Real water bed

My sister posted this on her blog and It made me laugh so hard that I was practically crying. My boys came running in to see what in the world was going on with their Mother. I LOVE candid camera stuff, but hope to never find myself in one. My favorite part of this is the slow motion replay shot from above and who wouldn't love the two hilarious chubby ladies at the end of the video....you'll have to watch it to see what I am talking about.
Enjoy! Thanks Ali! :)

New toys....

for me!!! So, remember the cool toy that I won? Well it showed up on my doorstep earlier this week and it was like Christmas morning for me! I've been playing with it over the last few days, just learning about all the cool stuff that I can do with it and let me tell you, it is FUN!!! So then a week or so ago, Brett bought me another super fun toy (a scroll saw) that I have been playing with and I combined the two and came up with this cute project that we will be making for our Terrfic Tuesday (Super Saturday on a Tuesday night)in Relief Society that is coming up next month: (can you believe that I cut the wood myself?!)





I used my new Silhouette to cut the vinyl. I love how it turned out. Now I can change out the magnets for each season. I am also planning to cut some more pieces that are holiday related! So much fun!

I also found this cute frame from IKEA and I made this:

I love that it is double sided one side for memo's and the other side is a dry erase board to write reminders, messages or love notes......all for just 99 cents! This too will be a Super Saturday craft! I am on a crafting kick, so there will be lots more fun crafts to come!

Back to blogging....

Wow, I haven't been very good with blogging lately and I am not sure who is even reading about my musings anymore, but here is a quick update on what has been going on with me and my family Going back to July....Austin had his 4th birthday! We had a fun little birthday party while we were in UT with all of his cousins. We (all 14 minus little Nixon + 6 Mom's) went to see the movie "How to Train your Dragon" and then back to Grandma's for cake and presents and fun! Thanks everyone for coming! We had a blast! (*I have no pics of the event...Mom do you?) Then as if that wasn't enough, Austin got to celebrate a couple of days later back home with his family. Then in Aug., Ethan hit this little milestone:

Now he is walking pretty good. He looks like a little baby Frankenstein though! I will have to post another video of him walking soon. As for life in general, we are still just plugging away on the house and making improvements here and there. I will post pics of our progress soon.

(insert high pitched, girl scream mixed with giggling here)

And you'll have to go here to figure out why. (Hint, I won something....Big!)

Ladies, I am feeling a craft night coming on....who's game? :)
