Tyra's Baby Shower

Yesterday Jade, Lindsey, and I threw a baby shower for Tyra. I have to say it is one of the funnest baby showers I have ever been to. Tyra had a great turn out. It was fun to meet some of her neighbors and friends. After everyone left Tyra, Jade and I stayed up talking until 2:00 in the morning (sorry Todd, Richard, and Jeremy). I think we are all really tired today. But it was worth it!! I really needed a night out to just talk girl talk. Thanks guys we really need to do that more often. Can't wait until Monday Tyra to meet our new nephew. We will be thinking about you and hope everything goes well.

My Grandma turned 85 yesterday. We had a birthday party over at my Aunt Becky's and Uncle Steve's to celebrate. It is always so much fun when we can all get together. It ended up being an indoor barbecue because of this dang weather. The wind was blowing so hard that you didn't even enjoy being outside. And today and tomorrow we could possibly get snow. Is Spring ever going to come? It was still a great party though. Hope you had a great Birthday Grandma!! We Love You!!!

A bad outcome!!!

Ok, so we have been living in our house now for almost eight years. When we moved in all the walls were white. Just so you know I am not a big fan of white walls. It just seems cold and uninviting to me. So when we moved in we said that we would slowly paint all the walls. Well almost eight years later the only room we have painted is the living room. Yeah, if you haven't guessed already it takes us years to achieve our goals. So this weekend we decided to paint the kitchen. When I go to do something I usually have a picture in my mind of what I want it to look like. So I had my paint choices down to two colors. Unfortunately I went with the wrong one. I now look like I live in Tijuana. Just for the record I have nothing against the Mexican motif look. It just wasn't the look I was going for. If you have ever painted a kitchen you know what a pain in the butt it is. It took us all day Saturday. I can't decide if I can live with it or if I am going to change it. Yeah I am very frustrated. Every time I walk into the kitchen I feel like I want a Margarita (virgin of course). If you live around here I may need you to come over so I can get opinions. Anyway, since Jer and I were painting all day Saturday my boys kind of got neglected and were cooped up in the house all day. So Sunday we went up to Eden to my parents condo (my parents were up there for the weekend) so they could get out of the house (and so I wouldn't have to look at the kitchen any more). I love to go up there. I can't even describe how beautiful it is and peaceful. Here are some of the pics from the day.

What is it with little boy's and water? They could have played in this same spot for hours if we would have let them.

Best seat in the house! ! !

I'm not doing anything! !

Check out my new, cool trick.
