Saying Goodbye to 2012

We have had many ups and downs throughout this past year. 

Some of my favorite moments from this past year have been:
1. Finding out we are having a baby
2. Our Niece Evie being born
3. Celebrating our 3rd Anniversary together
4. All the family moments
5. Seeing 2 of our friends get married and being in the wedding
6. Spending time with friends
7. Getting our new puppy Cash

Some of the not so great but still life changing moments have been:
1. My Dad's heartattack and 5-way bypass
2. My Uncle's cancer coming back
3. My parents moving out of our old home and my grandparents home
4. My Uncle having a heartattack and having to get a pacemaker
5. My Hubby having to have thumb surgery for a staph infection

It has been quite a year but we are truly blessed and I can't wait to ring in the new year! 

Christmas 2012

I'm finally posting about our Christmas! I feel so behind and almost didn't even post about it because I feel like it's in the past already lol! I decided to post about it anyway so if you are reading this blog I hope you don't think I'm too far behind. 

We had a wonderful Christmas as usual. However, I kept thinking about how exciting next years Christmas will be with our new baby! I can't wait to watch him or her enjoy the day. We spent Christmas Eve at Heath's parents house and then Christmas morning with my family. We usually have Christmas morning at my parents house but since they are building a house and are currently living in a camper we had it at our house. We got so many great gifts although I didn't post half of them, we are truly blessed to have such wonderful families. Hubby got me a Northface Jacket and a charm for my bracelet and I got him a new bow and a case for it. Sadly, we didn't make it to all of our Christmas' this year because we had a snow and ice storm and couldn't make it to Heath's grandparents and I sure missed going. Anyway, here are some pictures of our Christmas!

My charm from my Hubby! My favorite gift! It says Baby on it! 



 Me and my Cousin Tiffany! We both got matching jackets!

The gift my cousin Tiffany got me! I love it!

All in all it was a good Christmas and I feel so blessed to be a part of wonderful families! Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas as well!

Snow Day 2012!

We got a white Christmas after all! It started snowing about 5 on Christmas night and didn't stop till after midnight. So we have had a wonderful snow day today! Thankfully unlike so many we didn't lose our electricity so we still had a nice warm house. We got at least 10 inches I love the snow when I have no where to be so it's fine to stick around a couple of days just not too long :)!

Holli in the snow! It was taller then her! 

Holli and Heath!

Cash in the snow!

We made some donuts to enjoy on this snowy day! 

 Me and My Babies!

Cash, it was his first snow. 

So pretty!

The babies weren't too fond of the snow. They really hate to go out in it but Cash is fine with it after he gets in it! We spent the day playing in the snow and enjoyed watching movies the rest of the day! It's been a fabulous day! We also had a wonderful Christmas which I will post pics of later! I don't have them uploaded yet! We get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl next Friday so don't forget to vote in the poll at the top of my blog!

Weekend Recap

Friday I went up to Branson with my Mom and Dad for the day! It was nice to get away for a little while and I really enjoyed seeing the Christmas lights at Silver Dollar City! On the way home the Hubby surprised me by coming in from work. I was so excited to get home after I found out!

Saturday I tried to finish my Christmas shopping but wasn't successful. That evening we went out to eat at Olive Garden with our 2 best friends then came home and relaxed!

Sunday was the Christmas play at church. I received some great little gifts from my adorable Sunday school kiddos and loved watching them in the play. That afternoon we went to the mall with my parents to work on our shopping. We ended the night by eating at Coleton's. 

It was a great weekend and a very busy one. This week starts some of our Christmas parties and I look forward to every single one of them! Hope you all have a great week!

Christmas Tour 2012

Our decorations this year are not too different from last year. This year when it was time to decorate I was just recovering from being so sick with morning sickness so I was lucky enough to have my Mom to help me decorate. 

Welcome to our Christmas home.....
My wreath I made!

 Our Christmas Tree! It has the same mesh on it as the wreath. 

My nativity!

 This little tree lights up although you can't tell by this picture!

My Christmas Card Wall!

 My kitchen is done in Coca-Cola so I had to get out my Santa coke stuff!

Small tree in our bathroom!

Bathroom shelf!

And I had to post a couple of my favorite parts of our tree this year!

Angel at the top of our tree! My Aunt Mildred made it and I LOVE it! 

We are expecting our first baby in June and my Mom and Dad got us this ornament! I LOVE that it's on our tree!

Weekend Recap!

This week has flew by and I haven't had time to blog, but anyway I've had a pretty good weekend!

Friday and Saturday I really didn't do much, I've been working on my Christmas cards and wrapping gifts! Today has been a wonderful day though despite the rain and storms! It started with church and then a baby shower for a lady in our church. It was so fun to look at all the little baby clothes and get ideas for if our baby is a boy! Then I watched the Christmas movie The Mistle-Tones with my Mom and this wonderful day ended with two of our best friends getting ENGAGED!! I'm soo excited CONGRATS Chris and Emily! 

Since I didn't get one posted last week, I do have a baby bump picture to post later this week and I also will post a poll to see if ya'll think it's a boy or it's a girl!

I'm also really hoping to get pics of my Christmas decorations up so stay tuned!

Have a GREAT week!

Weekend Recap and Catch Up!

Wow it sure has been awhile since I've blogged! I just really haven't had much to post about except the Baby and it hasn't been that exciting lately so I didn't feel the need to post! So let's catch up......

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful! We enjoyed spending it with all of our family and always love the holiday's so we can spend more time with family!

Now for this past weekend!

Friday morning was a Dr. appointment! We got to see our little baby and hear it's heartbeat. My Dr. also gave us a clue as to what it might be but we will have to wait until January to be sure! I am officially in my 2nd trimester and 14 weeks along! That afternoon and evening we stayed home and relaxed all day. 

 Saturday this sweet girl came to visit her Aunt and Uncle for a little while. She's such a little cutie and I love watching her grow!
After that we went out to eat that night at Fuji's with friends! It was such a good time and I love seeing our friends!

Here is a picture of the wreath I made! I love it! I do have all of our Christmas decorations up and will be posting pics of them soon! Now if only I could get all of our Christmas shopping done! 

Today I haven't felt good so I have stayed home but I think I've been feeling our little baby all day so that makes it better! The Hubby had to go back off to work for a week and so he left today! I miss him already but at least it's only a week this time! 

 I'm hoping to get a baby bump picture up this week and also a poll to see if ya'll think it's a boy or a girl! Enjoy your week!
