Thanksgiving 2011

I had thanksgiving dinner here today. My Mom and Dad did the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. I did mashed potatoes and gravy, candied sweet potatoes, corn, peas, macaroni and cheese, and bisquits. Tonya made 2 peanut butter pies. Jamie made peanut butter fingers. It was goooood! I think it went pretty good today, despite Kaylynn being fussy because she's sick yet again with a cold. Pretty congested in the chest this time. My poor baby!
Even with everything that's happened in the last 3 weeks or so that seems bad, I know I am still Thankful for alot of things in my life!!

Just missing my other sister Jamie and her boyfriend Rick.

Jesse and Tonya. Expecting a baby boy, Julian in Feb.

My niece Brooke. She is hilarious!! She's at a very fun and cute stage right now! :)

Everyone checking out the black friday deals! LOL.


These are the finished produce of the curtains that Aunt MaryLou made for Kaylynn's room. I had picked out and bought the fabric and she whipped these up for me!! They turned out great!

Plus it is kinda thicker material, so hopefully it keeps the cold out. Thanks Aunt MaryLou!!

Kind of like a plush, velor material.


Sitting up in my big girl seat!

Yummy cereal!!

Did she eat any? :)

Crash- Bang- Boom!

Last Thursday I had just gotten home from a VERY BAD day at work. David was over at his Dad's. I wasn't home but 5-10 mins when I heard this loud crashing sound, or some gunshots going off and it was coming from the garage! I called David to come home because I was scared. I said someone or something was in the garage! He then asked who all was over there. I said, just Kaylynn and I!!! He said, well there is a black car in our turnaround. I looked and there was NO ONE there!! So I called back and said ok, your really freaking me out, I looked and there is no one there! So he said, I am telling you someone is there I am LOOKING at the car right now! So, needless to say I was scared outta my wits! SO when he got home and I slowly opened the door into the garage he said, I found the car, well I instantly saw what happened.
The neighbor's colbalt's emergency brake doesn't work and it rolled dow the hill, over our fairly new-planted pine tree and into our garage!! And they had no idea either!! You could see them going about there business in their kitchen. David had to go knock on the door and tell them. So, I wasn't nuts!! It did quite a bit of damage. There is a huge hole in it too. We heard from her insurance, we are waiting to have someone come and appraise/ascess the damage. Thankful it wasn't the house, but still! UGH.
Busted up.

The hole.

Dented the whole side of it.

See the tire tracks? Ran right over the tree!

Tonya's Baby Shower

A few shots of the baby shower me and my Sister and Mom threw for my sister Tonya. She is having a boy, Julian. Julian is after my Dad's Father, that passed away when my Dad was like 15 years old. She is due Feb 7th. This will be the first nephew on my side! :)

Mom with her 2 granddaughters.

Just a fraction of the loot!


Tonya's coworkers.


More guests.

Playing games!

Going through just part of the gifts we got her! We also got her a diaper champ filled with goodies, plus a glider chair for the nursery!

New Name

I fiddled with the backround and this is what I came up with. I didn't have any luck finding something cute and Christmasy, but I do like this! I also came across this title for the blog while looking for backrounds. I rather like it. What do you think?

Trying to update my backrounds and such on here. Takes a bit of time to figure it all out. Bear with me it'll probably take me a few nights to figure it out!

Our Lil' Dumplin'

Here are several updated pics of Kaylynn. Most of them speak for themselves. Enjoy!

This is the hairbow holder I made her! I think it turned out pretty cute!

All the hairbows I have bought so far from Gigi La' Bean. A local gal who makes all this cute stuff!

Hung up the canvas sign a friend from work got her.

Fell asleep playing.


Got to be one of my favorite pics.
