Project time!!

Yuckie!! This was our project this week!! To make this ugly chair into...
This pretty and colorful chair! I was given this amazing table with 6 chairs from a previous resident and he had bought it from the Salvation Army. It was a really great table it just needed a little touch up. I had mentioned to one of my Residents\friends that I wanted to update the cushions but didn't know how nor did I have the patients to do them! LOL Well Myranda always wanted to try and I offered to be the guinea pig. I have to admit....they turned out AMAZING. It really brightens up our entire apartment.

side by side pics of before and much better, don't ya think?!!!

AHHHH!!! Myranda!!! Your the best! It took her 1 hour of shopping and about 4 hours on Monday and 3 on Tuesday to get it all done. I have to admit, I just watched and cheered her on!! I am so blessed to have creative friends who help me out! You know who you all are! Pillows are next...any takers!!!!!! :)

Monsters vs. Aliens

The Monsters WON!! hahaha Emma and her friend Jasmine (from preschool) were able to hang out together for a fun friend day! They started out playing for almost 2 hours together at the Gym where Jasmine's mom works\workout at. I joined about 3 weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised to see Alisha in the Kids Zone working! Yeah! We all met up at the movie theater to see Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D. The girls were so excited to see a movie together that they talked about it for days...before and after! The girls had popcorn, drinks and candy and sat together throughout the whole movie. They both were extremely good and very still (which is surprising for Emma!). It was so adorable when they both would giggle at the same thing in the movie and look at each other and laugh harder. Emma is very thankful for her friends!
