Labor Day Weekend Fun!!

YEAH!!! Four day weekend...woo hoo!!! A long weekend came just in time for us to have some time to finish some projects and play outside with the boys in the AWESOME weather!!! While Brody did this...

We did a little 'pre' labor day painting. Aiden helped Daddy out with painting the mailbox post...

He's a pretty good painter!!! The mailbox looked great!

And I painted the master bathroom....
Here's the 'BEFORE'. Sorry...I forgot to take a picture of it before they took the fixtures down. It has been this red shade since we bought the house. It's not a true representation of the color...but good enough. I loved the color, but it did make it look a little small.

And here's the 'AFTER' :) Since we're selling, I picked a nice neutral shade of light sage green. I hope the buyers like it! I have painted with about every type of paint...this time I picked Martha Stewart because I liked the color. I wasn't all too happy with it. It had globs of paint all through it! Sorry Martha...I normally like you, but I'll have to pass on your paint in the future.

Don't mind the messy sink...I still have to finish my cleaning :)

And I worked on Aiden's quilt!! I had 8 rows all laid out in this pic...but now I have 10....I hope to finish laying out all the pieces tonight. The quilt will have 12 rows when its all said and done. I am LOVING it!!

On top of all this I baked 5 cakes and made 9 batches of icing. I have a wedding cake coming up this weekend and it will serve 250 people. Lots of cake and icing!!

And let's not forget about little Max! We all had such a great time enjoying the awesome weather. I can tell fall is right around the favorite season!!!

This used to be Justin's shirt when he was little. It really is the perfect shirt for Max. He's becoming so's funny at times and sooo frustrating at others. But I wouldn't change him one's his personality and I love him for it! I'm so thankful for both my boys and lucky that God chose me to be their mommy :)

I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend!!
