Happy Birthday Darnell! {and Oliver previews}

Hello friends. I'm thrilled to be popping in to wish the amazing Darnell a fabulous birthday!  Ardyth is hosting a birthday party for Darnell (if you haven't already...pop on over and link up a birthday wish for Darnell). Darnell is one of the kindest bloggers in blog land.  Everytime I visit her blog I leave with a smile on my face.  She's a positive, fun loving soul and oh how I appreciate her.  Darnell, wishing you the very best of birthdays.  You brighten my days.


I played along with the Runway Inspired challenge for Darnell's birthday. The father's day card she made for her son with her grandson reminded me of the butterflies she used on her card.

I also thought I'd share a couple of pictures of Jonathon and Marcel. They are in Oliver next week and I snapped a few pictures at their dress rehearsal last night. Seriously...they are so cute and talented :)!

Your boys look great all dressed up in their theatrical attire! Oliver was here in our town last week, but we didn't get the chance to go! It's one of my favorites! :)
