What goes around comes around

Recently my sister blogged about how her 1 year old daughter had chewed up a library book and then took a bath with another one, for more click here.
I laughed so hard when she was telling me the story but somehow as I sit here looking at yet another set of books that are late to be returned and the fees stacking up I'm not thinking it's so funny. My highest fee yet has been $15 but then the next time I paid $12 and now this time it's $12 again. I think I might be better off to go buy books instead of checking them out for "free." Every time we leave the library my oldest son says, "I can't believe we can just take these books for free, completely free can you even believe that?" In my head I think really free? I'm pretty sure I need to add a category for library fines to my budget or maybe I should call it a membership fee that sounds a little better. You think my husband would go for a $30 membership fee to the library each month?
So there you go Abb now you can laugh your head off at me and my library fiasco.

On to the main course

So this morning I asked Kaden if he was ready for me to get him some cereal. (remember he's 2) and he replied with, "Yep I'm ready, I'm all done eating my boogers." So there you have it apparently if it takes me that long in the morning to get him some cereal he's gonna find something himself, boogers.

Where have I been?

Seriously where have I been for so long? December 8th, is that really the last time I posted on this blog? Can't be.

I had a great holiday, spent a week at my parents cabin in the snowy mountains. Which speaking of mountains. I was driving with my 4 year old son, Tyce, the other day. We were on our way to my sisters house to go tie quilts for the kids for Christmas. He looked out the window and could see the mountains and made some comment about them. I replied with, "Your cousin Dylan lives just over those mountains." He turns to me and says, "He lives in the smoky mountains (there was fog on the top of the mountains)." I said, "Yep just over the smoky mountain." He then says, "That would be a great place to pray mom."
My reply, "Oh really."
Tyce, "Ya you could climb the smoky mountain and pray to the Lord."
Me, "What would you pray about?"
Tyce, "Anything. Like if Dylan lost a toy he could climb up the mountain and pray to the Lord to find it."
He is so much fun and I have to say this is one of my favorite conversations I've had with him in the last month. What child says, you could climb a mountain and go pray to the Lord? He's so cute!
I also spent like 2 full weeks making Christmas cards. When I decided to make my own Christmas cards I didn't think it would take that long but it ended up taking me nearly 2 weeks off and on to finish them all. Take a look, I actually think they turned out super cute.

The downfall . . . . . . well they have buttons on the front so apparently when they go through the machine at the post office the buttons end up shredding the envelope. So some people got them with a shredded envelope and my sister who lives about 45 min. away actually got her Christmas card with 20 cents postage due, it was shredded and in a clear plastic post office envelope. So there you go that's a great sign that the economy is bad you get a Christmas card with postage due! :D If I didn't laugh my head off when she called to tell me what happened I might have been embarrassed. Luckily everyone else I talked to did not have to pay postage for our cards. Cute none the less!
I also went to a favorites party. This is one of the things I look forward to every January. My friend has about 12 of us over and we all bring a list of our top 10 things from the past year, we bring something to give everyone, we bring our favorite dish to share and a recipe. It's great and we end up with so many awesome ideas to try. Love it, love it!
Anyway, just thought I'd let you all know (abb that's you) I'm back, but not for long because Thursday I leave to California for a couple days. Yeah sunshine here I come!
