Eric's 50th birthday!

Guess who's nifty and turning fifty?'s my sweet husband, Eric! It's his 50th birthday today!
I wanted to throw a big party with a band and everything, but he said he really wanted a quiet birthday with just the family.
So that's what we did!
He requested barbecue steak, baked potatoes, barbecued onions, green salad and rolls for his birthday dinner.
We invited all the kids and Eric's parents, Jim and Alice. Sadly, our son, Cameron, could not make it because he was working.
It was so great to see everyone!
Here's Eric visiting with his Dad and Grayson. It looks like they're talking about something funny!
There's the birthday boy!
Get in's time to eat!!!
Here's Eric's meal all laid out on the "You Are Special Today" plate!

Eric's mother said she really wanted to bring the cake. She picked out a delicious chocolate ice cream cake!
Make a wish!
Happy 50th birthday honey!
Time to open presents!

It's so fun to get together with the family. We are truly blessed with our loving, fun, good natured family! I love them all!
Happy 50th birthday honey! I hope you had a great day and that you'll have a wonderful year! I love you so much and am so thankful that you're my husband and the father of our children!

These boots were made for walk'n!

Look at what I found!!!!
They're darling leopard print puddle boots!
I think they are so sassy.... classy... snappy..... happy..... dashing.... smashing.... charming..... disarming and fun!
And guess what? I found them at Goodwill and they were only $4.99! I looked them up on the internet and found several different kinds that are similar for up to $50.00!!! Whoot whoo!!! Score!!!
Aren't they adorable!
I feel like kick'n up my heels!
I just feel so hip and trendy in them!
Oh my goodness!
I just got an idea!
Remember this cute handbag that I showed you a few weeks ago? Well don't you think it would match perfectly with my new boots?
Yes, it's purrfect! haha!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

Mackenzie and Brittany's Yard

My sister Kathi and I were spending the day together in town and we decided to stop by my son and his wife's house because Kathi had not seen their home yet. Mackenzie was busy working in his yard when we got there. Brittany was not there at the time, she was out state visiting her family.
They have done so much to this place to improve it. Click here to read the story of when they first got it and you can see pictures.
They bought this home right before they got married and have lived here now for about a year and a half. This place was a fixer-upper and needed so much TLC, but it was also such a blessing because they got such a great deal on it!
Here's a "before" picture of the side of the house leading to the back door. Yikes!!! This was taken the weekend they got possession of the house. The people left all of this garbage for them to deal with!
Here's a picture of how it looks now! They have done so much work to this place and it looks so beautiful! The first thing they did, obviously, was to get rid of all of the garbage! They cleaned it and did repair work and then completely transformed the inside. Then the concentrated on the outside. First they painted it this beautiful Robin's egg blue and then got new windows and put trim around all the windows.
Most recently Mackenzie removed all of the old broken cement tiles in the pathway leading to the house and laid down the new gray tiles.
It is so neat and clean looking now! Let's step to the back yard and see what he's up to today!
He's laying a new cement tile pathway out to his shed.
This project takes a lot of work. First he has to lay them all out in a pleasing way and also a practical way. The distance between each step needs to be spaced properly and measured for a comfortable pace for the average person to walk.
He then has to dig the ground out from under each stone so that the stones will be flush with the grass.
He also made Brittany some boxes for a raised vegetable garden.
She will plant many vegetables here in a few weeks!
Brittany planted these pretty flowers in this cute hanging flower box.
I love my son so much and am so very proud of him and his wonderful home that he has made with his wife! It is so heartwarming for me to see my son doing so well and to be so happy with his wife and his home. God has surely blessed them and He has blessed me with them!
