Living room painted! So much better.

My awesome helper. Isn't the blue so much better than the old green?
Damien was a little more creative with his painting.
The new laundry room - taped, spackled, primed, and ready to be painted. I wanted to do the easiest room first (read: smallest and least noticeable) so that I could get through my learning curve there. It's my first time painting a room, after all.
Uber-cute Jack having fun with Michael's cane at church. He was pretty dang good at balancing that thing too!
Took pictures of the new apartment. These are a few choice favorites...
The kitchen. With the wallpaper. And the matching oven mitt. Classic.
The person you can't see very well is Nice, my new landlord/my cousin's wife. She's the one who is letting us choose our own colors to paint. That makes her very wonderful and very loved - and you will see why in just a second...
This just makes me snicker every time I see it, but I think it will have to go. How can you take a bathroom seriously when it has a Spongebob toilet seat?
Aaaah. And here it comes. Our favorite room....
Wall number #1 - dark maroon.
Wall #2 - dark maroon stripes.
Wall #3 - dark maroon
And a fan painted to match.
This is why we love Nice right now.
I had to get a picture of this before we packed up the boy's room. Damien had a hankering once to cut out some magazine pictures and tape them too the wall. These were added to in later years with the additions of the name paper, the primary sticker, and the yarn. (Again with the yarn. Hmm.) It's been there, on their bedroom wall, for at least 2 years. Damien had a hard time taking them down. So did I.
After. Sorry - no before for this one. On Wednesday I emptied out this armoire and packed up most of the family room stuff we didn't need.
Packing the laundry closet - Tuesday.
... and after.
Not as impressive, I know. I was really tired after Monday's packing.

Snow in April. This had me laughing out loud all morning. I loved the beauty and pure fun of it all!
Johnny's first game of the season. This was taken during one of his few breaks, which is why he looks so red and tired. He should be tired - scoring the first goal and then six more after that. Seven goals!?! That's my boy!
See the "WIN" on the left? That would be me. And that's my little blue guy doing a little dance. See the "LOSE" on the right? That would be Michael. And even though you can't see it, his guy is twitching in what looks like death throes. Aaaah. Sweet victory.
