Girls night out!!!
Me and Jennie needed a 'break from reality' So we went to town last night, had a little dinner, then went and saw 'He's just not that into you' We laughed through the whole thing. The movie was 2 1/2 hours long, and it seemed like an hour. I did not want it to end. And yes it makes me so glad to be married and not deal with 'is he going to call'
Anyway way cute show.

Now that my coat rack project is finished, of course I have to start another one. My dad brought me up this old dresser. I am going to refinish, or paint or crackle or do something to this, I am not sure yet. but keep checking back, I will show you the result when I decide what to do!

OK. so this is one of my many wild and crazy ideas that I come up with, then my dad has to help with. This is my laundry room. There was a window here, but I thought it was a worthless window, it let the cold in in the winter, and the hot in, in the summer. So of course I decided I was going to close off the window, and have a nice bench and coat rack. So a couple of weeks ago me and brian closed off the window, and called my dad to help with ideas for a bench and coat rack. My dad found the coat rack part at IKEA(fun store, I could get in so much trouble in that place) So me and my mom went to see the coat rack, I loved it and bought them. Then I found a bookshelf that if I turned it sideways, would be the perfect bench, but it was too long, so my amazing dad, built one that would fit!!! I absolutly love it. The kids have their own baskets to put their shoes in, so I don't have to trip over them to get to the washer and dryer. It is a perfect fit, so dad, thank you sooooooo much!

Happy Birthday to our sister!
Every year on Meggans birthday we celebrate for her. This year we made cupcakes, then arranged them in an M for Meggan. For some reason, this year was harder on Alli, she wishes she could hang out with her big sister. Maybe someday! Here are the 4 kids celebrating and eating the yummy cupcakes!

Happy Birthday Meggan!!!
Today is Meggans birthday, she is 17. It is hard to believe that she is that old already. For those of you that don't know her, she is Brians daughter from his first marraige. She sure is a beautiful girl. And we all sure miss her. I have a bunch of cute younger pics I wanted to add to this, but Brian lost the cords to my scanner!! Sorry B I had to rat you out!

Who doesn't love cookies?????
Here are the 3 older kids decorating cookies for our neighbors. Its a tradition!

Valentines packages from grandma and grandpa Carroll! Grandma and grandpa have sent the kids a valentine package every year! The kids love getting their mail. And they LOVE eating their chocolate, especially Jason this year. Thanks grandma and grandpa we love you!

Better late than never!!!
Here are the 3 kids with their school valentine boxes. This year Alli made hers at school with her class, but both Joey and Zach needed to make one at home. This is our attempt at creativity. For Zachs we used a game we had, the ants in the pants sponge bob square pants version, took it apart, and put it on a box. As you can see, Zach loved it. For Joey we tried to do a rodeo set. We took one of his bulls, and a couple of cowboys put them inside a paper fence. He totally loved it.

Here is me and Jennie ready for the commercials in 3D! Some of them were actually pretty cool. But NOT as cool as we are in our glasses. And here is my Jason. He had to clean up after the superbowl. The adults were way too tired. Good job Jason!

Well it is recorating time AGAIN. Alli was ready for a change from the yellow walls. So I took her to lowes and let her pick out the new color. This is what she picked. It is called Limenada. We think it turned out pretty well. And she is happy, and thats what matters.
This is the before picture of her yellow room.
