Sunday Random

Today is the 2nd Sunday of Advent so we will light another candle tonight. This one for peace.

This morning we went out to a delicious breakfast at a neighborhood cafe that we just recently found. Then we headed to the store to get some lights to put on the house. Jeremy is currently outside bearing the cold to put them up for And he's doing it gladly. I'll have to take a picture when it's all done.

Here's a few random pictures of some things around our house. I've been experimenting with our camera because it does way more than I give it credit for. "Auto" works just fine for me but's been begging for us to try a different setting so this is me trying. Some are grainy and out of focus but I love them anyway.

Advent calendar

The ball of lights that I have finally been able to use this year.

Is it wrong to adore your salt and pepper shaker?

My favorite mug from my new favorite place in Astoria.
The best couch blanket...ever.

And I just couldn't resist...Sawyer was in bed and Ian was being so cute.

See the pacifier? This is toddler for 'cool'.

The four poses of Ian are as follows: 1. Cute, 2. Cool, 3. Cute, 4. Cool. Hey, that means he is cute and cool.

What wonderful pics. I have wanted an advent calendar for years now. I love yours. ;) (My mom always had one growing up.) The lighted ball pic was amazing. Just beautiful. And's completely normal to love kitchen stuff! We are women. :D LOL Thanks for always Ian is beautiful.

I like your pictures Andrea. Who is the bear? The candle and light are so pretty. I used a book on Advent to get my material for the Nursing home. Preparing for the true meaning of Christmas! P.S. Love the salt and pepper shaker too! Bonnie C

Thanks everyone!

Fred you're right although I'm glad he doesn't know he's cool yet...the bottom pose was more annoyed than anything :-).

Shelly...I think I love some of my kitchen stuff too much! LOL And I love that Advent calender too. Now I just need things to put in it for when the boys are older.

Bonnie...Thanks...the bear is their famous bear chair that Ian got when he was a baby. I'm still learning about Advent but I love it so far. It's such a great way to teach about Jesus' birth.
