Our 2011

2011 was full of ups and downs!
But I am so thankful for all the many blessings God gave our family!

 We started the year off rough with the loss of my sweet Grandfather, Bobo. He passed away January 15. We miss him so very much but I am so thankful he was able to meet Addison. He is now in no pain and celebrating every holiday and birthday with sweet Jesus!

I celebrated my birthday, my bridesmaids threw me a Bachelorette party, I took my bridal pictures after rescheduling about 3 times because of snow, finished up with our pre-marital counseling and got everything ready for the wedding! 

I married the man of my dreams on March 5! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and being able to share it with Addison was even better! I can not thank God enough for unexpected blessings!
We also were able to take a couple of days to go to St. Louis for our Honeymoon. It may not have been the beach or a cruise but it was perfect! We got to spend time together and that was so important!

We were just getting use to being married, living together and having a baby all at the same time.
We celebrated our 1st Easter- which Addison woke up that morning with a fever so we were not able to go to church or any of our plans that day. My mom had to remind me that this will probably happen often because I was beside myself! haha

I celebrated my 1st mothers day! It was such a special day. Addison was dedicated at church in front of my family. Something I will never forget!
Both Brent and I's brothers graduated from High school and my Grandmother, Mawma, started chemo after finding out she was diagnosed with cancer.
God also answered a huge prayer with Brent getting a new job at Tyson!

We went on our 1st family vacation to Big Cedar in Branson and celebrated Brent's 1st Fathers day at the Tulsa Zoo! We made so many great memories!

We celebrated our 1st 4th of July and Addison HATED the fireworks! 
July was a very special month. Brent was baptized on July 31st. I am so thankful to have such a amazing Godly leader for our family!

Addison turned ONE on Aug 2nd!
We had a big party for her on 7th! 
I can not thank God enough for blessing Brent and I with her!

I started a new job 2 days a week as a preschool teacher for 2 year old!
It is so much fun and keeps me on my toes!

Was full of parties, parties, and more parties. This was a very busy month!
Halloween, our church put on a carnival so Addison attended as Snow white! :)

We celebrated our 1st Thanksgiving together!

Lets just sum this one up with Celebrating Jesus birthday and Christmas with Family and Friends!

Hope everyone had a great 2011 and may God bless you in the coming year!

Merry Christmas!

Our Christmas Day was so fun but so busy!

We started off with our Christmas gifts from Santa! 
 Addi was so excited!

 We couldn't get her to get dressed or eat any breakfast.
 We got around and went to church. It was so such a special service! 
and Addison did great in the nursery!
 When we got home we opened gifts...
 cleaned up the huge mess we had...

 took a nap and headed over to Gigi and Pops for lunch!

 We had so much fun! 
Addison loved all her presents and enjoyed seeing everyone! 
 We love our Gigi and Pop!
 The girls!

After, we headed to Joey and Elizabeth's for Christmas at their house. Addison was running on about a 30 minute nap by now but was still trucking along. I think she was on gift over load! 
  Nonie and Nono 
We had such a great day with family and celebrating Jesus Birthday! 
We unloaded the car and crashed. 
Addison was so worn out she slept till 10:00 the next day!

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
I know we had a great 1st as a married couple! 

We started the day off with baking cupcakes for Jesus's birthday. 
My parents always did this with us when we were little, so I was so excited to continue on the tradition with Addison.
 She loved helping us! 
 and of course had to get a quick taste!
 Then the decorating began...
 we sang "Happy Birthday", then Addi chowed down! 
So special making new memories together. 

That afternoon, we went to the candle light service at church. We let Addison sit with us and of course the only seats were on the front row, but she did great and really enjoyed the singing and story time.
 Dad and Addi cheesing 
 We came home, ate dinner- some yummy appetizers, watched football, then...
....went to the square to see the lights! We have made this a tradition with Addison to take her to see the lights on Christmas Eve. She loves it! 
 When we got home we sprinkled our reindeer dust out in the yard..
and put out our milk and cupcake for Santa!
 Addison didn't quite understand why she couldn't eat it!
Then we were off to bed to get ready for an exciting day of church, family and fun!
