Picture Monday - Christmas Blast from the past

I got my Christmas Tree up this weekend. My husband even got the lights on the house! It is awesome. The kids helped me with the tree. Now I just need to get a timer, so I don't have to unplug and plug it in everyday. With that in mind I dug up this old picture. It is from 1988. I can tell because the babies in the picture are Andrew and Colt. I am the dork in the yellow sweater on the far right, with the perm.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a great holiday! I haven't posted this week because we have been busy and I just haven't had anything super interesting to post about. Our turkey day was nice. My husbands family came down. None of them had been here before. He got to shoot guns with his brothers and his mom did like 5 loads of laundry for me. Wow. It was nice. The nephews got to come too and the kids had a blast! We are hoping to get together for Christmas too.

If you didn't feel like this next picture, then you didn't eat enough food for Thanksgiving.

Weird looking things.

I have two pictures of weird looking things from around my house this morning. First is my son. I *thought* he was going potty. Instead he was doing this.

He claims that he wanted to look like an Indian. He covered his whole face with my brown eyeshadow. Good grief. :)

Next up is this fellow. We got in our local Organic food box. It is called a Blue Hubbard Squash. It is impossible to cut open with a knife. So, I did what anyone would do I threw it on my deck. Then I took out the guts, wrapped it in foil and baked it for one hour. It tastes kind of like pumpkin so I am making pumpkin soup with it. MMM!

Picture Monday - 4 years ago.

4 years ago we had family pictures taken in November. So i thought for my Picture Monday I would post a couple of those. It is hilarious to me to look back and see my Fat Toad! That was Dominic's nickname. You can see why in the picture. Those cute cheeks and no neck! :)

Here is our family picture. We recently just had some new family pictures taken. I will try to get them posted soon. Until then enjoy this one from 4 years ago.

I love you Daddy!

I will give you a kiss.
I love you so much, I will bite you. Right on the nose! OUCH! LOL!

Slideshow quilt.

I have been working on this quilt for about a year. I had the top finished for a long time. I finally did the quilting and binding and it is finished! I am planning to give it as a Christmas gift. My dads family does a swap. So this is the girl gift from me.

I used Michael Miller fabrics and some matching solids on the front. Some pink camo for the binding and Blizzard Fleece for the backing. It also has batting, so with the fleece it is thick and warm! I love it. Almost don't want to give it away. I hope to have another one done in a week or so.

Water test!

We got our results back from our water test. They are stellar. We have soft water, all the minerals, metals and everything came back amazingly good. Which in theory it should because its just rain water, stored in a cement well. I can't wait to start using it!

In other household news, last night my freezer was off. Luckily I noticed it before bed. I heard a chunk of ice fall inside the freezer and it was defrosting! GAHH!! I called DH to help me figure out the problem. Someone had turned the dial to OFF! That someone I am positive is about 4 years old, short, talks kind of funny. If you see the guy let me know I am not happy with him. :) I bought a lock for it, but it won't stay on.

Luca is doing his baby signs. He will sign "more" when he wants more food or wants to nurse. He also is trying to say Diaper. It comes out like Dye-da. He also is saying Na Na for nursing. I love it. He is pretty happy that he can start expressing himself.
