I finally feel like I'm getting some things done. Once I get the enrichment birthday dinner out of the way, I think more things will also come together faster. When we moved into this ward, we found out REALLY quick how bad it was suffering from lack of people and "normal" people. I hate to say that, but it really is one of those "mission field" wards. When we moved in, we went to church the first week, the next week before church they called me as the 2nd counselor in the RS presidency. I feel like there is a lot of pressure to make enrichment nights good because NO ONE shows up for them. Last activity we had, 4 people showed up. Talk about tough crowd! Since I can't do things the easy way, I've made everyone an invitation and I'll probably be delivering half of them myself to their homes.
We will also be finishing our basement next week. Cameron's brother, Dallin and his family are all coming out. Dallin is a speed framer and he's going to help Cameron get it done fast! (right Dallin!) We went through and got everything priced out - that was a job! But we have a budget and we are sticking to it!
This is part of the basement that Cameron and his dad did during Christmas. Cameron got his man cave back. Cameron even got me a plaque for it! Because I was excited to have that space as part of the finished part, but I love my husband A LOT! (I'm pretty sure I rolled my eyes when he gave it to me.)
Jim built all of these storage shelves, which I love!
I got the boys room painted and I'm half way through making them real bedding. They have always used little quilts or old sleeping bags. Not because of us - in our defense - they liked it that way. They should soon have matching beds! Pictures to come for sure after that mountain has been climbed!
I also set up blogs for the kids. Since I am always on here, I figured it was a good way to do a journal for them. I am hoping it will be easy to keep up with since I haven't been very good about sitting down and writing things in their books. And typing is just SO much easier and faster! At the end of a year I will blurb it so they will have it for them. And then for us, I will just combine it all into one book.
So here's to my goals for the next month or so!!!
