Up to our ears

Right before we left for Australia, we got an itch to do some house projects.  Mostly things that would make some of our rooms more functional.  We have a formal living and dining room, which get used maybe twice a year.  The Christmas tree resides in the formal living room during the holidays, and other than that, it's not ever used.  The landing in the upstairs is also a no man's land.  It's toy overflow, even though the playroom is right off of it.  Eventually it will be where a pool table, or fuzeball table or something goes.  We don't need to put a TV, because the media room is also right off of it.  So we were trying to think of ways to make it more  functional, and look like it was a finished room.  In comes pinterest, and Ikea.  The weekend before we left for Australia, we made a trip to Ikea where we purchased several bookcases, with plans to make them look like built ins.  A month later, we have no only added to our list of projects, but we have yet to finish the ones we started:/  We have purchased a swing set/play set, that I was lucky enough to talk Adam out of putting together himself, I have ordered and started to update the boys picture wall(The last picture of Dylan was one when he turned one, and Graham was 3 months in his last one). We have also started picking out a wall color, which if you know us, is a LONG process.  Just like the picking out

of fabric for pillow's and bench seat on the landing.  We are hoping that we get a good amount done this weekend, with at least one of them.  The pillow's are being worked on by a friend now, so hopefully we will be able to get these crossed off the list.  I hate having Dylan and Adam's tools laying around the house all the time!:)

Needless to say, we are up to our ears in projects.
