Nick and Niko

And this is what these two boys do when they get together . . . wrestle!

The New Van

We got a new (used) van at the end of December. Not because we wanted to. We really liked our old van. But there comes a point when the repairs are costing more than getting a new vehicle. And then the final straw that broke the camel's back . . .
I don't know much about cars. But I have been told this is a piston rod sticking out of the oil pan. Not a good thing.


Thomas and Hannah went to the Sweethearts dance together.
It was fun making the corsage, but it took quite a while because I was out of practice.

My Favorite Bowl

This is my favorite bowl! It use to belong to my Grandma Wright. I smile every time I use it. Isn't it beautiful?!

Something to Smile About

Heavenly and Nick get to come over every couple of weeks for a sleep over. This little girl just warms my heart and makes me smile. I thought I would share a moment with you.

A Big Boy Fort

What age do boys grow out of wanting to build forts? I have no idea! Why? Because my teenage son and his friend recently asked if they could build a fort in the movie room. This fort was a little more complicated than throwing a blanket over a table. It was two stories that included an entry way, master bedroom, theater room, lower bedroom, kitchen, a changing room, a living room, and air conditioning.

I wish this picture could do it justice. It was quite a sight. Here's to having boys!

A New Old Plate

I took Thomas and Hannah to a few thrift stores yesterday to look for roller blades. I had to look through the dishes too. Look at this beautiful old plate I found for my collection. I loved it so much I wanted to buy all four that the store had. It was only $0.99! I think it is my new favorite.
