mason's first vlog

for the longest time i was so confused by the word vlog....
i always thought well maybe that blog author made a type-o
{i mean the 'v' and the 'b' on the keyboard are pretty close together, so maybe they accidentally typed the 'v' instead of the 'b'}
duh....come on melinda

anyways, here is masons favy fav part of his day....
via his vloggy vlog :)

warning: ok so mase is in the bathtub, sorry you will see some baby privates....sorry
but come on, he's a babe, so it's ok? i hope so.

mygoodness. ilovehim.

today i am thankful for....

our little mason :) AND
the comfort of knowing that God knows and wants what is best for our children...
...even more than we do.

I think many times that I couldn't love mason more...
...but someone does...

Here is a lullaby that matt hammitt (sanctus real lead singer) and jason ingram wrote :
i couldn't love you more

in the night, He is with you
at morning light, He is with you
do not fear, He is with you
when i'm not here, He is with you

i couldn't love you more
i couldn't love you more
oh, i couldn't love you more
but somebody does,

rest your eyes, He is with you
i pray you find that He is with you
when i let go, He is with you
and i know that He is with you

i couldn't love you more
i couldn't love you more
oh, i couldn't love you more
but somebody does,

you are mine for a moment
but you are His, forever His
in this life i am holding you
but in His arms you live

your mamma

new DIY project...

yarn wreath with felt flowers

i want to keep making them, i just need to find:

supplies you will need: straw wreaths, yarn, felt, scissors, glue, and any other adorable embellishment your little heart desires :)

step 1: keep the plastic wrapping on the straw wreath. it works much better and is less messy when you leave the wrap on. you could probably use a foam wreath as well but i would assume the yarn sticks better to the wrap of the straw wreath.

step 2: wrap the wreath with yarn. you will want to keep the yarn tight, but keep in mind that it is nearly impossible to keep the yarn perfectly lined up on the whole entire wreath. im my opinion imperfection = perfection :)
tie a knot to begin and a knot to end. i used two rolls of yarn for my wreath made by.....
vanna white....who knew?

step 3: make felt flowers

*cut a circle out of felt. the bigger the circle, the bigger the flower
*cut around the outside of the circle to make it have a waved look

*pick any point of the circle to start cutting the felt. you will be cutting a large spiral shape so that you will end up with one long strip of felt.

*when you get to the very end you will have a circle or oval shape left that you will want to leave and not cut into. this will be the base of your flower.
*take the end of the felt where you began cutting and start to roll. you will want to keep it tight in the beginning so it holds. if you want a smaller more circular flower keep it tight. if you want it to have a more open look you can keep it a little more loose as you roll it.
*once you get to the end you will glue the bottom onto the flower. i used hot glue, you can use a strong craft glue too.

*make as many flowers as you would like with different sizes and colors.

step 4: glue and place them randomly. add any other embellishments as you would like.

step5: add a ribbon, raffia, twine, fabric, etc to hang you wreath with.

step 6: enjoy your beautiful, handmade goodness :)
i still need to find a home for my wreath :)

enjoy and have fun gettin crafty!!!! :)


a bike for....

who wouldn't want a bike like that? that could hold your dog and a basket of pretty flowers.
all awhile you peddle along with a cute scarf and darling boots!

all need is a non-psycho dog to ride with and
the bike. but you can have a chance to win the bike!!!!

also, im going to start to write about what i am thankful for everyday!
even though it's the 7th of november, i can start being thankful right?!? never to late to be thankful for what the Lord gives us!!! :)

today i am thankful for the time extra hour of sleep was glorious
and mason did well.
i put him to bed an hour later than normal because i thought he would wake up at 5:30 instead of 6:30am.
but he didn't!!
6:30 it was...up and at'em.
so cheers to a happy little man at 6:30am!!!

how will i ever....


So, it's November and that means....time to pick out our Christmas card :)
this will be our 2nd official Christmas card as family.
our first card included our 'son' bentley
our 2nd card will include our 'real' son :)

the problem lies with which Christmas card i will be getting....
there are so many choices/designs i feel some anxiety when trying to decide.
i'm really getting hung up on whether to choose the one big picture card or the card with many small photos....hmmmmm

i do like me some red and green...

what about a break from the traditional red and green and taking a walk on the colorful side?

what about this seafoam green color that i'm in love with?
i haven't made my final decision yet, but i have narrowed it down to about three. i'll be keeping it a secret so i don't ruin the surprise when you open that envelope on that chilly December day :)
