Changed things around a bit today

These aren't new but I never posted my cabinets after the crazy, draining, tiring cabinet painting experience. They used to be natural maple, very nice, just not me. Now they are white and I love them.

I bought this table years ago at the Rose Bowl. It was our first table after we got married. I had stored it in the garage as one of my work tables. Today we brought it in the house, exchanged tables. I love it! Eventually we will change them back, but change is good.

I bought this as one on my favorite stores. Its a HUGE framed chalk board. Love it!

Hubby hung it here today. Not quite finished yet, needs something along the top. But I love it.

Let's see, what else can I change around here.

at night.
We had so much fun.
I had no idea that the fire work show was so popular.
My kiddos have never seen fireworks, sad I know.
We arrived at Disneyland around 7:30/8:00pm
There were people already sitting, waiting, reserving spots for the show.
We ended up getting great seats. The show was fabulous.
Our kids loved it.

they got a few rides in while i held our bench down.

family shot. sophia and, what i call, her smokey eyes.

they went a little to fast for sophia.

love these people.

it was a beautiful night.

waiting for the firework show. the music had just started.

love these girls!

hope your weekend was great.

A WoNdErFuL success

Camp {Cre8}

creativity + independence = confidence

Wednesday was a day to finish our affirmation cards.
And to create Whimsical Jars to store them in.
The girls had the best time and the jars were out of this world wonderful.

Affirmation card. Don't cha just love it!

Nancy leading the day.

These are one of my favorite shots of the entire camp.

Whimsical jars made by the girls.

Aren't they beautiful.

It's hard to explain the week. It was so wonderful.
For example.
When one would raise their hand and ask
"Can I do it this way?"
I automatically would say back
"Who's the artist today"
And 13-15 girls would yell back in their loudest voices
"Who makes the decisions today?"
There is something about that.
They were so strong in there choices.
It was wonderful.
Thats my word to describe it.
