Easter 2014

Trying to get pics of my crew is TOUGH!  
There is either a jokester in the crowd...
 Or someone gets mad...
 or someone keeps trying to walk off (that would be Tyler we kept having to bring back)...
 I made my 2 younger girls' dresses.  I especially loved Noels!
 Tyler would only somewhat cooperate if we let him play with the cat toy! He is one strong willed kiddo, but we'll keep him! :)

Our Family!

I thought we would try and take some pics before Austin left for his mission and this is what we ended up with...

 These pics were hilarious because it was the middle of the day and the sun was shining down on them...not the best idea but it made for a good laugh!

Bringing Austin to the Temple

Words cannot describe the feelings in my soul the day we brought our oldest son through the temple. 
 It was absolutely amazing.  I am so grateful for the blessings that Heavenly Father 
continues to pour out upon our family!

 Horrible picture of me because it was windy...but whatever!!! It was an amazing day!

My closet organization reveal!!

I really wish I had a before pic. but I don't.  I took everything out of the closet and then painted it.  It was a clean slate!  I bought bins at the dollar store and used a few I already had on hand.  I labeled all the bins with chalkboard labels that I cut on my Silhouette.  I just have to label them still.  

 These metal hook thingys I found at the dollar store they were perfect to hang jewelry, belts and hats on!

 I made the chandelier from wax paper...tutorials are on pinterest on how to do it! I love how it turned out!!!

I am loving my organized closet and it has been 5 months since I organized it and it is still organized!

Boy or Girl???

This is how we did our gender reveal...
 We took a vote and it was pretty much down the middle!

 ...and it's a boy!! (of course we already knew this since baby boy is here)
