Baby Kinlee's new quilt!

I have been really looking for something that I could do that is "crafty" for the baby. I am very excited to make tons of stuff for her to keep me busy. I LOVE the colors pink and brown for her, so I decided I would make a really cute pink and brown quilt. I looked EVERYWHERE for cute fabrics, but had no such luck. They were out of everything! My sister had made some really fun bags for her kids just before Christmas, and she had the perfect fabrics for it, so she went to Twin Falls for me to pick up fabric. (Nice sister I know). I am definitely NOT a sewer, so she had to help me a ton. Kevin also picked up some nice sewing skills and helped me out, until he got bored and decided it was time to play with the little kids toys. He built us a sweet castle. We ended up getting the entire thing finished in less than a week, only working on it a few hours a day. It was a very fun project and I'm pretty sure that I will be making another soon.

The Kitchen

This is the work in progress, as we were painting.

With the flood this last summer we were forced to do an upgrade/ remodel in our kitchen. Luckily our insurance was kind enough to step in and help :). All the cabinets are new along with the counter top, sink, and facet. We decided we also wanted to give the house a bunch of color. I will get some pictures of our other rooms up here at some point, but the kitchen we painted this great red color. We love it! Kevin always ends up doing most of the work because of a few reasons:
1) the fumes in general
2) I get frustrated when things go wrong
3) He doesn't want me climbing a ladder
4) He does a great job!!
haha. So really we can thank Kevin for this great kitchen!!


Arielle and I decided to have a girls night +gus. We watched the hills, ate a TON of junk food, and fell asleep on the couch. Blanka, her puppy also came over to keep gus happy, so he needed a bath!! This is him in the process. He looks so stinking cute, but HE HATES BATHS!
