With some help from one of these
Then you'll have some of these...

Lets not stop there because once both kids are in bed I am going to enjoy one of these

Valentine's wreath

I saw this on a blog that my friend posted on facebook and I fell in love.

I don't have enough time or patience to make it exactly the same way so I did this instead...

I use a straw wreath because I could not find a foam wreath and I covered it will red ribbon.  I made the flowers out of felt and they are really simple.

I was so happy with how it turned out that I made one for  a door prize at my MOPS group.

The Reveal...

As I promised I have an "after" picture from Josiah's surgery.

What I didn't expect was how difficult it is to teach someone how to stick their tongue out!

So here is the best we could get...

Taking the LEAP!!!

We are finally taking the leap...
Living COMPLETELY debt free!

We joined the class two weeks ago and our budget is all written and we are truckin' along full speed ahead.  Its very exciting to only have my car left to payoff!

We are now "living like no one else, so later we can live like no one else."

Well around here we like to start things out with a BANG!

So to ring in 2011, Josiah went in for surgery this morning.  It was a minor surgery albeit but any surgery is concering for a momma.

He had a frenuplasty because he was tongue tied.  So to fix that surgerically they have to cut the connecting skin under the tongue.  He is very excited because it means that he can finally stick out his tongue!


Stay tuned for an after picture.  We have to wait a couple of days so we do not pull any stitches.
