Keeping it real with the messy Christmas morning house. Ah gotta love it! Opening her stocking, LOVE the face & sweet bedhead

Her "Santa" gift: A pink kitchen... She TOTALLY has loved that thing!
Last well actually first but who cares.. Roo and I sprinkling magic reindeer food in the lawn (aka oats with hairspray and glitter along with a dash of Christmas sprinkles. Lucky reindeer!) Also dont mind my chubby cheeks....This little girly is gonna be soooo worth it! But DO notice how my shoes are sinking into the snow BRRRR

Favorite part of the day: Roo in disbelief that Santa REALLY did eat the cookies and milk. Along with our yummy christmas day feast! That put all of us in a mad food coma! Merry Christmas

Wow! I cannot believe all the snow we have been pounded with...

Its madness!
Lots of snow outside means lots of mess inside. I will take heat over snow any day! Swimming does not lead to constant house cleaning, just pretty tanned skin. :) For now it is very pretty and makes Christmas feel that much more magical. This is the girly getting her 'snow' time so I am more sane and she gets worn out(fingers crossed) hopefully. Other than snow time we have well I have been nesting.. headband making, baby laundry doing, all sorts of getting ready for this girly stuff. Man oh man I forgot how good baby laundry smells. Oh and newborn diapers, really are they (the babes) that small??? EEEkk! Ahhhh makes me want her here now! (almost)If only I could finish her room up we would be ready. Guess its time to wrap up my projects and get ready for the best holiday ever...
P.S. snow makes for rad family night movies with hot coco
And FYI we got like a foot more of the powder this morning.....

For you Lauren, click bigger to read. I wanted you to see Mykah has NOT forgotten you!

Some days I feel like I have ADD. No really, I bounce from one project to the next rarely getting back to finish what I started. So I made a rule for myself of not starting something else till I finish what I had started first. Good rule uh? Now I guess I better follow it, I mean seeing how I put it on my blog and all? Really though, I think the end of a pregnancy can do some crazy things to your brain. For example my 'To Do' list that started out simple and now has like 20 things on it.

Top 5

-Baby 'S' 's nursery(finally came up with a color scheme..whew!)

-Mykah's room (finish it up)

-Kitchen (put together, reorganize)

-HEADBANDS..... Lots and some sparkly bracelets for Mykah and Baby S

-Finish Christmas shopping and mail off packages

Notice how Christmas is next week and its on the bottom of the list? Nice, good to see I am prioritizing!

P.S. TJmaxx(love that store) has the softest bath mats for cheap!(I really wanted one!) and Target has the best red icees :)

P.S.S. or is it P.P.S.? Family I really miss all your guts, like really REALLY bad. xoxo

I am in major nesting phase. Clean, organize, and put together every room phase is more like it! Only I am a complicated girl and I am making things hard on myself because I LIKE NO COLORS! I want a white nursery with touches of brown(crib) and cream with TONS of texture and glam. I would like a simple unfussy room for this baby that can be combined later on with Mykah's. Oh and I am on a mad tight budget! SO here are a few ideas I found that I really like... I LOVE the ties on the top of these curtains... darling maybe a DYI? *Help mom??
I love LOVE this shade of green.....

I like how clean this nursery feels. Plus, I have a wicker chair like this one that is already painted silver.
And I will take this striped chair please! Maybe just incorporate the pattern in the room? Also those darling butterfly shades.. So cute and SO me! Maybe I can make some?

You mean its a messy idea to let you 2 year old (and her dollies) help you make pizza dough? Uh, I would have never guessed! You cant even see how much flour got on her or the floor seeing how she is wearing white and so is the floor. After all our fun happinings,me and the swiffer are like 'this' (imagine fingers crossed) as of lately. But gosh the girl loves to cook and practice makes perfect.. rrrright?

I have seen so many cute advent calenders done and thought I would attempt to make one. Mykah was a great little helper. She did an awesome job glittering the envelopes, so good that my kitchen floor was glittered just as good. It was pretty rad all those sparkles in our house.... Anyway she saw these cute little 'birdies' at the craft store and we threw some of those in and the leftovers on our real tree..hehe I had some leftover rhinestones and threw some in the branches for fun and a little more sparkle... Look closer and you will see our little branch/tree is anchored in RICE... sweet eh? It was a fun little afternoon project short and sweet and really messy! Just the kind of project we like!
P.S. We filled the envelopes with little activity's to do each day, a random chocolate square here and there and a few little toys we snagged in the dollar section at walmart. We are so excited for christmas! (mainly cuz it means I am that much closer to meeting unnamed baby girl..:)

(older pic, notice dark hair and considerably smaller-ish tummy)

Today I am grateful for two little girls and since I keep it real....

'one' of the girls has been a stinker like NO OTHER the past two days....

AND ONE is giving me a ghetto booty! I will let you put the pieces together :0)
But really I am truly grateful for both of them, especially because at one point I thought I would never have kids of my own. That is what I remind myself when things get hairy as they often do in motherhood. Cant wait to meet this little baby girl!

I was asked for a good part of the morning to let her go out and play in the snow. I finally caved and figured she would only play for like 5 minutes max. Not so, she was out there for at least an half hour just stomping up and down the driveway. Pleased as punch she finally got out of the house.

Till she found a icky yucky bug. Ah girls! I was told to "go ahead, go kill it momma. I will wait here."

Christy, Me, Lauren, and Sheridan..... Amy I am not sure why you weren't in it with us xoxo!
See my massive belly? Ten weeks left thank you, and I went back Blonde! I needed a little change-me-upper!

Anywhoo, I absolutely love L.O.V.E. this time of year, especially seeing how we get to spend it in REAL snow! I am so gonna be a legend when we move back to AZ. Ha ha! Ya if only it were that easy! I am dying with this cold and its not even 'winter' yet! I miss the good ole AZ sun... But really even I cant be grumpy with snow when it makes everything look so darn pretty. Mykah loves all the snow and gets so excited to run out and play in it any chance she gets! Funny girl. Sooo not my child, Totally Todd's :)

We were lucky to be able to go down to AZ for Thanksgiving. Mykah was a trooper the drive down and back up, me well I could have not done the 15 hrs it took us to get back home due to the snow.To say the least we will be staying put till march..wink*wink* Happy Friday!
