I was planning on posting a few snappies of our Christmas decor today but I have had killer sinus headaches 3 days this week (today included) so I don't have photos ready.  I also have some of my Christmas decorations "visiting" a dear friend whose home is on a Holiday Home Tour this weekend.  Her house is amazing!  So, I am going to wait and post my stuff next week.  If you want to see some great holiday decor though several of my bloggy friends are featured on this virutal holiday home tour.

In the meantime, feel free to read my birthday letter to Harry that I posted last night (last post).  We gave him his gifts and went to the 59 diner for dinner and a milkshake.  It was such a nice night.  The 3 peanuts went off to play some games with quarters and Dave and I looked at them happily skip through the restaurant and we just smiled at each other with that knowing look that Life is Good.

Here is Harry opening his gifts from us.


I found him a judo card...



Kate gave him a ramp (sorry for the blurry photos) it was low light and I was shaky.





LOVE these photos  of Harry and Kate together.




We all got him some small finger boarding stuff.  I even spent some time on the sites learning more about it and getting him some tiny surprises.  He was so overwhelmed with his gifts that he actually shed some tears of joy.  It was quite touching.


  1. happy birthday celebration to your handsome harry

  2. Love Harry's card!! Looks like he had a wonderful birthday! Sending Birthday greetings again to Harry and Get Well wishes to you!

  3. From the glimpses in the photos your silver/white only tree looks just beautiful. That is a great card for him, too. I hope you feel better!

  4. Looks like Harry had a special birthday. I love how appreciative your kids are. Sweet photos..I love your beautiful tree.

    Gin =)

  5. Happy birthday to your handsome guy. Mine is turning 2 in a few months and I can imagine that I'm only going to need to blink and he will be 11 himself.

  6. Oh I love the pictures of Harry and Kate too:) He is such a special guy and I love his tender heart

  7. That is a GREAT idea to read up and learn more about what your kids are interested in (is this a counseling technique?!?!!) In fact, I should do that for my boys and some of the games they play that I usually could care less about and SHOULD because its important to them!!!

    Im glad Harry enjoyed his birthday and his gifts! You can tell he loves his brother & sister!!

  8. Happy Birthday to Harry!! Love the photo of him and Kate embracing, so sweet.:)
    Kim, your tree is gorgeous!!

  9. So sweet! I love your tree! Do I spy Pottery Barn ornaments on there? :)



Thank you for your kindness.
