Some Pictures

I'm still sifting through all the pictures I took and am actually working on our 3rd day, so there's still tons of pictures to go! I will not be sharing ALL the pictures here, there's just too many for one and there are just some that are special and will only be shared with close friends and of course family.

Things are busy here. Chad's still on leave and today he and the boys started working on the playroom. The playroom will no longer be, it's being turned into the boys bedroom. The toys are being weeded through. If it's broken it's going to the trash. They're having to decide what they want to keep, only what can go into the storage unit we bought when Chad was home for his R&R during his last deployment and some bigger toys that can fit into their toy box. We're going to be buying them a love seat for their room this week and just getting it all moved around. We're also going to paint what is currently the boys bedroom and making that into Emma's room. It's going to be pink or lavender, what ever of those two colors self-help has. I'm hoping for lavender, but if all they have is pink that's ok! Then I'll be looking for curtains for her room or will have my mom make some if I don't find what I want. I'll also be looking for a new, pretty carpet for her room too, so she has a soft place to play as she grows. I'm looking forward to decorating the room all pretty and girly! I've waited a long time to get to do this again! :) Once it's all done I'll take pictures! LOL Hopefully we can be pretty well done, other than small details by this weekend. Friday we will probably not get much done because Chad and I will most likely be driving my friend Heather's parents to see her, and we'll get to see Heather!!!!! I am thrilled over that prospect!

Hope you enjoy the pictures. They're are some from Dublin, Glendalough (pronounced Glendolock), Rock of Cashel and Killarney National Park, oh and Sally's Gap which is in the Wicklow Mountains. They're between Dublin and Glendolough. It was truly stunning! It's taking a lot of work to edit them, label them, etc. So bare with me!

Also if you haven't been, go check up on Heather there's so much that's happened.
