Kate's play area

As you can see, Kate loves her new play area. On the left will be shelves to store all of Hunter's and Kate's toys.


This is their closet to the left and the entry to their room. We still need doors.

Alex's side

We decided to do a pirate theme in their room.

Hunter's side of the room

This room is a great size. On the other side the boys each have a small cubby to hang out in or put stuff.

Almost done!

Here's the latest. We just got carpet yesterday. Very nice. It's nicer than the rest of the house. We went ahead and moved the boys in. We decided we could work around their stuff. Yay!

This first pic is of the new game room (hope to get a foosball or ping pong table soon). This use to be Hunter's room!

Day at the Park

A bunch of us from church went to the Glenloch play area today. The kids had a blast and it was nice to talk with grown-ups. Kate loved the slide and can now climb up herself and slide down. We stayed for several hours. Thanks for the idea girls!

This is a great gadget!`

I found this Wilton chocolate pot the day after Valentine's day. It's great for melting chocolate. It was so easy to make the Red Velvet treats. The chocolate melted so fast and doesn't burn.

Red Velvet Choc. treats

Ok, so I made from scratch the red velvet cake and the cream cheese frosting and made Bakerella's treats. They were so yummy. It made about 60. Here's a few pics of them and also of Kate enjoying them.

Been a while!

I guess not much is happening in our lives right now. We are waiting to get carpet in the boys new room. Hopefully within the next week. We can finally move them in and slowly but surely finish the rest. I can't wait to get those rooms organized. The mess is driving me crazy!!!
