Merry Christmas!

This year Brent and I were looking forward to Christmas more than ever.. it was Addison's 1st!

We started off Christmas eve with going to the candle light service at church with my family. Addison was dressed in the very same dress I wore my 1st Christmas- brought tears to my eyes! She did great in Church but when Daddy lit the candle we went straight for it! ahh!

Cant believe I was once this small!

After church, we headed to Brent's house for his parents to see her then back to my parents to eat and hang out. Even though Addison is small and doesn't understand the real meaning of Christmas we started early, I read her Twas the night before Jesus, we sprinkled reindeer dust out on the lawn and put our milk and cookies out for Santa!

Addison was worn out laying on Gigi!

Yummy! He drank all his milk, loved his cookie and the reindeer loved their carrots!
 Addison got her very 1st Jumper Roo! She LOVES it! It is so fun to watch her learn and do new things. She is slowly figuring out how to turn and jump around in it. So glad Brent and I got her this for Christmas!

I would have to say my very favorite gift was what Brent got Addison besides our Dyson vacuum ;). For weeks he had been telling me he ordered something for her but would not tell me what it was. On Christmas Eve he let her open it. Tears started streaming down my face.. of course! It was her very first bible that had her name monogrammed on the front. Daddy did a GREAT job!

Later that day we went to Brent's Family's Christmas. We ate, played with Addison and watched Football. By the end of the night I think we were all worn out! Addison ended up sleeping pretty good! :)

I LOVE my sweet family!

The greatest gift of all is the birth of Jesus- and being able to celebrate this special day with family and the ones you love most- I couldn't have had a better Christmas. So glad God blessed us with our little present- Addison!

Merry Christmas! May God bless you in the following years in many ways!

Christmas here we Come- My Favorite time of year!

Tonight Brent, Addison, and I made our way down to the Fayetteville square after finishing up our shopping. I was so excited for her to see the lights. Addison likes looking at the lights on our house but LOVED looking at the lights on the square. She just watched as we walked around and cooed! It was too cute!
pretty trees!

Sunday night we had Christmas at Brent's Grandparents house- Nona and Nono.  It was so fun to watch Addison open her 1st christmas present!
She loved pulling the paper and of course it went straight to her mouth! :)

Almost got it!

Brent and I could not be more excited to spend our 1st Christmas with Addison. She is the best Christmas present anyone could ever give! :)

Update on us:
We are currently looking for a place to live- WOOHOO! We are so excited and so ready to live together as a family and have a place to call our own. It is hard being apart when you have a little one. Addison and I miss Daddy WAY to much.

We have been a little discouraged lately because we haven't found anything that is what we are looking for. Please keep us in your prayers that God helps us find the right house/apartment/ duplex!

We love you all and wish you a Very Merry Christmas,

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you...Happy birthday sweet Daddy... Happy birthday to you!!

Today was Brent's 23rd Birthday. This was his first birthday with Addison and it was great. We didn't do much besides watch football and lay around the house with Addi but had fun just being together.

I can not even explain to you what Brent means to me. From the day we first meet - to now I couldn't love him more. He is a great person, provider, best friend, dad, and " husband". He is so loving and caring ... would do anything for Addison and I. It is so neat to see why God put him in my life. I honestly do thank God everyday for Brent.

I Love you so much and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you! Addison and I are so lucky to have you in our life!

Daddy's Birthday gifts and cupcakes!

Another 1st!!

Addison's 1st Thanksgiving
sleeping in the car!
Mom-  I'm ready to get out!
For Thanksgiving we went out to White Rock with Brent's family...and man was it cold! Every year they go camping with there RVs and all the family comes out on Thanksgiving for a big lunch that his papaw cooks.Yumm! Addison did really good and had fun watching what everyone was doing.... she also got to see her first snow flakes! :)

My family had been out of town for a family vacation to Williamsburg, so we did our thanksgiving Friday night. Then Addi, my mom and I decorated the house for Christmas. After playing and dancing around with Uncle Kyle and mommy, We curled up by the fire and watched Elf with the family- The only thing that was missing was Daddy :(. He had to work ALL day for Black Friday.

God has given me so much to be thankful for this year! A wonderful future husband and best friend, beautiful daughter that means the world to me, loving parents that would do absolutely anything for us, wonderful brothers, great in-laws, sweet extended family and friends. I thank God everyday for the people that he has put in my life. It is so amazing to watch Gods plan unfold for our little family.

Please keep Brent, Addison and I in your prayers as we get ready for our new life together. I pray that God directs us in the right path. I know he will provide for all our needs if we trust in him!

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord your God with all your heart and lean not on your own understandings. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We finally put up Addison's 1st Christmas tree! YAY! This is my favorite time of year!

Working on my Cooking Skills

So lately I have been practicing my cooking skills and I have to say I am getting a little bit better. ( Brent even thinks so... not so many burnt things! ) My mom keeps telling me I have to learn so Brent and Addison will not starve but I always assure her that there is always take out! haha

Tonight I used a new recipe out of a Pampered Chef cook book.
Beef Taco
2 packages of crescent rolls
1 1/2 lbs of lean ground beef
1 package of taco seasoning mix
1 3/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons of water

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook ground beef in Large skillet over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking beef into crumbles; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix, 1 1/2 cups of cheese and water.
2. scoop filling evenly over desired shape; ( I did the wreath) finish shape as directed. Bake for 20 to 25 min or until brown. Serve! 
the wreath made out of rolls- 8 on the outside 8 on the inside
cross them over each other
YAY! I didnt burn it!
I have to say I am pretty proud- I even got complements! :)

Hope everyone has a great week!
