Baby, Oh Baby!

I am so excited to announce that my newest grandson was born yesterday and he was a BIG BOY! John Patrick came into the world 5 days late and he had really been packing on some pounds those last few days. He weighed in at 9lbs 12 oz, and he was 22 in long. He looks like a 2 month old. Anyway, we are so happy to finally get to meet him and so proud of his mom (and dad). He will be welcomed home tomorrow by his sister and 3 brothers. We are truly blessed to have 6 grandchildren (1 at our other sons house). They bring so much joy to our lives.

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall

I am really sorry for the quality of this picture (check out the reflection of the unfinished ceiling in my basement). I am obviously new at this photo thing, but this is the before of my mirror from Salvation Army. And, this is after a couple of coats of Krylon White Gloss spray paint. Isn't she a beauty! I am sure you can imagine my excitement when I first saw her, she was a real sleeping beauty!
I love finding pieces like this and knowing they will have new life again.
