Weekend: Cleaning, Crafting and Hanging out

This weekend there has been lots of cleaning around our house in preperation for Keira's big birthday celebration in 6 days!  I will continue to clean all week making sure the house looks presentable for people to come into...although if you were to come into my house today it looks like a tornado went through our living room...ahhh the joys of kids.

The girls played nicely this weekend with only a few fights, which is nice cause I wasn't feeling to hot yesterday so it was nice that they played together and let me rest on the couch.  I am feeling better today, although I am tired...for whatever reason I woke up at 3:45am and couldn't fall back asleep, I finally fell back asleep around 6:15am.  I had so many things running through my head.


 I put away like 4 loads of laundry yesterday as well.  Can I just tell you how much I HATE putting laundry away.  I will wash and dry the clothes all day but I always procrastinate as long as I can on putting the clothes away.  The clothes probably stay in the basket for a week before I finally put them away or when the hubs is like I have NO MORE SOCKS!

After my cleaning and doing laundry I decided to get a little crafy and make the girls matching hair clips for their Christmas outfits.  I think they turned out pretty darn cute!  Their Christmas outfits are complete and I'll be taking their Christmas pictures after Keira's party and once I get all of our Christmas stuff set up.

I attached Keira's clip to a headband and Kaylee's is on a clip

 Today we are just hanging out around the house, the weather is freezing and  raining.  So we will not be going anywhere.  It's 10:27am IS IT NAP TIME YET?!  The girls are driving me crazy already.  Kaylee isn't listening and talking back and Keira is getting into EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
Daddy is not home, he's helping his dad get ready for a big pool job that there starting tomorrow.

Last night I decided to get in the Christmas spirit a little bit and set up a few of my Christmas houses that my mom had given me.  I think after Christmas is over I will be going to Michael's to get more when there on sale!  So next year I'll have a cool little set up.

I am thankful for the bond that Kaylee and I have.  I love when she runs up to me and puts her head on my
shoulder and tells me "your my best friend mommy".  It just makes my heart melt

Day 20/30 days of Thankfulness
November 20th, 2011
I am thankful for my blog.  I love that I will be able to look back at all the fun we've had and that I've been able to document it all.


  1. awww...the "your my best friend" comment is so sweet! Raya always says "I like Mama" lol


  2. Yes, I think the 'you're my best friend mommy' is on my top 5 list of sweetest things my kaylee says. :) love keiras little hat, so cute! & your laundry looks exactly like mine. lol. I'm guilty of letting it sit in the basket for a 'few' days too. lol.

  3. I totally feel the same way about laundry. I will have mountains of laundry on my kitchen table before I FINALLY break down & put it away.

    Their hairclips are so cute. Can't wait to see the pictures of them in their outfits.

    Cute houses...I haven't broke out my Christmas decor yet.

    Good luck getting everything accomplished for the party this week!!!

  4. I hate putting clothes away too. I will have piles of it before I finally break down and put it away. The Christmas headbands turned out SO cute. I can't wait to see the girls all decked out for Christmas!
