I made Mexican food the other night and my camera was in the Kitchen, so I took a picture inside the cheese grater. Ron gave us a big ol' box of Christmas cookies and they were pretty and yummy.

I took a few cute pictures of Molly and was bored yesterday, so I was playing on Photoshop. Here's what happened:

Weekly Theme: Water

Okay here's a picture I took last night. I know it's similar to Janae's, (not as fancy) but I kinda like it:

And here are two from this Summer. The first is the aftereffects of a sprinkler, the second is just cute.

Christmas Cards

I know it's only December 8th, but I'm a little irritated that we've only gotten one Christmas card so far. All of mine have been sent (except for those people that I don't have addresses for). I look forward to getting the mail everyday, because there's not much else going on around here, but especially since December 1st because I have started expecting Christmas cards and so far I've been totally disappointed. Another reason I look forward to getting them is because I have a spreadsheet of who I sent them to and who I've recieved them from. I like checking names off my list. If some one sends me a card and I didn't send them one for some reason, i will then add their name to the list and send out a card. It's a very simple system but I'm bummed that i haven't had a reason to open up my Christmas card spreadsheet.
**for those of you that don't usually send Christmas cards, I ain't mad atcha; but for those of you that do, you better get on the ball!

Crappy sunlight pictures

I took this to see the sunlight come through the butterfly. Not the best picture, but a good idea. This one was meant to show the shadows of the tree branches. Also, not the best picture, but I didn't want to go outside to take a better picture.

7 things about me because I've been "tagged"

1. I love "The Nutcracker." (The ballet, get your head out of the gutter Emily). Ovation TV has a "Nutcracker Grudge Match" going on right now and I'm recording all 7 versions of it so I can watch it whenever I want.
2. I hate staying up late and waking up late. If I'm awake past 1:00am, or still asleep past 9:00am I kinda freak out.
3. Large pieces of broken glass give me the willies.
4. At least once a week I think about what would happen if a burgler/killer broke in while Scott was gone and we were all sleeping. I'm constantly trying to figure out how to jump out of a bedroom window with both girls in my arms without breaking any bones.
5. I will do everything in my power to figure out what I'm getting for Christmas before Christmas morning. I've unwrapped at least one of my presents every year since I was about 10.
6. I have no desire to travel. In fact, going to a foreign country where they don't speak English freaks me out; I assume I will be thrown into prison never to be released (thank you "Brokedown Palace").
7. I feel retarded everytime I have to say "I love you" to someone other than Scott or the girls. I do love a lot of people (many of you reading this), but its a rare occasion that I am willing to say it to them (even my mom). Don't judge me!

Since almost everyone I know that will read this has already been "tagged," the only ones I have left to tag are Emily and Liz. I think this means that you have to post seven things about yourself and "tag" seven other people to do the same (if you want to, I'm really not going to hold you to it)


I just joined Facebook yesterday. I think I hate it. I was on Myspace for a while and finally deleted my profile because it was getting pointless and rediculous. I think I feel the same about Facebook. I've already had two or three people that I'm not really friends with make me their friends on it. I don't really want to be updated everytime they comment on someone else's picture or whatever. I joined it to snoop on people that I haven't kept in contact with from highschool, but there's no information on there and you have to be their friend to even get that little bit of info. I'll give it a few days or a week and then probably delete that profile too. If there is a good reason to stay on Facebook, please let me know what it is.

More Projects!!

So, I think it was last year, shortly before Christmas that I started making a quilt so that we could have a festive blanket in the living room around Christmas. I made the quilt top, no problem. But then I had to actually quilt it and I got bored with it and abandoned the project. Well, about a year later I have finally finished it and here it is!
As you may recall from an earlier post, I had extra fabric so I mad a wreath:
I had some squares that I made while making the quilt that I didn't use for the quilt so I decided to make this ornament yesterday. I even stuffed it with unusable fabric scraps (How green am I?!). Look Out, Christmas!
