Busy Day!

Today has been a busy day at Contentment Acres. Brandon and Clint have divided my office to create a bedroom. The new wall is up and the door is about to be installed. We had plans to do this before we knew about the little one on the way.

For a few more hours, you can get a two free collages from Order them separately and use BFCOLLAGE and THANKSGIVING coupon codes. They will be ready to pick up at the store in about an hour. Thank you to Linda-Mom for telling us!

I looked up bunk beds to get ideas for the one I am designing for Brandon's new room. Here's a sofa that converts to a bunk bed!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We have had a wonderful day full of friends, activites, good food, laughter and God's love. We ended our day beside a campfire. This November weather has been glorious!

For Homeschool Graduation

We are very happy with our purchase from Economy Cap and Gown. On Monday, we ordered two cap, gown and tassel sets with extra tassels. It arrived this morning in perfect condition. The fit is just as we expected, and the quality is the same as a set we had ordered from another company for $10 more. The sets were $16.25 each and the tassels were $1.75 each. I had forgotten to include the extra tassels, so I contacted the company via e-mail. Within an hour, my order had been fixed, and I received an e-mail back confirming the change. We are very pleased with the ease of ordering, price, quality, customer service and fast shipping with this company. Thank you, Mike, of Economy Cap and Gown for fixing my mistake!

I was lining up for a shot of the water with the camera sitting on the sand when Hannah ran to get some sand. Sometimes the best shots are the ones you don't plan!
