yes, i’ve been silent for a few days. i’ve been fall break, and am still recovering! the kids and i headed up to winter park last wednesday, followed by janna and her kids on thursday, then erin and her little guy on friday, then the boys came up on friday night. honestly, it was the best weekend ever. 7 kids, 5 adults (we missed you jj), a dog……and we all fit beautifully. at one point i just wanted to sit and cry because as we’ve dreamed of having a mountain property for the last 10 years, THIS is what i had always dreamed and imagined.
kids around a table.
impromptu dance parties.
did i mention food?
oh, and i made another lampshade like the one in my house. the table up there was just SCREAMING for one. so i really didn’t take a lot of pictures, and the ones that i did honestly i don’t think are that great, but i love the memories. my camera was OFF most of the weekend, and i didn’t even turn my computer on. just engaged with my children, my friends and family, and got crafty.
it was good. really good.
