Did your Hot Hubby get the kids up and make chocolate chip waffles while you slept in till 8am?
Did your little family pile up in mommy and daddy’s bed to snuggle and read books?
Did you cozy up on the couch with a glass of tea and didn’t care that your house looked like this?
Did you show your son some awesome puddles
to jump in and your neighbor said “They always get dirty when they are dressed up” and then she looked shocked
when you told her he jumped
in on your suggestion
Did you take the token pictures around the table
of your dinner guests?
Did your daughter Houdini herself out of her high chair
to climb on the dinner table?
Did you sit on (and crush)
a little stacking doll that you Grandmother had received
as a gift from missionaries in Poland?
Did Auntie Sarah take over and broke a sweat
while playing with your kiddos?
Did you play play play?
Did you do a silly Indian craft? (found it here)
Did your daughter walk more than she ever has before? (Probably because GG
was secretly giving her whip cream
Our Thanksgiving read…
A man in Jacksonville calls his son in San Diego two days before Thanksgiving and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing. Forty-five years of misery is enough.”
“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams.
“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Denver and tell her.”
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like h*$@ they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.” She calls Jacksonville immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way.”
Hot Hubby and I happen to have a Godson.
His name is Isaac.
He is incredibly cute!
See for yourself ——->>>
And he LOVES wearing Lids.
I’m sure you have heard me mention Blessed Nest a few times! Blessed Nest did our first blog review and giveaway. Not only do the Blessed Nest Gals rock but their blog is awesome AND they offer some amazing products!! Can you tell I think they’re great?!?!
The Nesting Pillow
is so much more than just a nursing pillow! You can u
se this thing for years and it’s durable “made to last” quality will keep it fresh through pregnancy, nursing, co-sleeping, tummy time and as your growing child’s (or your) pillow
!! It is filled with buckwheat hulls which make it possible to move around like a bean bag and find the perfect position. It will conform to you and hold the position
The fabric is gorgeous (no lame puppies or fire engines) and it is all 100% organic, (except for some of the banding, which is 100% cotton) allowing air to circulate and keep everyone cool. The slip cover is removable so you can keep it sparkling clean
after spit-up and poop explosions! Read about a gazillion
good comments here.
They also sell The Nest Egg (how cute is that name!?!) which can compliment the nesting pillow or be used on it’s own. Toddlers love it for sleeping, sitting or to make car rides cozier. It’s small and lightweight enough to take along for support and comfort on the go!
All Blessed Nest products are lovingly handmade in America, and whenever possible they use materials from sustainable, organic and/or domestic mills.
<—This my friend Donna over at Blessed Nest with her two beautiful daughters. Donna and her girls are official “Lid Lovers.” Check out Eli’s Lids (along with some other great gifts) on their Christmas Gift Guide
. And really, you should subscribe
to their blog… they are always giving great tips and having fun giveaways!!!
me – “Ok Eli, Mommy is going to make new curtains for the living room! Do you want to help me pick out the fabric?”
me – “Come on, PLEASE… Which one do you like better?
…or this one?”—–>
eli – “OK Mama…. mmmm…. This one!”
me – “Really?!?!?!????”
So I start to think…
~I guess I can’t ask my son for his decorating opinion (should that have been obvious because he is only 2?)…
~I know I can’t ask Hot Hubby or our house would be brown and chrome…
~My mom (Suzie Says
) is great, but her decorating… no comment…
Good thing I got My Girl!!!!
My beautiful daughter and my future partner in crime & shopping sprees!
me – “Cora, we are having our first Mommy & Me curtain search at my favorite fabric store!!”
Cora – “Pppppppbbbbbb
mean she likes the idea)
I heart you more and more every day!
You’ll never think of the phrase “Sleep Like a Baby” the same…
