No Phone

Just an FYI... I lost my phone, so i apologize if I've missed anyones calls or texts... :/
Not that i receive an insane amount of calls or anything like that, but you never know. That ONE time someone might need to get a hold of me, is the time i don't have my phone!

A few things to look forward to

1. Thanksgiving!

Food, family and fun! Can't ask for much more :)

A few of the things that make the top of the list of things I'm thankful for (I figured I'd just say a few, or else the list would be forever long. I am so blessed.)

The Gospel
My sweet husband
My son
Family & friends
Good health
A home

Like I said, there're are so many more I could write, but I'll keep it at that!

2. Christmas decorating!

It's true. I'm a sucker for Christmas decorations. If i had all the money in the world, I'd put the north poll to shame.

Here are a few crafts I want to attempt this year:

I love these wreathes! I think the ornaments just bring so much sparkle and pizzaz to them.

I found this one here

and here.

I love this burlap wreath! I think it's so clever. I don't think I'll get around to making this one... but I thought it was super cute so I had to show it off.

I also love this advent calendar. We don't have one of our own so I've been looking for ideas for one to make!

I heart Christmas. I love the colorful bright lights, the music, the smells, the yummy goodies and just the mood and happy spirit that it brings :) I get so giddy at Christmas time haha.

And now to end on an even better note... pictures of the boys I love the most!

Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!

Peace out!

More pictures!

Today was Koston's 2 week check up. He's now 22 3/4 tall and weighs 10 lbs! He's grown about 1 1/2 inches and has gained 2 lbs since his last weigh in. Oh, you know he made Mom and Dad proud! We were all smiles after that :) He's still been such a good baby. He loves his naps, loves to eat, and LOVES his baths. It's so cute! He doesn't make a peep when i bathe him. I love this little boy so much! He has brought soooo much joy into our little home. :)

Haha. This cracked me up. Koston loves this sling. He can sleep any time, anywhere and in any position... if you couldn't tell.

Great alternative to dumbbells.

Kostons room

I haven't posted any pictures of his room yet, so I thought I'd just share a few of them... and of course I'll add some more pics of him! I just can't get enough pictures :)

I made the wall plaques and the letters. It was pretty simple, but fun.

And for one of my favorite parts... the bedding. My mom did such a great job! I love how it turned out. Thanks Mom!

We got this changing table from craigslist for super cheap! We tried to keep costs low so I figured this could just be a fun project. We sanded it, added some beadboard wall paper to the shelves and sides and then painted it white... we were pretty satisfied with it. Just don't look too close, there's quite a few imperfections! Thanks Brian for all the help! (He did most of it actually... the belly was kind of restricting!)

Ta da!

He's so tiny in his car seat.

Koston and Nixon. Already best friends :)

Nixon looks like a mini giant next to Koston. So cute!
