Outside Fun

Not too much happening around our house today. We all went to sign the girls up for gymnastics classes. Hannah and Bella will be taking on Mondays and Morgan will be taking on Tuesdays. They watched the other girls for a little bit today and seemed eager to get out there. Hopefully they will enjoy it! Here are some pictures of the kids I took while they were outside playing in the sprinkler.

Anytime Ethan picks up something, he runs to bring it to you! He is such a sweet baby boy!!

Staying Cool

With this HOT temperture, the right way to stay cool is the pool! Since Alan had all FOUR of the kids, BY HIMSELF (what a wonderful husband I have!), there was no way to take them to the pool, so this worked just fine! I hate that I missed it, but thanks to Alan, I got a great picture! Looks like they had a blast!

Sewing 101

So I missed my daily posting yesterday :(...I was too tired last night! After work, Melanie and I stopped by Hancock Fabrics to pick out some fabric for Melanie to make a pair of pjs for Annah Brooke. Keep in mind that this is her FIRST sewing lesson, so we picked out an easy pattern so I wouldn't overload her too much!! Might I say, she was a GREAT student...Listened well, asked questions, and succeeded! She looks so interested in the sewing lesson, doesn't she!?

I am so proud of her!! She did a great job!! A lot better than I did my first time!! Here is a picture of the pjs, all sewn and wearable! LoL :) I hope she enjoyed it, because I have a HUGE list of more projects that need to be sewn!!

So Disappointed :(

I have been looking for a new comforter set for our bedroom for the last few months but just have not found EXACTLY what I am looking for. Well, this morning I was looking through the Sunday sale papers and I FOUND IT!! Linen's & Things had it on the front page! Browns, blues, and it was a 30 PIECE SET!! It had everything in it!! It was $249.00, but after the 20% discount, you couldn't beat that price with a stick!! I was too excited. Here it is:

So I got dressed and went. I looked all over the bedding section and couldn't find it so I asked for help. And you want to know what the kid said, "Sorry ma'm, we sold the LAST one about an HOUR AGO!!!" UGH I was so mad!! I can order it online, but just in case, I wanted to see it in person. Now I'm torn, do I order it or wait? I just can't decide....

After my disappointment, I had to buy something, I just couldn't go home I went to Kirkland's and bought these cute plaques for our bathroom.
The one on Alan's side says: "Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt, Sing like no one's listening, Dance like no one's watching."

Mine says: "One shoe can change your life- Cinderella"

See how great it would flow from the bedroom to the bathroom with the colors! Hmmmm, maybe I will just order it! I can always send it back if I don't like it, Right??

I know I said I wasn't going to post another, but I just want to! I took a few pictures of Ethan after I gave him a bath and it's just too cute not to share! And he really does have hair, unfortunately you can't really see it unless it's wet! Enjoy! Good Night!

Oh, by the way, digital scrapbooking is so much fun. Thanks to Two Peas in a Bucket for the layouts!

One last post for the night

Well, I certainly did not think I would have enough to blog about, but 3 posts in one night...I may be wrong!!

One other thing I like to do is flower arrangements. I bought the things at Hobby Lobby (I just love that place. tons of sales all the time) and put it together tonight!

Maybe I will put it up for a few weeks until Fall gets a little closer. I can't wait for this heat to pass and the cool weather to roll in!!
My next project will be one for our room.

My New Hobby

Ok, so I love to sew and do crafts and I have recently added painting to the mix. Melanie and I went to Hobby Lobby last week and they had a HUGE sale! We decided to get a few canvases and paint for our children, and ourselves!! If I might say, they came out rather nice! Take a look!

Here is the first one we painted. We decided to do this one for ourselves, in case it turned out bad, we could stick in the laundry room or garage!!

If you know me at all, you know I hate to do housework, so I thought this quote fit me perfectly! This will be going in the laundry room, but not because I don't like it, the colors do not match anything else and laundry is where I slack the most! HaHaHa!!

Last night we decided to start on a few more for the kids. Hannah and Bella share a room so I made these to go above their beds.

I am happy with the results! I am a perfectionist so it takes me forever. Each letter has to be perfect and every dot has to be the same size!! I made one for Ethan, I just need to get a picture and I will post it. Next I will paint one for Morgan's room.


After waited anticipation, mainly from Mel, this is my first official post!! I started this blog a few weeks ago and just have not written anything yet. Although my life is very busy, especially with four children, I just do not think anyone would be interested. But, I have decided to give it a try! So here's to the beginning of the look into the life of the Youngs!!
