"PleeeeAse?"

I finally got a video of Colton saying please, but I have to admit it is not as cute as usual because he wasn't sure why he was saying please! Any whoo! The picture below is from supper Sunday night, this is Colton playing with his FAVORITE friend Darin! They were playing with this pickup and and then dumping the tractor off of the back - apparently a great time had by all!

Busy?

I feel like I have been running my butt off as of late, but maybe that's just at work. Actually Colton and I spent the last weekend at home for the most part. I haven't even been inspired to take any pictures, though I do need to capture a video of Colton saying "Please!" It's the funniest thing ever, and you can be sure he now gets whatever he wants as long as he says please. What I have been working on when I get a few spare moments is a shop at etsy.com. I've named the shop "Grace In The Margins" and have been working on some things I would like to sell. I had a bit of a camera issue as it was taking TOO good of pictures for the website, if you can imagine such a thing. I have that figured out, now I just need to retake the pictures so I can post some items. So hopefully very shortly I will be posting what I have for sale and you will be able to visit my shop and actually see and buy things...exciting I know! For now I leave you with my Etsy banner, not very original I know, but hopefully I can come up with something a little better after I get going.

Until next time

Mom-Preneur Shop-A-Thon

Here is another great Christmas Shopping idea. Tip Junkie is hosting a mom-preneur shop-a-thon, pretty similar to the moms unite I was just talking about. This is a huge list of shops to check out, and they are all great! For the next 12 days Tip Junkie is doing 2 giveaways a day, so if you have a blog and want to help promote mom-preneurs jump on over there and check it out.

Christmas is Coming

With the economy the way it is, and a lot of people struggling to provide for their families. I have decided to promote a great cause "Mom's Unite". You can find this button on the right side of my blog and it will take you to a great blog "A Soft Place To Land" which has a list of mom made shops. That's right its online shopping supporting moms. I think it feels good to buy from moms and ecspecially those who are stay at home mom and are looking for a little extra income. So here are a couple of examples of what you might find on the link!

Sunday Ponderings

UPDATED: I wanted to update this post because the first time I posted Colton was sitting on my lap thinking that he should be the one typing! Any who! I wanted to draw your attention to the new button on the right side of the blog. Clicking on this button will direct you to the blog "My Charming Kids" if you need to hear something inspirational this is the blog to read. I don't want to ruin it for you if are going to read it for your self, but this is a miracle only God could have been a part of, so if you have some extra time please stop by this blog to read the amazing story of MckMuffin, you won't be dissapointed.

Well here you are the MUCH anticipated picture of our kitchen redo. What did we do? We knocked a wall down, right under that sign is hanging. Then we painted everything a green color, patched the vinyl flooring, and the wood worked. A good (no great) job done, and now a bigger kitchen!

Below is the infamous picture of the pumpkins Colton decorated last weekend ...pretty scary!

And here is Colton the spider!

until next time KB
