Welcome to the Steeles’!

Welcome to the Steeles’!

James made us a “hipster badge” on the reverse of the scary tiki man boogie board. I wanted something with our name and year, and he took it from there! I absolutely love what he did! He created a stencil, cut it out, and spray painted the board. The kids and I came back from […]

When Uncle Matt Came

When Uncle Matt Came

Matt spent half of his spring break with us, and boy, were we thankful! He took care of some handyman projects around the house with laser-focus. As in, he was only two days in and done with them all! Sooo I asked him if he thought we could strip and stain the porch floor. Hehe. […]

The basement’s back!

The basement’s back!

What a long road this has been. We lost use of our basement as a regular living space February 2014 due to leaky walls, found it flooding again due to a sewer back up (twice in three days!), and discovered our water heater flushing itself during Liddi’s birth. Let’s just say it’s been a ride. […]

Working hard any way you slice it.

Working hard any way you slice it.

The kids and I spent a weekend with my family last month. My intention was to help my mom with her basement or scrapbook or anything to be a good firstborn and help out during her time off this summer. Unfortunately, we made those plans before I knew I was pregnant, so by the time […]

Sadly but thankfully.

Sadly but thankfully.

 Thankfully, our basement once looked like this with very little effort. Sadly, it no longer does. Thankfully, last Thursday we had a giant rainstorm, signifying the coming end of a long winter. Sadly, much of the rain and melting snow found its way in our basement. Thankfully, James had not yet used his Christmas Lowe’s […]

Eight ways to be thankful

Eight ways to be thankful

1. Projects: Plenty of spaces to organize and arrange We have more space than we need in this blessing of a house, so we’re trying to figure out how best to live in it. Now that we’ve lived a whole year in it, it’s coming more and more together. I went on a reorganizing frenzy […]

Matt’s Projects

Matt’s Projects

I got my window!!!!!!! So excited to see it hanging safely. Love our makeshift marker holders (holes in the window). I may have been so excited that I wrote “Hallelujah!” That’s what finished projects do to me–make me sing! Glad to have a place for James’ spontaneous art work. Matt also worked on this project. […]

When your man is away…

When your man is away…

What’s the best way to ensure hundreds of maggots, a house without power, water shooting through a basement hole, and a grumpy-doesn’t-even-begin-to-describe-him toddler? Have your husband leave for a week to attend a national design conference in San Francisco. But truly, and I mean truly, we have  much to be thankful for in the midst of […]

Dining Room Reveal

Dining Room Reveal

Missionary friend Ben Miller built and stained our beautiful farmhouse table and buffet shelf for us. (Plans found at www.ana-white.com.) We love it so so so so much! Whoa. Two kids live here. We finally found some baskets to fit our shelf at Hobby Lobby. Who knew finding more than one of the same basket would be so hard??? […]
