Sisters Together Forever!

Yesterday was the General Relief Society Broadcast for all the women in the world! And given to us were messages of strong sisterhood and unity among women. I love listening to our general leaders who keep us directed towards our Lord and Savior. :)

Here is another tribute to Women everywhere (PAUSE music to listen)...

Grandparents Day!

This is Anna's last year in school to celebrate Grandparent's Day, and my parents were able to come, which isn't always a luxury in their lives. Here is a picture of Anna, Grandpa George, Grandma Judie and Amelia :) Thanks mom and dad!

A Project 4 Years in the Making!

I have been wanting to paint our master bathroom ever since we moved into our house 4 years ago! Every time we painted a room in our house I would take a sample and paint it on our bathroom wall to see if I liked it in there too. At least 10 swatches later and living with the accidental, modern painting on my bathroom walls, I decided on a paint color! Monday, Brian and I painted our tricky bathroom....lots of cutting and trim work, so it was time consuming.

A picture of a painted room never quite shows the correct color shade, but this should look bluish with a hint of green :)
Any ideas for the blank wall above the tub??

Back to School & Routine!

First Day of School!!! I'm not sure who was more excited the children or me! :) We really have had a great summer; however, there is something to be said for routine and a schedule that helps get things done :) The children had a good time seeing friends, and meeting their teachers. It should be a great year!

Driving Megan to middle school!

On our way to the bus for Anna and Zachary :)

Anna in her new classroom this morning....Zachary was too embarrassed to have his picture taken in class ;)

Amelia and I stayed home and got a couple things done that I've been wanting to do all summer, but couldn't. However, I had unrealistic views of how the day was going to be, and I soon realized that having Amelia home by herself will still require my time and energy to keep her busy! She wanted to pick from the family fun jar, and the slip she drew was "Making Fruit Loop Necklaces", which kept her very entertained ;)
