Our third son is graduating.

Three have graduated, and now three grandchildren

I'm feeling old all of a sudden.

I'm trying to get everything done for the open house on Saturday.

Our children grow up way to fast for my way of thinking.

I'm going to try to make the most of the years I have left with little ones around.

The twins are now big brothers to a little sister who made her appearance on June 20th at

12:23pm she weighed in at 6#10oz. 19 1/2in.

Her name is Riley Ann and she's very sweet.

here are a few pictures of her.

A very proud daddy just a little while after she was born.

These were taken today when we went to see her at 1 day old.

Here is a picture of the twins with their sister and me, grandma.

My little Gift & Tea Shop

I am on a journey of starting a little gift & tea shop at my home,

I'm still trying to think of names

I'm thinking of:

Blessings By Renee Gift & Tea Boutique or

Renee's Treasures

any thoughts on these ?

I 'm going to show some pictures of the building, my husband hauled home for me.

as you can see, I have a lot of work ahead of me. starting by gutting the whole inside then tape and paint.

I am planning on using old cupboards for displaying things, I have some and will have to watch for some more. I am just itching to start.

I will try to post pictures as I progress along.

I am very excited!
I have been working on my different craft projects. hoping to have enough things ready by fall when I'd like to have everything ready.
