Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Thanksgiving has come and gone... (plus a little update on Brentley).

Well, Thanksgiving went really well. Brentley and I headed to my mom's around noon, and started cooking our butts off lol. We mad turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, sweet tea, two casseroles, pumpkin pie, deviled eggs, rolls, cranberry sauce, and celery with cheese.
My sister's dad got there around 5 pm; my nana and cousin got there around 5:30 pm; Chris, Grace and Chris' brother got there around 5:45 pm; then, Chris' mom and step-dad got there at 6 pm. And of course, my mom, sister, Brentley, and I were already there.
My nana brought stuffing, and Chris' mom brought ham.
Unfortunately, I forgot my camera, so I don't have any pictures :(

Now it's time for... CHRISTMAS!!! There will be no forgetting the camera at Christmas. Trust me lol. We already know our Christmas schedule. Christmas eve we will be going to Chris' aunt's house for about an hour, then heading to Chris' mom's house. Christmas day we will be opening presents at our house in the morning, then my mom and sister will be coming over, then we are going to my aunt's house. The day after Christmas we are going to Chris' step-grandparent's house in the afternoon, then going to my dad's house to see my dad and brother in the evening. We are going to be busy, busy, busy!!!
We are putting our Christmas tree up on the 1st of Dec. Normally I would put it up the day before Thanksgiving, but our place is just too small, so we want to have it up for the least amount of time, but still get to enjoy it. I will take lots of pics once we get it done.
I only have two things left to get for Christmas. Something for Chris, but I'm not sure what I'm getting, and the Kinect game for Grace, then we a d.o.n.e.!!! I haven't even started wrapping yet :( My mom and I are going to have a wrapping party (sort of). I figured that would be easier because when we are at home, if I'm not holding Brentley, Grace follows me around. There is no way she would let me close myself off in a room to wrap. But when we are at my mom's she is so into playing with Cheyenne that she wouldn't even notice I wasn't in the room lol.

As for Brentley, he is three months old today! I cannot believe he is already three months old. He is growing like a weed. He wears 3-6 month clothes mostly, but he is in 6-9 month sleepers. He's still in size 2 diapers, but I think he will be moving to size 3 soon. He can roll over now, as you already know. He is also reaching for things now. When he's tired he has to eat and hold either my hand, hair, or shirt. He rarely falls asleep any other way.  He loves his daddy. Chris can make him smile instantly, and he just babbles away to Chris. It is so cute! I have several videos, but blogger won't load any of them :( He is still exclusively breastfed. If he's fussy he likes me to rock him while I sing "I Love You Forever." That's about all I can think of for now.


  1. Im so mad cause i didnt forget mine but i was so busy and tired i just didnt take pictures lol.

    and you are so lucky that its planned already we dont find out anything til last minute. like we just found out today that my aunt is having a dinner tomorrow. lol. its kinda irritating that we have to find stuff out like that.

    awe! hes getting so big already i wanna see some new pictures though :)

  2. Sounds like you had a ton of people at Thanksgiving! It must be nice your in laws can be in the same room as your parents. My Mom would choke MIL out if she stepped foot in her house. lol.

    We usually do it the day after Thanksgiving too, but we are waiting on Jessie's paycheck, and that doesn't come until the 2nd. lol. But I have everything all set up for it. What ornaments did you get? Did you already post pics?

    That'd be cool to go to your Mom's to wrap. I know what you mean. Samantha is the same way-still. But not if Brennon is there.

    Wow. He is going to be active like Grace, already rolling and reaching for stuff. Does he roll to get around yet?

    Samantha still has to have me sing "Hush Little Baby." But I enjoy doing it. It is like one of my last pieces of her baby years.
