A little peak!

24 Dec

At some of the awesome gifts we got for Christmas Eve!! Thank you Nana, Dodo, and S&J!!

A bookcase for E! She is going to loooove this thing! This girl has a TON of books, and she will be getting a TON more! You can never have too many books 😉

A NEW SEWING MACHINE FOR ME!! Holy heck this was a surprise! Never in a million years did I think I was ever going to get one of these babies! I figured I would be pinching pennies for a lifetime just to get it! This is going to create some seriously crafty things 😉 and I already have a list of things to do 😛

And the best thing that ever happened to B 🙂 He has been playing it since we got home! hahaha. I love him and his addiction to video games! It’s funny how a lot of people complain and don’t understand the world of video games but I picture it to be a lot like my addiction to crafty things, my sister’s love for recipes & books, and my mom’s love for christmas. We all have our little world we like to be in and I guess it helps that when I was in middle school I spent my entire Saturday’s playing Mario Party, Tetris, Sims, and much more 😛 I totally get him!

Well that’s just a sneak peek! We got a TON of other amazing stuff, and a ton more to come!

Hope everyone else is enjoying Christmas as much as we are!

Love Always,

One week away..

19 Dec

Only one more week until Christmas!! This year it is going to be a little bit chaotic but we’ll make it work somehow. We are booked for events from Christmas Eve to Monday night! I guess I should say that E is booked for events because everyone really just wants to see her 😉 It’s nice having so much family live so close by but it makes for one busy holiday season! I’ve been picking on B the whole time because almost his entire Christmas list was video games and DVD‘s and I keep telling him he’s not going to get a chance to play or watch any of them until the weekend after and he keeps ignoring me 😛 Poor guy.. he’s been in a kind of slump too because there are so many new games that I know he is dying to play and his old ones are getting .. well old. Only one more week B!!!!

I am excited to see how E reacts this Christmas since last year she had no idea what was going on! She probably still won’t know whats going on but she will know how to rip open boxes and play with toys! Silly little girl. She gets more adorable each day.. and it’s just amazing how fast she learns things! We have been trying to get past the Eh Eh Eh stage where they stand there, point to the sky, and expect you to know what Eh means and get it for me now!! We have been telling her what things are and trying to get her to say anything back. Even if it is no where close to the word it would make my day! She is somewhat getting it but she often refers to dat and ezzz. (That and Please). I realize that she is not at the age to start talking but why not go ahead and get started in that direction!?

Speaking of children and words .. you know that commercial that comes on TV (specifically the Sprout Channel) all day long!? The Your Baby Can Read commercial? I am curious to see if anyone has actually tried and, and if it worked!? I don’t know if I could keep E’s attention long enough to do this and I sure as heck don’t want to pay for it. I wonder if I could make these on my own at home? I mean all it is, is flash cards, pictures, and showing them the action.. If anyone has any feedback on this leave me a comment or send me an email!!

Well since it is the last week if Christmas it’s about time I start making my last-minute list of things I need to do! Yes I have been putting off everything and procrastinating .. time to get creative 😉

Love Always,

J
