Wreath making at Pedal Pushers!!!

Black friday I got up at four shopped til 9 worked til 12 slept til 1 made wreaths and other Christmas creations til 5 and blogged til 9 lol!!!! Day packed full...about to crash but here are all my creations!!! BEAUTIFUL if I do say so myself...and I do!


We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. I was extremely thankful for my amazing husband, beautiful family and friends and all their support in our trying times. This year has been tough and I think it just makes me appreciate everyone and everything so much more! The food was amazing, simply delicious and everyone brought like 3 or 4 things to the meal so it wen tmuch more smoothly this year. Then at the dinner table my father in law said grace. and Ethan my 5 year old nephew says I have something to say! I love God and I wish I could meet him, and (as his lip is quivering and hes looking about to cry and totally serious) I love everybody in the world! I wept at the table. I am all hopped up on hormones so nothing isnt a tear jerker these days. It was the sweetest thing ever! Here are some of the photos!

Catching everyone up!

Twilight NEW MOON was AMAZING!!! I am going to start reading the books today!!! Plus just going out with the girls was a blast!!! I cannot believe it has been this long since I last wrote!!! So much has happened! I had an amazing Thanksgiving!!! I will post some pics.

I Made a QUILT!!! I am just adding a few buttons to make sure that it stays together. It was fun and I think its super cute!!!

This was how my Ovadril shot came to me....I dont know if I have posted about my PCOS yet but that is why it is really hard for us to concieve. We have been trying naturally for over a year and 2nd month on Chlomid now. The last month I only had one viable egg and we did not get pregnant. Although I took 5 positive tests!!! DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT take a pregnancy test if you are on Ovadril shots for your LH surge it is pure HCG and will create a false positive (or 5). My doc didnt tell me that So we totally got our hopes up!!!I hate this!!! This has got to be the most frustrating thing to go through!! I hope we can get pregnant this time though. I doubled my Chlomid this month and had 3 viable eggs!!! So i have my prayers going and my fingers crossed. Please please please!!!

Family photo shoot for our Christmas card!!!

Lumberjack Kate!!!

The original skyline. With two 30 year old trees looming over my roof waiting to fall this winter and ruin it.

First tree down!!

Second tree didnt land where we wanted it to exactly...more like exactly where we didnt want it to, ON THE NEIGHBORS YARD!!! Broke the fence!

These were the Cookies that I baked my neighbors to say sorry!!! I am so lucky that they were so forgiving.

And here is or new open skyline!!!

A Homemade Christmas

Me and Danielle (and now Chrissy Behne) are doing a homemade christmas, one or two crafts every week. What did I do lately?...Recipe Jars!!!

I also feel like someone is always having a baby or baby shower so I made 30 burpees!!! There were all equally adorable. I love the peanut shape it fits perfectly on your shoulder.

Here they are spread out on my kitchen table.

Oragami ornaments are next! I just use scrapbooking paper and ribbon, super cheap and simple project!

Here is Dani with the ones she made. We had dinner and crafts at the Behne household this week, and it was a blast! Grace is their little girl, and she is adorable!!!
