Since it's been so cold and with all the snow on the ground, kitty will not go outside. I have to force him out the sliding door and then he'll only stay out for like 10 mins before he's meowing like he's dying. So, he's been a little bored and stir crazy inside. He's been attacking the scratching post a lot lately.
Kaeli always yawns, but here she is in front of our tree.
We haven't decorated the tree yet. I'm thinking of waiting till Christmas Eve to do it.

On Wednesday I finally made it to Trader Joes! However, I wasn't very impressed. It's a nice store, but it is pretty small. I like Whole Foods better. However, I did find Trader Joes brand Cereal Bites with Chocolate! They are soo good! I eat them as a treat and I'm completed addicted to them.
Here is a book I've been reading from the library. It's pretty interesting. I searched for this kind of book because I was curious what other books meant by saying use non-toxic cleaning products. Since I'm babysitting a lot, I want to use safe products around them and learn more about what is safe. From reading this and other books, I think companies have brainwashed us into believing we need harsh chemicals to clean so they will make money off of us.

I love that we have such a cool pumpkin patch so close (like 10 mins out of town). They have a huge corn maze (we didn't do that this year), pumpkin cannons that shoot pumpkins way far, petting zoo, food, music and of course pumpkins.
Couldn't go with out doing a little photo shoot with Wyatt. He was so interested in the pumpkins that he wouldn't look up. We put him on a hay bale too and he was super interested in the hay that we didn't get any great shots.

Here is Wyatt's 6 month picture. He is 19 pounds and 28 inches.
This is the last of my zucchini from my garden. I made some bread with it.
I have more pictures to go through still from today and yesterday, so maybe I'll get to them later today or tomorrow.

I made a new bib with a pocket. I have never sewn on a pocket before, but I think it turned out ok. And matching wash cloth wipes.
I love some of the camera straps that are sold on etsy.com. One time when I was browsing I saw a camera strap cover instead of a whole new strap. So I made one myself! It was pretty easy, took me two tries though to get it perfect.
And from this book by Lotta Jansdotter...
...I made this draft snake. Our bedroom gets cold in the winter even though the rest of the house will be warm. We aren't sure why, but I made this to help and next on my list is to make heavy curtains for the windows and door to help more.

I'm also getting ready to sell a bunch of retired Stampin' Up! stamps. I have pictures of them all now, so I will be posting about that soon. I plan on trying to sell them here first and then what doesn't sell I will sell on ebay.

He totally lets me shave his injuries down, it's funny. There would be no way he would let the vet do it there, so I do it before we go. I figured it was starting to get infected, so I took him in Monday before it got any worse. They gave me antibiotics, pain meds, and an exam bill. I think the next time this happens, if a wound starts to get infected, I'm just going to buy antibiotics from either petmeds.com or see if a local feed barn would have it in the right dosage for a cat. It seems like such a waste of my money to pay an exam fee for something that I already know he needs. It's either that or Kitty might have to move out and go live on a farm. We can't pay for vet bills every time he gets in a fight with the neighbor orange kitty. I wonder if the orange kitty has ever gets any wounds. I've never talked to the neighbor about it, I hardly ever see her.
I just looked at all posts for Kitty to see when the last time I posted about his injuries. His first bad abscess was exactly one year ago from today. That is so odd that I posted them both on the same day. I think last time I was also a little late posting about it, so that's weird.

And I got some cute shots of Wyatt there too.
Other things I'm up to right now: sewing curtains for our bedroom (it get's cold in there during the winter, we are wondering if the ceiling is insulated properly), still babysitting, dreaming of doing crafting but just haven't gotten the chance, and I can't think of anything else to add right now.

Yesterday I did some practice portraits with Kaeli at a local park. This first one was the best. The second one, she looks funny, but I did some photoshop editing just for fun.
The pracitce pictures of Kaeli were for taking some family pictures of some friends. Here is one of their shots.
I watched The Office last night. I didn't catch it all, so I'm going to watch it again online. You can watch the full episodes on NBC Video Rewind. And same with Grey's Anatomy at ABC.com & Survivor at CBS.com.

On another note, I'm excited for Thursday night to come. Two of my favorite shows are premiering.
I didn't quite get into The Office until last summer. It was always on when like Survivor was on and we would never watch it. I started watching the old episodes online and now I love the show. It's soo funny. The other show I'm waiting for is Grey's Anatomy. And I believe these two are on at the same time, so I'm so glad I can watch them online the next day!
Oh and another show I'm excited for is Survivor. It also starts Thursday. I try not to watch too much tv, but these I love. We don't have cable tv, so luckily they come through our antenna. Soon, we need to get that conversion box for when the channels go digital though.
Have a good Saturday. We are driving 2 1/2 hours to go to a wedding. One of Dan's friends is getting married.

And a story I want to remember... Dan gave me my birthday presents early this last Sunday (bicycle pants, bike rack and a pannier bag - which I'm so excited about, they all will be great). After that I went to get a popsicle out of the freezer and I saw a present wrapped with Christmas paper in there! I was so excited, but didn't even touch it. I did tell Dan I saw a Christmas present in the freezer and asked if I had to wait till Christmas to open it. We then went to dinner (at his parent's house) and came back and he said I could open my present. I took it out of the freezer and there wasn't even paper all the way around it, so I could have figured out what it was before! He must have used a scrap of paper. The present was a box of soy chocolate ice cream bars from Trader Joes. Which is neat for me, since I haven't been to one yet. The closest Trader Joes around is about 20 mins away. They opened earlier this year, but I haven't been yet. I have told Dan I want to go, but we just haven't had the time yet. So it's cute that he went there and got me something from there. I totally should have gotten a picture of the Christmas present in the freezer, but didn't think of it till the next day.

What I've been up to:
- Watching Wyatt during the week and loving it. He is 5 months old now and is pretty fun.
- Sewing and serging - my mother in-law let me borrow her serger. I've serged a couple baby wraps (to carry Wyatt around with, they are exactly like the Moby Wraps, but a ton cheaper!).
- Getting ready to go to a women's church retreat this weekend
- I finally got a basket for my bike. I'm excited since I ride to the library a lot and now can go to the store to get some groceries.
This past weekend Kaeli was a little hot from playing in the field. She cooled down by soaking in this tub. We had filled it with water just for her to drink from that day, but she decided it was her pool. This year we didn't ever get a kiddie pool for her. Last year's had a leak in it, so it went to the dump.
My parents stayed also this past weekend and they brought their new kitten, Traeger Phyllis. She is pretty cute. She loved to climb on our kitty house and run all around the house. Our kitty didn't like her at all. He stayed outside almost the whole time and was mad when he came in.
Yesterday I took some picures of Wyatt eating. He was loving his food. I got this high chair for $15 at a garage sale the other weekend. It works great.
