We Bought a House

I am excited to report that the Stone house has moved about a block away. 

We bought a cute yellow bungalow with a large front porch in our current neighborhood, Bradburn, of Westminster, Colorado.

Pretty fun. I have been nesting up a storm :) Now I get to pick paint colors, I love this part.  Any ideas for a whole house color palette?  I like grey's and blue's. Although my family room is orange and originally I thought that color was gonna go, I kind of love it, and think it will stay. I will post a photo so you can see it and you can vote.

Parenting like the French

I want to buy these books because I saw this post a long time about How to Raise Kids Like a French Woman on Cup of Jo's blog and I just find it very interesting and several points I would like to follow when I have little ones of my own.

Cup of Jo also blogged about how to teach your kids how to eat by using tips from the French. What is it with those Frenchies?  Too smart maybe.  Check these tips out and tell me what you think.  I really love the idea of not using food as a reward. Smart.
