Holidays are OVER YEAAAAA!

Christmas was fantastic.. and I'm glad to say that it is over!! We had a white Christmas for the first time since 1969. I have to say that it was quite beautiful. I missed my sales today, but I will get them tomorrow! We have hung out here today and I was on uber clean. TOO BAD my Christmas Tree is still up.. I really really wanted to take that down BUT since the snow we couldn't get to the storage room to get the boxes to load it up... TOMORROW !!!!!

videoThis is so cute.
Henry is sitting up now. He pulls himself up from a laying in my arms position to sitting up. Is he supposed to do that before he rolls over? He is getting over a cold that he has had. Silly germies got my little man! all the more to build his immune system! CHRISTMAS IS COMING THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS LIKE IN 3 DAYS!!! I told Ken we could open gifts and he says NO that we have to wait. Come on Christmas for 1 very good reason... I will get my living room somewhat back on the 26th. The tree is coming down, Christmas will be no more at the L household!!! Ugh.. For 2011, there are going to be quite a few changes! That will be a post for next week. I have to store them in my librainey!

Anybody get the magazine Real Simple? Im thinking of getting it next year. I really like it.. Along with Our State.. I like that one too. Ok well while little man is asleep I have to get baking. Ken took the wrong tupperware this morning so I have to make all those cookies again, OF course I went to the store this morning to find that they have NO MORE Bakers White chocolate. Nice huh.. these cookies will get a powdered sugar frosting instead of chocolate... Oh well.. Enjoy the pictures.. .

Its Christmas Week!!!

Our first family Christmas!! Henry has a cold. His little nose is so stuffy. Poor thing! I feel so bad for him.
His favorite place right now is laying on my chest. Bless his heart!
I hope he gets better before Santa comes. I want him to be well enough to see what Santa has brought him.

I hope each and every one of you readers out there have a Wonderful, and Happy Christmas!

We went to Grandover after the ceremony for brunch. I will say Ken and I will be going back there it was freaking awesome food! It was the best of both worlds!






Possible Christmas pictures... What do you think?

Alright.. I switched up the blog a bit..

Alright... so I made this blog appear before the other one so I hope that you read this one.. If not Ill put some pictures in so I know that you will..Take a peek at this.. Something I will NEVER do.. I'm eating crow on that one.. I have too much stuff to do so I did this.. He didn't choke he was fine. I just thought this was amusing because I said I would NEVER do that!

I got the Bjorn up and working. I wear it around the house so that I can do something other then sit there all day on the couch...This is a much better alternative to sitting on the couch. He wants to be held, I have things to do, I get the Bjorn...

Lets see.... I wanted to upload a video but it is not letting me.. Ill keep trying. Talk later.. Have fun Christmas shopping.. I am going to go this week and get it knocked out.

Day 28, 29 and 30


Day 30 A picture


Day 29 3 Wishes

Lets see if I can pick my librainey to see what I would really want if I had 3 wishes..
Well Last year New Years Eve, I wished that I was pregnant because I wanted a baby.. I got one. I wished for a man with no feet, I got one. SO, I think Im pretty good on my wishes. Im afraid to take another chance and wish again but ok here goes....

1. I wish...
2. I wish...
3. I wish....

Ok there they are.. I just wish to wish!

Day 28 Something that stresses me out...
I cannot stand this! NOW to my defense I dont have the cabinet space or the closet to have organization.. but if I did I would have everything in its place. I also get stressed over the little things. Ken tells me to loosen up all the time. I am not stressed over major things...

There you have it... My 30+ day Challenge. It has been fun...

Now back to blogging!

I have learned alot. But the one thing that I have learned in the last few months is that you NEVER change a diaper on a boy without having another one right there or you will get HOSED!

Day 23 Favorite Vacation

I went to a Chinese restaurant years ago. I eat some yummy food, talk with friends, then the time comes for the fortune cookies!!! Its my favorite part because it is like a little bit of a surprise inside that cookie! Well I picked mine and then opened them with friends It said :

"From the floors of the ocean, And the winds of the tide, A vacation awaits you far and wide"

I just love that saying!! It is on my fridge to this day. I have had it for many many years!! All vacations are my favorite!! You know I especially love the Beach!

Day 22 Favorite City

My favorite city would have to be New York of course!! I love it there! The crowded streets, the smell of the cars hustling and bustling, hot dogs cooking on the side of the street. People rushing past you because they are late for the train.. Grand Central. the Bakeries... oh I could go on and on... I also love Washington DC.

