Photo Tag

I'm really excited I read friends blogs all the time and they get tagged to do different thing's and I have never been tagged.. So this is the first time... SO the object is you have to take the fourth picture in your fourth picture album and post it and tell about the picture...Here's my picture.

This picture was taken on March 31, 2005.... It's a very special day for me it was the day I gave birth to Olivia... This picture is the first time I saw her. The nurse was cleaning her off as I got my look at her... So this is the little girl that has made me so sick the last 9 months... Isn't she beautiful ? She had a ton of curly red hair... She was born at 4:45pm and weighed in at 8lbs. 5oz. 21 inches long... And our life has never been the same...

Thanks Michal for the tag it brought back a great memory ...

A New Room For Livvy

So a few months ago I decided it was time for Olivia to go to a big girl bed...I know kinda late but the last baby is really hard to give up... So I started looking for a bed... You must understand I have champagne taste on a beer budget... Matt let me know their wasn't a lot of money to be spending on her new room... Of course I took this as a challenge.... So first I told my girlfriends to be on the lookout I needed a bed for Livvy...
In no time I got a call from a friend that was at a garage sale and said their was a bed if I was creative....This is what I found

The bed was an ugly old brown when I first saw it the lady said she would give me the whole thing mattress and all for $20... I about fell over , of course I said sold... I brought it home and went in to tell Matt I need your help to unload something... Looking at me crazy I said I bought Livvy a bed .. Next question how much ? Twenty dollars... I could see the look what is this going to cost.... Much to his surprise he was impressed with my bargain.. We decided to paint it a light lavender... Matt sprayed it so it would come out better and have a sturdier finish... It came out Beautiful... I then painted the walls a celery color... I was shopping at T.J.Max and found a set of Laura Ashley sheets that Livvy loved ..... $12 for a set of sheets not bad...I found a eyelet comforter in lavender for $30 ... Right after finding the sheet
I was talking to my dad , who has recently taken up painting and ask him if he could paint a few pictures for livvy's room... I sent him a pic of the fairies on the sheets and this is what he sent back...
They are perfect they totally make the room... I think it has been amazing how for under a hundred dollars I have changed her room from a nursery to a little girls room... Their are a few things I still want to do... I would love to hang a chandelier so I'm on the look at for that and I still need to change the drawer pull's for the dresser and bed...
I guess the thing that matters most is she loves it ... She is now playing in there all the time and she has been sleeping in their every night... I guess she really is a Big Girl now!

Could You Hear It?

The screaming that was coming from my house last night was way too loud for me... Matt and the kids were screaming at this

Lowrie sends Red Sox back to ALCS
Rookie ropes walk-off single, setting up showdown with Rays
It may not seem that big of a deal to you but at this house it's huge !!! You have no choice in this house but to be a Red Sox fan... I will hate to see what happens here if they don't make it to the World Series... Good Luck Red Sox... I know this family will be rooting for you...

Picture Day

Yesterday was picture day for the boy's... I had to take a few pic's because they looked so cute..
What a handsome devil he is ... He's getting so big... He was really excited about the new shirt and of course the high lights in his hair... He is so into what he looks like... Looks like trouble to me..
They looked so cute I didn't have much time to take pics but I'm sure their School ones will turn out great... I'm a lucky mom with some darn good looking kid's , I'm not biased or anything...
