Christmas is All Around


Ever since Thanksgiving we've been busy preparing our little abode for Christmas and the new baby to follow soon after. Last night, Tyler agreed to put the lights up outside, if I would agree to make him hot butterscotch. Deal. We now have a freezer full of hot butterscotch concentrate, and multicolored Christmas lights all over our apartment. On Monday, I made my first wreath ever. It wasn't too hard thanks to a post-Thanksgiving sale at Jo Ann and my new handy dandy $1.99 hot glue gun. Then, later that night, it snowed! Mack was amazed and even caught a little on his tongue, but from the way he acted you would have thought it was snowing salt.
Not quite as exciting as snow: On Monday night, the cradle we'd ordered FINALLY arrived. I think it's a good investment, since Mack is still in the crib and probably will be for quite some time. Plus, Mack grew out of my Mom's bassinet so fast, I didn't think it was wise to spend any money on one. We'd originally ordered this thing back in October, to make a long story short, several vendors and manufacturing delays later, it finally turned up and I love it!

The final tidbit of news is that my Mom has started a family blog. It's called The Porterfield Perplexer. Rumor has it my Dad and Karly may soon be joining in on the fun and posting on the blog too. Welcome to the world of blogging Mom!

I love the cradle! It's still hard for me to believe my babies are having babies. I'll stop before I get sappy. Make sure you post more pictures of your Christmas decor.
love ya, mom

Is the cradle safe...can't kids get stuck in those slots? Mack looks great...too bad his coat is so small; he'll probably grow out of it in a couple of days or something. Just kidding, don't lecture me on the tone of my comments.

Love Grandpa P.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
