Before and after, don't you just love those?!
I have been wanting to paint our home's exterior since we moved in. And I finally got the green light--'cause it was my Christmas present! Thanks, Babe!
I recommend the Color Smart mobile app by Behr.
In the end I went with: Behr's Smokestack (N220-3) with Cotton Sheets (RD-W15) on the garage and trim and Club Navy (QE-56) on the top trim. And I love it!!!!!
#1 had a 16th birthday to remember!
|Homecoming dance was on her birthday. What a fun surprise to get asked a couple weeks prior!|
|Her friend did her hair--lovely!|
|What a nice guy!|
Her party was a few weeks later. She wanted to invite friends to hang out at a park and play fun games. DONE!
|decorating drawstring backpacks|
|How many girls can we fit on the slide?|
|Here they come!|
|Still not done!|
|Are these girls cute, or what?!|
|My baby girl is bigger than me!|
|Wish I had this on video because it was hilarious!|
|shower caps + whipped cream + cheese puffs = messy fun!|
|Mom forgot birthday candles. 16 matches were lit and then #1 raced around to blow them all out.|
|Glow friends watch as she ends with birthday presents...|
Even worse that there was no school that day--not even getting to miss school when sick--not cool!
But as you can see, within a few days, she was back to her normal self, saving the world, braving the Costco fridges to secure milk for the family, etc...
Such a posh gal deserves a posh party....
this one'll do
|Italian soda bar|
|the fairytale suspects in our murder mystery party!|
|birthday girl is adorable as Glenda, the good witch|
|Malificent done done it--killing the Evil Queen|
|Happy birthday, beautiful girl!!|
To make this speedy--I will simply list what we did in August and then post pictures. You are all smart enough to label the activities accordingly :-).
Adventures in August were: Tice Family reunion at Aspen Grove family camp (Hubby had to stay home and work--thank you government for picking this as your one and only week to conduct surveys on his Sacramento office--NOT!), school starting for our 10th, 8th, 6th, 4th graders, and one preschooler, deciding on a paint color for the kitchen/family room, my youngest brother's temple wedding and reception, and finally a real vacation for Hubby, with me, in Las Vegas.
