i had a blast with elijah's "all things with wheels" party.
he is in absolute love with trains, planes, bikes, and cars so we had all of his friends over for a riding party. we closed off the street and let them loose.

he dove face first, no hands into his cake

WOW! now where to put it all

deserted bikes for cupcake time

juju and pops got e a train table, needless to say it is a major hit
grandpa and grandma got him a thomas play tent, he will not let me put it away- loves it

total elation

deck the halls

i love decorating for christmas, growing up our mom always decorated the house friday after thanksgiving, so now i do too. she is where i got my love of design and creativity.
i love making bunting/ penants
so this year i decided i didn't want to move that huge pot, so i simply stuffed my tree in it. i like it, and it keeps little fingers a bit further away

so, at my craft club night i started making this wreath, which i'm quite happy with, but i left that night with it half done and i'm pretty sure everyone thought it was a just awful.
i copied it from this blog, it's strips of polar fleece hot glued to a wreath form.
super easy, super cheap

patrick the builder

since moving into this house we have wanted a deck out back, our old "quaint" rock patio was a danger zone. everyone was always tripping, or nearly falling out the back door because the stairs were at an angle. it was a liability.
seriously, a danger zone
patrick and garrett jackhammered the entire patio so that the deck would be perfectly level.

the last board!

it is perfect! i love it! my husband is amazing!

i am so proud of patrick, he can do anything he sets his mind to.
thank you garrett, you are awesome
