I survived!

I have survived the weekend!!! It's now 4pm and the last one has gone home. I think they all had a blast! My house is a total mess! But I will work on that tomorrow, right now I just need some down time. Today is actually Andrew's birthday, he is 15! Here is a photo of his cake, it has a fishing theme, it is hard to see but it does have fish in the water.

This is a photo of some of them. Andrew and Hunter are making silly faces. Andrew is sitting in my sister's lap and Hunter is with Crystal, which is my sister's best friend. There are 2 boys missing from the photo, I tried to find a photo with them all in it, but I didn't have one. I had a total of 7 boys here, that is counting my 2.
Here is a photo of our house progress. We finally got the plywood and house wrap on the bottom floor. You can't tell it from the photo but we have started putting down the subfloor on the second story. We will cut out the holes for the windows after we get the roof on. We have them done, they are just covered up right now with the plywood. It is slow going, but we will get it finished someday...Hopefully I can get back to quilting this week! At least I hope to. Tomorrow is my quilt guild meeting at 10am, so I am excited about that. We will be discussing a mystery quilt project.

My boys never had that many friends stay over at one time but my daughter had slumber parties. I think that I'd rather have 7 boys than 7 girls for the weekend!

You are such a brave woman. I can do the group thing with girls, but the boys kill me. Get some rest now. You certainly deserve it. It's gotta be exciting to see the steps of the house going together.

Thanks for sharing, Kristie. I know it meant a lot to Andrew for you to let him have so many of his friends over, and it was a great gift from you, as he will always remember it and appreciate you for doing this for him. You are a great mom. I loved the picture, and the cake was fantastic!
