Toyroom update

Ok I realized I never put up my finished toy room pic. So here is a Before pic...

And an After pic:

I moved the rug that was in Brett's room down to the playroom to give the boys something to sit on while playing. I am loving the fact that MOST of their toys are downstairs in one area and are somewhat organized. Now keeping it that way will be the difficult part.

Happy Birthday John!!!

Yesterday was JOhn's 31st birthday. We were able to spend the day together. just the two of us thanks to our great friends here. The day started out with breakfast at one of our favorite places on the island, Cinnamons. You can't go wrong with red velvet pancakes.. they are out of this world amazing!!!! John ordered the tall stack of buttermilk pancakes. They were HUGE!!!!! Each pancake was probably at least an inch thick and there were four of them!!! See pick below. We then headed to Maunawili Falls to do some hiking. Keep in mind that we were thinking this hike would take like 45 min to get to the top and about 30 to get back down. WRONG!!!!! It took like 2 hours to get to the top. There was sooooooo much mud and roots the whole way.. and the steps killed!!! It was so much fun though and so pretty. I so enjoyed doing that with my hubby. We will definately be hiking more together. The falls were really pretty but I think the best part was the hike itself. We then came home... saw our baby boys for a bit and then left to go to Yardhouse to eat. That place is so yummy!! We ended the night with watching Warrior. Awesome movie! I cried! All in all I think my hubby had a good birthday! Here are some pics of our day!

A Work in Progress

After diving in head first to the mess that was my house I soon realized that it would be better to devote today to the upstairs. I just now finished dusting, vaccuming( which included crevicing). So here are some before and after pics of upstairs. I did not get to the closet and I still need to organize the cabinets in the bathrooms, but all in all I think I did pretty darn good today!







Starting New

Today I am going to try to totally overhaul my house..( try being the key word there) I have been in the process of fall cleaning my house. In doing this I have created a mess. I have started big projects and have had to stop them in the middle of things. Children have a way of making that happen. lol So I am hoping I can get rid of all the clutter in my house ( a girl can dream). The bathrooms need to be cleaned really well, the laundry needs to be done AND PUT AWAY! That area is where I am always lacking.. My husband refers to it as Mt. Saint Patience. LOL I want all the sheets changed and new ones put on. I am hoping to do most of this while Austin is at Tiny Tots this morning. Hopefully, this will work out! Sorry this is a random post but felt like sharing ... haha Here are the before shots... i will post the after shots later this evening.

Are you ready for some football?!

Brett has now entered the world of flag football. Last Saturday was his first practice and he enjoyed every minute of it. John, Austin, and I were there cheering him on. He would look over at us and wave. He also told JOhn.. "Dad, I am really good at this.. this is easy for me!" He is a modest child.. yes he is! The coaches kept cracking up at his very infectious laugh. Brett, can always find the humor in any situation. When he laughs it is impossible not to laugh right along with him. I am sure this football season will be loads of fun for all involved. Our baby boy sure does make us proud!
