good news Monday

  • The freezing rain has not returned (for now).
  • A good friend did me a huge favor and actually made my Christmas card this year!
  • Maryn is a potty-trainee super-star!  She actually got out of bed this evening and yelled downstairs to me that she needed to go.
Thanks for all your comments about my previous post.  To be honest, I wasn't sure if anyone besides my family would actually read the whole thing. To answer some of your inquiries:

The ornament party was really fun and I can't figure out why I never organized one or went to one before now.  It was so fun to be crafty and create something and then to see what other people's craft styles are like.  Yes, some of the ornaments I got were lame, but most were way cute and something I would have never thought to make myself.  So I urge all you fellow crafters- throw an ornament party!  You may wonder how I managed to secure a seemingly exclusive invitation seeing as I'm so new to the area.  Here's how it went- I was walking down the hall at church when a woman (the wife of one of our home teachers, I really barely know her) walked past me, said hi, then turned back around and said something along the lines of "are you crafty?".  I said something like "kind of, I can be".  She said "I have one more invitation to an ornament party, would you like to come?"  I accepted and that was that.  It seems like I was in the right place at the right time.  I plan to make some more ornaments, so I will post some pictures of those ones to give you an idea of what I made last week (just need to find the time).  

All in all, not bad for a Monday.

Yeah! Way to go Maryn. I know Isaac can do it, it's just me working up the courage to enforce it!

Can't wait to see some pictures of the ornaments!

I've always wanted to have an ornament party, but haven't done it. I need to put it on my list of things to do next Christmas (or at least before I die). Can't wait to see the pictures of the ones you made and some of the ones you received. :)

And, wow, you really did get punk'd the other day! Glad you survived!

okay just so you know what I'm going through.....zane has never, ever, not once, even a little one time, told me he WANTS to go on the potty. instead, he gets this frozen look on his face and says, "It's okay mom." and when I ask him what's okay, he cries and says, "Don't SAY THAT! It's okay, right? RIGHT MOM? RIGHT!!???!!"

okay so yesterday I watched the elmo potty movie a little closer with him, and sure enough there's a catchy little number that sings, "Accidents happen, and THAT'S OKAY!!!!!!" great. thanks elmo.

not like I'm continuing to be bitter or anything. :)
