I haven't posted for quite some time, it has been a busy month!! I decided the week before Thanksgiving that I wanted to paint my living room, kitchen and dining room. This meant that I would have to paint the trim and doors too! Lets just say Kurt was less than happy with me! I did the trim all by myself, and painted most of the walls, I just needed him to do the parts by the ceiling- I am not that careful! We painted most the walls Cherry Chocolate and then some of the walls tan. I just love it!! It makes my house look a lot different, the walls were a really light tanish pink color that I did not love! So that project is now finished.

Then we moved on to putting all the Christmas lights and decorations up! Gavin has been so much fun! He loves the lights- we walk outside every night to turn them on and he just loves it. We have went on a few car rides to see the lights and he oohs and aws at all of them. He thinks the tree and ornaments are also pretty fun! He has not hurt them....yet. He takes some off and walks around with them like they are toys and he is wondering why mommy put them on a tree? I can't wait for Christmas this year- he has just grown so much and his personality is so fun. He is a good boy and so mellow. My sisters wonder why I got such a good kid:)

Here are a few pictures of our tree and the new paint! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season.

I love the paint! Steve wishes I would do our painting around the house, but it seems like I am always pregnant so he always ends up with that job:)!

I love the new paint job! Isn't it amazing what a new coat of paint can do? And I love that it isn't to expensive either.
