After a week of beautiful spring weather, we got snowed in this weekend!  Yesterday we did nothing but vegetate all day, but today I got motivated to accomplish all sorts of little things that I’d been thinking about for a while!!  So here’s my list of checkmarks!

First off, it was a pajama day for everyone!  Here Serenity and I are snuggling in front of the mountain of laundry, some of which had been there for half the week.  It’s all folded and put away, one checkmark!

I had been wanting to change the stuff in my collage frame, and I saw this cute idea online to put your child’s onesie in a frame with a pic and a letter, or shoes and a footprint.  So I decided to display her little green dress and her red shoes, two of my very favorite of Serenity’s wardrobe items from the first year.  Luckily, I’d printed a bunch of random pictures just to have hard copies of some of my favorites, so I had a cute picture to go in there too!!

That was soo exciting, I decided it was time to finally hang the beautiful scrapbook page frame Abbey gave me.  At the last wii/crop I made this page to go in it.  Isn’t it cute in the office!

I made some scrapbook pages specifically to go in the scrapbook frame Dad and I built, so I could finally get all of Serenity’s baby book together and in one finished book.  She actually likes to look at these sometimes now so I wanted the book to be bound properly. =)

I made this banner and two flags to decorate Serenity’s castle at Dad’s house (last night actually).

Oh, and in addition to this, I made curry soup for dinner and blueberry pancakes for breakfast.  The pancakes have letters spelled out in blueberries.  Serenity thought this was wonderful… but she just pulled all the blueberries out so she could “eat a c!  eat a w!”  Then we refilled them with more berries.  =)  So maybe it was good practice for forming letters… tasty at any rate =)

I made a place to hang up Serenity’s artwork.  I think eventually I’ll paint or do something fun with the clothespins, but this is just stuff I had on hand to work with =)  This is the wall you see as you come in the door.

The big accomplishment just now got finished… I finally covered all the brown pillows on our “couch” in the living room.  We’re using this mattress (and eventually hopefully a second one) as a couch/guest bed.  The pillows are actually heavy floor pillows that were covered in a nice dark brown fabric, but Eric has issues with brown and blue together, and I think this looks better with the fabric covered pillows.

Here's a pic of the couch before the new pillowcases... and this is Serenity, who has fallen asleep with no prompting in a place other than her bed or a person for the first time.

Oh!  And I scotch-guarded the “couch” too!

What a good day =)  None of these things took that long (with the exception of putting the stupid zippers in the pillows) but I’d been just thinking about doing them for so long it felt good to take action!!!IMG_8980
