Christmas was very fun this year, I'm a little sad to see it go. I love to decorate my house for the season. I used to do traditional red and green but this year decided to use my favorite colors red and pale blue/aqua and of course glittery snowmen. It's very cheerful to me. So here's just a few of my favorite things.

Cookie plates and cookie jar.
I love my red Kitchen Aid! It was a Christmas present from Ash a few years ago.

Hot chocolate station, we've consumed at least a couple gallons this month.
New bowls from dear friends.
A star I bought for $4.00 a few years ago that I spray painted white and added glitter to.
Special ornaments.
Our next door neighbor Holly, at our first home gave me this ornament for Prestin's first Christmas. I love it very much.

This one is from my sister, also very special to me.
Our first Christmas together as a married couple.
My friend Vil had this made for us last year.
The snowman is not actually an ornament but I stuck him in there anyways as well as a plate that looks like a peppermint candy and these pipe cleaner candycanes that Ainsley and Madi made at church that I arranged so that they make a heart.

No special reason I just really like this little guy.
And my new favorite, a little chocolate cake.
I love to decorate our Christmas tree, if I could I'd have one in every room of the house but I don't know how Mr. Boo would feel about that. The tree needs a little more blue but is still very pretty to me.

We've never had enough stockings for our family so this year I bought these for .99 cents each. They worked out alright but I would like to try and make ones for each member of the family for next year. Add that to my to-do-list.

And of course my advent calendar I made last year.
Love you all and hope you have a very Happy New Year!

Movie reviews

It was 13 degrees this morning when I was taking the kids to school, I think that's all I need to say about that.
So I forgot to tell you all how the movie was, unfortunately it wasn't very good. I've read all the books and the movies never measure up. The actors aren't all that great(sorry to all those die hard fans). I went with about 7 or 8 girls who've all read the books, we laughed throughout the movie at all the bad acting. And what's up with some of the actors wearing wigs, and bad ones at that! Even though we felt it wasn't all that great we all agreed when "Eclipse" comes out we will still go and see it. I know, it doesn't make any sense.:) So anyways that is one of the few movies that I've seen in the theaters in a long time. Lately we've been Red boxing it, hey you can't go wrong for just a buck. Here's some of the most recent that I've seen.


So sweet, definitely one of my all time favorites.

I just got done with this one and I loved it!

These last two movies are really sweet, what I loved most about these two movies is the relationships between married couples. Carl and Ellie in "Up" and Julia(Meryl Streep) and Paul, their marriages aren't fancy or overly romantic(which is just not realistic or practical but occasionally is nice). There is a mutual respect and equal partnership, and it's so sweet to see how much the husbands love and adore their wives and vice versa. I love seeing love portrayed like this even if one is a The next movie on my list is the new Harry Potter! These movies however do a great job at sticking to the books and I am literally going crazy waiting to see it.

Princess of the Potty

She'll hate me later for putting these pics up.

Well I'm all done potty training Ainsley. She's actually been done for awhile and has been doing great. She caught on quickly and is very proud of herself as am I. She was sick today, while we were waiting for the kids to get out of school she threw up all over herself. Luckily it was mainly contained to her and her car seat. Let me tell you what a joy it is to clean up a car seat full of puke. I have noticed that this blog is full of my kids bodily fluids, sorry:) So any who Sadie is quite the chunk and I know I need to put more pics of her on here. I'll have to do a whole Sadie post next time. She is over 15 lbs. now and has two teeth on the bottom. She is rapidly losing all her hair, I knew she would. We are all doing well, and despite today's little mishap we are all in good health. It's supposed to snow on Saturday, yuck! But the kids are excited, I think I'm going to hibernate this winter. We've been getting ready for Christmas, we decorated the tree and that's pretty much all the decorating we've done this year. We had a very nice Thanksgiving, we went to our Pastor's house Thanksgiving day and then to Connie and Shane's the day after. All in all a very nice Thanksgiving shared with people we love and who love us back. I thank God that He provided such wonderful friends for us here that have turned into family. I love how He takes care of all the details, we just need to sit back and wait on Him.
