Livin' the Dream

SUNDAY
Wake up, injure toe by merely exiting the bed. Grace-full. [And frail, evidently.] That's me.


DAILY
Take Puddin' down from kitchen table.

[And yes, my table IS always that pristine.]

From the look on his face, you can see he's highly concerned for his safety. However, this singular action is cause for his Mommy to leave her happy place no less than 15 times a day.

FRIDAY
Make very first decoupage as gift for niece with first initial, A.
Beam, because I'm so pleased with how it turned out.


IN BETWEEN HOBBLING AND GLUING AND REMOVING SMALL CHILD FROM HIGH PLACES:
Wrap gifts - almost my favorite part of giving.
And then there's this, which really got me out of my comfort zone.

We made these:
(Mama does not like to intentionally make more messes she has to clean up.)

(Even in the name of fun and good memories.)

(Because I suck like that.)

That's Pam spray that gives their hands such a high shine.

Seriously? Pam? On 4 and 5 year old hands? Isn't that sort of, um, messy?

Yeahhhhh..... It iiisss........

And there you have it.
In part at least.
My week.
Livin' the dream.

I'm laughing at how good your toenails look, with your injured toe.

And, what are those things you made? I know they're rice krispie treats. Are they ornaments?

Anyway, I gave you an award over at my place. Come on over, girly. What else are you going to do on that broken toe?

Rachel said...

looks like you had fun! (with the krispie treats) Hope your toe feels better soon - and yes, your pedicure looks GREAT!! :)

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

Good GRIEF, girl! You're whole toe matches your pretty polish!

And that houndstooth gift really should be for me. Oh how I covet houndstooth. Whoo!

I just saw the recipe for those ornaments just yesterday! I was thinking of trying them, and then I thought, "Do I really have time for the mess?" Naaaaaahhhhh.

:-) Have a great CHRISTmas!

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Yikes, girl! Your poor toe. I'm with you on the whle graceful thing...I run into things all the time and have the bumps and bruises to show for it.

You are a genius gift-wrapper! I would be embarrassed to show you my presents...please, give me lessons. :)

DidiLyn said...
