MIA

I know I have been MIA for awhile. I have been busy as a bee, organizing and painting our home. HARD HARD work with two children underfoot. But I finished Isaac room in two weeks. I am starting Ainsley's room by the end of this week. Here is Isaac's freshly painted room. . . still missing pictures on the wall, but you get the general idea.

Every wall is a different color, and I LOVE it. The big brown stripe on the "accent" wall, is chalkboard paint and also magnetic. (sorry the lighting was weird, but the colors are all the same)

This is why it has taken me two weeks to just paint Isaac's room. While I am busy working, and I am thinking my sweet children are busy playing, they are really busy getting into trouble. This was today's mess. While I am cleaning out the guest room, getting ready to paint, the kids found acrylic paint and decided to paint the bathtub. Gotta love it! (Janette this is for you since you think my kids are SO FUNNY! If you want to send Ryan over for some REAL PUNK training. . . feel free!)

Kind of pretty after draining the water! LOL! My kids have talent!

I will be sparse for the next while, but will update as I get new pictures of finished rooms. We will also be taking a little vacation to AZ in the near future, adding to lack of blogging. Here are my cute kids, dressed in their Sunday best, to hold you over until my next post.

Matt-Whitney said...

Love the room. Looks awesome!! Sorry about the bathroom I bet that was fun to clean up. And the kids look as cute as ever!!!! Bless your heart your kids sure do know how to have fun but then you have to clean it up.

Okay, I LOVE the stripes on Isaac's wall. That is awesome...and I bet it did take you forever!

And oh the bathtub! Omigosh. I think I'd die before I started laughing... but then laugh because "what do you do?"

Have fun on your trip to AZ...Should be nice and warm! :)

Love the brown stipe with the green, or was it the other way around. Any ways looks good. Cute sunday clothes!

Lara said...

Love how you did Isaac's room!

And hey, if Mom is painting the walls, why can't they paint the bathtub? They're just helping you out. :)

Haley said...

Adorable paint job! Okay the hair situation is easy...Holly Thomas, in the ward does it!

Aaron & Brittney (Dayton) Bond said...

Cute cute cute! I love his room! I have always wanted to do stipes like that but am too scared to try and make them turn out so straight and perfect like that. What is the secret? (besides lots of patience) :)

P.S. Can't forget to mention how cute the kids pictures are. I love the pose Isaac is striking! So cute!

brianne said...

Yikes! At least they contained the painting to the bathtub... it could have been much worse. Isaac's room looks super cute. I didn't know they made brown chalkboard paint... and magnetic too, how cool! Good luck with the rest of the rooms and keeping those cute kids out of trouble!

Lacey said...

LOVE the colors you chose for Isaac's room! Can't wait to see Ainsley's roomas her colors are the same as Elodie's (I've decided to do hot pink and orange for Addysen's room)

Can't wait to see you when you come to Az. I can't believe you are coming during the summer!

AND, I love the picture of Ainsley in her little dress! SO cute!

Fawn said...

great job on the painting! How fun! hey- when you come to az, if you have any spare time, we should get together. I think that would be fun! let me know!

Minharos said...

I'm impressed at how clean they were in their mess making. No paint on the walls or carpet- how fortunate!

The room looks great, as do the kids.

Chelsea said...

Nice job on the room! Your kids are pretty crazy. You are such a good patient mom! Good luck with Ains' room. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
I love the kids classy pics! So cute!!!

The Tate's said...

Seriously you take the best pictures. YOur kids look so cute in their sunday best! I am very impressed you finished the room in 2 weeks it for sure would have taken me longer. It loos so good. Nice work!!

Audrey said...

Please come and paint my house? Please???

brad said...

well atleast they painted the bathtub and not the rug or walls or each other.....The room looks so great. You had such great vision for the room. I love that one of the walls has a function. Great going. And if it makes any difference it took me three weeks to paint Vanessa's room. love ya

Brandi Jo said...

Oh my goodness! You have your hands full... Did you tub come clean? Issac's room is very cute. You are brave to put up a chalkboard wall. I have thought about it, but I thought it would encourage them to color on my other walls. You'll have to let me know how it goes. Your kiddos are cute. Love the pics!

Collins and Ashley said...

wow! good job! His room looks great! Sydney has gotten into trouble too with acrylic paint! What a pain to clean up! Hope you are doing well! Haven't heard from you in awhile!

Mortensen Family said...

we have no plans either day. Our ward is from 1:30-4:30. Let me know!

Will & Amy said...

The room looks great!! And your kids sure do get into a lot of "trouble"...I'm sure they get that from you and not Mike, right?? Good luck with the rest of your painting!!

The A Team said...

McKenna said...

I love all the colors!!! I can't want to see more pictures! We have the same white shelves in Connor's room.

OMG, I can't believe your bath tub. I love it! I'm so glad you ran and got your camera before washing it all away. Great memories. They definatly have your artist ability.

I love what you did with your sons room. Very inspiring!
