It's finished, well mostly!

The day has finally come and the basement is finished!!! Well pretty much finished. There's a few small little things that need to be done but the walls are painted, the carpet is in and Maddie finally has a lovely finished room.

My friend Heidi sold us this HUGE bean bag the other week but it's been shoved in the middle of the living room upstairs. So tonight after we got the doors hung, the beds put in the new bedrooms, we were finally able to rearrange the basement so it could fit downstairs. As you can see Steve is already enjoying it. I think we're both just sooo tired from working in the basement ALL week until 12-2am for 4 nights in a row.
Maddies room looks LOVELY! I've been so excited to get it finished and it's almost there. We need to get a few more things, hang a few more pictures up, get the blinds up and her closet finished but it still looks great! It's such a cute little girls room. Maddie is already loving it, she looked so comfy in her new bedding. I took pictures but I'll take more when it's totally finished.
YAY for having the basement finished! The hard work paid off, now I just need to get everything organised and put away.

Once there was a snowman!

I just made another new craft. I'm planning on making an elf, santa, penguin and a reindeer that will be the same kind of size and style. I also want to make some bigger things so let me know if you have any great ideas. He is $10 unfinished or $15 finished.

Newest craft!

I've had this craft cut out and half way finished for about 2-3 weeks and today I finally finished it. I think it turned out pretty cute. I still need to put the words on which will probably be "Let it snow". I have a bunch of other Christmas ideas that I need to cut out but this week has been too crazy. Plus we're not trying to finish our basement so we'll see if I really get time to cut anything out. Oh well for now I'm just glad this one is finished!

My poor baby

This is what poor little Hadley looked like this morning! Her poor eye is so sore and she hates when you try and touch it. I hope it gets better soon. When Spencer had this last week his eyes were just stuck together a bit and then I washed them off and he was fine for the rest of the day. Not with Hadley though, it just is sad all day. I hope it goes away soon!!!

Where next?

Tonight we've been trying to work on filling all the nail holes with putty in the basement. Hadley was following me around everywhere and then she started getting fussy so I could tell she was tired. I went to go and get her bed ready and when I came to get her this is what I found!

I think my family must like falling asleep in strange places. She's so cute!

New Craft

I've been trying to come up with some more Christmas crafts, this is one that I started the other week and today I finally got time to finish it. I was rushing so I just quickly thought of what designs to put on the presents and I don't love them but they're ok! I need to go and get some silver ribbon, I quickly taped some ribbon on that I had, it doesn't match at all but I wanted to show what I will do once I get the ribbon I like. I'm also not sure I like the mouth but oh well, it's the first time I've made it. I have LOTS more fun ideas that hopefully I can make this week if I have a minute. Let me know what you think!He is $15 unfinshed and $20 finished. He stands 4ft tall!

This is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween!

This year we didn't think Steve's family would be here for Halloween so we really weren't in the mood, plus I was just wiped out! We were glad though when Sherisse called and said they would all be back. Every year we get together and have soup and chili and the kids go trick or treating. It's so nice to be able to spend time with family, we're blessed to be able to live so close to them. Here's the kids in all their cuteness!!! Here's my most handsome husband!!! Steve's hair was getting really long so we thought we would give him a fun haircut for Halloween to go with his ever so lovely mustache! This is what we came up with, sooo GORGEOUS!!!
Steve is starting a new job next week. He has been with his current employee since he graduated from BYU-Idaho. It will be different and hard for him to go to a new job but I think it's going to be so good for him. He works so hard and has done so much for his current employer that I know he'll be successful where he is going. I love him so much and I am so grateful for how hard he works to provide for our family. I LOVE YOU STEVE, good luck with your new job!
