6 Months Old

Julia Karen is 6 months old. She is 17.1 lbs and 27.5 inches tall. She is rolling all over the place and starting to sit on her own. She loves her family and laughs all the time. She is the sunshine of our days.

Trey's Preschool Graduation

Today Trey graduated from preschool. It was a great day. We will miss his teachers and friends so much as everyone heads off to different schools next year.

I am very devoted to this little preschool - I worked there as a music teacher when I was pregnant with Trey and today he walked the stage five years later.

Songs were sung, pictures taken, food devoured, presents given and smiles all around - maybe a few tears. (Lars mockingly kept saying "I told myself I wasn't going to cry" all the while laughing with the boys like they had a private joke)!

Here are a few pictures from our day.

Trey's biggest fan and best friend - his little brother. Toby also performed today, but it took a little coaxing. Alright it took a bribe of a water gun. Toby started crying as soon as he saw us and started to refuse to go up on stage. Lars said quietly but firmly - "no water gun then" I looked at the people sitting next to us, embarrassed that we were bribing/forcing our child to perform. I was relieved that it was a Korean couple that don't speak much English. As soon as Toby was done performing he ran to us and the Korean man leaned down and asked Toby "Was it worth it for a water gun?" Busted. We bribe because we love....

Trey can't wait to sleep with his "friendship pillowcase".

So - I love to create things. For some reason I get a high from cleaning my house and making things. I have had a little home decor boutique (can I call it that? - hmmm, that reminds me I am 11 days late on rent...) for about a year and a half now and it is fun, but a friend recently talked to me about taking this passion and stepping it up a bit.

Step it up a bit we did! You can check out our business at We have been nuts. In the last 6 weeks we have had 4 events going on. We have more scheduled for August and September already.

If you had stopped by my house last week you would have seen a dining room table and hard wood floors that looked ruined from paint as well as multiple jeans of mine covered in vinyl scraps - I was loving it! Honestly at one point my dining room had 30+ boards in all different colors flanking the walls and chairs and I'm pretty sure I went quite a few days without a shower and my hair tucked under a baseball cap all so that we could get people their orders by Mothers Day.

So that is what has been going on around here. I'd love to hear any comments or ideas on things we should add to our catalog.
