To School We Go!

Here's my proud little cub on his first day of preschool.

Boy, he was excited!

And in the spirit of Nie (do you love her as much as I love her?), we had a back-to-school feast! This included crowns, pizza, cupcakes, and a father's blessing.

This Mama Bear loves her big preschool boy!

My Latest Project

S'pose it's time for a new post. If anything, just to get that pesky swear out of view every time you enter my blog (not that I mind an occasional pesky swear. But you might).

Ta da! So cute in the cub's room, is it not?

I laugh a little bit every time paint furniture, make it look lovely, and then pull out the sandpaper to distress the crap out of it. It feels so wrong, but looks so right!
