Where Have You Been?!?!

Some of you may be wondering, "Where the HECK have you BEEN?!?!"  I mean, come on.  It has been since Halloween that I posted.  Yes, I am hanging out in the blogging slacker pile....BUT I haven't just been doing nothing this whole time.  I promise.

Let me tell you what I have been up to.  My husband was gone for 8 whole days.  He went hunting for white tail deer in Missouri with his best friend.  Now, those of you that know me well know that when he is gone, I take it as a perfect opportunity to do something BIG in our house.  This year was no different.  I can't wait to show you the space that I worked on, but I will get to that starting tomorrow.

Here's a couple of other things that happened.  I made this for my sister in law for her birthday.  I got the kit from The Wood Connection and love the way that it turned out.  The model they had on display had the Grinch facing backwards so you wouldn't have to do the face.  I thought it would be much more cute with the face painted on, so I did it instead and am loving the way it turned out!  As an added bonus, my sister in law loves it too and already has her Christmas decorations up.  :)

It snowed here in Utah.  Like a lot.  Overnight.  When the girls woke up and saw the snow, they wanted to go play in it.  I suited them up and let them head out.  Lillie loved it.  Addie didn't.  This is the only smile I got.  After this, Addie sat down and cried.

When Addie started to cry, I brought her in and we enjoyed the snow inside while Lillie played outside.  It was far more enjoyable to watch Lillie throw snowballs at the window.  Addie thought it was hilarious and would laugh and laugh every single time the snow hit the window.

 This is where the events of the last week or two become not. fun. at. all.  We all got the flu.  It was a messy, smelly, and down right awful flu that I am just hoping is gone today.  It has been plaguing us since last Thursday and I am ready for it to be gone.  This photo was taken after a very long night of being sick.  I hate seeing my babies hurting so much!

Now that we are on the road to recovery (fingers crossed) I am hoping that I can get back to normal posting again.  I do have something HUGE in the works for YOU that I can hardly wait to tell you about, but that will have to wait another week.  (Just be excited.)  

That pretty much brings you up to speed on life right now.  I hope you'll stop by tomorrow when I start showing you the BIG project I have been working on.

Pin It!