Tune in later to find out what stresses me out!

Day 17 30 day cahllenge

Day 17 something I am looking forward too...

I can honestly say that I have been so excited for a vacation that I look forward to it. it comes and then boom it is over. So I choose to look foward to things that I am going to do the day of. Yes I am excited about Christmas coming. I am excited about eating a big ole turkey on Thanksgiving with all my favorite fixins. I am excited about the baby baptism on the 5th. I get to see family that live out of state.

I dont want to look forward to much because we never know what can happen in an instant. Someone could not get great news about their health. A paycheck that you look forward to may not show up. I refuse to look forward to anything that is more then 48 hrs. I may be excited about it but I wont look forward to it for fear it would/could/may or may not happen.

All I can say is that I hope that you are excited about day 18 post.

Day 16. 30 Day Challenge

Today is Dream House day!!! day 16.

WELL to start out saying that we all will have dreams! I dream of alot of things. Are they just dreams or are they wants? Our wants sometimes turn into needs. Well, after looking for my dream house I found a WHOLE lotta things I want. Nothing that I need! Alright let me paint a picture for you if you are interested if you aren't, Lorraine, please skip to the pictures.

The picture in my head is this:

It would look something similar to this. This is a Craftsman style home. I love it! I think it screams Old Fashioned and well that I am!! I am an old soul as some would say.
The house would have large sitting areas, large spread out bedrooms, a staircase that goes up and then turns to the left then straightens back up. That is where the kiddies will be. The master bedroom will be on the main floor away from the house activities!

This here is 1 of hundreds of kitchens that I like. Of course if it were really mine I would NEED to have it customized just for moi!

Here is a view from my kitchen:



This is a side view:


Remember I would have it handicapped accessible for the hubby and big enough we would all have room and small enough we would be close! It would be just right!

Day 15 30 day challenge

Day 15. Its a bible verse.

Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it."
Ezra 10:4


I like this quote because it to me is saying Cowboy up, what you do will dictate your outcome. It is up to you and no one else what happens. BUT that God is there to support you and your decision. I like it.


Tomorrow is DREAM HOUSE DAY!!!! I may do it today if I have time because Im so excited!!!

Day 14

OH MY GOSH 30 days have never been so long...
Ok today is Day 14. Not consecutively but, for blog purposes it is day 14, A picture that I love!

I love all my pictures! I love the ones that got me an Honorable Mention, the one that won Third place. I love the one of our child as the doctor held him up in all his nastiness as he came out of my body, the pictures of the dogs, my parents, Blake, Ken and I on our first trip together. Pictures are a way to preserve the memory to keep it going. you may not remember something until you see a picture, or smell a familiar smell etc... It was hard to pick out 1 favorite picture, so I picked out many!

This is my most favorite picture. The one with the heartbeat is my second favorite. This is the very first picture of our little guy.

Our first picture together. I wanted one but I didnt want to take it for fear he would think it was stupid. SO I had a friend do it and I was like noooo you dont have to take a picture, and KEN said yeah take it I want one!! AWWWWWWWW

I loved my bunny cake! I think in all my 25 yrs of having Birthdays this cake is my favorite! You did a good job MOM!



I had to put this in because I would NEVER feed Hank in his bouncy... what if he choked?

Day 12 30 Day Challenge

Day 12 is what I belive in. Who says it best is none other then Don Williams.

"I don't believe in superstars,
Organic food and foreign cars."( although I do like organic foods. and without superstars we would have nothing to talk about! I drive a Nissan )

I don't believe the price of gold;
The certainty of growing old.
That right is right and left is wrong,
That north and south can't get along.
That east is east and west is west.
And being first is always best.

But I believe in love.
I believe in babies.
I believe in Mom and Dad.


Well, I don't believe that heaven waits,
For only those who congregate.
I like to think of God as love:
He's down below, He's up above.
He's watching people everywhere.
He knows who does and doesn't care.


But I believe in love.
I believe in music.
I believe in magic.


But I believe in love.
I believe in old folks.
I believe in children.


Stay tuned tomorrow for my Goals...

Day 11 30 Day Challenge

Day 11 is about my favorite TV shows..

I dont have any. I watch Food Network. I watch GMC. I watch CMT when they play music. And I listen to The HighWay on XM. I like to watch football. When my TV is on it is on a music channel mostly. Ever since they took my Men in Trees off the air I dont give a rats tail about getting hooked on a show, just so the network can take it off. NO way .... Men in Trees... That one was a good one!
