On Tuesday I picked my son up from school. It was great to see his teacher back from Gall-Bladder surgery. They have really missed her. On the way home Owen said "I am happy it is Thanksgiving but I am not happy we are out of school." So sad. I am glad he loves school so much. I hope that continues till he grraduates!

Nathan's family decided this year to push lunch back to 3 or have dinner early. How ever you want to look at it. It was great. We got up and hung around the house. I got a nap. And then around noon I started cooking my potatoes and making my salad. Having a realaxed morning was really nice. I totally did not get my camera out. But Nathan's aunt was nice enough to sent me a couple of pics. Hope all of you had a blessed Thanksgiving.

Christmas Ideas

Tis the season. My son had me singing Christmas Carols on the way home today. It got me to thinking about what we are going to be getting people this year. And do I get it now or try to do the day after Thanksgiving mad dash! Well, My wonderful Mother-in-law has introduced me to shopping online. What a wonderful thing. You don't have to go anywhere and it arrives at your door step. Here are some of my favorite sites: and

Now if you are like me a like to support other work at home moms. Who are trying to raise their families and make an extra buck then you need to look at these two.

If you live in the Oklahoma City area check out Holly's sweets. She makes anything chocolate that you can dream of. I use her alot for baby showers. But, she also has great gift sets.

Another wonderful woman is Sara from Sara's Art House. You can find her blog here. In fact right now she is offering gift certificates for Custom paintings she does. I have ordered her print from her esty store. I have a custom painting on order and I am so excited! It is my birthday present this year.

Hope everyone has a blessed Holiday Season.

Happy Halloween

What a great Halloween. This year we actually live in a neighborhood. So, we went Trick or Treating around here. It was so much fun. Some of the houses were really decked out. And I am proud of Owen. He said, "I'm not scared, I'm Batman!"

It's Batman and Monkey Boy! I love them so much and am a truly lucky mom.
