Happy New Year

I love omelets. I think I make them at least three times a week. And now that I am home for Christmas break, I am sleeping in later and making them for brunch. Harbor isn't crazy about them, but he likes the tomatoes. Yesterday morning, we both enjoyed them for a late lunch.

This is my parents' exercise room- well, it used to be. Harbor's things have slowly started creeping in, and now that my mom keeps him during the day while we work, he has become the king of this domain. With his recent birthday and Christmas, he has played nonstop with new toys. It is nice to have a room dedicated to the madness.

 Last night, Rachel and her roommate, Ashley, stopped by to visit. Harbor enjoyed being read to by someone other than my mom and me.

This is a picture of Harbor William from David's side of the family's Christmas. It is a bit overexposed, but he has such a funny little smile!
 My good friend Brandy recently helped me with a big project, and as a thank you, I whipped up some custom cards for her family during Harbor's afternoon nap. It is always fun to design colorful cards, and with my Big bite and Cricut, my work has been made much easier.

I feel so blessed- and lucky tonight. In the wee hours of this morning, a deadly storm hit our area. Not 20 minutes down the road from our house, an E4 tornado touched down and killed several people. Please say a prayer for the people of my area- many folks have lost property and livestock. Tonight, they even covered my area on ABC News. Such a sad way to end 2010. If you are a praying person, keep us on your heart.

Be safe and ring in the New Year in a big way! Here's to 2011!


  1. AWE!!!! I love them!! you're the bomb digity! I love you always and forever! (and it wasnt that big of a project!) you're so dang creative!

  2. Happy New Year Jessica! I am glad to hear you are all ok. I was up early this morning watching the local news and feeling grateful that Benton county didn't get those storms. So sorry for all those folks near you.

  3. These are adorable! Which cricut do you have? I'm actually thinking of getting one this year. One of my goals this year is to get my crafts organized so I can do more of them. This has been on my 'wish list' for awhile. LOL

    I am thankful to hear you are ok, although sad to hear of your neighboring town. I saw the news earlier and my prayers and thoughts went to you.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Love the cards and the omelet looks delicious!! I am praying for the people that live in your area!

  5. I love the new blog design!! And I'm obsessed with omelets too, but I'm terrible at making them!

  6. I too feel very blessed. We live about 2 miles from Cincinnati....we actually live on Cincinnati Road. It is so very tragic. Mr Wilson always had a little road side veggie stand and a pretty little garden. Going with your spouse would be the best I guess. Mr Murray is a dairy farmer. He and his son were milking cows and for some reason Mr Murray walked out the front door of the barn, they think he was going to check his wife across the street, the tornado got him. I am still in shock over it all. This is our neighborhood and to see it destroyed like this is really hard. Knowing it could have been us is even harder. Greg was just over at a fellow chicken farmers house the night of the storm.....he is the one that lost 4 of his chicken houses. We lost electric for most of the day but our chickens are fine and most importantly......we came away with our lives and a very BIG life lesson.
