New Layout, New Month, New Holiday

I have finally taken the time to update my blog layout. I think it looks rather festive! We are off to get our Christmas tree tomorrow - making a day of it up in the mountains and hopefully some snow. We are getting things all decorated and ready for the next round of festivities. If I don't have your current mailing address - send me an email so I can add you to the list!

By the way, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and lots of food to eat. Duffy's parents were here and it was a lot of fun just hanging out and visiting. Hope that everyone's holiday was full of happy memories and time with those you love!

Class Feast

Today was Zoe's pre-school Feast - every kid got to bring their favorite food and it was a feeding frenzy. There is this little boy that I just love. He is one of those kids that you know when he grows up will be the one you don't like. These are just 2 of the things I heard him say today:
  • Zoe, I just love your sparkly jeans - they are beautiful.
  • Um, Zoe's mommy, I love your beautiful earrings and necklace - they are really pretty.

Ok, on to my food prep for tomorrow - I have dips to make, salads to prep and a turkey to brine. We are smoking a turkey this year - I CAN'T wait! Yumm-O as Teagan would say!

If I don't get a chance, have a wonderful Thanksgiving - we all have so much to be thankful for!

Ok, just a quick note - I feel so different this pregnancy than I did with the other 2! I have days where I feel great all day and then days like today where I feel like curling up and sleeping all day and nothing sounds good to eat. Oh, how I love this part of pregnancy!


I don't know if I've ever mentioned it before, but I LOVE lists - my life revolves around my to-do lists. Do I ever get to cross everything off - NEVER! I create another, updated, more current list to take it's place. But I love the feeling of accomplishment when I can cross something off. I have been known to actually write things on the list that I am just going to cross of 10min. later, but it's something crossed off, progress made, I'm on a roll!

Lately, I've been having a hard time with my lists - I don't know if it the never-ending list of things to do or that I just don't have the energy to do the stuff on the lists! I have added several sewing projects that I HAVE to have done by Christmas, so I figure I'm getting a great head-start just thinking about them now! For once, I'm almost finished with my Christmas shopping - I love Internet shopping!

Ok, enough; I should get to the things on my list - tutu's - here I come!

We've been adjusting to some changes around our house. My work schedule got cut back, from 20hrs to 15hrs, so I am home on Thursdays. It's been nice getting some one-on-one time with Teagan while Zoe is in school. I get more time to work on some of my craft projects too - I just finished a baby quilt for my friend Kristi and have a few projects to get done before Christmas.

I am working one afternoon a week at my mom's store - it's fun during the holidays and a little hectic and I always get the customers asking a zillion questions that I don't have answers too. I may start watching our friends little boy, Payton, on Thursdays too. He is so cute and the girls like having him around. Teagan keeps saying, "Hi, little baby" whenever he is around!

Oh yeah, the other BIG change at our house is that we are going to have another BABY! My due date in July 4th (just for you, Carol!!!) and we are all pretty excited. I've wanted to post about it but was waiting until after I saw Kristi this weekend - that is a hard secret to keep! It happened a little sooner than we expected since I had a hard time getting pregnant with Zoe and it took forever with Teagan - so it was a nice surprise this time around.

Ok, off to the park before it gets dark! Have a great night!

Fall Day

Today was one of those fall days I love. Most people would think a cold, rainy day in Washington is gloomy and sad, but it's been a good day! I put a roast in the crockpot this morning, a fire in the woodstove, took Zoe to school, did a bunch of laundry, listened to children play and am now making bread. When we picked up Zoe, she asked Teagan what we did while she was in school - Teagan told her she cleaned the bathroom! Not really, but I thought it was funny she needed to share that with her big sister. They are now taking late naps and will hopefully be in cheerful, happy moods the rest of the day!

Isn't she the CUTEST knome you have ever seen???

My Happy Ghost (with crooked eyes!!)

Zoe got this freaky mask at school - Teagan is terrified of it!

Proud of her little pumpkin!

Yes, I know I am a few days late but I didn't have a computer! Hope that everyone had a great Halloween! I've hidden half the candy in the freezer and the rest is going bye-bye by the end of the week!
