Remember when we talked about Christmas last month? Well, just a little nudge for you. If you’re so inclined, Organized Christmas’ Holiday Grand Plan and Houseworks Holiday Plan start this week. Check them out. And if this isn’t your groove, make sure you tell yourself so and don’t give it another thought.
Sorry it took so long to get the photos out. I was waiting to hear back from People magazine and how much our first photos deal was gonna be…. Here she is, freshly washed and swaddled! FishBaby’s eye looks kinda gross here because she was born with a cyst in her right eye duct. The […]
