5 Years

Our Anniversary was on the 28th and we have been married for 5 years! Hard to believe it has been 5 years. I just wanted to tell Justin Happy Anniversary! I love you and you are a wonderful husband and Dad! We are all thankful for you!
Addi is walking! She is getting really good at it she can walk across the living room or pretty much where ever she wants to go. She has not figured out how to stand up by herself so she will pull up on something then off she goes. She is also starting to say alot of things she is best at Momma hehe but the funniest thing that she does is bark she barks and then just laughs it is so funny!

Merry Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas. We ended up with 14 inches of snow! I couldn't believe it. Justin finally made it home at about 9:15 which means it took him over 2 hours to get home it usually takes him around 30 but he made it safe and he picked my mom up on the way. We opened gifts when he got home and we got so many nice things!! Addi got so much that she did not end up opening all of it on Christmas Day. On thing Addi did get for Christmas was a big fat lip she fell and bumped her mouth and her bottom teeth cut her top lip you can see in picture above poor girl! After Justin shoveled the driveway we just hung out and waited for Janie and Brian to come over. Amy did not get to come because she had to work. When Janie and Brian came we opened gifts all over again. Justin smoked a ham and it turned out so good. We had a great Christmas and we have so much to be thankful for I hope very one had a Merry Christmas!


Dreamin' of a White Christmas

This morning when we woke up it was sleeting and it did this until about mid morning then it started snowing and snowing and snowing! This is a couple of hours after it started. The wind is really blowing so we have drifts in the backyard that are at least half way up the fence. So needless to say Addi and I spent Christmas Eve at home together with the dogs. Justin is working today and last I talked to him he had not been to the station in about 5 hours! He said the roads are really bad. Most of the calls that they go on...maybe 85 %...are sick calls people can't breath people fall in the floor you get the idea on a normal call EMSA our ambulance service also responds to these calls but the fireman have to go because they can get there so much faster anyways if you call for a "sick call" now EMSA will not respond and if it is a call that EMSA will respond to the wait is at about 1 1/2 hours...yikes. So I guess Justin will have a long night. I hope he gets to come home in the morning. If someone can not make it to the station they have to stay...I hope he is here for Christmas!!!

Addi sitting by the stockings she is looking at the bow that she just pulled out of her hair.
Addi is very interested in the snow she went to look out the doors several times today. The dogs are not so fascinated by the snow I have to pick them up and set them outside ha

So we have had a good Christmas Eve just hanging out! I got my house cleaned and ready to go and I even put Addi's Christmas present together! Now time to relax and watch Christmas Story...one of my favorites hope everyone had a great Christmas Eve and has a great Christmas tomorrow! Please pray that Justin has a safe night. Merry Christmas

Christmas Lights

Last night after I got of work, we picked my mom up and grabbed some diner and then went looking at Christmas lights. They were so pretty. We went to the area where my mom has been working and they have older VERY big houses. I loved these trees. I think even Addi liked them :). Yesterday when I was leaving for work I made her a bottle and put her in the bed with Justin and I was telling her bye and she looked at me and as plain as day said BYE BYE...it made my day!


Some More Christmas in Amarillo

On Saturday, we had Christmas with Dorothy's side of the family. Dorothy has a HUGE family and is a good sport about having everyone at her house. Justin said he counted around 40 people. Addi was so good...she loved everyone went to everyone and just made her rounds. She got this cute little teapot. Oh and does anyone notice anything about the last post I figured out how to turn the pictures!!! The best part of the weekend...this morning Addi woke up around 6:30 (she only sleeps good in her bed she is not the baby sleeping at the restaurant or in her stroller) so I went and got her and brought her to bed with me and Justin and she fell asleep for about another 2 hours it was so sweet laying there holding her! Oh and guess who got really good at her walking this weekend I really think by the end of the week she will be walking EVERYWHERE!!!

Christmas in Amarillo

This weekend we headed to Amarillo to have a little Christmas. The first night we went to Justin's grandparents house and ate some yummy fajitas and did our gift exchange.

