7 years ago today...

my life changed forever for the better.  I will never forget how scary it was to be a new mom, how I just knew I was gonna break him.  I could never let Joshua cry much, I mean back then, I had nothing else to do but hold my sweet baby.  He was and IS my pancake:) 

I hope and pray he continues to be the beautiful boy {inside and out} that he is today.
Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!
"I love you to the moon and back, moon and back, moon and back!"

Our Foyer:)

I'm showing off my foyer today at Kelly's Korner.  I very much like this spot in our home, sometimes it feels dark to me, but I do LOVE it!

In the door on the left...

The view looking back...

I've had the red wall since we moved in 4 years ago and I really like it!  It is a great pop of color!

Lots of pics in our entry:))

I LOVE this little shelf, got it at Hobby Lobby lots of years ago:)

This dresser is a family antique and my foyer would not work without it.  I LOVE it for seasonal decor and more often that not...Laundry!!  It often houses stacks of clean little boy clothes:)) 

Right now it is decorated for J's Avenger Bday party:)  My baby is about to be 7!!

A very necessary hall closet on the left...

Our family pic...
The whole view!  See the awesome chair my BFF and I did...it is for sale!!
{and of course the Iron Man helmet is there b/c of our Avenger theme:))}

So...going with that theme...here is our mantle.  I'm only showing it b/c I did not link up for mantles.  A little more AVENGER goods:))) 

We are a bit excited for Bdays around here!!
Thanks for looking at our foyer!!

Summertime FUN:)

If you know me, you know I LOVE summertime!  I love having fun filled, busy days, making lots of memories. 

The one below was Friday...to start the day, we all went to our favorite splash pad in Roanoke with our best friends:)))
Then...that afternoon...after naps of course (my favorite part of the day), Uncle Bubba and Ken came over and we went to a local library to see Max from "Max and Ruby."
Keegan, Kennedy, Joshua and Maddy:)

I cannot see this bunny without singing the song..."Max and Ruby, doo la doo doo doo doo doo, Ruby and Max..." 
K LOVED him!!

So cute!
A little craft time:)

A sweet group picture outside on the bench.
Ha, Ha..the irony!
{completely unintentional}
Maddy got to stay for the evening with us:) 
Spaghetti dinner and movie time!

LOVE these two!


Then....On Saturday Krys and I took the boys to Bedford Splash!  It was our 1st visit and SO much FUN!!  Something for everyone!

K lOvEd this little slide...he got a little too brave at one point and tried to crawl back up it.  K and the lifeguard became BFF's:)

Joshua had a wonderful time too.  A great big slide that he did SOOO well, lily pad jumping, and lots of swimming.  I'm so proud of this boy:)))

Then....after our fun day in the sun...I did a little shoppin!  Found the cutest OWL necklace to start off my school year:))

And then Today...we are cleaning, organizing, and trashing stuff!!!  I feel the urge to get this casa completely organized.  So, I have a FULL trash can, I will have a FULL car to go to Goodwill, and my BRAIN is completely fried!!

A great weekend!
