The good news– my Christmas mantel is finally finished! The bad news– it has been so cloudy outside that I have virtually no natural light, and I cannot get a decent photo to share with you. Which is totally bumming me out, because I’m kinda proud of it. Thankfully my husband and sons oohed and […]

Hello, hello! I have not been the best blogger this week, have I? My boys are out of school for a long weekend. I took the three youngest to my parent’s house on Wednesday and we got back last night. I took my laptop with me, totally planning on posting from there. Obviously I did […]

Slowly but surely the living room is coming together. I think I almost have the shelf above the piano done.  I re- arranged it over a dozen times, and finally realized it needed something tall on it.

We’ve had several weddings in our neighborhood the last few weeks. Usually I just go in on a group gift, but I was feeling like doing something a little more personal.

We had a fabulous day yesterday. It was my 3rd son’s 9th birthday and we spent some time with my parents. He wanted to go see The Lightening Thief, so we went to the matinee. I thought it was a little intense to be PG,  but we all enjoyed it. My older boys said it […]
