How to Host a Camping Party

We have hosted some amazing parties at our house.  We have had an Ice Cream Social, a Mexican Fiesta, and a Nerf Gun Party.  A few weeks ago we had a Camping Party for my youngest son, Stephen, who was turning 5.  Traditionally we host a huge party when each child turns 5, 10, and 15.  This has been a huge success and a sense of excitement for all of our children, and this year was no exception.

Summer Progress Report

Hello everyone, I hope you all had an enjoyable summer!  I would like to think that this has been one of the more enjoyable summers by far.  I don’t know if it is because the kids are older or if I am just learning to sit and just enjoy the time we spend together.  Our days were filled with trips to the pool, swimming lessons, cookouts and home projects.  This is my Summer Progress Report so to speak, to give you a glimpse of what we have been working on and why I have been MIA these past few months.

How to Makeover Thrifted Art

If you prefer modernism, impressionism or abstract, there is art out there for everyone…..in your local thrift store or consignment shop.  Personally, I don’t have a favorite, as long as it puts a smile on my face, and doesn’t cost a fortune, I love it.  Recently, I have had great luck finding art at my local secondhand stores and wanted to show you an easy way to makeover thrifted art.
