Summary of the last few weeks (and an actual pic of the scar)

The last few weeks have been crazy busy and fun, so I thought I would throw in a few pictures in no particular order. (Including a few, but not by any means all) fun presents we are enjoying.

*Please note my favorite camera (my Lumix) is now in the graveyard and I am so sad. So bear with my pictures from now on.

Ryan's sister and her family gave the kids a gift certificate to a pottery studio and they LOVED that gift so much, they eat from their bowls any chance they get.

I found a bunch of cabinets and a countertop on Craigslist and paid someone to install them one day while Ryan was at work. I'm just kind of like that. SURPRISE!

Ainsley got an Air Hockey table for Christmas. Fun for the whole neighborhood!

Today Brandon and Ainsley were home sick. Ainsley and I kept busy making this cute door hanger for Valentines. It turned out DARLING! We got the tutorial for the balls from Heather Bailey and just tied them to an empty picture frame.

Do you like my new kitchen appliances I got for Christmas? There is a dishwasher, too!

Brandon LOVED his new wolf hat het got from Aunt Sally

Alexa was equally thrilled to receive this pillow pet from her grandparents.

And a "FUN" shot of the healing scar for those of you wondering. :)

First I have to say that I love the blue wall color and new cabinets. Very pretty. I also love the gifts your children got for Christmas. Especially the pottery certificate.(Great idea) I'm glad you got to have new appliances. They look nice! Lastly I'm sorry about Alexa's scar. She's such a trooper! It was fun to see all your pictures!

Oh goodness, I was wondering if we'd ever get a pic of the scar... It really looks like it's healing well--you know, since I'm such an expert and all. Poor girl. I honestly can't believe it didn't spread to her hair or anything.

On to Christmas--LOVE the appliances! Are you so glad to be rid of that other fridge? LOL Looks like you guys had a good holiday!

Glad you had a great Christmas. Fun to see pics of your family. Have you tried vitamin E on the scar? My husband's family has used it for burns. Just stick a pin through the capsule and squeeze out the vitamin E liquid. It should be done several times a day. I'm so sorry that it happened and sounds like you all have been very brave!

LOVE the cabinets! I haven't looked on Craigslist for that stuff but no wonder you're making all that cute stuff.
