papa carved the turkey
the girls drank bubbly.
callie only ate the marshmallows off the sweet potatoes.
and addie sampled a very large piece of cranberry.

the day after, i had a slice of this pumpkin pie for breakfast!

papa and a very plump walker had a good snooze.
it was a fine thanksgiving, a very fine one indeed.

i have so much to be thankful for in my life,
my husband, his job, that he has stayed safe.
my children, they are healthy and beautiful.
for knowledge of the savior and his plan.
for loving family.
for genuine friends.
these things are most important to me, but the list could go on and on.
i hope you have a most wonderful Thanksgiving.

christmas shopping

the boutique this weekend was a success and im so happy! mark was such a wonderful support to me through this. i dont know why, but these kind of things always stress me out. just putting my stuff out there for everyone to see, and hoping they like it, for some reason gives me major anxiety.

i have been wanting to make these rosette headbands for awhile now, and a few days before the boutique decided i would sell them. they sold like hot cakes! im so in love with them, the colors, how simple and sweet they are in your hair. adorable.

it felt really amazing to have friends and family come out and support me and all the other vendors. it was a really great event.

so great, that im going to vend at another boutique on Dec. 4th and 5th. come for a great holiday shopping experience. i will be making more headbands for the event and will have oodles of earrings to pick from.

hope to see you there!

thanks for all your support and love!

feeling the crafting vibe

i have the urge to craft. it has been quite a long time since i have had that feeling, to be honest. but it feels good to put all worries and "to dos" aside and do something that makes me feel good and that lifts my spirits. so today i sewed with son on my lap, in my craft room, listening to some good tunes. just like old times.
now where did my thimble go because my finger is killin me!
ps. dont forget about the boutique i will be vending in this saturday! fun fun!
check out the site to get all the info.

this is so not easy... but i love them.

i have 3 car seats in the middle row of my van.

we went to the library this morning. ive never had so many people staring at me.
i had an old lady tell me i have my hands full.
i couldnt think of anything else to say to her other than, " yes i do!"
after she passed, i watched my little girls walking in front of me with a bounce in their step. i looked down and my son in his sling, wrapped up so cozy and grunting the way he does.
and the thought came to me,
i do have my hands full...
they are so full of love.

2 weeks

my baby boy is 2 weeks old.
i've been peed on twice.
thrown up on once.(not spit up mind you.)
done massive amounts of laundry.
been up all hours of the night, to be expected.
i've stood in the shower and cried.
my girls have eaten halloween candy for breakfast.
my children are not adjusting so well.
my toilets have rings.
but he.... he is so cuddly and warm and smells so good. and i love him to pieces.

even if he keeps me up every hour at night.
