A Little Something Blue

There isn't anything sweeter than a delicious baby boy sitting in a powder blue bubble.

Sporting his brand new Sunday school haircut

At 21 months old he is the epitome of love and happiness 

And has brought more pure and absolute joy into our lives than we ever imagined.

I purchased this bench at the flea market a few months ago in a less than desirable shade of green for fifty dollars. I have always wanted a park bench and was thrilled to find this one at such a good price! 

I knew I wanted to paint it a pretty, beachy blue but could not find the perfect shade until I purchased this adorable tray recently. It was the PERFECT color of blue. I also think we are adopting these few words as our summer motto!

Here she is getting a coat of Kilz from Mr. P and G. 

And after her makeover... Did I mention how pretty she looks with my girls fluffy, pink tutus as well?  I can hardly wait to use this for all the kids birthday parties! 

Like this little guy! My first born son just turned a big five years old! We can hardly believe it and are busy planning his party along with two other birthday parties!

He is quite the camera ham and has the biggest and most adorable personality! He is  magnetic and draws people everywhere we go! He makes me melt with his charming little boy ways and makes me laugh so hard I can't breathe with all of his funny little sayings!
 I am working on a post celebrating my first born son....more soon!

Tomorrow starts the first day of summer for us!! We are looking forward to mornings at the playground, walks in the park, picnics, trips to the farmers market, homemade ice cream, fireworks and sparklers, birthday parties, days at the swimming pool, marshmallow roasts, s'mores, movies in the park, catching lightening bugs, rides on the back of Mommy and Daddy's bicycles, stroller rides down to the coffee shop, eating dinner fresh off the grill, making homemade pies and cobblers, running through the sprinklers, lots of photo sessions and if we are lucky hopefully a trip to Seaside before the end of summer. I am dreaming about it all.....

He is just adorable...with all of his little boy goodness. I especially loved the little bruises on his calves...a true boy!

Bench is pretty darn cute too.

Oh, and I loved your strawberry post!

Okay, I think I covered it all.

So many times I stop by to read your truly beautiful and full-of-blessings blog and read and pray and cry and read and pray and cry some more, but I rarely leave a comment. I'm fairly new to blogging myself, but have loved following you for months and months and months now.
When, not IF, because I believe God truly will want to utilize you and faithful witnessing again soon in a live format, you get your next Pearl event squared away, I definitely want to try to come. Especially if it's in Nashville--I only live a couple hours away in Huntsville, AL and have many friends there from my music recording days in the Christian world(long story there--more on it later) and know that area has been hit SO HARD, so I actually think it'd be a great thing to bring business their way. Anyway...I will keep praying for you.
Thank you for sharing your heart and testimony.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful family.
I can empathize with your history greatly--I have a similar "story" starting with being an orphan for several years...and I even have an older daughter (about to turn 17) as well as younger children.
But, alas, that is another story for another time, too.

Until then, please know that I continue to lift you up and pray for you. You have been an encouragement to so many and I want this little note to be an encouragement to YOU!

Your ministry is thriving and He is smiling down upon it.
Your pain was not for naught--God has used it to grow love and encouragement for many people and I absolutely believe you will touch many, many, many more, so please do NOT be discouraged that you had to postpone your event due to the horrible Nashville flooding.

It will happen again. And it will be an IMMENSE blessing again.

Many blessings to you,
