Getting the tree

We went up into the foothills a few weeks ago to cut down our tree. It's now up but I can't find my camera so I'll have to take pictures later. It's small but it fits our room perfectly.

Our little tree hugger. She found a tree just her size.

Kaylin took this one. Budding photographer.

some not so recent pics

Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving. I meant to post this awhile ago, but never got around to it.
The kids table at Thanksgiving. (Karen was hoping that by getting married that she would be allowed to move to the "adult" table. I guess not. Maybe you're only allowed at the adult's table when you've had kids.

Letting lose (sorry not from Thanksgiving but I thought it was cute)

Feeling productive...or not

I've realized that I tend to feel unproductive just because the house is a mess, the laundry isn't put away and the dishes are still in the sink. So I am reminding myself on here, as a visual, that I have been somewhat productive and that I don't need to feel like a bad mother/wife (and so that maybe some of you can relate).

Today I:
  • paid bills
  • went grocery shopping
  • did a load of laundry
  • watered the plants in the front

Okay so maybe it's not a huge list, but if I added all the motherly things on there, like making meals, changing diapers, dressing, playing, nursing, etc. then maybe it would look more impressive. But that's the everyday stuff. Why does it always feel like there's so much to do and that I can never get ahead of it all? Ahh, that's life I guess.
