turkey time!!

Oh, my my my. Who ever decided to sell turkeys frozen needs to be severely punished!! Since I started thawing my turkey, I've made a wreath for the door and a tablecloth for dinner on Thursday. I've also eaten enough knock-off Reese's peanut butter and watched enough TLC to last me a lifetime... and the dang bird is STILL FROZEN! I'm just saying, it better all be worth it or we're just gonna order pizza next year.

my wreath... it's kinda boring, but I like it that way.

my tablecloth - conveniently folded so it looks 100% done  :)

Aaaanyway... Since I've got sine time on my hands, I think I'll tell you what else I've been up to recently...

My momma came to visit us a few weekends ago! It was super great to have her in the Burg with us. Especially when it snowed on Saturday and she had to suffer like John and I do! haha. But while she was here we went to eat at Smitty's Pancake and Steak House in Idaho Falls. John was in HEAVEN because he got to have ribs with a side of pancakes! It was a pretty great experience... but I'm a fan of anywhere that serves pancakes 24/7. We also went to get some fabric for the Woodbury x-mas pajamas. I'll be starting up on those shortly... so stay tuned.

My cousins had a little baby boy on 11/11/11! So I made a little gift for him. I forgot to take a picture of the onesie, but just imagine a polka-dot bow tie and this pacifier on a little smoochie face :)

felt + hot glue = awesomeness.

Sometimes I just use the pictures on my phone to remember what we've been up to... I realize that's sort if lame, but it's the truth. Unfortunately I haven't been taking as many pictures as I used to. Let's blame work, ok? Because it's most definitely NOT that I'm too lazy to pull my phone out of my pocket... But here's one to leave you with - while Momma H was here John convinced her to buy this hat for him, and then I stole it :)

i didn't really steal it.  he just left it in my car.

(and keep your fingers crossed that my turkey dinner doesn't poison anyone!)

near death.

Yesterday on the way home from the temple, John and I saw a sign outside G's Dairy for "hot chocolate floats".  And at that moment, as our teeth were chattering from the cold, hot chocolate sounded fantastic.  And a scoop of delicious ice cream in there with it?  Even better.  So we turned around and ordered two of them.  John got Rocky Road ice cream in his and I chose something wonderful with Oreos and cookie dough.  And since we were too excited to try them to wait until we got home, we pulled out of the drive-thru window and straight into a parking spot.  Oh my, was it a heavenly treat!

Unfortunately, my dear husband accidentally inhaled a shard of almond and had a horrible coughing attack.  It was the kind of thing where I started to just laugh [because I think it's funny when other people do that instead of me] but then I got really worried because he was coughing a LOT and turning a little bit red and had a panic-stricken look on his face.  And then he stopped coughing and I started laughing AGAIN.  I'm such a kind and concerned wife...

The best part of that whole experience was that he didn't get one drop of chocolate on his church clothes.  Score!!
