Spring, Spring, Spring!!!!

Can I just say that we love Spring and are so happy that the weather appears to be getting warmer. Who knows tomorrow it could snow, but for today we are enjoying the sunshine.

Debuting Kaitlyn's new Room

So I hope you have all been anxiously awaiting these pictures. These are all of the old playroom redone to be Kaitlyn's new bedroom. We have had this room finished for awhile, but like usual it has taken me a couple of weeks to post the evidence.
The Saturday we finished her room it was really late and I thought for sure that Kaitlyn wouldn't want to sleep downstairs until the next day. Boy you think I would know my daughter better by now. Of course the instant the paint was dry and the beeboard on the wall, Kaitlyn tells her dad "okay will you go and get my bed now?" Needless to say we moved her stuff down and she was more than a little excited to sleep in her own room. I on the other hand worried about her being downstairs all by herself all night, she could have cared less. The best part about Kaitlyn having her own room is that she has taken such responiblity of her room and things. I told her if she wanted to be a big girl on her own downstairs that she had to act like one by making her bed, getting dressed and keeping her room clean. If I had known just how well that little talk was going to work we would have moved her down a long time ago. She is AWESOME at all of the above and I never have to ask her twice. I love it when things work out that way. Anyways here are the pictures of the way cute room that I was worried about.

This is the wall perpendicular with her bed.
This is the view walking into her room from the stairs.

This wall and the bookshelf walls were paneling and I love how the stripes worked out. They help to break up the pink.

General Conference Weekend

Kaitlyn and Ethan both love the horses and are not at all afraid to jump right up on them.
Grandpa and Kelly's horses were definatly a hit this weekend.

Thad's dad, Grandpa Crump, had the best idea to rent a horse areana for the afternoon and spend time with the horses. This was how we spent the time in between conferences on general conference weekend. And wouldn't you know it, my first and biggest child (Thad) was the hardest one to get off the horse. ;) We all had a blast.
