Luke sure knows how to make me laugh...

While tucking Luke in last night he looks up at me and says....
"Mommy, Christmas will be nice for you and daddy..all of our toys will be free, because Santa will bring them"....

That boy cracks me up.. ahhhh innocence

Brilliant diy project spotted..

I have no idea where this last week has gone..
between dealing with sickness (who isn't) and my bathroom being gutted.. (don't ask)

and about a million other things going on.. you think I wouldn't have time to think about Christmas and cute little diy projects..especially since Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet..

but here I am thinking about creating a version of this little brilliant snowman scene using twine..

I mean how fantastic is this! Snowmen make me so happy..

Gingerbread House Party...

Mommy gets baking day..
How about a Gingerbread House Party for the kids...
I have Christmas on the brain..Can you tell?

I was searching for ideas of things to make on baking day and I kept coming across all these great Gingerbread houses.. my kids heart making them.. why not make it a party..

They even have these little gift boxes from Oriental Trading Company.. you could fill them up with all the supplies the kids would need to decorate the houses and let them go to town... put on some fun Christmas music and have prizes for the most creative creations.. instant easy fun..

And on top of that I found an idea for baking day...
Chocolate Covered Gingerbread Marshmallow Cookie Sandwiches anyone?
