Coming and Going

I’m sure y’all are wondering on what is going to be moved over to the new blog and what isn’t. So today I am going to give an idea of what is switching over.

Of course the following are moving with me:

And I’ll be introducing a new category:

Saturday Snapshots will not be moving over. Saturdays have just gotten too hectic to guarantee a post. However, I will be doing this:

I’ll still be posting other things like rants, holiday recaps, and cooking stuff, but they aren’t getting their own fancy category tag (these listed can all be easily found under the “Found on the Blog” section of my new blog). I’m actually not too sure if I will post as many recipes anymore though. At the beginning of the year we’ll be starting a 6 week meal plan that we will rotate through the year, and most of the recipes on it aren’t of my own making.

I’ll be back later with a little on the whys of the move.

Saturday Snapshots (12/10)

What? You think I forgot?

Pfft. I never really forget… sometimes I just don’t ever get around to posting it.


And these… I didn’t forget, I’ve been battling the cold from hell all week… oh and I lost my voice too. And Bella has been battling the same hellish cold all week.

Here is prompt #4.

Decorating the tree

Rule number one for Christmas tree decorating…

If you are big and pregnant – don’t sit on the floor and help your kids decorate the tree if your husband is taking pictures, you’ll end up mostly just looking fat in all of them.

Rule number two for Christmas tree decorating…

Even if they were just washed, if someone is taking pictures of the tree decorating for your December Daily pages, don’t wear a pair of pajama bottoms you wore once that week already.

December 1st

I absolutely can not believe that it is already December. There should be some way of not getting shocked every year when this month starts, but it never fails, the start of this month always takes me completely unaware. I mean seriously, how is another year almost gone?? I swear it seems like just a few days ago we were having our 10 PM New Year launch with the kids to welcome in 2011. Just whoa.

On another note… look who showed up at my house last night:

Yup, that creepy elf is back for another year. I do not see how some parents get super creative with him every single blessed night, we have trouble just finding somewhere new to hide him every night for the kids. This year we are going a little different and he’ll be bringing the kids part of the Nativity story each night. I figure this way we’re teaching the kiddos while they have some fun. Unfortunately, we were all running so late this morning that we completely forgot to have the boys look for him before leaving for school. Ooops.

This month I decided to try something a little different. I’m sharing these prompts over on the Digital Scrapbooking board on Justmommies, and over on The Lilypad forums too, so I figured hey, I’m already thinking them up, sharing them, and having to actually hunt the stuff up for them, I might as well share on the blog too! What this basically is an every other day prompt that will carry through until Christmas – though not all will be Christmas themed, some will be year end wrap up types too. There are twelve prompts total, and each one asks for a list of twelve.12DaysONE
