Bingo Bonanza and other party games.

It was the annual family Christmas Bingo on Sunday. I had a great time. Daniel is such a sport and he does the calling and facilitating for it. We play for fun prizes like reachy-stick-grabbers and chocolate bars. We also got a $2 bill in an envelope. Fun fun! I saw some cousins I haven't seen in a long time. Fun was had by all and stuffed ourselves silly with too much food.

The whole room! We had such a good time.

Then Monday we went to Daniel's dad's family party. His dad loves to play games and he had a pretty silly one for us. They had to stuff a pair of panty hose with 10 small balloons and then put it on their head. It was pretty funny. Daniel was with his brother, Eric, for the first round and they won. The little kids had fun being silly with all the balloons.

Christmas is fun when we get to spend time with family. We are playing more games on Christmas Eve so I will post about those and our other Christmas festivities!

Cold Days and Warm Beds

With the weather getting colder (finally!) we have been sleeping in and going to bed early where possible. We have also broken one of my rules (gasp!) and have allowed the dogs on the bed. We snuggle down under the comforter with the puppies on top. Saturday turned into a literal dog pile.

I also decided i needed to snuggle a baby, but since we don't have one, I snuggled my baby dog instead. Unfortunately he smells. But he's a sweet cuddler.

Saturday morning I decided to officially  name the second bedroom the "craft cave" until such time as it needs to become a bedroom.

This is my latest thing. I saw shoes like this on pinterest, so I copied it. I love them and I can't wait until the wet weather dries up a bit so I can wear them and keep them clean.

We're doing our best to enjoy the winter days and keep ourselves active. What do you do to combat the winter blues?

Another shirt

I'm excited about this shirt. It uses the beautiful bird that Cady Driver drew for us and a quote from my favorite author, Jane Austen.

It's available in a couple different colors, long or short sleeve. 

This effort is helping me keep up hope. The holidays are harder when there are no children to share it with.. Fortunately, we have some amazing nieces and nephews. It's been a long time that we have been hoping to adopt and feeling the support of our friends, family, and strangers helps me keep my spirits up. Someday I be a mother and there is some amazing woman who will become our birth mother and hopefully be counted among our best friends. 

Will you indulge in a flight of fancy?
