Sweet boys (and girls).....and a blank slate ~

Out of thirty photos.....this is what I have. Believe me, I am truly thankful. But these boys make one another laugh.....kid each other.....so truly, it's a miracle that I was able to get this ONE!!!!



Brent, Emily and precious Clara.....



My blank slate??? The guest room. I've NEVER had a guest room!!!
With so many children, how could you? I'm slowly building this room....



See the white band surrounding the room? It used to be a teddy bear border but I painted it white....now to hang wonderful things in the space, right???

Wishing you an amazing week my sweet friends!!!
hugs and love,
Dawn

So glad you got a photo you're happy with! I have four children and the older they got they harder it was to get any "serious" group shots...but I have a lot of "fun" pictures of them...as I'm sure you do too!
Your "blank slate" is looking beautiful. I can't wait to see peeks as you complete it.

Have a lovely week Dawn!

Hi Dawn, just love seeing the photo of all your boys, they are a great looking group! Your guest room is coming along so pretty. I know you will make it a work of art. Now I just have one question. With that many boys how do you still have your sanity?!! LOL. I admire you, girl!! And that Clara. She gets cuter every day!
Dawn, thank you again for posting about the give-away I had a week ago. So many sweet gals came by because of you! I just started a new Bible Study blog, come by if you can.
Hugs and Blessings, Debra

Blank slates are a blast, have fun! I know you will. Clara-what a cute little handful!
I've been working on the fairy in a jar tutorial, I'm having such a good time!
XO,

Holy smokes Dawn- I know I've read your "about me" but I don't think I realized you had FIVE boys until I saw the picture. I have a friend who had three boys under the age of 4 and I remember giving her a plaque that said "there's a special place in heaven for the mother of three boys"- you must have a REALLY special place. What a great picture- I bet you just love it when you can all be together.

A Family Reunion! My favorite thing! Try getting a shot of 13 grandchildren at one time...Your boys are beautiful--don't tell them I said that. I'm sure you must have had a great time because you didn't even post for two days. You go, girl. Love, Sally

Can't wait to see how you accessorize your guest room, Dawn! How nice that you had your boys all together this past weekend AND you got a picture of them.

Dawn, i love how the new daddy has his protective hand over Noah's shoulder in that pic...your boys sound like they really love each other...that is so sweet...your guest room is looking lovely already...that bed is so pretty...

Hi Dawn. How nice to see photos of your boys and sweet Granddaughter. Don't you just love having the house full of them, especially now that they can feed themselves and go to the bathroom. LOL. The photo turned out great. Your bed in the guest room is beautiful. That was really a smart idea to paint the border and make it a display area. That's it girl think smart not work harder - way to kill to birds with one stone. (There had to be a nicer reference than that). I can't wait to see come along pictures as you go.
Hugs...Tracy

Great shots of your beautiful family! I have 3 children and, before digital, I would shoot a whole roll of film to get one shot that was "good enough" for the Christmas card picture! Then wait and get them developed to see if we had to do it again!
