Happy Thanksgiving!

"Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his faithful love endures forever!"  Psalm 107:1

Today and everyday I have so much to be thankful for. I couldn't even begin to list everything! 

We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

I'm VERY thankful that I have got some cute pictures of my kids together! Ha!

Funny Pictures and 11 months!

So, yesterday we attempted to go outside and take a few pictures of the kids for our Christmas card. It was pretty frustrating! Ha! Wells wants to eat EVERYTHING!!! Here are just a few and they are ALL like this!

These are so funny because you can watch her find something and then eat it..then me running up to dig it out of her mouth! Ha!

I don't think we will ever get a good one of them together again!!

Wells was 11 months on Sunday so I wanted to put a few things down she is doing! 
She is starting to walk! She takes about 5-7 steps right now and could walk if she didn't flop down so she could speed crawl! She is starting to eat real food pretty good and only takes a bottle at night. She loves her sippy cup and I will probably take her bottle away when she turns one. I think she would do good drinking some from a cup right before bedtime. She loves whole milk and I am starting to just pump once a day!! Wahoo! I feel so free! She still takes 2 naps a day, goes to bed at 8 but she has been waking up early since the time change. I will leave her in bed until Finn wakes up and she just plays quietly. She is the sweetest little thing but is turning into a little firecracker. She actually bit Finn last night because he took a toy away from her. Yikes! I think I am going to have my hands full with her! They usually play really good together and he calls her to follow him all day. 

She found the toilet paper in the bathroom.

She has 2 teeth on bottom and almost 4 on top!

I can't believe she is almost 1! I am trying to get her birthday party together and if Jared would hurry up with our basement project I would feel much better with the party planning! We are having the party here in the basement and he has ALOT to do in a month!! 

Please say a prayer for Jared with the job search! He has a few things in the works and I know God will guide him in the right direction. As stressful as this process has been, I know this was all part of God's plan for us and for Jared!

Crazy week!!

Well this has been one crazy week! Jared is jobless, we went on a cruise and got back just in time for trick-or-treating with the kids! Me being stressed is an understatement! I think I have a stomach ulcer now from stress and we don't have any insurance until next week. Please keep us in your prayers as Jared finds a new job. I know God answered my prayers {maybe not exactly the way I wanted}, and in the long run everything will work out for the best for our family. 

We decided to still go on our cruise and we had a really good time until the last night!!! We had really bad winds and the ride was VERY rough. I didn't sleep at all and I was pretty much flipping out{and praying ALL night}. Of course my cell didn't work at all so I wanted to check the weather to see what was going on, and had no way of doing this. I was stuck on a ship, in the middle of the ocean and we were rocking all over the place! I think that added to my stomach ulcer!!

This was out our "set sail" party. Let me just say this was a Budlight party cruise{compliments of Jared's previous job!} so everything was a party! Ha! It was pretty interesting to sit back and watch everyone{of ALL ages!}. There was a 82 year old woman having her a good ole time! 

This was our ship docked at Nassau, Bahamas!

This was the night we sailed out to our private island, Coco Cay. We were supposed to get a private concert from Pittbull {I had no idea who that was but I heard his song about a million times on the cruise!}.  He got rained out so we never heard him!

We had a dress-up Halloween party. All the costumes were so funny! This couple said it took them a month to make these all out of beer boxes!

We were being taken to our little private island! This was great until we got on the island and a bad rain storm came up. We had to pile on this boat to get back to our ship in VERY rough conditions. This was another time I prayed very hard to make it to our ship safely!

Here are a few pictures from Halloween! I was SOOO ready to be home with my kids!!

Here is little Huckleberry Finn!

My sweet little lady bug!

Sawyer, Finn, Harper and Wells!
