Things around here

Everything has been running very smoothly since school started. I have been making the boys lunches every night so that's one less thing to do in the morning. We have also been picking out clothes and making sure that all of their bags etc are by the door so there is no looking for things when it's time to leave.

Emily is loving school and she is excited that Hailey finally got a spot at her school. Now they get to ride the bus all the way to school instead of just part way together.

I am thinking about painting Emily's room. She's had the same colors in her room since she was two months old and they are feeling a little babyish to me. I would like a change and something a little older for her. These are the colors that I am contemplating. I love the dark pink and am trying to figure out how it could work in her room.

There is an old abandoned house across the street and we have gone through it a couple of times simply because I love old houses. Kids have come in and trashed most of it but there is a back door is still in pretty good condition. I have been thinking about what I could do with it and even though I haven't made up my mind yet I asked Rob if he'd go get it for me. If you have any great ideas let me know.

Steph and I are going to make homemade spaghetti sauce tomorrow. Rodger and Terry have tons of tomatoes and we thought it would be fun to put them to good use. We are using a Giada recipe that she found. I hope it's good.

I've seen old doors mounted on the wall as a "headboard" look above a bed. Also seen them used as tables and hinged together with other doors to create room dividers. I'd love to see what you do with it!
