Project: Kids Table Completed

Xavier's table has been completed now for almost a month, I guess it's time to show the after photo. I mixed up the colors and went with a bright green base, brown chairs and chalk board paint top. It has become Xaviers favorite place to eat dinner.

Schools in Session

Wow, it doesn't seem like that long ago I was talking about looking for the right Preschool, now here we are in the first of September and Xavier started school. Okay lets be honest he is only going four hours a day  five days a week. It's still a big change going from staying home with the nanny to a classroom setting. He is one tired little guy come bedtime.

A weekend at Home

I enjoy when we have few plans and the weekend just happens, that was this weekend. We accomplished projects around the house, took in a concert, football game and spent Sunday morning at the zoo. Xavier even had a chance to cool down at the neighbors pool.

Project: Kids Table

When my grandparents were in town my grandpa brought Xavier a wood table and chair set that he had made. It's actually the same table and chair pattern he made for me when I was a little girl. This weekend we finally had some time to sand and paint the table. Unfortunately, the sanding took longer then expected and I was only able to paint one side. Currently it's all off white, but last night we were talking and I think I might paint the table base (the trees) a bright color and put chalk board paint on the table top. Here are a few pictures of the progress.

Let the Weekend Begin

Living away from your extended family is good and bad. First, the family drama is not at your door step. That also means grandma can't be your on call babysitter. We enjoy living far away, it makes going back a little more special.
Since Xavier was born it seems two weekends a month have been spent visiting family. This weekend we are heading north to see the Martinez/Luna family.

Family in Town

This weekend my grandparents came to town. We celebrated my grandfather's 87th birthday, took Xavier to a parade and spent lots of time sharing family memories.

Vacation Recap

It has been a few weeks now since we returned from our big trip, and people keep asking what was your favorite part. I have a hard time answering, the whole trip was fantastic. I don't know that I can say one part out shinned the rest. I will say my favorite museum was the Musee d' Orsey. The most memorable was walking the streets of Paris with my husband, and of course getting to catch up with friends in London.

I also learned a few things while traveling this time. You really only need to travel with two things a credit card and your iPhone.
