Christmas is almost here!

Okay, so I put up our Christmas tree yesterday. Turns out 9 feet is HUGE and this thing is definitely the dominating force in my living room right now! But, it looks really pretty, and I have to get a few more things for decorations tonight. Owen and Justin helped put an ornament on, and I put lighted garland along the ledge next to the tree. I also did our fireplace mantle about a week ago, so now it looks all pretty and put together!

Stupid college

This is me yelling, kicking, screaming, and throwing a fit like a two year old.
Yep,throwing a fit I am...all because of this damn class. Stupid cultural anthropology!
I have to write a paper, and the assignment is so...confusing. I can't find the information I need and I have to bs my way through a paper on a subject I have no idea how to research. All of the resources they want you to use you have to freakin pay for! I can't do that!

So I'm having a brain clog right now. Very frustrating...

Homemaker's Haven: Week Three

Okay, so I have slacked a bit, but yesterday I got my behind in gear. My goal was to organize the boys' toys in to their own bins and clean up the boys' basement room. I did it, and it looks wonderful. We also have a new addition of REAL BEDS in their room, which I think I am more excited about than they are!
I have also set up a new morning routine:
Wake up and have breakfast with Brandon
Get the kids up and fed
Read my Bible
Get dishes done
Put in some laundry

And then break for lunch! After lunch the day is pretty much a free-for-all...

I did order something to help me make my entryway more inviting, so hopefully I'll get to work on that area next week!
