If, Then

If you think pipe cleaners are headbands, you are going to have a collection that unknowingly fell on the back of your neck as you tried to put them on...
Then walk around for a while as they fall off slowly.

If you're checking out a tree in which you are already a little nervous about...
Then you are going to have a quick scare of death when you take one step too far in it.

If I cook us a nice breakfast that you would have gobbled up yesterday or tomorrow...
Then of course today you only want Cheerios.

If you get very frustrated the wagon won't move anymore...
Then just take a deep breath, calm down and do the next best thing - get in.

If you say, "No more pictures, ma"...
Then I will try extra hard to get one.

Pollett Secret Apple Pie Recipe Revealed

One thing I am very thankful for is that Jeremy is not a picky eater. At all.

Case in point: the other night he saw we had some canned apple filling. So naturally he wanted to make a apple pie. He found an old pie crust. And of course he wanted some type of topping, so he broke (not crushed) cinnamon graham crackers. Clever, huh? Yeah...

Oh and then he forgot about it in the oven and it burnt some of his highly-crafted graham crackers.

Does this sound like a good, homebaked apple pie to you? Well, if you're Jeremy Pollett, the answer is, "Yes, the best."

Ah, the joy of my husband. I love him.

Christmas Time!

I had not been in a very Christmas-y spirit. I think it's because we still have 80º weather and it just doesn't feel like Christmas. Honestly, I didn't really want to get the tree, do anything in the house or listen to Christmas music. I know, you can call me Scrooge and have pity on Tiny Finn.

Well, Jeremy and I have an anniversary tradition that we couldn't break. We go to dinner, then go pick out a tree and come home to decorate. This year we kinda revised it though. We still went out to dinner but we took Finn to Mrs. Nilsa's house the next day so that we could get a tree and spend the day decorating the house without a little one getting into everything.

And...I think I found the cure to breakout of the lack of Christmas spirit: even when you don't feel like it, put up the tree, decorate, blast Christmas tunes and dress like it's 32º outside  (Just kidding about the last part.)

Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth to people who enjoy his favor! Luke 2:14
