Welcome To Our Little Big House On The Prairie

Hhhmph! Its Hump Day!

Here we are in the middle of the week and what have I accomplished?


What did I do Monday?  Nothing, but clean.  Is my house still clean?


What did I do Tuesday?  Ran my fool hiney off.  


Eva The Diva's birthday is on Friday.  She's gonna be 7!  Wow!  

Eva wants a "Singing Victorious" Doll.  I've been hearing about this for the last 3 months. Repeatedly.  Yeah.  Who knew there was such a thing?  But there is...  There's also a "Singing Justin Bieber" Doll.  Gah!  Thank goodness she didn't want that!  I think I would have drawn a line there.


I went on the hunt for Victorious, pretty doubtful I would find it her, but lo and behold, there she was at the "Big Red and White Bull's Eye" store.  Right next to Justin Bieber.  Gah!  Coupled with a new head-to-toe outfit, I think Eva will be pretty happy.  I hope so, considering this is her "Birthday Pardy [sic] List":

What?  Your children don't use cream card stock to write their lists?  LOL!

Let's just say the girl knows what she wants!

I'm assuming that "Vatrees" is batteries????

If this was her birthday list, I don't even WANT to see her Christmas list that is currently under the Christmas tree - sealed - for Santa's eyes only.
Ahhh...  A list maker.  She gets it from her momma.  ;)

Then, I headed home with a "small" stop off at the local thrift (which is technically out of my way, but whatever), where I scored a few things for under $40 - when I can't get out of the "Bull's Eye On My Bank Account" store for under $200, even when I try.  I'll be sharing those finds with you on Friday.  Next, we came home and then headed back out an hour later to get Greyson from basketball practice at 5:00, with a stop at Micky D's to feed the bottomless pit of my growing pre-teen.  I then drove Mach-10 back home to be here less than a minute, dropped him off, and headed BACK out to take the younger two boys to watch our first Varsity Wrestling Dual at 6:00 (Its 20 minutes one way to the school.) - and swung by to pick Scott up at his parent's where he was waiting for me to bring him clothes to change into, instead of him coming all the way out to our house.  Er.  Yeah.  Story of my life.

We didn't get home until 10:45.

Momma was T-I-R-E-D.

I'm really hoping to find some time to craft today...  Or at least work on some of the finds that have been accumulating in the corner of my dining room, just giving me the beady eye waiting for me to get around to doing something with them.  But first, there's business invoices and a gift exchange present to be mailed and our Christmas cards - which have been addressed since last Monday night.

Oh, you wanted to see how they turned out?




See the dollar on the ground in between Greyson and Eva in the picture that's on the front of the card?


That's how we get 5 kids to behave for pictures.


It's the money shot.


And we left it in, so we could look back and laugh.

Landon must not have been too impressed with a dollar.

So, that's what I was up to yesterday - and what I'm going to be up to today.   I hope your day is full of crafting.  I'm hoping I can squeeze some time in for a little myself.

Until tomorrow...
