The Guest Room Redo

 Well, our little guest room, which used to be Claire's baby nursery, has a fresh coat of paint, some new wall art, and fresh linens.  Ready for guests!!  My sweet husband panicked when he saw how much the artwork was that I had my eye on from Ballard he copied it best he could!  And I love it! Just waiting for him to sign it...

The cornice was covered with some wallpaper that caught my eye from Seabrook, and I added a bit more to a lonesome frame across the room.  I then went on Etsy and had Single Stone Studios do the Hollingsworth decal for me.  I'm so pleased, because I've always been skeptical of vinyl "wall art." Well, hope the room makes our guests linger for a day or so longer!  Enjoy! 
Love, Gretchen

Happy Birthday and Happy Thanksgiving!

 Well, we've got a lot to celebrate in November, with Lance's Birthday, and Thanksgiving just two weeks after that!  We celebrated Lance's birthday with Bar B Q, strawberry cake, and trick candles (which the kids got a big kick out of!) Lance was not too terribly thrilled about this birthday, seeing as it's his last one in the 30' year should be interesting! Happy Birthday Lance, we love you so very much!

 Well, Claire the pilgrim had a great Thanksgiving Feast with her Kindergarten classmates and their parents.  Lots of wonderful traditional Thanksgiving food was served, and the kids enjoyed themselves thoroughly!
 Claire and her friend Tyee, before digging in.

Lily Grace was all smiles as well! Well, lots to come, so enjoy the photos and Happy Thanksgiving!  We have so much to be grateful for.

Love, Gretchen

A little more Halloween...and softball too!

 Claire having a great time and yummy snack at her class Halloween Party.  It was a great success!
 Jesse, Claire, and neighbors Ryan & Jillian on their way trick or treating....they were joined by Lily Grace, who all had a very successful evening collecting yummy loot!
 Lance was a sub this week for my brother Tommy's softball team.  Lance had a great time and had 5 put outs at 3rd base.  Unfortunately, they lost and the season is over, but Lance hopes to help out again next season.
 Lance smacking that ball!
Well, lots going on this week...field trips and games, promise to post soon!!
