Office Remix...

Mike and Amanda are off with a group of youth recreating the pioneer trek that settled Utah.  As they are experiencing the hardship and sacrifices of daily life on the trail, I'm here at home trying to be creative.  Mike usually occupies most of the time spent in the office, but since he's gone I've been in here a lot.   Of course I can't spend time in ANY room for very long with out wanting to tweak it.  And with Mike away...I don't even have to ask permission...not that I ever do!

I'm sure this won't be the last time things get remixed.  I will enjoy it for a few weeks until I "need" to do it again.  I hope Mike likes his office corner with a moodier industrial edge to it.  Now to get back to the laundry...something that I wish I felt the "need" to do as well.

Thomas is 10

So my baby turned 10 on Friday.  I don't know how these things happen, but a part of me is happy about the change.  As bitter sweet as it is to see Thomas grow up, it's also exciting.  He has had more of a challenge reaching the same milestones as his peers (Autism Spectrum Disorder) but nothing seems to permanently hold him back.  He is an amazing boy!

This year for his Birthday, he invited his best friends to celebrate with him at Sun and Fun Lagoon Water Park.

This year Thomas was excited to actually read his cards!

His cousin Alli is back from Utah...he was so excited to see her!

I'm pretty sure these boys had fun...Thomas said it was his best birthday ever and I believe him!
