Sean's Big Project

I can't wait for Sean to be done with this big project of his. He has been working on it all winter. I just had to share, because he has been working really hard on it the last couple of weekends. We tore out the shower and putting in a whirl pool tub. He bought the tile yesterday. So looks like that might be next weekends project. I still need to pick a paint color. I think I still have time, Sean said that will be last.

I got a good start on my laundry this weekend, so I just need to go fold it and put it away. Then I told Olivia we could go to the park. It is suppose to be 59 today! Awesome weather for the end of January!!

Little Girls Apron

 I can't believe my baby is turning 2 this weekend! When Olivia turned 2 I made her an apron to go with the kitchen we got her. Emelyn also LOVES to help cook. So I thought she needed an apron too. So this morning I whipped this up. It was a lot easier the 2nd time around. Hopefully, no one looks to closely at my stitching. I am not the best seamstress. Maybe someday when I figure out how to hook up my scanner I will post a pattern. This was really easy.
The hardest part about this project, was the ties. They aren't hard, just time consuming. You have to turn them inside out. I did see on a blog, instead of using material for the ties, they used ribbon. Which was very cute. I decided I already had the material so it was a money saving thing.
Can't wait to show you the cake my sister-in-law is making for her. It is going to be super cute, so stay tuned!

Job Chart

A New Year's Resolution for my children. JOBS! I couple of months ago I made a chart on the computer for the girls to do, that lasted a week. I never went to the basement to print off another copy. We are going to try it this way and see how it works. They are usually good helpers without a chart, but this will hopefully help us to be more consistant.
