What to do...

When your 3 year old is on the potty doing her business
and your goofy 1 year old is waiting for her bath
and watching her sister (yes apparently when we pee it is a family ordeal)
and suddenly she starts to pee on the rug!?!

Give an impromptu lesson on sharing....and grab your camera!!!

Ohhh they are so going to hate me for this someday :).

Easy peasy

My new favorite sewing project
A friend emailed me this easy pattern
It took an hour to complete and I just love it!
Can't wait to make some more...

Topping it Off

As promised some pictures of our new tree
I love the new topper we got for it too - Lilly and Scott picked it up for me
I think it's supposed to go outside (the topper) but it looks pretty darn good up there I think

Happy Tuesday :)!

Deck the Halls

Did some Christmas decorating this weekend
after we could move again after all the turkey we ate

Check out our *new* tree
I just love it
It's tall, it's wide, it just makes the whole house feel like Christmas

Sorry - thought I had a better pic of the tree...but cute picture of Nolee!

Our two little elves really enjoyed helping decorate the tree this year
Of course one elf enjoyed taking the decorations off more than putting them on... 

And here is Nolee's impersonation of a marshmallow :)

It's probably crazy but I'm so looking forward to our first big snow
snowmen, snow angels, snow forts
hot chocolate, getting cozy with my family by our awesome *new* tree

**One of Scott's co-worker's gave us that tree last year
(which I promise to take better pictures of)
which was so nice and thoughtful of her...espcially if you had seen our tree last year
