Weekend in Photos

The weekend is over?
I think I may be in denial...
OK, I know I'm in denial.

This weekend went by wayyy too fast. We spent a lot of time around the house doing various projects (but the to-do list is getting smaller!) and talking to nice workers at Home Depot for over an hour, but Saturday afternoon we celebrated my stepbrother's 5 kids' birthdays. If you are new around here, my stepbrother has quintuplets (five!) that are now 12 years old, and they also have another baby girl named Lindsey. For their birthday party, they had a bus come that is filled with video games. The kids loved it. They also have a zipline in their backyard so everyone was taking turns on it..pretty cool, huh?

Since I'm tired beyond belief...here's my weekend via pics.

Me and my niece Mara

Lindsey..how precious is she?

new blog print that I'm kind crazy about. :)

Let's talk briefly about my super amazing hubs.
This weekend he finished refurbishing our kitchen table
 to exactly what I wanted!
The top of it is the same color as our wood floors
 and the base is an off white color.
I'm so proud of him..he did such a good job.
I will do a whole blog post on this soon once we get chairs,
so if you have a table that needs a makeover-stay tuned!
(the before pic was after he sanded it down-it didn't look that bad before!)

In exactly ONE month we will be picking up
Steph and BBFT/tubby from the Columbus airport!!!!
{and shortly after that Erica & Jess will be joining us for what I'm sure is going to be an unforgettable weekend :)}

EXCITED is an understatement, people.

How did you spend your weekend?!

That video game bus is such a cool idea. My nephew would seriously die if that pulled up to our house. And I loveeeeeee ziplines. I would have come just for that.I really wanted to zipline in Hawaii but never gto around to reserving it. BOO! I regret it. I guess that means I will just have to go back.

  16. Oh my gosh...I use to babysit for the quints!!!! What a small world! Gina's little brother, Nick, and I went to grade school together and they asked for volunteers to help babysit when the quints were being born. Wow, I haven't seen them in forever!! I heard they had a little one after the quints...that's so great. :)
