I ordered this from KozyPal Cart Covers before Christmas. I absolutely love it and it is made to fit inside both the standard buggy and the bigger carts too (Costco, Sam's) as well as the wooden high chairs at restaurants. That little front pouch is where I stick my phone and lists and there is another pouch inside for a juice cup. It also comes with a place to attach links for toys. I compared it to others and it is so full and padded that I have laid Benjamin down cross-ways and he has napped in it quite comfortably! The fabric choices are about endless but I settled for the one you see in the picture.
The Playmobil Nativity is my favorite Christmas decoration for 2008. I wanted it the previous year but couldn't find it. When I saw it at Toys-R-Us after Thanksgiving I was sure to grab it. Samuel loved that his Playmobil pirates could exchange
I love this Johnson's Soothing Naturals Balm for my baby and his sweet cheeks! My friend, Kelly (super-chick & with-it mom who always has the matching shoes) told me about it and ever since, I have stalked Target waiting for them to get more in. I keep a small stash so I can give it to new momma's. I will tell you that if you have a baby with ultra-sensitive skin, it does have a fragrance (that smells heavenly!) just in case that might irritate them.
I don't love running in below freezing temps. 40 degrees is near perfection, but I'd take 30+ any ol' day.
If I must.
I will run in my beloved Under Armour tights. It is not
I made this with Samuel before Christmas using a piece of flat canvas and ribbon. I had all sorts of good plans to write more about Christmas and then all of a sudden! Christmas was over! It was January!
Since it passed so quickly, I decided to leave our tree up into January, so we could bask in the sentiment of our heartfelt decor just a bit longer.
Or. I have procrastinated the chore and now I am thinking of moving out.
We loved making our Jesse Tree and reading the daily devotions leading up to Christmas Day. Because I came by this idea a little late into the season, we really just threw together a daily craft to complete the ornament. This fall, I would love to participate in a group effort where we make a wide assortment of ornaments and everyone goes home with a completed set.
Here are links with more information: Rocks In My Dryer wrote about it here & here and linked to it, here.
Ann Voskamp from Holy Experience has this book and I find her words to be some of the most soothing yet convicting I have ever read apart from bible. Her blog is on my sidebar.
Oh, how I love my pencil. I have wanted it from the first time I saw it two years ago. It was entirely too expensive and really not practical at the time because we did not have a room dedicated to school.
Then. Pottery Barn offered free shipping on every. single. thing. they carry (except furniture) and ... AND my beloved pencil was on sale, to boot!
Can anyone spot the camera-shy child?
I love watching my boy do new things. In Upwards basketball, the kids run out of the "tunnel" through a cloud of smoke with the music blaring and the announcer calling their name, just like the NBA! Since Sam was at the back of the line, he had plenty of time to get his nerves worked up real good.
Later, he told his daddy that it was fun but his legs were kind of shaking together.
He's the one in the doorway
I love my Christmas present from The Vintage Pearl.
One more thing I love? That makes me laugh and cry on the inside?
My boy and his precious voice saying the words, "Mary and Joe-Fuss".
Ya'll, it leaves me undone.
