Room Renovations

We're finally starting to make some progress on Courtney's new room.  Other than hanging up her bulletin board that Mimi and Pops bought her and hanging her new chandelier, it will be finished until we move her into a full size bed.  We have already purchased her full size bedding from Pottery Barn Kids, and it will coordinate with the colors that are already in her room. Probably in another year we will be looking to move Courtney into her full size bed.  We'll post more pictures after we "officially" finish the room.

Courtney's room should  look like this when she moves into her full size "Annie Cat" bedding from Pottery Barn Kids.

Phoebe and Daphne Update

Here are some recent pictures of Daphne and Phoebe.  Daphne still has a lot of puppy in her and has a lot of energy.  She will be 1 year old in October.  Phoebe will be 4 years old in September, and the two of them get along well and enjoy playing with each other.  As you can see in the bottom picture, they both get a good workout when they play, especially Phoebe, LOL.

New Deck Color

The last three weeks we've been painting/staining the deck and so far we have completed the rails.  We are moving very S...L...O...W...L...Y, but we've been battling the rain and heat.  I also might mention that the rails have taken three coats of paint/stain which has also contributed to the delay.  The first two pictures posted on this blog are the some we found on the internet that have given us the idea to paint the deck and the rails two different colors.  We love the white rails, cedar floor look and haven't really seen many decks stained/painted this way. Hopefully when we finish our deck it will look something like the first two photos.  We will post pictures when we have our deck officially completed!

This is our deck.  I had just finished the third and final coat, so Philip and Courtney came outside to inspect my work.

Hopefully next week our deck floor will be painted cedar.

Family Get Togethers

We always have a fun time at my cousin Denise's house and we ALWAYS enjoy their fabulous pool.  Courtney really loves the water and getting more and more comfortable with it everyday. She now will jump in as long as someone is standing there to catch her.  Enjoy the pics!

Courtney and Uncle Chris chillin out after a fun day of swimming.

Courtney likes to make sure everyone is watching before she jumps in... she's such a ham!!!!

Jumping In!!!!!
