Happy 10 year House Anniversary

We moved into our house 10 years ago on February 1.  So I decided it would be fun to have a little celebration.  After all, our house is a home.  So many memories inside these walls....and for me it is the BEST place.  I am a naturally I want to give thanks for it.  My grandfather helped us build this home and without his amazing help in so many would have never come to fruition.  So in memory of him.....we are grateful for the love, hard work and dedication he put into this place we now call home.   Love you Grandpa.

I knew I wanted to buy something special for this event and I so happened to find what I was looking for.  If you don't know this website.....please visit....Farmgirl paints!  Becky is so talented and I fell in love with her work at once. I sent her a photo of our house and she created a beautiful painting.  My heart warms every time I look at it.  Lots of photos ahead!!

Beautifully wrapped painting from Becky

 Thank you Becky...our family is so appreciative!


  1. Oh my gosh--SO cute!!! Trying to figure out where you put it. Family room? And you didn't invite us over for some of that yummy looking cake (nothing like good old Baskin Robbins for the most important celebrations) ;-)

    I love the idea of having a "house party". And your children are very beautiful! Happy Weekend.
