All my girls have been sick this week, so since we couldn't go anywhere I thought it would be a good time to
paint this dresser.  It was this light blue color and I liked it fine, I just wanted something new.

and it had been one of my children's many canvas's

After a about a million coats of primer and a lot of painters tape.
Here is what is looks like now.

I really love it, and I think I am going to change up Chloe's room to match it.
I got the inspiration from a picture I saw here

 I am participating in the linky parties of

Easter Time

This Easter weekend was super busy, we headed to Utah since Bri had the week off, but before we left we did our apartment complexes egg hunt.

 They got SO many eggs, We have enough candy to last us till Halloween.

 We also went to another egg hunt with a city mom group,
They organized it so that each kid got 10 eggs, and of course my Aniston only picked out the pink eggs.
(I love Kenslie's face in this picture.)
 Friday night we colored our eggs.

 Then Saturday we headed over to my parents house for Easter lunch and another egg hunt, these are all the grand kids, (minus one) lined up.

 All my adorable nieces and nephews!!!
(Do you like the jack o lantern Easter baskets?)

And Saturday night I brought one of my very favorite family traditions to my family.
Growing up my mom would put our hair into sponge curlers for church the next day and then we would sit and watch The Ten Commandments, while having root beer floats.

 The root beer floats were a big hit, the curlers not so much, they didn't make it through the night.
Oh well, it was still one of my favorite memories as a kid and now as a mom.
In the morning the Easter bunny hid their baskets, they found them pretty quick.

Even Dad got a basket!

I  realized we never got a picture of the girls in their Easter dresses. I will have to get one this Sunday.
We did a ton of other things, but that will have to wait till another post.
Too many pictures and not enough time to post them all. :)

This weekend was pretty good, I got something done that I have wanted to do for awhile.
This room has driven me crazy since we moved in.
Its our laundry room, pantry, pretty much our catch all room.

BEWARE!!! It was a disaster!!

Now I am much happier with this room.

And Chloe made this face,
 even though she wasn't feeling so good.
Love this girl!!

Caution: Picture Overload

We just got back from our Disney trip and it was amazing!
Nothing went wrong, the girls were perfect and the weather was
 the TOTAL opposite of what we have now at home.

Waiting in line to get into Disneyland

Chloe just saw "Her Fish!" aka Ariel on Its a small world
Us eating lunch and my cute girls with their sunglasses on

In the Princess fantasy faire Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Cinderella
come out and do a show and teach all the little girls how to dance like a princess.
My girls were in shock, as you can see.

And of course we had to ride the tea cups!

Aniston and her FAVORITE princess

This is what they did every morning while we waited for our shuttle at the hotel.
Hide and Seek

And run around in circles.

Then we went over to California Adventure and met
Minnie Mouse!

This was Aniston during all the fireworks and During World of Color and Fantasmic
and during lunch cause we sat under the monorail tracks.

In the middle of the day we all headed back to the hotel and
crashed for a few hours.
The twins were so tired they fell asleep like this.

We got in an hour earlier one morning and we are waiting to get into the princess fantasy faire.
They all look so cute in their princess dresses.

 We happened to be the first in line that morning to meet the princesses and when they were about to let us in the line. Belle comes out and takes my girls hands and walks them through the whole line and onto the little alcove where you visit the princess. Needless to say that was my girls favorite part of the whole trip!

Belle is one of Kenslies favorites so she was so excited to get a hug from her.

One of the Disney photographers wanted them to do a thumbs up and
my cute Chloe did a fingers up.

And then Chloe met "Her Fish" in real life.

Because I am so awesome or really stupid I waited in line (while daddy took them on other rides) for an hour so the girls could meet Rapunzel.
She was Anistons other favorite.
It was 90 degrees the whole time we were there, so they all had red cheeks.

And of course we had to see this guy!

And this is just a cute picture.

That was our trip and we had a blast!
Hope I didn't bore you to death...
