My New Old Dining Room Table

Here are my before and after pictures of my dining room. My poor poor dining room table has finally gone to the great big table heaven. This poor table has been drawn on, spilled on, painted on, and cut on and it looked like crap. It was 9 years old and showed every day of use, we couldn't even fit all of us at the table for dinner. We even had two plastic folding chairs filling in where old chairs had broken. Well my parents decided to buy a new table, they have been looking for at least 2 years but haven't been able to decide on one, well they finally did and so I got their old one. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is the most beautiful table ever! (okay not really but it is much better than what we had. So thanks Dad and Michele for our new - used table.

Family Night Out

One of the things that I liked to do when I was younger was ice skate. Well like every other Mom out there I haven't found the time to go in a very long time. Abby had seen my ice skates in the closet and had beg me for months to take her. So for family night last week we decides to go ice skating (despite Kelly and Aiden wanting to do something else more boyish). It was so much fun! They have these little walker like things that helped the kids skate all by themselves. It was a great adventure with only one little fall (Abby fell when she tried to show us she could do it without any help). While I may not be as good as I used to it was a great family outing that we hope to repeat in the future.
