This little guy has been in Myrtle Beach for the past several days. He and his family are on their way home today.  Joe and Johanna have shared lots of photos and videos while on their trip. 
I've loved seeing all the fun they've been having!
I wish I could figure out how to share this video from Johanna's Instagram....the best
It's worth clicking on... I think it's my favorite share of their trip! 
Here are links to Joe's Instagram and Johanna's Instagram.
There are a lot of really fun photos to see.
Here's a peek at one of my favorites of Elijah...and his donut holder! 
Such a clever boy! is my sister's birthday!
She got a very nice gift this year....her first
grandchild was born earlier this month!!
Happy Birthday Emily!!

Words to Live By

Pretty flowers from Katie's yard...I spent the afternoon helping her with a project last Sunday.  I had to sneak away and take some photos of all the beautiful blooms in her backyard.
There was color everywhere!

This is the day the Lord has made. 
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Busy Weekend

I love it when I have a productive weekend.  Saturday, Bill and I spent the day hanging some new wall art and otherwise adding some color to our living room.

The sunflower painting is a new purchase form Hobby Lobby. I've really been craving some bright colors in this room...this bright area satisfies that craving!
We've had these old window frames hanging above the couch for many years.  On Saturday Bill wired these vintage paint by numbers pieces to them.  I am SO HAPPY with how this looks!

I spent some more time working on the playroom for the littles.  I'm hoping to get it finished this week. The rug is from Ikea...the littles have seen it and they LOVE it!  This is going to be such a bright and happy space! I'm hoping to share photos of all of it soon!

On Sunday, we spent the afternoon and evening working on Katie's laundry room.  When we left, it was a bright and happy space too!
Now it's back to my 9 to 5 job....good thing, 'cause I need a little bit of rest!!  : )

Weekend Wedding and Prayer Request

Katie and Mandy's friends got married last Sunday. 
I borrowed some photos from their Instagrams to share here.

Charlotte has a WONDERFUL time...she kept her heels on until the end of the evening.  
My favorite photos of the bride and groom.  A peek at Mandy's bridesmaid bouquet.

Breakfast for dinner is always yummy!  The cake...and Mickey & Minnie too. 
People always ask my daughters if they're twins. I just never got that...until this photo!  
Charlotte (and family friend Joe) LOVED the sausage meatballs!

While they were enjoying the wedding, I was enjoying this little one.  
Lulu spent the evening with Bill and I at our home.  
She was such a good girl..and she kept us completely amused!

This baby can eat!  Corn, zucchini, celery and red onions...two plates full!  
Plus the bowl of blueberries.  They're her very favorite.

This was the end result...after all the eating and playing that she did.  
I love how babies sleep...especially when their little bottom sticks up in the air!
Sweet girl!!  Lucky Gramma and Grandpa!

I'm not sure how often I'll be posting for a bit.
My eyes have not quite recovered from my cataract surgery.  I work on a computer all day, spending time on it outside the office has proven to be just too  much.  I have a lot of sensitivity to light, burning, and tearing. Plus my eyes are just so tired.
I may continue to resort to simple posts using photos borrowed from my families' Facebook and Instagram feeds....or from my own Instagram.
Sure would appreciate prayers for complete healing for my eyes!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

In My Craft Room - Cubbies

Here's several peeks at the all the junk neat stuff I have tucked away on the two cubbie shelves in my craft room.  I was looking at everything the other day, and realized that a lot of this neat stuff is basically useless. Perhaps I need to do a bit of an just might be time to reevaluate the way I use these two pieces.

Then again...I really do like looking at all of it!  A couple years ago I started sharing peeks inside the cubbies of the blue piece.  Now I'm thinking I might do some re-arranging, subtracting, and adding of all the stuff...and then share items one at a time.  Maybe I'll hold a couple giveaways of the stuff I decide to part with. 

Hope you have a happy Monday. 
It's a hot, sticky one here in Maryland!
A perfect day for "playing" in my air conditioned craft room. If only I didn't have to be at work.  : )
