Our Blessed Nest

I needed to make a quick project for our front entryway because I had nothing to put on it after the Christmas Decorations were put away! Im sure with more time I could have made it nicer, and I'll probably take it down and fix it or make something else and have it there in the meantime, but I thought I'd show it because its my first project for the family that I used my christmas present (cricut) for. Love love Love my cricut!!! Im working on the Relief Society bulletin board and have been able to use the Cricut and it makes it look so much nicer and I don't have to go searching for Chipboard letters or draw on stencils....its awesome!
I used a vintage graphic of the nest from (love her) she seriously has some great images you can use for fun projects...and just used an online photo program to add text (
I couldn't find an image that had a nest with a momma and daddy bird, so I cut out birds with the cricut and added them to the image and voila! our little family. For the time being it gets the job done.

I love our little nest, we are truly blessed!!! :)

Haircuts, Bananas, Sweet Potatoes and Smiles....

Here's some pics from our first week in 2010!

Briggy's hair has been getting really shaggy. We have been procrastinating on taking him to the kids haircut place because it costs $20! I was nervous about having Tom cut Briggy's hair with his buzzer...but Tom convinced me to give it a try..and it worked out well--

Briggy before the haircut:

Brigham after! He looks older with the shorter hair! My little guys is going to be TWO next month, ai carumba.

Oliver started off the week with Bananas, and ended the week with sweet potatoes! Both went really well. I couldn't get him to eat rice cereal, but so far with the fruits and veggies he's doing I can sneak the rice in now when I mix them. Im hoping he'll love avocado as much as Briggy did...thats on the menu this coming week--just waiting for it to ripen!!

Nursing + food = Happy Ollie!