Here is Addi and her Daddy aren't they cutie pies!!

Justin and his Grandma

Justin and his mom

Addi and her mommy...I just love that little girl...
We had a really busy and nice weekend visiting everyone. Like I said we did Christmas with the Mann side of the family on Friday and got to spend time with them. Addi was really good and she got a very cute gumball machine and some new bows for her hair.

Sonny and Cher

Ok here are the pics I was telling you about...last weekend Justin's Christmas party at Wayest was a Rock Star Christmas so we went as Sonny and Cher. I was disappointed that we did not win the contest Billy Ray beat us :(. There was a male and a female winner and Justin thinks that he lost because some voted him best male and some best female haha

Me and my friend Cody who DID NOT dress up and looked all cute...last year I was gigantic prego this year Sonny
Justin and Billy Ray


Sonny and Cher ...and could someone please tell me how to turn these freakin pictures!!!!!!!!!


We are ready for Christmas

We are all ready for Christmas!! I got all my shopping done yesterday and Justin finished all of his on Thursday. Addi had her pictures with Santa...and no crying and they look so cute! It is such a relief to be done so we can enjoy some time together! Tonight we are going to Justin's Christmas party for Wayest and it is a rock star Christmas so you have to dress up as rock stars...Justin and I are going as Sonny and Cher and Justin is going to be Cher I will let you see some pictures tomorrow!!


Justin and I got a membership at the YMCA so Justin took Addi yesterday so he could work out. SO that means that Addi had to go to the day care!!! She did fine and didn't even cry when he left her...(I think he was a little sad that she took it so well).

Everyone has been asking when we are having Addi's first birthday party. The day that works best for Justin and I is January 10th so I will be sending out invitations later but that is the date...ONE YEAR OLD!!!??


Addi is 11 months

I haven't put a picture of Sherman and Zoey lately so here they in their favorite spot.
How cute is Addi? I think she looks so cute in her coat and she can now walk if you hold one of her hands. She doesn't do it every time and only when she feels like it. She is so big!!

Yep Addi loves the Guymon Tigers!

Well on Saturday, Addi was 11 months old. I say it every month but I can not believe how fast it is going! She weighs 19 lbs and still has two teeth. She is trying to walk she has taken about 3 steps in a row but then remembers how much faster she can crawl. She is more interested in food...especially what we are eating she has had mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and seems to like everything. Wonder if she will be walking at Christmas???


The weekend is almost over :(

Just a pic of my two favorite people...aren't they cutie pies!

So the rest of the weekend...Justin was scheduled to work on Friday and Sunday but he volunteered to work over time on Saturday...meaning he went to work at 7 a.m. on Friday morning and he will not be home until Monday morning at around 7:30. So Addi and I had to find somethings to occupy our minds. Yesterday was really hard. Addi is getting her teeth and she was so fussy. It is so hard on days like this and it is really frustrating to me. I sometimes wish that when I came home from work I could find Justin on the verge of tears and listen to him say how frustrated he is..hehe.. but today was MUCH better. We got up at 6:45 not my favorite time to get up on the weekend but anyways we went to see Justin at the station and then came home so Addi could take a nap then went to the mall and toys r us with my mom. It is so nice to get out and have someone hold your baby when you try on clothes. I got a lot of shopping done and Justin and I are going next weekend to go shopping for Addi...how fun will that be??!!! Just wondering if this happens to only me when I have extra money or when I am looking for something to wear to an upcoming event I FIND NOTHING suppose to be shopping for other people or no money I FIND EVERYTHING!! Hope everyone had great weekend.

Just a quick update on the photographer with big thong...Addi and I went back to store yesterday and she was in the front to store giving out coupons and she says oh you guys are back today are you going to smile today to my delight Addi just gave her a blank stare hehe. Ok I'm done being irritated with her.



