The kids wrote Christmas thank you notes the week after Christmas. I'm big into thank you notes. Now they are, too. I love that. 

Spoiled much?? Corey came downstairs early one morning this week and found Marley sound asleep... stretched out on the couch. She used to always sleep upstairs, but she hasn't been for a couple weeks. Now we know why.

Someone was playing in Mommy's jewelry the other day. She came downstairs wearing my two favorite necklaces. She already has good taste.

Mommy was desperate for a little peace and quiet a couple weekends ago. It was cold, cold, cold outside.

Oreo pops! Thank you, Pinterest!

These cute little organizer bins are at Wal-Mart for $2! And I only bought one. Corey should be proud of me.

Corey started this project one Saturday. Pulled out all the Tupperware... started trying to match up lids... then left it for me to finish. We now have organized Tupperware. (actually cheap Gladware/Ziploc)

You might have too many Pop Tarts if you feel the need to organize them. Or maybe it's just more fun to pull them out of a cute basket.

Someone finally decided to try ice cream! And she likes it! Crazy baby. We've been trying to get her to eat it for over a year. Sherbet is her favorite... she's her momma's girl.

Miss Carrie gave me this cute red tray and button magnets for Christmas. I LOVE it! It's hanging on the side of one of our kitchen cabinets, being used right now for our meal list. Two of these are Pinterest meals... and they may have been pinned by my husband. (He's discovered the awesomeness of Pinterest and may have been ridiculed by several of his friends on Facebook because of it.)  =)
The kids both told me... at different times... that what I should do is write the meal we are having on the day that we are having it! Isn't that a great idea?! =) Unfortunately, this momma isn't organized enough for that. This is how I meal plan... just a list of 7-10 meals that will last us close to 2 weeks. Every Friday is pizza/movie night.

Miss Carrie is leaving me. I'm so very sad. Not just me... but all her families she cleans for. I love coming home to a clean house every other week. Tuesday's just won't be as happy anymore.
