Spring Cleaning - Week 1 - Entry - THE AFTER

I joined Sarah in Spring Cleaning the entry this week and I was successful!!!    If you want to see how bad things looked before, go right ahead . . . but be forewarned, it was reeaallllyy bad!

I started off scrubbing the doors down and washing the rugs.  I don't have any pictures of it . . . you really wouldn't be able to tell a difference from the pictures.  But, boy could I tell a difference!!!

Then I moved on to our coat closet.   I got rid of several coats and shoes, got rid of any games that were missing pieces, and scrubbed everything down!  I'm pretty pleased with the after . . . we'll see how long it stays this way!!  Here's my pictures:




The best part of cleaning was finding our old video camera in the closet.   I plugged it in to see if it still worked, thinking the boys would really enjoy making their own videos.  There was a tape in the camera - with video from back when Rachel was a baby!   We've spent hours over the last several days watching these old videos.  I can't believe how much the kids have grown!  Here is a video of us watching a video:


  1. Good job! Feels good doesn't it.

  2. Everything looks great!!! I always find things I thought I had lost or that I didn't even remember I had! I love it!

    And as much as I love the boys, I am glad to get rid of their dirty prints off on my walls and doors...

    Thanks for linking up!!! :)

  3. Looks great. And the video was cute.

  4. Yahoo, one area many to go??? It is amazing how much us mommy's can get done is week huh?

  5. Looks great! I'm absolutely loving this. It feels so good to get things cleaned out, doesn't it?! I look forward to seeing your other areas and how they're transformed!

  6. Looks great! I love watching old movies too!! They look so small on the video!
