Yes, we are alive. Yes, we are busy. Other than the usual (young kids, school, tedious homework, soccer, piano, practicing, Young Women's, HP meetings, Brett working oodles of extra hours) we have been busy with some FUN things:)
We redid Tobe's room over the Labor Day weekend. It's been on our "to do" list for a while now so on a whim, with little planning, we went for it. All 4 walls used to be a very light baby/sky blue.
So we painted most of the walls a dark tan,
we added a chalk board (with chalkboard paint) to one wall,
and did a wainscot on the main wall of the room.
And here it is:
Tobe loves the shelf to put all of his cars.
I have put the kids in another playgroup this year. This time with boys and girls and with Aly:) The first day was eerie. I didn't like how quiet it was in my house with all 3 kids gone. It's a weird feeling. I didn't know how to best use my time so I took a big fat nap:) It is definitely something I will get used to.
Last Thursday it was at my house. I noticed that the boys did their own thing:
We went to Tuttle's Apple Orchard with a bunch of little preschoolers from the ward. I only had Aly with me so get ready for a bunch of pictures of---ALY!!!
We also had my friend Kelli visit from Alabama and I've been up to a few sewing projects with my sewing friends (pictures to come).
That's all for now. We are trying to enjoy this beautiful fall weather, so we are outside a lot. I usually love this time of year (Halloween is my favorite holiday) but I'm just not ready to say good-bye to summer. Maybe it's because the winters here are so dreadful. So I will enjoy the sunshine as long as I can.
