i also needed to attack the toy situation. we had too many in the first place, plus all the toys the kids got for christmas made it hard to find a home for all of them. i also needed to get rid of the ones that were no longer being played with, but i didn't want all the new ones to be out for daycare boy to have access to. is that mean? anyway, target had these shelving units on sale so we went and bought two different ones and some of the canvas bins to put toys in. one of the units is in the kids' room and stores toys and other miscellaneous stuff. if you look passed the mess of toys on the floor, this is the set-up we came up with. the big toys have a place and most of the remaining toys on the floor went in the diaper box and will eventually be taken to the salvation army to be donated. i am happy with the way it turned out and the lack of mess the kids end up making.

the week between christmas and new years, adam took off work and i didn't have daycare boy, so we decided to get a few home projects completed since we could easily get rid of the kids for a few days. we delivered the kids to my parents' on wednesday evening and bright and early thursday morning, we were tackling the to-do list already. i cleaned/organized the kitchen counter and cupboards while adam started on the livingroom paint job. this is what it looked like before he started, after the first coat of paint and then finished.
