Phew, the end of years insight.

So as I posted in my last blog I have been making jewelery. I must have made almost everyone I know something by now, and did I take any photos-NO!

Don't worry I will not be making that mistake again and all I can say is I will only get better!

So we survived Christmas!!! Really it wasn't so hard, since both the kids are little. Matthew only cared about toys he already had and Emma, well she just slept thru the whole thing.

My father in law plays Santa and decided to come with my mother in law up from So Cal again this year and played Santa for all the kids at the daycare. All the kids were beyond excited to see Santa. It was alot of fun!

My sweet little girl!

My little boy-typical boy!
Of course the long weekend like a wurlwind of going places, cooking, cleaning, and opening gifts.

Something else I blogged about before was my exploit into cooking. I have stubbled onto the greatest "insperational" website and it's chalked full of awesome, tasty reciepes. SO, I have been making, creamy sour cream enchiladas, stuffed mushrooms, dipping sauces, and anything I can get my hands on! It's been alot of fun, and um... DELISH!

Hoping that the New Year brings nothing but great things for us and everyone!!!

What do you mean it's almost Christmas...


I can't believe it's already almost X-mas. It's so insane to me how the time flies. I have so many things going on right now, mostly importantly finding a new job.

I need to branch out. I would prefer to work from home, but who wouldn't. I have a few things I am working on that will hopefully get me where I want to go in the future.
Both the kids are in daycare now, and they are both doing so good. Matthew is walking and damn near running now. Emma is trying to sit up and laughing all the time.

I can't believe how fast them time flies when you have kids. Our pre-child life was so boring.. always the same thing never moving forward. Our post-child life-IS CRAZY. Sometimes we don't get a second to ourselves. Every spare second has to be planned and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love being a mom and I love my babies.
I have been getting back into crafting. Making jewelery. I made a beautiful red bracelet for myself they other day with some saved beads from a broken bracelet.

My new and imporved red bracelet made by yours truely!

I also made a bunch of crafts at X-mas with the kids, Hand turkeys and a Turkey for our door.
