Pink and Green but Mature In Style

I was approached by a friend to create a set that would showcase her love of pink and green. I decided that i wanted to take on the challenge. I chose to find a way to help this color combination grow up. This is the result. I think that i achieved what i set out to do. As the piece comes together, i will post pictures.

I am the mother of a three year old!!

We celebrated my sons third birthday on Saturday. He got a real drum set and a guitar. You should have seen his face when he uncovered the drums. All smiles. Friday, my husband and i went shopping for him. It was fun to look at all the fun toys there are. We decided that we wanted to have a water theme so we got him an 18 inch swimming pool with water toys and water balloons. My husband wanted to get him a squirt gun but i was resident to commit. Isn't he too young for guns? Well, after a long discussion, we decided to pass. Not because we were opposed to them, just because it merited further discussion. Anyway, we invited mostly family to the party and it was a wonderful time. We all talked and ate and admired the little reason we all gathered for. Presents were not the focus of our little get together, so if there were any we opened them quietly with the giver. Uncle Dan very excitedly gave his gift to Caleb and what would it be? Four little squirt guns!! Funny, It was a relief to have someone older and wiser settle the discussion for us. As a result of Uncle Dan's contribution the party became much more entertaining. We immediately established who the first target would be....Yup, you guessed it. Uncle Dan! Because of Calebs height, everyone looked like they had wet themselves.

What a wonderful day!
