Small upgrades... make big differences

The house is under going massive face lifts! With Sean's new job; he has been traveling a lot. Which has left me with a lot of time to work on the house. I have been walking through the house for a couple of years now wanted to make a some changes. 
First up was the front entrance. It has been very dark and gloomy. When the past owners painted the house they didn't cover anything up, so over spray was EVERYWHERE. I painted the brown and the doors. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. 

Second up was the fence! I have wanted a fence forever, but as you know fences are ridiculously expensive. It has taken a few years to be able to afford one. 

The door down the hall were never finished. I had been terrified of finishing them, however it went really well. Two coats later the doors were done! Re-hanging them was horrific without Sean, but mom and I got it done. Love the new hall.

My great Aunt gave me the hutch. It was in horrible shape. It had been white, then green, then someone had decided it should look like wood again. Why people? why? We painted it red! I am in love with it. 

The front of the house has these four windows that show into the garage. They have been a mess for years. Over the past couple month I have been working up to them. I am appalled at my self sometimes for my ability to make a project so much more complicated than it is. I got this done in under an hour.

Sometimes you just find a friend that makes you happy. Corbynn hasn't had the easiest time making friends. She struggles with peer communication and doesn't deal well when she needs to compromise. This year she found Ryan T. he has been the dream friend. I heard him comfort her numerous times over her party. He had an almost brotherly protector vibe going. It was so amazing to see her truly connect with another child. 
I couldn't have pick a better kid for her to be friends with. He is sweet, nice, and all around a good kid. He makes her silly and that girl needs some silly in her life. 

It has been so hard watching her struggle with friendships. It almost seemed like she didn't even want them. I was SO worried last year when we made it all the way through 1st grade without a friend.  I am grateful for this young man and his amazing family who has also encourage their unique friendship.

You can never go wrong with giant bubbles. These bubbles made my day a better place to be. I can't believe how HUGE they got. If you haven't played with big bubbles you have been missing out.
