I see it has been months since updated. We’ve been busy with lots of home improvement projects, and we are still have lots more to work on. I started a separate DIY blog House of Carr’s that will cover the adventures and mis-adventures we are having DIY’ing and decorating our home plus some crafty and other domestic things.
While I was building that website, I also decided to move my original blog over to a self-hosted website and rename it Life Of Carr’s here I will be talking about life in our little corner of the world.
So how about a speed catch up of 2012, before I resume a more regular posting schedule.
Nicholas turned 5 and had a Super Mario themed birthday party where he invited his pre-school friends and they made pizza’s at a local bakery. The kids all loved it!
Jackson was star of the week at school and Nicholas helped him with his poster.
Mike and I took advantage of parent’s night out and left the kids at the pre-school while we enjoyed an evening out.
We had an awesome Superbowl celebration with friends and lots of yummy food.
Nicholas loves to watch Super Mario videos on YouTube and then he teaches Mike how to play. Sometimes it doesn’t go so well.
We started our home improvement projects by ripping out the baseboards in the rooms that were getting new flooring.
The boys jumped for joy over their Valentine’s gift…a trampoline.
Before the new flooring went in we started painting the family room and kitchen. Our one coat paint took a coat of primer and 2 coats of paint. And there are still a few areas, I think that could use another.
And finally it was flooring week.
Since all the main areas were a mess with the flooring, everything was moved out and the boys spent most of the days crammed in our bedroom.
We took a break from projects to enjoy an Angel’s spring training game. It was a perfect day for a game.
I painted the office and Mike took the boys to the Ostrich Festival with some friends. It was a super hot March day.
We celebrated Mike’s birthday, the day after. His birthday we worked all day and late into the night to put the office back together after the flooring and painting was done.
Mike learned how to paint (yippee for me). My hand was hurting from onset of carpal tunnel and it was definitely nice to get some help.
We still found time for some fun and silliness.
Hurricane Jackson swept through Nicholas’s room.
We colored Easter eggs, Nicholas decided he didn’t want to smell vinegar, so he opted out…more for Jackson.
We spent Easter in California with Grandpa & Grandma Johnson
The boys like to destroy our bed on a regular basis.
I was able to spend a fun girls weekend with good friends at the Scrapbook Convention in Mesa
The past few weekends have been spent sewing drapery panels.
We celebrated Cinco de Mayo with watermelon margaritas (YUM) and a great night with friends.
We went to a wedding.
We made a gifts for teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week (how I made these is posted here).
Sometimes we take naps and watch TV.
And today we read lots of books.
That’s plenty for today. We’ll see if I can get back to a regular posting schedule. Have a good week!
