A few days ago I decided to rearrage my living room. I will admit it did not take to long but I was draging my feet. I wasn't sure were to put things and in the end only moved a few things around. It does feel nice to freshen things up!

So here are the before pictures.

{remember I started moving things around before I decided to take the pic.}

                                            BEFORE PICS.

                      AFTER PICS

I'm liking the small change to my living room. The girls now have better access to their doll house and have been playing with it non stop since I moved it to its new spot!

Today up here in the Pacific Northwest we finally got a bit of snow last night. There is a winter storm advisory until 10am Thursday (tomorrow). We woke up to a few inches of the white stuff on the ground this morning, but the roads were clear.

So it was school and work on a normal schedule. :(

The cool air has made my Litttles that stay home with me hibernate just a bit longer than usual this morning!
{giving me time to blog}
 My kiddos are now stirring about,wanting me help them get ready to go out and play in the snow.

This is what the living room can look like when the girls are getting their shoes on! :)

Well my momma duties are calling me.
I  mean to say, I want to go love on my kiddos~
I love being a mother.......its not a duty!
My today will filled with doing many things together WITH my kiddos, not just FOR them.....
playing in the snow {and taking pictures}
                                                               making pancakes
                                           sipping hot cocoa and eating Girls Scout cookies
                               snuggling in front of the fire place and reading many stories
               letting the girls take a hot bubble bath and smelling their clean blow dried hair
                               are just a few things I want to do with my kiddos today!

How about you?
What do you want to do with your kiddos today?

WOW the snow is really coming down.....
got to go.......the cocoa is ready!
I will post some pic's tomorrow of our snowy day!

See ya then~

Peace and Love,

Major projects {one baby step at a time}

Here at the Bluebird Cottage I have pretty much started this blog and never posted much here. Well I'm trying to change that. I have buckets of paint and a new vision for my home. {or should I say...I finally have the motivation to "get it done".}

These are a few of the colors we got for the job!
 The first project I want to complete by Sunday is paint all my wooden chairs (4)......each a differnt bright color! Noah just painted one just now in the backyard! I need to check the thrift store for a few more wooden chairs so I can swap out my stacking resin patio chairs.

Noah picked Pumpkin Orange for his chair!

I will be posting every few days here at this blog.
 I hope if there are any readers out there stop in and say hi!

Peace and Love,

There is a councilor at my son's JR HIGH that totally changes her office every year! She does a extreme makeover......everything is different.

All new paint,lighting,furniture. She shops all year for the things that she will use!

One year the theme was African (sort of ZEN) with a fountain wall! Another was Black and Red formal with mirrors and silver. Last year was Pink and Black Hollywood glitz with feathers.
This year is Shabby Chic! I love this one! I took the pictures with her permission. {But she is ducking out of the photo.}

This gal is so creative!
