Christmas List

Christmas wishes.

So. Mel said we should go Christmas shopping this morning, so I started thinking of things I could get her.
Here are a few of my ideas.Christmas List: new door handle.

Here is an idea I had yesterday while in the shower. It just hit me like inspiration.

Christmas list: New toilet lid.

Here is a gift idea I had the other day in the drive way. You never know when inspiration will come, you just have to be in tune, you know. Christmas list: New bumper.

I know its the bumper, but I think that name is a little confusing. I think we should call it the "don't bump her".

I am not sure who's name is on this next present.

Christmas list: New boat battery

Thank you for the tow, and a Merry Christmas to you.

And here is a gift we gave a little early to this dude while he was cutting across someones lawn.

The Christmas shopping season is early so let us hear your ideas so we can start planning our Thanksgiving Day Sales.

Standing Strong.

Chase is loving his two feet and looks for any mid-size object to use as support to pull himself up on his feet. As much as it'll be such an amazing moment to see him walk...I'm not ready to say goodbye to my little crawling baby.

*Several people have asked me if I really decorated for Christmas answer is yes. I was trying to beat Sara Darby this year since she's the queen of everything that is associated with Christmas. Jokes. We are leaving for the holidays around the 15th of December so I thought I should start early this year so I can enjoy my 12...yes I did say 12 nativity scenes before I take off.

What would it be like...

to fit through a doggie door???? Phil and I looked away for a couple minutes this morning and next thing you know, Chase discovered an exit out of the house and was half way through. Fast forward to later today...Phil was outside and I was organizing the Baby closet (an endless task) and all of a sudden...I run outside and find Chase laying on the cement after crawling through the dog door and falling down the deck stairs. I did the only proper motherly thing and freaked out even though he hardly had a scratch.

Chase LOVES the water facet.

Happy Halloween!

Our Halloween...

Pictures and pumpkins
Dressing Up

Can you guess who we were??? Hint...TV personalities.

HUH?????!!! I think Phil confused the holidays or candy just doesn't suffice anymore. When do you ever buy presents on Halloween? He'll just have to wait until Christmas to "officially" own it because I'm counting it as his santa gift.

Can't wait until next summer so we can get our wakeboard on. Maybe this new purchase will entice family/friends to visit :) Maybe I'll even get a little tan next summer...just maybe.

*Phil and I are in a blog attack war. It's all jokes and fun :)

I am one HAPPY wife!

What happened you ask? My AWESOME husband surprised me and came home last night!! I thought it was going to be another boring night alone, watching T.V. or working on my thesis. Phil has to spend long hours on the road which means many nights in hotel rooms but NOT last night :) Thanks Phil for driving the long, awful drive to surprise me!

Ugliest blog contest

So, this evening I decided it was time to refresh my blog background. I of course went to "cutest blog on the block" thinking as the website suggests that I would have an amazingly cute blog page after my visit. To my bitter disappointment I found many templates that had no place on a website that made claims of "the cutest". This particular background made a great laughing impression on Phil and I and inspired us to see if anyone could find an uglier back drop. It's a dare.

I woke up this morning and discovered that the entire top of the cake was missing. Not a bite left with the perfect frosting that used to beautifully lay on top. On Saturday night Phil discovered that the cake tasted much better with less chocolate and more frosting. Eating the top half of the cake was that perfect ratio. (kind of like my brother Brian who insists that the perfect ratio of nuts is 1 Almond to 3 peanuts...and literally counts them every bite) I must admit I did take part a little in Phil's discovery.

Our Reason: We wanted to and we could because we're the parents now!!!

CHASE UPDATE... He's army crawling!!! I just love it. This morning was the first sign of trouble. I walked away for a few minutes and upon my return I saw that Chase had found a pen which marked up his face. BRING ON THE MISCHIEF!!!!
