A Haircut...

Although, I love Roen's hair a bit long, I love him with short hair as well, because I feel like I can see his sweet little face better. With the temperatures rising outside, I started feeling sorry for him every time he came inside with hair matted to his forhead with sweat..

So I gave him a little haircut...

A New Piece of Furniture...

Early last week, a piece of furniture I ordered months ago finally came in. There is a HUGE blank wall in our living room that needed some warmth. I picked this piece out of a magazine and though I never saw it in person, I just had a feeling it would work magic on this wall.

Micah thought it would be too big and in the way... I always hate it when he wants to make me doubt the things I know will work. Because of his feeling I have been anticipating it's arrival with excitement and nerves. If it was wrong in the space, there was literally nowhere in the house it would work and I had no idea what would come of it.

But... it is absolutely PERFECT!

If I could have built a piece for this wall, it would have been identical! It has a little charm of it's own that I just adore.

Here it is blank...



I have already filled several nooks and have big plans for the top. It will be finished being decorated soon and then I will share.

It is about 65 inches wide and comes to my chin... it is most defiantly the focal point of the room now.

Teeny Weeny Olympics...

Today the boys participated the annual Teeny Weeny Olympics at school. Remi had a BLAST. Everytime I saw him there was a smile on his face and he was laughing like it was the best day ever.

Roen had fun at first. He never really opens up fully around large groups, so he was very reserved, but I caught a few smiles. After getting hit in the face with a bubble wand, he was done. From then on out, he decided he wanted to go home and refused to participate and was glued to Mommy... I figured this might happen.

It was beautiful weather and afterwards, I took the boys to lunch and the Farmer's Market. It was a sweet day with my two favorite boys!

(There were several water activities, so I put them in the swim trunks)

Carrying their torches...





Tug-o-war with his teacher...



Loving that Daddy got to come...



The best picture of them wearing their medals I could get...



Friends that also go to church with us...

The Girl Next Door...

From the minute they wake up until 3:45, the boys ask non-stop 'Is Caroline home yet?' Most days, they meet her as she gets off the bus. A lot of times they follow her into her house and wait until she finishes her homework to come play.

They sure do love their sweet Caroline...



This is them yesterday... sweeping the shop for fun :)

Sweet Art....

Well, I finally got around to buying new frames and hanging my food art.

Awhile back, I shared the sweet little candy paintings I purchased from a local artist. I also purchased these sweet little donuts. Because the head table chairs are teal and the large piece of art I already have hanging is mainly pink, these four little paintings are a perfectly sweet addition to my dinning room..

This is What Happens....

This is what happens when I get on the phone...





Feeding Cheeze-Its to three new 'pet' worms caught in the backyard. Not to mention the mud and dirt all over the floor and countertops... next I seem a bit distracted on the phone, this is why.

Remi named them Rolli, Roller Skates and Plant Eater.

Helping Daddy...

Several days ago, Remi got his backpack strap caught in his bike wheel and the brakes on Roen's bike were messed up....

These little 'fixes' resulted in two very happy little boys getting to use Daddy's tools!

Sweet Succulents....

I LOVE nooks.

Little corners and spaces that feel a bit magical where I can nestle myself in of world of seclusion. Our back porch has turned into one of these places for me. We have a TV back there so I will often watch TV or read while the boys play outside. During this time of year, it is the most perfect weather! But, in order for my nook to be at it's full potential, it needs a little sprucing up. I have ordered several little 'nook fillers' that should arrive soon, but this purchase is probably my favorite...



These plants seem pretty hardy, so I'm hoping they will be around for awhile. Plus, the ceramic bowls were created by a local artist... I just love 'one of a kind' jewels!
