Home Decor

Kyle's work is remodeling and gave us this shelf for free. I am the worst home decorator and it stresses me out to think about redecorating. Because we live in a small apartment we were limited on where we could put this large shelf but it turned out ok.
We bought live plants for the first time and are really excited. We'll see how long I can keep them alive. One is an Orchid plant and the other is Bamboo. If anyone is talented in the home decor department and would like to come help me out, that would be greatly appreciated. :)

P.S. Family picture #1 is being inserted soon to replace the photo of Kyle and I above. Also, we couldn't decide so we are having a nice collage made of several of the pictures. It will be like a 12x19 and go on top of our entertainment center. Thanks to everyone for voting!

Family Pictures

We finally got family pictures with Trey for our living room. We were so excited about taking these pictures. My visiting teaching companion is an amazing photographer and her and her husband are starting a business in January. We had so much fun but the pictures are all so wonderful we are having a hard time deciding which one or two or three :) to choose. I am going to put a poll on the side and you tell me which one is your favorite :)

July 2009

The first of the month we went to St. George for the 4th with our friends Brittany and Jeremy. It was a ton of fun. We have a cute video of Trey from that weekend that we'll post later :)

I made these purses for my sister-in-laws. For some reason I can't find the picture of the one I made for Sarah, but it was Maroon and really cute. The yellow one is Malia's and the white one is Kristen's. :) I made them out of place mats :) My friend Leanne was kind enough to teach me how and then let me use her sewing machine. Thanks Leanne!

We took a week vacation to California so that we could see Kyle's family and some of our friends. We had so much fun being home. Here are some pics from the vacation. Trey Playing with his cousin Lucy in Grandma Sherman's Backyard

While we were in California I got to play Volleyball at my old high school in the Alumni vs. high school students game. It was so much fun! Although I felt pretty old. The other girls graduated like 5 years after me. :)

Of course we went to the beach. The week we were there the swells got up to 25ft in some places. Yikes!!

We also went to Sea World. It was a lot of fun. We are excited to go back at Christmas time. There was so much to see and not enough time in the day.

Trey got to touch a Sting Ray

Trey loved the Sharks!!

Watching Shamu with Grandma and Grandpa Sherman

When we got home from vacation Trey learned how to climb out of his crib :( We are in a whole new league now!! His crib lowered about 2 more inches but my mom thinks that'll only keep him in for another week and he'll find a way to get out now that he knows he can. What am I going to do? Any advice from you mom's out there?
