One Cute Guy and Some Other Cute Stuff

I can't believe my baby is starting middle school today. It seems like only yesterday when we took this picture.

Now he looks like this.
Where did the time go? The cereal box picture is one of my all time favorite pictures. I still can't believe he fit in there. I think about all the pictures I have when the kids were little that were taken before we had our digital camera. I need to somehow get those pictures on my computer. I have a perfectly good scanner sitting next to my computer, just haven't figured out how to hook it up yet and I guess I just haven't pestered my husband enough to do it. Now that I have this blog though, it gives me a good excuse to do it. Here are some other fun pictures of when the kids were smaller.

The sad thing is I can't even get them to pose together anymore. I really miss when they use to be friends. Hopefully they will be again someday.

So anyway, dropping my son off at school today was a little harder than I thought it would be and I even shed a couple tears after I pulled away. Come on, it's not like he's going to kindergarten or anything. It's just that he seems to be growing so fast now and for the longest time he was my little guy and now he's almost as tall as I am.

Well, enough of that. To cheer myself up I took some more pictures of some of my collections.

These pictures were taken in my living room.

Some rose paintings and some tole trays on a wall next to my sofa and tv cabinet.

I got this cute rustic cabinet from my friend Diane last spring. It holds a lot of my stuff.

Top of the cabinet is home to a little pink cabinet, tole trays and my collection of pink rose creamers.

Inside the cabinet on the top shelf is my wedding topper collection. I also have other wedding stuff here like my wedding picture and some cute vintage wedding books.

Second and bottom shelves just hold some neat miscellaneous stuff .

Last but certainly not least, a picture of the shelf above the entry to my kitchen. This is where my pink pottery collection lives along with some other cute stuff.

Today I'll be heading to the new Ikea in Portland to check it out and then my daughter and I will be getting our back to school pedicures. Tomorrow is my daughters first day of school. Going to meet my hubby for lunch and do a little thrift shopping to celebrate having both kids back at school. Have a fabulous day!

Hi Lisa
My baby starts kindergarten next week, I don't think I will be too sad. I already did that when my original baby started kindergarten and that was 15 years ago.... and of course the first baby started 20 years ago...wow I should be use to sending these baby boys off to school!!!

Lisa, such cute pictures!! Sometimes, we are so anxious to see them grow and become more independent, but then we start feeling nostalgic about all the tender and funny moments...! What is a mom to do?!!

You have an absolutely beautiful home... I would love to design mine like this someday! Beautiful Blog.

Isn't it sad that our kids grow up? Mine are 14 and 9 and I can't get them to pose together for pictures anymore either, and I'm a Scrapbooker,LOL.
