I forgot one picture

I forgot one picture. Also the spot underneath the chair rail will be painted white!

I painted the Kitchen

I started painting the kitchen today. I am far from finished, but so far I think I like it! I think painting the cubbards could be in the future. We will see how things go. For now I am happy with the results of the color. Makes me want to paint more rooms in the house. I will probably paint as much as my marriage can stand!! My husband is wonderful and very supportive, but we both hate the process!

Austin's Sick :(

Austin is sick. He came home yesterday with a temp of 101.5. This morning it was 102.3. He went to the doctor today and got an antibiotic and a new inhaler. He got the antibiotic for an upper respitory infection. Finally, today, he learned how to swallow a pill! Yeah I was very excited! Swallowing a motrin beats the heck out of him drinking like a half of bottle of childrens motrin!! It is funny how animals just know when something is wrong with someone in the family. Stella jumped right up on the couch to cuddle with Austin while he slept. She is a cuddly dog anyway, but I just thought that was so sweet.
There seems to be a virus going around that has a high fever and not much else. Austin is about the 5th kid that I have heard of in the last week to get this. People are saying that it lasts about 4-5 days. I am sure praying that Austin feels better soon. It is so hard to watch a child be sick and not be able to make it instantly better.

Family Movie Night

Monday nights we set aside for focused family time. This last Monday we had movie night!
The kids love to get in their pj's and make a big bed on the floor.

Stella got to have popcorn too, one of her favorite snacks! We watched Beverly Hills Chihuahua, very fitting in our house. Stella barked at the TV for part of the movie, finally she got used to hearing the dogs bark and she stopped. Feeding her popcorn was another way to keep her quiet.

I made popcorn on the stove. My kids thought it was something new!! Actually it was the best popcorn we have had in a long time. It was soooo good. I was actually surprised at myself that I popped it perfectly, not burnt at all and every kernel popped!! Salt and a little butter and we were in heaven! Can't beat the "old fashioned popcorn".

What a mess!

We were sitting in the dining room after dinner last night playing a game. We had cleaned up dinner and the kids asked us to play the game "LIFE". Half way through the game we hear a very loud POP! We all ran twoard the garage to see what was going on. There was nobody outside, so we looked in the garage. We found this A&W rootbeer bottle had frozen and exploded all over the garage!!! We had never heard of this happening before!! It blew the bottom right off of the bottle, as you can see the lid is still on! The kids thought it was the best thing ever!! It will make us think twice about how long we leave pop sitting outside and how cold it gets!
