Curb Appeal

We have a HUGE front porch AND back porch, and until now, they have been completely empty. I found some adorable black rocking chairs at Garden Ridge and red side tables at Old World Market. My mother-in-law, Patty, picked us up some huge ferns and put them in her mom's antique plant stands. I think it is coming together quite nicely. What do you think?

There is still more I want to do. I really want a 3 piece bistro set for the front right corner of the porch. And some fun throw pillows for the chairs. And some huge ceramic urns to plant flowers. And after taking these pictures I told Matt that I think we need to paint the front door - wouldn't red be a fun color?

My father-in-law, Doug, brought over more gravel for Matt's "Gravel Project". Ben thinks these huge piles of rock are here just for him to climb on. Look how proud he is of himself!

Ben also had his first golf lesson tonight. Matt bought him his first golf set - wood, iron, putter and bag. I don't think we're ready to change his name to Tiger yet, but maybe some day.

As for Ella, she is feeling a little under the weather. How can I tell? Well, can you find her in the picture below?

Look closer....

Here is a view from the other side. She NEVER falls asleep on the floor. When I picked her up, she was running a fever. It is so upsetting to have a little one who doesn't feel well.

Matt was taking a continuing ed class this weekend in Columbus so I took the kids and headed up to Canton to Gigi and Papa's house. We hadn't been there since Thanksgiving. We had A TON of fun, with Gigi and Papa, and Erin, Josh, McKenna and Max (THANKS Mom and Dad and the Webers!!). I took lots of pictures. I will post some later this week.
