Shrek Party

My son wanted a Shrek Four-ever after party
We made the cake in the shape of a seven  and used pie crust crumbed up to look  like dirt.I got the shrek figures from Ebay.

Worms and rock candies

Owl Birthday Party

The owl theme was everywhere at Valentines day so I used any pink Owls I found as part of the table decor.

Adding window molding and changing the fireplace

This was the before fireplace and window area.

We added window wainscoting  and painted the fireplace.

First Lewis traced the bottom of the  fireplace onto a box so he could cut a piece of plywood to go on top of the brick.

Then added plywood pieces on each  side of the front of the bricks.

Ripped out baseboards and trim under window.

Started adding trim to the top  and bottom part of the wood
Pre Painting the trim
Then trim was added up to the  ceiling and down to the floor 

Then used picture trim on the inside  of the trim to make a box wainscot look

Painted and the trim and bricks white
