This stresses me out because I try but the beasts keep me to busy to get anything done.
I have laundry and packing to be done, I wanted to go get my nails done tonight and I have two boys living in my home....
I feel overwhelmed stressed out and not festive at all this morning:-(
I need a slap in the face, or someone to clean my house:-) Teehee

I still have not gotten Cody's Christmas gift! Eeek so I'm on the search for that with only one day (tomorrow) off between now and Christmas. And Codys home tomorrow which complicates things a bit
Cameron is moving in with us this weekend for a couple weeks because, well lets say the people he lives with are odd:-P Yeah for two boys and two puppies keeping my house a mess
Tonight is Cody's families Christmas party and I'm going alone because he is at work... duh duh duh ha
The puppy honestly has demon in him and I am compleatly exhausted from trying to keep up with him. I could have a baby and it would be less work
Codys on a 48:-( Which means I miss him!
I have to work Sunday:-/
Wednesday we are spending Christmas eve with Codys family than driving up really late to Hume and spending the weekend with my fam:-) So excited everyone is coming home!
It's almost Christmas!!!!
Happy Holidays World!

I got excited about my $1 Christmas napkins and found use for our star cookie cutters!
Christmas touch to the candle tray, simple but I like it:-) We had to use fake snow since I miss having the real thing!
I found the best greenery smelling reed diffuser at Pier 1:-) It actually smells close to the real thing! And I got some cute mercury glass things. I could have everything in my house mercury Glass but it might be a little much:-) Ha
These are our stocking! Last year we bought each other stockings and now I'm trying to decide if I should keep these? Or if I should get cute matching ones? Hmmm help me out!
I also hung a ton of glittery snow flakes in the window, added a red blanket to the couch, a red and white stripped rug and Cody painted our coffee table red for the Christmas season! Over all everything came together nicely and our home feels just like Christmas:-) What a wonderful first year together!

The girls got cat puppets and took pictures with Santa. It was such a fun little town to be in.
We headed back to the cabin and me and Cody took a nap! Haha we are old people. Than we all headed off to the town theater to see Cinderlla the play. Me and Rylee enjoyed it the most I think:-) The boys laughed a lot and seemed to find it very funny....
On Sunday Cody got up early, built us a fire & made us all coffee before taking the girls fishing. Rylee caught her very first fish and was very proud of herself! The big girls stayed home and cleaned the cabin and packed up. When everyone got back we ran to the Alpine slides and had a lot of fun until Kevin crashed with Rylee and they both came away pretty banged up:-( Rylee split her lip open and burned her chin and hand. Kevin hurt his arm pretty bad and got some burns as well as tearing his pants... it made the afternoon not seem as fun. We were thankful that was all that happened though it could have been much worse. And having a experianced EMT around made the parents less stressed to the handed Rylee to Cody and said Do something haha... I felt bad for Kevin he was really upset about hurting Rylee. It could have happened to anyone thoughWe headed back down the mountain and shopped at Bass Pro Shops for a couple hours than Grandpa treated us all to dinner at the amazing restraunt! We had so much fun and cant wait for the next time we get to all go away together!What a blessing to have two amazing families:-)

We were using the bottom shelf of this rack in our kitchen to store all our bigger kitchen appliances like blenders and crock pots. It didn't look very good so I made this curtain to cover it all up:-)I also made a curtain to cover our TV stand so I dont have to see the player or the stack of Friends dvds I have not put away:-) I'm happy with the way it turned out. I like the green.

I love having a home to decorate and sadly it's small enough if I stand on one side I cant even get the other half of the house in the picture so I will just have to keep sshowing you bits and peaces of what I'm up to:-) Hope you enjoyed... I know it's nothing creative like you might see on Anna or Heathers blog but hey we can't all be like that;-) teehee

One of the greatest things about Castle Rock is that it is right in the middle of everything! On Sunday we drove up to Boulder and saw that gorgeous town. (Probably my favorite) And some surrounding areas like Longmont, which Cody was a fan of, not as much college town feel. We walked through Pearl Street Mall and shopped around a while. Me and Cody got some Christmas ornaments from here to continue the tradition my family has to get new ones on each vacation! Than we went back and drove through Parker, saw where all the Broncos live and had dinner at Texas Road House.
(There was actually a game on Sunday and we drove past the stadium. The place was huge and completely packed! Every where you went people where wearing Broncos jerseys. It was fun to see EVERYONE getting into the spirit.)
Monday morning me and Cody got up early and borrowed their truck (another huge blessing!) And drove into Golden for his test. He went in at 8:30 and came out at 12:15! I walked through a super Target and Boarders as well as drove through some of the homes to see the town. Golden is well named because the place is packed with aspen trees and this time of year they are…yep golden! It was beautiful.
I will let you know how things go.
One last silly thing. This is the huge blue Bronco that you see when going into the Denver air port (Which getting to the airport and through it is a whole other story!) anyways a man designed this for the air port and while he was out stting it up it fell over and killed him! For reals, now when you see this thing at night your not surprised, his eyes glow red and he looks evil enough to kill anyone! What some people think is cool I tell ya....
