Santa came to town!!

Our good friends invited us to their home for a personal visit from Santa. We were so excited! This would be Jetta's first encounter and Henry's second. F.Y.I. his first encounter did not go well, so we thought him being 3 and in a small setting things would be grand.....not so. Jetta did great. She loved Santa and laughed and had a "jolly" time with him, Henry on the other hand did not greet Santa with the same excitement. He started out crying, and keeping a far distance but as the evening went on he did better. He actually got close enough to take a candy cane out of Santa's bag. In the end they both got presents and it was as good as we had hoped for.

Where have I been?

I am sure you are all so sad that I have not been updating our lives for your viewing pleasure.........Ha Ha. Well, I have been doing this. What is this you ask. I have been "crafting" and selling and doing boutiques. I learned how to make baby blankets and frames from my talented family and then approached a friend to go into a little business, just for some extra holiday money, to make a bunch and sell them. As you can see on the table there is a lot more there than frames and blankets.....my oh so talented family sent me some hand made things that they sell for a real business ("jj potts" shroomyz, "chickadees" vintage girls dresses, "it's a girl thing" hand bags) to add to my little pretend business. So, my friend and I spent so much time and money to do this and it went.....well.......okay. When we actually got people to attend our boutiques they bought tons of stuff. It is very cute as you can see but I guess people are not into "boutique-ing." I had a great time doing it and really learned a lot. I don't know if I will continue but maybe if I think it might go better a second time around and if people show interest.

we are so ready for the snow!!!

We came home from church on sunday to lots and lots of snow. As you can imagine Henry was ready to go out and play/eat the snow. Jetta was ready to do what ever Henry was ready to do. Henry was so excited he took off his pants and put on his boots, that was good enough for his snow play!!!!
