This summer I have been glued to the tube every Saturday afternoon @ 2:00 for Find Your Style on HGTV. Well really the DVR picks it up and at some point over the weekend I find time to replay it! Talk about the best show. I don't think I have seen an episode that I didn't just love. I so wish I could have Karen McAloon come help me make over a room in my home. So just in case you have missed an episode or two here are some of my favorite results! Enjoy!

- I have been itching to put out pumpkins, and this twist on the carved pumpkin hasn't helped matters any. Too cute, a monogrammed pumpkin! I think it will be a must do! I have a few other ideas for pumpkin decorating with the kids! Pictures to come!

I finally got all of the frames I wanted for our new pictures. Now to arrange them. The first try, I hung them up on the wall, something just was not quite right. See below.

Today was my sisters only baby's (so far) 1st birthday party. It was so much fun. My kids love their little cousin Cannon. Kate (my sis) had some large inflatable toys that were great for the kids! They bounced and crawled the afternoon away. What a BLAST! Isn't he a cutie! CLEAN: NOT SO CLEAN: This is one of my favorites. Rhett in the bouncer!
Thanks sis for letting us be a part of this special day!

Okay so I have been drooling over these shoes all summer, but would never lay down the $75 price tag. Cute and comfy for work, yes they are! So as I thought I would browse the ugly comfort shoe isle at Dillards.com I happened across my shoes, ON SALE! I was able to get these puppies for $45! Now I am kind of a cheap scape, but I wasn't going to procrastinate on this deal! I am so excited! What do ya think?

Another great idea from one mommy to another. Thanks Ashley, again. The boys had a great time with this little box city. We cover boxes (diaper box, popcorn box) with the back side of wrapping paper to make stores and places to visit. Rhett and Jude had a ball driving there cars up and down the street visiting all of their favorite places without leaving home. We had to have a beauty shop, toy store and Barnes and Noble. Funny huh!
As you may know we like the zoo. Cheap entertainment for the kids. With the weather more mild we decided to make a weekend trip. The Chimpanzees put on quiet a show, running and making noise. The highlight of the visit was the train ride. Note to self: a round trip token is worth it. You see the train ride was not nearly long enough for the kids. Every one of them were whining to stay on, even Blair! So here are a few pics to share.

Today the twins actually took a nap, which allowed me to have some time to spend with Rhett doing BIG boy things. So I had bought some finger paint and have been wanting some cute things for their room, I am finally going to get together. So here is Mr. Artist in his apron, I made in High School no less. Looking pretty handsome.

When I had my first baby I knew I was destined for some big things. I had this feeling deep down in my gut. I knew I was not going to be sending him (or any of my kiddos) off to kindergarten, but instead to teach them at home. It is amazing to me every day all the questions that Rhett asks me and how very much he is learning just by that. Today we were talking about baking brownies and he asked if we could cut them into triangles instead of squares. There we go learning our shapes. Sometimes I let this awesome responsibility overwhelm me. How blessed am I? To get to be there to see each one of them learn to read, write their name and countless other things. I am truly excited about this journey we are embarking on together. As the twins are growing they too are eager to learn. Little sponges they are!
I want to send out a little love to all my teacher friends and my homeschooling friends. Thanks for the support and encouragement! Love you guys!

Tonight while perusing the web I came across this really great site www.thecutestblogontheblock.com. Talk about living up to it's name. So many cute things only 1 blog! So I thought I would share this new found T-riffic site! Hope you all enjoy looking over it as much as I did. Of course I like changing things around on my site as much as I like rearranging my house! Just as the hubs! Have a great weekend!
