The Sun....and Vintage Stuff

We know the sun is out there but we have seen very little of it for the past week. Yesterday it surprised me when it paid a visit in the afternoon. I loved it!!

Shadows, yes!! 

Our neighborhood is beautiful this time of year with dogwoods and azaleas. This year it's been rainy and cool for weeks so it's harder to enjoy the beauty. 

Today it's, you guessed it, rainy and cold. It's about 54 degrees at noon. 

Sunny and warm is still several days away.

In other news.....

We have an old trough that was on our porch at the other house. Dale acquired an old pump from someone he did work for......so now we have an item :)

He wants to make a water feature with this item. He would like to put it in the front of our house. Not sure about that so I went searching on Pinterest for some ideas. 

* the pictures I posted are not working. Tried twice and they won't show. :(

* Trying again....third time the charm??

Cool, yes?!

We have some old chairs like these that need painted....

Maybe we will paint our chairs yellow :)

I love old stuff. Time to fix up some of the beauties we brought with us. Time to get them out of storage in Dale's shop and use them!

Enjoy your Tuesday! I'm trying to stay warm. A cup of coffee (decaf) will be in my hand really soon! 
Longing to get on my porch again....

We Celebrate Noah

Our youngest Grand will be 1 year old later this week. We celebrated early, on Sunday, because that's when it suited most of the family. What a fun party! Our house was Full, and Loud, and I Loved it! 

Our happy birthday boy!

The theme was Dinosaur...
They were everywhere :)

His big brother has many dinosaurs which were used for decoration.

His daddy provided pictures of growing Noah...it was awesome!

We had lots of yummy food.

We ate and talked and talked and ate =)

The kids had fun eating quickly then continuing their play, of course.

Time for gifts!
He doesn't have a clue as to what to do!

He had lots of help to get those gifts unwrapped!

Checking out a new toy with Brinley. 

Family and friends enjoy watching and taking pictures. 

Time for cake!
 He has not eaten much solid food at all yet (that's something his parents and a Speech Therapist are working on) but he did eat some cake! Just a little bit. He loves ice cream and had some of that too. 

I borrowed this picture from Facebook....thanks, Amber for sharing it :)
He did get messy.....but not as badly as his cousin last August....

Carson made a big, no, a huge mess!!

It was fun! I love celebrating our Grandchildren on their special day. I also love being with the family from their parent that's not our child. 

Just can't believe how fast this year has gone!
