What we do when we are snowed in...

The kids are home from school for yet another two days. No school through Thursday this week. Because of the crazy snow storms. Trevor and I have been working on his Valentine's for his big party at school, which was supposed to be tomorrow. But now it's not until Tuesday. *sigh* Anyways, I'll post pics of that when we are done.

Trevor has been busy coloring a lot during his days home. Yesterday he did a portrait of his new best buddy, "Elephie" [ella-fee]. I thought it was super fabulous and had to show it off!
Nick, who is also home all week with the base being closed, (Bummer, huh?) has been able to do some 'fun' things in his itty bitty garage. Here is a sneak peak of what he's working on now:
The last couple weeks we were working on refinishing the old bedroom set of Nick's that we brought back from his parents before coming to Virginia. We are putting it in McKenzie's room. Here is what it looked like before...

And this is what her bed and bedside table look now! We were going to do a black stain, but decided last minute to just paint it black. I love how it turned out. Now her bed just needs her new comforter set. It's on backorder until the end of February! (Note the horse posters she is hanging up from her horse magazine!? A christmas subscription from Jim and Julie!) She loves them!Also, I painted an old light blue lamp I got at a yard sale for $0.50.... covered the lampshade with some fuzzy zebra paper.... now all it needs is a little fringe around the bottom to be complete! We still have the dresser to paint. Here is my little Addison, who has been up the last two nights with a bit of the stomach flu. She is fine during the day, but when evening comes, she is one sick little puppy. But she's all smiles today!

Love the lamp! I'm thinking, instead of fringe, maybe some glass crystals or beads--black or silver or even a bright color, like hot pink? But you're the crafty one, so whatever you decide will look awesome, I'm sure!

McKenzie has a super cool room. Love the black furniture. Can't wait to hear how much MORE snow you got!

Can I rent you and Nick out to come work at my house? I'm impressed!
