Happy Stinkin Birthday!

Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to meeeeeeee, happy birthday to me!

Off to enjoy the day. I get to spend it mostly alone...which I think might just be okay. I'm not doing any house work, instead I"m spending all day sleeping, taking a hot bath, reading and being with ME. Then have to work, but we'll forget about that part for a minute...

Then Sunday is hubby's birthday and we'll celebrate both upright...but for now...it's MYDAY! yay!

Happy my birthday to you, have a great day!

Crazy Busy Holiday! *Lotsa pictures!*

Wow has it been as crazy for you guys as it has been over here? I mean really truly crazy! This time of year is my absolute favorite in the entire year, however that doesn't make it any less tiring or crazy! (How many times am I going to use the word crazy in this post? Let's count!)

So I haven't updated anything crafty this last little while, but I will update you on the goings on with some picutres of our fantastical crazy Thanksgiving and Christmas decorating extravaganza!

Grab some eggnog and enjoy!

No Joke...turkeys in our backyard Thanksgiving morning...
Not kidding here...lol
They smelled the fate of their brothers and came to help!
I forgot to take a picture before everyone started consuming the fare, but this is part of what we had on T-day...mmm I want some more
Sister and bro in law...can you see the beginning of her baby bump? Or maybe we'll call that her turkey bump?
Brother eating his pie...he takes pie very seriously...
And a lovely shot of yours truly...this is so flattering...*sigh* (Is wondering why I posted this to begin with...)

So then we all got to spend one whole day of rest from thanksgiving before going back to work...and then the sick invaded. I spent four days in bed wishing I could die...and had to call out of work three days in a row...it was lovely (still getting over the last of it...) After that we lysoled the house and moved on to Christmas decorating! My favorite kind!
Now I know it looks a little white trash, but that's just how I roll. I've had these villages since before I got married, and never had a place to set them up...until this year. So I broke them out in all their glory this year. Then yesterday my Mom gave met he sleigh...which we forgot that I owned in her shed until she busted out her own Christmas stuff and there it was. So now I have the village and the carriage driver...
I love how the carriage is as tall as the buildings...it makes me laugh...a lot
And the rest of my measly little bit of decorations. When I lived in our shoebox formerly referred to as an apartment, all these decorations filled it up and was awesome...now I"m in a normal person size house and barely have any...but I'll just go with it. Ignore the dusty TV and the scattered crap everywhere...this is as real as it gets, and I'm not into editing the pics today to make them look better....lol this is how I roll!

So there you have it. An official update. In between all this I've been able to sew one more little blanket for sister's new baby. She is due in July so I have some time, right?

How is your holiday season treating you? I'd love to hear from you! :-)

Taking a break

With the holidays firmly here I am writing to let you guys know that I'm pooped. Exhausted. Tuckered out.

I think I'll be taking a blogging break for a little while. Not forever, just mostly until after the holidays are done. I'll have an occasional post to share with you from time to time, but for the most part I'm just pooped.

So have a safe, wonderful fantastic holiday season, and remember what's really important is not the gifts but who you share it with.

I hope not to lose my fantastic readers, but if I do I completely understand. I'll be back after this season has calmed down somewhat. I love you guys!
