A few things.

I have a new nephew! Matthew Calvin Hill is the 13th grandchild and the 7th boy! The oldest grandchild is 9 so it's quite the party when we're all together. He is super precious and so so tiny! He looks just like his brother Ryan and I love cuddling him and holding him.
Dan grew his hair out (again...) and his mom cut this sweet mullet (not on purpose) in process of cutting it off.
We made a small change to our family room and I think it will end up being more of a big change when we're done. But we love it so far! Our TV wall was painted red and we really liked it for awhile, but we decided we wanted to paint it lighter and add more to that wall.
Here is the red wall before...
And here is the lighter wall after we painted it! We got it done in just about 2 hours and it only took 2 coats to completely cover the red! I love Behr paint + primer! I think the room looks a ton brighter now and we really love it.
I also found that cute ottoman/storage bench at Kmart of all places! We have gotten some houseplants and Dan is obsessed with them and I don't mind them either.

We bought the exact mirrors below and we're planning on putting them on either side of the TV like the picture below. We also want to get a new TV stand (that is just our old coffee table). I'm thinking I'll find a cute dresser on KSL or at D.I. and paint it to use as a TV stand.
So we made a few changes and I still have several things to finish it and I'm sure I will constantly be making changes, but we like it so far.

I like the wall lighter a lot! It looks fab! Good work. Can't wait to see the new T.V. Stand:)

Why didn't you go into interior design? Your house is so cute.

I have to say I think that is the cutest baby boy I've ever seen! (except for his brother . . . he was just as cute.) I love the wall, and had to laugh at all the painting you must have gone through, but it was worth it and looks great!

Wow, the wall looks great! It totally changes the look of the whole room. NICE!
