Well, a day late but I do hope you did have a merry Christmas! We still have one party tomorrow, and I am supposed to bring the dessert. Our oven got fried last week though, during that ice storm we had, because our power was off for so long and surged. So trying to find some desserts that would be yummy for Christmas without baking has been a little bit of a challenge. That means no cookies or cakes:(
Also, have you heard of the new law that has already passed that is going to make all handmade items for children under 12 illegal (without the proper, expensive testing)? Here's the link for the actual law: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpsia.pdf
It covers everything that is for children 12 and under. Yes, that means my little business too. So unless there are some amendments to the law, that's it for tons of baby companies out there. There is some new hope though. Read this from yahoo news: www.finance.yahoo.com/news/Toy-companies-cheer-proposed-apf-13915645.html

No really...I know it doesn't look that way from the pic but Slone really had a terrific time at his party! He wanted a "queen" birthday...that's short for Lightning McQueen from Cars. I made the cake and Gma Susan got him the Longhorn cap. We're not Texas fans, but Slone loves cows:) (His head really isn't that big either, he has on another hat underneath it).

Well, today I lucked out! This morning a post came through for a heavy duty ironing board and a playstation at the same place. I emailed her and went to pick it up. And it was a Playstation 2! FOR FREE! I was excited, because it's also a dvd player, and we don't have one!
Slone's already getting the hang of it:)

I am so sorry, but I have deleted your email address in my haste to clean up my overfilled inbox! Please know that I haven't forgotten about you, I just don't know how else to contact you:)
I have some new little security blankets made up and they are online!
To everyone else,
I'm also going making a bunch of new things, perfect for Christmas! So keep your eyes peeled:)

Well, I'm done caring. They stink, they bite, they are always in my house. As much as I love these 70 degree, first days of November, I have to agree with Matt and say that I can't wait til it freezes. Then the stinky little beetles will die!
And there is not just one or two, they come in swarms, especially when the sun is shining in my front door.
Also, I'm not a fan of Halloween. But Slone is now:) Here's what he got trick-or-treating at Aunt Renee's.
Lovely, isn't it? Bo is scared to death of it:) So yeah, it was perfect for Halloween. That's as scary as we get:)

Well, I thought that you might like to see what Charity did with his room! We saw the stripes idea in the Pottery Barn Kids magazine (I think). I think it's so cute. She worked forever on them:) I would have never lasted that long!
She also found the silly animal prints from a seller on etsy...I don't know his name but I can ask her if you want it. We had fun shopping for the frames for them. She got them for $4 apiece!

Then I realized it was from "the Sewing panel". Ha! They even addressed me as "Dear Sewer". Then they go on to say how "no two sewers are alike".
Maybe it's late, but that really struck me as funny:) Thought I'd share a laugh:)

Cookies that you just can't quit eating cookies.
Cookies that even when you feel sick you still keep eating them cookies.
Yes, they were good. But I don't know if they were that good or if I just don't have any self control.
They are called Cowboy Cookies and the recipe was in the back of Martha Stewart's October magazine. They have oatmeal, coconut, pecans and semisweet chocolate chunks in them.
Here are the boys right before bed. Now why, may I ask you, do they not do this when I am on the phone? It's like I live with a bunch of wild men while I'm trying to talk to my sisters. I still love this though...especially because they did it all on their own:)

You can follow this link to All Things Visual to get it for yourself!
Can you believe I did not take one single picture this weekend! We were so excited on Saturday morning that I forgot. Then we had to clean up and refold everything that evening. We were so tired on Sunday that it didn't matter. So here are some pics at the "apple store" or Christ's Orchard as you and I would call it:) The boys are totally in love with the turkeys. I have no idea why. They are one of the ugliest birds that I've ever seen.

Well, I'm going to get busy now but here is a pic of Bo that is just like his dad:)

Skip ahead two days later and the new sunglasses were laying on the floor of my van. I thought I'd better put those thing away before I step on them. So I ripped the tags off and opened my little cubby to put them up and there were my long lost sunglasses!
Am I getting old? Is it my kids? Is it my husband? It can't really be me:)

That big blue thing in there is my diaper case. It's vinyl and has a rocket ship applique. It's really cute. I bought it from Infantile on Etsy. Since we don't have to have a diaper change every time we're out now, it's nice for keeping everything together and neat.
I couldn't resist keeping this bag for myself! I love the colors, I love the shape of it! I'm going to put two more purses on MoreyGirl tonight!

Well, Slone got to go to the Fall Festival this past weekend with his Grandma Windish. And look what he got....
He was so excited about it. I couldn't tell him that I didn't want to hang it in the living room too. So there it is. Slone is so proud:) It was a super long day for him though. He got to ride all of the rides and play with Aunt 'Nee and Jason. He's still talking about it today.

Our conversation today:
Slone: Do you know what happens when you eat Airheads, Mom?
Me: No, what?
Slone: Your head gets really big like a balloon, then blows up!
Me: Really? Were do you come up with these things?
Slone: I seen it on a commercial.
Oh yeah, we watch way too much tv at our house too!

Now here's another one that I fixed and it's original. Another tutorial here from momolgy.
And this is my niece, Taylor.
I think that these textures are something different for the pictures. Gives them a old and vintage feel. Just some fun things for a Monday, I mean Tuesday.
