The cubby hole

This past weekend we headed to Kanarra to get away for a bit.  We wanted to drywall and paint the cubby hole.  (Ryan did the worst drywall job ever, but it's drywalled and painted... good enough.)  I have been wanting to make it a fun place for my kids to play.  We cut a mattress to put on the bottom and we put stick up battery powered lights.  

They have a blast in there!  I can only think that Granny must be rolling over in her grave because we weren't allowed to play in there when we were kids!

Anisa Knows How to Throw a Party

Anisa always throws the best parties.  New Years was so fun, and I think Mom and I both wet our pants playing/watching the minute to win it games.  I'll let the pictures speak.  Anisa, thanks for always throwing a great party!!!

Before & After....The GREEN ROOM!

 From this....

Oh the green room...I like it?  It feels cozy.

No more blue flowered wallpaper!

Last weekend there was a dance at the cobble crest.  So, I thought it would be fun to go... and of course work on the house too!  Libby met us at Granny's Friday night and we spent the whole evening scraping wallpaper off the walls.  Ryan and I went to the dance while Libby babysat and scraped some more (thanks for baby-sitting Libby).  Then, the next morning Ryan and I scraped some more.  Thanks to my awesome hubby, the room is almost ready for a coat of primer.  Here are a few during and after pix!

 Don't worry, Cash cut off a few pieces that we can frame for memories' sake!
 (if only we could get rid of the chimney)

My poor right hand still hasn't recovered from scraping...

Making Progress

Libby and I have BIG DREAMS... alas, this is what we've accomplished so far.... It's looking good:)
Living Room

Master Bedroom (Papa's room)


The Girl Room
Kitchen... needs the most work, but seems like the most work:(

The yard is really looking much better... Cash found the buried sidewalk... it would be nice to get some more grass planted.
Doesn't this look fun???  Anyone is welcome to scrape wallpaper any time they want.
