Its almost Christmas!

It always officially feels like Christmas time when our town or city puts up their Christmas decorations. It doesn't matter where you live, it's special whatever town you go to. Every year growing up in Easton, PA, I loved it when they covered the statue in the circle with the giant candle that lit up. That's when the magic began. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving! This year we spent the holiday by ourselves. I made us turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn bread, green beans, cranberry cups, pumpkin pie and cheese cake. I may have gone a little overboard for just the 4 of us. It was a quiet Turkey Day. We played some games and watched a little football.

I am especially grateful this year for everything the Lord has given me. I feel like the Lord has blessed us in so many ways this year. Our kids are growing and learning at school, Jeremiah has finally been able to talk with his bosses and is now pretty content placed in another position at work where he can grow more and I am now expecting our newest little boy here soon. Even though we've had some bumps along the way, our little baby is growing well and so far my health has been better than it's been in a long time. All in all it has been a very nice holiday. Now we can't wait until Christmas!

Days like this...

I love days like this!
Okay, this morning I had to take the kiddos out of school early so I could make it to my OB appointment without having to stress over getting back in time to pick up Brooklyn from school.
They were pretty good, I must admit.
The appointment went well. I confirmed that indeed we are scheduled to have baby Dallas on January 12, 2010! He is growing well and his heartbeat sounded like a train! So loud! That was good. I have gained a couple pounds since last appointment but I'm not complaining over 2lbs that's for sure. When we got home Brooklyn helped me vacuum, especially when my sciatic nerve started killing me. I was told water therapy would help. Heck, who has the money or time for that?!
Jer came home and we had dinner and he ran around the house with the kids. The Goof!

Daddy's huntin helpers

Its a Saturday morning and the kids had a blast looking for coyote with daddy. Mason kept looking through the binoculars saying I see one! Brooklyn wasn't so happy to be sitting still for so long. A girl after her mommy's heart.

Visit to Springs

This weekend we drove to Colorado Springs to help move Grandma Bonnie's house. The kids had fun seeing her and trying on her wigs. It was hard to see Bonnie so sad. We got to visit with her and she actually looked better than I expected.
We got a great deal on our junior suite and it was nice to feel spoiled for a couple days. The kids got to swim. They look forward to that every time we spend a night.

A little Christmas early...

Every year we enjoy decorating the Christmas tree. This year we were extra excited since we finally got some ornaments that we've been wanting for a long time. Its been really nice to have the kids old enough to enjoy the tree without really messing with it too much. I won't be able to say that next year so I better enjoy it while I can. He he!

Here is my Mason bug being silly.
Brook was such a cutie putting the ornaments just so.
The finished product. Love it!

Happy Halloween!

After we shovelled out of our drive way, we went to Sterling for trunk or treat at the church. Before that Jer and I took our cheer leader and transformer around Jer's parents block real quick. They were so funny! Brooklyn kept getting trick or treat mixed up with happy Halloween! Mason would say trick or treat, do you have suckers! LOL! What do ya do? At the Halloween party, Jeremiah won the "money maker costume" because he could make money while wearing it. AHHHhhhaaaa! Funny!
