I had to pick and choose what I multi-tasked, and this blog lost out for quite a while.
Thank you to my extended family for asking for updates! Let's play catch-up, shall we?
Summer House Projects
Besides the fence, we did quite a bit of landscape work. We removed the sod along one side of the house and put in rock. This is where we store our trailer the majority of the year.
I also spray painted all of the oil rubbed bronze fixtures brushed nickel. I really love our nook light, but I couldn't find anything I really liked for our dining room, so spray paint it was! I also bought new globes for the lamp. I think it turned out great.
Enjoy the messy house! I was busy cleaning out the bar cabinets during this project.
We also changed the sink light to a brushed nickel one.
We also have new countertops, sink, and backsplash. But they aren't fully complete......update soon!
We lived in our backyard this summer. The new playset was a HIT!
I created a 'truck wash' for them and filled their pool with water beads :) Anything to keep them busy during the work day!
My mental sanity was dependent on a daily walk. It wore the boys out (the very tiniest bit) and let me get some alone time to work when we got back.
I already mentioned that #biggywiggy potty trained this spring, and he recently moved to a full sized bed. He also had his FIRST dentist appointment (only rescheduled 4 times since April.)
His new comforter and shams arrived last night!
What is time?
We were under quarantine during Halloween. Due to Covid we had no plans to trick or treat anyways. We spent the day painting pumpkins and watching children's Halloween songs.
Then in the afternoon we headed into the backyard to pick up the summer toys in anticipation of the coming snow storm. While the storage shed was open, we pulled out all of the Christmas decor (to set up on November 1st). Then the oldest ask if we could pretty please put up the tree.
Of course, the answer was YES!!
The FUNNEST indoor winter game : Indoor Snowball Fight.
My mom found these and sent them up with our Christmas presents and they are THE BEST.

The Monday after Kindergarten stared, #biggywiggy started Pre School!
We decided that since big brother was in school, we would send little brother back until the schools closed down again (Spoiler Alert: which would only be two months.) #biggywiggy missed his friends and was ready for some more structured play.
