Janurary 31st

Our little feisty peanut turned 2! Happy BIrthday to you sweet girl. You bring so much light and fire to our little family. We love you so deeply. We love watching you learn and grow. Somehow you find a way to make our hearts grow even more with each day. We love you to the moon and back a thousand times!

Here are some pictures from Kinsley little family dinner party. Olivia themed for this little love dove.

Birthday kisses from brother...not her favorite.

And a monkey suit for our monkey!

And in my spare time...

And in my spare time I have been keeping busy doing projects for a few friends and family... thinking it might be fun to start an Etsy sight...we will see.

Santa 2014

Well Santa was a bit late this year to his visiting location..and I think I know why..he was having a major beard malfunction. My kids were so into Santa, no tears or anything...I think they were very curious as to why his beard kept falling off! LOL! Fun time with Santa regardless.

Hello December

Its December.. and I have to admit I almost decided to stop blogging...I just don't put that much time into it anymore. Sad but true. I do realize thought that a lot of our life is documented here and I would like to have that to look back on some day. So here I am trying to blog again.

We have been doing a lot of projects around the house that keep up busy. Not that our kids don't do that, but I do like a good project here and there....

But before I start with that I do owe a few pictures to Kade for his birthday party that happened in July. Ouch! I am so behind. Baby boy turned 4. We did a small park party and then took him to Gilroy Garden. He was a happy kid with both events.

Back to the home improvement projects...We just had our gross-a#$ popcorn ceilings finally removed! Yippeee! Oh how I was so happy to see them go, and to go along with that we had the carpets cleaned and are working to replace all the light fixtures through the house..minus the kitchen and our bedroom.. Before that we did a small make over in the hall bath..removed the wall paper...and painted the cabinets and added some fun things...we repainted the kids room and put up bunkbeds and had a new mantle built for our fireplace..which I have yet to take pictures we go. Pictures will show the fun:)

Kade and his best buddie from school, Hunter:) Those two are like brothers!

Enjoying some cupcakes and snacks:)

Here is what we had before. Oh that wall paper!!!

I had fun doing the small little projects.. the Zebra took along time to make, but Kade really wanted one in the bathroom...and the pallet art was got naked and pretty much rolled around on the wood! And the mirror was a project I worked on with a friend..He built it and I stained and distressed it. I like the improvement for sure.. Still need a new faucet, and we will be set for a while until the kids fight over the sink and then maybe we will add that in:)

Part of the kids room. Kade wanted a blue room.. and since both kids are sharing..We did a really light blue color:)

Junk collecter

Light that Kade picked. I am a sucker for all these new vintagey depot light fixtures right now.

These moments are really the ones that matter most....My two strawberry blond kiddos. With Fart-kles on your noses. (Kade we need to work on your pronunciation on that word.) You are loved. You are wild and crazy. You make me crazy. But I love you both to the moon and back. xo

Done it again...

I am having a hard time keeping up with this blog. It is just not on the top of my list these days. And it is getting neglected. So I will just over load you with pictures of my sweet little love doves and call it a day.

Kinsley is a sweet and not so sweet 16 months old. She is one fiery little pistol most days. She knows what she wants, and will most likely get it. She is not passive...pretty much aggressive, loud and vocal, sweet and cuddley, loves to dance all.the.time. She loves her books and is never with out George. We love her to pieces.

Oh Kade. You are almost 4! How did that happen. My little dinosaur. Lets see. You are my sensitive one. Loud too. You love to wrestle with your sister all.the.time. You love your sister a lot, and some days I think I will explode with all the cuteness between you, but most days I feel crazy from it. You too together are little pistols! You love your trains, cars and bikes right now. Oh and we just had to go the ER yet again for another busted up eyebrow. That is three now! Yikes. Lets be done with that! 

This girl and her George.

Oh and we are working on our bathroom these days. We had this lovely wall paper, that was beyond a b*&^h to remove, sand and prepare for painting. And DYIing things with kids is not eas,y, so yay for us for even getting it done, A+ to Paul and I....

It is looking like this now....We really wanted to remove the counter and all, but we are low on the cash for that one. So we will live with the polka dots and one sink in there for a while longer. And actually, they are growing on me...sad, but kind of true. We are having a mirror made...and then a have a few more projects to do in there and we will be replace the some tile renewal..the boring stuff... oh and curtains, which my husband doesn't understand, but things sometimes just are there because they are cute.

And this is blackmail for later Kade. Yup, Frozen is happening here some extent. Kade sones't like the movie. Kinsley has not clue, except for just loving to put on new cloths and tu-tus...but Kade LOVES the we go with it.

XOOXO you love doves. My life would sure be less exciting without you two around!
