Did Anyone Say Skillz??

I don't get to brag about PJ's skills very often so I figured this is the perfect occasion for me to do it. We moved about two months ago and have been getting our new place painted, decorated, etc. Here are a few pictures of PJ's amazing skills with the kids' bedrooms. He worked really hard doing the prep-work with the color, taping, paint mixing, and pattern design and it certainly paid off. Check out these pics..
This is Dylan's Room. (Colors matched exactly to his bedding)We were so glad we got to finish painting it before the new baby comes. PJ used a lot of math and creativity to create this pattern on the walls...kind of cool huh?

Alex likes to play with basketballs, baseballs, footballs, etc. so we thought a sports theme would be perfect for his room. I seriously don't think he slept the first night he was there because he was so excited about it.

The numbers are my favorite part of this room.

Holiday Pics.

Just wanted share some of the pictures we took over the Christmas holiday. We had a TON of fun with everyone. We were tired when the festivities were over, but it was all worth it! My sister and her family were down here from Vernal for almost two weeks and we had a blast every single day they were here. The kids played a lot, cried a lot, laughed a lot, and the adults ate a lot and enjoyed of Mami Yoly's food every day. On the 23, we also got to go to the movies with mom & dad Carver, Crystal & the kids, and reenacted the Nativity scene later that evening. Then, on the 24, we got everything ready for the traditional Christmas eve party, and celebrated Andrew's birthday. We ate, played games, and even got to dance a little bit (it reminded me so much of Christmas in Ecuador). The kids opened presents from the family later that night, and they also opened presents from Santa on the morning of the 25. PJ and I loved, loved hosting our first holiday at our home. We love entertaining and having family and friends over and look forward to doing it a lot more this year.
