Slacker & then some

Man oh man, all of you readers are going to think I am a liar who backs out of everything and is unable to commit to a series... I have now failed you all TWICE ( 30x30 challenge and my thankfulness posts for this month) we are in Montana! We went on our first flight with james (as far as being 7 months old goes, he did great!) we made it safely! James is just eating up all this time he gets to spend with his grandparents. And I think they are all pretty happy too ;) jimmy has been hunting and spending some quality time with his dad. I am on my way to a photo session and then a funeral this afternoon.  I am thankful my momma is going with me, funerals are no fun! There is still no snow here, i was hoping we would get to play in some! My dad is going to get m parents Christmas tree today so that I am able to help them decorate it! (Yay!) 

I am in charge of the pumpkin pie for thanksgiving dinner at my aunts, next week. 

James slept for 12.5 hours the other night... I could get used to THAT! ;)

I am rambling on and procrastinating getting out of these yoga pants and into real clothes to go work.... In 3 degree weather... Brrr. 

I hope and pray you all have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones! Upcoming posts to watch for: the completion of my "thirty days of thankfulness" posts, Christmas decorating, a thanksgiving round up and James first plane ride!! 

Until then, enjoy your turkey induced comas :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Days of Thankfulness Weekend Round Up

Weekends are crazy around these parts! We are flying back home next week, so trying to get everything accomplished before we take off (mainly Jimmy's school work) has been time consuming! 

Here is my thankfulness weekend round-up:

Day 9: I am thankful for my wonderful in-laws. They are nothing but supportive of Jimmy & I. They love our son and pray for us continually! I couldn't ask for any better!

Day 10: I am thankful for my handsome nephews, Brady & Brody! I have not been able to spend as much time with Brody (since we live so far away and he is only a few months older than James). But the time I have been able to love on him is wonderful! And Brady, I just love that boy to pieces and I can't believe how big he is now, almost THREE!! 

Day 11

I am thankful for veterans.

I am thankful for the freedom they fight for and for the life I am able to live because of their sacrifice. 

Day 12: I am thankful for my [parent's] dogs! Maya & Rudy, They are so sunggly and have helped my mom adjust to her "empty nest" with ease!

Day 6 of thankfulness

This photo is (obviously) old.. it was taken the summer before my sophomore year of high school -hello braces- , in West Yellowstone, a week before my dads accident. (a post on that at a later date!)

I absolutely love this photo of my dad and I. I am so thankful for him. He is such a great dad and the best grand-dad I could ever imagine for my son! 

Living so far away from my parents is difficult, more difficult now that I have a baby, but I am so thankful we get to skype and visit them often!

Love ya, daddy! Can't wait to eat some turkey with ya in a few weeks!! :)

Day 4 of Thankfulness

Today I am thankful for Medicine. 
For hospitals. 
For doctors. 
For technology. 

You can read James' birth story HERE

While I fully believe God healed our son, I also believe that he had people in certain places for a reason; to care for him. And for that, Jimmy and I are thankful. :)

I am going to do a series this month! I know it is a classic, but I think it is important to recognize all that we have been blessed with! So for each day I am going to post things I am thankful for! 
Day 1: I am so thankful for my silly, good-looking, supportive, beard growing husband! :)
