Projects and Pretties
The painting, at last, is finding it's way up the stairs. When we moved into this house almost 5 years ago it was all one color, builder paint. With the downstairs paint finished, I decided to tackle the hall upstairs and then made a photo wall project. That has been a LONG time coming so I am pretty proud that it is done! I am the designated painter in the house ever since Greg and I painted a bathroom together in our old house. It was a very small bathroom and Greg got tired of me pointing out all of the drips and suggesting he might need to get his vision re-checked ;) So I guess I am a little OCD with paint.
On another subject, this is the first year that I got a homemade corsage for Mother's Day. Parker made it at school and I think it is the sweetest. This is also the first year that we have a child old enough to go up on the stage and sing with the Primary for Mother's Day. Not only did Parker not sing, but we saw the back of his head for almost an entire song and toward the end of that song, watched him arguing with the child standing behind him. "Happy Mother's Day" said Greg with humor as I wondered if I would make things worse if I went on stage and grabbed him. Luckily, before I could decide it was over and Parker came back to the bench and told me he had "stage fright." I think I had stage fright as well. ;) We'll try again next year!
