Something Borrowed??

So again, going along with the month long theme, of something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. This week we are on something borrowed. This one is easy for me. My husband and I have owned our home for just over a year, and there are many things that we do not own ourselves yet, like rakes, special tools for developing our basement, power washers, and vacuums for the vehicles (ours constantly rotates on the bottom, so it can't be used outside)
this is something that we borrowed recently, we spent many hours on Saturday cleaning out our vehicle, both in side and out, and this is the all in one machine that helped us do it. Our cars do look really pretty, at least for today!

But, my favorite thing to borrow is my brother!
I know he may look a little young, but he is 16, and loves spending time with his friends, but is always willing to help out. I am the mission home cook, so every couple of weeks when big meals come up I "borrow" my brother to play with my too munchkins and keep them busy until my husband is done his work day. What wonderful siblings I have!

It is so great when you can borrow someone to play with the kids while you get something done. that is an excellent something borrowed.

You don't want to see the state of our minivan. Yikes.

That's so great that you have a brother to help out. When ever I'm with my family, my littlest brother is always willing to help with the kids too. Aren't brothers great!

I wish I had a sibling around to "borrow" for baby-sitting. Lucky you!

I have absolutely no idea how that thing worked that you borrowed. Never seen anything like it.
