M-o-m spells "pampered"

My mom is the most wonderful person ever! You might think your mom is better, but you're wrong.  (Maybe that's why I also have the best sisters ever, too?)  She brought her wonderful self to Pueblo for the week and, in her usual fashion, we made a list of things to do while she was here.

#1. Hang out.  Check!
 #2. Organize. 


I don't have a "before" picture of the pantry, but trust me - it wasn't as neat and orderly as this, and there wasn't even nearly this amount of food in it when we started!  So we are seriously awesome.

We kept ourselves very busy and had a GREAT week. I said "I know how I'm going to get by once you're gone, but I sure don't want to!" Sure enough, less than 12 hours alone (Joe is back at work, too) I yelled at my kids, was fatigued to the point of tears, let the kids watch entirely too much TV because I needed a nap, and failed to start my full dishwasher.  Oh well.  Reality, here we come!

You'll do great Kirsta, I have no doubt.

Yay for good visits from mom!

Just so you know, Kalena is SO EXCITED to come visit after Christmas. Like, she talks about it every day.

Mom IS the best! I need to start making a list of things to do in February! Oh wait, no one in the world bounces back from a baby like you do!

Nice organization!
