My Secret Admirer

I remember watching my grandmother unwrap a large pile of presents on Christmas day. Each one was from either Santa or Your Secret Admirer. Why was Santa still brining my grandmother presents? Didn't he know that she was too old? She must still be sending him letters. How else would he know exactly what to get her?

Tonight I got a call from my husband. "I am getting you some things. Do not buy yourself anything this year." I could have acted indignant. Shocked. Hurt. But who am I kidding? Once I was let in on my grandmother's secret, there was no going back. I have added my own twist on things tho. Not only do gifts appear under the tree from Santa but so do gift from my small children. All I can say is this: my kids have fantastic taste. They always know the perfect gift. In a few short years I will have to go back to getting gifts exclusively from Santa once my youngest is old enough to want to pick out his own presents.

This is my dirty little Christmas secret. Please leave a comment and share yours. Or, a comment telling me what a horribly selfish mother I have turned into! Whatever!

Halloween Pictures

I wrote a whole long post about carving pumpkins with the kids, our Halloween activities, etc.  For whatever reason, I was unable to upload pictures so I just saved the draft.  I tried again the next day with the exact same results.  Now the entire post seems dated and boring.  So you're just getting pictures.

Incase you missed it

Hee Haw Farms is located in Pleasant Grove, UT (just a hop, skip, and a jump from my house).  We went there this year for pictures, a corn maze, and various other activities.  Anyway, they do a pumpkin drop every year.  Here's the video:

I am pretty sick right now, which should explain all of these short posts lately.  Hopefully I will be back to sewing soon and will be able to show you all of the projects I was working on before I got sick!
