It's not cold Mom!

This past weekend it finally stopped raining and with a little wild man it can be very hard not to get outside. Blake and I decided since it was pretty we would go to the park. First of all, we had not been outside all day. I knew that it was somewhat cold just from letting the dogs out, but had no idea that it was meat hanging weather! This did not matter to Bryce. As soon as we let him out of the car he hit the ground running, literally! He throughly enjoyed it, even though we were only out for about 20 minutes. It didn't phase him that it was cold until we were back in the car and he started to thaw out. We survived and Bryce was just so happy to be out of the house that it was totally worth it!

Getting ready for Christmas!

Sorry I haven't posted lately. We have been getting ready for Christmas. I have done some really great shopping this year and found such great deals! I can't wait for the big day. Anyway....We took our pictures for our family christmas card and I thought I would put up a few. First, I had to share this cute picture of Bryce playing under the tree!

Steven went to his first dance on December 5 also! He is so big and I am getting older by the second. Look how handsome he looked. Don't worry he didn't dance with any girls yet. He had a great time though!

Here's some shots for our Christmas card.

We are going this weekend to take some Santa pictures. Hopefully Bryce will cooporate. He has started the terrible twos a little early and has decided that he is a very independant person.

Merry Christmas and hope to post some more soon!

Do I really need to say anything about why these two boys look so happy?



Gobble till you Wobble!

I cooked my very first Thanksgiving this year. It went great, too! I was somewhat surprised that mostly everything turned out. Everything that is except for green bean casserole. I know, how did I mess that up!? I have no idea and after everything else was finished I didn't care. We entertained my side of the family at our house. We are having the Griswold Family Christmas this year so this was a practice run! Here is Steve-O ready to eat!

Here is my turkey. It was so good. We cleaned the bird and then added fresh rosemary and thyme under her skin. She turned out great! I have to build my serving collection!

I unfortunately came down with a stomach virus Thursday. I ate only a little of my turkey and some rolls. By the time we had to leave for Blake's family's Thanksgiving, I felt awful and did not eat a thing. It was great at my in-laws because Blake's uncle and his new wife were in town. I just love them! We hate that they live so far away! I could hang out with them all the time. Blake really favors his uncle.

Needless to say, we had a great Thanksgiving! We spent time with our families and even though I was not feeling up to par for most of the weekend it was wonderful!
