New Day

It was an exciting day at church today...although we did start our yearly duty of having church at 1pm (gggrrrr) We did have some exciting changes occur also- Halle went to her first day of "Sunbeams"...this is the big kid class she is no longer in nursery..sniff sniff AND because I am in the primary (where the kids are) and Dustin teaches Sunday school they let Bennett go to Nursery!! (Usually they wait until they are 18 months old) and I can't tell you the feelings I had when I watched my tubby man sit there and enjoy snacks with the rest of the dudes in his class. Did tears well up in my eyes...no....but boy did I want them to.

On another note is anyone else hitting the "my house now feels really empty because I no longer have Christmas decor up?" Boy... I feel like we are living in a museum...empty and kind of echos when someone is screaming (yes that does happen with two kids). So now I am in desperate need of some decor ideas for blank walls....there are a couple of sites that I absolutly adore
Like her pass all the Christmas stuff and check out her decor... or how about her . I know... I have a lot of sites that I love to follow... I mean have you seen her stuff lately?? Or how about this ? I know... I could go on and on and on... anyone have any ideas to share?? I know a bunch of you have recently moved into newer homes so maybe we are in the same boat? If anything I know I am going to hit up the new HomeGoods store opening up down the street and Kirklands very soon. Any other ideas? Do please share!

Change was treating you right yesterday! I loved those decorator blogs... I noticed a theme of birds. You must like birds! Home Goods & Kirklands are 2 of my favorites... can't wait to have Home Goods in our neighborhood!

I agree with you 100%, my house feels so empty and cold with the Christmas stuff gone. And - where is the homegoods opening? What a GREAT place to shop!

I just told Kjetil how our house looks so empty now. I miss the Christmas tree but I decided to leave up some of the other small trees and snowflakes. It is helping with the loss I feel for my Christmas decor!
