Vacation

This past week, Allen has been on vacation (aka staycation)... And luckily, so was Mommy! :)
It has been so nice to spend quality time together, without all of the hustle and bustle of everyday life... We had a chance to retreat to our own little world-- and get a lot of things done around here!

My project list was a mile long, so I got to tackle a few things on that... 
We got to work on the house a little, repairing some plumbing problems and whatnot;
And we started on one of B's Christmas presents-- Daddy decided to build her a toy box and Mommy is painting/designing it!!
Since I don't have much artistic ability when it comes to free-hand painting, I was so excited to find a vinyl decal to put on the side of it-- {from fivestarsigns on Etsy}
We also got to build B's first tent... She was in love!


Hope you all have a great weekend!

So fun!! Your time at home seems WAY more productive than ours... Whenever we're at the house it seems we can never accomplish anything because we're running after a baby 24-7. I know there has to be a trick to it, but so far we haven't mastered it. :)

I can't wait to see the pics of the toy box! I'm thinking about getting a tunnel for Nolan's Christmas.
