Feels like a whole new house!

So way too much has happened for me to write it all down. I'm just going to talk about what is going on in the Brown household today. PAINTING!!!! Yeah! I am actually really excited about it. The man is doing all the painting, thank goodness. I just get to sit back and watch him turn my dull boring house into a beautiful palate of color! The front room and kitchen are going to be an olive green to tie into my couches and we are painting the kids bathroom yellow. Such a happy color! I can't wait to see it all finished, its going to look so much better than it does now. The man has a good friend who is an interior decorator. She does jobs sometimes for the company he works for and she came over to consult with us and help us pick the colors. It was so cool! She really gave a lot of good suggestions and I felt so special to have a professional come to my house! Although I took the entire day before she came over and scrubbed down my house. I seriously did not stop for one second. ( except to take Seth to school and pick him up!) This place has never been so clean. I told The Man that I was not moving a muscle for the next week, I was pooped. But it felt great!

The kids are doing great as well. Just a minute ago, while I was typing they were in the kitchen and The Boy was making some kind of funky noise that had Little Girl in a fit of laughter. I love to hear them laughing and playing. It makes me smile and my heart feels all mushy and warm! We have just started implementing personal prayer with the kids and they love it! Little Girl wanted to do it all by herself last night, without any help, and it was so funny! She said thank you for everything that she could see around her, including her blue blanket. The Boy does the same thing! I couldn't help but laugh, so irreverent I know! Its so sweet.

The Boy is insisting on helping his dad paint, so I have to go and find some ratty clothes for him and supervise the progress! I'll take pics if I can!


  1. That's awesome that you guys are painting. See I hate painting and there are too many other thing Reed NEEDS to do so its not even on the list yet. I LOVE hearing Tyler pray. He'll tell me in the morning that he woke up or something and felt whatever emotion so he prayed and felt better. We've practiced ALOT but to see it come out in his every day life is so cool! Have fun! Oh and I'm just a little jealous you got to have a professional come to your house!

  2. Yahoo!! That is wonderful! I love to paint, but I really love when it is all over. Your home is going to be BEAUTIFUL!
