PicMonkey Sign

I LOVE to get on Picmonkey and make signs!! Made this for the twins baby books! I stamped their foot on plain white cardstock and scanned it into the computer. Then used the Picmonkey college builder. Make sure if you do this that if you do a transparent background and then add it to a background later. Then you can save and upload to any printing company (shutterfly, walgreens, walmart, etc) and have it printed. I will have this printed as a matte finish. :)

A wreath, a room redo, a Christmas tree.... Oh my!!

At last a real entry! We are literally iced in!! The kids and hubby got snow days on Friday. The last two days have been so relaxing!!! Pajamas, movies, coffee/hot cocoa, online Christmas shopping and staying snuggled under the covers!! Roads are bad! So bad in fact my coffee girls family Christmas party got cancelled tomorrow. Since we are a busy group of girls thankfully we got another date on the calendar before Christmas!! Since I wasn't cooking for the party i was able to get a new bright fun christmas wreath finally made!!!


I mentioned online shopping,..... Best thing ever!!! I think I've gotten about 90% of my shopping done as well as Brits birthday, a dress for her to wear to Uncles wedding and the twinlets first birthday toys (thank you Kohls sales with free shipping and 25% off the total!!) 

Won't Britney be beautiful in this!! 


So besides being incredibly busy running a house, getting kids to & from and taking care of twins I've been redoing some of my house!! I'm excited to show you some pictures!!! After ordering two high chairs Riley and I sub combed to the fact our dining room wasn't working. We had ordered a new table way before I found out I was pregnant. Our dining room wouldn't fit the table and two high chairs. Then we had a brilliant idea to switch our front living area (we have a den too) and dining area. Omg it makes it feel like a new house!!! 

This is my old dining room... Sorry this is an old picture... I forgot to take a new one before redoing the room. :)

New Room before we painted! 

Laying out our gallery wall!!! We traced our art work onto random old wrapping paper!! 


With in paint and gallery wall!! The paint is called Romantic Overcast. I had found the color at Walmart but had the paint done at Home Depot!!

This one of my favorites on the gallery wall. I made the design on pic monkey and then printed it on muslin (used the freezer paper technique). It's hard to read at the angle I took the picture. Under the seven it says, "2+2+1+2" (order of how how our family was created!) 

With all the babies stuff out we decided to buy a new Christmas tree a d set it up in this new walkway room!! 
With new tree up!! 

Milton Jingles our elf always leaves the kids pajamas, advent candy and a movie &/or family game on December first!! 

Here's the new dining room!!! We aren't going to paint until after Christmas. (The baby pictures have been moved to the gallery wall and my cherry picture hung, I haved had a chance to retake a new picture). The room accommodates our large family as the table can stay extended out to 108 inches all the time!

I did get my kitchen finished it! This pain pt color is Dior Grey by Benjamin Moor


That's it for now!!! Five children are up and we've got a fun day of being iced in, relaxing and wrapping to do!! :))))

This is why....

This is why I'm only able to stop by and do short posts..... I'm absorbing every minute of them!!! Today while they napped I got homemade baby food sweet potatoes made and froze. Then set up a mini photo shot for when they woke up. I'm no photographer but they turned out cute!!!

The Six Month Mark!!

I don't have time to post a long update tonight so I will post some cute pictures!!



! I keep thinking I will have an available minute BUT every minute has had something. We just finished a 9 day holiday with Riley and the older B's. I was so sad to see them all off this morning. I can't wait to show you what we changed up in our house!! We did quite a bit of painting over the holiday and then rushed to get the house back together for our Thanksgiving guests!! Then it was putting up the tree! Soon!
The twinlets had their six month well visit this morning. Barrett is 13lbs and Brennen is 12lbs 12oz's. They are just little darlings and make our whole family so happy!! Ok, I'm off to SLEEP!! Thankfully I have good little sleepers!
