'bout time...

If you've ever watched the movie, The One & Only Genuine Original Family Band, then you'll know where I got the title to my post. If not, then, sad for you (I love that movie. I've said it once and I'll say it again).

Anyway, so, it's been a while since I've posted, no?

Welcome to the mothah-load. I'll do some brief updating, because we've been busy busy busy. You see, remember how we are welcoming a child in a matter of WEEKS, people? Yeah, so that means I'm burning the midnight oil getting things accomplished over here.

And, when you are busy creating things, de-cluttering, laundering, decorating, practicing up for the ward Christmas party (yes, Aaron and I are playing a piano duet), doing stationery orders, etc.---well, the blog has taken a back seat, that's all. We'll get all caught up soon. Don't you stress out, okay? Good.

*Halloween was great. Matilda was as cute as ever dressed up as a teddy bear. Don't worry, I got the costume last year for $2.99 at the Children's Place Outlet and I'm so glad I did. Yes, I am a proud bargain shopper. I love me a good deal. Here she is so cute (oh, this was the try-on day, with no long sleeved shirt under... so she looks a little "red-neck-ish-ghetto-fabulous". but you get the drift).

*This is what Aaron was for Halloween. Facebook. Get it. If you watched "The Office" episode the night before, like we did, then you'll see where we got the idea. I think Aaron's smile is pretty funny in this one. I can see him pulling the same face in 5th grade.

*Our sweet little friend, Dylan, had a birthday party so we made him some dinosaur stationery and a little tote bag (rumor has it he may want to be a paleontologist when he grows up).

*And, this one is to show Matilda's love for not ONE but TWO sippy cups. She likes variety.

*We went to the Zoo with the Jessop family when the boy's had a day off from school. Let's just say this... Tillie loved it! It was a ton of fun watching her and the kids see the animals. I still have my issues with zoo's, and don't love that they cage up animals (I'm scarred from an experience at a Chinese zoo where they had the panda bears in chains and shackles)... but I do like the chance to see such crazy cool animals up close.

We also rode the train around the park. That was lovely too. Here we are waiting for the train.

* My mom came into town for a SUPER quick trip to help me BLITZ the craft room into a baby room. We did all the beginning pieces and I can't believe how much I was able to PURGE (old school work, art pieces, you name it...), and after she left we had a garage sale with our friends. Aaron and I made out with over $200 when all was said and done (craigslist sales included) ?!?! Who knew?!
That was cool. And, makes me excited to get rid of more! Here are some pictures with my mom and her FAVORITE grand-daughter (ok, maybe she's the ONLY granddaughter, but who's asking?).
p.s. I'll post pictures of our handiwork AFTER it is decorated. Right now it's just drab.

* And now on to the most exciting news as of late. Look at what I found one morning as I was pouring some Kellog's Corn Flakes into my cereal! I screamed aloud, "Tillie, we've struck GOLD!" It was like an early Christmas miracle. Look at the size of that FLAKE!

See, momentous occasions really DO happen on regular, ordinary, boring mornings.
The proof is here.

Nice. So, there you have it.
That's what we've been up to, as of late.

Lily used to carry around two sippy cups too. One for milk and one for water. She had to have both options. Tillie is going to make the most adorable big sister! Can't wait to meet the cowboy!
