Happy Thanksgiving!!

We've had a great Thanksgiving! I cooked a Thanksgiving lunch of chicken, stuffing, cranberry relish, rolls, mashed potatoes, pie, and cookies! We had some friends over for lunch, since we didn't make it home to Missouri this year. 
 My little turkey....a year ago we were just making all the announcements! That was one quick year!

Now, if you'll excuse me, we must get back to planning our black Friday strategy!

What a Difference a Year Can Make!

This week last year we gave this onesie to my sister to make our big announcement! I can't believe it's already been a year!

Yep, Chris is officially out of his 20s! I guess that means he's actually an adult!
 I gave him his gifts from Asher and I in the morning...hence the pjs here

To celebrate, we went with some friends to one of our favorite local restaurants for dinner. Then we came back to the house for cake and presents.
 On our way to dinner!

 Chris with his cake! He wanted me to make 'Lek's Strawberry Cake'. It turned out pretty great! I love how Asher is eyeing the cake in this pic!

 Chris with one of his gifts from the Sharps (insert my eye roll here)

A quick family pic...and for the record, even though it looks it, my son really isn't in pjs all day! It was kind of late when we got home from dinner so I changed him into jammies so when he crashed he'd be ready!

Well, Chris had a pretty great day, and says he doesn't feel any different....luckily, I have a while until I catch up!!

Sunday Morning Silliness

We bought him his jumparoo last month and he's finally figured out how to really get going! However, he's still just a little short so he gets going will just one foot! It's soo hilarious!! Plus, I think that crazy hair just adds to the hilarity of it all!

Free Christmas Gifts??

That's right! If you're looking to score some free and super cheap Christmas gifts you NEED to join No More Rack! Use This Link and you'll even get $10 free to get started with! Their deals change every day at noon (11am central). They're deals range from electronics, clothing, make-up, and toys! Pretty much a little of everything! And from time to time they even offer 100% free deals! I've scored an iphone case, and screen protector free. Right now they have a $20 gift card to YMI Jeans completely free!
Also, for the month of November they have insanity deals that pop up randomly that are AMAZING!! You have to be on your toes to score one, though (which I haven't been just yet). These deals include a ps3 for $27 and an iphone 4s for $51.12. Both of which would make Chris a great Christmas gift if I'm lucky enough to score one!

5 Months!!

I'm really not sure how it's possible that 5 months have gone by! He's becoming such a big guy now! He's so happy most all of the time (minus last week while he had a cold)! So here's some info on our Asher:
  • He just discovered Emma and giggles when she does her tricks or runs around
  • He rolls from back to belly like a pro (I think he'll be a rolly polly by this time next week)
  • He really wants to be walking and loves to stand on our laps constantly
  • He loves being read to (I  have On The Night You Were Born memorized!)
  • He usually sleeps 6 hours then 3 hours, then cuddles in bed with mom and dad until we finally get up
Now to the pictures! When we sat him in the chair to take them, he just grinned and grinned!

We haven't started any solids yet. He really doesn't seem interested and is totally content with mommy's milk. I plan on waiting until 9 months as long as he's stays satisfied! We're really looking forward to his first Christmas, and have been busy planning!!


I've been horrible at updating here!! I really thought when I had a baby I'd post all the time because I'd have so much to say and share! However, instead, I have so much going on that this has really fallen behind! So here are a few updates on our family:
1. We moved again....we went ahead and bought a house this time. If you remember, we moved 2 days before Asher was born. It was great renting that big house, but the landlords weren't honest about the situation, which meant we had to get out asap. Rental property is really hard to come by so we just bought our own place! It's a newer house, but still had all construction white walls so I've been busy decorating and planning (Pics to come).
2. We took a trip home to Missouri! Asher and I spent two weeks there, which was great! My sister got married, and our brothers finally got to meet Asher! So all in all it was a fantastic trip! I'll post pics of that soon too....a month late!
3. Another reason I've been MIA is that Asher had is 4 month growth spurt--which was kind of rough. Then last week we survived (barely) his first cold! It wasn't even a bad cold, but the poor guy was miserable!

Well, those are the biggest updates, I think! I promise to post pics soon...Asher turned 5 months this week!
