Pictures, Pictures, and You Guessed it, More Pictures!


They say a picture is worth a thousand words...so I have included a lot of pictures in this post, and few words....I think you'll all get the gist....this is what I have been up to in the month of April. First up, more lovely photo's from my day with the Pfattie's~



I was sneaky and snapped a pic of Iva and Colleen when they weren't looking ....shhhhhhh don't tell! :) They both found some fabulous treasures that day!









And here they are...the Pfattie's!
My little guy isn't so little anymore...Simon turned 5 on Monday the 28th....Happy Birthday Simon! :) Oh, and if you're wondering why there are more than 5 candle's on the cake, it's because we celebrated my mom's birthday too, which was on the 26th.
Roller coaster fun with Dad.....
Hangin' with Spongebob at Great America!
Being silly with Mom.....
Updated mural pictures....




This painting represents the preschool that Simon attends....it's a work in progress, designed by one of his classmates, a talented 5 year old girl named Jamie
Here is the start of my Thomas the Tank painting..Simon Loves Thomas!
This is the school district logo...we painted it on a separate board and then mounted it to the wall
Here's how it looks currently~

Sylvia,
I cannot believe you can make so many pieces, juggle a very cute 5 year old, manage a home, and blog. How do you do it? BTW, I love your jewelry and gocco items in your etsy shop!

Lana said...

Oh my Sylvia! So THIS is where you've been? Look at all those trims and apothecary jars ~ wish we had flea markets like that around here. Looks like you had fun with the group. The mural is looking awesome ~ you should be proud! And happy late birthday to your sweet Simon and dear Mom.
Take Care & God Bless,
Lana

p.s. Your new jewelry pieces are beautiful!
