Last night Chris and I went to one of our high schoolers grad party which was awesome. Then we went to mom and dads so Chris could play wii with dad and smoke Cuban cigars and so mom and I could ride bikes for our nightly exercise. We had an awesome time and made s'mores....mom busted out some old dvds from our church when we first broke off from Calvary and had our first day as "Kindred" at the Elks Lodge. It was the coolest thing but so sad. Chuck wasn't sick yet and the church was booming and you could see Christ' love flow there. Ahh as time goes by you slightly forget how amazing it was and what an incredible teacher Chuck was. Then we watched the 1st anniversary of Kindred and also the first morning on the new property. Chuck was very sick then and ended up passing away 7 months later. We stayed until 12:15am just watching amazing memories. We also watched his memorial service...ahh my heart is broken. Time does help heal the pain but it's so hard to understand why the Lord chose to take such an incredible man home at 48. We miss him dearly. My sweet friend is so strong, I don't know how she does it....losing her dad at such a young age. The Obremskis are an amazing family. I am so thankful for them. I know Chuck and Pops would not want it any other way than to be in Heaven with Christ but I am missing them so much.

And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
