My Salvaged Fireplace Mantle

First, thank you so much for all of the positive feedback in regards last weeks post Even though I have not been posting consistently, it makes my heart happy to know that you still care and like to read my blog.  In my last post, I forgot about my salvaged fireplace mantle that we installed in my office last year.  It was a project that required a little more patience and ingenuity than the norm, but the results were totally worth it.

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.
