New Color!

OK, here is the nearly finished product! If you look too closely you can tell I haven't finished painting the trim yet. I'm planning to do the rest of the upstairs a tan color so I guess this yellow color is as wild as I get. Dave hasn't realized it yet, but our great-room is now my school colors -blue and gold -go Cyprus! We'll just say they're my cubscout colors. lol

I can hardly wait to replace my kitchen floor now.

Is it Fall yet?

I finally got Dave to fix the broken door that leads from the kitchen to the garage. A couple years ago one of my boys, I'm not naming names but it starts with Ja** locked one of his brothers (M***) out of the house and M*** pushed on the door so hard, it broke out the door jam and the trim in the kitchen. The only way you could keep the door closed was to dead-bolt it. After Dave got the door fixed I knew I would have to paint. I've been wanting to put some color on my walls for some time, but have been too chicken to try it. I wanted a golden leather color so I tried this color. I have never heard so many complaints from my family about a paint color! It did look a little orange in the morning, so I painted a big pumpkin face on it before Zack and I put primer all over the wall. I found a little more golden (sunflower) color to paint it, so when I get the trim and doors painted, I show you what it looks like. Dave picked up a new door to replace the bi-fold door you see here in the picture. About 8 years ago, two boys (Ja** and Jo**) were throwing my hand weights at each other, someone dodged or ducked and the weight went through the door. It has been covered ever since with a picture of Jesus and a scripture.."I will go and do the things the Lord commands".

Finally something new!

Ok, so I've been a slacker! Gotta get those boys in school, whadyawant?

Dave and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary. I talked him into going to Strawberry and not catch any fish. Here is Dave being very successful at that.

His sister Joyce was kind enough to let us stay at her fabulous cabin nearby. We cooked Fillet Mingon, stuffed mushrooms with lots of fresh veggies...Yummmm! Dave made his famous omelets for breakfast. It was a perfect weekend!

This picture turned out pretty good. Sam took this picture of us at Aaron's wedding.

Here is me and my people on the set of Good Things Utah with the cast sitting up front.

This is what Mom wanted to do for her b-day. Happy B-day Mom!
