Mamatography Week 13 – Month of the Military Child (and projects galore!)

My week started out with a determination to start AND finish a chair re-uppholstery/refinishing project for our four dining room chairs. As you can see, I bought these really nice (but used and scratched/nicked) chairs. I paid $40 for all of them, and set out to make them my own!

Watch out, screws! Joe is going to get you!!!!! LOL


We had a couple days of sibling rivalry over the new Tag Reader books. You know you have a preschooler and a toddler when:

you are constantly taping the pages of tag reader books back together.


But they sure do LOVE one another. They love to dance together – Abbey says “Joseph would you like to be the Prince, and we’ll dance!” So cute.


This week I also made my own kolaches. So delicious!



Some more dancing cuteness from the Silly Bears. . .


And whoo hoo! The finished chair re-appholstery/refinishing project!

Finished ChairI love the way they came out. What do you think?


On Friday morning, Abbey’s class had a parade on the Shipyard to celebrate the Month of the Military Child. We picked up daddy for a special break from work to watch Abbey march in her parade.

“Red, White, and Blue! RED, WHITE, and BLUE!”

That was OUR week. How was YOURS?

  1. I love the chairs – they look amazing! I know what you mean about the siblings…mine are the same…either fighting over something tiny or dancing wildly and laughing together :)
