The other day I pulled into the driveway and mike came up to the car asking me to go back around the corner to the garage sale where everything was now free on the curb to pick him up a few things. At this I had flashbacks to when my dad used to make my sisters go pick up "treasures" from the side if the road. I did not inherit the gene for the love of "treasures" like some of my sisters. I was always mortified when the car pulled over to a pile of junk labeled FREE. Luckily, when mike asked me to go get his stuff, my little sister Emily was in the passenger seat. She got out and loaded up mike's treasures. While we were there I noticed an office chair on wheels, but it was nude and brown and pretty warn. I just couldn't stop thinking about the chair. So, when mike went to run an errand, I asked him to pick up my "treasure", he smiled a victor's smile and left. I fixed up the chair for my sewing room, I have to say, I love my free by the side of the road chair.

While I was working on my chair Claire and Noble insisted that their chairs HAD to be painted and get new fabric as well.


We will see in the morning how they like them.
Up next, a coordinating chair for the sewing room. White where the wood is and yellow metal and a matching cushion.

This was a fifty cent chair from the USU surplus that mike picked up about a year ago. We'll see how it turns out.

Millcreek gardens

We went to get a few plants to finish off our garden the other day. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it.

We spent the first month and a half of owning our house working on the inside of our house and now the last two months have been spent working on the outside.

Some of grandpa lee's flowers survived! They are beautiful, if only Claire and Noble could stop picking them.

Here is our herb garden, Mike's pet project

Still lots to do, but making some progress.

Late Night

Last night Mike watched the kids so I could have a night out with Amber, and when I got home this little girl was up waiting for me.

Christmas pjs and all. Oh how I love that cute face!

And I woke up to this sweet boy this morning. What a happy day!

Our day

Today was a day for errands. Claire insisted on a couple of things.

Wearing this awesome outfit shopping, with her tap shoes to complete the look.
Second, she likes to gel buddy's hair every morning.

It must have been a"really hard day" as Claire said, because this is what happened at nap time.

This is where I found Claire when I was done doing a few things on the computer this afternoon. How I didn't realize she was right under me, I don't know.

I just got my new iPhone(I know, a little behind the times). I am testing to see if this works. If I can do this, we should get lots more on here, isn't that always the goal? Wish me luck!
