Our rental

Our rental in Twin Falls is small, but homey and cozy.

These pictures are from the rental add and it is not our stuff in the photos.

Some ideas for our update

I don't know if we will get to do our updates sooner our later on our new house, but we definitely want to update the kitchen and bathrooms.

These are some of our ideas we are gathering.

We have a new kitchen layout that would take out the wall between the kitchen and front room so we can have a large island--one of my favorite features in a kitchen.

I love bright spaces so I'm thinking white cabinets.

How about a subtle yet fun backsplash of crackle glass tile.

We don't have our budget set yet, but if I can get enough good deals I'm going for hardwood floors through the kitchen, dining and living room.

Also some ideas for wall color for bedrooms.

Our new house

We are buying a house and hope to close in the next few weeks.
We hope to do some painting and updating, but for the most part the house is move in ready.

It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in 3000 square feet. Being split level is awesome and it has a family room on the main floor and each of the 2 lower levels.

We are so excited to have a garage and storage space (something our current rental doesn't have).

We saw Santa

Becca's Birthday

Becca turned 6. She got a stuffed Hello Kitty and some art supplies. We bought a premade white cake and then decorated it with a gingerbread house theme.


We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. All of the Smyth family were there at Spencer's house in Idaho Falls. Mike traveled the furthest from South Carolina and the rest of us live are all closer to home now that we have all graduated.

The cousins had a fabulous time together and played many games, the favorites being clue and rummikub.

This is the first time in years that all my siblings have been together. For the past three years most of us have been in school and scattered across the country.
