filing cabinet

So in the midst of all the craziness I am trying to organize my paperwork and set up a filing system for my potential clients. I saw some great ideas on pinterest-all I had to do was find an old filing cabinet. After numerous thrift store excursions, I finally scored one at a yard sale last weekend.



Stephen's Birthday, promotion and Disneyland

Stephen turned 11 this year. Gone are the days of big parties. He had a friend sleep over. I took the boys to Mountasia to burn off some energy. Laser Tag, bumper boats and video games.

I thought I would throw in some comparison pictures this time.

Stephen has a sudden fascination with Panda bears. I saw these cupcakes on Bakerella. Perfect for Stephen's birthday. They were relatively easy to make and super cute. 

Stephen was promoted from 5th grade to 6th grade. (When did they stop calling it 'graduation?). Grandpa Kempe drove up from Tustin to join in the celebration. 

Mitzi took this great family photo of us before we left for school. 

I am not one for having my picture taken. However, Mitzi always does an awesome job :)

Here are some promotion pictures:

Stephen has had this desire for pie. So off to Marie Calendar's we went. 
One happy boy-apple pie and ice cream.

I always worry about keeping Stephen busy over the summer. We are off to a running start. Sleep overs, bowling and... a special trip to Disneyland-and that's only in the first week of summer vacation. 
Stephen's grandpa invited us to Disneyland. Even though some of the lines were long, we were able to ride everything we wanted to.

Last year when we went to Disneyland Stephen wasn't quite tall enough to ride Autopia alone. This year was an entirely different story.

More summer fun to come :)
