleeper and normally wakes around 10-10:30am. Addy and Aydann are in the same class together and were pretty jacked to see each other. I laugh cause the two of them are such characters...I called it the "Aydann and Addy Show." I am sure there will be some good laughs.
Can you tell that she is not a morning person! She was so ticked at me for taking her picture. She told me she didn't want to go to school, she wanted to go back to bed!!
So here is the house with everything done, just not moved in yet. We are now moved in as of August 20th, but still working on going through everything and putting things where they belong. It is alot of work. Most of our stuff had been in storage for 2 years and there were some things that had been in storage for 7 years. We had one huge yard sale and Mom and I are going to do another. They are alot of work, but the first one I made enough for a new coach! Now I am working on end tables.
Well, there are lots more changes. I will try to get more pics and post some soon.
I have the three younger girls for the weekend, so I decided to do something other than sit around the house. Genesse had their Parade today. We went last year and had a really good time. They put on a really nice Parade and the kids get a ton of candy. This year was even better, they had rock climbing, jumping castle, dunk booth and lots of vendors. My Aunt Deanna went with us and Christel and Layla met us there.
When we got home I set up Bonsai Falls and the little pool and we chilled out there with Christel and Layla. The rest of the evening we have devoted to watching movies and eating munchies! I call that a perfect day!! Hopefully we will get to do it all over again tomorrow!
So I entered Phil in the Father's Day contest through Morning Mayhem. He has been working so hard on our house including everything else he does. We just want him to know how much we appreciate him and all he does for us. You can vote by calling 208-750-1051, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to Morning Mayhem on MySpace and place a comment. Thanks so much for the support.
The Kitchen Cabinets went in yesterday and I am totally in love with them! They look even better installed than when they were sitting in my living room. Things are starting to take shape and it is so exciting!
Here is my hubby working hard. He is going to be doing all out tile work. It is something he has not done before, my cousin Chad came out to the house and gave him a crash coarse. By the time this house is done there will be nothing he can't do. I have a ton of tile so he will probably be really good by the time we are done. He just took off his next set of days, so starting this next kellys he will be off 21 days. I am so happy...my hope is that he will work out there and be able to come home and get some good sleep at night. Me and the girls are so proud of him and all of his hard work. I look forward to the day he can sit in his recliner, drink a beer while watching TV and look out the windows to the view he loves!! He deserves it!
This is one of the downstairs bathrooms with the tile down. I think it is all coming together really nice!
We had Addyson's gymnastics recital last night. She did so good! Her sisters were there so she was a little show off and she gets bord while she sits and waits her turn, but other than that she does great! I am so excited to scrapbook these pics along with her certificate!! She is going to go to VBS next week and I think we will continue gymnastics. And then the following week she will start swim lessons. It is going to be a busy summer with her and all the house stuff.
SO...my cabinets have arrived and will be installed next week. Be looking for lots more pics!
Well the walkways turned out great. I am so excited to get in and start some landscaping. Phil has been busy laying Hardiebacker so they can put in our cabinets this week. He just started his kelly days so they will be full of working on the house.
Addyson and her princess dress and her heal shoes, she has been wearing them everywhere! We just went out to take some pics and bring him some beverages.
The paint is done and I love it! I was not sure when it was wet, but it looks great now. And it looks great with my tile. There is still lots to do. But it is coming to an end.
Well she is still loving gymnastics and is doing really well at it. She just picks things up and has no fear of anything. Kinda scary actually! We are going to continue through the summer and hopefully move up in September.
This is my favorite face to look at. She is my love!
Phil and Jesse have been working their asses off to get the house painted! Things are starting to look different now. Next week it will start looking like a real house! I spent the majority of my weekend running around picking up the odds and ends of things that the boys were needing to keep going, anywhere from paint to food. They will be finishing up tomorrow and the girls and I are going to go out and take all the plastic off the windows and the paper off the floor. I get some pics and post tomorrow.
Yesterday we poured the rest of our concrete. Thanks God! I don't think I have put pics on of the decks yet, we just need to get the railings on now. Painting will start today hopefully and our cabinets are ready to go in next week sometime. The carpet guy is out measuring today and Phil will put down the backer board when the painting is done. Chad came out to the house to check out the tile job and is going to try to make time to do that for us. I will take more pics this weekend and get them posted of the progress made over the long weekend. Even my Dad was helping out with all the concrete yesterday. With the weather so nice it was setting up pretty quick. So it was all hands on deck. We also had Winger stamp all of it, it is going to look so nice!
We had been out there all day and running errand for Phil. She was pooped by the time dinner time came around. She only snoozed for about 20 min. And we were both filthy dirty by the time we got home. She was really good out there though, she loves to be outside!
