"Don't THIS look like the inside of a goat's stomach?"

Over the summer, Z's projects managed to take over our living room. His computer building project found a home on the endtable pictured above.
THEN, we have Z's room cleaning project. He finally overcame one of his OCD issues enough to eliminate some of the 10-year-old toys in his room. They became a lovely centerpiece in our living room.

Fortunately, L and Z decluttered our living room just in the nick of time. We had an unexpected visit from L's family last week. I can tolerate their unexpected visits on the weekend, BUT I wish they wouldn't show up on our doorstep at 8 p.m. on a Tuesday night! We're trying to get our household back on schedule, after a hectic summer. Plus we work and homeschool. We don't have time for overnight guests during the week! These people NEED to get a JOB!

Now that the living room is back to normal, we're hoping to put up our Thanksgiving decorations this weekend.

Looking at that livingroom brings back some pretty amazing memories of slubmer parties there. But I can see where you didnt want company after all that. LOL... I am thankful we dont get company that often lOl.. J's family doesnt come visit because we wotn allow them to smoke in the house and my parents cant afford to come visit but once every year or so. Lots going on here yet. I will post that pix of the kitchen later on today. I just forgot it when i posted the others.

Diana, our house is definitely lived in!

Tweets, our living room wasn't THIS cluttered when all 9 of you girls were partying in there.
It won't be long and your girls will be having slumber parties.

I know. But still looking at the pix just brings back some pretty amazing memories. Yes they are growing up so fast. K's in kindergarden already and learning stuff so quickly already. You are right about on thing temper tantrums work out nicely when you want somethign done. I threw myself one yesterday to get the family room in the basement cleared out. We have been here on month and J kept telling me he wanted to clean the room but he was always to tired so finally yesterday i we cleaned it.
