Christmas Time!

For the past couple of years I have wanted to make picture ornaments of our family from past Christmas's.  I finally did it this year.  I made 8 ornaments for the past 8 years and also made 10 more so that as the years go by I can just add the picture and not have to re-make ornaments every year.  Here are two done and hanging on the tree.


I copied the idea from here.  I LOVE this blog and read it all the time.  She has great ideas and opinions.  I followed the tutorial except I used foam board instead of wood.  For $6 I was able to cut out 18 ornaments.

Just for fun, here are some cute photos of Santa baby and his siblings

Lullaby and Goodnight

I was switching a load of laundry today and set Tanner down on the dryer.  He was hungry so the next item on the agenda was to feed him.  However, after I switched the laundry he was sound asleep comforted but the soft vibration of the dryer.  I Love it!

Race Day

Jacob and David ran their first race on Thanksgiving this year.  They had a lot of fun participating and being a part of race day.  Our plan was to have one of us at the start line and one at the finish, unfortunately the race was a bit disorganized.  By the time I had ran all over trying to locate their race numbers we only had one minute to pin them on and then they were off.  Ben and I were left at the start line with two extra coats, a car seat with a baby inside(heavy), a diaper bag and a two year old.  We really tried to run to the finish line to see them cross, but we missed the big moment.  The boys still had fun and got running bags with a bunch of free stuff(garbage), snacks after, and a race day shirt.  The race this year was just .25 miles but Jacob says next year he wants to run the 5K.  We are proud of our little runners!

Sugar Anyone?

On Friday we were babysitting some of our friends kids and decided to make cookies with everyone.  When we asked one of the boys to put the sugar away, this is what happened.  When the sugar spilled I was grateful I laughed instead of getting angry.  There are times when I get really angry about things kids do but I find they are getting less often, and I am laughing more.
