Labor Day

Since I didn't go into labor today I figured I might as well spend my time doing some labor. This weekend we installed beadboard and painted McKenna and Lydia's room. (With the help of their very enthusiastic sisters.) I got to use a nail gun, caulk, and paint. I also got all of the baby clothes washed and put away, set up Summer and Emily's bunkbed, and purged and organized their toys. Stay tuned for the finished products. (Assuming that all of my labor doesn't put me into labor....)

Are you kidding? You look great! I think I am already that big and I am only almost half way! Good luck getting all your projects finished before the real labor day comes. :)

Jess, post away those pictures. You will look back and see that motherhood becomes you, that you are beautiful, that working along side your girls should be documented, that our spirits shine no matter how mucky we feel.

You are one hot momma!! :) Seriously, you look great and your darn legs are still SKINNY as ever! YOU ARE LUCKY!! Glad you got so much accomplished. I bet it feels good. Especially right before this baby comes! And maybe, just maybe you will go into labor!! That would be an added plus, right!?? I can't wait to see the finished product. And you are so lucky your ankles dont turn into huge elephant feet like mine do!!!
