Catching up

All my shopping excursions have paid off with the kids. A big boy bed was purchased for Camden this weekend as well as his new bedding. The above picture shows the bed, however his is a wood color without the side rails. I have decided to do a wild west theme, with the above print as the inspiration. He is going to have a denim comforter with red/ecru check sheets and accented with the cowpoke pillow and a chocolate brown pillow. I have lots of painting to do in the next three weeks. His dresser, night-stand and walls of his room will all be a different color. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Noah had two soccer games this weekend, with one of them resembling an actual game. The kids were really doing great stopping the ball and turning the ball around and kicking it in the correct direction. It is fun to watch your child's personality come out in sports. Noah is a very cautious child who also happens to be a "follower". He wants to do whatever his buddy is doing and if he could, he would even try to stand in the same space that his buddy is occupying.

We have had a host of doctor's appt's last week and this week. Brian, hopefully is on the mend. He says he feels like Superman on steroids. After this second round of antibiotics, we are hoping that his throat feels better.

I have been to the doctor as well and will go back for tests this week. Hopefully I will have some answers fairly soon as to what is causing me pain.

The dogs have not been exempt from the doctor's office either. Gracie has been three times in the last week fighting allergies. After a shot in the hiney she is feeling better temporarily. She seems to be allergic to grass and pollen. Poor thing was so miserable.

Hope everyone's weekend was great. We are looking forward to Easter and spending time with family.

My animals all have to go to the Vet. this week. BooBoo has a follow up, Phoebe is fighting allergies too, and Abby needs her yearly shots. And Phoebe is going to the groomer on Saturday AM! She needs a good grooming! When I first adopted Phoebe, Karla nicknamed her Hair....She is definitely living up to her nickname!
I am glad Noah's game actually resembled a game! Way to go Noah!

I love the "wild west" decor for Camden's room. Can't wait to see it. I may have to hold a paintbrush! Can do. Will see you in less than two weeks and looking forward to 3-D truck cake.

Love the cowboy theme. I used that exact print to make a western diaper bag for a friend a couples years back. It's versatile and there's so many things you can do with it. I coupled it with a red bandana material. Just adorable. Can't wait to see the final outcome. Hope everyone is feeling ok and that all are on the mend.
