Finally a kitchen cabinet redo . . .

Every year we do an update to something in our home. This year it was time for our kitchen cabinets to be redone. It was a hard decision to decide to refinish with a stain or to paint them. We decided to paint and that meant another  hard decision to come up with the right paint color. We purchased 12 different paint samples. The final look is just perfect.

This is a before but not very good picture. I always wait until almost to late to get the before picture.

Now this is the finished look after one week.

We love them. Picture actually show more silver. They have a little more green I think.

Tatum's Birthday

Tatum turned six this year and she celebrated at Chipolte!. That was her choice. We than went to a play called, "Hairspray" at  Perry High School. She doesn't like movies but she loves going to live performances.

Tatum has really changed this year. She has lost her teeth and most of her curls. She is no longer a little girl but a big girl. She got her ears pierced for the second time and changes her own earrings quite often. She still likes her American Girl dolls and got the newest one for her birthday. She is pretty social  and yet picky in ways of dressing. Nothing tight for her it seems. I am not sure how she feels about school. I first thought she liked it but not so sure these days. Maybe she is just too smart for the rest of them.

Tatum started cheerleading in school. She was pretty excited about her first performance.

Cooper's Birthday

Cooper turned 10 years old and of course we celebrated at his favorite pizza joint "Florendino's". He always orders the cheesy breadsticks. Then we opened presents and had a cookie birthday cate at Nana's house>

He also  had to plant a tree for his advancement in boy scouts. Since the Snesko family have no yard to plant a tree in he asked if he could plant one in our yard. He shoveled and shoveled and dropped the tree in with our watchful eyes.

It is my opinion that Cooper has really blossomed this year. I previously saw him as very quiet and not having much to say. However, his mom doesn't agree with me on that. To me he has become "funny as heck" and makes a pretty good conversation. He has become an outstanding individual and forming his own personality in the way he acts and dresses. His new look this year is this:
