|not in a picture taking mood, mom!|
Last week, my BFF and former college roomie Lisa and her kiddo came to stay with us for a few days. She and her husband are moving to Malaysia this fall so we only have a little bit more time to spend together before she's continents away. Warren played great with the quads, who have been working through some crankiness that past two weeks—ever since they got their 12 month vaccinations. Combined with ongoing teething and they've been little hell raisers that have made me question my sanity more than a few times in the last couple weeks. But, like I told my mom, I can't lose my mind because I don't have time to find it!
Their mood transition was good timing because we've had a round of visitors over this weekend. My mom stayed with us Friday night while the movers brought everything. And miracle of all miracles, the babies still took their regularly scheduled naps and hung out in their room with Grandma until the movers were done. Saturday we were unpacking boxes and my mom unpacked and put away our entire wet bar's worth of wine glasses, margarita glasses, martini glasses, beer glasses, shot glasses...well, you get the gist. And I swear we don't drink that much. Wait, how much is "that" much? ;)
My sister, Summer, Sabrina and her granddaughter, Rayne, all came to see the house on Saturday afternoon. Shortly after they arrived, both of the husband's brothers as well as his older brother's wife and kids plus the husband's parents all arrived. We had a house full! But even with seven kids, ranging in age from one to five, going to town in the playroom it still held up great and there was room for everyone. We added two recliners and a hutch for the TV and DVD player to the playroom and the magnetic chalkboard fireplace cover the husband and I made has turned out to be great. (I'll have a DIY post on that soon.) I loved seeing our playroom full of kids having fun, and both the husband and I loved seeing our house full of family. Better yet, all with room to walk and talk and hang out!

Today has been a cloudy, gray and rainy day. The babies slept in until 8:15 this morning, at which point the husband and I jumped up to get them all changed and made fried potatoes, scrambled eggs and fruit for breakfast. We've just been hanging out in our pajamas since, moseying around doing a few things, watching Madagascar 3 with the kiddos, eating and doing laundry. It's the perfect end to a busy week and the bit of R&R we needed to get ready for another one. Happy Sunday folks, and come on back tomorrow for a major giveaway!
