I was going to post a layout but I accidently left my camera on and the battery is dead. I would just charge it, if I could find the charger. Mike and I have pretty much torn the house apart looking for it. I finally gave up and just ordered a new one a few minutes ago. I hope it gets here quick!



Thanksgiving was great. We ended up going to four different dinners and I ate way too much! I don't think I've ever seen Drew eat that much. He's usually a picky eater but this day he was far from it. He also discovered a new found love for gravy or "graby" as he would say. Stacey was quite proud of that since her love for gravy is well known. I was pretty sure when Mike and I first started dating and he saw Stacey drink KFC gravy that he was going to run for the hills. I'm passing no judgement on gravy drinking since I've been known to eat a spoonful of A-1. Most of the time if I order a steak, it's all for the A-1. It's more like "would you like a steak with your A-1."

The Friday after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas tree. It always drives me nuts when I see Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving is even over but the next day, it's fair game to me! I can tell that this Christmas is going to be the start of fun. Drew was so excited to put up the tree. He even tried to help me decorate. He would put ornaments all in one place without hanging them on the tree. He would just sit them on the branch. We have this huge pile of ornaments all on one branch. I don't have the heart to move them. He was so proud of helping. When I asked Drew what he wanted Santa to bring him he said, to our surprise, a baby doll. Wait, did I hear that right? A baby doll! Our son wants a baby doll! I laughed. Mike laughed and tried hard to hide his worry. We decided that if a baby doll is what he wants, then a baby doll is what he will get. Mike's still a little unsure about getting him one and I'm not really sure why. From what I hear, he had a baby doll when he was little. (Thank goodness he doesn't read this! I would be sleeping on the couch for sure!)

Well, after two weeks of working pretty much nonstop I'm all done! That is such a great feeling! Today I'm going to do some scrapbooking. It's funny how my work is all scrapbooking and then when I have a day to do whatever I want, I want to scrapbook! Tomorrow is operation clean scrapbook room. Drew will be at daycare and the only way I see getting this room clean is to drag everything out of it and basically start over. Fun times, I'm sure.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

oh, I absolutely love organizing my scrapspace. It makes me feel so creative.
by the way, I think everyone should be gravy-hogs. A good gravy makes all the difference!

good luck cleaning/organizing your space. mine always gets MUCH WORSE before it gets better... but in the end it is so gratifying!

while I have never been a gravy drinker... everything tastes better with graby.
I think I may get a baby doll for my son... my older son played with them at school, but since my younger stays home, he doesn't have any....
I hope you are having a great week too!

UGH!! I need to do my scrap space. I haven't scrapped a few weeks now because it's a mess. You motivate me. Maybe I'll hit it tomorrow. I'll talk to you soon.

Hey Allison! So, where do you begin with picking out a baby doll for a boy? There are so many to choose from! Are there boy baby dolls?

Kodi Logan said...

glad you are getting some time for you Allison. :)

I just looked at a few baby dolls today to see what kind of options we had. I was surprised to find that there were a few boy baby dolls! I saw the cabbage patch one too. I think it's going to be fun seeing him interact with a baby doll and maybe it will help prepare him for the baby!
