I've Been VERY busy!

This week I got a wild hair. Now when most people get a wild hair they go get a milkshake or something. Not me. Nope. I get a wild hair and decide to give our house an extreme home makeover.

This is something I've been wanting to do for a while, and I figured there is no time like the present!

So here you go...









Looks way better doesn't it?!?!

It was exhausting work to say the least, but I was able to do it in 3 days. Since Bren was working I did 90% of the work ALL BY MYSELF!

I still can't believe it. I love it. I am proud of myself for putting my mind to something and finishing it!

I am also so grateful for Bren. He is such a trooper! He came home from work one day with his children running around like a bunch of orphans and his house half painted. He just gave me a thumbs up and jumped in to help. I think at this point nothing I do surprises him! When I was completely spent after laying a stone front porch ( yes, I did that too! ) he stepped in after a long day at work and helped finished the job.

He is the ultimate team mate and helper... for that I am grateful!

The boys... oh yes... my little orphans. They ran around for days, dirty, covered in paint and cement, and completely off schedule.

Collins had to put himself down for a nap.

Jack was more than eager to get messy with me.

My boys are going to think that our crazy life is normal. Maybe one day I'll explain that they have a crazy mother and this is not normal :)

Other than that it has been life as normal...





Sorry for the long post. I wanted to throw everything in because who knows when I will post again :)

The house looks awesome! I am so super impressed that you would even attempt to paint the whole house while at home with two kiddos. You are my hero! Your boys are so cute too! Love the picture of Collins napping.
