The first project of this New Year was to get the upper shelves in the Living Room/Kitchen decorated. They look so pretty at Christmas with garland, lights, and a multitude of snowmen but when it all came down......BARE.....DEPRESSING!!! Sooooo I went bargain hunting and this is what all came together
This side of the shelf is in the kitchen right above the walk in pantry
This is the cupboards just to the right of the pantry
I just love this plate!!
I found these cute tin containers for just a couple $$ on clearance at Hobby Lobby! I love that store!
This is the living room side
Our next event was the three oldest boys joining the UPWARD basketball team here in Cape. It is a church sponsored organization that teaches not only basketball skills but good sportsmanship etc. They asked Troy to coach Travis' team and he is having a blast doing that! There are about 350 kids all together and they are divided up into around 40 - 50 teams. They have a practice once a week, then on Saturdays they play each others teams. It has been a really neat way to meet a lot of people in our community. Troy also gets to give a devotional at each practice with his team. Here they are ready to go to their first practice.
Our first Birthday celebration of this year started out with Troy....he is the big 39 this year....just wait until next year!! :)
