Ezra's birthday

 

Ezra turned 3 today. His birthday is easy to remember, 09-08-07... We kept it pretty low key and celebrated on Monday when devin was home. Breakfast was delicious and as you can see the cupcakes were too!

 

These are some of my favorite pictures taken of Ezra over the last 3 years. Its hard to limit my favorite pictures. I know i'm biased but I just think Ezra is such a handsome boy and has such a contagious smile.

These are the birthday pictures for the last 3 years..you can see his eating habits haven't changed much!

Ezra is seriously my buddy. Some days I think I'm going to go crazy because he is such a busy boy but honestly he makes me laugh and smile daily and I wouldn't change him for anything! He has such a sweet spirit about him and I know he is going do amazing things. Not everyone knows this, but Ezra was diagnosed with autism earlier this year. It has been a struggle, but we are blessed with so many people that support us and lead us in the right direction. He is making tons of progress and I know his future is bright. We are so hopeful for him and are willing to do whatever it takes to pull him through this! To learn more about autism I suggest this site.
We love you Ezra!!!

furniture revamp

Before:


After:



We got an older dresser from some friends when we moved here and right away I decided I wanted to make it into a TV stand. So we took out the first 2 rows of dressers then laid wood on the bottom to make it a shelf. We painted it this ungly brown, because it was the only color of oops paint that we liked and felt like we could do anything with. The TV stand has done us well, but the last couple of months-OK really year- I have wanted to repaint it and do something much more fun with it. So this is the results. The hardest part was sanding it, that was a pain. Overall i'm very pleased with the results I just want to distress it more.
