Family Pictures 2010

We had family pictures taken back in November. I love how they turned out! Blake was being a typical active little 2 year old so I was worried that we weren't going to get any that turned out good! He was too busy discovering everything to pay attention to the camera! He is the best thing in our lives! We have been blessed in so many ways since he has come to our family! He has the best sense of humor and having conversations with him is my favorite part of the day!

Blake just enjoying his Thanksgiving feast. He had to have those silly glasses on the entire meal! So I have been a little M.I.A lately?? I have not been neglecting my blog on purpose I have just been SOO busy lately! I took a few days off of work the week of Thanksgiving which was nice but before that is when the craziness began. I got a promotion at work which I interviewed for the week of Thanksgiving. I am proud of this promotion because I have worked really hard the past two years to get where I am at and it feels good! I feel very blessed because my job has afforded us a lot of peace of mind in these crazy economic times. I am fortunate to have a husband that supports me and appreciates how hard I work. My family came for Thanksgiving and it was real good to see them. I hadn't seen my sister in over a year so it was fun to catch up. She spent the night and we stayed up and talked and giggled like we were little girls again. My grandpa came as well and I sure do love him. We have always had such a special relationship and I was so happy that he was able to spend time with Blake. Thanksgiving and Christmas are always my favorite time of year because I am reminded of the importance of having an attitude of gratitude. Everyday I realize how blessed and lucky I am to have the life and family that I do. I want to teach Blake about loving others and serving people less fortunate than we are. This year Mitch and I decided that we are going to take gifts to the children's hospital and have Blake hand out some gifts to the kids. Every year I want to take him to do something that requires him to give and love others in need. I haven't quite worked out all the details yet but hopefully everything works out. Running has sort of gone to the back burner because of the promotion and the holidays but I am still determined to finish this goal! Either way I am going to participate in the run even if I have to walk some of it... although I really hope I can do it without walking! Wish me luck! :)
