Sharin' the Love

Soo I've been getting sick of having long hair because of how much it weighs. I even get headaches from it. Anyway I have never been brave enough to get it cut real short, so I decided it was time. My friend Melodie cuts hair and she was the person who cut it the last time and I loved how she did the layers and everything. I was glad to share this exciting/scary experience with her rather than some unknown stylist at a great clips or something lol. Here is the picture of the before and after. I'll have to play with it and take some more pics. Still can't believe I did it! I like the freedom feel though haha.

Potty Adventure

So some of you may or may not know that Stella has been potty training since November. At the beginning she was awesome, but the only place that she seemed to have accidents was nanny's house. Then she had a period of no accidents and now it seems she has a little more than she ever did haha. It's definately a roller coaster ride :) Anyway today I asked her "Ok do you need to go potty before we go bye bye?" And she replied "Nope." And I asked "Are you sure?" She replied "Sure." We were on our way. We got to the bank drive thru and made our deposit and then she goes "Mommy potty." I was like uh-oh did she go or does she need to go. So I told her to hold it and we'll find a place for her to go potty. I ended up pulling over by a field and sitting her down so she could go lol. I was embarrassed but I guess that's the consequence of not having an accident in the car. That was our wonderful adventure today. I think Stella liked it because she wanted to stop on the side of the road to go potty again haha. What have I started? :/

Update of Dec....Nov will come

So our main house computer (the one where everything is saved pictures, files, etc.) has been acting really weird lately. It has been shutting down and restarting on it's own multiple times a day for no apparent reason. We probably should take it in, but unfortunately we are pretty low on the funds, since Curt has been unemployed since the end of July. Good news though he starts his new job at Lifelock on Monday Jan. 17 YAY!! (more of that to come later)
Back to the task at hand I had all the pictures from Dec and Jan on our camera still so I went ahead and downloaded them on my laptap. Thank goodness for laptops haha. Anyway the following post is all about our December. Hopefully our other computer gets fixed and I can update you all on our November.
On the 9th Lincoln had his first haircut here is a before and after. His poor cheeks didn't look good at all that day. He has his ups and downs with how they look on a day-to-day basis. He had just turned 6 months on the 8th. Curtis was the one who said that Lincoln really needed a haircut and I'm sure glad we did. Although at the time I was so sad that my little baby looked so grown up! :(

Here's Lincoln sitting up so well on his own in his Sunday best. Love my sweet handsome boy! I believe he started sitting up with no support in the beginning of Dec.

Stella enjoying her candy cane and her ride. Making a silly face.
On our anniversary (Dec. 14th 3 years already!) we took the kids to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa and Stella loved walking around and seeing all the cool stuff. She especially loved climbing on the boats and quads! :)
On Christmas Stella got a cute new outfit and boots, as well as a sweet fairy backpack.
And both Stella and Lincoln got to see Santa for the 2nd time at Grandma Jean's annual Christmas lunch. :)
And finally on New Year's Eve we had Grandma's Jean's christmas gift of a fun bouncy obstacle course and delicious soups at Dennis and Michelle's. Unfortunately my camera died and I was only able to capture Stella's red nose (proof of how cold it was that day). And she was super happy that popcorn was readily available that she carried her bag everywhere. hehe She loves her popcorn!


It's time to admit to myself, that I am obsessed with ANY and ALL crafting blogs and FREE tutorials! I just love looking at the endless possibilities. One day I will have the money to make these possibilities happen. :) On another note, I have made a New Year's resolution today at 1:03 am haha to be better about updating my blog. I realize that there are things that I should seriously be posting not only because they're funny, adorable and memorable; but because I want to share these moments with my fellow followers. And to one day come back and reflect on such posts.

Sweetest Prayer

So last night I witnessed the sweetest prayer ever. Stella and I knelt down by her bed ready to say prayer and she wanted to say it, so I said ok. Here is what she said: Hebeny fauder uh ben, ben, ben, uh acho, caler, uh carkie, ben, libi jesus amen. She fails to mention daddy, mommy and keenkin; instead she mentions Ben a ton and Caler (aka Caleb, Rachel's friend). I told Curtis we're not loved haha. Being Stella and Lincoln's mom has been the most rewarding and greatest adventure I have experienced; and it has only just begun. They seriously bring so much happiness to our family I don't know what I would do without them!
