Grandpa Strong

Yesterday morning i received a call from my father informing me that my grandpa Strong passed away. This has given me some time to think about the great memories i have had of that great man. I really love this picture that many others in the family have posted to their blogs. This picture reminds me of the love my grandpa had for music. I always enjoyed listening to him play the piano. He would play using the black keys and his music had a very distinct sounds that will always remind me of him. I also remember how kind and loving he was to all those around him. He would always give me a big hug before i would leave and tell me he loved me. I also will remember the love he had for his wife. I will always remember him calling my grandma his sweetheart and never once did I see them argue. My grandpa also was able to give my my patriarchal blessing and seal me and Alisha in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity. For these and many other reasons I will miss my grandpa dearly. I look forward to the day when I can see him again in the next life.Families are forever

Summer Projects

All I have to say is that my husband is AMAZING!!! While I was away at girls camp, Daniel decided to tile our ugly laundry room. He did awesome! When I got home from girls camp he had all the time cut, laid, grouted, and sealed. We just wanted the room done and I wanted to wash my smelly clothes so we painted the room that same day!

I gotta say.... I love it!

I love my handy husband!

I also have to give a huge shout out to my awesome brother, MARCUS for helping us pick out our tile and making sure we have everything we need! He is majoring in Interior Design and is Amazing! You can check out his work at Marcus Hamblin Design .

Thanks to my willing father-in-law for being willing to come and help Daniel with the tile.

Thanks to my parents f
or being willing to drive our tile down from Utah! It was great seeing you guys!

This past week Daniel has been busy again! He decided to tile our master bath and closet. He got all the floor ripped up and ready to go by Friday and then Saturday he got all the tile in. Again he did an awesome job.

*P.S. Sorry the pics are kinda blurry. Don't know how to work Daniel's Camera yet! =)

We had these crazy nobs on our master bathroom cabinets. I HATED them! So we finally replaced them tonight!

I think they look so much better. Our next big project will be to sand down our ugly cabinets and stain them a nice cherry color.

This was my big project this summer. I did rag quilt. I just love how it turned out.
