As soon as I wrote the title for this post I immediately thought of this:

Does that just not crack you up? Anyway, hello. 

It's beginning to look at lot like Christmas around our house. Am I the only one, or does it seem like December just completely snuck up on us? The last couple of months have just flown by. We haven't had anything particularly interesting going on but still, the day to day has kept us moving forward. On that note, I hate it when people ask me what I've been up to. I feel like I am a deer in the headlights. Well, should I tell them about the four hundredth load of laundry I did? Or that I woke up early to exercise and spend time with God before the day got away from me? Or perhaps I should share about the new recipe I tried? Ugh. It seems so small to say that I've just been being a mama and wife. Like maybe I should have some amazing side project going on?!? Anyone else feel that way? 

Elfie made his appearance this morning in our home. I had planned to write a sweet note from Santa but that didn't happen last night. Good thing Elfie travels to the North Pole each night to check in with Santa wink, wink. I am going to be better about taking pics and recording our December here. :) 

I'm working on Christmas presents right now. I've got a few ideas for the kids that I am excited about. Mostly learning based toys, because I know they will get lots of the fun stuff from their awesome extended family. They are so loved and spoiled. :) 

(Hi, Papa and Meme! Thanks for being my loyal blog readers. :) Look at the moon....)

Even though I haven't posted pics in a solid forever, I've been diligently pressing on with Project Life. I am one week behind and I still cannot believe I've kept up with this project for almost a whole year. Y'all that is humongous. I love it SO much but I need some help figuring out where to store the huge 12x12 albums so that we can see and look through them. Looks like I might be needing (ha) a deeper bookshelf. If you are wondering, I am totally going to do Project Life again next year. 

Lauren will start Kindergarten in 37 weeks. Yes, I'm counting. I heard about this app called Legacy. It lets you put in an age or date or whatever and it tracks how much time until then. It helps me be more consistent and purposeful because I know I only have 37 more weeks until our lives change. :) Yes, we are planning on sending her to public school. 

Easton is so big. I still see him as a baby, but he isn't. I hit a deer with my car this week and he was so worried (the kids weren't with me, thank goodness!) He kept asking if I broke the deer in half! Hahah!

Is that enough randomness for you today? Much love!!!!!

Also, I love my new blog design! It is SO me! Thank you, Miranda!!!!!!


  1. I'm in love with your blog design. It is soooo YOU! That's probably why I love it so much!
    AND your big project IS being the fabulous MOMMA that you are! And being a fabulous momma doesn't mean a perfect momma but a momma that loves and cares for her babies soooo much. And you give them the guidance and example of what a God loving, forgiven, life loving person they can grow up to be. XOXOXOXO

  2. hey.. nice blog.. and project Life will be a success for you as you are doing very well.. Good Luck :)
