sick kids & new layouts..

Yup.. the kids are sick -again. Missy has the normal, cough and runny nose and Little Man is teething like no tomorrow and has a cold, no cough for him yet – fingers crossed.We are having a ‘cold spell’ so I don’t know if that has anything to do with them not feeling great as it was 80 something the other day and now we’re barely getting to 50 at night.  So I have both kiddo’s at home with me today and we’re taking it easy.

Rick and I have started refinishing Little Man’s dresser. Well it’s Rick’s dresser and side table from when he was a kid – he said he thinks he has had it for at least 20 years if not longer. Rick and Missy sat out on the back porch and sanded down the  side table and the drawer fronts for that yesterday afternoon. Then Missy & I primed it and I have put 2 coats of “the #2 miller lite car” blue on it (we picked the colour from Rusty Wallace’s old car, which is now driven byKurt Busch). I forgot to take before pictures as well as pictures of Missy & Rick sanding, but will of course post some “after” pictures once it’s finished. We still have the dresser to do, so when we start that I’ll make sure to get pictures of it going thru the whole process. We also painted the front door. It’s now a shade of “tomato red. We got rained out on Saturday so it still needs a few more coats to make it the “true” red it should be. With it being cold having the front door off at the moment isn’t going to work, so we’ll wait until it warms up just a little.

Last week (wow it’s really been that long since I wrote here) we took Missy to the Cole Brother’s Circus as it was in town and we promised her a reward for her awesome report card. Little Man hated the first 20-30 minutes but was really into the elephants.. they are so cute who wouldn’t like them? On the way out we let Missy have an elephant ride and I think that was the best part of her night! It was a great night out and something different besides going to the theme parks etc.

Here’s a couple of layouts that I have had “hiding” on my hard drive that I wanted to share.
