Number 5?!

Yep. Well at least that's the way it looks.

If all goes well we should have an August baby. :) Cliff and I had talked about having 1 more but we weren't exactly completely ready for it. Ready or not... Heavenly Father has a way of doing things on his time.

I've been trying hard not to get stressed out about things. Baby won't need much that we can't provide for at least the first year.

In other news, I think Will has finally weaned. We started out with him just going to sleep without booboo, then he quit getting it when we got out of bed in the morning, and then we went all day without. Last night he slept completely through without waking to nurse. So when he woke this morning and wanted to nurse I told him no. Simple as that. He cried for a minute and then went back to sleep for another half an hour. I think it was just time to be done. It got to the point where he wouldn't just snuggle with out having booboo, and now he sits on my lap happily and watches TV with me. :)

Well I'm going to try to get some pictures of Christmas morning. The older two are going with their Grandparents for tonight and into tomorrow morning. Hopefully we can work it all out so that the kids can all open gifts together.

Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Crafting

Oh man am I tired. :P I did a bag for Miss Abby last night! I think she's going to love it.

I did yet another for Hannah with some cool Tinker Bell fabric with the fairies on it that are in the new Tinker Bell Movie.

I also did some fun Scrabble Tile Pendants. They aren't quite done because they need bails on them for necklace.

And last (for tonight anyway) but not least Christmas Eve PJ pants for Mikey.

Six Random things about me:

5. I'm also an internet junkie.
6. I love doing embroidery on my machine!

Now to tag six people in no specific order:

Falling Leaves are done!

I finished my falling leaves longies last weekend and just realized I had never posted them. Shame on me! Well here they are! All finished. :) And we LOVE them.

Inspired Birdy

So my wonderful and so very talented friend Erika did these incredible birds for her tree. I totally loved them as soon as I saw them and knew it would be the perfect thing to add to my bare (but getting more full!) Christmas tree! So naturally I HAD to make some. :) Mine aren't nearly as lovely as hers are because she had some rockin' fabrics... Sigh... I need to not be a cheapskate when it comes to fabric anymore. :P

Home Made Ornaments!

When we pulled out our Christmas tree to decorate I realized we lost a lot to toddler and infant hands last year so we needed more. Instead of running out and getting more that would eventually break I decided we would do what we could to actually make some this year.

Last night we made a few of these. They are called God's Eye.

Then tonight as a family project we made a few of these in an array of shapes and sizes.

Here's what they look like without the flash so you can get the light shine effect with the Christmas lights.

Mess maker...

Mess maker, mess maker, make me a mess.

Find some flour and have your fill. :P
