I never thought I could fall in love with a cowboy, but I must say.... This one has stole my heart!
My parents got this for Keyton for Christmas, and he just looks so cute in it. I love this little guy so much. I can't believe my baby is turning 3 in January! It feels like yesterday when they placed him in my arms after having him. Since his birthday is next month, I am dedicating my blog to him! I love you Keyton. Thanks for the smiles you bring to my face everyday! I hope you have a Happy Birthday!

This Christmas!

We had an interesting Christmas this year. Trevor had to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so I decided since he doesn't get home until late, we would just go home to my parent's for Christmas. So, me, Trevor, and Keyton did our Christmas the night of the 23rd. Keyton got lots of fun stuff his favorites were his barn and his cannon shooter (thanks Aunt Sari and Uncle Rick) Then Christmas Eve morning we loaded up and headed to BL. It was fun to be there, but an ironic thing happened. Christmas morning, I got a call from Trevor saying the roads out to work were all closed so he didn't have to go in. Such typical luck for us. So Trevor spent Christmas with his sisters and parents here in Poky and me and Keyton spent it in BL. Figures. Anyway, hope everyone else had a Merry Christmas and have a great New Year!

Tis The Season

I seriously love the Christmas season. My tree has been up since before Thanksgiving, and I sit in front of it every night while reading. We have been going out most nights and looking at Christmas lights, and I think Keyton gets bored before I do. We went to the light parade downtown and that is also another of my favorite things to do. Here is a pic of our whole crew. Trevor neglected to tell me he was taking the picture so my back it turned, but it's cute of everyone else. It was my family, my sister's family, Trevor's sister's family, and my friend Misty's family. Of course Keyton had a blast because his best friends Kudter and Kache were there and his cousins. Who could ask for more trouble? Keyton is very excited about Christmas too, and he is asking Santa for a Better Batter Baseball. He's had his heart set on it for months, but I'm not sure he's been a good enough boy to deserve it. He better do some serious kissing up in the next couple days!
I had to post this picture of Keyton because it's times like these I tell Trevor, "he is your son, not mine. I could never be that wierd." He came running into the kitchen wearing this ensamble and it was all I could do not to pee my pants laughing. Who's kid is this?? Pretty sure he came from the zoo!

We are loving the snow we are getting and Keyton has had to go out and play in it every day. I love to bundle him up to the point where he can't even walk, he just waddles. It makes me laugh. He takes our dog Sevy out with him and could play for hours. I think he is immune to feeling cold, cause he won't come in even when his nose and fingers are bright red.

I hope everyone who is reading, is having as great a Christmas season as we are. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Trying to catch up

I haven't blogged in forever and have really been missing it. We have had a crazy couple of weeks. This year we decided to have Thanksgiving at our house. We had all of Trevor's family and my parents and Grandma Gloria. So, 13 adults and 7 kids later we had a house beaming with life! I was so nervous to cook a turkey, but I actually did it, and it didn't taste too bad either. I love Thanksgiving, mostly because I love good food and family to go with it. It was a good day. The day after Thanksgiving, we took Keyton to the Christmas light parade in old town and it was really fun. He loves any excuse to get to see a fire truck. The next night we were going to go to the BUY-ISU basketball game but Trevor started to get a fever. Of course, he got the stomach flu and threw up that night. Yuck. As we started getting him to feel better and thinking me and Keyton had avoided it, you know what happens... I got the stomach flu too. I had forgotten how bad that sucks! And house and home falls apart when mom is sick. We are still trying to recover!!! Hope you all had a happy Turkey Day!
