The transformation has begun!!!

John is on vacation this week and he LOVES to do hunny do's on his vacation (he would really rather be fishing but he loves me and does the hunny do's first). This vacation he is starting off by painting my kitchen. Many of you that have been over in the last year may have noticed that we got new countertops in January...but we did not paint the kitchen and we had this cool new texture - glue from the back of old formica on the walls. Well not anymore!!! I can't wait to show you the pictures. It will be done tonight so stay tuned!!!

Halloween 2008

We had a fun evening planned but when we got word of some not so fun stuff happening at John's work this week we decided to cancel in case we needed to be more focused on something else...So when we were saved from this months layoffs we decided to go ahead and just take the kids down the street to trick or treat. This was our first year to get to trick or treat. The kids usually go to a Fall Festival or we just don't do anything because they had enough Halloween fun at preschool.

James was a Recycling Man...he was totally excited about it - not many others really knew what he was but he did not care one bit!

Jorja was a Fairy Princess...she could not decide if she wanted to be a fairy, princess or a original thought was to make her an orange fairy princess but that idea came to an end when the only wings we could find were pastel. So here we have a beautiful fairy princess.
