Preparing for baby

With the arrival of baby #5 in 16 weeks, we are making lots of changes in our home.
Here’s what’s going on:

  • Added a laundry room: such a blessing this has been!
  • Cosmetic changes in the kitchen, adding bead board & painting
  • The boy’s are now in one room to make room for baby Olivia.
  • Improving the boy’s closet (I wish we would have taken before pics)
  • Improving the girl’s closet (will definitely take before and after pics)
  • Painting the living room
  • LOTS of reorganizing!!!

As the kids are getting older and they are consuming more food, I am having to make changes with food prep and shopping trips. I feel like we have finally crossed the bridge into “a large family”. I see that as a challenge. It’s fun!!

I am really wanting to replace my 4.5 qt KitchenAid mixer with the 7qt… comes with a pretty big price tag…so I will have to wait.

With all that being said, I hope to blog more than what I have been…but what I blog about will be about all kinds of things not just bento.
Merry Christmas from my kitchen to yours!!
