Our Latelies

We don't have a whole lot of decorating done around here.  So far we have one advent wreath on the kitchen table, one strand of garland above the tv, and one Christmas card holder of which I am extremely proud.  This little baby was the product of only about five minutes of effort and I didn't even go to Pinterest to come up with an idea for it (although granted, I'm sure its very existence is a result of my time spent on that little site).  Here it is on the mirror in our entry facing the front door:

I mean, clothespins? Clearly a Pinterespiration.

Here's the long view:

Why, hello there, headless me.

The day before Thanksgiving was our third wedding anniversary!  On the following Saturday my hubs was a groomsman in our friends' wedding and we took a picture of the two of us after the ceremony.  A picture of the two of us is rare indeed.  Evidence:

Aw. Pretty cute for an old married couple.

What you're looking at right here is a 9 month old with a broken femur:

At least he's cool enough to wear Wordsworth quotes?
I know: sad and adorable at the same time.  Poor guy.  While walking to church as we do every Sunday morning, I slipped and fell backwards.  I held him the whole time, but somehow his leg got a fracture.  It was horrible, but he has recovered beautifully and he now rolls around and tries to crawl with that big old thing on his leg.  He's a tough little dude.  

Head over to Like Mother, Like Daughter for more of life's little joys (and realities).   


  1. I love the clothespin card line! We do something like that, too, although I'm afraid I use binder clips which aren't as cute.

    Your poor little buddy. He's so cute.

  2. Well done, getting that photo. My advice is to be sure to take pics of yourself and the two of you!! You won't regret it later.
    I was so shocked at the little guy! Luckily babies are so resilient. Thanks for joining!

  3. I love the clothespin idea! I never know what to do with the ones that I can stand up. Poor little guy :( I hope he continues to recover well!
