Yes, that's me, and yes, that gun is smoking! (and yes, I missed!)
Here's my fave pic from our trip. We stopped for a quick break in the canyon (Simon got car sick. He gets that from his mom.) The view is spectacular! We drive through here so often and we rarely get to stop and appreciate the beauty the the Salt River Canyon. You cannot deny there is a God when you are gazing upon such a work of art.

This was my first big show and I loved every minute (except for the cold! I thought we lived in the desert.).
Thanks to everyone who came by and supported Cantaloupe Corner! And thanks to those who have helped me along this rollercoaster ride to get where I am. We have a lot of work ahead of us but it has been so much fun that I can't wait to see what's next!

We got this adorable "A Pirate's Night Before Christmas" book last year for the boys and I am thrilled it's Christmas story time again !
It's not sweet or sappy and it's the perfect "read-out-loud" story (Thats right, you can read it in your best scurvy pirate voice.)
Merry Christmas to all and a happy new Yarrrrgh!

I love every day of it!
This December has been busy!
Here's our month so far, in pictures.
Ryan is up and walking now and I'm so excited for him but a little depressed that my baby is now a toddler. He looks adorable walking, or stumbling, around the house. He and Simon are thoroughly enjoying their new sandbox. They spend a lot of time outside playing and fighting and playing some more. Even though there are 3 dumptrucks in the sandbox they always end up fighting over the same one. :)
We finally got out our Christmas decor and with lots of help from Jeremiah and the boys, we "decked the halls".
Simon got to help put the decorations on the tree and we left almost all of the glass ornaments in the box this year to save them from little hands knocking them down.
This is Simon's section of the tree, after we had moved some of the ornaments. He bunched them all together on two or three branches. Also, take a look at Jeremiah's Santa ornament. In his hand he's carrying. . . Frosty's head! ahh! kind of gruesome, but funny, in a Tim Burton kind of way.
We also threw and impromtu cookie decorating party with Karissa and Cabrena. Simon ate more sprinkles than made it onto the cookies. He made some beautiful sprinkle-covered trains!

They may not be as pretty, but seriously, who looks in my pantry but me and my family anyways? And these are dirt cheap if you make them yourself!
Check it out here
All you need is cardboard boxes, glue, paint and some wood! Easy Peasy!
I can't wait to make some! (Maybe I'll ask for this from my hubby for Christmas) :)
Yay for cheap food storage supplies!
