The kids loved their muffin tin lunch! What a great way to teach sharing and to get all of the the daily nutritional needs in. I got this from another website, but I can't remember where. Sorry :(
They loved it!
Our muffin tin consisted of pretzels, yogos, marshmallows, cereal, broccoli, granola, cheese, peaches, hotdogs, watermelon, tomatoes, and cheese crackers.
(Of course, the tomatoes and broccoli were the last to go! LOL)

This weekend we had my parents over, and Sunday was Jeff's birthday party. I started Friday making the cake and kolaches (a special dessert Jeff's grandma used to make). I finished them on Saturday. I didn't really make a themed cake this year. I just didn't have the energy. But, I did make it huge with several layers. It was white and chocolate cake with a whipped chocolate ganache. The icing was butter cream. ( I noticed after the party that I didn't cross the T!!!! I always do that! LOL)
When we got home, Jeff let the kids play on the slip n slide while my mom and I got the food ready. Little did he know, that his brother and sister were coming! He was so surprised to see them. Uncle Bill brought the kids some presents. That was fun!

Awhile back, I got a frame from a yard sale for free. It was late, and the owners said, "Just take it!". I was going to make a cork board out of it, but decided to stick paper in it. I love the way it turned out. Especially since it was free (well, accept the cost of paper, which is CHEAP!).

Cassidy will pee and poop when I ask her to, so I figure we should start training. This only took Jaden 2 days to master. We bought some cute Dora panties today! She seems excited!
We had a playdate with Ireland and Virginia this week. That was fun. We tried a movie, but the kids were anxious to do something else. Jaden was sitting through it okay, but I think Ireland and Cassidy wanted to play. Jaden ate way too much candy! Totally my fault. He was a bit hyper! Here are the kids in all of their cuteness. It was Jaden's first date! LOL
From the movie theater:
I have started get my teaching plan under way this week. That is such a chore! Everything is coming along nicely. We will start homeschooling on August 11th. August 8th, he will get all new school supplies and get introduced to "homeschool". He is excited! I can't wait!
Wish me luck on the potty training.

Linda over at Restyled Home has asked us to post our imperfect makeovers, decorating, or artwork that is in our homes. I decided to participate since I have a few I have done recently. This is the table I purchased off of Craigslist for $10! Just a can of black paint and I love it!
Here are some homemade decorations:
I have so many more things planned to make. I will be sure to post them as I finish them! I can't wait to see everyone's imperfect things! They are the most beautiful and creative things in our home!

Under the stairs won! So, now I need to start decorating! (thanks Phyllis for the tips!) We really haven't done much in that room yet, since we don't have furniture in there. Well, we do, just not any couches yet. It is a work in progress.
So much happened last week when I was taking a break. I thought I would share some pictures from then!

I found a cheap table on Craigslist and saw so much potential for it. So, I picked it up this morning and painted it this afternoon. I love it, I am just not sure where I want it! Here is the before and after picture.
I am not sure if I should keep it by the door or under the stairs?
Let me know what you think!!!!

Awhile back I purchased two antique desks for homeschooling. One is in the playroom and the other is sitting in our dining room. After putting it there, I decided I like it there. I wish I knew of a way to decorate it or make it fit in the room better. Any ideas?
We will eventually be painting the walls green and I am hoping to put some harlequin diamonds on one wall.
