I may have to reconsider changing my bio on the side of this blog. Domestic Goddess Failure - Ha!
These last few weeks the Huey household has been acting like a pilot episode for Better Homes and Gardens.
I was looking everywhere for a trestle table but at a child's height level, I got lots of options, but none that were perfect. We cruised around the furniture stores but still found nothing. Mr H arrived home with some wood from Man Heaven and as the weather was poor he decided to make me a table - in the lounge room. Aside from having some liquid nails now permanently on our carpet the table came up perfectly. Really, who minds a bit of sawdust surrounding them as they relax and watch telly when you get the table of your dreams.
With the table now in use I have been helping the girls get festive, with the help of some printable writing paper (free from PickleBums) they wrote out their letters to Santa for us to post today. Plus some cutting and snipping here to make little decorations which we have hang around.
|Immy actually drew Santa a picture of himself first. See his hat and beard? Sure you do.|
|Popps went with the niceties first. Then the one thing on her list, cut out red love hearts and filled the envelope.|
On top of that, I have even baked - Gluten and Dairy Free Cupcakes.
In other news, these are on my shit list. Betts Kids is often my go to place for the girls when they need new shoes (which is about every six weeks lately) I am a little annoyed to see high heels, from size 8 - which is basically from about two and a half years old - now on the shelves. Really, who buys these and what must such things do for the development of little feet and minds. So I walked out and got the summer sandals elsewhere.
