Sophia and Markie
Isn't James a cutie? He has the most handsome dimples.
Auntie Ann, Aunt Debbie, and Markie lookin' just like his Daddy.
The wagon. It was a very nice ride with the top to give us shade from the hot sun. South Jersey is much more humid than PA.
The big boys ate blueberries the whole time. Sophia picked a whole quart of blueberries and downed almost every single one before we got home. Noah, well, he's the thirdborn so I parked him close to the bushes and let him pick and eat ripe blueberries, green blueberries, leaves...you ge the idea. He didn't get a stomach ache, but his clothes did have quite a few stains and he was sitting on more than a few berries...oops. :)
Grandma with her kids and grandkids. It's hard to get a picture of five children 5 and under!
Now that the yard sale, de-junking madness is mostly over (It's never really over, but is a lifelong process, but nevertheless the worst of it is over), I am starting to do some decorating. Our bedroom is mostly done, but I need to get some candles for the candle holder thingy and sheers for the windows. Today, my most excellent Mom watched the kids so I could go out and get a few things for our foyer. Lord willing this Saturday Graeme will hang my pictures and the foyer will be done. I can't wait. The undone-ness of this house is really getting on my nerves. I don't care if everything is perfect because it never will be, but some pictures and a little decor really make a house homey. I love it when I walk into our bedroom because there are a couple of things on the walls and it is clean and mostly clutter free. It just makes me feel at home.
Lately I've been loving the Nester. It's interesting to read about all the things she does as she decorates. I've gotten a lot of ideas from her site. I love her slogan, "it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful" and I love the curtain mistreatments. I got two curtains at Ross today for $3.99 each, and I am hoping to "mistreat" our bathroom windows with them. I hope it works and looks nice. So that's what I am up to this week. I also had a banner day at CVS today. I just love me a great bargain. TTFN!
