My boy's baptism. Theme I like to look for rainbows!

When my little's baptismal date was coming up I knew I wanted a theme.  I like CTR but I needed something else to go with it, so where did I turn to?  PINTEREST! Of course.  I love the song
                                             "When I am baptized"

                                          Saw this on pinterest and had my friend make it
                                                              It turned out AMAZING!

                                                           I went a little ROY G BIV nuts
                                I had one of our Young Women sing this primary song and I passed out the words.  We invited a lot of friends who were not members of our faith and it was good to be able to share such a wonderful and important day with them, and include them.

 Instead of cutting the cake for everyone (we had over 100 people attend) we decided to do the oreos and that way the kids could just grab them.  I would recommend next time suggesting two per kid.  They were taking one of each color and we ran out.

               A HUGE salad and yummy fruit bowl was very refreshing and a perfect side to our bbq

A'hoy Matey

I actually have zero idea why but bead board reminds me of planked wood and then that reminds me of planks, then onto pirates from there.  So here is my pirate planked desk redo
 So I sanded it COMPLETELY down on the top so I could a nice new coat of dark walnut stain.  Then I sanded the rest but not all the way down.  Next I painted it white... after the stain was completely dry I added two coats of polyurethane to make it shiny as well as protect it. I loved this flip and it lasted on craigslist for about half of a day before it was out of my garage and life forever.  I was sad to see it go, I really like this desk.  I also kept the original hardware which saves $ and I thought it was a nice contrast.

                              See what I mean about the planks.... no?
