dining room with new lights

i couldn't tell which view i liked the best so i posted a whole bunch of photos. sorry. boring! anyway, i love the lights. i think it kind of pulls the room together. now to get artwork up and really finish it off. just so you know, my table is never clear like this. it always has yesterday's breakfast bowls and a bunch of legos on it.
the lights are off.

the lights are on. now they look yellow like the ceiling.

that's all folks.

dining room progress

my little worker bees taking a turn at painting. seth loves to help his daddy.

price is really getting into it!

alexus would also like a turn. sorry sister!

i know, the colors are a little funky, but i should be getting my lighting today and i think it will tie it all together. i am keeping my fingers crossed.

gotta clean up this room today so we can get the table and chairs back in. so much to do, so little time!

more laundry room photos

lance finished the counter top for the sink in the laundry room. it matches the other side beautifully!
it will be lovely to have the plumbing finished in here too. the big black sink is from an old high school chemistry classroom. will love using it for clean up.

seth does not look happy. i am not sure why because his life is so wonderful!

summer fun in the desert

we just returned from a trip to the valley. the imperial valley that is. (brawley/el centro, ca) we had so much fun hangin' out with the family. grandma treated us to a yummy breakfast each morning and the boys watched a movie every night. we were definitely in vacation mode. it was a blast! here is the proof!

jessica's birthday party was fun. we swam all day at the dickerson's. alexus is smothered in love. all the girls love babies and she is one of the youngest in the bunch now.
price would not take off his floatie.
but seth took his off and was swimming like a pro in just a few minutes. the kids gave him a couple of tips and at the end of the party he was going down the slide backwards. he is pool safe now! yah seth! here he is sliding with the birthday girl!

 levi taking a break from the pool. so handsome.
 slater and seth climbing the rocks.
 grandpa got strawberry pie for father's day and lucky for us, there were some leftovers. seriously, lance's mom makes the most delicious strawberry pie. see how happy my kids are eating it!
 she looks cute alright, but she is like one of those dogs that growls when you get near her while she's eating. do not try to touch the fork or she will totally flip!
 seth chose red.
get every last bit!

jessica and naked as a jaybird, alexus.
this cat was hanging around the house all week. anyone want a cat.
 it's free and lance's mom and dad don't want it. really. 
binky girl! 
this is the cutest girl in the cutest bathing suit in the cutest shot ever!
great grandma's 85th birthday. we gathered at her home to sing her happy birthday! this is one awesome lady! she is the nicest person you will ever meet. whoops, her eyes are closed and this was the best shot with everyone, darn it. mom made grandma a no sugar added banana creme pie(she is diabetic) and it was so good. when my kids went to throw their plates away, i made sure they were scraped clean before they went in the trash can.  
she made a wish before she blew out the candles. so sweet!
lovin' that pie!
