Bonn fire fun....

Oh my, we had a busy weekend. Charlie's cousin Wendy and her sweet family came in from Louisiana to visit for the weekend. We got all the family together for a Bonn fire and wienie roast. We had a great time eating and visiting. We have two new little additions to our family. I am a GREAT aunt! HA, that really sounds old.

Here's some pictures from our get together.

Charlie Mac ate about 10 marshmallows.... I know I win the prize for best mom! :)

Cole eating some yummy chili.
My great niece Makenzie, she is a doll baby, look at those cheeks. ;)

And my great nephew Tori Preston, Look at those eyes! :)

We had a great evening. I Love when we get to spend time together as a family. I hope your having a great Sunday as well!

The perfect pick....

It was a glorious Fall day here in Arkansas, so we loaded up and went to the pumpkin patch. I was a little disappointed, not many pumpkins. All the rain we had really effected the pumpkins this year. We did have a great time though.

Warning: Lots of pictures.....

My four kids, HA!

The boys loved feeding the horses

It's hard to get a family picture....

Carson feeding the horses.....

Me and my BIG baby....

Cole and Carson really can be sweet to each other, not very often. I'm glad I had my camera.

Cole found his pumpkin.

charlie Mac had fun running to each one and touching it.

I'm one LUCKY momma!

Cole being so 11! :)

The best one I could get of the three of them!

I have a busy day ahead. I have both the boys teacher conferences. And I need to get something together for the teachers to snack on while they conference. Charlie Mac has mom's day out this morning, so I should get a lot done in my 3 hours. I guess I need to go get the hounds up and ready for the day.
Have a wonderful Tuesday.

The CRAFTROOM reveal.....

FINALLY........ I got my pictures uploaded, I'm such a slacker these days! I guess I have an excuse, THREE kids, actually THREE BOYS!!!!

I'm not totally thru, but so close. There are a few other things I want to do in here.

But, here's a few pictures, keep in mind this used to be a deer head room! My husband took this room over when we moved in, and he finally gave it over! HA!!

This cute little shelf here, was a ugly dark brown 70's style bookcase. I knew there was some potential and at the cost of 25.00! I took a little of my Heirloom white spray paint and sprayed the heck out of it. Now a cute shelf for me to keep all my scrapbook supplies in. I hung a mirror I already had and some of my white plates.

This corner table is a antique I picked up at the flea market. It is the perfect size for in here, and is a great space to sew and scrap. The chair is a ladder back with a rush seat, and I gave it a coat of my favorite spray paint too.

Right above the table I have ordered this shelf to hold more of my craft supplies. It is on back order until the 1st of November.

Here's some of the details.....

These curtains I fell in love with, I found them at Tuesday Morning and they were 9.99 a panel. I knew they wouldn't be long enough for my high ceilings, so I added a little burlap to the bottoms. I think they turned out pretty good!

This small side table, I found at a garage sale, 5.00! AND of course sprayed the mess out of it to. I know my neighbors think I'm CRAZY! :)

All my accessories were found at flea markets and garage sales. I paid a whopping 3.00 for the magazine holder!

some cute jars.....

and I think this is my favorite part of the room, pictures I took and framed.

My computer chair sits by my armorie, and it was 3.00 also at a garage sale.

And I have to share this, This morning Charlie Mac was helping me do laundry. It was the sweetest thing ever. I just LOVE him to pieces.

All in all I'm very happy with it in here, and I have my own space to craft in. I feel good that I didn't pay a lot for the things I needed. You really can achieve so much with very little money!

Happy Monday.

I can see clearly now....

Well, My big baby boy Cole, had to get glasses last week. He was coming home from school almost every day with a headache. I thought it would be best to get his eyes checked. sure enough, he has astigmatism in his right eye. glasses could possibly correct it, so we will see how it goes. I think he looks pretty darn CUTE myself!!!

Carson had a football game Saturday and I snatched a couple of pictures...

I thought charlie Mac looked sweet in his football longall Sunday for church....

Really nothing much going on around here. I just wanted to pop in and share Cole's new look!

I will be back this week I promise and show you my craft room!

Have a good evening! :)
