Whats new with us!

Warning: All photos were taken with a camera phone ---- so sorry!
After getting back from vacation we headed out to an evening on the water. Sunsets are just so beautiful, but on the water they just become breath taking.
I LOVE to draw in the sand.
This week it has been --- PROJECT WEEK. First project at hand is the play room. On the back of the boy's room is a 10 x 7 (roughly) room -- used to be a screen porch we think. It has been enclosed like sunroom. We've used it as storage. With the intent to use it as a craft room or something. With the growing knowledge that my boys will literally break anything of value or worth in the living room, a play room was born. To let you know what has been destroyed this year alone; brand new laptop, flat screen lcd tv, three precious moments, two OU collectible vehicles and........ well probably more but these are the things that I can recall right now. I've already moved all toys to the upstairs hoping it will force them to play in their room. Nope hasn't worked. So now, we are hoping that with the play room they will have their own place.
Cars is the theme of course. Cause "Cars is my favorite movie in the whole world". Both boys are in heaven so far with the decoration.
Still left on the list to finish the room. Curtains; doing a valance with racing black and white checks with a red accent on the bottom. Floor; black and white check (still need to order one more box ran out today). Build one shelf unit for the tv, so the tv can be anchored down. Chalk board; the windows let in alot of light so I am going to take a thin piece of wood and insert them into each of the bottom panes of the windows and then paint them (actually before i put them in there ) with chalk board paint... then do some peel and stick Velcro and they can have fun scribbling and drawing things.

Braden dressed himself this day. Needless to say grandma was going to take them to the park, but when she saw him like this she decided they could stay home.

So that is what is happening over here. We have at least four more projects to complete this week. So there will be more updates. Now I will go and finish re-arranging the living room.
