Happy Turkey Day!

We are headed out in a few hours to Logan to spend Thanksgiving with Joel's family. We are all pretty excited to be there. It's been almost a year since the last time we were even in Logan. I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!!! This year Joel and I have a lot to be thankful for. Some of the obvious are that he still has a job unlike most people who are struggling to find one, actually we are so grateful that he is starting a new one. We are also grateful to have such a beautiful little girl who even at times drives us totally crazy, we are so thankful to have her in our life's. The other most important thing we are thankful for is the wonderful family who we have and who love us so much. I don't know what we would do without all of our family!!! There is so much more to be thankful for.........but not enough time to type it all out!!!

3 Weeks Away.......

Yes it's true in 3 weeks Joel will be headed off on a plane early morning and will be leaving Peyton and I both behind. O how I wish I could go with him.......okay maybe not with him because I am sure it would be really boring and not fun living in a hotel for 3.5 months. But I really, really wish I could just drop everything here and run home to my parents for 3.5 months. But since I have a really great job here I can't exactly do that.

With Joel getting ready to leave soon I have been getting the house in order for him to go. By that I mean I have been getting every kind of lock for t he doors, new curtains to hide behind, sticks for all my windows so nobody can sneak through the windows at night, and all the extra things like mace and a big knife since Joel won't let me have a gun. I know it sounds foolish with all of that but there have been so so many break-ins in the last month that I am a little scared for my life and Peyton's. I know we will be fine but I am taking extra precautions to make sure we stay safe. Nobody better mess with me!!!

Merry Christmas Early!

I know it's still over a month away but I had to share with all what I got for Christmas. Yes, I was bad and got it early. With Joel leaving in exactly 3 weeks (tear, tear) I thought I would get it early and put it all together. Also my parents were in town this last weekend and they were here to help us put it together. So you may be asking what I got.........Well my parents and Joel all pitched in for this.........
I LOVE IT!!!! Joel and I have been needing a new dinning room table for some time now. We have had the same one since we first got married and it has been through a lot. Even with me re-painting it almost 2 years ago I still needed to part away from it. Thanks again so much Mom, Dad, and Joel for the wonderful table!!!

Update on Peyton

I just thought I would give everyone a little update on Peyton and her collarbone. She has been out of the sling since last Saturday. The doctor said she only needed to wear the sling for 2 weeks and see how she is after that, if she acts like she still needs the sling then she can wear it. She is still miking her injury when ever I ask her to do something and will say "my arm hurts." I think she says it as an excuse not to do something. The one thing that I have noticed about the whole injury is since she got injured she has been a whiner. She hardly ever use to whine and now she whines all the time. I am hoping she gets over that soon before it drives me crazy.
