On Fire!

I don't know where he got the motivation from but my hubby was on fire this weekend. He stained the deck, built a raised garden for me and the kids, and added a backsplash in our kitchen. My only request for the weekend was the garden but he must of not thought that was good enough because he went for that and more.

The garden turned out great and the kids had a great time planting and watering it. Gracie was the most excited and kept saying "Such a beautiful garden!" I am hoping this serves as a lesson to the kids about eating healthy, not being wasteful of food and most importantly helping out our local food bank. We can't wait to see those buds sprouting!

However, the project of the weekend was the backsplash and it is FANTASTIC! It has changed the room more than I had imagined and I absolutely love it. Sometimes I just catch myself staring and quietly cursing that we waited this long to install one. When we first moved in it was on the list but it was probably forgotten about when I lost the list. ;)

Gracie felt jealous and requested I take her picture with her using her pose with not actually use.

This one just cracks me up!

I love how when I ask them to take a picture together, they not only stand real close but they put their arms around each other. Makes this mommy's heart happy!
