Adams' Glass Studio Open House

Well, hello there! Thanks for not giving up on me. We've been A LOT busy lately with the glass studio and preparing for the grand opening and open house. CeeLo and I have been living there during the day and husband has been there burning the midnight oil. We set up a pack-n-play and CeeLo and her cousins had a big time :)

After long hours of hanging glass, sweeping, dusting, placing, replacing... WE DID IT!!!!

The candy kitchen was open and in full swing AND we had delicious fudge and divinity samples for everyone to taste!

Husband even squeezed in a tiny bit of Black Friday shopping and grabbed a few poinsettias for decoration. 

 I am so proud of how everything turned out and so thankful for everyone that helped to pull everything together!! 

 Including my parents! Mom came down to help watch my girl while dad and I were busy hanging panels, while Husband and my father in law were tucked away in the basement creating these stunning pieces!


Whatcha think? These old doors were jazzed up with paint to create a place to display these paintings. 

Just looking back at all these pictures makes me so excited! So many people came out to support us and celebrate this long year of rebuilding. I feel blessed to be a part of such a special Open House. 

And in true spirit of Open House tradition, this dynamic duo created the 2012 angels.

Here are a few of the other items on display at the new Adams' Glass Studio:

Let us know if you see anything you'd like. I'll be glad to take orders from here :)

Here are some angels from the past....

...and some of the grand kids that they represent! (With Meme of course.)

Now we are gearing up for our official Grand Opening this Thursday at 1pm. If you are in Troy we'd love for you to come join us for the official ribbon cutting!

Happy Halloween from our gang! CeeLo dressed as a prissy little kitty in a tutu for the daytime ensemble. I took her by to visit her friends at school and we got to see both of her old teachers. They were so excited to see those chunky legs again and she got lots of hugs and kisses. 

Its so hard to ever get a really good shot of her teeth, I just had to stick this one in here for the out of town friends and family to see!

There was a quick wardrobe change before the evening activities. 

Is this not the cutest Tigger that you've ever seen!?!? 

And not just any Tigger...but one with bows on her little toes!!!

First stop: Uncle Jon and Aunt Shelley's! 

There are so many rules to Teenager-hood...Here's one regarding Halloween and Trick-or-Treating: Apparently if you're 17 its okay to hang out with your tiny sister, but if you're 13 you can only take a quick picture before ditching your family to roam the neighborhood with your pals.

You can tell by this Tigger's eyes just how close to bed time it was getting :)

But she hung in like a champ. ...with just a little help from the paci.

Remember Bachelor #4
Well, here he is as the cutest elephant on the block!! Of course we had to get these guys together, even if they were clearly occupied by something far more interesting than having their picture taken! 

Then we trick or treated at the God Mother's house, and she had the best reaction to my little Tigger! Sadly, Tigger put the kibosh on the costume moments after arriving, so this was the last photo of the evening. 

I was impressed with Tigger. She hung in there well after bed time and was more tolerant of the whole costume thing than I had expected. ...especially considering her love for bows or other things on her head. 

Diva's 17th Birthday

We've had a lot going on lately. After G's Birthday Week and Gatlinburg, we were in full swing Birthday Week for Diva! Her birthday request was a pizza party with these ladies!

They had pizza, cookie cake, cruised on the golf cart and jammed out to their favorite tunes on the surround sound. I made an awesome DJ :)

Uncle Jon and Aunt Shelley stopped in to crash the party!

The day was a huge success and I can't believe that we have a 17 year old! A high school Junior!! An almost  legit adult!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go medicate Husband!!!
