Petting Zoo

We went to the Fraser Coast Show on Thursday with some of the school classes. All of the kids loved the petting zoo. It took Nate a little while to like feeding the animals. But then he got this great look on his face when he realized they would eat out of the cup. I have a cute video that captures it but it's a bit long. Anyway, once Nathan got over his little fear of the animals he started chasing the chickens. =)

peas and corn

So far I have snow peas (along the fence) and corn growing in my garden. I have seeds for lettuce and tomato but just haven't gotten around to planting them yet. The rain is making the corn do really well. Hope they get nice and big and have lots of corn to eat. =)

of course I had to show you some flowers too. I planted pansies in my little wooden planter. And Emma has some petunias that she bought with her own birthday money. The rain is helping them grow well too. =)

more vinyl

I put up some vinyl in the bathroom. Didn't wait quite two weeks and some paint peeled off but it seemed a little loose anyway. Oh well, the girls made sure to show Josh as soon as he came home. the missing paint, not the vinyl. =)

vinyl crazy

Josh got a gift certificate for some vinyl wall art for his birthday. It came today and I immediately put some of it up. We also got a couple for Christmas and one to put in the school room. And a welcome sign as a thank you for ordering. I haven't done anything with them yet. =)

First I put flowers in the girls' rooms. It's hard to see the light pink against the wall colour in the pictures but they are nice and bright in real life. Catie put hers over the window by her bed, Emma wanted hers to be vertical by her bed and Beka put hers at the head of her bed.

I put this one up above the window over the sink in the kitchen. I love the change but I'll have to get used to not having a clock up there. And we'll just pretend that the reason it looks crooked is because of the camera. =)These inspired me to finally pull out the vinyl I bought in America and put it on the pantry door. It's so cute. and much better than sitting in the linen cupboard. I promise that it actually does look straight in real life. =)

Laundry Room

I bought these stickers in America over Christmas. I finally got to put them up. I think they look cute and match the washboard and curtains Mom gave me ages ago. I bought two packages and didn't even use a whole one. guess I'll have to find something to do with the other ones.

We finished painting!! Saturday Josh and I painted the girls' toilet and bathroom and Monday Josh painted the laundry room. Doesn't it look great? Now to wait the 2 weeks before I can put up the vinyl I have for the girls' bathroom. It's gonna look cute!

Hanging out with Dad

Beka had moved a chair near to Josh so he could check out why her foot was hurting. After she went to bed, Nate decided to hang out with Daddy. So he moved some of his tractor over to the desk and sat next to Josh for about half an hour. =)
