Nothing Like New Paint!

I'm not sure if it has something to do with school starting, or if the painting of a room has triggered some sort of "episode" for me, but I've been on a cleaning and purging spree today.

Danny and Tristen ran to Wichita to pick up rabbit feed..long story...and while they were there, they  bought paint for Tristen's room. Monster Energy GREEN for my Monster obsessed boy.
This lead to the removal of a box full of books, a trash bag of too small-doesn't fit right-doesn't feel right-I just don't like it-clothes, and 5 pairs of  to small shoes. WHEW.

The before with holes mudded. I've always hated this color. I sent Dan to get pick out paint years ago, confidant I didn't want to deal with picking it out, and I was CERTAIN I would like whatever he got. This is what he hauled home. I call it Truck Stop Bathroom Blue.

During. See that handsome guy painting?? Its the FREAKIEST.THING.EVER. He painted the ENTIRE room in a pair of khaki shorts and a good t-shirt, never getting ANYTHING on them. That is just not normal.

Anyway, I know some of you are grimacing about the color Tristen chose, but its really fun, and well, its just HIM.

The after!

 They have plans to make a Monster "M" mural on the wall. Stay tuned for that!!

We also celebrated Miss Hope's 2nd birthday this weekend. I hadn't had much of a chance to see the girls this past few weeks. I was greeted to Hope saying my name to me for the first time. Gecky.  Baby Emily had chubbed out a lot too!!

Miss Emily is starting to be more alert..

..and the SMILES have started!! Seriously, is there anything in the world cuter? I don't think so!

Pa-Pa came to party too!

Check out  E's chubby little tummy.

We are taking this girl to college Saturday.  =(

Tea Party with the birthday girl!! We HAD to try the new princess tea set!

=) Auntie needed more tea.
Tonight finds me a little sad. My guys go back to school tomorrow.  I'm ready for a schedule, not ready for the crazy HECTIC nutso schedule.  I guess it will come if I'm ready for not soo...Let's DO this!

I like the greeen. Katrina had about the same green with neon orange. Just say needed two coats primer to cover when she moved out.
