i can't do it.  i can't decide how to proceed with this blog, but the private thing just isn't going to happen.   i know some of you were thinking i didn't "invite" you.  nope, i didn't invite anyone!  i never got around to that...too much work!  i need an easier solution.  so until i can figure that out, i thought i would let you know our household has grown!  we have a new little handful.  his name is harrison.  kennedy is a big dog brother!  and elisabeth loves to train him.  we are all back to school here and my full time teaching job is going well.  i have always said i feel alive when i teach.  i'm alive!  yipppeee!  and by the looks of the picture above, i think teaching is in the genes, right, mom?

I was thinking that you might need to apply to the next season of Design Star on HGTV based on what you have done in your own home!! If this whole teaching thing doesn't work out, you never know!

Bethy ~~ So happy to see you post again! Is the new puppy a labrador? He's so cute and he's pretty big already!

I was beginning to wonder...I thought "I KNOW I sent her my address to be added to her "private" blog - she allowed me to her Face Book...hmmm I wonder..." :) lol

Glad you're back.

I too have a new addition to our family. I have a whole post in honor of him. Check it out. His name is HENRY and STELLA is her big sister (10-1/2 yrs old) It's fun to have a "baby" in the house again.

Bethey,I am so happy you did not go private with your blog for long...

I went to see your blog and it was gone, I was so upset.

I love your decorating so much.The new puppy is adorable! We have a new one too.I have to blog about him yet though.He has been here a week and no one claimed him, so it looks like he was dumped.We thought so, but weren't sure.We are keeping him.

Welcome back,Jen

Oh I'm so glad you're back. I thought for sure I wasn't invited to the party. Congrats on the new addition. He's adorable.

I'm in Toronto. I get so much enjoyment out of seeing your decorating ideas and projects (you have such a great eye).

For that selfish reason, I am glad you've rethought the private blog thing (at least for the time being).

Thank you for coming back. I have always loved your blog and was so sad when it went private.

I'm so glad I decided to check to see if your blog is public again! When I did not get an invitation I was a little confused:)! I love your decorating ideas!
