In December AJ took Drew and Elle to see his parents and I stayed home with the twins (they are in school but the older two are being homeschooled this year so they can do that from anywhere, so while they were gone I gave myself a bunch a house projects I wanted to finish up before the year ended (about a 1/4 of them got done).

- Paint and putty the new kitchen built in (can’t wait to share with you! It was just finished yesterday.)
