Wreath for Sarah Lou

I had the best intentions by getting this complete, before her birthday.  Hey it's the thought that counts, right.  Hope she loves it.


Remember when I did the headband swap over at Danielle's blog Take Heart? She is pretty much my favorite blogger ever and will be designing my blog soon, she just doesn't know it yet.  She decided to do an ornament and scarf swap, aka scarfament.  I got paired up with a sweet gal named Kelly, her blog is Fly with Me, go check it out.  Thanks so much to my new friends.
I turn everything into a wreath!

Better out then in I'd say...

OMG, check out this freaking awesome beanie I found on Pinterest.  A lady in Australia makes them and sells them in her etsy shop.  $24 plus $10 shipping.  Tempting, very tempting...

Since Sawyer plugs her nose and toots her ear horns on a regular basis.  And every time she does it, I look at Jake and say, "I didn't know we could do that?" In the voice of Princess Fiona of course.

Had a great Halloween.  I am still sick but we made a day of it.  Went to my mom's work and said trick or treat to everyone.  Sawyer called a lady dressed as Medusa, pretty.  Got a new tooth brush and some condoms (not really, well we made her put them back), my mom works at the Health Department.  Stopped by Sawyer's "preschool" and said hello.  Little did Sawyer know, that's probably the last time she will go there.  Two colds, the stomach flu, diaper rashes and UTI's, in only two months, this mommy's had enough.  Went to Barnes and Noble to mommy could buy a new planner and some new cook books.  Sawyer has a bunch of candy and a "coffee" of her own aka milk.  She likes to just puts the whole candy in her mouth, including the wrapper.  Then we got the oil changed.  Went home took a nap.  I secretly put together half of her birthday present while she slept.

So this is Christmas...

So we went to Bacon's tree farm and got our first real tree ever.  Apparently, I did as a child from 0-8 got a real tree with red lights with my mom and real dad (whom I now have a semi relationship with=emails every six months) but I can't really remember actually walking and tripping over tree stumps and picking out whatever tree we wanted.  SO the really cool thing is Jake and I, love the same kind of tree, grand fir. So picking out one was not a problem.  Sawyer was real grouchy but we made it through it and Jake sawed that tree down with some help from her.  Originally we thought we would put it outside in our sweet covered porch but once we got it home, it was way too pretty to put outside.  So I have a giant Christmas tree with six strings, which is approximately 150 feet of white lights.  I'm so lucky.  I just want to buy new ornaments but don't want to spend the money.  This is a picture of our first tree as a couple in 2006. 

Five feet Walmart special..

We ran out of lights and had to go get more, even though we only had $200 bucks until payday.  We didn't care, who needs food on the table, when they can have Christmas light?
Nine foot Bacon's special!!!!!! (Jake was like sit next to it so we can see how big it really is, Ok babe because I'm so small.) We upgraded.  Can't wait until we upgrade my ring...BOO YAH.
