I've noticed getting angry when I see Christmas lights or hear Christmas music. I'm not ready for Christmas just yet. There are so many things to be thankful for. I want to Cherish those moments and let people know how thankful I really am this year. What a wonderful year it has been. So many things to be grateful for. There are things I don't even notice until the end of the day. Then one thing turns into ten things to be thankful for! FAMILY I am thankful for my Family this year more than ever. We have had to lean on each other and support each other. Learn from each other, cry and laugh with each other. Name it we went through it. I am grateful for that time we had to grow together. We are stronger because of it.

Meet my cousin's Nikki and Katie,

Life has been a roller coaster these last couple of months. And with out the strength of the lord and close family and friends things would have fallen apart. Katie was involved in a drunk driving accident a couple of months ago. Two people in that accident were killed. Let me tell you why I am thankful for this experience. Having been on the opposite side really turns things around. How I now know what it feels like and what the other side is also going through. And how everyone involved suffers, not only the families that have lost a loved one, but the families responsible. Since September our family has been the closest it has ever been. And for that I am thankful for my family. There is still a lot more to come. Please continue to pray for our family.

I am so thankful for Madasin,

I am so thankful for the 6 amazing years I have had with her. How thankful I am for her kindness and fun loving personalty. I am thankful for how loving she is towards people. I am thankful for her kind heart and how she rarely judges people. I am thankful for her loud laugh, I am thankful for her willingness to serve others. I am thankful to be her mommy!

I am Thankful for these two!

I am thankful for McKinlee,

I am thankful for the sweet spirit this child has. I am thankful for how much she Care's for me. I am thankful for all the love she gives . I am thankful for the many hugs and kisses. I am thankful to have the chance to watch her grow. I am thankful to be her mommy!

I am thankful for baby Monroe,

I am thankful for this new adventure. I am thankful for the little flutters I am feeling. I am thankful for my ever expanding belly. I am thankful for another child. I am thankful I get to be your mommy. I am thankful for you.

I am also thankful for the love which my husband has for me and our little family. I am thankful for all of his hard work. I am thankful for my best friend.

This year it is all about being thankful, and the reason I am thankful is because the lord as blessed me in so many ways.

Baby Up Date!

I'm finally going to be an Aunt on my side of the family. This is Desiree my brother Ryan's girl friend. We are due two weeks apart. What a difference. Yes this is my 3rd and I have large babies, but seriously not fair. But I can't complain this time around is a lot better. Most of the time I'm reminding myself that I'm pregnant. It's that great. This is our baby at 18 weeks 5 days. She is measuring at 19 weeks 3 days.

17 1/2 weeks!

I don't feel as big as I look. This pregnancy is totally different from the last. I'm still in my normal jeans, and some shirts. I'm not craving anything really, except water taste like soap to me. Not satisfying! My belly button is already flat. It seems early for that. I still have no idea what I'm going to name her. So far I like Monroe, Mabry and Maxine! But I'm Lost. Please tell me your favorite from these three.

Three Days Of Halloween.

This year we celebrated Halloween from Friday to Sunday. It was a little too much by Monday. But it's hard not to do anything since McKinlee's birthday is on the 29Th. I know this post is backwards but bare with me. This was sunday night. Since we didn't go to trunk or treat, we took the girls out on Halloween. We had a blast! Once McKinlee realized what was going on and how to get free candy she was off. You should have seen her run through people's yards her bucket would swing from side to side. Almost knocking her over. We had a great night with family.
Tatum and Madasin.

This was Saturday night. Since Jp had to work, we went to my Aunt Sandy's ward carnival. The girls had a good time. They got there face painted, wen't through a haunted house. Carved pumpkins. And just hung out with family. Kinlee Love's my uncle Rick's boxer Marlee. She try's to pick her up.

Me and my girl's at the carnival! Our pumpkins. And McKinlee's new favorite thing in the world. Her Bike.

She plays the part well.

Now on to the most important day. McKinlee's 2Nd Birthday Party!

Wow another year has gone by, and my baby is now a little girl. We decided to have a family party this year. With costumes and yummy soups and a pumpkin carving contest. We played candy corn bowling. And a black cat crashed our party. The only thing this kid would talk about was bike's.If we we're driving and she saw a bike she would Yale. Mom bike pink. She wanted a pink bike. One night I put her to bed and when I walked by I could here her saying.. Bike, pink bike. This girl would not stop out this bike. So this is what she got. She is so in love. McKinlee has been the sweetest little baby ever. She is so kind and lovey. I already miss her as baby, and will forever miss that. Happy Birthday McKinlee! We Love You.

This was her pumpkin cake my sister Amy made her.

Some of the cousin's!

She did not want anything to do with carving the pumpkin.

Next year I bet I will miss this cute little face..
