You may have noticed that my blog has a new title. If you don't care to know why I changed the title please feel free to skip to the pictures below. When I created this blog a few years ago I wanted it to have a creative and catchy name. Since I could not come up with anything I settled for "To dream costs nothing" in Latin. Don't make fun of me, I took Latin in college. Anyway. The other night we came home from Thanksgiving at my parents house. We pulled into the garage and I had a flash back of growing up. Whenever we came home from a vacation (usually late at night) as we pulled in the garage my dad would say "you know the routine guys" which meant we all helped unload the car until every last thing was in the house. We would sit in the back of the car, whether it be station wagon or Astro Van, and silently pray that he would NOT say it this time. No such luck. Over the last few years my life has become pretty routine. And so has my blog. So there you have it. You're welcome.
A week before Thanksgiving Emily Brown came for a visit. Andrea was pretty sick, but she is doing better now. We had fun and Syd LOVED her. Emily was the best playmate ever:)
One day I was telling Emily about all of the great stuff we get from our neighbors trash. She was intrigued and sure enough on Sunday night someone had put out these trees. She snatched them up and took them home with her:)
On Wed. we all headed to St. George for Thanksgiving. I was too tired to take pictures, but it pretty much looked like this.
Italian seasoning on every cutting board we have. Later she dumped parmesan cheese on the floor. I guess she wanted to make spaghetti.
Cinnamon toast crunch on dirty dishes. At least the bowls match the plates. That means she is super brilliant, right?
Our friends have a Christmas tree farm in Ca. and got us this amazing tree. It smells SO GOOD. It has been quite a few years since I have had a real tree at Christmas, it is fun!
Grandma sent Syd this little people nativity. She loves it! I told her grandma sent her a present and she sang happy birthday for the rest of the night. And yes, I realize that I have very few pictures of her wearing both pants AND a shirt. Oh well.
