Yesterday I 'finished' cleaning my living room. It took probably 7 or 8 hours over the course of 3 days to get it done. I went through every piece of paper filed away in nine cubbies of 'stuff'. I went through the entire top of my desk which was piled with everything "important" since the kids won't touch there. I vacuumed the floors, moved the furniture even. I brought the 'extra' stuff cluttering up the space out to the garage to clutter there instead. It was CLEAN.
Then, we had a birthday party where we invited 12 friends and family members to share in the celebration of Wesley, Kristopher, and Emma's birthdays (turning 6 7 and 8!).
Now, you can't really tell that the room was once clean because it's covered in wrappers from toys, cards, and under the table is a good amount of birthday cake.
At least the cubbies are all organized now... right? :)
Pictures coming later! We had a great time celebrating and are so thankful to our friends and family for joining us!
To the Hollands: Kristopher said "I had a GREAT time!" (and he MEANT it!) and then... he said "but it would have been even better if the Hollands were here..." :) Just wanted to let you guys know he loves you and missed you. We COMPLETELY Understand why you couldn't make it! But that was too sweet not to share. :)
