Quick update!

I seem to have NO time these days, but managed to take a few pictures of what we did this week. these chairs have been driving me crazy lately! They used to be in the basement, in a corner, and I didn't care how they looked. but since we moved, we got rid of our old dining set, and have been using this one in the kitchen. so it has made me crazy trying to get the chairs clean. 
So I got this fabric at a great deal at JoAnn's on black friday, to fix them up. I feel so much better now that they are nice and clean looking. I did buy way way too much fabric though. I could probably cover at least 12 more chairs if I wanted to. So I'll have to see if I can come up with another project for the rest of the fabric. 
Sweet Kiersten was jealous of the top I crocheted for Evie. So I had to make her a purple and pink one. Kara wants one too, but I don't know when I'll have time! It will at least be a few weeks.
And finally, after a few weeks of replacing strands, buying more lights, renting ladders, and several times climbing around on the roof, Ben has all the Christmas lights up and working. It looks so fun, but I am already dreading holding the ladder in January and worrying about him up there when we have to take them all down. He is nothing if not dedicated, and I really love the final look!
Ben is picking his mom up from the airport as I type, so we are looking forward to having her here for a few days! and tomorrow we are having a Christmas party, so we are non stop busy right now, as I'm sure is true for most people this month. I'm just trying to make sure I don't forget about anything, especially Ben's birthday next tuesday :0 I noticed that every time I list off all the things we have going on this month to the girls, they have to keep reminding me about that. but I'm sure he won't let me forget.

The kitchen chairs look great now, especially since I was able to see them in person . the tree outside looks so awesome . Ben worked hard on it.

Oh I love all the posts... You guys are staying really busy and the house looks amazing...Josh got ours up right before we went out of town and it was a lot more work and extension cords then we thought. I love the tree in the yard that is covered in lights, it looks amazing. Love and miss you all so much.
