It snowed last night! Not a whole lot, but for the Arizona desert, it's enough.

Getting Creative

I've been very busy making soaps and redecorating the Christmas tree every morning (stupid cats!). I've had a lot of left over soap so I decided I would play around a little and add more color to my soaps. I think they turned out pretty good!

I still haven't finished Christmas shopping. I've been asking the boys for months what they wanted for Christmas and they couldn't come up with anything and then they do at the last minute. My older son just decided he wanted an XBox 360 and the Halo 3 game and the other one wants a Robo Raptor and some Wii games, which they don't have at the only store in this awful little town I live in. So, I'm going to have to find time next week to go to Phoenix to shop or shop online.

Christmas Tree

We finally got our Christmas tree. It feels more like Christmas now! We put it in the archway between the living room and family room. It looked big at the store but when we got it home it was so small. The boys had fun decorating it! My youngest son made these pine cones at school and insisted that we set them on the table in the entry. So here they are:

I've been so busy the past couple of days and finally found some time to sit and relax. The sunset tonight was beautiful ~ pink clouds and all!

Our Chia Pet

My youngest son has been begging for a Chia Pet for a long time. It's so cute because he calls it a 'Chita Pet'. I finally gave in and bought him one. He had to plant it himself. It was so messy, there was seed goo everywhere. He watered it every morning and came home from school and ran right in to check on it to see if it was growing. After about a week and a half he was starting to get a little discouraged because it wasn't sprouting yet. Finally, over the weekend it started growing! He's so happy and has been showing it off to every one that has come over. He even named it Spot. I'm afraid he's going to be sad when it dies.
