Real Random

None of these "events" deserved a full post so they're all here together.
We are pretty big recyclers in our family. However, big cardboard boxes have to be broken down and tied together. For some reason, this is so hard for me and John. Like, getting out some yarn and actually tying them together is one of the hardest chores to do! We're always out of string to tie it with, the boxes are different sizes so the slide around, and ... well it's just a pain (and maybe a little bit lazy, but just a little). Solution: children are naturally destructive. Give them a cardboard box, and they are sure to destroy it. They break it down, we put it in a recycling bag, everyone's happy!
Cody, as you may remember from previous posts, is weird. He also thinks he's pretty funny. Example: Wearing and walking in my boots and his pants tucked into his sock.
Need I say more?

Decorating the Christmas Tree

We put our Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving because Landon was sooo excited about it. So we put it up and decorated it. The boys were actually getting into the ornaments and the hooks while John and I were doing other stuff so we had to stop what we were doing and help them out. They were doing a pretty good job on their own. A couple days later, I'd picked up some candy canes so we put those on one night. The day after we put up our tree, we went over to my parents house and Landon insisted that they put up their tree too. So we got to help decorate yet another tree.
Reaching up high!
Trying really hard to get a hook on.
And the candy canes.
I know, super interesting post. I'm almost bored reading it myself!!

A New Blog

Instead of trying to put crafty stuff on here, I started a new blog. I just didn't want it getting mixed in with the family side of stuff and maybe have people visiting it whom I don't care to read about my family. So, basically on this blog, I'm going to be posting all the stuff that I do through Pinterest. Hopefully it'll motivate me to get off the computer, stop pinning, and actually make and do the stuff I'm pinning. Anyways, the new blog is Basically, if I can do this stuff, then anyone could do it! I may not be able to do it very well but I'm trying and hopefully I'll learn new skills! Come and visit!
