Purple Hand and an Ink pad

I have been wanting to get a Jayden's hand print but I just keep forgetting so, finally this week I did it and after 5 trys I finally got a decent one. The only problem is I think my ink might not have been the right one to use because it won't come off!! Oops! I have been scrubbing like crazy trying to get the ink off and well its a slow process...At least I got the hand print..

Go Gators...

Today was the gator game and it was a blast! Geoffrey, Jonathon, Missy, and I went together and we had a great time. It was a great date night, but I did miss my little gator at home. I love watching football and going to the game is always fun. We had good seats and the weather was cool so it was nice to be outside. After the game we stopped in Ocala and got the world's largest pizza ;) (well at least it seemed like it, it took up pretty much the whole backseat)..The best part about going to the game is that we WON! I said its great to be a Florida Gator!!

Yummy sweet potatoes
This thanksgiving we went to Linda's. It was great, we had a lot of good food and a lot of family there. It was especially nice because my dad,step mom, step brother, and great grandma were there. After dinner we made ginger bread houses to give out to people, and we did a grateful activity that involved everyone in the room. We all had to say what we were thankful for and what kind of service we were going to do this holiday season. There was really a sweet spirit that was felt there. Thanks Missy! Oh how I love the Holidays!! This was Jaydens first Thanksgiving and it was so much fun..I know that he loved it (or at least the sweet potato part) he just couldn't get enough! I know that there is not nearly enough room to list all of my blessings and for that I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father.

Hip Hip Hooray!!!

The proof is in the Picture!!
What's that? Do you hear the cheers of an elated mommy and daddy? Well if you listen close I bet you can hear it because he did it!!! He DRANK A BOTTLE!! Hooray Hooray!!!! For those of you that don't know it has been such a struggle for him to take a bottle, he has been fighting and fighting it and tonight he did it for the second time!

The Shirt Says it All

So I bought this shirt at GAP and just think that its the funniest thing since he is just the biggest flirt with the girls...

A Weekend Away

At the Omni Ready to go!! Daddy and Jayden at the Hard Rock!!
Getting our feet wet in the Hot Tub

This weekend we decided to get away while we can, so we packed up the car and went to Orlando. I know I know Orlando is not really getting away but it sure makes for a fun trip. We stayed at the Omni in Champions Gate and loved it. The hotel is so nice and the weather was so beautiful. Saturday we went to Downtown Disney and walked around, then off to Universal to eat at the Hard Rock Cafe(for the best quesadillas ever!!), and then its time to shop... Jayden was great and didn't even fuss which is pretty unusual for him, I think he enjoyed all the different sights and sounds. Sunday we went to church (which was such a change because the ward was so small, maybe 50 chairs)and then we spent the rest of the day snuggling, going for walks, and just enjoying our family time. It was great!! Needless to say we are already planning our next weekend getaway!!

One of my favorite things...

There are many things that I enjoy doing, like making cookies, shopping, hanging with my family, but one of my favorite things is snuggling my boy. I am so blessed to have my little angel baby in my life. One of the best snuggle times is when we are rocking outside and just watching the world go by..I love just holding him tight..sometimes I will even loose track of time and we will rock for close to an hour! We rock and talk about the things we see, or stories I know or I tell him about before he was here. Sometimes he will look up at me with this sweet smile that says "mom I love this snuggling too" it is that moment that I think to myself what did I do before he was here? How did I go without this? I am so grateful for my Jayden and the blessings he brings to our family, I am grateful to know that the snuggling can keep on even into the eternities because we are a forever family.

This morning we met our friends(Kasey,Atticus,Wyatt,Aimee,Colin,Jacob) at the park. It was so much fun! The weather was great and everyone seemed to have a good time. I just love days like this. Jayden loved the swings and even made some new friends. Hannah and Paula met us up there and even got in on the fun. I think there will be many more park dates in our future..

This past week Jayden started solids well kinda, I guess rice cereal counts(wouldn't be my first choice). I was so excited to give it to him I just love watching him experience things for the first time. It is so funny watching his face change to different expressions. I just can't wait to start to be officially able to feed him other things...

what a good driver;)

Today was our Fall Festival and it went great! I had it at the Farm and we had all kinds of games like volleyball, cupcake walk, hayrides, and a pie eating contest. I think that it was definitely a hit. I love my calling and being able to plan fun activities for the ward that can bring us closer together. I am so grateful for the members who helped out and who came and supported the activity. Most of all I am grateful for Geoffrey who helps me out with whatever odd job I ask him to do just so my activity can happen. This weekend he was a furniture mover,a grocery getter,a decorator, hay ride conductor, and my right hand man!! Geoffrey thank you for all your help, you are really a great husband I love you soo much!! Can't wait for the Christmas party, when we can do it all over again!!

Trick or Treat

Halloween turned out to be a great day, we spent the morning snuggling up to our little pumpkin, in the afternoon we had a Halloween photo shoot, and then later that evening we took our little monkey trick or treating(well we stopped by the grandparents houses) It was fun to get him all dressed up in his costume, he looked so cute even though he was sick. I think that I took close to 50 pictures of him and he was great through all of them!(what a trooper). Grandma Linda's Party was the best! I love going there and I am glad that it has become a family tradition! Halloween was such a sweet day for our family because last year it was when we found out we were pregnant with our sweet baby boy! What a great day!
