Let Me Put My Surprised Face On

We’ve been talking up switching Maggie and Logan out so that Burke and Logan will be sharing a room and Maggie will have her own room. The first few times we brought it up, there were tears and no one wanted a change. Okay, no biggie – it just wasn’t time.

Recently, along with a trip to Jordan’s Furniture – just to look, we brought up the whole “Maggie into Logan’s room” thing again. THIS time, everyone’s on board (although, Burke is most definitely going to miss Maggie).

To make the switch more appealing, we’ve talked about a new bed and painting the (currently blue) room.  Wanna guess  what color Maggie has in mind for her walls? Can you believe there’s actually a color called Princess Pink?! Ya. That’d be her choice. Luckily, it’s not Pepto-bismol pink, and even better – it’s just paint 😉

Makes My Monday: Paint!

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation is awfully busy hosting all these great things…

I leave Mike alone for a week, and what happens?? I get the following rooms painted:

Hallway

I don’t really go around taking pictures of my hallway, so no before picture. Mike did both the up- and down-stairs hallways!

Back Entry way

Same as above…no real picture from before. (And I just couldn’t wait for Mike to take the tape off … so please excuse the blue lines LOL!)

Bathroom

The only before pictures I have of the bathroom are focused on the tub…not the walls, so no before picture here either.

Dining Room

Not a great before picture…but it gives you a little bit of an idea.

Living Room

Again, not a great before picture…but you get the idea.

So…paint and a very hard-working husband make my Monday. (I can’t believe how much he got done in a WEEK!!)

A Fresh Coat

…of paint!

Step 2 in the kitchen renovations. (Step 1 was new curtains.) I don’t know how many steps there will actually be…but there’s definitely at least one more (HUGE!) one. *grin*

A lovely shade of “Lantern Light” (yellow).

It’s EVERYWHERE!

…except maybe the diaper. Ya. It’s been one of THOSE days. Logan exploded through his diaper while sitting in his high chair this morning. A complete outfit change and a full load of laundry later…all is back to normal. Well, whatever normal happens to be at the moment. 🙂

It’s EVERYWHERE Again!!

…except maybe the paper. The twins decided they wanted to paint this morning. Have I mentioned that they are 3.5? Thank goodness it was the water color paint … but I am going to have to break out the Magic Eraser in a bit to make the table white again… I suppose I’ll take paint over poo any day though 😉

AND AGAIN!!!

…but this time it’s giggles – so it’s all good. Burke and Logan are playing with the pull-back cars. Pretty cute.
