hair cuts, family, and fall

Well I am about 30 weeks now and feeling it! I am so excited for this little munchkin :) I think Brody is too. He is so sweet with little babes and I think he will be with our new addition too. I am LOVING this fall feeling weather this week, so much that I got out all my fall decorations today! I don't think I would be quite so excited if I wasn't so large ;)

As much as I would love to say that this happens often, it simply doesn't! It is so hard to get my boys to get haircuts! Derek would like it more often of course, but always seems to ask at the most inconvenient times! Ha...he will love this. And my little Brody boy just cant stand those clippers, and it drives me nuts! I feel so anal about his hair and want him to love getting it done, but he simply doesn't like it! I have now been giving him an option, do you want a hat or gel in your hair? This has been A LOT easier!

Our little sleeping guy...

Family is the best!

So I have to share one of my favorite things about my little family. Keep in mind, we are not perfect, we have our spats, and we don't always agree. But, I love how we love to be together. I truly enjoy Derek's company, and I think he enjoys mine. We are social bugs, but we also love being together as a family. I l-o-v-e this.

and one more mushy thing....I have a CRUSH on him!

And our little boy who is all boy!

So I just wanted to post a few little projects that I have been working on and say thank you to my sweet mom! I have been bugging her for months now saying that I wanted a sewing machine and that I wouldn't mind having my grandma's old one....And then...Wala~ A brand new one showed up on my doorstep! Thank you so much mom, and I won't let you down! This was my first project on it......

A cute little pillow for the rocking chair :]

And I saw this cute little thing on a blog of a frame with the baby's ultrasound pic in it... Mine didn't turn out as cute but o-well :)

Then my cute friend rochelle gave me these UGLY candle holders....and with a little paint and some green candles, I think they will be fab!!

And then some more work for my cute, fabulous, patient husband! I sure have been asking him to do a lot lately, and he is always more that willing :] Here is him working away on this next project I did :) I made these little wall hangings for the babe's room as well :)

Staying Busy....

So a few little things we have been up to....

I have been giving Derek so many projects lately, and wa-la, they get finished!~~~ Here is a rocking chair I found at a yard sale...

And the finished product....with a little antiquing as well! Love it! And a little magnet board I made for the little girls' room :)

And another board I made for my kitchen :)

And of course ...couponing....Crazy but got all this for $3.86 with a $2.00 coupon---like paying $1.86!!! Not too shabby!
