David and Ella

Here are my darling niece and nephew... taken just before Easter. We saw Kevin this weekend, so I got the pictures!

After church this morning we went to Amy's for dinner and an Easter egg hunt. It was a beautiful day - a bit on the chilly side, but sunny.

Sarah was the first one let outside for our Easter egg hunt at Amy's. She got a head start finding the "balls."

Rachel and Sydney before dinner... These two can't be separated since Syd moved back.
Brady, Bryan and Daniel- the boys are getting to know each other and enjoy playing together.

Here we are, in our newly painted green kitchen! Candy and DVD's all around

Sarah wasn't sure about the sugar on the Peep she was trying to eat. She made a face and put it down.

All dressed up for church! Sarah just wouldn't give up the pacifier. Sigh...

Home Improvement

We've been working hard, getting our house ready to put on the market. We would just like to be closer to Brad's workplace and Rachel's school! Several projects had been started, so now we're finishing them and starting more! In the past month, we've removed the wallpaper from two rooms and a stairway and painted four rooms. We still have to repair one wall in the music room and the huge wall in the stairway. Then we can finish painting. The trim still needs to be done, as well.
Here I am on the second floor using the steamer to take the wallpaper off. Brad put the ladder over the railing, so I was up high!

Here's a little bit of "before" and "after" together! The striped wallpaper was the same that was in the music room when I was a kid. This wall is plaster and needs a bit of work to be paint-ready. The cream color on the right is the finished product.
The wall behind Mom to the left is the same wall as above.
"After" in the music room...
Try not to pay attention to the three darling children in this picture... check out the wallpaper behind them. It actually came off rather easily, and now the kitchen is painted green.
