Beach Fun

Today it is raining and poor little Miles is sick in bed with the flu but Monday was beautiful. Miles requested a trip to the beach park and we couldn't help but to oblige. I sat back, relaxed and took joy in watching Miles race along the water's edge with his dad searching for rocks to throw into the water.

Finally working on our bedroom

Yesterday I finally got up the courage to start painting our bedroom.  For the past couple of months our bedroom has only been decorated by paint swatches and boxes of stuff that cant find a home until we actually paint.

The problem is that our bedroom has really high beautiful ceilings. Some might think that isn't really a problem but when you aren't really interested in hiring a professional and have to climb up a really tall rickety (its just makes a lot of noise when your on it) ladder to paint well, then it's a problem.

I bought the paint and borrowed a super tall extending ladder from my parents weeks ago so I was ready. My husband and I worked until 11:30 last night. By that point I was so tired and my back hurt so bad that I refused to move our bed so we we slept in the middle of the room. This is the scene to that I woke up to this morning.
Isn't my husband a cute sleeper. 
We have a little more than a wall to paint. Which will probably have to wait until tonight my son is in bed and then I can finally start decorating. Yay!

Pumpkin Painting

I am a sucker for kid's holiday crafts. I am also a suck for pumpkins. I will probably a whole bunch more before the end of November.
Today it's kind of beautiful and warm out. Perfect weather for painting pumpkins. So Miles and I sat down with a plate full of paint, some brushes and three little pumpkins. Two for Miles (to keep his attention just a little bit longer) and one for me.
Miles got right to it like a pro
He is obviously very serious about his pumpkin painting.
and getting messy
and being goofy
When our pumpkins were all finished and dry we proudly made a center piece out of them on our dinning room table.
More Halloween craftyness is coming your way.
