From Little girls room ......to young womans room

After about a year of begging from my daughter Libby to change the color of her room we finally just went for it and painted the room!

Sooo....After a new paint color, removal of ALL pink, new bedspred, addition wicker, new lamp and a bit of cleaning and straigtening her room was finished.

I have to say that everyone LOVES the new room.  When she got home we showed it to her and it was fun to see her tear up with excitement.  Made the whole weekend worth it!

Here is a "BEFORE" pic of her room...

Out in the WILD!

 Looking out my office window I spotted this bird perched up on my neighbors house.  I quickly called in Otis and Libby and we watched the large bird in awe and admired its beauty.  We watched for several minutes while it looked around so carefully....
Then it slowly crept down off the roof and onto the ground around our neighbors pond.  Our neighbors have the prettiest pond out front of their house.

We then watched as the crane dove down and scooped up one of their pet KOI and swallow it whole.  It was both shocking and amazing to watch all at the same time.  Which is why we dont have a photo!  When we realized that the bird was planning on catching himself another yummy meal, Otis went out and made some noise in the front yard to scare the bird away. 

It wasnt until later that what we feared had come true.....That all the fish in the lower pond were gone.  Apparantly the crane knew exactly where to get a good meal and now has a full belly.
