Project: backdoor

I few days ago i found some old red paint in my shed and i really needed to do something with it. I thought about painting our front door, but i wasn't ready to commit to the red just yet... so i choose to try it out on the back door.
after breakfast (which we ate at Shady Maple today because today is husband's birthday) i took the hardware off the back door and i sanded down the old brown on brown paint and began to take my door from bland to red.i painted one coat then took the boys to volunteer at the food bank at church when i came home i still liked the color so i gave it a second coat. this project was a success now i am wondering what else i can turn red on my house... we will see where tomorrow takes us, maybe the side door will also turn red

Connor's 3rd Bithday!

oh how time is flying! my baby is 3 years old!
Connor wanted a fire truck birthday cake...so i thought i would give it a try

i googled it of course and i found a tutorial that i thought would work...

How to make a fire truck cake

Connor's Cake

I reached out to mothers on facebook for some reassurance that i could do this...and i got great encouragement.. mostly from my high school gals but encouragement is encouragement doesn't matter where it comes from right :)

Connor and i found a new fire truck song! a lovely catchy song which became my mantra and i was humming it as i iced the cake

we had a bunch of family come to his party.

Our house was packed, we had wanted the party to be outside but of course the weather was not cooperating. overall Connor had a great time and a lovely birthday party. I am so thankful to my family for all attending a 3 year old birthday party!

Just the cutest picture ever i had to add it in here somewhere
