A mom in a mom's group that I am in posted a link to Martha Stewart's checklists for cleaning! It is several lists, a daily, weekly, monthly and seasonal list for cleaning! The mom suggested printing them off, laminating them so you can check it off and then wipe off and reuse! I am very excited and really hope that this will help with getting me into a better system as opposed to the once or every other week crazy I am so stressed cleaning!
Hope these help you out as well!

This was her when I picked her up...only a slight difference, the ponytail at the top of her head. Her teacher put it in for her and she just looked so silly to me.
Well, with the cool kid pony tail came a serious attitude. She was watching Elmo before dinner and I decided to vacuum the house. She was fine until I made it in the living room and apparently I was too loud because she turned right at me, put up her hand and told me to "stay," just like she tells the dogs. What! Are you kidding me! As soon as I left the room she was content but apparently I was disturbing her show!

We had a good Christmas but on Christmas Eve my Grandfather slipped on some ice in Canada and fell and did some significant damage to his hip/pelvis area. It was a pretty scary phone call and my mom ended up leaving the afternoon of Christmas to be with him and her mom and stayed until he had surgery several weeks later. He is still recovering but doing very well but is still in need of our prayers.
Now off to 2010....

The best part of the night was when she saw that the cow from Chick Fila (her favorite restaurant ever) made an appearance at the party we were at. She immediately ran over to him and never left his side. She also kept making a ,"mooo," sound all night! It was cute and I was surprised at how much she loved him.
After hanging out with her cow friend we went trick or treating and after a couple of houses quickly got the hang of it and had a blast.
So...that was October at the Acord household!
I made some pillows for the first time ever borrowing my mom's sewing machine (I got my own for my birthday in October). Not the world's greatest quality but they work and I am sure with more practice I could do some fancy stuff! It was a true test of patience which I don't have! I still have fabric that I need to make some curtains with for the kitchen so I am not doing as much projects as I would like but it is fun!
So..since the last post was Peyton's birthday, I am going to start working on doing a monthly update for September through January and then once you are all caught up...I can start blogging about current happenings!
Be patient and look for some new posts coming soon....
