You haven't experienced coolness till now!

So at my work I found these glasses that you put on that transform all points of light into Christmas shapes. They are so cool! We picked out our favorite two. I put the glasses on my camera to give you an idea of how awesome they are.

My favorite was the drive home (I wasn't driving) when car's headlights turned into two giant snowmen who looked like they were running up the road at me each time a car passed. I laughed my guts out.

On another note, my husband is an addict. I tell him he's had enough and its time to take a shower now. After a couple naggings, he reluctantly goes upstairs to get things done. I go up a couple minutes later to use the potty and see that his bathroom is empty but the light is on in the study. Scroll down to see what I find there.





He's at it again!!!

Parable of the Fish and the Loaves

I stayed up to finish Brady's socks.

A miracle happened. Remember when Jesus was out teaching the multitude and fed them with the loaves of bread? Well I was convinced that I was going to run out of yarn and have to finish the socks with the leftover green yarn from last year's Christmas mittens. The ball had gotten so small. But what happened was this... it just kept giving. I swear it stayed the same size for like 3 inches of sock. And I even have some to spare!

Happy Thanksgiving!

My Diaper Cake

While I was "blog stalking" I found the cutest idea, making a cake out of diapers. With my friend Whitney having a baby soon and all I had the perfect opportunity to try this out. I got on YouTube and watched some videos and came up with my own way to make one. So here it is! I used diapers, an apple cider bottle, tons of rubber bands, ribbon and the bear. It was super fun to make and I think that it turned out pretty cute.
