...it's been awhile since I've posted anything. Every time I have talked to someone, they have all told me that I haven't posted for awhile. It's only been 12 days! Cameron lovingly reminds that I need to post something. I guess that is how it started out, now I've been getting threats from him that if I don't post something, he will... Probably post one of those fun pictures of me sleeping that every husband likes to get. The kind when you have a really long day and you end up falling asleep on the couch, drooling with your mouth open and you have rubbed your eyes so your mascara is smeared all around...Yeah, one of those.
So here's what we have been up to...
In the three weeks we have been here, we have already had 2 house guests, Cameron's mom and his friend Ryan. That's a really good trick to get everything unpacked really fast. Invite people to come and stay with you. Then tomorrow, Cameron's parents, two of his sisters, and his youngest brother are all coming for Christmas.
Riley has learned how to do head stands in the corner. Coleman taught her. She just goes up to a corner and will hang out there for awhile upside down.
Zack thought it would be fun to have a candlelight dinner. So we did.
We've been painting, A LOT, and we aren't anywhere close to being done. I always thought that I didn't mind painting, but I have changed my mind. I don't like it, at all. Especially when you can only do it at night when the kids have gone to bed. Cameron's mom helped me paint these book shelves for the office. We painted the morning room wall. It was really bright outside when I took this picture, so you can't see the color very well. We had originally bought a darkish orangish brownish color. But I started to freak out that it was going to be to brown. So we had it retinted with a little more red. Now it's a orangish redish color. The original color I wanted was a burnt pumpkin color, but I think this turned out good and we really like it. Who knew painting could be so romantic. It took almost four coats to cover this.
I made curtains so the neighbor can't see in. Cameron helped me sew them...Yes, Cam can sew. Shhh....don't tell.
Our really boring, really plain Christmas tree finally made it up. The only thing on there are the lights. That's about all that is going to go on there this year. Next year will be it's extravagant year!
Of course, half our days are filled with figuring out those stupid Transformers. Many tears of frustration have been shed for those things. In our experience, it really does take a Ph.D. to figure them out. But, they are a 5 year olds best friend.
