If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to organize or purge, check out my friend Terry’s blog here.  She has a schedule in place to organize your house in 31 days.  She started organizing her home on January 1st and gives you pics and ideas to follow.  Good stuff!

Have a great day!

Yep, my best side.

You thought my kids took that shot – didn’t you.  Nope.  Hubby did.

I was working on the new trim for my CHA booth.  I asked him to take some pics.  I told him to get my good side.

Speaking of CHA booth.

Check out my new sign!

Gotta give a huge shout-out to Bridgette…she painted the sign.  It looks great! 

Getting anxious for the show.  Will have more pics soon!


Happy Birthday Hubby! January 12, 2010

We enjoyed ice cream cake (seems to be a tradition now) last night.  Hubby is traveling today. 

Speaking of birthdays…within this week our families have several to celebrate!  Happy Birthdy to Sher, Elaina, Lucas, Leann, Aunt Rae and me! 

Have a great week!

Yep, that’s right.

Was that last post on Christmas? 


I have my log-in in my “favorites” to the left of my inbox. 

I keep avoiding the section with “Soup Bowl – Create New Post”.

If I don’t look over there, it might go away. 🙂

As all of you know it’s crrrazy busy right now with CHA stuff.

Have you seen all the sneak peeks over at the Bean Talk blog?  Good stuff.

Promises to be a better blogger after the show.  I even started another blog since this one is driving me crazy (blurry photos and all).

Can you see that chunk of blue missing from the top right box?  I can. Ugh.

Have a good one.

Be back soon!

Fun Bits for the Week of December 14th…


Has it really been a month since I posted my last Fun Bits?  Oh my…  Let’s see if I can remember how to do this. 😉

  • Brooke has started doing cookie monster impressions which I must say are quite amusing.  Her mum, mum, mum, mum, mum coooookie monster low tone is right on!
  • Kami was a cute little angel in her pre-school Christmas show.  For some reason it was more fun to play with her halo, wave to mom, turn around in her chair,  wave to dad, and do a little dance with her legs than it was to sing.  In between songs she could be heard saying  loudly “Hi Brooke” to a little girl sitting on my lap. 
  • The girls are very excited for Santa to come!  Our elves however have had to go back to the north pole for a couple of days.  The girls have been fighting over who finds the elves in the morning and the big elf is about to lose his legs.  Grandma might be sewing some elf legs before too long. 😉
  • Leah lost her 2nd tooth.  The tooth fairy visited with a couple bucks and a mini penguin (which seems to have gone missing already).  The penguin is one of those Asian erasers that are popular right now.  Good thing the tooth fairy is so cool and stays up with the trends. 😉
  • Brooke still loves the crayons!  Her latest masterpiece was on one of the windows in the playroom.
  • Kami insists on putting “lips chapped” on her lips several times a day.
  • Hubby and I were talking about Christmas tonight and I’m so thankful I started my shopping prior to Thanksgiving.  We’re both not sure where October, November and December went!!!!  2010 here we come!
  • We hosted a gingerbread house party this past weekend which was quite fun!  If you’ve never made a gb house before, I would recommend it!  We had some real talent in the group.  Take a look…

Have a great holiday week!!!
