Ahhh Sunday.....

Boy does the weekend go by fast when you got things to do......Saturday afternoon we all headed out for Home Depot.........we got some paint, supplies and a bunch more paint samples....The kids just love them and love picking them out....plus it kept them occupied while our paint was getting mixed up....."paint samples everywhere for everyone"......So I have been thinking and looking at the sample of red we picked out and I am pretty sure that we picked the same red that we had in Issaquah......We are searching for the old paint sample (yes we kept it).....Shawn thinks its a different color but will be totally impressed if I am right.....The cool thing was we were able to use the primer we already had....yeah....and it was just enough......same goes for the ceiling, we used a white we already had....so great......(in case you didn't know our house interior is all one color, a very light tan/sand with white base boards and window sills, it actually pretty nice).....

So here it is Sunday night and we have made some major progress....Shawn pretty much painted the room by himself, we got the ceiling done yesterday while the girls napped......and Shawn worked on the primer for the red and red today, while I took all three girls out to Costco and HEB, the local grocery store chain.....its not easy to paint with all the kiddos around, trying to keep them out of the room, out of the paint and away from the fumes....nap time, shopping and bedtime were big helps.....Shawn just finished the second coat of red...it looks great.....we will see in the morning if we want to go get more.....I am thinking 2 coats will probably be enough.....I have changed my mind about the Restoration Hardware window coverings I wanted.....TOO Expensive.....So I think I have found a less expensive set that look just as good.....and instead of paying $400+, the whole window covering should only be around $150.00 or soo.....much better and it will allow me to get them up sooner....which will be nice since there are no window covering or blinds in that room.....YEAH. I still have quite a few more things to get for that room, but I think we will have it completely done with leather couch and all after tax return time.....1 room down 5+ to go......Ok, Ok enough home projects for one day.....

Miss Lila is now standing all the time and moving around as much as she can...She also now knows how to get up a stair....so it looks like I will need to be moving the gate downstairs or we will need to get a new gate.....its hard cause our steps are rounded at the bottom so no matter what there will always be two steps for her to climb on.....I am sure we will figure it out....She is definitely more adventurous then the twins were.....more of a dare devil.....but on the other hand she is way more moody then the twins she goes from cold to hot in a matter of seconds....she actually throws her head back on the floor and kicks her feet and then rolls on her belly and screams into the carpet....I hope to get a video of it to show her when she gets older..........

So here is a sort of long video of Lila playing.....she is pretty cute....(I know I am biased)

Here are some recent pics.....
