Adrielle has wanted a pink room for a long time (she is such a girly girl)...so for part of her birthday present I promised her in January that we would paint it for her. I didn't forget about the promise, but things have just been so busy! I finally made time and asked Poppy to help me out with the idea I had for her room. Poppy made and put up all the "eye-let" trim for her. We were so excited how it turned out. When it was all finished Adrielle was thrilled. She said...: "Oh mommy, I feel like a princess cause this looks like a princess room." I'm so excited she felt that way because she is my little princess. She also has been in a toddler bed until now. She now sleeps in a Victorian bed that her great, great (I really don't know how many greats) Grandfather Rhodus made. We had to get a mattress made for it and had been putting that off forever but now that she is four, it is about time she is out of the toddler bed. It looks so pretty in her room. I hope you enjoy your room sweet girl. And thanks so much Poppy for helping to make it so special for our little princess :)

Today we celebrated Elijah's birthday. We had so much fun. Elijah chose Star Wars as the theme. He was so excited and couldn't wait for the party to start. We had our family and a few friends come for his party. We had the jump house blown up and had a Star Wars pinata. For his birthday he wanted Star Wars Lego's and toys and he had been begging for He-Man toys. He has been so intrigued with Will's old He-Man toy that was stored in our basement and Will told him all about Castle Grey-skull and Snake Mountain. They love to watch old commercials on you tube together and watch episodes of the old cartoons. This really made Elijah becomae a huge fan of He-Man and want the toys, so... Will did a hunt on good Ol' EBay and he found a huge auction lot of stuff for him. Will and I both couldn't wait to see the look on his face when he opened the gift. I think Will couldn't wait to get all the toys out and play with Elijah...they brought back so many memories from Will's childhood. Elijah was so excited about all the He-Man stuff he got and it all was a huge hit with his cousins and friends as well. We had a great time today but I still just can't get used to the fact that I now have a 6 year old boy!

Today is my baby boy's 6th birthday. I can hardly believe he is 6 and will be starting Kindergarten this fall. The time flies by. Elijah got a present in the mail from the May family so we let him open it this morning. We are celebrating his birthday this coming Saturday. I love you Elijah! Happy Birthday Bubby!

Today Elijah and daddy went out to together to buy Elijah his first ever baseball glove for part of his birthday present. He thought he was so big. He loved his new glove, but didn't like practicing with it so much...(He got hit in the face with the baseball trying to catch it when practicing with daddy). Maybe he'll warm up to it again, if we can talk him in to trying it out again. When Will and I went to check on him tonight...this is what we found...
So I think he does really like it.
