Best Mother’s Day Present

Our siding got delivered last week


My family came up to rip and paint it. Somehow tree removal happened as well, even though it wasn’t on the list. Our neighbor got in on the action too, probably to make sure we didn’t crash his house.

We also finished taking down our fence

At the end of the day there was a lot of eating and talking and then these two cool uncles took Liam to a late night movie. It was the first time ever Liam had to wake us up to let us know he was home. He was wiped out.


Abundant Life Stoves came and delivered the pellet stove which looks beautiful on the gorgeous hearth.

Yes, I wrote on the floors and I wrote Liam’s birth story on his door frame. He knows it by heart as we talk him through the day every year on his birthday.

Today we finished putting the floors down in the living room and it looks absolutely beautiful! And I got to use the smashing nail gun. It’s super fun!

I actually only worked on the floors for a few minutes. Mostly I was preparing myself for the best mother’s day present ever. Liam is sleeping in his new room tonight under the skylight, and tomorrow night Aidan gets to sleep in his new room which I started to clear out today. All of this means – I get my bedroom back!

Happy Mother’s Day to me!! And you too!!
