I'm The Mad Hatter!

I didn't realize I was so vocal about my hair loss, but apparently those close to me picked up on it, because today I received another stocking cap in the mail!

This one is from one of my good friends, Shawna.

When I opened the mail and read the note I cried. Yes, I'm a little emotional. Leave me alone!

It's pink, because everyone knows that I LOVE the color pink.

On the front of the cap it says, "Cancer Sucks" because we all know that Cancer Totally Sucks Ass!!

A Bomb

This is why we use cloth diapers most of the time:


Yes, her disposable diaper exploded in the middle of the night. We only use disposables at night time because I THOUGHT they would be more absorbant. I am currently rethinking this decision and looking for a good overnight cloth diaper.
Those little crystal type balls are Sodium Polyacrylate. This chemical can cause skin irritations and severe allergic reactions including vomiting, staph infections, and fever.

Luckily, it seemed to bother me more than her!

Happy Holidays

I would have liked to mail each and every one of you a Christmas card, but since I don't have your addresses, this will have to do.

Happy Holidays from our blog to yours.

Rub-A-Dub Dub...

...my two babies are in the tub.

Together!

Lately we've been giving the kids baths together, mainly to save time, but it saves money too.

They both throughly enjoy taking baths together. I just realized the other night, that I had NO pictures of this fun little adventure.


Cute aren't they?!


Ella's newest trick is raspberry blowing. If you look close you can see her lips pinched together. Daddy taught her that new trick! Thanks Dad!

Kyler likes to lay on his tummy in the bathtub. Good thing he's skinny or Ella wouldn't have any room!


She is so happy to be in the tub, that she doesn't even care that the water is getting cold!





Time to get out.
Cheesy little munchkins!

Less Hair=New Hat

As you can see in the picture below, my hair is thinning. Like really thinning. I have always had thick hair, so losing my hair has been a little hard on me.

Imagine my surprise when I got the mail yesterday and this wonderful hat was waiting for me! My 2nd cousin, Debbie, reads my blog and she could tell that the hair loss bothered me so she knitted (or possibly crocheted!) this awesome stocking cap for me.

The picture below isn't the best, so just look at the hat, not at me! I've never been a huge hat wearer, but I absolutely LOVE this one.

Thank you so much Debbie!

My Gingerbread Man

I have always wanted to make a Gingerbread House with Kyler, but felt he was just to young.

This year I felt he was old enough to tackle the task of a Gingerbread House. I am so glad that I did this with him. He LOVED it. He had so much fun decorating and eating the house. The joy on his face was priceless!


Posing with his Gingerbread House box.

Look at all these pieces Mom!

I love decorating my house!

The finished product! Look at that smile on his face! He was so proud of himself.
