Big milestones for our boy this week! I discovered him like this yesterday morning. That's right stood himself up! Today, he can now sit up all by himself as well. It's going too fast!

Show and Tell Monday: Christmas Talk


1. Tell us what your favorite thing about Christmas is.

My favorite things about Christmas are bringing family and even the unexpected close together. The giving to people in need and common goals to help others out this season can bring us all together. If we get down deep, the best thing about Christmas is the reason for the season, Jesus. It's a time of year that we all can come back to our faith if we haven't felt as connected. It's a time that we all can remember how blessed we are. It really is my most favorite time of the year...to risk sounding corny.

2. Tell us what your plans for Christmas are this year.

This year we've been especially blessed by my in-laws, we're all going on a cruise! We're leaving the 23rd and will return the 29th. We'll spend Christmas day at Epcot, hit Grand Stirrup Cay, Nassau, and back to NYC. While it's something totally different, and we'll miss our Ohio and far away family it's going to be jam packed full of great memories!

3. Show us a picture of Christmas in the Past.

4. Do you wrap your presents all in one box, or wrap each present separately?

Usually separately, I love under the tree to look nice and full! We even wrap what goes in the stockings!

5. Tell us and special traditions you and your family like to do?

On my side we always get up in the morning eat breakfast together and sit down and read the story of baby Jesus and reflect on what this day was really about, then dig into presents! On the hubs side it's a tradition to go to Christmas Eve service at church and then everyone gets a matching set of PJ's, yes even as adults we get excited for matching PJ's!

This is belated, but welcome to the world Colby James! My dear friends Holly & Ben welcomed their 2nd blessing this past Friday and added their little boy to their family, and Calleigh became a big sister!

If you notice there is a picture of Holly's parents taped up on the surgical drape. About a month and a half ago Gina, Holly's mom, passed away after a battle with breast cancer. I know Mama Gina was looking down and blessing that day with the biggest smile on her face.

To donate to the fight against breast cancer check out The Gina Brunen Memorial Fund.

Show and Tell Monday: My Christmas List
































I don't really have much of a Christmas List this year. We're going on a cruise and I'd much rather spend the $$ on doing things on the cruise, but for the purposes of doing a link up I came up with a few things for my list!

 That lovely coffee table, at a price tag of $2700 it's not THAT one I want, I'd just like to find something similar at a thrift store. That bag, I'm already getting thanks to my Momma! It's in the prettiest yellow I've ever seen and can't wait for it to be mine! The Keurig...never thought I'd want one, but we've given in and want one...bad! A name ring  that has my little mans name one it. And of course to finish off the list is something that is ALWAYS on my list, Canon Mark II 5D DSLR.

Really though, this year has been a year of blessings already, this really is just a wish list of things that I don't need and am completely happy without. I have an amazing husband, a healthy baby boy, and a cute little roof over our heads..and we're finishing the year off with a cruise with some of our family.

It's the little things

10:14 AM

Linking up with Lindsay again this week over at Hello Hue!


Kurt (and me unofficially) received a promotion from the parent company of our small business that we have. Woohoo for little victories! We've been blessed to be come a part of this company who rewards it's associates for their success. We received a little package from them a leather box, pins, and personalized business card holder.


An impromptu dinner date with my little guy. I was craving it, had no one to go with me...or so I thought! I had my little man! We went to a local yummy mexican restaurant and had our fill on the cheap.


And really this week it is about the little things, like our baby boy. He's the best little thing of all! He turned 8 months old this week, and the time sure is flying by. He's the BEST little thing of the week overall!
