**Attention** Subject matter of this post is NOT for Children, but pictures are viewable by anyone!!** (Some of us still believe in Santa after all!)

We have friends who own a Santa suit and asked us to do a switcharoo with them on playing Santa and coming to their house. So Cortney dressed up and went to their house last week, and then they dressed up and came to ours last night! It was AWESOME!

So we had Cort's sister whose in town from AZ and a sister who lives local come over with their kids (although a few couldn't make it)...and magically after they were at our house for 5 minutes, the doorbell rings and everyone is wondering who it is! When I open it, Kyler and Brayden were standing right by me and were so shocked to see Santa standing at our door.

It was priceless. Meanwhile, little cousin Ashlyn looked half terrified/half shocked/half excited yet not really excited to see Santa. Again, priceless.

So all the kids took turns sitting on Santa's lap, except Ashlyn who talked to him from afar through her mother, and accepted a candy cane from him ;)

To my surprise, Keaton was not afraid of Santa at all! He loved him!

Ashlyn with her mom...
Cousin Kallin who really warmed up to Santa and was laughing with him!

My three boys! Although Keaton wouldn't look up for a picture because he was so excited to get a candy cane!!

It was an awesome, amazing experience that was more special than I could have imagined!

We are so excited for Christmas tomorrow!! Merry Christmas everyone!

There are many things this holiday season that has brought me cheer. Mostly, it's family and friends, our health and all the many wonderful things we are blessed with.

But I must also give a shout out to a few fun new things I have recently been blessed with:

Here in Utah, these headbands are all the rage- they are warm and fashionable! I'm in Love!

And this one I wear like every other day (and you can too at

This FABULOUS purse! I have never owned such a stylish, fun and well made purse before! I got this for hosting a party (again, a party OR just buy one!!
This fabulous accessory to go with the purse (I know, you know where to go by now, but I must tell you how much I love my friend's stuff!! (

My wallet has never been so organized or thin...EVER!

This fabulous wreath! Can you believe my little sis made this?!?! She saw it on some do it yourself blog, read how to, and when we were in AZ, we sat down to make these bad boys and a kagillion things came up, so she ended up making three of these! One for me, one for her, and one for my other sis. Can you believe? i LOVE it!

And how can I not put in this adorable little babe of mine! I love winter hats on boys! My cutie pie is growing up so fast!

As the song says "These are a few of my favorite things"...

My hubs and I LOVE the show Castle. It's witty and funny and interesting...anyhow, the lead "detectives" in the tv show are Castle (who's actually a novelist following the detective for a book he's writing, but is actually really good at helping her solve cases), and Beckett, who is the leading lady and detective. Anyhoo....

So last night I had a dream that Cortney and I were really good friends with them and that we were following them around on their cases and helping out. (So weird, I know). So Castle is trying to help a girl escape from a place where she works but is actually secretly abusing her/threatening her. So I actually see Castle push what I thought was a person down to their death. I went right to Beckett and told her, and she and I went to investigate. It was very Mission Impossible/James Bond/every detective show you watch-ish. It was awesome. I didn't have a gun, but boy was I SO COOL! Anyhow, after some secret detective exploring done on my part, and Beckett seeing Castle actually rescuing this girl, the case is all put together, the bad guys are caught and Castle DID NOT push someone to their death after-all. It was very weird, very cool and very funny all at the same time.

I love dreaming. I dream pretty much every night, mostly really weird ones. All very vivid and real. Sometimes while I am dreaming I can figure out that I am dreaming and change my dreams around a little. It's pretty cool.

So there you go.

WHOA Peoples!

So friends, family, everyone...I am currently offering a stinkin' killer deal with my business.

I have learned from doing my second boutique and shopping around that #1, my prices are too low (I know, I am sorry to have to raise them but the cost of fabric has gone up AND everyone else sells covered wipey cases WITHOUT a pouch for $15-18...), So I am raising my prices from $15 to $18-$20 depending on the case...SORRY....But its still so worth it, I promise! ;)
And #2, House Parties are the way to go. They are smaller, but free (no paying for a booth/spot), AND you get people coming for exactly your product and/or to check it out, not checking out a thousand other products from other vendors as well.

So Boutiques are great, but I do better with house parties.

SOOOOOOO Book your party now! When you host a party at your house, you get a wipey case for FREE. That's right folks, FREE. So tell your friends and family, especially pregnant ones all about how fun and fabulous my covered wipey cases are- and how convenient it is to have diapers and wipes together in one grab. I can't tell you how many people have told me that now that they have their wipey clutch, they can never go back to searching through their purse for diapers and a wipes case. They are fab.

Oh and did I mention the fun new fabrics and designs I currently have? I have several new and wonderful designs that I will have posted on my site soon...but let me tempt you by telling you about them now because they are so incredible!!

Anyhow, thats enough from me. Book your party, get your wipey clutch, have some fun, girls night out.

Check me out...
