Labor Day Project

With the help of Mark and my dear Mother-in-law, I recovered our dining room chairs. We have had the chairs for almost 5 years, but only started to use them for our everyday eating chairs about 6 months ago. 6 months of white seats was all we could take. Emily helped me to pick out this fabric and we also covered them in plastic.

I am very pleased with how they look and can't wait to pick out paint next. Our kitchen and dining area will feel brand new very soon!

Here is the before picture. If you want to click on it you can really see how horrible the seats were.

Katie's Party

We had a great time celebrating Katie's 2nd Birthday. We planned an outdoor Luau, but due to rain it turned into an indoor Luau. We invited family and our friends the Driskells and had a fabulous time!
In the past few weeks Katie has become enthralled with Dora. We bought her a small Dora cake just for her!

Katie got lots of cool gifts! Her favorite was probably the cell phone. After she opened all of her gifts she had to take several calls. She is a busy girl.

Ty was very proud of buying her a gift. He picked out a little Dora house.
Being goofy with the big sunglasses....

She did a great job blowing out her candles!

We had a Hawaiian themed menu with Steak, Ham and Chicken Shish-ka-bobs. They were delicious. The ambrosia was delicious and sadly there was none was leftovers. :(

I love this picture. My girls and their 2 grandmas.

Start of Soccer Season

This was our first day of soccer games for this year. Wow! It was hot!

Ty is playing in the under 4 league. It was very humorous to watch and as you can see below he has an adoring fan in Katie.
Emily played in the under 12 league. The field seemed huge! This is her first time playing since Kindergarten. She is doing a great job getting the hang of everything. She is #8 in Lime Green.

Ty is getting direction from his coach for the kick off.

Sarah is a faithful supporter and is eager to get as many of the 50 cent snocones as she can! They really hit the spot.
