How to Entice Family to Help With Construction Projects

My husband's sister and her cute family came to visit us, get pictures taken and help us with our massively out of control flooring project.  Said project is why I've been lacking in number of posts of late.  I have many things I would like to blog about but I've been spending every last minute on the house and living.  My next post will be a short story dealing with construction mishaps.  It's a nail-biter.  Stay tuned... 

We had a fun quick visit with cousins, made them sleep in strange, construction-induced chaos while they visited and shopped at Ikea while the menfolk worked.

Also, we decided to try out a new photo spot and upon arriving, were told we only had about 30 min before the trails were shut down.  Curses.  So we were all fabulous and snapped and smiled and succeeded in record time.  Phew.

Luckily I got a beautifully orchestrated Zoolander pose from the parents as well.  I didn't even tell them too.  They just pulled those poses out for me.  Such talent.


  1. Cute family! I love the outfits and I love the new photo spot!

  2. Heck, I would print the candid photo of C&J and give it to them as a white elephant gift next year :) Perfect!
