Take that Pier 1!

Pier 1 has this painting for sale and I really liked it. I thought it would be perfect in the dining room. It was on sale for $400! Not to be cheap, but I can think of a lot of things to buy for $400 and not one of hem involves a painting from Pier 1.
So with a 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby, some acrylic paint I already own, and a free Sunday afternoon, I painted my own stupid tree with a green border! I also added some gold to my paint so the tree would shimmer a bit.

I also painted the upstairs bathroom. Since it is orange, it makes me very happy!
I'm working on the boys room now, hoping to have it done before Thanksgiving!

Cute pics of Grayson

He's about out of 0-3 months clothes. He is growing so much!
He does this a lot, he likes his hands.
I love the cute doggie shoes!

Aiden's First Train Track

Built all by himself, he was so proud!
Since I build about 4 of them a day, I'm pretty happy he can do it by himself.

I forgot about the pumpkins...

The boys were very excited about carving pumpkins, until they opened them up and realized they had to clean all the gunk guess who ended up doing all three pumpkins?

Yep, Me! (Am I brave or stupid to post a picture of myself without makeup???)

Here's Damon working on his...

Xavier, working on his...
But don't be fooled by the photos, I cleaned all those babies all by myself! The boys just got to do the fun part of carving and eating the pumpkin seeds after I roasted them the next day.

Here's Aiden with his ghost...he's one heck of a carver huh?

And I totally forgot to get pictures of Damon and Xavier with their creations. I also forgot to ever put candles in them to light them at night...great mommy moment!
