First of all, today was so peaceful! Other than my making the DIRE mistake of taking both dogs to a local, wooded creek on my own (imagine two dogs tied around various trees and simultaneously dragging me through the water, me losing my shoe, and having to slog through the rocky bottom with one bare foot while trying to convince them to leave - it was NOT pretty), I got a lot done. I ran out of time before I could do the blog marathon, so that will be tomorrow morning, but at least I'm making progress!

So, for today, I'm posting a bunch of pictures of various things (also notice new kid pics on the sidebar):

We finally finished working on the kitchen! Here are the before and after shots:

From this:

To this:


Our church's VBS went off really well - here are my favorite photos from that:

This is the castle I built out of cardboard:

The downstairs hallway (that's a rollercoaster mural hanging on the wall that was left over from another event, and the ceiling decoration is a printed paper I bought at AC Moore):

The carousel animals we borrowed from another church who had done the same program, and I used them to make a 'carousel room':

... and the Galactic Room:

OK, that's enough photos for today!!!!! :)

That doesn't even look like the same kitchen!!

You did such an amazing job with the VBS decor! They're going to make you do it every year!
