10 months...really?

Where in the world did the last 10 months go?  Before I know it Christmas will be over, January will be here and Hunter will be ONE.  That is a crazy thought!  
Hunter is still sweet and happy as always.  He is very content and loves to be out and about.  Still not sleeping that great, but that is the only real thing I can complain about.  I try to be thankful for everything, but starting every day THAT early (about 5) is difficult.  We have decided to make him stay in his bed until 6, so I turn the monitor off and set my alarm for 6 and then get him up to start the day!  Hunter is crawling around everywhere and pulling up on everything!  He loves to stand up.  You can tell he is so proud of himself when he does that.  He has had a few ear infections this past month but as of yesterday we are clear!  I pray it stays that way.  Hunter is a perfect addition and COMPLETION to our family!  Love this boy more than words can say!

happy turkey day 2011!

The table was ready,

and our friends arrived.

It was time for some serious playing

and some FOOTBALL!!!!!

What a fun thanksgiving this was!  Our dear friends, the Lohrdings, came in town from Lubbock on Thursday and we had a FEAST.  After we ate we headed to the park to burn off some calories!  

Friday we put up the Christmas tree, ate some more and watched some HOG football.  The Hogs didn't win the game, but they did great and I guess it's ok when you lose to the #1 ranked team in college football!  

Saturday was the big Baylor/Tech game and we had a fun crew that joined us at Jerry World to cheer on the bears.  The bears won and it was tons of fun celebrating that win!

I look back at where our family was this time last year.  I was 7 months pregnant and trying to do my best to prepare Abby for what lied ahead.  I smile as I think about the last 10 months and how Hunter has completed our family.  I laugh when I think about how scared I was that Abby was going to be a nightmare and how she could not have proved me more wrong.  I am so thankful for many things, but this year I am most thankful for my kids and precious husband who walks through every day with me.  Every EARLY morning and every step he is with me.  I am thankful to the LORD for what HE has done this past year and our many, many blessings.  He is the reason for all of it and to HIM be the glory!

Happy Thanksgiving!

....in the bath tub!

I know most of you have seen this done, but I got the idea off of Pinterest and it was a hit with Abby!  The picture isn't great, but you get the idea.  She can play in the tub for an hour and this added to the fun.

Vegas baby

the Wizard of Oz machines

the biggest donut I had ever seen

The Bain girls took a quick weekend trip to Las Vegas to celebrate my MIL's bday.  She had never been before and Lacy came up with the idea to surprise her with a trip there.  We arrived on Friday afternoon and saw The Jersey Boys that night.  Saturday, we shopped and walked around seeing the strip and sights in Vegas.  We went to the Garth Brooks concert that night.  I did not know what to expect, but it was amazing.  It was an intimate setting and he came out in jeans and a baseball cap with just his guitar.  He told his story of the music that inspired him as he grew up.  It was just great.

We didn't do too much gambling, but I did win $55 on the Razorback win against South Carolina.  I bet $50 and got $55 back.  FUN!!!  It was a fun weekend with the girls and I think Mimi enjoyed Vegas!
