Dear Jaylee,

I'd like to thank you for coming up with the pattern for the Christmas stocking advent calendar. I finished mine (the morning of Dec. 1st) and put the daily scripture references on the back. It's quick, it's simple, and it reminds us each day of our Savior's birth. (Well, almost each day... we have to double up occasionally).

I'd also like to thank you for not posting anything about poop. Nothing about raspberries or blueberries oozing onto your new, beautiful, hardwood floors. No dirty underpants from any of your children or droppings left from the vermin that run rampant through your house. You haven't mentioned a thing about boys spraying pee all over your fabulous new bathroom either. Thank you for that.

I'd also, also, like to thank you for the polite language that you use. Not a single "freaking" has come from your fingertips. A simple "good gravy" does a complete job of relaying the frustration that you feel for our dear friend. What a fine example you are. What an inspiration.


PS Maybe we can go to Starbucks and grab a hot chocolate sometime.

so what are you trying to say about my freaking blog? It's just the life of having 3 boys that you will occassionally have to write about poop. That's my life so it goes in my journal/blog. Gina asked me today why I cursed so it was funny that you mentioned that. I guess I just have a rebelious streak in me. I try not to talk that way around people that it might offend but my journal/blog is fair game. Maybe I should put warnings on each post - WARNING CUSSING IN THIS POST. WARNING POOP IN THIS POST. something like that. I'll think about it and get back to you on that one.

Helena - what kind words! I'm thrilled that something made at Super Saturday isn't ending up in your junk pile, as most of my crafts have in the years prior. In the interest of full disclosure, I may not have posted much about those apparently taboo topics since my fingers have been busy painting rather than typing out posts. Let's do Starbucks sometime. Hot chocolate sounds great, for you. I'll be the one with a white chocolate mocha. Then we'll go to your house where I can expend some energy wiping off your counter tops, since you've done it for some many other ladies and are deserving of it being done for you.

Jaylee, check your mailbox! (I don't have your email address, so I hope you clicked on the follow-up comments)

Ooops, Jaylee, that would be your REAL mailbox... you know, your snail-mailbox.
