Mommy's Little Creatures

This year the kids dressed up like a bee and a dragon. We walked next door to my aunt and uncle's house for their first trick-or-treating experience. I think Tanner liked it. He may or may not have had a supper consisting of two bites of lasagna, a kit kat, a butter finger and a sucker. Oh well..he loved it and its only once a year.

Welcome Home

We have been living in our new house for 1 full week and are loving it. So far my mom and I have painted the kitchen, started converting a closet to an office nook and gave the bathroom a mini make-over. The house was my grandma and grandpa's house (my dad's parents) so it is in GREAT shape. It just needs to be personalized and decorated by a 28 year old rather than a 73 year old. (even though my grandma is the most "with-it" 73 year old I know). I will post before and after pics side by side once I have some more afters BUT for now here is a photo of our new place.

Side Note: Paul is in LOVE with our land. WE have 40 wooded acres that he has been busy scouting and puttng up his deer stands.

We feel so lucky to have our new house.

Blog hiatus

I have been on a blogging hiatus recently.  For one reason it is because we are very busy up here in North Country.  Paul and I close on a house tomorrow morning @ 9 30 and we have been working on that, prepping to move, etc. 

Another reason I just haven’t been blogging as much is because of my computer screen.  Tanner stepped on my laptop and put a nice crack in it.  Thank goodness I have a wide screen though because at least I have a few inches of working screen left to work with.  We are hoping to get that fixed soon.

I realized I haven’t put any pictures of our new house up and will get to that very soon.  I also have some big plans for the space so get prepared for some awesome before and after decorating pictures.  The home will be “Heidifide” by X mas.  At least that is my goal.  Gotta get my painting, construction, and sewing skills ready for these projects.

Stay tuned…

Talking up a storm

Tanner is quite the vocal little toddler.  I started writing down his vocabulary to count how many words he knew but stopped @ about 80 because the kid seems to add new words every day. 

I love love LOVE his little voice.  He reminds me everyday with his actions that he is a big boy and not a baby.  (Except for maybe when Emmy Lu is napping and he lets me cuddle and rock him).


This morning he topped the cutness charts before 7:30 am.  He gets up off my lap, walks to the fridge and says:

“Mama milk please”

which actually sounds like-

“Mama milt pee” But I knew what he meant.  He knows how to melt my heart.


I also may have created a monster who can get WHATEVER he wants from anyone.  Instead of the typical toddler whine or scream when they need help or want something, I taught Tanner how to say “Help please.”

I don’t know how many times a day he looks up with his baby blues and says “Help pee”..even if it is with something naughty or that he is not supposed to have.  Hard to resist that.
