A "New" Table!!!

Awhile ago Ben's parents gave us their old table. It needed to be cleaned up a bit and so it sat in our garage as a daunting task needing to be completed. After a few months of sitting there I decided it was time to tackle the project. I stripped all of the old stain off the table set and refinished the table. It has taken me three months and hundreds of hours to get this project done. I am sooo excited that it is finally done! Here are a few pictures of our "new" 100 year old table.

Syrup Anyone?

When I came upstairs, David had prepared his own plate of french toast. His plate is three pieces of french toast and half a bottle of syrup. He only ate a few bites.

October Recap

We have had a busy October! Here are a few of the things we have been doing. The kids took all of the leaves from the front yard in buckets to the trampoline in back. They were entertained for hours!

We made sugar cookies and David turned the mixer on full speed, which sent a flour shower all over the kitchen, what a mess!

We went to Elitch Gardens, an amusement park in Denver. We had a fun time with shorter lines because of less people.

School was canceled on the day of the school Halloween parade and class parties. My neighbor and I threw a spontaneous party for the kids in the neighborhood. We ate snacks, had Halloween music playing, had a costume parade and told spooky stories. It was not quite as cool as a class party but we did the best we could.

Our kids loved Trick or Treating! They were pretty hard core and went to a lot of houses, which resulted in too much candy but a nice stash of chocolate for Ben and I to keep hidden and snack on when the kids go to bed.

I have been trying to spend more time playing with my kids. Jacob wanted to practice taking pictures so he took this last week while we were spending time together.
