The first big thing in January was that I went to the Florida Super Jam. I already wrote about that though so I won't bore you.
Then we went on a cruise. We booked a 5 day cruise to celebrate Calvin being potty trained! Because if you are potty trained you get to go in Camp Carnival and Mommy doesn't have to hold you all day. But guess what? I never ordered my copy of Calvin's Birth Certificate. Didn't realize that until two days before the cruise. As we left on a holiday there was NO chance I could get one. Super stinky bummer, especially as, for months, we had been telling him "If you can go in potty you get to go on cruise ship!" and then, "We are going on cruise ship in X number of days." I felt HORRIBLE. I almost stayed home with him. But that's just silly. So off to my mom's he went. Which is probably good anyhow, he got to super bond with her and my Step-Father more. They had a great time. :)
here are cruise pics:

Did you know I am also a balloon artist? I mean in addition to being a mommy, teaching a Sunday School class and occasionally making cards.
Well I am. Last week I went to a HUGE Balloon Jam. (think convention) I learned tons of new twists and figures, some awesome tricks with balloons, one magic trick and lots of business info. I also met some of the coolest people ON THE EARTH.
Here are some pics!
|Ken Stillman Super Hero. Ken is a super balloon celebrity by the way.|
|Me and Bauldy the Clown of youtube fame. I actually totally geeked out of meeting him.|
|Jerry Crab. He's a clown and balloon artist. He taught me my favorite trick "tearing a balloon".|
|Dale Campbell teaching his famous baby seal figure.|
|I can't remember who made this Tardis, but it is awesome sauce.|
|Sanders' Nyan cat. He made this huge thing in response to my "what kind of fast cat do you make?"|

December flew by. We went to a bunch of parties, including one where I made this peppermint cake:
As busy as December was, we expect January to be even more so. Just wait for that update, I'll try to take a bunch of photos.

It is for a sketch type challenge. I love this particular sketch and Paper Smooches is one of my favorite stamp companies. I had to get right up and give it a try.
And this is what I made:
And that is that. I will be posting soon with my December update.

This first pic isn't actually from this month, but it was in the November file on my computer and it's stinking adorable:
Brian traveled. Boring.
I did a thing on Facebook where I put what I was thankful for every day. More than half of them were about sleep. I value sleep so much more highly than I used to. I wish Calvin did too.
I finally went to Chamblins book Mine here in town and I hated it. It was huge and all, but so much more expensive than I'm used to paying for used books. I also went to the Friends of the Library book sale and that was AWESOME. Cleaned up there.
I borrowed Napolian Dynamite to show the boys and to give it another chance for myself. Didn't even get through it, that is the most boring movie I've ever seen. I mean really, why do people like it. I truly abhor it.
Ethan is watching me type and he is amazed at how fast I type. I am just about out of content, but I want to keep typing so he can keep being amazed at me.
Oh my friend Laura came down from SC where she moved. We went to a party and the Hunger Games premier with a bunch of friends. We dressed up like people from the movie and all, super, silly fun.
Started a book club. We are reading Garden Spells as our first book. It's awesome, I've read it before, but I'm happy to read it again.
I loved the mid season finale of Walking Dead. I was kinda hoping they killed off Carl though. I bet he is the psychopath who is doing crap to rats. I get a sketchy feeling about that kid.
Well, I rekon that's all I've got for this month, more stuff happened but I can't remember it all.
