We had a really fun Thanksgiving this year...we went up to Adam's brother Tony and his wife Marcy's House in Idaho. They are such a cute family and we had so much fun with all the kids. Every year they decorate gingerbread houses and this is mine and boyfriends. I was very proud of the bow that I made out of gum drops. However...the roof caved in later that day.
Since the market is slow boyfriend decided to get a new part time job.
Im such a jokester...he didn't really.  Tony and Marcy's good friends own a McDonald's and they close the store for Thanksgiving and have a big breakfast there for friends and family.

What to do???

How lucky am I to be able to do what I love from home and make money. I might be the luckiest girl EVER. But lately I have been having a hard time with some unruly customers. Now don't get me wrong 98% of my customers are amazing...but I don't know what to do about the other 2%. Sometimes I feel like I should just stop all together...maybe I'm extra sensitive because Im pregnant. Its hard when you make something from scratch with your hands and you get angry customers like "this had one less petal on it than in the photos", "It didnt get to me fast enough"
Nothing serious...just things that take the joy out of getting payed for doing something you love. I know a lot of people who get to do things like this for a living and would love to know your secret for keeping the enjoyment there? Maybe I shouldnt be blogging about this but it has been on my mind and I have nothing else to blog about...other than the fact that Sarah got to see her little baby yeaterday and I couldnt be more happy for and SO jealous! 

And...sister and I are in the market for some tickets for the midnight showing of twilight tonight? We might be a bit of procrastinators.  But let me know if you have any ideas!!!

Babies first ultrasound photo...

Just look at little peanut!
 I had my first doctors appointment today and we got to hear baby peanuts little heart beat. I didn't get an ultrasound so we still are not exactly sure how far along I am but the due date right now is beginning of June.

Your little heart beat was like music to my ears today...I think you made it beat extra hard just so I could hear. Thank you for doing that.

Im still alive...

So, maybe I don't look quite as lovely as this gal but its day 4 and Im still going at it with the little ladies. Adam has been such a help I cant thank him enough...driving up every night to stay with us. I am BEAT, but I love these 2 girls so much. It's crazy how hard it is but you just love them so much it makes it all O.K. There was an incident at the chick-fil-a involving me retrieving a child  out of an obstacle corse of sorts and a scene that included some very rude stares.

Don't get me wrong I love Halloween...but I cant wait to get my Christmas up this year! I just got my Halloween down because I haven't been feeling so well lately.
 I will be taking care of the girls for the next 5 I wont be able to start getting Christmas up until sometime next week. Say a little prayer that I will feel good while Im watching the girls!!!

And a few Christmas items for the shop!

So ill...

This is NO good. I have had a rough couple of days as far as the morning sickness. I could only wish it was just in the morning. Saltine crackers and the 7up are my new best friends. Nothing much else going on...hence the reason Im blogging about feeling ill.

Oh, little are sure to be worth it!

A broken heart full of love...

So, I had MY girls all day yesterday and we had so much fun! I love these little girls so much it hurts. They broke my heart a couple of times but I guess thats just the price you pay.

Broken heart #1 came when we were at my sister-in-law Lyndsy's birthday party and the girls were dancing their little hearts out...dead serious. I had big crocodile tears in m eyes. And then Monie dancing with they were lovers, just about did me in.

Broken heart #2 came when my cute niece Ceciley came in the door of the '80s themed party in a darling, sparkly work-out outfit looking like a living doll and Estee was fascinated...she pointed to her own little lips (that luckily I had put hot pink lipstick on) and coyly said "I have lipstick on" I don't know if that story translates as heart breaking as it really was but it was a moment to say the least.

I feel like Dolly lately...

The day I have been dreading was here this morning when I woke up... SNOW.

As you can see there are 2 sad things about this photo. 1. I still have my Halloween up. and 2. While it might be a light dusting, the snow has begun.
I tried (unsuccessfully) to take a photo that showed the snow in my back yard. My big head got in the way. ( little peanut, This phony smile is ALL for you. It is me mustering up everything I have to put on a happy face and convince myself that Im really going to love this winter...all so that you can be happy and cozy in my tummy and not sad that its pure gloom for at least the next  4 months.)

Loosing faith in human kind...

Sister will have a fit that I am going public with the fact that while I work on treasures for your children all day I watch Judge Alex, Judge Christina, Judge Joe Brown and Judge Judy. She says that she would rather not watch T.V. at all than watch the "league of justice". You see I only have 2 channels because we don't have cable and I thought I had struck gold. Not sister. I have joyed (my cute aunt says that she "joyed" this or that instead of "enjoyed" it and I love it every time she says it) it. That is until I realized that these are real people ( I think I mentally couldn't except that for a while) and now Im just loosing faith in human kind.

Moving on, this is what I made during Judge Alex Ferrer today:

A little Christmas delight.
