Parker is 3!

Our little boy isn't so little! Parker is 3 years old now!!

He had a great birthday party with friends and family. He loved his Spiderman cupcake holders and loved all of his gifts. It was fun having his party at our house.

Parker is a smart cookie! Here are his favorite things to say and do right now:

- Seriously mommy, seriously! (yes he learned that from me)

- He loves to pretend to make food

- He will follow along with TV shows when they ask the audience questions

- He loves the movie Rio

- He loves to sing and dance, mostly sing. He will make up random songs and sing them when ever and where ever he is (example below)

- He loves to give random hugs and kisses

- He also likes to act out scenes with his Spiderman and Batman figures.

Below are pics of Parker and his BFF Brycen. We took cookies to daycare for Brycen's birthday. We ended up doing this a day early but we wanted to be the first to wish Brycen a happy 3rd birthday!!

Parker's actual birthday fell on a Wednesday so we decided to treat him and us to dinner out! We went to Fusion Japanese Restaurant. It a guaranteed win since it's dinner and entertainment. Parker loves eating with his chop sticks, loves the eggies and he especially loves the "yum yum" sauce! Great time had by all!!

I also don't want to forget to also note a few other items about Parker at the ripe old age of 3! :)

- He weights 35lbs

- He is 37.5 inches tall

- He can now stand up and pee. He now clears the toilet :)

- He was discharged from the cardiology unit at Children's Hospital. He is healthy and no need to go back!

- He checks multiple times a day to make sure no one has taken is "junk" (private parts). Dr says this is normal! :)

Looking for FREE!

I have a need to shop and to work on projects. So to fill this need I have turned to looking for free projects. I am not ashamed to say I look for items people are throwing away, I am a trash picker! :) Here are some items that we have literally picked out of the trash and transformed into something new for our home! :)

Parker loves his new school desk. It's been a great addition to our office.

Who knew that an old print drawer could look so nice!! His cars look great hanging on the wall.

The plant stand has been spray painted brown and looks brand new now. In the spring it will have flowers :)

This table to picked from a friends Facebook post. Now it has a new home and repourposed!

I have found a new way to have projects on a budget!! Anything you want to give-a-way you just let me know!!

Hotel Gibbs

At the end of September we had some special house guests. Uncle Larry, Aunt Suzie and Bella came to stay with us. Larry and Suzie has just sold their home in Rhode Island and needed a place to stay before relocating to Hawaii!! Parker loved Bella (the dog) but after two weeks still wouldn't get hear her. She is the best dog ever but Parker didn't believe us. :)

Parker loved having new friends at the house. He was so excited to see everyone and misses them very much. It's never a dull moment with this group so needless to say we had a great memorable time!! :)

Parker loves his Aunt Suzie so much! He talks about them often and can't wait to see them in Hawaii!! :)
