The First Day of First Grade!

2012 MISC 073

Zach went to school on the first day of school with a swollen “whip”!  It was no fun!

2012 MISC 068 

He had a good day in spite of it all!  He was so happy to be at school with his friends, Sara and Alex.

Vacation 2012!

 2012 MISC 002

We enjoyed a great time together with our little family in Branson.  We headed up to Springfield to eat at Lamberts.

Zach has developed a taste for coffee since his dad has been drinking it a little lately.

Zach and his dad enjoyed a ride on the Ducks….I chose to shop for an hour.  Zach loved the gift shop at Ride the Ducks.

Fall Favorites!

     2012 MISC 089

I love Mr. Rooster behind the pumpkin arrangement. 

2012 MISC 093

I really liked this wreath in my entryway last year, so I decided to use it again.  However, I used 2 lamps and some shiny pumpkins. 

2012 MISC 041

This is an arrangement in the living room on the coffee table.

I’m having a hard time getting used to the darker mantle in this rent house.  I think I would like it either darker brown or white. 

2012 MISC 092

Well, I just posted a sneak shots because I said I would.  I have a few more things I want to do before I show you everything! 

Happy Fall, ya’ll!

It’s full steam ahead!

 2012 MISC 004

It is hard to believe how quickly a home can be built.  They just started building this house a little over 2 weeks ago, and it’s getting exciting! 

2012 MISC 006

Zach’s on his way to find his room! 

 2012 MISC 0072012 MISC 012

And…..Dad’s Media Room!  :)

2012 MISC 010

I think I am going to love the ceiling in our room! 

It’s going to be awesome!   If life would slow down a bit, I think I could enjoy the excitement of this chapter in our life.  But, that never seems to happen around here.

Zach’s Angry Birds!

2012 MISC 034 2012 MISC 033

A couple of weeks ago, Zach watched a video of a little boy making clay models of Angry Birds, and he wanted to make his own.  So, I told him he could make them the next morning.  The first thing that came out of his mouth when he awoke the next morning was that he wanted to make his Angry Birds.  I pulled out a box of modeling clay and off to work he went.  I think he did a pretty awesome job!  :)

I love Fall Decorating!

Welcome!  I thought I’d make a post on some of my favorite fall decorations from last year!  I’ve already decorated for fall and will be sharing it soon.
