Paint, Paint and More Paint

Well, the Captain and I(soon to be Major and I come the 7th of January) have been painting in the soon to be new home of ours for the past two days. We are really getting a lot done and it is looking nice and fresh. We had already painted the kids rooms and last night we finished our master bedroom. It looks really nice, we painted it a color called pale daffodil, it is a real pretty yellow. We even started painting the living room down stairs last night as well. It is a color called tawny birch, it is a real pretty tan color. I managed to get all the trim done and the entry way, today we will walk over and hopefully finish the room. Next on the list will be the kids bathroom. We picked up a real pretty blue color that was in the clearance bin for $5.00, can't beat that! After the kids bathroom we will probably venture upstairs and paint the landing up the stairs and the office upstairs. It really feels rewarding working in the house, especially since we know that it will be ours on the 29th! We are still praying that we will be signing the papers then!

This past week has been very busy! It all started last Tuesday and we had something everyday/evening til this past Sunday! It is nice to finally have a break and to have no commitments except family! The only thing we had going on this week was the dental cleanings for the kids and that went well, no cavities for either and great reports! Yesterday the Princess saw the Neurologist, and her EEG was normal, next step is to get an MRI. We go next week to set that up. This morning she had another blackout episode, she has been in the bed since. She will be there all day, usually when she gets like this that is where she stays until the next day. I really think that she is fine, I just think that this is something that she is going to have to endure and live with.

So glad that all of our Christmas shopping is done! There is NO way that you would catch me out shopping now!! Although I do need to run to the grocery store, but I will do this in our town, it want be as hectic here. The Princess cooked dinner last night all by herself while we were over at the new house painting. We were so proud of her. Homemade spaghetti and meatballs and a delicious tossed salad......yummy! Tonight the Bookworm wants to cook and he wants to cook homemade pizza.....we can't wait, we are sure that it is going to be just as tastey!

Tomorrow we will make our sugar cookies and gingerbread houses and chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter balls rolled in cashews. We do this every year and we always bake on Christmas Eve Eve. I love baking with the kids! We'll probably sit and watch Christmas movies all day as well.

So, if you don't have to go out and brave the crowds, don't! Take time to relax and stay at home and enjoy the simplicity of doing nothing. Wrap up in a blanket and read or watch Christmas movies while sipping hot chocolate and eating popcorn!
