Painted Chevron Wall

I needed something fun and different for the kids bath and went with the ever popular Chevron wall. I picked up an "oops" can of paint for the first go round but the color didn't work so well. Not to mention the pattern turned our awful. This is step 1 of many to update and reno this bath. I will post the inspiration board soon.
First Attempt- it looked more like bad check marks

Easy Photo Canvas

I tried several different Pinterest tutorials and ideas but eventually went with my own. I had staples enlarge several photos and then just wrapped them around a canvas and taped the back. Each canvas with the photo was around 7.00.

More sick...

This week was rather exciting. Monday was Becca's birthday and we celebrated in style by hitting up the Hands on Children's Museum as it was 50 out side and to cold for the Zoo. Tuesday was CBS and a much needed haircut for Robert with Wednesday being the big day! Wednesday I took the kids to see Robert's school next year. It was rather exciting and I think went well. Robert met his teacher and didn't hold back in conversation. He made it known he wanted a train table in his classroom. He also was very concerned and mentioned it to the teacher that we didn't discuss how to clean up the toys and where to put them away (random). That night we also went to see Veggie Tales Live and it was so great! And then for Thursday...

I thought several months of salmonella would cure us of sickness in 2013. I was wrong. Robert came in shaking Thursday at 6am from fever. I had him at the Dr. later that morning for two ear infections and a breathing treatment. We hit up Publix after and I threw as many items as I could in my cart bracing for the natives to go restless for lunch. The bakery came through with cookies, the deli samples of cheese and lunch meat helped but 10 minutes in Robert stated in his sickly voice that he had in fact used the restroom. It was payback for the two Gatorade's I made him drink. We raced out of there for home. I had everyone cleaned up and napping in the hour. Robby did the Publix drive by on the way home (left before the prescriptions were filled) and we braced for Friday. We missed a birthday party (Happy birthday Marley!) and a play date but as sad as we were to miss I can't say we would have been great guests. By Friday Emma had the cough and the fever and by Sunday Robert had the stomach bug. It's no sleep and lots of coffee around these parts:)

Here are some photos from January in times of much better health:

This is a dance move evidently
