Catch up

So it's been a while since I've blogged.  Things over here at LWJR have been a little busy.  I guess we'vve been a little mini summer hiatus.  Theres been a lot going on!

Caution: this should be labeled the most boring blog post ever!

After our trip to Dallas, we decided to do a little make-over of Avery's playroom.

I finally convinced R to paint trim in at least one room of the house just to see how we liked it.
I mean look at that's horrible.  The color is fine but it's so beat up it needed a face-lift. We picked up a color somewhere between white and off white and went to work.
It already looks a ton better.  We picked out a great aqua color for the walls and it looks amazing with the white trim!  I was too lazy to go take a picture of the finished trim and walls for this post.  Not to mention my besties girls, Hannah and Chloe were over and the playroom is a mess.  When Hannah, Chloe and Avery get together, the playroom looks like a tornado went through it.  Pictures to come later.

I suspect that the trim in the entire house will get painted in the next year!  Yay!

We also made the decision to start sending Avery to a Mother's Day Out program.  It was such a tough decision.  Avery stays with my cousin that has 3 kids.  Avery LOVES her cousins-I mean LOVES her cousins but we also wanted Avery to have a little structure during the day.  We found a great Mother's Day Out program and signed her up.  She was excited to go to "Big Girl School"!

I had gotten some really great pictures of Avery that morning but someone forgot to put the SD card back in her camera that has no internal memory. Genuis.  At this point, Avery was tired of pictures!

We've also had our normal chores like laundry.

Surviving an avalanche of stuffed animals.

Weeding (that's R's job!).
But trying to have fun while keeping it all together!

Most importantly, we do it all while sporting some awesome shoes!

So, it's been a busy few weeks.  I'm hoping with summer wrapping up, things will begin to slow down and I'll be posting more regularly. 

This last picture says it all about Avery right now.

Who can blame her?  Mickey is a pretty awesome guy.

More adventures to come!
