This weekend is going so fast...but don't they all? Friday night my niece A stayed over night with Hayley and Brayden. It was nice having her here since they kiddos adore her and followed her around like good little puppies. Sleeping that night was another story, but we all made it through..(although I had a headache in the morning like I had been drinking all night since I was up two time during the night getting the kiddos back to bed. I do believe the 4:45 in the morning; dressed and ready to just a little too early for ME! Good thing you forget those sleepless nights when you have a baby! Then Nanny came to p/u Brayden and Uncle Jake came by and got A and Hayley. The kiddos were spending the night and Scott and I were heading to a wedding of a family friend. The wedding was beautiful and the Happy couple was leaving that evening on a flight to Disney World!! We were home early (around 8PM) and sat on the back porch with good friends just talking and listening to the rain on the canopy. This morning I am enjoying the quietness of the house and should be doing some things around here besides sitting and blogging (LOL) Scott is at work and the kiddos are still at their sleepovers. We have my niece A's B-day party this afternoon at 1PM. YUMM YUMMM...Lena's Spaghetti!

The rest of the week is going to be a blur!!:
Monday: Work and odds and ends
Tuesday: Work (leaving early!!), Brayden's 2-year-old class graduation, Hayley dance class (luckily Aunt Lori and Uncle Steve are taking her there)
Wednesday: Work, Hayley's Preschool graduation (she will be staring Kindergarten next year *sob sob*), Hayley tap class
Thursday: NO work!! But need to get ready for the cabin for the weekend and then I am having a Stampin' UP party at 6:30 PM
Friday: I'm not sure if I am not working or working half a day....will still have things to get ready to go away for the long weekend....and may just take the whole day off
Friday afternoon, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday: Off to the cabin. Hopefully we can do some fun things with the kiddos and the weather is somewhat cooperative!!
Hope everyone has a great week!!

Show us where you live Friday

Over at Kelly's Korner she is hosting a virtual home tour and this weeks is living rooms.

Here is a view of our living room standing at the front door

looking into the dining room. We have been in our house almost

2 years, but we have not yet painted the living room. I still

do not know what color I want to paint it.

This is a favorite piece of furniture for us. Scott's grandpa
built this many years ago. Scott and I painted it probably
10 years ago and had it in our bedroom. It now fits perfectly in
the living room.

The TV corner

View from the dining room. The table under the
window my mother gave to us and I absolutely adore it.

The picture to the left, Hayley made for me for Mother's Day 2006.
the one to the right, I made as stocking stuffers for Christmas 2006.
Brayden was 11 months old & Hayley was only 3.
They grow up so fast!

Pictures and Willow Tree Angels above the couch
(I was a Home Interiors fanatic back in the day)

My favorite living room decorations!!
Hope you enjoyed the tour....I am looking forward to seeing everyones'
Living Rooms!!!

Kitchen Tour

Show Us Where You Live Friday

Over at Kelly's Korner she started "show us where you live Friday's". This weeks tour was of Kitchens, I am a few days late but wanted to here it is!! We have been in our house since August 2007. We have not done anything to the kitchen yet, and thankfully so since we water damage last summer, which you can see in the third and fourth picture that shows my GREAT light above the bar area. The light is supposed to be a pot rack...but I just did not like my pots hanging I put baskets there.

This is actually where we eat all the time! We
only use our dining room table when we have
company...and yes that is a TV at the end of
the bar. LOL

This is the door to our basement, which my
husband finished...hopefully Kelly will do a
tour of Rec rooms/Family rooms!!

The dining room table that is hardly ever used!

The door out to the garage and the
kids coat and pack back area...oh and
Winnie's bone at the end of the hallway.
The doors to the left hide my washer
and dryer. The door to the right is the
coat closet. There is also a pantry right
beside the fridge, but I forgot to take a
picture of that.

Here is one bonus picture of the landscaping
that Scott and I did on Saturday. I took the
picture tonight and it has been raining ALL
day here in PA. I was unable to take a picture
of the other side, which has a beautiful purple
rhodendrum and another flower pot of annuals
