Home Again At Last!!

Well, I am still recovering from the long week. We ended up leaving Tuesday night because a friend of Justin's was killed in a car accident, which added a lot more stress to the trip. We spent Thanksgiving with both of our families and then we went to Dallas for the weekend with my parents. We had such a good time!! We went to the Botanical Gardens, Omni, JFK Museum, and the Galleria. Pretty busy!! Brynn was so tired by the time we got home that she just crasehed and barely moved all night long. This was the longest she had been away from home and I know it was pretty hard on her. Here are some pictures from the trip. I would give more details, but I need to get caught up here at work!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

NOTE TO PIE: What is you email?! I want to talk to you!!!!!

The Botanical Gardens

The JFK Museum

And of course we had to ride some race cars along the way

Thanksgiving Stress

I know it has been awhile since I posted last, but boy has this been a crazy week. We got family pictures made which always makes for a stressful time. I wasn't too happy with the outcome, but it will have to do until Brynn can be still and smile. It is hard to get a good picture when she keeps crawling off. Now, we are preparing for Thanksgiving (which basically means doing laundry forever!) We will be leaving for Dublin (Justin's family) tommorrow, Gorman on Thursday, back to Dublin until Saturday, to Dallas on Saturday, back to Dublin Sunday morning, and then back to Abilene Sunday night. Sounds like fun-right?!?!?! Not to mention this morning I woke up to a sick little baby girl, so we are going to the doctor this afternoon to get her all better before this fun road trip. Ahhhhh the joys of being a mom. I am excited about being away with no worries. I love the holidays once we get there, it is just the preparing that I hate. So, happy turkey day to everyone and I will be back on Monday!

Post Birthday

Well, last night Justin and I went and ate all alone!! This was something we had not done in a long time!! After that, we went and saw Derailed with Jennifer Aniston. Wow-it was not like any of her other movies. Pretty freaky! This was the first time we had seen a movie in the theatre since I was early pregnant. (Once I got farther along we stopped going because I would have to leave so many times to go pee!) We had so much fun together and it was nice to be stress-free and just relaxed alone. Justin had given me my birthday present on Friday-he isn't good about keeping secrets. So, meet Roxy-the newest addition to our family!!

Today is my birthday!! I can't believe I am already 26. That sounds so old to me!! It doesn't help that my husband is only 22. Saturday night we all went out to celebrate. We had SO much fun with everyone! Here are some more pictures from the night. I love all of our friends so much and we always have a good time when we go out together.

Overall it was a very eventful evening and we had a lot of fun! I will update tomorrow on everything that happens tonight.

Big Girl

This weekend we went to Dublin to visit Justin's parents. We had SO much fun and it was so spur of the moment that we went. We just decided to up and go, which now days is unusual for us to do. We stayed up playing Taboo against his parents and I laughed so hard I literally had cramps afterwards. During the day on Saturday we went shopping and got our Christmas outfits for our pictures and then got Brynn a 'big girl' car seat. She had outgrown her baby one, so this was a big step for her. When we got back to Justin's parents, we decided to look it over. Their gigantic poodle, Kramer, is already jealous of Brynn and doesn't really like sharing their attention with her. He always rolls all over her toys and tries to cuddle up with whoever isn't holding her. Once we got the car seat out, I guess he thought it was for him!! We laughed so hard at his effort for attention.
Before we left Sunday morning, Memaw took Brynn out for a morning swing. Brynn just sang and talked to everything. Pearl (Justin's mom) says she'll turn out to be a country girl....guess we'll just have to see. If she is anything like her mom, she won't live too far from a mall!

Happy Halloween

Last night we got Brynn's ladybug costume out and tried to take some pictures, but she wasn't having that. This was the look we got when we showed her the costume.

Finally we got it on her and this was the best picture we could get.
