Three days out...

I'm on the mend!! It really wasn't a bad surgery, and other than a little soreness I'm pretty much good. No pain meds since night before last! Woohoo!

Well, THAT was an unexpected twist in my week.

So moving on-my sister has been in town from Phoenix this last week and she painted and "papered" my house yesterday. Here are some before and after shots: Ok, actually this is the only "before" shot I remembered to take.
This little spot has sort of been a thorn in my side since we bought this house. The old lady that lived here had this railing frame made when it was built. She had a bunch of little country-ish things hanging inside the "frame". Yesterday we decided to faux it and make it look like I wanted it there. I think it looks so much better!!
And this little nich, as well as the "door frame" were done with paper. It's torn, painted paper, my favorite current look. You can check out the colors available here. Shannon, my sister, is fabulous with it and it looks gorgeous! Thanks, Shannon!

Here are some pics from Carter's "after baptism get-together":

Waiting his turn....
Building a zoo-a making a mess?
Babies in the game closet. Will I always call them the babies?

Fun times with family.
