An Artist (Little Boy) point of view of the mountain:

Arizona has been really nice so far. The weather was hot last week (99 degrees in March??), but it really wasn't too bad. This week it's in the high 70's, low 80's and beautiful. Our ward is nice and I'm within walking distance to a mall. What more could I ask for?
What have I been doing? Painting, painting, and more painting. So far, we've painted the kitchen, family room, living room, guest room, foyer, Little Boy's room, and the Master bedroom. I've lost count of how many gallons of paint we've gone through. We still have the playroom (which we've been putting off because the walls go over the stairwell and we don't have a ladder tall enough), Little Sister's room, and my craft room to go. Most walls are still bare and we are still furniture-less in our living room and bedroom. The furniture has been ordered, we are just waiting. I'll share pictures as soon as everything is furnished!
Organizing, unpacking, and painting had me feeling a little crazy, so I decided to take on a sewing project just to do something different. I must say I should try something different a little more often:
This also gives you a little taste of all the painting I've been doing. Don't worry, our living room is not painted Hot Orange. It is Orange, but it's a terra-cotta rust color. You'll see...it's awesome.
That's all I've got for now....The Spuds and I are going to deliver our fresh baked chocolate chip cookies to our new neighbors.
