My kids are so enjoying hosting and hostessing their new found friends that live just down the road from us. For rural kids company is a big deal!

So, today I have 4 little boys and 4 little girls. They are all playing so nicely together. It has been two hours and not one single arguement (that needed my attention).

One of our guests is quite the story teller and had his audience captivated.

It's here! It's here!

The long awaited sandbox is here!!

Hubby got a few days off and was able to build the kids the sandbox that he's been wanting to bless them with.

I haven't seen much of them since!

Thank you, honey!!

Oh Dear...

...I always have such great ideas...until I go to complete them.

I finished my wallpaper project...a little early. After completeting one wall I just don't have enough to finish the other! There's enough to complete about 1/3 of the other side. Arrrrrrgh. I thought about doing one of those walls that has 1/3 one thing on the top and 2/3 something else with a trim to cover the seam but I just saw on a decorating show that is soooooo 90's!! Oh well. I'll figure something out.

Here is some detail of the paper.

Now that the paper is up I think I might paint the laundry room the same dark blue that is on one of my walls in the living room. If you sat in my living room then you can look down and see the blue wall, the kitchen, and the laundry room. I think the blue laundry room would go well while the kitchen contrasts in the middle. Maybe...
