Celebrate every success

My dear son came to me SO PROUD today and said that he wanted to show me something he'd been working on. I felt a bit of trepidation when he directed me to the bathroom, but since he's never shown any interest in sharing bowel movement accomplishments, I was pretty sure it wasn't excrement related. As it turned out, it could have been so much worse. 

No punishment was administered. He worked really hard at making this bubble mountain and who was I to take that glory away from him?

The gutting of the house

 We know that our time in this house is limited, but that's all we know at this point. Actually, we do know what we've got several months left here...okay, that's really all. The overwhelming challenge of packing up this place that has housed 7 pack rats is seriously freaking me out, SO in a preemptive strike type action I've decided to first purge and organize as much as I can. Hopefully this will help.
 First step has been my office/craft room/playroom/dump. Here's the first reveal. Lookin' good!
I grabbed a broken old cabinet and used the base for the ribbon hanger. Neato, huh? I decorated an old box of Costco greeting cards to hold craft paper and I LOVE it. The FAITH banner is from a church activity. I'm not loving it there, so it might come down. It's a little cluttery I'm thinkin. 

Have I cleaned under my desk you ask? You can see the floor, but that's as far as it's gotten.

I totally made this necklace. Really, I did. Mackenzie has a similiar one that I LOVE and I copied.

Save the last dance....

I know that these are totally out of order and a big mess, but I couldn't wait to post the ones that we have. I can't wait to get more from the other moms. These two just looked so adorable together, and I'm still SO happy that she went with one of her great friends and a very fun kid. I really can't get over how cute they were. Except for the fact that they look like siblings (that's a little freaky)...other than that, a wonderful Senior Prom to wrap up her amazing 4 years in High School. Not to mention being on the Prom Court...that was SO EXCITING. What a great year!!!
