A recap and a sneak peek...

Hello there friends...we had a great weekend off...too bad it's already over and my honey just left for work again...sigh...I miss him already...I truly do...the house is happier when we are all here together...I know Moses loves having his dad around to romp and play...especially since his mom can barely stand up and sit down. :) Thought I would share some of the highlights of our weekend...
Saturday morning we got bundled up and went on an ornament hunt...had to be bundled up because we were going to our downtown mall to hunt...it's all outdoors. We had just enough time to snag three fun new ornaments before it got too cold and started to rain. :)
Just love the vintage plane up there, the vintage carousel and not shown is a sweet little vintage train too. :) Love to see my tree being covered in all things boy...
Saturday night, Doug and I had our annual Krumkage making party(of two). :) These are a hit with his coworkers when we give them as little gift bundles...and it's fun to hang out without the distractions of TV or a toddler (Moses was already in bed).
Of course we had to sample a few to check for quality...
Then this afternoon we headed out to a nearby town to meet Doug's brother and his wife for lunch as they passed through on their way to NJ...Moses was excited to see them...even if he did clam up for the first few minutes of seeing them. :) When we got home the boys napped and I got all the cookie bundles ready for Doug to take to his coworkers...notice the plain brown boxes and nearly plain string? That is me holding back for my husband...if it were up to me you know they would be all Christmased up and fun. :)
I also found time to start work on some fun new things for the shop after Christmas...I just adore my fun new stamp...a personal motto...look for it on some hand dyed tags...
And I am hoping that you will love these sassy new bird tags as much as I do...LOVE how they are covered in goodness...and ready for a bird party. :)
I will also be having some limited edition towels...in fun candy colors. :) Get them when you see them because these colors won't be available for long...also in the works I have some cute owls, a fun new twist on clipboards, some cupcake goodness, heart-y things for Valentines, cards and more...hope you are as excited as I am. :)

Tomorrow I plan to give you a tour of my Christmas tree...I would love to see yours too...be sure to come back and comment on the tree tour post so I can come see. :)

Hope this finds you refreshed and ready to celebrate the awesome gift of CHRIST this week!! :)

xoxo

P.S. Some questions I have been meaning to answer: My camera is the Nikon D40x, the steam vac that I bought and LOVE is this one.
Someone asked how I decide who to send the Christmas Cheer packages to? I just send to who comes to mind...people who have been good to me over the year or people who I think need to know they are loved...don't worry about not being able to do for everyone...do what you can..if everyone did what they could then there would be a lot less to do in the world. Wouldn't you rather let ten people know they are loved and thought about then none? :)

P.P.S. I forgot to add a highlight for Moses...
Santa drove by our house on a firetruck!! With lights and all...Moses was actually thrilled and has talked about it since then...I was in the upstairs bathroom helping Moses on the potty...by the time I realized what it was (he came through last year too) I had to hurry and RUN downstairs (pregnant women should NOT run) with a half-naked child so that he could see...apparently he is OK with Santa if he is one a firetruck. :) We managed to get a diaper and pants on him so that he could get outside and see up close...I think it may have helped his Santa phobia by seeing him on one of his favorite things. :)
Pin It!

I know what you mean about not being able to sit down and stand up. It's got to be so much harder having a very active boy that wants you all the time as it is really hard with a smaller younger but still very active girl!

That is so funny that you are talking about seeing Santa on a firetruck and Moses with no pants on... my hubby's a fireman and we rode around the firetruck a couple days ago, just like this, with Santa. The weird thing is there was a mom that was holding a little girl, the little girl was dressed, but the mom was in her underwear. I can see it the other way around (like your situation) but being a mom, I would NEVER go out in public in my undies! Random, I know.. Have a good Christmas! :0)
