whats goin on..

Friday after Thanksgiving my good friend Christina and her boyfriend Jeff invited us to his family cabin in Pinetop. It was COLD! but so much fun! So we loaded up (even Tolly got to come!) and spent the weekend in Pinetop. It was so nice to relax and snuggle up near the fire..make smores!..go on walks..ride around in the golf cart..and watch too many episodes of storage wars..ha! Thats when Lyla first started walking along the furniture! scary :)

other than that..Tommy got into the paramedic program through Southwest and starts on Dec 12th! which means its gonna be a LONG year... oh well :) sacrifice brings blessings right?! :) Im looking into going back to school in January..I really wanna do dental we will see! wish us luck!

Happy Thanksgiving!

passed her bedtime so she would NOT smile for any pictures! but had to get one of her cute outfit! :)

This year for Thanksgiving we had a lot to be thankful for. Im so grateful Lyla is with us this year! On Thanksgiving day we did the whole eat at both family things.. yikes! WAY too much food.. I think next year we may have to do one or the other :) But we had a wonderful day with lots of family! All growing up on Thanksgiving night we would have a sleepover at my aunt Debbies house. Us sisters and mom decided to carry on the tradition within our little family now! So we went to Mels for the evening and watched a sad movie (Sarah's key), ate treats, crafted (kinda!) and stayed up late cyber black friday shopping! Thanks Smelly for the fun night!


my baby is 9 months old. I think i say the same things every month post..where did the time go..i can't believe it.. but its so true! 9 months! WHAT!? Lyla is seriously the best thing that has ever happened to me. She is fun, energetic, easy-going, silly, content..chubby :).. She is the cutest! I love her so much.

Halloween 2011

This year for Halloween was so fun! It was our baby girls 1st! We dressed her up, and took her to both grandma's houses to "trick-or-treat!" She was so cute! Cutest kitty cat I've ever seen! :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stage Lyla is in right now. I totally miss my little baby but she is just so fun. Its like I can literally watch her learn about new things. We had so much fun showing her off to everyone and can't wait for next year when she will enjoy it a little more! :)
