Recently, you may remember that my eldest daughter had her seventh baby. Rebecca Kathleen is a wee beauty who never makes a peep until she wants to eat (or can I say the word suckle here?) And then she's a force to be reckoned with. She is from a big family of kids, I like to call a gaggle. Is that a goose word? Well, I'm always mistaking ducks for geese so…
Whilst we used to be over- ridden with testosterone, with our four precious boys, the last three have been girls. We're catching up! It only takes five to have a basketball team and eleven for a football team so we're there, and almost there. My granddaughters are mighty and have lots of girly power though so they keep up with those boys just fine. Their daddy is Athletic Director at their local high school but his favorite team is his very own, right at home!
I gave my daughter a baby shower for her seventh child because in this day and age, unfortunately, people don't get too excited about a woman about to bare her seventh child. But I thought we should celebrate. Every child is a blessing and Rebecca needed an introduction into a family who chooses to welcome her with love! We are a pro life family. If you've read more than three of my posts you have already figured that out. One of my favorite verses in The Bible is the following from Deuteronomy 30:19
This day I call heaven and earth as witness against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
My sweet hubby got his saw-horse out for me so I wouldn't have to stand on my head to paint. I'm waaay to old for that unless I'm doing yoga and I didn't want to get my mat all dirty on the garage floor.
Please don't try to picture that.
After getting the entire high chair all darkened up, I covered it with Vintage White. Remember this is going to be a shabby, chippy, chair that looks like it's been around f o r e v e r.
|How old does that look? Pretty shabby so far, right? With CeCe Caldwell's paint you|
can sand (Gakkkk) or just rub off the extra paint for that shabby look. Guess which route I took?
