Bubby and his work jeans

Bubby loves him some work jeans AKA jeans he can wear on the farm and get dirty with no repercussions.  In fact every new pair of jeans he gets, he asks if they can be work jeans.  And much to his dismay the answer is no quite frequently.  Now don't get me wrong, he has about 5 pairs of work jeans, but to him you can never have too many work jeans so I knew when I had the opportunity to review a pair of Wrangler jeans I knew that Bubby would be the ideal reviewer. 

Bubby couldn't wait to try out his new work jeans.  In fact he put them to work right away in the house and found out they were perfect were helping him slide down the hallway

and decorating his John Deere Christmas tree in his room. 

But truthfully, he couldn't wait to wear them on the farm and show them off to the pigs. 

His new Wrangler jeans were perfect for meeting our first litter ever of 4-H pigs.

Bubby really loves his new jeans and I love that they have an adjustable waist which is such an amazing feature in children's clothing. 

In fact, Bubby's only concern was that his new wallet wouldn't quite fit in the back pocket,

but in the scheme of things he was just ecstatic to have a brand new pair of work jeans... especially Wranglers. 

Thanks Wrangler!!

While Wrangler did give me a pair of jeans to review, all thoughts, pictures, and opinions shared on this blog are my own.

Back to reality with the end of 2011 and the start of 2012

Well as hard as it is to believe, the Christmas season has come and gone even though my Christmas tree is still in the process of coming down this weekend.  It wasn't my intent to stay away the last few weeks, but I was trying to balance being a working mom and spending as much time as possible with my kids as Big Sissy and Bubby don't go back to school until Monday.  I don't know if I succeeded really well with either one, but during my unintentional boycott of social media, I did have some great work appointments and some fun with the kids. 

So I thought I would just share some of the highlights...

Thanks to Pinterest and B. jane brewing and her Hot Moma Makeovers, Big Sissy made matching shirts for herself, Little Sissy, my mother-in-law, and Cousins L, B, A, and E

Big Sissy made some yummy cookies for Santa with some special Hershey kisses.

Little Sissy got to place Baby Jesus in the manger as Big Sissy read us The Christmas Story from the bible. 

The Farmer read "Twas the Night Before Christmas before the kids went to bed on Christmas Eve in their coordinating Christmas pajamas

My in-laws came over for our traditional Christmas breakfast on Christmas morning. 

Big Sissy went from this

to this after donating four 8 inch pony tails to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program and a cute new haircut from Aunt L.

We rung in the New Year complete with a pork crown roast decorated by Big Sissy and a special 2012 cake made by my mother-in-law, Big Sissy, and Bubby

We saw Alvin and The Chipmunks:  Chipwrecked

and we cheered on the Lady Boilers to victory!

Now it is back to reality for all of us this week as Big Sissy and Bubby head to school on Monday and I have a lot of work travel to do during January and February that starts on Monday.  So as much as we love breaks from our normal schedule; hopefully, the return of our routine will bring some regularity to our lives. 

So what have you been up to while I've been away?
