Fire Place Facelift and our Precious

Watching HGTV is so good for the home. Let me explain....

One Saturday morning while I was up a lot earlier then I would have liked to have been, I was watching HGTV. When my husband drug himself out of bed, he joined me. With nothing on the agenda for the day the conversation went like this:

Me: lets do something productive on the house today
Husband: ok, what?
Me: lets paint the fireplace and build a mantel (there has never been talk about this project)
Husband: ok, what color?
Me: Dark gray
Husband: ok

The conversation went that quick with no real discussion. A half hour later we were on our way to the home depot with a list in hand. After a very long time in the store we left with half the things we went for and frustrated. See, we had no idea really on how to build a mantel and only one idea we thought would work, but weren't positive. So we headed home and started painting. The following Wednesday we went back tot he Home Depot and Lowes and got what we thought would work for a homemade mantel. The next few days we worked together every night on constructing it. Surprisingly the mantel went together perfectly and was done with no wood shop experience. We are very happy with the outcome and think the results are pretty great for being a project on a whim. see for your self below and tell us what you think.

(Don't mind the child about to head dive off the hearth. He's our little monkey!)
Now for some of our little precious ones. Mainly Zoey, since the last post was all about Landon!

Landon is 1

Happy Birthday to the most loving, happy, slobbery little boy! Landon now weighs 22.1 lbs and is 30 and 3/4 inches long which puts him in the 60th percentile for weight and 83rd for height. His head is in the 50th. We love him so much and couldn't feel more lucky to have him in our family. Below are pictures from his birthday and some of our favorites throughout the year.

Kid Brother Goes for a Stroll

 Zoey just loves pushing around her stroller with her babies in it! This time under supervision she got to push her baby brother. Landon actually enjoyed it, which is good, because I am sure he will have to endure much more and much worse from sissy!

Big Slide....SPLASH

In March we took the kids to the indoor water park on the west side of the state. It is called Great Wolf Lodge and it is a blast! Zoey had the time of her life and continues to talk about it everyday. Landon loved the warmth and white noise of the place and slept a lot of the time.
