Vintage Rose Wraps

My fabulous and ever wonderful friend Katie has started making and selling these super cute headbands, Vintage Rose Wraps. She gave me one for my birthday not long ago, and I thought it was so cute. I, traditionally, am not a headband girl (they itch don't you know). So, I tried this on, and wondered how long I would be able to stand wearing it. I wore it all day, and it never bothered me at all. Plus, I looked super cute. Okay, my hair/head looked super cute.

Go visit my friends blog, to see all the fun stuff. She has boutiques and shows, where she sells them in UT and AZ. I am sure she could mail one to you if you live in another location. I think this would be such a fun gift for the holidays.

Has it really been 2 months?

Two months ago, this little guy entered our lives. After visiting the Dr., we know that he is a strapping 10 lbs. 2 oz. and is sailing along in the 25% of height, weight, and head circumference. Wow, I sure grow 'em big.

Last year at this time, I was unsure if we were going to be able to have another Bisel baby.
I gave away all our baby stuff. Clothes, swings, bouncy chairs, all went to a consignment shop or to good will. I felt I had to purge myself of everything baby related in order to not obsess about the fact that we weren't able to conceive.

Enough happened last year to leave me wondering...What am I supposed to learn from all of this? For months, I didn't understand, I couldn't see the good coming forth.

Until now. This sweet baby is enjoyed more than I ever could have thought. The sleepless nights aren't as frustrating as they could be, and the laundry piling up doesn't cause me emotional breakdowns. Motherhood, this time around, seems calmer and certainly more appreciated. And, that, is a blessing indeed.

Halloween '09

I'm a little late. Did you know how hard it is to carry the camera all the way upstairs to the computer. It must be really really hard, because I had to enlist my sweetheart to do it. Halloween was a little interesting this year, the flu hit our family...and let's just say we didn't go all out this year. But, luckily, everyone did get to go trick or treating (either before the flu hit, or after it did it's damage). The weather was lovely and the candy was plentiful.

Liz wouldn't smile....because she is a witch. Witch's are mean, don't you know.
