Finger Painting Fun

Ben's teacher Ms.Erin said she wishes she could do some baby art with the little ones at school. She has tried pudding and shaving cream with the little ones she has worked with in the past. So today I decided to let Olivia try to express her creative side. I got her down to her diaper and let her get nice and messy! Ben and Olivia both made some great pictures and as you can see they had a blast!

Painting, Painting and More Painting

Here is the new Master Suite painted with the window trim in place. It looks great! My mom has been busy painting last week, all weekend and today. She has everything painted all the way to the family room. I repainted one wall in Ben's room but that is about all I can take credit for with this round of painting.

The family room still needs painting but I primed it a couple weeks ago and even the primer helps make it look more finished. Olivia's room is painted and the new closet shelf and bar are in place. I still have all the window/door trim to paint but that will wait until we are back in the house.
This is why we are still living across the street! We still have a mess over there and it will be a couple more weeks before we are home.

Family Photos

It was time for Olivia to have her 1 year pictures taken so in the snow storm we drove to my cousins Jeff and Julie Dreke's house to have her photo shoot. We also got some good ones of the family, siblings and kids by themselves. I am always amazed at how many turn out because it never seems like it is going well during the shoot (see the last picture!)

Thanks Jeff!
