As I mentioned before on Instagram and Facebook, I didn't get very many pictures, because we were so busy working. We did get to watch Monday Night RAW with my parents, though, and Britt found an app that has a survey to tell you which wrestler you are most like. Above, he is giving the quiz to my dad. My mom managed to suffer through the show - for some reason, she hasn't found her love of WWE drama like the rest of us have. We are still trying to convert her, but she's being stubborn on the matter, much to her grandchildren's dismay. They just can't understand how she couldn't love it!
At the end of week, we were able to fit in time for friends. The house was in shambles, as we finally repainted Britt's room, which is what took up the middle part of the week. Last year Britt and Daniel had a play date during Spring Break, and we redid Brailey's room, and Daniel's mom, my friend Kristin, got to see all the loveliness from Brailey's room, as well. She was also treated to the mess my house was during the week after Brady broke his leg this past summer. And most recently, the chaos of Britt's room. We finally got the house cleaned on Sunday, and I felt like calling Kristin so she could come and see our house NOT in shambles! All kidding aside, I know Kristin understands and she doesn't judge me, but it is kind of funny that everything is a mess every single time she has come out. The silver lining is that Britt and Daniel weren't bothered by the mess one bit! They still had a big time playing on the hill, climbing trees, having Nerf gun wars, playing with Legos and army men and talking up a storm. They are really fun to listen to. I love their precious hearts!
The before and afters... From a pirate wonderland to WWE. We are excited to begin decorating Britt's room, and he is thrilled with how it turned out. I'm so glad - it ended up being a much bigger project than I had anticipated it being, which put me behind on a couple of other things, but that's okay. Britt was so patient and helpful throughout the entire process, and he deserves to love his room.
And then it was HER turn to have a day with a friend. For the first time, I dropped her and Isa, one of her dear friends from previous years of volleyball, off at the mall and then took them to the movies. They had a wonderful, fun, exciting time and got to reconnect with each other. And they were totally fine on their own at the mall. They are both very responsible, kind and sweet. It is important to make time for friends - especially the ones you don't get to see very often.
And that brings us to yesterday. We found the most PERFECT set of limbs to add the finishing touches to Brailey's room. I love how they turned out! We may add some little lights to the limbs, but I think they look just as good like this, don't you? And below, Britt running down the hill yelling while Brailey closes the gate. They had just turned the horses out. It was a beautiful Palm Sunday, also my mom's birthday (read more about this in my previous blog post (Palm Sunday and Lent 2015 - The Struggle Is Real). We are so thankful to have had a week to get caught up, to decompress and to do the things we've been wanting and needing to do. Now we are rejuvenated and ready for a fresh start, which is what spring is all about, right? Hello, Spring 2015!
