No Christmas Tree, No Christmas Tree...

Yesterday we put away the Christmas decorations.  Here's where the tree used to live:

Ahhh, much better.  I feel like I lost ten pounds.
(At least something made me feel like I lost ten pounds because it certainly hasn't been that bitchy scale lately.)

I'm ready for Spring!

J informed me yesterday that it is not yet Spring like I wish to think, but instead just became Winter.
I thought that comment was totally unnecessary.
"Winter-shminter!", that's what I have to say about that.
(WHERE THE CRAP DO YOU PUT COMMAS WHEN YOU ARE DEALING WITH QUOTATION MARKS????!!!  I can never remember.  Is there a 4th grade English teacher in the house?)

Last year I told you how much I dread the gray days of this season so this year I plan to just skip over it completely.

I am going to embrace the colors I've surrounded myself with and move on to cleaning and organizing this place.

On a different note, today BabyCakes is wearing what might be my favorite pillowcase dress from Grandma yet.  I bought this dino fabric to make a curtain for BigBoy's room but decided it was a little babyish for the long run so I gave it and a ribbon to her and asked her if she could work her magic.

She made this dress for BabyCakes and adorable pajamas for BigBoy (I'll try to get a picture).

I love that it is unconventional subject matter for a girls print and the red/orange/teal/lime colors are awesome.

Ok, back to the cleaning.  I'm teaching BabyCakes and BigBoy how to clean the baseboards.  

Hehe, they're so lucky I'm their mom.
