We celebrated Graham's 3rd birthday last Saturday. He really loves fire trucks so I asked the fire department to come to the house to celebrate with us. They were so great and even brought Sparky the Fire Dog! We had a casual, but super fun cookout to celebrate the big Three-ooo!

mother's day baby

Happy 3rd Birthday to my sweet, joy-filled little boy! Graham, you are such a happy little fella and we love you dearly. I cannot think of a better Mother's Day gift!

art in my room

I am sure that I am not alone in that my master bedroom gets the least decorating attention. In my house, it tends to be where everything lands. The rest of my house may seem picked up, but don't venture into our room. That is where the mess hides:). I am slowly and I mean slowly adding and updating our room. We have lived in our house almost two years and I finally hung more art in our room. I have debated what to put on our walls. After lots of contemplating, I decided that we have so many wonderful pictures of our family, so I wanted to use those mixed in with some simple abstract art. I hung a gallery wall with antique gold frames above my dresser. It makes me happy to see these pictures every time I walk in our room now! I also hung the kids' silhouettes with some abstract art that I created. I have something else in mind to replace my handmade art, but this will work for now. My mantra is some progress is better than none.
