online shopping

It's too cold to go out Christmas shopping. So I have been doing some shopping online. Roman has been helping at the other computer. Bed head and wearing too small rain boots are apparently prerequisites to shopping online.

Anyone in a crafty mood with Christmas around the corner? I have been working a lot and not really crafting - but during down time at work I have found lots of things to craft! Might make some cute Christmas presents.

Thought these covered button thumb tacks were cute

And these fabric covered magnets

Thought these pillows would be cute in kids rooms - if I had more time, maybe one day.

And this site has lots of cool fabric. Scroll to the bottom and click on the blog link (in green, just above the contact info) They have a theme for every day in November of idea you can make for gifts. Lots are stupid, but some are really cute. Nov. 6 is baby blankets and has a cute stroller quilt. Nov 9 is fabric ornaments. Nov 11, reading and writing, cute crayon role that would be good for church. You get the idea. For some reason I thought this felt cupcake was really cute (whimsy, Nov 8)
Just one more - this one's for you Steph. Nov 14, dress the kids. Check out the girls clothes. Love the smoket and this - making a girls dress from a button shirt.

Paige wanted a bag for church, for scriptures and stuff. So in stead of my mom buying one I am making here a few different ones. You have to be able to coordinate with what you are wearing! Here are a few bag tutorials I liked. Tote bag. I am shortening the handles on this one and using way cuter material, but I liked the shape. The lindie bag.

I LOVE Amy Butler and am one day going to buys some of her bag patterns. But in the mean time, here are some of her free patterns.

Here is a cute ipod cover.

I found these while looking at some blogs I like. aren't they so cute! I love the felt hair.

And don't forget the millions of ideas on Martha Stewart!

fall pictures

Okay, since you asked, here's a post for you Susie. And yes, we are celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow. Looking forward to leftover turkey buns for days to come!

Roman has been loving chocolate chips lately.

I meant to post these back in October. We had so much fun playing outside this fall. Roman loved to throw the leaves in the air and run through grandpa's freshly raked pile of leaves. We also frequented the new park by our house. Too bad it snowed last night. No more fall fun. Now I need to go buy a snowsuit and boots.

just for you lindsay

I really wanted to sit down and get a post up tonight. Just for you Lindsay. So here I sit at my computer, all ready to post then head off to bed. I got all excited to upload pictures, and then no pictures. They are on Brad's computer. Oops. Maybe next time. So here are a few random pictures I had on here before we got the new computer. I can't not post now that I started!

For you Steph. It isn't a naked bum shot, but it is still a cute bum. Roman, not me. I love the tight pjs, makes his diaper bum so cute with his skinny little legs.

And here's one for you mom. You always say Roman looks so out of proportion big when I hold him, I guess you are right.

And since I have been on the maternity unit all month I have been thinking a lot about babies, hard not too. Just been thinking how amazing all those little babies are and reminiscing about this cute little guy.

Roman was a tiger. He really could have cared less what he was, I probably could have dressed him as a princess - and maybe I should have! But thanks to Bryan and Erin I didn't have to buy a costume this year. Most of the night he was a tiger with no head, it kept falling forward and covering his eyes. Really got in the way of his running up and down the street yelling at the other kids. He was so pumped to be out with the big kids and then to watch them all come to grandma's house to get candy. He wouldn't help hand out the candy, just wanted to keep it for himself. He also kept trying to take candy out of kids bags when they came to the door. We had lots of fun. But Ro wouldn't hold still very good for pictures, so ignore the blurriness in some of them.
