All about me:

My photo
I am a wife of 32 years, mom to one daughter and two sons. My husband and I are DIY'ers when it comes to home and garden projects. We built our house in 1988 on a vacant piece of property. Two of the cutest little boys ever call me Grandma. I am an RN part time and live on 4 acres near Yosemite. The statement "full of contradictions and old fashioned yet modern" describes me perfectly. I love vintage and antique things and have since I was a little girl rummaging through my grandparent's house. It is difficult for me to pass on an estate sale..... just ask my husband.

Noah's Palate Surgery

Noah had his cleft palate repaired at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (Stanford) in March.  He was such a trooper and thankfully has healed well. It's just so hard to watch a little one in pain and not be able to explain it to them. The photos are of Noah immediately after surgery and on the way home from the hospital.  He wore arm "splints" for 2 weeks to prevent him from putting anything in his mouth and damaging the area.  We are all relieved he is doing so well.
