Miscellany Monday

sharing is not always caring

{one} It seems Sweet Bean will share just about anything these days---including her cold! Now the Hubs and I are both a sneezing sniffling mess and trying our darnedest to kick this bothersome bug before Thursday!

{two} Don't forget to get your pictures and post ready, tomorrow is our second installment of Home Tour Tuesday! Tomorrow's theme- 2 things around the house you're thankful for (besides the kids and your spouse).

{three} GG's teething...again! This weekend was a mixture of skipped naps, cuddling, and out of nowhere, temper tantrums! But the good news is, we all survived, no worse for the wear. And, fingers crossed, we are nearing an end to this round of teething. At best estimate, I've counted at least  four new teething setting up residence in Gillian Grace's mouth, poor baby! Teething is stressful, and Sweet Bean's crib has the gnaw marks to prove it!

{It goes without saying, but this is NOT Gillian Grace}

{four} Giveaway, giveaway, giveaway! Melissa from Two Little Tots is giving away a $25 store credit to her online shop. Melissa sells all sorts of handmade goodies for momma and child. All comments on today's post will automatically be entered to win, it's that easy! But for an extra entry, swing by Melissa's shop and leave a separate comment telling me about something that catches your eye!

{five} Thanks to my bloggy (turned real-world) friend, Laura, Gillian Grace is going to look super festive this Christmas in her custom made red, green, and white tutu! I honestly don't know how Laura finds the time to make anything with her busy household of four (soon to be five) kiddos, but I'm sure glad she decided to surprise us with this one! Now any ideas for a family Christmas card? After reading so many cute ideas, I'm seriously drawing a blank when it comes to something original!

Hmm! Anything else in here?!

Hope your Monday is off to a great start! And, let the countdown to Turkey Day begin!

Cute tutu! I'll be you that she loves that empty box as much as she loves any Christmas gift this year. ;)

I hope y'all get better soon! I hate having colds, I feel like the girls don't get over them for WEEKS when they get them! Ugh!

P.S. I did get the balloons from Polka Dot Market, but I got them for FREE, when I won your giveaway that you hosted earlier this year. Heehee. I also won the "1" hat too. I'm giving you a little shout-out in the post tomorrow too. :) THANKS!!

Mama K said...

I completely understand the "teething tantrums!" W got 2 new teeth last week and more are to come soon!

GG's new tu-tu is tu-tu cute!! Love it! I don't know how she finds time either, but she does!

Poor GG and the dreaded stage of teething! Thank goodness we personally don't remember those stages! My heart just breaks for her! Poor thing!!

Have a great Monday!

Madison caught the nastiest cold ever and I've been taking Zicam and it's working so far! Go grab some and I hope you feeling better by Turkey Day!!!

Jennifer said...

Oh gosh! That tutu is just too ADORABLE!!!! So cute!

Hope you're all feeling better soon!

Jennifer said...

I think it just that time ot year...sniffles are starting here too :) As far as teething, I am not sure the end is near for us yet. Don't forget that they get 2 year molars too. Anthony has been out of sorts because of it too this week. So know that we are in the same boat. I am loving that little tutu. I think it would look great with those little red shoes from Target :)

That picture you used for the teething baby is hilarious! I am sorry you all had a rough weekend (yet, you still managed to get your work done!) Superwoman, you are! I hope everyone gets back on track soon.

Oh, putting your buttons on my blog :)

we were just talking about how disgusting Owen is when he sneezes and coughs all over us. LOL. we still love him and love that he shares- just would like him to be selfish every once in a while!

Cool Gal said...
