My Boys Monday

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving and a great long weekend! I know we did! Turkey and left overs are pretty much eaten and the house is almost completely decked out for Christmas!
I found a great turkey t-shirt tutorial over at One more Moore and just had to make a couple for the boys.
Here they are being cute in their Turkey Day shirts :o)
I found this adorable tutorial over at she wears flowers. Totally thinking about making it for next year!
Today we are making our annual trip to see Santa. I really hope Munch behaves for pictures! Cross your fingers!!

Wish List Thursday

Wish List Thursday...cause Wish List Wednesday just wasn't going to happen.
Yesterday I was reading through some of my favorite blogs and stopped by Do You Mind If I Knit. In one of her recent entries she wrote about her vacation to Cornwall.
So yesterday I daydreamed about running away to stay in a little cottage in Cornwall for the holidays. Just me and my boys. While I daydreamed I made a little travel treasury.
So Santa, if you are listening, 4 passports, plane tickets and a cottage rental in Cornwall please. :o)

This past Sunday my sister completed the 3 Day Walk for the Cure. I am so proud of her, not only for raising $7000 with her team for a wonderful cause, but also for walking 60 miles!
We went to the closing ceremony to show her our support, so I had to do something for the boys. They are just iron-on's I printed off, but they came out pretty cute. Wish the pink had come out a little darker, but they looked good in person.
Real Men Wear Pink!!
My sister wanted to dress up for the walk so I made tu-tu's for all three girls.
Don't they look great?
I don't know if I will make another adult size tu-tu again! It was super easy, but it took a TON of tulle and a lot of time...kinda love the end result though.
Oh! And the basket was sold just days before the walk. Whoo Hoo!
I would love to be able to walk one year, but after starting back up on Spark People this week and starting to excercise again, I can say with certainty that I have a LONG way to go before I can walk 60 miles.

Wish List Wednesday - Sleep

I am operating on very little sleep right now. Tuesday morning started with a 4 am wake up call from Baby Nox, who also decided to try and boycot nap and bedtime. Last night I had a 2am wake up call, followed by another at 3:30am and another at 5am. Two of the wake up calls were my 2 year old, who was trying REALLY hard to have a party...that or practicing for tryouts for cirque du soleil, cause I swear when I went in to check on him he was 2 feet off his mattress.
So here are two things that I think all mothers should have:
An overly fantastic sleep that everyone will know that Mama needs some shut eye.
And a sweet smelling sleep pillow, to mask the odors of spit up and dirty diapers. Or you could just pretend you're taking a nap in a field of lavender. Sweet Dreams!!
