Rental House #4

We got it all painted! Yay! Took A LOT of hard work, and many, MANY hours. But, we're done! And today is my B-day! Now I'm 12! Yay! Here's some house pics:

Dining Room
Sanded Stairs!
Sanded Living Room
Upstairs Bathroom
Sanded Floors

Kitchen. Compare: Top color is real color. Darker color is primer.
L's room
Still L's room
Me and H's room! Love the color!

 Nice, huh? We move on Friday. We go to Montana Saturday. It's pretty hectic! The owner of our house got his shed finshed, and he's letting us put our stuff in there. Today we brought our beds and drawers and clothes there. We sleep on the ground tonight!

 I got a bunch of wicked cool presents today. From L, a Giant Gummy Bear on a Stick from Vat19, from H, all the candy I love, and from parent's, my own chinese food meal, a diary, and a Jelly Belly snowcone maker with syrup! (Snowcone syrup, not panner-cake syrup.) Thanks all- in- my- family! There's still more to open! Yay!

Whats Been Up Lately

Well, we have been going to work on the rental house a lot. Like 9 hour days. Today we were there 5 hours. Mostly all those hours are filled with painting. I'll post some pics when it's all done!  

We gave away all the kittens:) :(. Sad, but happy because they will have a better life. Good for them!

Happy Fathers Day, everyone! Go Dads! The favorite thing about my Dad is he always wants to play with us, and he shares his candy! THANKS DAD!

I can't wait to go to Montana! Yay! I wish Lottie could come. Hm.

Whole-Wheat Lemon Blueberry Mini-loaves With Lemon Vanilla Bean Glaze

These mini-loaves are da bomb.

Fresh lemon and blueberrys, topped off with a lemon-vanilla glaze. And they're healthy beacause they are whole-wheat! And they are 100% our own recipe too!

It's nice to bake them in mini-loaves because everyone gets their own serving. Good for traveling!

They look very pretty too, especially with the glaze. They taste even better! 

These are good for summer with their fresh fruity lemony-ness and blueberry-ness. And whole-wheat-ness.

Try these soon! They are quite easy to make, just add dry and wet ingredients and mix! 

Thanks for reading!
