… Is singing loud for all to hear.
Unless you are me. Then you just spread ear pain.
What I’m trying to say is, we are decorated.
And I love it.
I am so grateful that we will have at least one Christmas here.
Even though Junior might not remember it,
D and I will never forget it.

Remember when I made happy little wreaths and hung them in all my merry little windows?
I didn’t stop there. Oh no, I didn’t.
Actually, I would have. I was sleepy. But D started pulling the bigger wreaths out and asking how to go about making bows for them. I don’t doubt he would have done a fine job, but there was...
Once Upon a Weekend…

Once upon a weekend approaching Christmas, a young, vivacious, and aesthetically pleasing mother took her precious little boy to meet Santa Claus. On the trip in to meet him, the mother explained to the boy the magic of Santa; of how he could sit upon his jolly lap and describe toys of his wildest dreams, and if he is a good boy, Sant...

Don’t get too excited, people in my real life. I’d love to say that you’re all getting really neat gifts I made with my own two hands out of love… But gift certificates are nice too!
Just in case I get a wild hair or extra hours in the day, I have found some pretty neat DIY for Christmas.

Thanksgiving was great and blah blah blah. Food and family and blah. No one cares now that it’s over, right? Now we’re all like,
Know what’s sad? D doesn’t find Will Ferrell as hilarious as I do.
Him: I love you.
Me: I love lamp.
Him: Are you drunk?
Anyway, now that we got the whole ‘being thankful for...

Thanksgiving is tomorrow. The bird is thawed, everyone (except me) has their dishes assigned to them, and I’ve got the house as ready as it’s going to get.
That’s right! My dining room chairs are done! We won’t all be sitting Indian style on the floor this year. I know my 82 year old grandma will thank me. Ho...

If I know one thing in life to be true, it is that things will never happen as you plan.
For instance: Building your dream home, living in it for six months, then moving out of it.
It’s still hard to believe!
My D got a new job. It’s with the same company, but he was offered the chance to be in a...

My grandma came over for a visit recently, and brought some pumpkin doughnuts to share with us.
Me: Want some coffee?
Me: OK, I’ll go get D.
True story. I’m rather inept in the kitchen, so imagine my dismay at hosting Thanksgiving. The safest bet is to leave D in charge of the turkey, and just make all our guests b...

Did you even know I was gone? I was in Colorado, yo!
I had a work conference, but took my boys with me to play.
Through the week, we stayed at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Absolutely gorgeous. This is the view from our room.
We lucked out with the weather and on the first day took Jr to one of my favorite spots on the planet...
They Can’t All Be Winners..

Yesterday, while my main man was working outdoors, and my little man was napping, I got bit by the crafty bug.
Dun, dun, DUNNNNNNN!!!
I remembered that we have a perfectly good pallet leaning against the trailer we still have on our property full of leftover building material.. So I ran out and asked D if we needed it for any particular...
