Photo Phriday

Our dining room is carpeted, which I see as being a major design flaw. Jane, of course, is a messy eater/toddler.
Tan carpet + Food + Toddler = Disaster
Because I am tired of cleaning the carpet I decided to get a rug for under Jane's highchair. It is a lovely shade of clear and made of plastic. Okay, it's a shower curtain, but it works for me. The day after I put it under her chair, it was already saving the day.

At the very instant I was taking the above picture, Jane flung a piece of Jell-o behind her and it hit my hand just perfectly. I decided to document it for you all. She is a pretty good shot.


Since decorating the tree we have had many hours of tutorial about how she needs to leave the ornaments on the tree.


It's tough when the tree is so fascinating.

Here is a slideshow from the local Christmas parade last weekend.

4th Photo in 4th Folder

I wasn't tagged or anything, but I thought this picture was a good one. Last summer we went to Delta, Utah for the weekend to visit family and along the way we ran into an odd sight for a city girl. The cows were migrating or something all over the desert and the highway. These 2 were a little close for comfort so we stopped and stared while they stopped and stared. We had a moment.

Anyone else want to show off their 4th in their 4th?
Let's see it...

Jane, Jane, Bo Bane

Banana, fana, fo fane. Me, my, mo, mane. Jay-ane. I love this baby. She is so cute and suddenly getting so big! Check her out!She's suddenly into her dolly again. She'll carry her around all day with a rag or wipe and clean and cover her up. It's very cute. She's my little baby mama.
Her favorite hang out for about a week. Luckily she's forgotten about it for now.My little goggled pirate......showing off her little booty while digging for booty.Here we see an awesome display of morning hair.
And a coat I got on clearance at Old Navy. I love clearance shopping.
Look at her supermodel eyes! Such a little dolly.******************************************************************
I finally convinced Scott to wear some jeans. He hasn't worn any since high school and that was 10 years ago. He told me he felt weird all day at school dressed like this. I tried to get him to understand that he looked awesome, but he hasn't worn them again since. Doesn't he look handsome?!**************************************************************************

We're in the paper!

We just noticed that we are in the local paper. We had Thanksgiving with some people from Scott's program at school and they had a journalist there taking pictures. We didn't think anything of it until Scott remembered today. Our little Jane is making the news!

Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

Elder Wirthlin of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints passed away last night. There are some articles regarding his life and passing which can be found online. One can be found here. Something that touched me from that article was this:
"There is old proverb," Elder Wirthlin was wont to say, "which says, 'An inch of gold will not buy an inch of time.' We must put a sufficiently high value on time. It is valuable and should not be wasted."
I am such a time waster! I don't want to be, however, I feel trapped by my own laziness and sometimes don't know how to rise above it. However, I feel inspired by an apostle's words and I am going to strive to use my time more wisely. The article also stated that Elder Wirthlin would each morning type his schedule for the day. I remember as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I would write out my schedule for the day the night before, and then review it in the morning and would stick to it as best as possible. I am going to implement that again in my life. I'm excited about all the things that I will accomplish!

Black Friday

We love Black Friday. Probably we shouldn't as much as we do considering we have no money, but then when else are you going to get DVDs for $2?!?! Scott did his usual middle of the night shopping at Best Buy and Circuit City. I stayed home until the late hour of 6:30 am waiting for my turn since Jane was still sleeping and I couldn't bring myself to face the crowds with a tired baby. Once Scott finally made it back to the house I hit Home Depot for a drill/driver I've been wanting for about 2 years. The salesman asked if it was for me or my "boyfriend" (I was too tired to put mywedding ring on at 6 am). I thought, Am I being flirted with?. Then when I was asking for help in the bit department he called me "sweetheart". So, I think it was more of a condescending thing more than a flirting thing, but it was fun to think, if only for a second, that someone other than Scott might think I was cute without makeup or my hair done at 6:30 am. After that fun, I hit 2 Walmarts. Yes, 2. The first one was completely wiped out, so I thought I'd try another that had only opened a couple of months ago. I'm glad I did, because I found almost everything that I had wanted. I told Scott that next year, that is the Walmart that I'm hitting first thing. Those people in that neighborhood must still be
Black Friday Virgins.
So, what is so great about shopping at 5 am? Having ALL your Christmas shopping done by 7 am of course! Only 24 days left until my favorite day of the year!
Welcome to the Christmas season!
