Happy official holiday season! I hope everyone had a fabulous day of turkey and pie. (And how could it not be fabulous with both turkey and pie?)

The Hub, Bub, and I took a quick trip to Sac a few days before and visited Gramma and a few tiny friends too. Much drooling, nuknuk stealing and friendly eye poking took place. (With the babies, NOT Gramma!)

Then on my birthday the little spud gave me a pretty cool present. He rolled from his belly to his back four times! He's done it about three times since, but it still isn't a constant yet. Thank heavens, that is a whole new realm of baby proofing. Yikes.

Tag, I'm It!

I have been tagged by fellow new mom and blogger the Cheesefairy for my first ever meme-ish thingy! I feel like a tiny (and sticky) strand in the gigantic international web of mommyblogs! I'm getting a bit weepy. It is my first ever non-relative blog linking!

Alrighty, the meme is a get to know you type thing, wherein I am to 'fess up to five things that you may not know about me. (Ummm... sis, bro-in-law, and dad, you don't count, sorry.)

1. I am an obnoxious drunk. Yep, if you want to experience a tiny woman being alternately loud, offensive, combative and then inappropriately flirty, get me drunk. It is not a pretty sight. And relatively easy too, since I don't drink often, and therefore have no tolerance what so ever. Nice huh? You really want to invite me to your next get together, don't you?

2. I am allergic to chocolate. It gives me those horrible blinded-by-seeing-spots kind of migraine headaches. The allergy, however, does not apply to white chocolate.

3. The only famous people I have crushes on are women. The Hub is okay with this.

4. I was a pom-pom girl briefly in high school. Our squad was bad. Really bad. We did (er...attempted to do) dance routines to such blockbuster hits as Smokin' In The Boys Room. Mostly we would get off count, and then we'd stand around looking at each other in silent panic in the middle of the football field. Painful. We were not cheerleaders. No, they were much cooler. And better. We were the geeky, awkward, and uncoordinated cheerleader rejects. Then I became a punk rocker, and haven't looked back since. Thank heavens.

5. I don't really like pina coladas OR getting caught in the rain. Fruit smoothies and snow? 'Nother story entirely!

And now with my magic fairy wand of blog I tag Robbyblog, Ms.Kathleen, and Karellypants. Hop to it kids!

Good Thing I Like Hockey

A while ago I mentioned that babies had really cool comb-overs. I would like to amend that sentiment now in light of his current 'do...

If I Do Say So Myself

For those of you who are not nearly as addicted to blog reading as I am, you might not have heard that this month is NaBloPoMo, wherein dedicated participants try, with all their mighty might, to do a blog post each and every day of the month of November. Now you might have noticed that I am decidedly not participating in this event. I am, however, reaping the time-wasting benefits. So that is where I have been dear friends not necessarily keeping up with the Joneses, just keeping up with reading about them. (And of course reading all the election punditry! Whee!) Thank heavens this doesn't happen all the time, or I'd never get anything done.

Little Mister NibbleKnuckles, however, does not read (nor vote!) yet, so this is what he's been doing...
Discovering his toes...

Practicing his elbow propping...

And sorta kinda attempting to sit up. (Good cucamonga, I love that little red hoodie on him!)

Just though y'all could use a dose of cute this weekend! Have fun!

No Time For The Felt Spaceship...

Because I am a big geek, I get really excited about Halloween every year. This year was no different, I started making our family themed costumes months in advance. Then I sort of realized that we had nowhere to go, and no reason to dress up, and sort of junked the whole idea.

Until 24 hours before the big day. Then a neighbor mentioned that there is a kids carnival (in the animal stables) at the local fairgrounds. (Yes, we are rather rural!) So I hauled out all the junk I'd been working on and did the best I could. So if I look like a demented sparkly Mennonite instead Jane Jetson that is why. And I was really hoping to have time to give myself a Jane-ish bouffant hairstyle, but was too busy sewing the stripes on George Jetson's shirt, so I sort of rolled out the door without the slightest bouf in my fant. But Elroy came out pretty dang cute, I think. And he's all that really matters. So without further ado, The (Halfassed) Jetsons...

Create Your Own!

The Hub Is A Goofball

Jackson has learned many new talents in the last few weeks, sucking his thumb, rolling up onto his side, etc. The most endearing of them however, is his ability to giggle maniacally...
