Aunt Ruthie's Sugar Pie Farmhouse

I just had to post about this new site that I have found Aunt Ruthie's Sugar Pie Farmhouse!
It is a great site for homemakers, she has posts about decorating, recipies, stories, family life just about everything. Her site has links to her product reviews, a forum where you can talk to other Sugar Pie sistas, lots of great stuff and all her posts on the blog have tons of great photos. You can find a link to it here under my favorite links.

I am working on the playroom, and since it took me 7 hours to get this far, I decided to go ahead and post a picture, because who knows how long it will take me to finish. The backdoor I have painted a black chalkboard on, we are going to put a small trim around it hopefully tonight. The reason it is taking so long is because the walls are a really rough wood and the grooves are deep so it is a lot of painting with a brush. So you will have to stay tuned to see how it comes out. I really am happy with the color though, it really brightens the room up.

I Peed in the Grass!

I Pee in the Grass, I Pee in the Grass.....
This is what Winston yelled all through Kroger's the other day. We are potty training and it seems he prefers the great outdoors to the potty. This could be due to the fact he fell face first into the potty when his step stool slid out from under him. But I think we had 1 1/2 successful peeing on the potty episodes today, the half is because I found Winston flushing the potty and saying he went in it, but the only evidence was a puddle on the step stool (different step stool than previously mentioned). We had a busy day of yard work today and by we I mean Dave, mowed and pruned and planted some Azaleas. The yard really is looking nice around here, and we are hoping to build a new deck this summer.

Kites, and Crown molding...

Well we had some wind here today.....but before the big storm Dave took the boys out to fly their kites. They had a blast.

Here is the crown molding we installed yesterday. I painted it today. It was really hard to install! but it looks great we are really happy with it. I still have to paint what we put up in the kitchen.

Here are a few pictures of the kitchen. It is almost done just needs a few finishing touches but all the painting is done, Dave put in a new faucet last night and built the shelves next to the stove this morning.

We are making progress, the kitchen and living room are painted and we are moving stuff in. But the camera is MIA. So pics will follow when that turns up. We finally got internet and cable turned on so we are back in business!

Well I finished the cabinets today, except for the hadles which are painted but David is going to have to put those on since I already messed up two cabinets and have to fill the holes and repaint them.....If anyone tells me that they are thinking of painting their cabines I am saying count me out!! What an undertaking! But I think they look tons better, the whole kitchen seems larger now.


Finally!! I started painting the cabinets on Tuesday. I forgot to take the camera yesterday but, I started painting the doors and hope to hang some of them tonight or tomorrow.

The boys love all the open space to play in, but the echoing is driving me nuts!

A train comes by in the late afternoon and they love to watch it from the window.
