Happy #2 Birthday Cole!

You are so adventureous and ready to go - although not with just anyone. 
You love keeping up with your brothers and bugging them a bit too!

Happy #2 Birthday Colee!  We love you and can't wait to see what God's does with your life!

I have been thinking of trying to cut the boys' hair for a long time - thinking it looked so easy when I took them to the hairstylist.  Well, I know its NOT easy but then a friend of mine forwarded me this link and I thougth I'd give it a try.

Here's how it turned out.

Binder Family Rules

It seems like many in blogland have been coming up with their own set of family rules.  I loved the idea and have been wanting to put one together for a while.  With our dining room redo and not a lot of money to spend on wall art, I decided to make our family rules as a centerpiece for the room.  I love how it turned out. 

I used the step-by-step instructions from April Moffitt Design - to put this together.  The only thing I did different was I printed the rules on the scrapbook paper using our home computer and printer, rather than writing them on the paper.  I'm not confident in my handwriting abilities.  Check out all the designs online, pull your family together and make your own!

A Dining Room Redo

I have been wanting to paint our dining room for a very long time now.  It was the first room in the house that we painted when we bought the place in 2003.  I wanted something bold so we went with a dark blue and used white and beige as accent colors.  We are so proud of how it turned out.

We painted the fireplace white - a very big deal!  It turned out so great!

Labor Day Weekend Camping

We had a great time camping Labor Day weekend with the Thompson family.
We did have to come home early due to rain but that worked out ok.

On Saturday, the kids got to enjoy the beach along the lake.
