A NEW YEAR...

A NEW LOOK!

Brett and his Dad Jed started a few home improvement projects over the weekend that are now complete! We love how they turned out.

Wainscoting in the kitchen nook:



How cute is that?!!



A shelf in the media nook:


I love the picture of the Salt Lake Temple...thanks Mom and Dad!

And I completed a few little projects of my own as well...

I finally painted my little basket/tray from D.I. (I don't have a before picture, but it used to be country blue)


and I mod podged and framed our Christmas puzzle. I can't wait to put it up next Christmas. (I wonder if Cameron is counting down.)


Even the boys got in on the action:


Nothing like a little yard work to start the year off right!

Austin, a handy man in the making:


Thanks Jed for all your help!


So now the Christmas decor is put away and our house is back to normal (a little improved I might add) and there are even a few more projects in the works. A busy start to the new year! The boys are back to school tomorrow and Brett is back to work. I guess the holidays are now officially over... but we welcome 2009! We are looking forward to another happy and healthy year.

I love your new kitchen nook. The boys did a great job with it. Plus the shelf above the TV looks great- Just wasted space before.

We brought you back a special treat from Yellowstone since you missed out on this while you were in Utah- check your mail this week!

WOW! You have really been busy. I love what you have done in the kitchen and family room. It looks awesome! It's interesting how such small changes can make such a big difference!
