I’m  loving  Zumba, it’s a good workout and it’s FUN just wish I was not sick and could actually go this week.
I’m loving that we are trying to make handmade Christmas presents this year, it will be interesting.

I’m loving my boots, I got them from pay less. Super Cute! Not loving that I got them a few days to early because now they are on sale and I have a coupon.

I’m loving pinterest as always. I found the presents I’m making on there which i cannot show until after I make them and also found a cute tutorial on a book holder I want to try and make for Aiden.

I’m loving that it’s finally cold out and that it might actually stay cold. The heat this summer was crazy. So I'm looking forward to the cold.
I’m loving that we finally put our Christmas tree up, I’m a sucker for the holidays. I just love the spirit of Christmas. My hubby even helped, it was awesome!
I’m loving the dual portable DVD player we got for the car on black Friday. Aiden is going to love being able to watch the Bubble Gubbies on the road.
I'm Loving that I can at least sit up and write my blog today, and hope to catch up on some reading every ones post. Being sick really sucks.
I'm loving that one of my besties will be here a few days in January. Miss the Farringtons
I'm loving that we were home for the wreath ceremony at my dads cemetery.

As always I'm Loving my boys. What are you loving?

The fabulous holiday blog challenge day 2

Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge
Hello everyone,
Linking up today with Amber and Neely.
Day {TWO} - Fave holiday tradition, new or old.
Growing up...
The Christmas tree and Christmas lights went up the day after Thanksgiving.
On December 6th, for Nikolaustag, we put out one shoe and hours later we would see if we had a show full of candy or coal. My Mom was born and raised in Germany so most of our traditions were from our German side.
Growing up we always opened all out gifts Christmas eve around 8:00 pm. For dinner we would have potato salad and hot dogs, very simple. Sometimes my dad would dress up as Santa. Then on Christmas Day we cook up a huge dinner.
On New years eve we always make sauerkraut and pork ribs. They cook all day long in a crock pot. This is one of my favorites meals we have every year.
My husband grew up opening gifts in the morning so we are going with that for our son.
This year we were visiting family for Thanksgiving so we put our Christmas tree up a few days later, I loves that Aiden helped this year. Last year he had just learned how to sit up, so he just did a lot of watching.
Aiden helping Daddy set the tree up.

I love him.

Day After Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a awesome Thanksgiving. We had to awesome food and loved hanging out with my family. My husband cooked the Turkey and us girls (me and my sisters) did the rest.

While all the yummy food was cooking, we went out and played some football.... Danny and I won!!!

It's a little warn here in Texas!!

Fun Turkey cookies that we did for the kiddos,we were suppose to to candy corn but could not find any. Jelly beans worked. They were cute!

  Dinner is ready!!

Aiden decided to nap instead of eating. This is not baby boy LOVES food.

  My family has had this tradition for as long as I can remember, where we read the verse on this book every year. This year my niece Isabell read it and she did an awesome job.

After the food had settled, we took the kids to the park and I took some pictures of my sister Nina. Class of 2012. Proud of her.



Aiden was in bed by 9:00 and Nina babysat him so Danny and I could go out. Went to walmart and 10:20... Parking lot FULL. I love a good deal but Danny and I are not aggressive. We are not CRAZY, however watching the people react to some things is truly entertaining. We did get what we went for though.. A dual portable DVD player for Aiden for $59.00. It will help us out on our trip to GA for Christmas.

Going to be taking some more family pictures today, hang out and enjoy my family. Then back home on Sunday.

Have a great weekend!!

Handmade Ornament Swap Preview & How Pinteresting Wednesdays



I joined two awesome ladies for a Christmas ornament swap, this is going to be my first swap of any kind so I am excited. I also LOVE doing crafty things!!

I was going to go to the store and find some neat crafty things to help make some ornaments, but instead I remember I had clear Christmas balls from last year, so I just found things around the house to use. I have tons of crafty stuff. I made three different ones and have decided to send my swap partner two.

Just went through pinterest to get some ideas and of course found some super cute ones.

Here's what I came up with.....

I really hope she likes them. Nothing more special then handmade things. Can't wait to get this is the mail and sent.

What do you think?
Are you making any handmade things for Christmas this year?


Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!



                                                  I Love all the colors in this outfit.

I made something like this a few years ago and going to try it this way this year, and have my nieces help. Excited to be home for Thanksgiving.
