Gobble Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

I wish you could hear Liam say "gobble gobble" in this blog. He's the cutest kid ever!! We had a wonderful time at SoSo's house for dinner this year. The food was the best I think we've ever had. Nanny made stuffing from scratch with sausage. I don't even like stuffing, but I ate about 3 helpings. She also smoked the turkey, and that was the best I've ever had too! My whole side of the family was there, except Dave, Sherry and Conner. It was really nice to all be together. Here are some pictures of our really fun day!

Holy cow... alert the press... Natalie and Brynn are doing dishes? Is this right?
Marcia's beautiful pies. The cake on the left is spice cake with toffee icing. Ohh, so good! It was SoSo's b-day so we got cake too!

I guess we'll start getting ready for Christmas now!

A Slow November

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. I think you can always tell when I'm into a book because I don't blog for a while. I've been reading John Grisham's Playing for Pizza. If you like football, it was a great book. I really liked it!! If you're not so much into the sport, I can see how it might be a little boring. Anyway, November has been pretty blah. I'm kind of glad though, maybe that means my life is settling down a little!

The store is kicking butt, and I think kicking Jeremy's butt! He's working a ton, but loving every minute of it. I've been working Sundays to give him a break and some time with Liam. I think they both appreciate that.

Like I said, not much has been going on other than Liam is really getting so big. We had to get tubes put in his ears about two weeks ago and he has changed. He is talking so much and understanding so much better. I was really trying to believe he wasn't struggling, but now that we've had it done, I feel a little guilty waiting so long. At least now it's done and we can go on from here!

This was the only picture I could get of him at the hospital. He wasn't able to eat and we had to wake him up really early, so needless to say he was not in the mood for pictures. These are his hospital jammies. He actually really liked them! Not so much the socks though!

Other than a harmless surgery, it's been really low key. We've been starting potty training. He and I are not so much in synch on this yet. He "tries" many times a day, but has yet to actually get some potty in the toilet. They say he is trying at day care too, but I think this will be a long road ahead! These are pictures of Liam with his new big boy britches on. He is showing them to you!

I kept calling the britches panties, and Jeremy was having a cow! Being a girl, I had no other word for them. Kim in my office suggested britches, so there we go! Ohhh, cute britches Liam!!! :)

By the way... I cut all of his hair off. I know it's ugly, I won't do it again. You live and learn!!!

The sound track...

I figured out how to add a playlist to my blog. I tried to pick songs that reminded me of Liam and my family. I hope you enjoy my selection...

Liam's Halloween

I decided to put some of Liam's Halloween pictures all in the same blog. There's not much to post since Liam's frankly as excited about Halloween as his mother! He refused to wear his pumpkin costume by screaming "NO PU-KAN" a billion times before his Halloween party at school. Therefore I took the costume back and he was nothing for Halloween. Then when I tried to take him Trick-or-Treating, he decided he would rather "Wat Mitey" (watch Mickey) so we did that and just passed out candy. The only Halloween-ish thing we did right was carve a pumpkin. He actually really liked that and was super cute during the carve. Sadly, all of our pumpkins were stolen off of our porch the next day. The a** h**** were nice enough to leave Liam's jack-o-lantern though.

Liam really enjoying his school Halloween party... you can tell he was really getting jiggy with his bad self!

The final product...

Happy Halloween at the Office

Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE MAC! Little black pots of color totally make me happy! Anyway, this is Amber who was brought into my life as a notary, but really is a super cool person, and she's a MAC Pro! She came to our office and painted our faces for Halloween so we looked Super Bad! Here are some really cool pictures of my very best friends. Note the amazing make up case on the desk! Seriously...

Me and Melder! (Melissa Elder, but I like to call her Melder!)

Our cool faces!
