Random happenings

I saw these rose balls last week on a blog and decided that I needed to make some.  I figured how hard could they be all I needed was styrofoam balls, crepe paper, and hot glue.  They weren't hard but they were sure time consuming.  I do love how they turned out.  I found this planter box and painted it and added they vinyl, and the berries.  I love how it turned out.

We had the Bellamy's over friday night for games.  We went downstairs to check on the boys and this is what we found.  Jason wanted the tv mounted on the wall to keep little hands away from it.  They have just found other ways to get close to the tv. 

Ashton is totally potty trained and has been for a couple of weeks now.  Overall it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, it started out a little rough but once he got the hang of it we were good to go.   It is so nice cutting down on the diaper changing every day. Now if only Noah would potty train I would be in heaven :)

I have been wanting to get going on some of the projects around here that we have been putting off, we are really good at putting off projects.  This weekend I decided we needed to tackle something.  We have been wanting to take out the door that was between our bedroom and the bathroom upstairs forever.  It was not useful and more in the way than anything.  We never used the door and I thought it would be better to actually be able to have the wall space.  So we got the door out, added some 2x4's, got the drywall up, and one coat of the joint compound stuff.  Hopefully by this weekend we can be ready to paint.

We got it framed up so we can put up the drywall

First coat down, now we have to wait 24 hrs for the second coat.

I love how now that everyone blogs instead of instantly screaming at our kids we run and get our cameras first :)
