This is how the plot SHOULD have gone.

Ummm... let's just say no introduction would be sufficient for this piece of brilliance.

Thanks for posting it, Vern. Gosh, I love that girl.

Christmas Photo Session

The latest and greatest...

Sometimes Being a Flake is Not Really ALL My Fault

Remember way back when I told you all I had this awesome project in the works and it would be finished soon? Yeah, me neither. That post was how long ago?

But anyhow I did have a project I was really excited about. And I did work really hard on it for a really, really long time. And you know what? It got all jacked up because there are lame brain marketing people that put the words "stain-able" on wood putty labels and totally deceive amateurs like me. Yes, it's true. The putty is stain-able. However, they happened to leave out the minute detail that even though it is stain-able there is no way in Hades it's gonna match the rest of the wood.

So I actually "finished" the project back while Jeremy was in Florida, over a month ago. But now the finished project is sitting in the garage waiting for me to get motivation to re-strip it, re-sand it, and wait for it to get above 50 degrees so I can start staining all over again. Yeah, maybe I'll wait just a little bit longer...

In other news there's a new blog post over here!

Do You Hear What I Hear?

It's the 2nd of December. I can not believe it. While quite often time has seemed to creep by the last 8 months, it also has had an uncanny knack for flying by as well. Now, if I ever manage to multi-task like that you better watch out. But just between you and me I think we're safe in assuming that won't happen. I'm already feeling the full effect of the Christmas Spirit and it's going be one perfect month. We are so blessed.

*holiday decor (which I semi- scaled down from last year) is up
*Jeremy braved the roof and strung up the most perfectly straight line of lights ever
*oohed and ahhed over three precious newborn babies
*we've enjoyed lots of quality time with family
*explained, in depth, why the Who's were happy even after the Grinch stole their "things"
*purchased a beautiful tree (with a coupon even)
*decorated this fabulous tree with mismatched, sentimental, and perfect ornaments
*read the book "I Believe In Santa Claus"
*named and placed our "scout elf" who is keeping a watchful eye on our little ones
*cranked up the tunes on the Christmas Station
*finished almost all of the simplified shopping
*making exciting plans to spend Christmas with my family
*Christmas photo, for the grandkids, is scheduled for this afternoon
*our manger is being prepped for Baby Jesus' arrival with lots and lots of kind deeds

I think the only thing we're lacking is some Holiday baking... it's in the works.

Merry Christmas!
