This year has been a great year for our family. We had some "trying" times with our house situation, but now that we are in it I can say that it is worth every minute. Our lives have been hectic it seems from the moment we have met, but this year things have started to slow down for us and we have gotten to just enjoy life and being parents.

G is growing in leaps and bounds and I fall more in love with him everyday. This little guy has melted my heart. Yes, he is a boy, don’t get me wrong - he screams at times I wish he wouldn't, he doesn’t always share his toys and yes he still drinks out of a bottle but, he hugs me every time I ask him, he smiles every morning when I pick him up, he snuggles every night with me as I am rocking and his good points out weighs his bad - a million to one and when he calls me momma, the world stops.

J has been a wonderful husband and a great friend this year, living with my parents I didn’t have many opportunities for girl time or girl nights and he so filled that void. He went out of his way to be there for me and to just listen when I was feeling overwhelmed with the house situation. He truly is my best friend and brings out the best in me.

I feel like for the first time that I am truly home, don’t get me wrong I loved our last house, but J had owned it before we got married and as much as he tried to make it feel like it was "ours" , I just never felt completely home.

This year has been a growing year for me, some of my friendships have faded and some new friendships have blossomed and some have stayed the exact same, consistent :-)

I love where we are, I don't know what the new year will bring for us as a family, hopefully a new addition, but no matter what happens I know that I have my best friend at my side and together we make an awesome team.

One thing that I have missed having in my life has been a little sister, but there are a group of friends that have always filled that void in my life and that is the Stewart Girls and Lulu. They mean more to me than I could even explain. Each one of them have a special, but different place in my heart. Jules announced her engagement over Christmas and I can honest say that I was so happy I almost cried. My life has had many turns in it and some friendships have faded, but O am happy to say with this group of girls they have remained the same even though I don't get to see them very often.....

CONGRATS!! JULES - I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU. Looks like this calls for another beach trip!

To all our single friends.

J & I have a couple friends are awesome people that have not found their special "someone" this blog is for them.

I know how it feels to go through the holidays with out someone special and as much as you say that you are doing ok, I know in the back of your mind you wish you had someone special to share this time of the year with. I just want to encourage you to be patient. My mom was my biggest supporter when I was single, she always told me that it is better to be alone than with the wrong person. I use to think in the back of my mind, whatever…. But now that I am married I can say she was and is so right. Short term happiness sometimes is not worth it. I just want to encourage you to be patient, there is nothing better in life than being married to the right person. Life can sometime bring a tidal wave and if you don’t have someone willing to ride the waves with you then life can be pretty miserable. I remember the Christmas before J & I met I went to my parents house and then came home to an empty condo and someone had emailed me and said this could be your last Christmas alone, so enjoy the quietness… little did she know she was right. So to all my single friends, enjoy the quietness… this could be your last Christmas alone.

The ONLY thing G wants for year

Friends it looks like J is going to need your help this year on his new project!

You have to admit this is super cool!

Bowling with Terry

Just some video of Gideon in action with the bowling set Terry brought over last night. Gideon caught on to bowling totally last night, after some earlier practice rounds with Tyler the other day. He perfected his style last night and got his first strike.

Good News!

We only have one Christmas present to buy and then we are done. We do need to wrap and ship, but that is something that can be done rather quickly. Christmas has been so special this year, G makes it so much more fun. We have went on several "field trips" in the evenings so he can see all the neighborhood lights. He truly is adorable, his latest words are Canta Cause... suprising enough he hasn't really bothered any of the presents under the tree.

We are looking forward to this weekend, we have a party and the rest of the time going to just enjoy the Holiday season.

Now if work would just slow down, I would really be happy :-)

Things I have learned this past week..

The past week has been an emotional week for me, we found out on Sunday that we where expecting and ended up miscarrying on Friday. I am a firm believer on things happen for a reason, but at the same time felt a loss.

We only had told a couple people but it amazed me the response we had and the kind thoughts and hugs that where sent our way.

Things that I have learned or should I say things that I was reminded of....

I am a very blessed person, I married a wonderful man whom truly is my best friend.
I have wonderful parents and a great extended family.
Our friends are priceless.
My little boy is perfect.
and life is good, even when you hit a bump in the road.
and God is faithful.
