Happy Birthday Grayson!

Grayson is now 4! He celebrated at In-N-Out with some friends and had a blast.

Do you love the Spiderman cake? My new friend Cassie made this DELICIOUS cake just for him.

This was the best of a group pic we got. I tried to capture the balloons from Sister Garcia. He was so happy with them until... they flew away. Oops!

A little funny fact about Grayson, he LOVES his cousin Brenden. What's funny about that? They've never met. Brenden lives in Texas, is 13(?) years old and autistic which means "he's a big kid and does really funny things". My sister posts youtube videos of him every so often on her blog and if Grayson catches me watching them we have to watch them 5 times before I can move on. So meeting Brenden would be the equivalent of MacKenzie talking to Justin Beiber or Kennedy seeing Rudolp the Red-nosed Reindeer. This morning the first thing Grayson wanted to do after opening his present was to call Brenden. We did and he was already at school, but in response Grayson got a little personalized message this evening. Thanks so much Brenden for making his birthday that much cooler!

painted chairs

I got tired of black chairs. So at the crack of dawn this morning I was at Wal Mart...
buying spray paint. Do you know how hard it is to get the spray paint cabinet open at 6:45am? I'll just tell you it's not easy, but totally worth it! Look how fun these chairs are.

I pulled out my thrift store frames to paint also, you know since I was already gettin' dirty. They're boring bronze, but will look so good with lots of pics in them. I've got to brag about the Boise, ID thrift store OUTLET. That's right the outlet of thrift stores! I got all these frames and a lot of other things for $7 total! So maybe $3 for all these?

My ring looks awesome. 3 different neighbors came to visit while I was making a mess this morning. 2 loved my chairs one rolled her eyes. She's secretly jealous, I know.
