Family, Shopping and DIY Time

Today was my first serious Black Friday shopping day, it was way more fun than I thought it could be!
And saving hundreds of dollars, being back home by noon in time for Thanksgiving left overs for lunch and a nap... amazing!

I have just about all my shopping completed (major yay) and all the decorations up, tree and all.

We had a relaxing Thanksgiving with family, I think my family is one of the few that never has any drama when we get together, pure chill vibes.
This week I have been getting so many packages at the door for the baby, it gets more and more exciting everyday. =)
I am (as usual) working on DIY?craft projects, I am kinda nervous about my newest.
I am making a headboard.
Yeh, crazy, I know.
But Joanns had a super sale today, I have been waiting for black Friday to get my almost 80% off on the materials I need. 
The women in the store are so sweet and seasoned at this stuff and gave me some advice.
As soon as my handy man (John) is not too busy working I will bat my big…


Going through old pictures recently and donating all the kids clothes has taken me on a trip down memory lane recently.

Last year I made John a calendar and this is from the November page, I can't believe I looked like this last Thanksgiving!
This Thanksgiving I will be closer to these photos of me when I was pregnant with Kaiden and Ethan.

The human body amazes me at the things it can do!

Going through the boys baby clothes was so hard.
I almost didn't want to part with them, but I knew it was time and since we are having a girl and I only want 3 kids (I think), it was time.

I am looking forward so much to welcoming a new baby into our family.

Here's when Kaiden and Ethan were new.

I still see them both as little babies.  I love them so much!
I tell John all the time that he won't have to do anything.
I do all the night time feedings and changes, I think he likes the idea of that! lol!
I love being a mother and doing everything I can for my babies. Sleep? I can sleep w…

Cooking, Eating, and it Shows!

As promised I have new belly pics! =)

Over the weekend we got our Christmas photos done (yay!).
John and the boys are always so great to cooperate with me so well.

As always I spend my time cooking, and then of course eating, and as you can se from the pics it shows! lol

Here's some of last weeks dishes:

Curry Shrimp Over White Rice  Surprised them with Home-made Sugar Cookies! Can you tell which is for John and Which for the boys?

I LOVE cooking for my family, I know how much they enjoy getting a healthy, tasty home-cooked meal daily.
They deserve it after a day of school and work, it's the least I can do.
I try to be as healthy as p…

November Already?

I cannot believe it is November already!!
Christmas really stresses me out, it is so important to me that I get thoughtful gifts for the ones I love.
I have bought my first gift already, so that feels good, and I have a brief list of ideas already, so that feels good as well.
I need a shopping partner, everyone else works. =(

The boys had a great Halloween, there is so much candy in the house, I am pretty good at staying away from it. (Pat on back).

You can barely see my baby bump, at some point I will take a proper picture where it actually shows a little more.
Maybe you can see it more in this picture... It's definitely smaller than expected, but the doctor says she is the exact size she should be.
  Nothing new and exciting to report really, I just wanted to get the boys Halloween pics up for those of you that have been asking for them. And the tummy pics for those of you who have been asking for those. =)
