Christmas card suggestions-Remember our Troops

Hey all, I think this is neat. If you can afford to make out just one more card... I am a little bias since hubby is military, but it means so much to them to get stuff in the mail....

Christmas card suggestionWhen doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderfully special people, who have sacrificed so much, would receive.A Great Idea!!!When you are making out your Christmas cards this year, please include the following: A Recovering American Soldier c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center 6900 Georgia Avenue,NW Washington,DC 20307-5001

Happy Holidays!!

Thanksgiving and some of James's wedding pics

I hope everyone had a great month of November!! It has been awhile since I have updated and added pictures as we have just had a crazy month! I can not believe it is almost December! We have had a busy month. We have both been working. I am taking classes online which are keeping me (and mom haha) very busy new testament last quarter and old testament this quarter. Halia is growing like crazy!! She is still not quite walking, I figure she thinks its more fun to be held and crawl fast:) She has said quite a few words, but is getting really good at telling us no in not so many words:) The weekend of the 10th was James and Emily's wedding in Missouri! It was very pretty and great to see all the family! We welcome Emily to the family! I will be adding pics soon. The weekend of the 16th Jake and I went to a marriage retreat called a weekend to remember by familylife in St. Louis and it was amazing! I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. We had a great time, just wish we could have done a little more sight seeing while there, but it will definately be a trip we will have to take again soon! Thanksgiving weekend we went up to Fort Smith and ate intirely too much food! Thurday we did the big thanksgiving at Randy and Janet's with all the family. Friday morning we got up early and did the crazy black friday shopping then watched th Arkansas game and watched them win against their biggest rival LSU!!! We should be going to a bowl now! We went and had another thanksgiving dinner at Granny Edna's, then sat went to lunch at our favorite chinese restaurant. Finally we are home and plan on staying home until Christmas and we are ready to enjoy our house for awhile :) We are cleaning and putting the tree up and going to do lots of baking this weekend! I am starting to get excited about the holidays and the weather is finally participating in the mood. Hope you all had a great thanksgiving! I will update pics soon

Halloween pics

It has been awhile since I added pics. We have had a tiring few weeks. Jake and I have been sick with pneumonia and I am praying to God that Halia hasn't gotten it. We are finally starting to feel better, just took awhile. So during that time my energy level to do anything extra just wasn't there. We had a good halloween though, and she enjoyed trick or treating although I don't think she quite understood it. I was suprised she left her hood on because she normally hates hats, but she did good with it and was cute as can be. She couldn't keep your hand out of the bucket. She thought if they were putting candy in, she needed to take it out. I will update with new pics as we take them. This is going to be a busy month. Next weekend is James and Emily's wedding, so off to Missouri this weekend. The weekend after Jake and I are going to a marriage retreat in St. Luis, so that should be fun. Then thanksgiving! Hope everyone is doing well and miss and love you all!
