Busy, Busy, Busy

First of all, I just had to share these!! Are they not the CUTEST things ever?!?! I just couldn't resist!! I can't wait to see Wesleigh in them!!

I've been busy getting all kinds of documents together for our agency so they can plan our trip!! It is all very exciting, but very overwhelming. I applied for the boys' passports the day after Thanksgiving and didn't expedite it because never in a million years did I expect our LOA to come so quickly! Since it did, I'm kind of in a pinch to get them in time to get our visas. All weekend I stressed over it, but today I was able to call the passport office and expedite them today. There is a chance they will be ready by the end of the week!! YAY!!

We had Richard's office party here Saturday. It was fine, but the best part is that it's over!! We have our Santa party Friday and I've threatened the boys that the house had better stay clean! We only invited a few families this year because I just don't have it in me to go all out. It should be alot of fun, and the boys have been looking forward to it for months!

I've started painting! Well, at least I've started the process. I started taping up the trim today and found that high ceilings are great...if you're not the one painting!!! I didn't realize how hard it would be to reach the top of the walls. I can reach it if I'm standing on the top rung of the 8 ft. ladder, but I DON'T like being up that high! In the bathroom, I can't even reach half the room because of the tub! I think I might have to let Richard take over the high parts. I've added a couple of pics that show what the room looks like today. Hopefully, it will look very different soon!

I've been asked where I found those boots. I got them at Gymboree! They have a whole leopard print line right now! Love them!! Also, the pic of the room shows a completely different color than the room really is. It is green right now! The color I'm going to paint it will look alot like this picture. Crazy how that happens.

Love the boots! Do you have updated measurements for Wesleigh? I love the wall color you have now, can't wait to see the finished product. It's great you are going in the winter. We were in those parts in the summer and it was the most terrible heat I have ever felt and we live in Florida!
