Here's the promised video! I took it on my iphone, so the quality is obviously not high. But I'm not a filmmaker and don't aspire to be one, so there you go!

Coming soon!

There have been SO many changes going on at Green Acres, and more to come! Soon I'll be uploading a video to my Youtube channel showing y'all the progress on our remodel, instead of posting a gazillion pictures. So keep an eye out, when I put it up I'll be sure to include it in a blog post, and if you follow me on Facebook it will be there too.

Have a great day!

Libbey's 10th birthday

Libbey Brin Beyer turned 10 years old today!! She is growing up so fast! We threw her a birthday party last Saturday, and we're celebrating as a family today.:)

Our good friend Robin made the most beautiful birthday cake and matching cupcakes! 

Libbey picked out all the decorations too.

Mom had lined up some fun games for the girls, including Bingo, with prizes.

Next they played Pin the Tail on the Donkey! That was very entertaining!

Libbey with all of her friends.

Caroline pretended to blow out the candles too, apparently.

Present time!

Musical chairs is always fun!

Kaylee won!!

Dad and Mom surprised Lib with a new bike! It's just right!
