Ahhh!

Today was a very productive day... I will sleep well tonight!
.
Aside from the exhausting and on-going processes of
growing a whole new person inside of me
and mothering 3 more-than-averagely-active little boys,
.
I finished 4 loads of Laundry
(...all folded and put away!),
.
deep-cleaned 2 more rooms in my house,

.
(I am in the middle of my bi-annual "hard-core-deep-Spring-cleaning"...
I am sorting through every cabinet, drawer, shelf and/or nook and cranny...
I should finish this week!),
.
dusted and vacuumed the entire upstairs
(the rest of the house I cleaned yesterday),
.
assembled and delivered Daynen's Birthday Party Invitations
(except the handful that need to be mailed...
And, by the way, they turned out SO cute... I'll post pictures tomorrow!),
.
finished and posted 2 sets of online proofs
(well, actually, Alli did that... I just helped! Thanks Al!),
.
gave Daynen an impromptu bath in the kitchen sink
.

.(after discovering that he LOVES spaghettios),
.

did a mini-photo-shoot of my big boys cooking dinner,

.

.

and helping with Kitchen chores

.

.
(which I plan to tweak and then frame for a Counter-top Gallery),

.


.

wired 9 Image Panels for hanging,

.

ran a few random errands,

.
bandaged up Kaden after he got what must have been the worst end of a dirt-clod fight...

(at least I hope it was the worst end! Ouch!),

had Coldstone Ice-Cream with the boys and my parents
.

.

(...who surprised us with a visit while they were in town today!),

.

completed the Design Template for the "Legacy Wall" in my Dining Room
(A project I have been working on forever! YEA! I am sooo excited to hang it tomorrow morning and finish it next week! I'll post photos after it's done, for sure!),

.
played peek-a-boo with my littlest monkey,

.
watched Mr. Magorium's Magic Emporium with my bigger monkeys,

( for about 1/2 an hour) until they fell asleep and I
tucked them all into bed,

.

caught up with my blogging friends,


and am about to take a long, hot bath
.

.

(... which I totally earned!)!
Thanks to Alli for her unceasing 12+ hour "shift" at my house...
couldn't have done it all without you, Girl!

GREAT Pictures - they will be so cute for a counter gallery!

I love days like this, it's so good to feel productive. And, I'm glad to hear the spring cleaning is taking place! I know you've been anxious to organize all those closets! I would like photos of how you did it when you're done so I can improve my organized ones ! hehe

AND, I loved that movie - I thought it was so cute!

AND, we got Daynen's birthday invitation last night, it is the darn cutest thing I've ever seen - I love how creative and talented you are.

I am exhausted after just reading that, and I am NOT pregnant!! I do enjoy days of accomplishment like those though!!

I wish we lived closer so you could take a family picture for us! We haven't had a professional one done since Brayden (4) was 6 months old!!! YIKES and now Ella will be ONE!! Hmmm...we'll be there in June!! We'll talk...

So glad to be able to see inside of your cute life!

What the? This looks like my to-do list for a month or two...AND you are pregnant! It's a good thing you prefer to stay busy because you have a busy, busy, life. Thanks for sharing your day and your pictures!
