We are very quickly out growing this house, or maybe we have way to much junk! Either way we have no where to put things anymore.
We have been considering making one of these shelves in our garage for a while but just never got around to it.
I guess Chris finally got sick of his messy garage because one day he surprised me when he came home with the lumber and supplies. He made the shelves in just a few hours and then yesterday his brother Patrick came over to help him put them up.

I didn't take any before pictures so just picture a big mess!

Half way done

We told Myla this was her new bed. She got this really worried look and started to cry it was too funny :)

The finished product

We love it and I wish we would have done it sooner!
( Oh and Chris got me one of those hanging tennis ball things so I would stop smashing into everything)

I just had to put this picture in. The girls just love their Daddy so much!

Happy St. Patricks Day


Ava had her second birthday a couple of days ago. She got spoiled rotten and she loved every minute of it!

We started the day off early with opening presents. (Don't you love the bed head) Ava wanted a new bike. We were just going to pass down Myla's old tricycle to her, but Mommy may have accidentally ran over it last fall! (Don't worry the bike was not occupied at the time)

Myla had a very hard day and did not quite understand why she didn't get a new bike too.
After presents we went to the park next to our house to play and fly the girls new kite.

Ava trying out her new bike after she wrestled it away from Myla.

My Mom made the girls the most adorable wonder capes. They love them so much and won't take them off!!! Wonder capes do have one down side though the girls constantly ask for you to fly them around the house. They may not look very heavy, but after a few laps around the house your arms really start to feel the burn.

Happy Birthday Ava!!!!! We love you so very much! We are so happy we get to have you and your spunky little personality in our family :)
