Crafty Mama

I've been busy! As always it seems.

Anyway, I guess since I have all boys I have this craving for cute girl things.

So, I've been making all kinds of bows, headbands, tutus, all kinds of cute girlie stuff lately, I'm hoping to be able to sell at the Tiki Hut. If not, I guess I'll just hit up the internet and compete with the rest of the world. I swear some day I'll have a girl.

We got a new dog! We named her Bell. It's weird because I was trying to come up with names with Carson and asked him if he liked Bell, of course he gave me no answer. Typical Carson, he doesn't say much. Anyway, long story short, hubby came home with her and said, "I have a name for the dog, it's Bell." All I could think was, shut up! You can't be serious? How weird is that?

And the reason for getting Bell is because we got rid of Grady. How awful, I know. I never thought I could just get rid of a dog. But, honestly I felt sorry for him. I didn't really like him. He stunk, even freshly bathed, he was hairy and shed really bad, he drooled a lot so if he rubbed up next to you he would get you wet, gross. Jackson was kind of scared of him since he was big, he would knock him down or try to take his food, chew his toys, and all that. Poor dog. Anyway, Brandon knew someone who wanted him and so he finally just let them have him. He's staying with some girl in Tennessee! Brandon says he is staying inside and she just loves him! We kept him outside, always! She even kept his name! I do have to say though, he was really smart, never messed up in the house and never tried to runaway. But that's about it, so he's gone, and hopefully happier too.

I'm 26 weeks pregnant now! No new pics yet. I'm a slacker, I'll get to it soon, hopefully. I feel bigger though, baby moves all the time and sometimes it really hurts! Last weekend Brandon was away fishing and I swear I was having contractions, the fake ones I guess. Still scary, painful and I thought I was dying alone, lol. Only 3 more months left!

I gave in and bought Carson the movie Tinkerbell. He got a free lunchbox with it and my God the child loves it. He also wears hot pink Dora band-aids, loves shopping, Christmas decorations and decorating. He's the closest thing to a girl I'll ever have, it seems.

Jackson is my little mannish man. He likes to watch football, doesn't mind getting dirty, unlike his brother, he also isn't as sensitive as Carson. He'll be the one to drive a truck and Carson a car.

Oh I got dressed the other morning wearing leggings and boots, which I rarely do. I'm usually a bluejeans and simple shirt kinda girl. No one dresses up around here. For God sakes we live in the boondocks and if we dress up, people look at you like, "Where the hell are you going?" Anyway, with all that said, Carson saw me and was like, "Wow, look at you mama, I like it, I like your boots and your shirt." While turning a circle around me and rubbing my outfit. That child is going to be such a ladies man, that or, God bless him, gay. I love you Carson.

My boys are totally opposites. But, they love each other and really seem like best friends. Whatever one does, the other is right behind. I'm seriously going to have my hands full, but I know I'll love it.

Don't let this sweet face fool you ;) He can get evil. Especially in Walmart, where I think I can only return to if I start taking Xanax, or something of the sort.

Carson's signature pose, hands on hips.

Jackson was soaked from playing on the bounce house!

Jackson helping keep the plants watered for daddy. He was loving it!! And did such a good job.

I randomly made this one night, had a craving for chocolate at like 9pm. I mixed a few recipes I had and oh my goodness this was the BEST chocolate pie EVER. I will have to post a recipe when I compile all my ingredients I used off the different sites I used together myself. Yum. Still haven't gone to the fair yet, btw. Going on Sunday!

Carson decorating his tree in the garage he HAD to pull out. He even put a present under it. I have another pic with him literally posing with it. He is proud.

Tiki Hut with it mums and pumpkins.


Side view.

Road view. With all our signs and of course Jackson not far from Mama.

Our bouncy house with the Tiki Hut.

I swear it looks like I'm re-giving birth to Jackson, weird. But I thought he looked cute on the deflated bounce house. We were having fun!

Carson climbing around on the deflated castle too! (Notice the lunchbox!)

I found them like this once. Sitting all by their self, so quiet. Then I realized they were eating starburst out of the Tinkerbell lunchbox.

The Tiki Hut all mummified!

Oh my. I love him.

Jackson in my room, reading. Sweet boy!

Our new miss Bell :)

Jackson, Daddy, Bell, and Carson.

Our house all mummified. And a mattress. It's supposed to look as if someone was murdered. Yes, we wanted to freak out our neighbors. And everyone thought we got TP'd. :) And yes, it's still up. Whatever, we're celebrating Halloweeeen! The kids love it.

Okay so I'm off to go attempt to make a tutu, while relaxing on my bed with my sweet boys while they watch Nemo.


  1. LOVE your mummified house! HAHA!

    So what is The Tiki Hut??

    Your pie looks delicious!

    CUTE NEW PUP!!!!

    I'm definitely a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I need help learning how to dress up, lol. What a little Sweetie Pie Carson was to say that to his Mama!

  2. HAHA! Me too!! It's rained a few times and it's still up!

    My husband built a Tiki Hut and has it set up at a thrift shop basically in the lawn part of their parking lot. We basically just work the whole outside of the place. We have seasonal stuff, like right now we just sell pumpkins, mums, hay bales and produce. He farms so during the summer it was like a produce stand. And after Thanksgiving we're selling Christmas trees! It's a good little "job" for me since I'm technically a stay-at-home mom .. but lately I feel like I have a full time job AND still drag the kids with me! It's good to get out though!

    And that pie WAS delicious! As soon as I make another one I'm going to write down the recipe as I go, that way I can write it up on here. It's actually easy!

    And the puppy .. well let's just say she is cute, but geeez I clean up enough pee as it is with a 3 year old with accidents (or just missing the toilet) and my 1 year old! WOW the pee! LOL. I'm trying to keep her outside! :)

    And girl I need help too, believe me. When I do dress up I feel like I look silly. But it's so cute when he notices I look different and he'll say "wow!" or something :)

  3. How cool is that!! I wish I had something like that to do. Now I get why you were saying you could sell some of the stuff you make there. YOU TOTALLY SHOULD!!! I'm busy enough with being a stay at home mom too, but it definitely is always nice to get out of the house, I agree! I'd love to sell pumpkins and stuff. :)

    Yeah, remember to write the recipe down next time so I can make it too!

    I loathe dog pee. I use to have 2 chihuahuas that peed in the house all the time. UCK!!!

    Haha, I know exactly how you feel! I feel like I look silly too. :)
