Once again, I have seriously neglected blogging. I get so busy having fun and keeping up with things that I don't have any time to document it. So, lately we have been doing a lot of fun Christmas activities including a tree, decorating the house, a gingerbread house, community events, ward party, wrapping gifts, making candy, watching Christmas movies, and enjoying Christmas Pajamas.
Last week Ben had to go to D.C. for training so while he was gone my mom came to visit. We had such a great time! She helped me get some projects done, we went on a walk, out to dinner, worked on her RS lesson, played tons of games with the boys and just had tons of fun! We love having grandma visit!
I love getting the kids Christmas PJs. Here is this years pick;
Jacob's PJs say "Chillin with my Homies"
David's PJs say "I'm one tough cookie"
Madeline's PJ's say "I'm Santa's greatest gift"
Finally we are done painting our house! It has taken a long time but it looks great now and feels so much more clean! This is our family room that is just off the kitchen four stairs down.
These two are in the kitchen, you can kind of see how the kitchen is attached to the family room
The kitchen is painted gray and I love the color.
This is the living room/office. Since we don't really have any living room furniture our living room is now our office and music room. It works until we can afford LR furniture. You can kind of see behind the LR is the dining room.
This is the entry with the ledge and new chandelier. We replaced almost all of the lighting in the house because the old was UGLY!
This is our room, it is the same gray as the kitchen which looks great in the bathroom with white linens.
