Handmade Ornaments

My heart has been softened and I wish I could take back everything I ever said about handmade ornaments. Early this year I told Kurt how much I love perfect Christmas trees. I love walking into boutiques and looking at the matching ornaments, color coordinated ribbon and the nice expensive decorations. It doesn't stop with the tree, I also want the whole house to be perfect from decorations to the candle scent. I can't help it, I'm just that way, and it's a dream I'll probably have until I die. Back to the handmade ornaments, I even went as far as saying that I didn't know what I was going to do when our kids bring home ornaments that they made at school and want to hang them on our tree. I know, I know, I'm a terrible mom. Well that day came, and I have to admit I was taken back and so touched by the little red sled made out of popsicle sticks with Sadie's school picture glued onto to it. I melted and let her put it where ever she wanted to. I still want a perfect tree, but now I want one with perfectly beautiful handmade ornaments.

FYI: At this very moment we are getting dumped on and my poor husband is out there plowing away and will probably be doing so for the rest of the day. Thank you Kurt for working so hard for our family!!! Also a big thanks to our neighbor Scott who has used his snow blower to clear our sidewalk every time it has snowed. I really do appreciate that.

What I want

About a month ago I went to the Christmas Show at the South Town Expo and fell in love with a few items. My latest want would have to be the Lily Sling made by Mod Mum. I've had three kids and wished I had one of these slings and now that I'm pregnant again I'm pretty sure I'm going to have get what I want. So here it is my newest want.

Secret Santa

To our surprize we received a gift from Secret Santa the other night, a gingerbread choo choo train kit. The girls were so excited and are convinced that they received this present because they are the "goodest girls ever". We had so much fun putting this train together and I know we'll have even more fun eating all of the candy off of it. Thanks Secret Santa!!!

Kurt and Sadie decided to have fun with the left over frosting, kind of gross if you ask me.

I'm down to the last of my Pooh On U shirts and Onesies. If you need a last minute gift or something for a white elephant exchange, check out my etsy shop @ see what's left, there are a couple of adult sizes and a handful of onesies.

Weekend In Park City

This past weekend we were able to get away for the night up in Park City. Let me just say I LOVE Park City. We arrived a little early and went to the Olympic Park and watched the ski jumpers practice. It was amazing to me to see these young men between the ages of 16-20 jumping 90-120 feet down a mountain side. I just couldn't imagine taking that jump. After that we went to the Westgate Resort and listened to their long presentation in order to stay the night there. We survived and didn't give into their spill and then used their money to eat at two of the restaurants, one for dinner and the other for breakfast. I know I am so cheap but hey it was fun and I loved ever minute of it. I wish we could get away more often....someday.
Here are the jumps at Olympic Park, too bad that is mostly man made snow.
Who knew that Kurt was such an amazing skier?
Kurt's dessert, can I say GREAT presentation!!!
Let's do that again.

Cute Hair Accessory Party

Kind of last minute but just wanted everyone to know I'm hosting a hair accessory party this Wednesday night @ my house from 6-8pm. My friend Britt makes all of her pieces and they are the best I've seen. These cute hair clips, bows and headbands make great stocking stuffers or baby shower presents. Bring any outfits that you need to match.
