The Weekend...

I would just like to start this post out by saying...I can't bring myself to put bows on Amelia's head. I see so many cute pics of babies with bows on their heads and when I put one on Amelia - I can't stop laughing. Maybe I'll be able to do it when she gets more hair. Until then, I think she will be a hat girl vs. a bow girl. :)


Our weekend went by so fast! Alex ended up working for a little bit on Saturday, so Amelia and I slept in and just stayed at the house all day. Once Alex got home, we ordered wings and watched football...a great combo. :)


Alex and I are making a list of things that we want to accomplish in 2010. One of the things on that list is getting our finances into a computer program. This will allow us to know where all of our money is going. I'm pretty sure a big piece of the pie is going to say Target and Etsy...yikes! We actually finished that on Saturday, so there's one thing to mark off our list! We're going to work hard to get out of debt this year. It is totally possible for us to do this - we just have to make smart decisions with our money. We're going to do our best to have Amelia paid for before she's a year old! HA!


Many of you asked where I bought these cookie cutters. I bought them at Williams Sonoma. I don't think you can buy them online anymore, but you should be able to find them at your local WS. I have a set that I will be giving away in February, so if you want a chance to win a set - come back and see me!

I have to brag on my love-bug. She is sleeping SO WELL!! She is sleeping 7 hours every night. Adding the bath right before we put her to bed really seems to help. I'm praying that this child loves sleep like her Momma and continues to do this well. She's just the best baby. Seriously. We're blessed.

*she was so over pictures in this one - makes me laugh!*


Speaking of my love-bug...she's awake, so I had better go get her. :)

Love to all,

Gosh, Jill...I can see you smiling from here! Seriously! You can just tell you are the proudest Mommy! Enjoy the extra rest at night! That must be SOOOO nice!!!!!! Kade is just now 11 months, and he finally slept through the night last night. I am hoping that it was a sign of things to come! *fingers crossed*

I don't know what prayers were answered today but that is so awesome. I've never met you yet I'm so thankful for you in 'my' life. Thank you.

I love the chair.

Yay for getting a goal accomplished. i've accomplished a few things today as well. I need your address again...I lost it in email (keenerfamily@gmail.com).

Anyhow, i have fallen in lust with etsy too. :)

Oh my girls were not bow girls either. I couldn't do it. I wish the hats were out when they were younger, I would have been all over it since clips wouldn't stay in their bald heads..now neither one will keep anything in their hair. However, I did accomplish hair cuts today :)

Ya it's flying by! Hopefully I'll have a nursery post up in the next few weeks! Love the pattern on the chair that A is sitting on, very pretty! Have a great week!

She is so cute! We are very blessed with our son Evan as well. He's been the best sleeper since we brought him home basically. It's awesome!

I saw those cookie cutters at WS the last time I was there and I thought they were so cute! I bought the Halloween ones last October and they turned out really good!

Heather said...

She is a DOLL, bow or not!!!! :) What a cutie!!! And what a great sleeper!!! I just love that you have your "Faith Baby!" God is so good!

Faith said...

Okay, she's seriously so adorable!! Looks like such a big girl in that chair. Love her!!

twondra said...

Awww, she's so precious...even when she's over pictures. :)

Sounds like an amazing baby!!

Cheryl said...

Oh, I love all the pictures and I LOVE that chair!!! She is just precious without bows! I have the opposite problem. Hannah looks funny to me in hats so we are just going to be a bow girl and not a hat girl, even though there are so many cute hats out there! Thanks for the info on the cookie cutters. I wondered how you made those! Enjoy that sweet girl!

Oh, and I am going to try that bath thing right before bed. Thanks for the little tip!

Shannon said...

Those pics are so cute! I love the fabric of her chair. I bet she would be sooooooo cute in a bow!! You'll have to post a picture. :)

Mel said...

I love that chair so much I want to come steal it! You have the best taste in fabric, I just cannot ever find stuff that cute anywhere. She is too precious!
