Essential Oils

One of my girlfriends introduced me to essential oils and I am quite taken with the idea so I ordered a diffuser and some oils. I wasn't sure what brand to go with so I did a lot of Googling and settled on Native American Nutitionals because they has some good online reviews and because I am not a huge fan of MLMs (doTerra and Young Living).  We will see how it goes!  I am very excited!

I made another monster and I am not loving the fabric I picked for its body. Not my favorite because of that but I like how the mouth turned out. 

And speaking of snarls, check out Keira's new angry / frustrated face. She scrunches her nose, sticks out her tongue, and breathes heavily. It's hilarious. 

And because it is too is a picture of Keira watching Chase play iPad.  She is in love with her big brother.

What should you do when your family has the plague and it is snowing outside?

Take funny pictures in hats of course!

I went downstairs this evening and Chase looked at me and in the sweetest voice asked "mommy why have you been crying?"  We had to explain that I hadn't been crying and that I was just sick. Later while B was taking Chase up to bed Chase said "I hope mommy doesn't go blah..." and B asked what that meant and Chase said "you know die". Apparently I look bad enough that I look like I may blah.  I did start a course of Tamiflu today so hopefully by tomorrow I will be on the mend. 

Six year olds - always good for a laugh.

Off To A Rocky Start

Dear 2014, 
Starting the year sick was not in my plans.  Please take this virus/fever elsewhere. 

Sincerely, K
