It's tHe MoSt WoNdErFuL tIME of YeAR!!!!!

So I have been a slacker lately so this might be a little long.... I'll start with Thanksgiving. Oh how we have so much to be thankful for wonderful families, our little boy, our home, our jobs, and most importantly each other and the gospel!!!

So this Thanksgiving Derek's Mom was in town and it was so good to have her. I LOVE HeR!!! She is so knowledgeable and down to earth. She decided that we should all make something for the thanksgiving dinner. I'll start with Derek since he is the jokester of the family. He went to the store and bought all the stuff needed for his vegetable tray. This was what he came up with.....




Whole EvErything!! we suggested to him that he make them bite size....




Donna was willing to teach me how to make rolls.... I can now say I am a PRo!





Our little Brody enjoyed his Thanksgiving too!!!




For some reason Santa really liked Donna!!





So, Christmas is my most favorite time of year!! I absolutely love it!! I have had most of my decorations up since Halloween and I decided to take a few pics for memories...











Well Brody is officially and scooter and a great sitter upper... He scoots across the floor...One day I walked into the living room because I heard paper rumbling and he had literally unwrapped one of his presents and was chewing on the book!!! Here is a few of him sitting up..



So every Christmas since we have been married Derek's mom and her friend Twila make us Christmas cookies and they are sooo soo cool and delicious. They also give each of the grandkids a new ornament. Brody's ornament this year was soo cool. DOnna is a wonderful artist and carved this.......


They also sent Brody his own bag of cookies.....and this is what I found......

'GoOd DeAl' (compliments of Brianne)!!!

Ok, so I was looking at Brianne's blog last night and saw the cute things she got at a sale. As I patiently waited until 9 O'clock when I knew she had to be awake, I text her to see where she got those 'Good Deals'..... Then I was on my way to Kimberly. I too found some good deals!!!



I was soooo excited to find these berries.... I got both 5 foot strands for 3 bucks! Then I got the two Santa's and the merry Christmas sign for $1 and the Santa boot for 3, the pillow for 2 and tin for Brody's Room for 3!!! YAY for good deals..... anyway the last day is Sunday I think!
( A journal entry for me, so bare with me)
And now for the update on our lil monster.... Ok so the staph thing turned out a little worse than we first thought. I found two more little sores on Brody's belly and leg. So I took him in to his pediatrician on Wednesday. The doc immediately said that he thought it was a staph infection just all over his body (not just his hand.) He swabbed it and sent it to the lab. So I was frantic wondering how he got this and what I had done to cause my little boy to get this.
The Doctor described that all of us have the staph bacteria on us and that it is the most common type of bacteria. The problem comes (AlOT in little kids and older people) when the bacteria gets into a break in the skin or a scratch, etc. and causes and infection. He said that this is going around the valley and that little babies have been coming in with abbesses that have to be surgically drained or MRSA. MRSA is a type of Staph that is resistant to antibiotics. Thankfully, Brody has the least worst kind:) we have been hidden from the outside world for a few days, considering this is very contagious. Antibacterial baths 2 times a day, antibiotic orals twice a day, and antibiotic cream twice a day. Now I really know why parents hate when their kids are sick.....

OuCh....

So about a week ago lil' Brody had a little zit like thing on his ring finger knuckle (spelling?). And the disgusting person I am love to pop and squeeze things like that.... Well boy did I learn my lesson. I took him to the doc Sunday morning cuz it just seemed to be getting worse and bigger. The doc said that it could have been a spider bite, then when I squeezed it, it exposed it and caused a staph infection....needless to say I felt horrible and will stop my fetish. Here it is a few days after being on the antibiotics.
But my lil' guy is the best sport!!! So Derek has been testing for the fire department for about the last month or so. It is a very extensive testing process and Derek has made it all the way to the Psych exam. And for those of who are familiar with the process, this is one of the last tests before they hire you. BUT, we are not getting our hopes up. If he doesn't get hired, that is ok. This is the first time he has ever tested and has gotten very far considering! I am very proud, but he is embarrassed by me. So anyway, I thought this shirt fit the situation very well to support Derek!!!

So little Rees got to come play with us today and we had so much fun! She had to warm up to us but after that she was so happy. SHe wanted to get in Brody's bouncer thing so I put her in it, and she loved it!..............


P.S. Yes, that is a CHriStMas tree, and yes I am Starting early!!! I love X-MaS!!!

Thanks for letting her come over Brianne...!
ALso, I started on Brody's room today.... What a chore... I'm not even half way there yet but I think it is coming along. I ordered a bed set off ebay and got it for soooo sooo cheap, and I'm really excited for it to come. I will take more pics as I go!!! Oh yeah and the best part, I got this crib for 30 bucks and it's basically brand new and I think it is pretty cute! YAY for garage sales!

FaMiLiEs ArE FoReVeR......

Ok, this is soo so so so so mean, but so cute and funny at the same time. Whenever I call Derek's name to help me out or grab something for me, I say it in an annoying voice. So lately whenever I do it, he does this annoying voice back and says my name......Brody obviously thinks it's annoying too....
