Home Improvement Weekend

Grandpa and Grandma Joseph made the trek to Webster this weekend to help us out with some projects around the house. This was a voluntary visit but we sure put them to work! Matt and Grandpa Emil painted the office, painted the wall leading upstairs, hung my mirror, fixed the bathroom door, bought a load of mulch, and did various other fix-ups. Matt made multiple trips to Lowe's, ate lots of cookies, and chased squirrels around the yard. He may have rabies, but that's for another post. Here's some pics of what we did:

Now Matt, watch and learn...

Keep watching Matt...

This is never coming down!

Fresh mulch for the front (more pics to come...)

Wow can I play in that?!

While the guys did the dirty work, the ladies did a LOT of shopping. Mya was a trooper - I think we have a future mall rat on our hands. We hit up the Eastview Mall, Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl's and Target. As well as a pit stop at Starbucks and Auntie Annie's pretzels of course. Just a couple things here..

New pillows for my couch and chair

New rug for entryway

It was a very productive weekend for us. We got so much accomplished in a very short time. Big thanks to Grandpa and Grandma Joe. Not only did they come out to visit, but they brought lots of goods too - cookies, wine, Rum (yummm!), cheese, a step stool so this shorty can reach the top shelves of the cupboards, and an outfit for Mya! We are spoiled. Thank you so much!! We appreciate all of the help.

See you next weekend!

Time for me to nap so mom and dad can draft their football teams
