Pierced Ears

A couple of weeks ago I dragged DD Brianna to the mall to look at some clothing stores. She totally hates shopping! After two stores she was begging me to go home! As we were walking out I saw an ear piercing I asked Brianna if she would like to get her ears pierced! Her answer was "not today, maybe later!". I asked her a few times over the next week and her answer was always the same! So Friday afternoon out of the blue she tells me she wants to get her ears pierced now (like a Princess!). So we wait a few hours and I ask her again and she still wants to get them pierced. So I explain to her it is going to hurt....kind of like getting a shot at the doctors. She is still up for it! So we go to the mall and she chooses out pink princess sparkley earrings (of course). She did great when they actually pierced them! She didn't even whine and just cried a single tear. She thought she looked great with her new earrings!! When we got home that night before bed she wanted to take them out so they wouldn't get lost when she was sleeping! So I explained to her that she couldn't take them out for a while. She said well what am I going to do when I eat?! I don't want to spill on them!!! Such a princess!


I have been so into painting lately! I talked poor Justin into cutting out all the wood for me. I looked totally pathetic trying to use the saw and almost cutting off my fingers! So he finally gave in and just cut it out for me. Here are the little Christmas decorations I have made:

The little snowmen here are supposed to be ice skating....they have little wire skates on their feet!

These are the interchangeable lids for my cookie jar! This is the rabbit holding a birthday cupcake:


So this week it was my birthday! My DH Justin, decided to make me a birthday cake with some help from my good friend Nettie! She made the cake and Justin decorated it. To decorate it Justin used two cans on frosting, four tubes of frosting (red, yellow, green and blue), a bag of peppermint patties, a bag of reeses peanut butter cups, a bag of fruit marshmellows, rolos and a bag of peanut butter chocolate chips! You couldn't even slice the poor cake! He topped it all off with some black candles!
