Shopping season is here

Today, I offically started my Christmas shopping.  I found these really cute things for Davis' preshool teachers & just had to get them.  It's handpainted & personalized, so I wanted to get my order in sooner rather than later!  I won't share what they are just in case they are readers of my oh, so popular blog! HAHA
I wanted to share a super buy I got at Kohl's on Halloween Day.  First, you must know I love love things that are in 3s.  Whether it be 3 little snowmen, 3 Easter eggs, or this cute door sign w/ 3 little pumpkins.  I love the 3s b/c it represents Davis, Danny, & me.  I'd love a way to add a little something to it to represent baby Sam.  Maybe a small little pumpkin I can hot glue to it??  If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to pass them on.

I think I'm finally starting to figure this blogging thing out.  I have created a logo thingy that will appear in the address bar when you visit my blog.  It's really neat.  I now have to figure out how to load it to the page.  I'm noticing (thanks to Google Analytics) that I'm receiving more & more visitors.  WELCOME!  I'd love to hear your comments  & feel free to be a stalker (follower)!  
Yesterday, Danny painted our foyer.  I have this decorating idea in my head.  It involves of painting the walls an ice like blue & adding chocolate browns in the room.  We're getting hardwood floor in the next few weeks, so we need to get this painting show on the road.  Danny finished the foyer & was ready to move on to the hall, when I announced I hated the color.  It's a pretty blue, just not for my living room.  It looks more like something you'd have in a baby's room.  So, back to the drawing board.  I did find a nice area rug today that had the blue I'm looking for in it.  Wish me luck!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year! Chris and I are using our date-night this Friday to do Luke's Bday/Christmas shopping...we like to do as much as we can for him in one fell-swoop so we don't have to spend any more time away from him then necessary :-)