This is the dress we made for Addi. This is what little miss Addi has been up to...She is 10 months old now (11 next week). She can say mama dada and hi. She still just has her bottom two teeth but I can feel the top two cutting thru. She took two steps about 2 weeks ago. She had her Christmas pictures taken today. She is wonderful so much fun and now she is taking a nice long nap!!!
Oh by the way is pictures stressful to anyone else??? They did not go well and I apparently got the girl who has never worked with a baby before and I was so sick of seeing her thong by the end of the session that I just wanted to give her a giant wedgie!!!

Happy Thanksgiving

We went to Amys for Addis first Thanksgiving! We had a really good time. Addi had some turkey mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie yummy!!!!

The weekend before Thanksgiving we went to Amarillo to see Justins family. Dorothy and I made her a dress that turned out really cute. Hope everyone had a great day and have many things to be thankful for. Justin and I have so many things to be thankful for. I am thankful for Justin and Addi. I am thankful all of my family is well. Justin and I are TRUELY blessed!

Date Nights...that's right I said date NIGHTS!

One of the many nice things about my mom being here is that she wants to babysit!!!! Justin and I have been able to go out two weekends in a row! We have found it hard to have time alone together and it is so nice to spend time with Justin and have diner alone! The first weekend we went to eat sushi and then went to a movie. The sushi was so good and we tried several new kinds and just sat and relaxed then went and saw Law abiding citizen which was very good. The next weekend we went out with Janie and Brian to a piano bar in bricktown it was really nice to hang out and do things that we use to do.

I am really glad that my mom is here. It is time for things to go her way and it is so nice to have your mom close by. She started her job last week at a flower shop and seems like it will be a good thing. When we moved into our house I was in the first grade and my dad took our picture in front of the house so we decided to take them once again. It was sad that the house won't be there for us to go home to and I was sad but it turned out better than I thought and am thankful that my mom is here close to all of us now and just because we can't go to our "home" anymore doesn't mean that my dad is forgotten. He is here with each of us and I still think of him everyday.


Well lets get everyone updated!! It has been a long time since I have blogged...when I started it was so much fun and I loved looking at it well I guess I have been a little busy and just got bored with it so I am going to try to do better. So lets start with Halloween...

I made Addi a Halloween dress to wear and was not going to do a costume because we were suppose to go to Stillwater for the OSU Texas game. I was shopping one day on my lunch hour and Once Upon a Child had their costumes for really cheap so I could not resist the bee. Addi looked so cute in the bee costume.
See cute little bee!! Well our plans changed for Halloween weekend and Janie and I went to Guymon the Thursday before Halloween and Justin and Brian came the next weekend so that we could MOVE MY MOM! Yes that's right she is finally here. I have to tell Justin thank you for all the hard work he did to get my mom here she would not be here if it was not for him and Brian and I did not hear a one gripe from him. So we worked all weekend to get everything done. On Halloween night my mom and I took Addi to carnival downtown. Downtown Guymon pretty much says it all...it sucked oh well Addi will like it better next year anyways!!


Well it has been awhile again and I am not sure why. Not alot going on here. Justin was off all weekend so that was nice. On Friday, we cleaned and got all the laundry done. How nice is it to sit and watch a movie in your clean house? We went and got new phones and then on Saturday Justin and Brian and some other friends went to the OU Texas game. He had a great time and me and Addi just hung out at home. Today has been a nice lazy Sunday...my favorite kind of Sunday!

UMMM Frosting!!

For Justins Birthday he wanted a cookie cake with the frosting between the two cookies so we has one made for him. A couple of days later, I was eating a piece and I just can't do all the frosting so while I was setting on the couch I scraped all the frosting off and put it in my napkin. When I was done I folded the napkin up and put it in my empty cup and sat it on the floor. Yes because I was too lazy to get up and do it right away. Well I got distracted and Addi was being really still and really quiet those are two bad signs....

Guess Addi is an OU fan!!!

Justin and I were going on our date night and my mom stayed with Addi for us.
