Thanksgiving (Day One)

Yesterday we went to my Grandmothers for Thanksgiving. It brought back a lot of memories from when I was a kid. We used to have Thanksgiving at her house every year until we got older and started doing it at my mom's house. Thanksgiving is and always has been my favorite holiday. I'm not really sure why. I guess I just like the togetherness of the family. Plus, I have such fond memories of it growing up. The kids played with the same exact toys we played with when we were kids. They played in the same tree we played in. It was really great to see our kids enjoying the same things we did.Crazy Cody (refusing to have his picture taken, but still cute)

Beautiful Kaylee (a spitting image of my sister)

Hayden the Ham (always ready for a picture)

Sweet Landon (always ready for his picture taken too)

CHAOS (we were trying to get a picture of all the kids in the tree. It didn't work out so well and I'm not sure what Nikki is doing.

We have more Thanksgiving festivities to attend today. So, more pictures to come later. Maybe I can get a picture of all of them together this time.
I hope every one's Thanksgiving was as great as ours!

New Adventures

This week has been a little different for Hayden and me. We both started new adventures on Monday. I am now working full time at a Daycare/preschool and Hayden is going to school. To be exact he is going to the same facility I am working at and He loves it. He tells me everyday he's not ready to go home and all he talks about is school. I don't have a lot of time this morning to get in to detail but I'll be back with a longer post and some pictures in the coming days. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!

Finally a few photos

We took some pictures for our Christmas card in the front yard on Sunday. Hayden will be the only one displaying his cuteness this year. I'm just not Christmas card material. Here are a few of the shots that didn't make it to the card. Thanks Shelly for the code from snapfish!

Oh NO!

This is what happens when you leave the fridge unlocked!!
Thanks Hayden, because I didn't have enough to do already!

I'm still here, I've just been sleeping

I know I haven't posted in awhile. I have no pictures either. The truth is, I'm exhausted. I've been either too busy to post or I've been sleeping. Seriously, I'm in bed by 8:00 every night. I'm hoping that in a week or so I'll start to get some energy back because I seriously have NONE. I'm feeling great overall I just feel like I need to sleep. Our doctors appointment last week went very well. The doctor said that she doesn't think that my subchorionic Hemorrhage is anything to worry about. I hope she's right. Mom and I had a hard time seeing it on the ultrasound screen. It definitely wasn't as visible as the week before. I go back to the doctor on the 19th for my normal 12 week appointment and another ultrasound just to follow up. This will be the 4th ultrasound we've had in just the first trimester. Hopefully things will be smooth sailing from here on out. I have a good feeling about it plus I just don't think I can take any bad news.

Hayden is doing great. I can't believe that he'll be 3 in two months. It just doesn't seem possible. Tonight him and Landon are having a sleepover. Those two have so much fun together. Greg and I were just talking about how it's so strange to listen to the two of them conversing. They really are growing up.

Greg has been on vacation since Sunday. It's so nice to have him at home. Especially since I've been so tired. He's been doing laundry and cooking dinner. And he's even been doing the dishes. I've been amazed at how much he has helped out this week. Hayden and I are pretty lucky to have him in our life. I couldn't ask for a better husband. I know you read this sometimes so, Thanks Greg for all you've done lately. Hayden and I love you!!

I promise I'll have pictures soon. As soon as I wake up!

What would you do with a minute?

McDonald's has a new campaign asking kids what they would do with one minute. You can read about it here at The Mom Salon. Over there they are asking moms what they would do with one minute.

Here is what I would do:

If I had one extra minute I would spend it with Hayden just talking. His little imagination is amazing and the stories he has to tell are priceless.

If Hayden had one minute:

He would probably take off all his clothes and run around the house like a wild man. (this seems to be his favorite activity lately. Last night I had to put his clothes back on 8 times and then I gave up.)

So what would you do with a minute?

I can't believe it

I can't even believe it. I entered a contest for a virtual baby shower worth $2600 over at Accidental Mommies, and I am one of the 10 finalists out of 270 entries. I don't know why they thought that I was so special. But, thank you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me.

Since July when we had a miscarriage our lives have been kind of upside down. It really crushed us. On September we found out that we are expecting again. Although we were very excited we were a little scared at the same time. Everything was going smoothly until last Tuesdays 8 wk ultrasound where they discovered that I have a subchorionic hemorrhage. Which is basically a blood clot between the placenta and the uterine wall. This was devastating news to us. I can't even imagine going through another miscarriage only 5 short months later. So far, our strong little baby is doing well. He/She has a very strong heartbeat and is growing everyday. We had originally decided not to tell anyone about our pregnancy so we didn't have to go through the pain of telling everyone bad news. However, at this point we need all the prayers we can get. I go back to the doctor on Wednesday for another ultrasound to see what the blood clot is doing. Hopefully, it is no longer there and we will have a baby to hold in June!! Please pray for us and our unborn baby. If we do win I'm sure he/she will enjoy all of the wonderful prizes!!

Thank you so much Accidental Mommies for choosing me to be one of your finalists. You have no clue how much this means to me and my family.
