so i've really been getting into making my own gifts this year. i sound nerdy. thats ok. i love it! ha! at first i was a little worried about making my own. the boys mom seems a little materialistic. and i was worried she wouldn't appreciate our gifts. but then i talked to my mom (my hero). she made me feel better and i thought, "i'm going to do this" i know how hard i worked on these gifts. and they are turning out sooo cute! i love them! and i was talking to my sister (my other hero) about the craftyness too. i told her if she didn't like what she got she could have coal in her stocking next year! ha, and she didn't want coal :) and to give the creativity a little boost, i joined this class! i'm so excited for it to begin. i can't wait! we just got a post of our supplies for the next 2 weeks. wow, we're going to be doing so much. it will be fun. now if i can keep my ideas straight. :) i keep getting new ones, and as soon as i start on one thing, another pops up. and my attention span? forget it. its tiny. i can never do the same thing for very long, lol. *sigh* so frustrating some days! not much to say. my camera is still with my sister :( so not alot of pretty stuff to look at. (i do have some cute sky photos that i don't think i've posted before though :)) my christmas collection of presents for the family is actually growing, for the gifts that i won't be making. thats exciting. i usually have to wait til the last minute to do that stuff. (i'm not the greatest with money, i'm still working on budgeting :)) so far though its been going good. which is awesome, bc i love looking for those unique and lovely gifts. love it! well here's to a fabulous fall that we had this year. so many beautiful colors! <3 and now to wait for the snow and cold. i don't mind the snow. i hate being cold. he he. xoxo des *can't wait to meet everyone!* *elsiecake*

ahhh, today i plan for a good day. sundays are the best. and today i have plans. yay! i've been very inspired lately. so i'm very excited to see what i get done. the very best part? it's thundering out! my favorite! rain storms and creative*ness, oh yes :D creative? yes, i thought i'd try out doing something lovely with my hair. i liked it a lot. i couldn't get any good photos of it inside, so i asked the boy to take some outside. i felt silly asking him, why i don't know.but he did a good job. this one is my fave.its also that time again when i need to take kira's pictures. the home photo

(in my lovely forever21 dress!)aww! so cute! i loves them! they had their reception at a place called the Dorf Haus.it was such a lovely place. with a gazebo and garden and little pond in the back. it was very nice.summer lovin. just chillin around the house. lots of that going on.lol! i love this one! we like to do our make up together! :) its soo cute. she has make up all over her eyes. which she is very proud of! and did herself. randomness...this girl as of late has been my hero. loving her art. checking it out and getting inspired. which i NEED! its almost been 3 months and i haven't hardly scrapped! oh i miss thee! oh well i have plenty else to show for my time.and this lovely. i drove for like 10 minutes trying to find the perfect spot to take this. i heart. and i always think of this lovely girl. when i see pretty sky photos. another great stop of inspo for me. :) have a happy weekend. xoxo.

hmm, where does the time go? it is summertime. the girls are always wanting to go swimming. It is where I've spent most of my summer, thus far. I don't mind actually. Swimming is actually good exersise! ha! Yes, I am still trying to keep up with my exersizing. One more thing that has been consuming my time :) And...drum roll please.... I have lost 10 pounds! Another 10 and I will have meet my goal! I am so excited!!(this is kira, who is 3. she loves to swim and put on her *soup, soup* <3) another reason for blog withdrawal? this girl. she practically lives with us :) that's Jakan. the boys youngest sister. in case you wonder? jesse is 25. Jakan is 9. He is the oldest, she is the youngest. And there are 3 more boys inbetween them, ages 10, 14, and 16. She is, the only girl. No worries. She is very welcome to come and play and swim anytime. Which leaves plenty of opportunity for silliness... and sweetness... Not much else has happened. Just living summer life out I guess. Swimming, running (who knew it was so much work! i do enjoy it though), bike riding, walking, lots of working, and...i've begun to enjoy reading again. lol, i want to finish what i'm reading! right now i'm reading 'The Pillars of the Earth' recommended by my mom and sister. another reason for getting sidetracked with the blog. and sadly, scrapbooking too. hopefully the dry spell is over! ha! Oh! and speaking of this lovely, we tried on wedding dresses about 2 weeks ago. sooo much fun! I miss hanging out with her so much! we've talking on and off lately and she really gets my blood going! in a good way of course. talking about the wedding and all the fun stuff, photo shoots, scrapping, cooking and healthy eating. *sigh* so inspiring. <3 ok, thats it for today. I hope to be back soon!
