Here is the new 'bar' scene. A mom's night out with craftiness. I've always wanted to go to one of these places. The RSVP instructions requested participants to bring something to share. Most people brought a bottle of wine or some cheese and crackers...I brought Heineken. Turns out I was the hit of the party. I like wine, but when you are painting - just seems more like a beer event. Seems like some other mom's agreed! Olivia now has custom made drawer pulls just like in Anthropology magazine - only these weren't $22 each. I might end up buying the real those when I see how these turn out...

Happy Birthday Daddy

Amazing how long it takes to light all these candles! The freaking cake started to melt before I could even get it done! Then one step out to the patio and woosh...a gust of wind just about blew them all out. What a dud!

We Did It

It doesn't happen often that you look to your partner, smile and think - wow...we did it... We got the house, cars, jobs, kid and inflatable pool. Wow. Whatelse could we hope for?~! I must admit I NEVER thought I would put myself in a kiddie pool in my backyard. But thanks to our local warehouse discount store - this is not your ordinary kiddie pool. We have sprinklers, bench, waterfall, slide, deepside AND shallow side. And most important two cupholders. Its full scale integration of the backyard experience. Who knew. We're already talking future projects - a lap pool maybe? Until then this is a good proto-type.

This doesn't end well

...if you are the bird. Kitcat is probably feeling a bit like the new 30... She's getting older but proving she's still got it. It was a bad week for birds. She took out 2 in the same day.
