All Cleaned Up

YAY! It's now Celebration Station instead of Procrastination Station. I did it. The carpets are now clean! I can't believe the transformation. I'm sorry now that I didn't take any before pictures of how bad it was. The gentleman who cleaned our carpets did a great job and got out a lot of spots that I thought would never come out. The only problem is now I am paranoid and I do not want to get this carpet like it was. So I am keeping on top of the girls and making sure they keep all stain related items at the table. I have a feeling though that my biggest mess maker is not any of the females that live in this house. So I'll be keeping a closer eye on him as well. LOL

I just love that feeling of accomplishment and the free feeling as if a burden has been lifted. The house even looks cleaner with a clean carpet. I am not going to put down my area rugs until tomorrow morning just to make sure it all dries good. It was raining here today so the air is very damp. Not great for trying to dry your carpets.

Because of this I spent the day out today. I am ready to fall over though. I am definitely going to bed early tonight. Have a great night everyone.

Finished Projects

I finally finished my first project in crocheting. I made a poncho for my 3 year old and she loves it. She wears it whenever she goes out. It was really easy to make it took me awhile just because I put off finishing it. I may go ahead and make one for my 1 year old as well.

With the left over yarn I made a hat for my new little one. It was also very easy to make however it took me a few tries to get the round and size just right. One of the ladies in my church wants one for herself. So I may try and make one for her because she has been such a great friend.

Family Time with the Elephant Seals

Mondays are our family days so we decided to take the girls to see the Elephant Seals. We had a lot of fun. The drive was beautiful up the coast and the girls were great on the trip. According to the Friends of the Elephant Seal website the beach was full of female and young juvenile seals. Of course as I was running out the door, I forgot my camera so I got no pictures of the girls and the seals. The pictures above as you can tell by the datestamp are pictures I took when my husband and I took a drive on Hwy 1. There were not as many elephant seals as there were on Monday. My 1 year old was having a blast copying their sounds and my 3 year old kept wanting to go and play on the beach. I love taking trips to different places with my family. I wonder where we will go next Monday.
