House Update

You guys we are SO close to closing that I can almost taste it! Mentally I'm already moved into our new space haha. Sharing a room (and bed!) with two little boys and husband has been quite the experience the past 10 months and we're all ready for a little more space and to get our things out of storage.

Since Josh and I have been doing a ton of the work ourselves like mentioned before we've honestly been over everyday and pretty much every night for the past month or so. It's been a lot of work! Needless to say there have been many days where we've exhausted both sets of grandparents babysitting help and the kids just have had to tag along with us. So we've set of a shop full of toys, pack n' plays and have let them have free range of the basement so we've been bringing bikes and trikes with us as well. And let's be honest, working on a house with kids present does not look like this. This is the fun/pretty part. The easy and clean part but for a while it was kids covered in dust, dirt, paint (yep, Finn knocked over a can of black paint all over our newly installed floors), but now that this big box actually looks like a house, it's been fun having them come hang out with us and to help measure things, daydream over their playroom and talk about the Christmas cookies that will be made in the newly installed kitchen.

It's been so much work getting here but I know it will be worth it in the end.

Concrete pathways, driveways and patios are being poured this week. From there the plumber is coming to install fixtures and Josh is finishing up the deck. Next will be the install of the garage door and the front beams wrapped!

It's been a long time coming but we're so close to the finish line! Can't wait to give you all a full tour once we're in. It's been so fun sharing the progress through my blog and IG stories. You all have helped me make some big decisions :)

Trick or Treating 2017

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday! Every year I love to test my craft skills and atempt to make our costumes. Since this year has been a little crazy with getting close to finishing our home and being up there a majority of the days and nights I opted to buy Josh's and Finns costumes and semi make mine and Copeland's. 

I give you our three ringed family circus! TA-DA! 

We had such a blast this year. Finley was so into knocking on doors and begging for candy (like that last picture) that's his "give me give me!" hand grab. Aren't holidays the absolute best with kids?! It's stressful, sure but so worth it! 

Hope you all had the best time trick or treating with your little monsters. Cheers to lots of Reese's cups and Milky Ways!
