Playing Catch Up

Hello! It has been a little while since my last post so I thought I'd do a little catching up with everyone. Like most people, the past 2 weeks have been a blurr. With time off from work, school, slowing down of InkSpot Workshop orders, plus the help of visiting grandparents for the holidays we thought it would be a good idea to tackle some household projects. Numero Uno being my son's new Big Boy Room! I never thought I'd cry over packing up a crib, but the time is here. Hard to believe almost 3 years has passed since we first decorated this room as a nursery. His new room is currently being transformed into a mixture of both Disney's CARS and Thomas the Tank Engine. How to do this tastefully? Stay tuned to see the final results. Of course in about 2 weeks he should change his interests all together and we'll have to redecorate!

Now we are crying because we miss the crib... said toddler is not adjusting to his new bed, which means we are getting regular visits to our bed at 4:30 am. Every one's tired and crabby around here, almost like having a newborn again. If anyone has any suggestions for helping a little guy make the switch from crib to bed....I'm all EARS!

Before the room project started, we enjoyed a fantastic Christmas with our friends and family. Here's a shot I got just after Santa visited late Christmas Eve.

Continuing with the whole Thomas and CARS theme is an adorable ornament from Holiday Home Ornaments, compliments of Nana.
And this absolutely beautiful hand painted ornament from Stella Baby Designs. I wish I could paint!

Such a thrill to watch the little guy rip open all his "surprises". He turns 3 in just a few weeks, so this was the first Christmas where he finally understood what was going on and was so excited.
The AFTERMATH! Such a site. This is surely one to save and show his first date. A representation of all his interests rolled into one complete look. His new red bike he calls his "sleigh" and thinks he's Santa but wears a shark towel instead of a red suit. One foot has on a new CARS shoe, which actually never come off so this was a rare shot. At 2.90 he is shaving! must be the hormones in the beef:) His new Thomas the Train razor seems to do a great job.

Things are finally settling back down to normal and everyone got to enjoy some cupcakes with the neighbors. Happy Birthday Ryder!
I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the holidays. Happy New Year!
