Productive weekend

We had quite the productive weekend! Worked on little projects that we have been blowing off because of helping my parents out so much. We pulled out ALL the kids' summer clothes and made them try them all on to see what we needed for this year. Christian fits in just about everything still! (thank goodness!!) Just needs some new warm weather PJs. Ava fit in much more than I thought she would. Still needs a lot of shorts and a few more dresses. And, of course, PJs. Overall, I'm *very* happy with how it turned out. :)

We also did a million loads of laundry and worked on the piles of paper we have laying around. I swear...papers breed when they hit our house! LOL They are everywhere! I still have the dining room table covered with different piles of stuff from around the house, but I'm hoping to finish that today or tomorrow. Then, need to finally implement some organization...sick of having stuff scattered everywhere and not able to find things!

Going to my mom's house right now to take care of her. Then, need to do Christian's birthday party invitations. He wants a pirate party! :) I'm so excited and can't wait to make it super fun for him and his little friends!! :) Bought this super cute kit by Heather Roselli at Sweet Shoppe to make the invitations and will use it for other party stuff as well. Isn't it cute?!!?

Have a great day and TTYS! {HUGS}

Back in the swing of things...

As most of you know already, my mom has been very sick for the past 5 weeks. In and out of the hospital twice and still VERY weak and needing help with every little thing. She's not able to do hardly anything by herself. Needless to say, we've all been exhausted from running around taking care of her and their house. It's finally started to let up a little bit because she's able to be left alone by herself a little bit more and they've taken the dog back for now. Leaving us a little more time to our own house/family and doing some projects. :)

We've lived in this house for almost a year now and FINALLY got up our first drops of paint! :) I absolutely can't stand white walls, so this is a BIG accomplishment! :) We painted the family room green/white and the dining room a yellow with white trim. Excited to work on more projects and get things more pulled together. :)

Have a good weekend! We don't have much planned. Beauty & The Beast musical at Cara's high school Saturday(she's the spatula and a townsperson) and having Jason/Kathy over Sunday night. TTYS!
