Throwback Thursday

Dear Miss T,

I recently went to a baby shower for this lovely lady (she and I are fitting entire plums into our mouths at the moment...because a few years previous she was with me when I first discovered what plums were and that I liked them!). It is pretty fun that she and I will each have a baby girl as of January 2014. We are so excited. Already planning for them to be college roommates like we were.

At any rate, at her baby shower I ran into another friend from high school.  She introduced me to her two daughters. They were sitting together eating snacks.

I said to the eldest girl "Are you two friends?"

She looked at me like I was crazy. She firmly said. "No. We are SISTERS."

All the better, don't you think? Why be friends when you can be sisters? I wonder if you would have said something similar when we were little? My inclination is to think yes. ;)

Love, Kk

PS: Came across these gems too. I share them for amusement purposes only.
This is the by far the best we ever achieved.
 This comes in second place. Only because we have Troy Bolton doing tricks with us. Headstands is a pretty standard skill thanks to Sweet Liberty.
And this...well this is just a sample of the creative process behind all tricks. It's a work in progress. I think we will yet figure out how to make a table with our legs one day.

Where's the Shirt?


Have you seen those little onesie that say "Baby's First Christmas"?

I love them.

This year I went to go find one for Little Grizzly.  It will be his first Christmas, and I am so excited.  As I shopped through baby clothes, I noticed that all of the "Baby's First Christmas" shirts were in the sizes of Newborn to 6 months.  There were NO outfits in the size 12 months!!!! (which is Little Grizzly's size).

What about those babies born December 26th through March?  They haven't had a first Christmas yet!  

Now, if I was really into it.  I am sure I could go on Pinterest and fine a cute way to make my own little onesie.  But, lately I have had a huge Pinterest flop.  The last project I found from Pinterest failed twice.

Enough about me.  Go out and buy one for your sweet Baby J and take picture of her in it for me.

This is the Reason for the Seaon

Hi Kallene,

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving despite missing our families dearly.  As we headed home with our bellies stuffed with turkey, Big D and I talked about how people seem to rush into Christmas.  They can't wait to get out the decorations and get going. 

Not that we don't love Christmas, we just weren't feeling it yet.  This morning I found the this video on Facebook.  It brought tears to my eyes.  

This is the reason for the season.  I am ready for Christmas now.  Let's get it on. 

I can't wait to feel the Spirit and worship my Savior this month by showing love and kindness to those around me.

Merry Christmas!

-Miss T
