.:A New Arrangement of Pretty Things in Our Entrance Way:.

I brought out our summer decorations on Saturday and had fun rearranging things that evening and on Sunday. I really like changing things up with the seasons... though this arrangement really doesn't scream Summer to me, the previous look was very springy and I was getting tired of it.

.:Father John's Father's Day Gifts:.

I wasn't very creative with Fr John's Father's Day gift this year, but he liked the planters. He always admires these bushes in the yards around our neighborhood. I am not crazy about them when they are in flower beds because I think that they look too sparse, but I think that they look pretty good in the planters.

.:My Rocker:.
I love having my rocker on the front porch. It is so nice to sit and rock while I watch the little ones ride their bikes up and down the sidewalk.

.:Bubble Maker:.

The children love to play with this little bubble machine, but Little Man is more fascinated with the mechanics of the fan than the bubbles that it blows! What a boy! :)


Our friend's baby was baptized before Liturgy on Sunday morning and while I couldn't go (I'm only halfway through my 40 Days), Sugar Plum went with Father John and everyone took lots of pictures, so I am enjoying it vicariously!
