Aiming for progress, not perfection.

will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

hoping jenny is awake.

considering i kept her at my house until nearly 1:30 a.m. this morning, i'm hoing she is able to stay awake in class today.

i wanted to paint and decorate a kid-sized table for ellie's room for her birthday. it is going to replace her baby girl swing in the corner of her nursery.

well, there is a beautifully painted and decorated kid-sized table now in my possession, but i didn't lift a finger. some minor advising on my part, and jenny created a masterpiece. i meant to soak up her creative direction, not put her to work. but the minute i drew a heart that looked like a 3-year-old made it, it was apparent i needed to leave the work to the professionals.

you should come see it. it's fabulous.

Don't worry too much about Jenny. I tried to assist the tiredness with some (much-needed) chocolate this afternoon.
And, yes, we DO need a photo. I need to know what I will hire Jenny to do for me. :)

Thanks for inviting us to the party. I'm sorry we had to leave. Josh wouldn't quit fussing.

Your house is so cute. Love it.

Can I still send the thing with the hearts? I made it, and never sent it....
