Four!

Before I was married, before I had children, I had Bob. She was the sweetest dog, loved me unconditionally, no matter where I took her, where we lived she slept right by me and snuggled in.When I got married, Bob walked down the aisle right before I did and at the reception she was there, indirectly, and melted away at the end of the night. When I was pregnant with Grace I remember wondering/worrying if I was going to have enough love, enough love for both this new sweet baby and Bob. Am I going to love this baby as much as I love Bob? Obviously the answer was yes, and from the moment I saw Grace my heart doubled and filled with that same love for Bob and poured full of new love for my Grace Elizabeth. (Bob loved Grace as much as I did also) They both entertained me with posing for silly pictures. Not even two short years later, Wyatt Houston Simon joined our little family, and again, my heart was filled with a new love for my sweet little boy. And again I understood that my heart is …

sound like my mother

ugh...it happened to me tonight. Not that it hasn't happened before but tonight was a good one.My good pal Hope is staying with us and she was heading out to a wedding tonight. She wanted me to see the dresses she had in mind and each one of them i felt were too short! Before I was leaving for the evening, she asked me one last time to tell her what i though, I even asked, you want me to tell you the truth? and i said it...It is too short and you need to wear nylons with it...that is SO my mom talking, and it made me gasp! I even carried on to say she needed something more conservative, which is totally not her style! When i left that night i felt terrible, for telling her that the dress didn't look great & for sounding like my mother. As I was walking through the mall later that evening I cut through H&M and passed three different versions of the dress Hope wore to the wedding. I then decided that apparently she is young & hip and I am old and lame...and sound like…

beginning to look like Christmas...

Each year i am so annoyed by my christmas decorations, this year is just the same. Although I am happy with how this turned out. We had a 'treat calendar' to count down to Christmas the past few years I had made, it was fun but this year I wanted a re-haul. So, I headed to Target with something in mind and came back with these instead! 25 little mittens, I stamped 1-25 on them and hung them from the mantle. I added some little treats in each mitten for each day and a new count down to christmas! And I had it completed by December 3rd, that isn't too bad I thought. In the picture at the end you can see our little pal George. He is our elf from the Elf on the Shelf and the kids LOVE him! Even J wakes up each morning and races down to see where George will be that day. It hasn't really helped with the behavior but it is cute. What has helped with the behavior is 123 Magic, last week the kids were out of control! It was mayhem! So instead of reading Harry Potter and finish…
