Happy Turkey Day!! Gobble gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! I have lot's to be thankful for!

Just a few things off the top of my head:

My parent's for sure, for allowing me and my sometimes crazy child to still live at home and not have to find a place to live on our own and pay bills and work all day and not have time to spend at my own place, yeah that was probably too much info. I really am very thankful for my parents!

I'm thankful for my wonderful daughter whom I love so much and who has made me who I am today! I try to be the best mom I can be!

I'm thankful for good friends who will just listen if I need someone to listen to me or just go hang out with just cause. Someone that I can look up to, everyone needs someone to look up to, even adults!

For my brothers who are all very different but very much alike! I hope to always have a good relationship with them as we all grow older! And I hope that they will always stand up for me and have my back, cause I would do the same for them!

For my job at the moment, I really do enjoy going to work and cutting up with the people there. I may not make a whole lot of money, but I don't mind getting up in the morning to go.

Well that's all I'm going to put. I sure hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving and had lot's of yummy food!

Whooo hooo!

I did it, I hemmed my own jeans myself! Well I did have help from my nanny, she showed me how to do it, but I pinned them and sewed them myself. I think I did a pretty good job, I'm not a big fan of hemming my jeans but when your not over 5'6 you kinda have to! So proud of myself!

Since my brother has moved back in, Audrey just loooooves spending time with him! He just plays and has fun with her and she enjoys every second! Like tonight he was listening to music on the computer and she just sat next to him and he started being goofy and playing around with her! And now they are watching one of his movies, James and the Giant Peach, together on the chaise! I hope that they always have this special relationship!

A very cute owl.

The owl is in the top right corner, it's not a very good pic, but I couldn't remember where I saw the other picture! There all very cute and I wouldn't mind trying to make different shapes.

Here is the pattern and directions on how to make the owl.

I can't wait to make one of these and maybe some others too! I think Audrey could even make one! What a fun project to do together! Oh yeah, I saw this on Anna Maria Horners blog.

Nothing much here!

Well I've not posted anything in a while! Just a few things happening, my younger brother Brandon has moved back home so I had to give up my craft space for a little while:( boo hoo. Yeah I'm a little sad about it, but I'll get over it. I am going to get to set up my craft stuff in my bedroom after we finish my bathroom which is connected to my bedroom! So hopefully that will happen soon! ANYWAY..... I am pretty much done shopping for Audrey's Christmas presents!!! I have NEVER been done so early, I'm usually shopping up to Christmas eve! So I am very stoked about being done so early!! Ummmm the weather outside is sooo chilly, but I love it! I have forgotten how cold it gets this time of year, it sure does feel like Christmas!! I sure do love the holiday season. Oh yeah, I'm going to be an aunt again!!! Brian and Samantha are having another baby!! I can't wait to have another baby in the family, maybe this one will be a boy, for Eric, he really wants a nephew!

Election upset!!

Well I've had a day to think about the outcome of the election AND I'm VERY upset with how it ended!! I truly believed that McCain was going to win, I just knew there were lot's of christians praying for this election and that they were going to vote McCain! I did hear that there was a very high percentage of christians who voted for Obama, that's so disappointing!! I sure hope all the people who voted for this man get the changes they expect and it would be nice if he did make some good changes, but I just don't think he will! Sorry for all this, I just needed to vent a little bit.

On another note:
I am wanting to get creative and make some stuff for the holidays! I don't know what I want to make I just want to make something! Also I kinda would like to make some homemade gifts to give too! Alright Carla when are we getting together to make some fun crafts?!
