Getting to look a lot like Christmas!

 


So it's the first year that our boys are big enough not to do something silly with any holiday decorations so we decided we can go ahead and decorate!
....and then the problems began.
"Look mom it's Christmas!"
You can't really tell from this picture but the Christmas tree that we purchased on clearance last year ended up being a half tree. Here is how it came out the box to our surprise!
Half tree=sad kid
 
 
 
Since we purchased it on clearance last year, there really wasn't any way to return the thing.  We have it push in the corner, the boys seem to like it better now then when it came out the box.
Oh the joys, Oh the joys...and it's still November.

Goodbye Couch

So do you remember our posts about our special couch?

Nope well here's the link: http://n43rd.blogspot.com/2012/02/stuffing.html

Its been a long time and the cheap couch has had a very nice long life but after years of wear and tear by young kids, and neglect by busy parents(us) our couch started to look a lot like this:


Poor couch
It had stains that won't come out, the zipper is separating from the seams from repeated washings, the stuffing is flat is most of the arm cushions...all in all it's had its hey day in our home.  This week we posted a craiglist ad and within a few hour our precious couch had a new home.
