BIg happenings - small surprises

I have been away most this month because Christmas has became a TON of work.  I am clearly going to have to start earlier next January or something!  We had a fairly horrible Christmas (who can say that!!) The week prior Kyle was VERY sick with strep throat and then the week of Christmas our family had the stomach flu, which was lovely because Kyle and Justin were on their puky death beds Christmas Eve.

However some exciting things have happened.  Justin purchased a Nikon Camera for us and it will arrive on monday, and there is one other small surprise... but that will have to wait until I get my camera!  BUT your gonna die...... or at least I did!

Nursing covers at Ebay and free movie tickets

Hey ya'll just wanted to say that I have joined the Ebay family and am now selling Udderly Me there, as well as my own site.  Many thanks go to J Dawg -  really he is the one that did all the work {considering I am not so smart with technical things ie my blog posts that I just can't figure out how for them not to be wonky!}  Any ways please go check me out!

Free movie tickets have you heard????

General Mills is having a deal.  When  you buy two boxes of cereal you get a free movie ticket -  I know!!!!!
We were in Walmart yesterday and I saw the deal.  I purchased 2 (of course), entered in my code today and it really worked. I am now holding my very own free movie ticket for Cinema 8.  And I'm going to sure as heck go buy more because it's a really good deal and this time I am hoping to use coupons in addition!!!  
By the way have you seen Tangled?  Soooo cute, but I'm sure you have all seen it...

modest fashions

Really who doesn't love fashion?  I found this blog linked to vintage revivals {yes - I squandered my time today blog hopping}.  This clothed chick is amazing. I guess I like her because she reminds me of my super cute and stylish sister-in-law.  What is it with Asians...they are so fashionable!  So check this blog out.  It really makes me want to go into my closet and put outfits together and not wear my hubby's pj bottoms all day.  Just a thought!
 Seriously go look around her blog she is inspiring!

O Christmas Tree

Every year we get our {tree} from the exact same area.  It is a super hard to find location and we love it!  Well this year has been a year of tradition breaking.  Example - we didn't go to the pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins (we went to smith's instead), we didn't carve them (we ran out of time), we didn't shoot them at the shooting range on our way to get our tree (we were running out of daylight), and the spot where we normally get our tree was far to snowy and there was no way we were making it up the road.  So we backed down the super snowy road, then Justin and Kyle scaled the mountain side and found the perfect tree!  Justin is pro tree picker now.  He wouldn't dare come back with anything less than perfect.  Boy is he trained!
                                Sydney and Kade opted out for warmth, Christmas music and snacks!

                                  I don't even freak out any more that Justin saw's our tree in the living room {on the carpet} Married life has taught me that he measures once and cuts at least 5 times!  The last two always in the house!!!!!

                                                           I love big chunky decortations

                        My tree topper in this pic looks like the Grinch's hair. You know  - Jim Carey!

                              I signed up for a table decoration for our Relief Society Christmas dinner.  This is my super quick practice rendition.  I love how chargers at so much to a table setting.  I bought these from Walmart last year on clearance they are great to spray paint for every season ie black or orange for Halloween and then red again for Christmas.  You get the jest... I scaled the mountain side for the sticks and the white curly's are from Krumpets.  I wish I would have taken pics with the final setting at the actual event.  But really this is how I roll!  O well.
