Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

I just spent the last 15-20 humming this song to my son while rocking him to sleep for his nap. He seems to like it when I hum this particular song. When my daughter was a baby she also seemed to like it too. Now I'm probably going to have it stuck in my head the rest of the day!

Gobble Gobble

I don't know about any of you but I am SO looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner. My hubby's mom cooks and we all pig out! She usually has turkey and/or ham, yams, mashed potatoes w/gravy, rolls and of course pie. Mmmm mmmm pie! She usually has an apple and a pumpkin pie. I myself prefer the pumpkin pie loaded up with lots of cool whip! Oh I can't wait until tomorrow to fill my tummy with lots of yummy food!

My Little Rocket Scientist

I can't remember if I ever ended up blogging about this so I figured I would do so today. It's basically a post bragging about how smart my little girl is so even if I've already written about it, she is definitely worth writing about again!

Just wanted to share that my Kindergarten daughter is currently reading on a 2nd grade reading level. We are so proud of her and how smart she is! We call her our little rocket scientist. She loves school and has always loved to learn starting at a very young age. We hope this will take her places as she gets older!

Little Angels

These little angels are one of the newest creations in my Etsy shop. Mom and I spent part of one of our Saturdays making a lot of these. We will be having them at three upcoming craft shows we are participating in. We're hoping they will be a big seller for us. You just never know though. You can see them listed in my shop here if you'd like to take a peek.

Sleeping In

Soooooooo................I had all intentions of trying to sleep in this morning since it's Saturday and I hardly ever get to sleep in now that my daughter is in school. Don't really have any MAJOR plans today either so sleeping in sounded like a GREAT idea! Ummm.....yeah, sleeping in did not happen and here's why!

Well, we stayed up a bit late to begin with last night. I was crocheting on some things until about 12-12:30am. Can't really remember for sure. I woke up once in the middle of the night but not because of one of the kids. They both slept ALL night long! Yay! I myself just woke up. No biggie. Just rolled over and went back to sleep. Wasn't like when I have to get up, rock the baby for 10, 20, 30 minutes, sometimes longer until he falls back to sleep. Then of course you always have to use the bathroom too once you get woke up in the middle of the night thus making me usually be up at least 30 minutes on average when my son is the reason I'm awake in the middle of the night.

After my brief waking up and falling back to sleep I am sleeping soundly. Next thing I know I am waking up to my hubby getting out of bed and the annoying ringing of my cell phone alarm clock from the dining room in my purse. Grrrrrr!!!! I use the alarm on my cell phone as my alarm clock in the mornings during the week because I can have it right there by me on the head board of the bed. It isn't as loud as a regular alarm clock and with it right there by me I can easily grab it and turn it off before it wakes everyone up in the mornings. That way I can get ready before getting the kids up and around. Well, I forgot to turn it off for the weekend thus messing up my plans of sleeping in. Yeah, I know. That's my fault!

So at about 7:30am hubby brought me my phone and I shut off the alarm. I'm lying there in bed trying to decide if I want to just get up or if I want to try to fall back asleep. I chose to stay in bed. Well, I never really fell back asleep so I just got up about 45 minutes later. Figured everyone else is sleeping so I'd get up and try to accomplish some things before they all got up. Lucky you! First thing I'm accomplishing today is this blog post for all your reading eyes!

So much for sleeping in! Guess I'll try again tomorrow morning! Suppose I better go disable the 7:30am alarm on my cell phone though huh? Otherwise I'll be in the same boat as this morning! All I did this morning was make it to where it wouldn't go off again today. If I don't completely disable it I will we waking up to its annoying sound again tomorrow!

My Third Featured Etsian!

My third featured fellow Etsian is a wonderful shop I met on one of the BNR threads I am on. The spot light for tonight's blog post is shining on Awhile back I bought the cutest piggie card from this great shop. You can see this adorable little piggie card included in a bath set here in my Etsy shop.

I have been wanting and meaning to feature this wonderful woman that is absolutely fantastic for quite some time now. More than fantastic is the heart this particular shop owner has! As any of you who have been following my blog for awhile know, one of my best friends lost her mom to cancer a few months ago. My featured Etsian offered out of the kindness of her heart to make me a sympathy card to give to my friend at no charge. If only the world had more amazing people then it would be a much better place!

I found this to be the most unbelievably unselfish gesture for two reasons:

1.) She only knows me from the forum threads
2.) She did not know my friend at all.

I don't have a picture of the sympathy card she made for my friend but I will tell you it was a very nice, well made card. Be sure to check out her shop for a whole lot of wonderful cards and more! Now go look! Maybe you'll find something you can't live without!

Holy Conversations Batman

Recently someone had mentioned that they had been going through their Etsy conversations and deleting part of them. I decided to see how many I had. There is a whopping total of 1170. Wow! That's quite a few considering I've only been on Etsy for about 2 years. I'm a regular ol' chatterbox apparently! I'm sure there are some who have more than that and some that have less than that though. I think I will take the time sometime soon to delete the ones I don't think I need any longer. So how big of a chatterbox are you? How many Etsy conversations do YOU have? Do tell!

More Time To Blog

I love to blog but just feel like lately I don't have the time to sit and type out the things I'd like to write for you all to read. That thing called life just keeps getting in the way but hey, what can you do? Even though I don't get the chance to type out some of my topics I have however started jotting some of them down on paper to hopefully get the chance to blog about them some day. Yeah, you may be thinking, "How do you have the time to write them on paper but not type them on the computer?" Well, let me answer that for you! My son is completely spoiled rotten! He loves to be at my side whenever he can. It can be tough to try and type on the computer with him RIGHT there but if I'm sitting on the floor next to him and his toys he will play and not have interest in me for quite awhile. So I sometimes grab my pen and paper so I can write while I am sitting there beside him while he is playing. Hopefully I'll be able to find some more time to type out some of the things I'd like to share.

Calling Daddy

Hubby and I were in the kitchen and from across the house we hear, "Daddy." "Daddy." "DADDY!" Hubby started to walk that way. I told him our son was awake and just laying in his crib so don't get onto her for yelling but tell her next time to come walk in to talk to him. As he got closer to her room I hear, "It's crawling. IT'S CRAWLING FAST!" Turns out it was a tiny spider. She can be scared of the smallest things sometimes. Even those itty bitty black ants.
