kick your feet up & grab a cup of coffee

alternate titles:  life after the country music awards. counting blessings: roadside edition.  never a dull moment at its best.  god bless the good samaritans.  our nutshell life with a bowl full of nuts.

this is going downhill, so i'll stop.

would you believe that we have already enjoyed our {two} decorated christmas trees for a week and a half now?  still can. not. believe it's this time of year already!

sometimes i get the nikon out.  sometimes, the iphone camera.  but lately, it's been the video camera.  i know.  you can barely contain your excitement, right?  i have to admit... talking to the camera is a bit awkward, at times. ha.

we have a lot to catch up on via video.  feel free to put your feet up and grab that cup of coffee.  or tea.  imma tea gal myself.

{don't judge too harshly.  video is done in the worst lighting and most unflattering perspectives.  especially, the no-makeup-at-all-shots.  although, in this lighting, one can hardly tell when i do have it on.  ha!  have i ever told you that we can't see ourselves while recording?  that would explain a few headless video shots in past vlogs.  ha!}

{edit: yay! the entire video is working properly now.  due to my mad technical skillz. ha! and i also wanted to thank youtube for that ever-flattering freeze-frame. nice.} ;)

i know.  crazy, right?  i was nominated for best homeschool vlogger?  *giggle*  {thank you, sweet friend!}  i think voting ends nov 18th @ 11:59 p.m.  if you're so inclined, feel free to click on over to view all of the homeschool blog-o-sphere goodness.

and if you made it through the video, you'll be relieved to know that nator did make it to the bookstore for her much anticipated date.  dad was able to come, too! ;) 

i love that 11 year old.  11 on 11-11-11.  ;)


wishing you more moments of kicking your feet up, eating pumpkin cheesecake, yummy & delicious scents, christmas lights... and true happiness {as mentioned in the last 2 minutes of video}.  

have you unpacked christmas in your home yet?  
{pix of that to come soon} ;)


  1. That pumpkin cheesecake is the bomb! Not even kidding. Have a fabulous day! Blessings, SusanD

  2. I love this! Kei and I just watched the entire thing laughing along with you and your awesome girls. I wanna do this! You always inspire me to video but then I forget. :sighs: The mind is the first to go.

    Grats on the vlog award...headed to vote. ;)

  3. Glad you got your van fixed.

  4. So, did the hose come undone at the car wash? I felt so bad for Gracie! So glad to see from the pictures that she still got the cheesecake and book!!!

    I love the vlog! You crack me up! I think we will have a fabulous time when we someday meet!!!!

    I feel bad, A and P hardly ever do anything with email! But they still talk about Gracie and Nator...I hope someday A and P do get into email more and they can all be pen pals!

  5. You can assure your girls that we do indeed like cupcakes! : ) I'm so glad you did another Mom Taxi Chronicle!

    I hope you guys have a good weekend.
