Bits and Pieces

My house is a wreck, the sink is full of dirty dishes, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to give Ethan watered down milk for lunch if I don't get my bootie to the grocery store. All signs that I hosted a dinner party this weekend. Ugh, love it but where are the cleaning fairies when you need them? 

Things are picking up around here and for our family, the holidays are already upon us. We have officially had our first Thanksgiving and I already feel like I've gained 5 pounds. So delicious! 

My sister and I

With the help of my mom I have gotten started on sewing Ethan's Christmas stocking and a special present I wanted to do for him. Why do craft projects always take 3 times longer than you originally planned? I was hoping to get at least one thing finished, but alas we are nowhere close. Oh well, it just means more fun crafting days are ahead of us!

I had the most delicious cake I have ever put in my mouth this weekend! My dad's birthday was on Saturday and I made him the Campfire Cake from Sweetpolita. Seriously, it's soooo good. Toasted marshmallow and marshmallow creme filling. Need I say more? It's a bit of work to get together, but sooooo worth it!

I have got to start ordering Christmas gifts. I honestly don't want to step foot in a store this year. Problem is one Christmas is always a week or so early for my family and yours truly forgets this and wham...ordering time is gone and I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Pretty sure I'm going to have to make some major changes when it comes to Christmas 2012 planning wise. 

Hopefully I'll have a more coherent post tomorrow. I've got to get my butt in gear and head out to the grocery store. In the rain. And probably without a list. I'm pretty sure this spells....disaster. Wish me luck.
