Let's do a little science fair project & see if Tat really reads this blog.
He claims he does, but a lot of times I refer to certain posts & he has no idea what I'm talking about.
So here goes:
Dear Tat...I mean Santa,
I'm a girl of simple requests.
The least high maintenance of any females to ever walk the planet.
I can get by with the bare minimums & rarely ask for anything that is not a necessity.
(remember when you suggested i don't use the dishwasher b/c it cost something like 36 cents every time i ran it? or remember when we didn't really use the furnace until children came along? or remember when you suggested we put our first child in an apple crate to save money on a crib?
fortunately i put my foot down on that one.)
I usually try to subtly drop hints when there is something that's caught my fancy.
But short of smoke signals & a marching band, I'm not sure what else to do to drop Christmas wishlist clues.
I've been trying to subliminally tell you for several months now about what I want for Christmas & you look at me with a sweet little dumbfounded look every time I bring it up.
that look like you're trying to pretend to know what I'm talking about,
but then you walk away & I see you scratching your head look?
Yeah, that one.
& do you remember the time I flat out told you EXACTLY what I wanted & where to buy it & how much it was going to set you back...
& then you looked up from the TV & said,
"What? Can you repeat that?"
Well, here's your last chance for clue-dropping & if you're ordering it on-line & would like it to be here by the Merry holiday, then hop to.
I want the letter "A" in the
Square Stamped Initial Charm
& the letter "L" in the
Round Stamped Initial Charm.
You can order these puppies from HIP&HUMBLE.
(i know, can you get more wasatch county than a name like that?)
Don't worry about a chain b/c I want to find a sassy long one myself.
Peace, Love, & Joy for the Holidays,

I assume you think I'm going to brag about this little cherub...
organizing my cupboards
organizing my drawers
baking 4 batches of cookies, 1 apple crisp, & 1 pie
(not to mention cooking dinner)
helped tat put up some shelves in the garage & organized all my laundry & cleaning supplies
(this pic is only the 1st shelf...there's now another one)
washing & folding laundry daily
organizing Tat's, mine, Avy, & Lincoln's dresser drawers & closets
making my bed & cleaning my room every day
scrubbed both my bathrooms...twice
hemmed Avy's curtains
vacuumed & wiped down all our blinds
What didn't I take pictures of?
her vacuuming (multiple times)
her organizing my food storage in the garage
all the meals she prepared
all the playing with Avy & Lincoln
Thanks for making the last week & a half so enjoyable, Mom!
We love You!

I love to indulge every now & then. So I do.
Some friends & I got this wild hair to sneak away one more night before the little fella arrives.
Another overnighter, or shall I say, stay up all hours of the nighter up in beautiful San Francisco.
(clearly I didn't take this pic)
There's always SOME spice to the night.
2008- Sarah puked all night
July 2009- well, may I refer you to THIS POST
This trip- We got off the elevator & smelled a STRONG aroma of skunk.
We were at the Westin Market Street, so there should be no rodents cruising the halls.
At the same time, the 2 unsheltered frineds say, "SKUNK WEED!"
The 2 sheltered friends look at each other, me being one of them, & say, "What's that?"
Anywho, come to find out, the whole floor wreaks of crap thanks to some serious partyers smoking some potent stuff.
In true Heather fashion, the front desk is immediately notified of the situation & we are immediately granted a room change several floors away & can begin the night of excitement.
the mad-dash as soon as Amen was said
no food for the tots...just running from "the ghost" all night
story time with old st. tat
the dutch-ovened mac & cheese & the rice krispie treats were all Avy needed for happiness.
Good picks ashby's & teuschers!
