It’s Sol’s birthday week and boy is this kid excited. The wee Kelleys love birthdays, but Sol takes the cake with his excitement and anticipation. He’s been planning and talking about his birthday for at least 6 months. All.The.Time.People. He just could not be anymore excited. I made a little day countdown for him on the board so he could keep up. He reminds me in the morning to cross the day off.
He had his 4 year appointment Friday and Amon had a little visit too. Our doctor is always so kind to let us knock out multiple appointments in one visit. Sol is seriously like this little old man trapped in an about-to-be four-year-olds body. He cracks me up every single day.
This weekend I had to go through some boxes of stuff from my childhood. This was maybe my most favorite thing I found. I’m almost positive that all my first cousins had them…that all our mom’s purchased them together…and then hung them in our rooms. That frame has been painted one gazillion different colors…the paint job on it is thick…like super thick. I love it.
Josh found a box of his stuff too that we had stored at my Mom’s. He found this little gem that I bought for him when we were in high school. And surprisingly, no, were not hoarders…our house is too small for us to hoard So now we’re washing our hands with sparkly alien green Star Wars soap trying to get to Yoda.
Last night we went out for dinner. We don’t go out very often, but I was feeling like we needed to get out…a change of pace. We went to our favorite little Mexican restaurant. It was fun to watch Amon soak it all in.
One thing I had completely forgotten about eating out with Huddy and Sol is you have to quickly collect the butter knives. Should we be worried…they just love knives and swords and anything dangerously related. It makes me laugh though. I kind of like them.
A little reminder for me…and the rest of the Kelley crew. I must say this or “treat others as you want to be treated” way, way, way too many time a day. Crossing my fingers it’s sinking in.
And my first ever Saturday Sale was…well, Saturday. I know I could never accurately express my deep deep gratitude to you guys, but I hope you really know how deep and sincere I am when I say, Thank you…truly, truly, truly Thank You. I had no idea how something like this would go over…would some pieces be bought, would all, would none. I literally sat on our bed over the computer as the emails rolled in and just cried. I was so overwhelmed with God’s goodness. And He deserves every last little bit of praise. I am just humbled and honored and so very very thankful.
Now I’m working on getting everything packaged up and mailed off. If you purchased something, make sure to check your email again…you should have a reply waiting from me. And if you didn’t get a piece you were after, please know that I hate to disappoint and I will be having another sale February 9th.
And thank you again so much. I just really cannot say that enough.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Now I’m off now to fix three little boys some lunch.
