Happy Birthday Baby!

Olive turned 2 today. I almost can't believe it. I'm finding it to be kind of emotional. These last two years went so fast. She's fast becoming a little girl and not a baby anymore.
 
Olive is....
Ornery
Headstrong
Busy
  Funny
Wild and SO SWEET.
 
Olive's party isn't till next weekend  but Momo and Papa Peterson won't be able to make it so they stopped by tonight with pizza and a present.
 
 
 
 A cute Little People doll house. Olive loves it!
 
 
 
 I stopped by The Ribbon Box Cakery on my lunch break and picked up some cupcakes. The make the biggest most delicious cupcakes.
 
 
 

 
 
 
*Most exciting new today, My best friend had her baby girl today. I'm so excited for them. They will be great parents and I'm so thrilled that our daughters will share a birthday.

Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!
 
Dane's cousins Claire, Elise and Zeke came to watch the parade and see him ride his fourwheeler. Turned out to not be a very nice day. A little cold and drizzly. Typical for Memorial Day though and nothing was going to stop Dane.
 
 
 
 
Seriously so cute. Olive and her older cousins holding hands.
We are so blessed to have such a large family.
AND....Look how big she's getting. Baby Olive is going to be 2 tomorrow!
 
 
 
Here comes Dane!
 
 

 
 
The following photos taken by my friend Jen. Thanks Jen!

The Door


Remember the front door color question? Ok. Here's the house pic my friend requested. See how the screen darkens the door area. The front door is still white (not painted yet) and you can't tell.  We've decided to leave the inside white. We love how it brightened up the space. It was previously a dark purple.



I've been thinking of a mustard yellow color. Maybe like this? Thoughts? Appropriate for a tan house? WOuldnt it play nicely with the red japanese maple? 





and just for fun....my cute ornery little Olive!

Simple Family Fun

The weather has been so nice so we decided to head to some family owned land Sunday afternoon. We had a nice sunny relaxed day spent riding the trails and cooking dinner on the fire. It was so nice.  A great care free afternoon spent with the family. The simple joys of hearing the birds chirping and our children laughing was good for the soul.

Dane Graduates

 
Dane graduated his final year at The Methodist Creative Preschool and is now Kindergarten bound. He'll be attending Benjamin Logan in the fall. These last 5 years went incredibly fast. On to the school bus, back packs, packed lunches, school supply lists, and fun!

Dane refused to tuck his shirt in but still looked charming and dapper and oh so handsome! I'm so glad he has good fashion sense and enjoys looking nice.
(Look at his nervous feet)
 
 
Offically graduated! Dane with his teachers. 
 
 
 
Dane's best preschool buddy Paxton.

Mother's Day

It's safe to say the highlight of Mother's Day was getting to see Obi again. As you can see he was quite the attraction. The cousins got a diaper changing tutorial from Aunt Randi. 
 
 
 
 Obi was passed around like a hot potato. Dane got his cuddle time.
 
 
 Grandma Slemmons got her turn and Olive helped her out.  Isn't the picture adorable. My favorite one of the evening. 
 
 
 Olive thinks Obi is her baby. It turned into a  'Hand That Rocks The Cradle' moment several times as she demanded people to give up their turn and hand the baby over to her instead. Crying "Baby. My Turn, Me hold Baby" over and over.
 
I think she likes him.

Too Much?

After working 12 hrs Brad came home and kindly helped we snap all the chalk lines for the floor. Then he showered and went to bed and I stayed up till midnight taping and painting. It was soooooo worth it. I love it! 











I've been waiting to get the floor done so I could hang the curtains. Ahhhhh. So pretty! You don't think it's too much do ya? Ha! A smidge dramatic perhaps?  I just love it!! 






Today I took the kids to the zoo. We had a great time. The weather is just perfect here! Afterwards i ran to Target to find a shower curtain (i did) I also stumbled across a sheet set from the Nate Berkus collection that is the exact same shade of orange as the curtsins! Major score :)
