Merry Christmas!!

Christmas is finally here!!!  Actually, I had a wonderful Christmas in December, but this year, Christmas keeps on coming!  My mother bought me a Kindle for my Christmas present.  She was so excited to get it for me, she kept telling me how wonderful my present was and how it is going to be the best present she has ever gotten me.  Then, she decided to tell me that she wanted to get my sister the same thing, the only problem was that she only ordered one that would be here for Christmas.  The second one she ordered a little later was going to be on backorder.  She decided since my sister lives in Maryland, she would give her MY Kindle and I would get the one that comes a little bit later.  Not a big deal, but the ship date kept getting pushed back further and further.  Until today!  My mother received my Kindle.  The great thing about having patience is... because it was shipped so late, Amazon gave my mom a free upgrade to a Kindle 2!  I cannot even tell you how exciting that is to me.  I love Christmas and I love my Mom and I really love my new Kindle!!!

It's GONE!!!!

Tim finally sold our boat today!!!  I know what most of you are thinking... We have a boat?  Well, we did have a boat.  My grandparents decided about a year and a half ago to give us a 1975 Cobalt tri-hull ski boat.  At first Tim and I were so excited... a free boat!  We live 30 minutes from Saguaro lake and thought that a boat (even an old boat) would be a great way to spend our summers.  When we got the boat, it had been sitting in a potato cellar for 7 years, so we had to spend a few LONG hours cleaning it up, when we were finished it looked great!  We then took it to a boat shop to get it tuned up and working.  To make a long story short we have taken our boat out to the lake 4 times and all 4 times it has either not worked or broken down on the water.  So our wonderful boat needless to say has cost us a lot of money and a lot of time and has given us a lot of heartbreak and frustration.  So, at the end of last summer I told Tim to put it up on Craig's list and get rid of it.  And today it actually sold!  I cannot tell you how happy that makes me.  Another great thing that has come out of selling our boat is, Tim found our camera that we have been missing since last summer!  We must have taken it to the lake last year, put it in the jockey box to keep it dry and there it has been sitting for the last 6 months.  But as life would have it, on Monday we were cleaning out the soon to be baby's room and were trying to get rid of as much stuff as possible.  We came across the camera's charge cord, computer cord, owner's manuel and battery chargers.  We decided to get rid of them, we had already gotten a new camera and decided why keep all the stuff for the old camera that we no longer had.  So we threw it out, and today we found the camera... life can be so frustrating sometimes!!

MAN blanket

Look at these pictures!!!  I am sure you would like to know how my manly husband learned how to use this womanly machine.
It all started when I told Tim I wanted to make Jax a few baby blankets.  I went to JoAnns and started to look at fabric.  There was a 50% off sale on their baby flannel so I went a little crazy and got enough fabric for 3 receiving blankets.  I was so excited, I got home and showed Tim the fabrics I selected.  He looked at them and said, "they're nice."  I could tell by they way he said "they're nice" that he did not really think that "they're nice".  So I asked him what was wrong with them and told me that they were too babyish.  He wanted our son to have a man blanket.  He wanted ME to go back to the store and buy man fabric and make Jax a blanket that was not so babyish.  I obviously did not understand the whole man blanket thing so I told him that if he wanted our son to have a man blanket he was going to have to make it himself.  I was completely surprised and amazed how Tim went to the store, bought the fabric (and thread and pillow and string), measured the fabric, pinned the fabric together and then sewed the blanket.  He did ask for tips here and there, but this man blanket was made by a true man.  So now Jax has a blanket that can fit on a twin bed and the cutest, little matching pillow that I have ever seen.  And I have the most amazing husband in the world!!!!

Baby Bedding

I have been told that even though nothing too exciting is going on in my life I still need to blog and make something not so exciting sound exciting.  So here is my attempt to do that...
YEAH!!!! I just got my baby bedding in the mail today!  Actually, I really am excited, I now have my crib, my bedding, my changing table/dresser and pile after pile of baby clothes!  The only thing I don't have right now that I probably should is a baby room.  The baby room is filled with boxes and containers of stuff that is not supposed to be in the baby room.  So all my exciting baby stuff is crammed into this room with everything else and to clean and organize it like it needs will be a project that will take a few days and maybe a storage unit.
