Christmas last year

This Christmas was ok for us, we spent our first christmas eve with my husbands parents and family. We have been married six years and this was our first. Only because we always spend thanksgiving with them. So the girls were with their dad this year and Christmas day was a bust. It snowed so much here, we couldn't go anywere! I did get to reflect on last Christmas. I had all my kids together on Christmas Eve at my aunts house with my grandma and dad. It was my grandma's last Christmas, she passed away in June. It was so wonderful to have a houseful of family and all the kaos. It was the best Christmas I had in a long time. It makes me thankful for my family and I love them all very much. Time is precious and means so much, take each moment and cherish it always!

My little boy..

So L is doing really well, he has his days but I see progress. I always get eye contact from him and he is interacting alot more. He spent four hours at his grandma and grandpas house the other night and did well. He knows were eyes are and he can point to them. We are now working on nose. I have been reading Mother Warriors and it has really given me more hope. I plan on getting him to a DAN doctor by the first of the year. I keep buggin the speech therapy at USU (he is on a waiting list) so hopefully he will be going soon. He communicates to us, just not with words. He will take us to what he wants or he uses some signs. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful little boy, you just look at him and melt.

Corey and Candee opening presents, on our way to thanksgiving,and having a good time with the family. We get to celebrate thanksgiving and birthdays, so we get pies and cake!!

They even got bells from Santa Clause.."the first gift of christmas."

Our tickets to the Polar Express and waiting to get on the train. Once on we got our HOT was so fun and worth it!

Last night for family night we went to the movies..The first time since we moved here. We saw madagascar. I recommend it, so funny and I think better than the first. I love the penguins, and all the original characters Melman,gloria, Alex,and Marty. Logan actually sat and watched most of it without a fuss. So glad we went!


Since November is the month to show our gratitude, I decided to post things I am thankful for early. Here they are:

1. My Husband (even on the hard days)
2. My children, all of them! Even the aquired ones! (you should know who you are)
3. My Home, it took so much to get here and a year later I am still amazed that we live in this beautiful place!
4. In one of my favorite movies a saying is used and I so feel the same way it is "my cup runneth over" and it does with so much!
5. My family how blessed I am to have the people I do in my life.
6. My future best friend.
7. The teachers who work with Logan. They are so awesome! He is doing so well!
8. My scentsy business...My house always smells nice :)
9. Good health for me and my family.
10. My Dad...we have really connected in the last few years and it is so great to be able to just talk to him and spend time together.
11. My Van, it runs and it is roomy enough for the kids to beat each other up and I can still drive in peace.
12. My Ipod. Never thought I would ever want one of these. Ha what a find. I can tune out fighting kids with my favorite music!
13. My laptop
14. Weight loss....
15. My horse getting broke.
16. Feeling good days :)
17. Meeting new people.
18. Family Nights
19. Popcorn...Yummmmmmmm
20. Chocolate!
21. Abundance!
22. My future cupcake shop.

Yes I am one of those people. I have read all the books and now I did it last night! I bought my ticket to see the movie! It opens on Friday, but well I was not the only person with this brilliant idea! So I have to wait until saturday. The girls wanted to go (neither have read the book) but still wanted to go. Since the hubby had to work..I think he was quite thankful for that. (he can't understand all the hype..)I got grandma to watch the youngster so I can totally enjoy my movie,and now I have to wait.

This is how we decorated the house....

Halloween costume....

The girls and I had so much fun with halloween this year. Last year this time we just moved here from Nevada. So we found all our decorations and bought and made a few this year. It was so much fun, that and getting the costumes together.
