They've placed him on antibiotics (and Savannah as well) and breathing treatments ... so this week will be all about the babies in the house and taking care of them. Movies, popcorn and rest for all of us ... not a bad way to spend a week. :)

- school teachers
- church teachers
- family & extended family too
- the co-worker gift exchange that your husband loves to sign up for every year (even though you tell him not to each year & he agrees ... only to casually mention afterwards that he did anyways, ha!)
- his employees
- his bosses (definitely can't leave them out!)
- the people in church that you've been assigned to home & visit teach (all 8 families)
Then the list is BIG (and still doesn't even include your kids or husband!), and now you're looking at your ever expanding belly & the three kids already here and starting to think maybe you are nuts. Is it just me that this happened to?
And then I noticed that Deseret Book was having a 75% off sale, with free shipping and for a little over $100 (with free shipping on that order mind you!), I decided handmade is nice ... but consumerism/the easy way out was better (this year). And since I *know* you'd all *LOVE* to see what $100 bought me, I'll show you the stack of delivered boxes .... (10 animal nativities, 10 fleece blankets, 8 "Our Home Believes" blocks, 8 Jesus is the Reason for the Season statues & 2 holy family statues - so cute, I wish I had known!-), Their customer service section sucked though & some of the items that came didn't match the picture on-line, and the best part was for some reason they didn't put in basic information (like how many were available) into their system, so a lot of my order wasn't filled. I love what I got, but after the headache to get it, I don't think I'll use them again. Maybe next year (2010) will be the handmade year ...

So I'm supposed to nominate seven others, so here goes:
Mati- Seriously her quilting rocks & I just love her funny sense of humor too.
Lisa - She comes up with the most amazing ideas! And she is the sweetest person I know.
Amanda Jean - I think she has probably already gotten this, like ten times over. But she has taught me so much thru the quilt alongs ... she rocks! :)
Lera - She has a family to care for and still manages to be an awesome momma & sew too! Such an inspiration.
She Does Hair - Seriously girls! I know everybody is always asking me about my daughter's cute hair ... and I've also been surprised at how many other Momma's already read & will mention they remember that hair-do from her blog, fabulous! :)
Old School Acres - She does amazing things with felt, her owls are to die for fabulous ... and she actually motivated me to try some stitching ... and I love it! :)
Inspireco - I am sure that most of these gals have already received this nomination & she's no exception. I love her huge heart and fantastic & funky ideas! She always presents such eye candy thru each blog post and I always walk away wondering how she comes up with it all!
