Merry Christmas 2013!!!

We are really looking forward to Christmas this year. The month of December has flown by and I find myself scrambling to catch up. What happened to the days of being so organized and having all the gifts bought by Thanksgiving??? I guess that's what 2 boys will do to a Mom?

Sweet little Ashley

Ashley, my black pug is now 15 and 1/2 years old. That makes her about 105 in dog years! Wow! I lost my male fawn pug at 13 and 1/2 years and I thought that was old. Ashley is the sweetest, kindest, most loving creature I have ever had. Not one mean bone in her little body.. Every day with her from now on out is a blessing. We love our sweet girl!!!

Big Brother is a Webelos 2 this year and is really enjoying the Scouts. This picture was taken at the Mom and me campout in September.

My little scout

My little man loves the Scouts. He is a Wolf this year and is in a great den with lots of buddies. His Den won the award for best flight time at the rocket derby this October.

Happy 7th Birthday!!!!

My little guy turned 7 this month and we got to celebrate with his first cousins at the beach in NC. His little cousin turned 4 while we were there too. Lots of legos and barbies were scattered around at the end of this day!!!

Cub Scout Day Camp 2013

The boys had a terrific time at Cub Scout Day Camp this year! They did science experiments (even blew some stuff up), shot bb guns, fished, hiked nature trails, archery and catapult wars. It was a week of hot humid days, but was well worth it. The best part was the boys earned lots of cool belt loops and pins just for having fun!

Before and After ~ Dining Chairs

I tried my hand at recycling some old dining chairs and they turned out great! What a fun project and took no time at all. A little sanding, priming, painting, a trip to Hobby Lobby for fabric and a little bit of stapling and I have some brand new chairs.... My inspiration was Lara Spencer from Flea Market Flip (which is my new favorite show BTW). She calls it "upcycling" when she finds something ugly and worn out and gives it new life. I just LOVE her....

Leprechaun Trap

My little guy was so excited about his brand new leprechaun trap. He made it for his first grade class in hopes of catching one the little guys. No luck in catching one this year, but there was evidence that they were running rampant around his school getting into trouble as they went.

and After... I sometimes see something discarded on the side of the road and can't resist it when my mind can see the potential in it. This was one of those times. This cute little metal chair was put out for the trashman and I picked it up and made it something special. With a bit of sanding and red spray paint, my little chair has become a beautiful plant stand. It just makes me happy to look at it!!!

Medieval Times 2013

The Grandparents treated us to an evening at Medieval Times a few months ago. The boys LOVE that place and the show is really entertaining. The food is so yummy and the fancy drinks were not too bad either!

10th Birthday!!!!

Big Brother turned 10 this past February! He's such a grown up kid now with his own opinions, feelings, likes and dislikes. He wanted only his best buds to come over and to have an ice skating party. He and little brother have gotten pretty darn good at ice skating too. It was a great time enjoyed by all. Happy Birthday to my BIG BOY!!!!

SEWE 2013

We attended the South Eastern Wildlife Expo last month with my Dad. We saw so many wonderful things, including birds, lots and lots of doggies, Dock Dogs jumping and swimming, art, hunting knives and guns, and so much more. The weather was beautiful and it was a fun weekend for all involved.

Go Celtics!!!!

Big Brother had a fabulous (first time-playing) basketball season! The 9 year old boys team won 12 straight games and never lost even one! Each game was played with lots of heart and the boys gave it their all. Our team won the Regular Season trophy and the Championship Title! It was a GREAT First Basketball Season for all of the boys and their families!!!!
