Seven days

 

Seven days in the life of a large household can be chaotic, stressful and of course joyful. This past week was no different and included last minute preparations for the bridal shower, a trip to the lake for the fourth of July and an extended visit from the middle child.

Soos with the fan wall she created that will hang above the check in area where I will greet guests and guide them to the photo booth.IMG_E8657

Games and decorations have been finalized and as always the kids are willing to test new ideas!

A break from planning meant big sister taking little brother out for cinnamon roll French toast. As you can see this was a highlight of his week!IMG_20180629_124344

Mid week it was time to head to the lake for the traditional fourth of July celebration. Things are much quieter these days with fewer guests and simple food. It is always a great time and as usual one of my favorite people was present, KK. When asked how long we had known each other she said it was 1975. She was hired by mom and they became best friends and have been ever since! She and her husband John are truly family.

Fattima decorated the brownie cake mom makes every year, the kids swam and played basketball and then we made our way back to town.

It is basically countdown week for the shower and I will be sharing more throughout the week. As always blessings are numerous along with the many freedoms that our family holds dear!

  7. Everything looks perfect including the lovely silverware. I honestly don’t know how you pulled it off but kudos to you. It looks like a story book wedding it will be. May things continue on the right path with a bit of uncertainty tossed in and the strength of adversity and the luck of the Irish be with you!

    • They amaze me Carrie. I always joke that if I help it will all be stuck together and lopsided! So glad my kids are very detail oriented haha

      • Oh believe me it wouldn’t be much of a joke for me, I stink at being creative and their decorations look store bought as opposed to mine looking like a two year old got into something they shouldn’t have. 🙂
