Elves!

It has been so hard to remember to do the elves at night.
I am so much more forgetful... and tired than I was all the years before, but we have been managing well.

The elves have put up a tree in the boys room, made ginger bread men and other fun things.

On the changing table in the babys diapers.




Puppet show for all their friends






Making breakfast




Playing guess who...


They have ripped up Kiadens homework and broke Ethans favortie dvd, The Polar express.  Its so much fun messing with them.
This weekend we are going to use paper, that long roll of paper you put on the floor when you paint, and baracade them in their room so they will have to rip it to come out. 
I can't wait!

We have everything for the baby now, just the dreaded painting left to do.  I can't wait to have it all done. 
I will post pics of it all then, along with the headboard we made.

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!






















Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Antiquing Furniture: No Sanding

For months now I have been telling my hubby that I want to try re-finishing a piece of furniture just to see how it turns out. We were driving home when I saw a garage sale sign and we went to my first ever garage sale. We found these 2 tables and figured it'd be the perfect time to experiment with the idea. We love the outcome so much we can't wait to do it again. Step 1:
 We went to  lowes and they mixed the color chalk board paint we wanted.  Why chalked board paint? NO SANDING! Yes, really, no need to sand!
We had them custom mix a light gray for us.  When painting don't worry about the brush strokes, it adds to the character.


Step 2:
We watered down some sample white paint and added a coat over the gray.  Don't worry about how white it looks, it dries almost clear.


Step 3:
Sand the corners and edges that would naturally get some wear and tear. We sanded the top and side smooth surfaces as well.




Step 4:
We got an almost clear wax and added ebony furniture stain.  …
