Holy moly, woman. You rocked it! Wow... all the planning that went into this is making my head spin. I LOVE the fireplace setup with the cutouts!!

Three unstarted and undecided, I'm afraid. Jealous of your gorgeous mountain nooks!

I honestly can't even tell you how much I hate (and consequently avoid for way too long) sewing on patches. I eventually started using fabric glue. Which, incidentally, only works if you strip off all the iron-on glue on the back of the patch. Which is just as bad as sewing them on. Which reminds me... Zach's Boy Scout uniform is still bare. Ugh.

Soooo grateful you guys are okay. And so sad you had (and still have) to go through this. I have a few everyday pictures of that yard on my computer, that I'll be sure to give you once we dig out of our own craziness. Love you all.

Z's a believer all the way. A little clueless, truthfully. And he asks me lots of detailed questions about old St. Nick (not questioning questions, just "I need to know every stinkin' detail about everything" questions... you know the kind), which I answer as vaguely as I can or just ask him what he thinks. Because I kind of think he should maybe be at the questioning stage, so that it doesn't get shocked into him one of these days. And yeah, I'm pretty sure one of his friends is going to laugh in his face either this year or next. Ah well. Growing up.

They really turned out great, K. I love the way they curl up.

So sad for your kiddos. Zach likes dogs too, big or small, jumping or no... as long as there's no barking. Barking Dogs = Freak Out City. Although he handles it better than he used to. So he's totally a cat person. P.S. We're making our plans! I'll email you, but is the first week of September good for you?

Zach spent half the day doing this on Saturday. I love your boys' suits! I haven't seen any that include the top.

We love homeschooling too. I definitely learn as much as my son does, and I'm much more interested in learning everything than I ever was in my school days. We're about to start an "explorer's logbook" that will house info, notes, drawings, photos, questions, observations, etc. about the world around us. I'm so excited!

That nursery is always at the top of my mind when decorating, for my son's room, and really for the rest of the house as well. I love it so much it hurts.

I've actually been thinking a lot about this. We are in the process of adopting right now, domestically, and will hopefully have some foster children placed with us in the coming weeks. And yes, one of my first thoughts on hearing about the Haitian crisis was how I wished I could be there to help care for those kids. And how there is going to be a huge and heartbreaking surge of orphans in need of placement. And what a mess it will all be logistically. And how the children will be homeless and parentless for years while they wait. My brother spent two years in Haiti. He knows these people personally, and so I feel like I do, too. This is one of the best ideas I've seen to really make an immediate difference... at least for a few. Thanks.

Your advent calendar is super-cute. I love that the "treats" are all activity-based... that's what we do too. We actually hide a little elf doll for my son to find, and he has a note with the day's activity on it... http://find-the-elf.blogspot.com/ I'm going to write down a couple of your ideas for future use. (Wish we could make it to Temple Square for the lights! Ah, well... there are some nice ones here too.)

Darn you. Now I have this oh-so-yummy-looking book waiting for me at the library. And an extra five pounds waiting for me at the end of the holidays. Looks like it will be worth it.

Wow... that theater looks amazing! Jealous of you all and your very fancy girl watching your fancy dancing in your fancy theater. I'm going to be getting The Nutcracker from the library and hoping I can convince one of my boys to sit down and watch it with me. The chances are not good.

Oh, yes, oh ,yes. How I love me some Little House. They're on my list of books I must reread at least every couple of years. I've just been reading the Little House Christmas Treasury, too, which just shares all the Christmas chapters in one volume. And wow, it just eases any tension right away and makes me feel so happy and so motivated to create beautiful, simple traditions for my family.

Santa brings one gift and also fills the stocking. We usually have 3-5 gifts from us as well, but this year we are just doing two... one from me, and one from my husband. We're trying to simplify and also make it more personal.

Molly! Wow. That is the best tradition, and your tags are gorgeous! I am definitely going to do this with our family scripture reading this month. Thank you!
