Well, I went with my terrific friend Lois and our moms to the annual Hafen Craft Show this year. Of course we all wanted to spend way more than we would allow ourselves, and I'm happy to report we all got out of there without spending more than we wanted! Whew...well I only attribute my not spending so much to the fact that I had no money to spend in the first place! Even though I had no money magically I left with only spending $30! I was so proud of myself for making a choice of what I wanted! I ended up picking a super cute magnet board with a couple of magnets and two cute Christmas ornaments for the boys. Among the things I truely wished for at the show were a large 3'x3' magnetic board (I can't tell you what my obsession with magnetic boards are lately) and a super cute set of blocks with a block they sat on that said "til Christmas" the blocks were numbered and it was a cute countdown to Christmas! I absolutely loved it....well until I saw the price! $25 for these blocks which would have taken all of my spending money! Yikes!! I couldn't pay for something I know I would be able to make myself, so this weekend I decided to make them myself. My hardworking "Elf" Al cut the pieces for me and I went to work! I can't believe I created something that I could essentially sell for $25! I am so proud of myself! I had to post a picture for you all to see!

Like I said, Amy is my very talented, very energetic and very awesome cousin who has a blog of her own. I would love for you all to check it out and if you are loving the pics that I have posted, then give her a jingle and get your own done! She is super talented and takes the best pics I have ever had of my boys! I am just in awe of her view through the lens! I don't think I could rant and rave about her enough...you know I am sure people are seriously sick of hearing about her, but I'm sorry, I won't shut up! I have all the reason to be proud of the great work she does out of her home, holding one daughter on her hip while juggling the schedules of three other kids and an awesome husband. Yeah....I guess I'll shut up now, but only if you promise to check out her page....and if you are ever in Orem.....
So I have been checking out my awesome cousin's blogspot for quite some time now amyharrisonphotography.blogspot.com and I just love how she posts all the pics and info she does. I think to myself how does someone find the time to do this kinda thing? Well, I decided to put a half an hour aside and finally create my own! Here we go, not a lot to say, but hopefully I will get better and better at this...I guess I could think of it as a little summary of my day, week, and hopefully not let it get so bad a a monthly entry! Well I think that I have babbled on about nothing long enough, let me get to the good stuff!
