Tonight I put our Christmas tree up..and Tait thought the bulbs needed to come off of the tree...oh this might be an adventure :)

November 29, 2009

Ok..I know I am behind in here is a picture from Thanksgiving and the day after.

This is Tait and his cousin Ava. He doesn't look too happy that she is touching his toy.

Friday night we went to Lucas Oil stadium to watch Monrovia play for the State title. My cousin happens to be the assistant coach so we were there to cheer him on! They didn't win, but were undefeated the whole season, so they should be very proud of themselves!

I am thankful for our family business. Our family owns an apple orchard. My Great Grandpa planted the first apple trees back in 1926. My dad is now the manager, and growing up my brother and I had to to help every summer with the gardens, and of course back then we complained...but looking back now I am happy we got to grow up on an Orchard..and lets face apples and vegetables are great! :)

November 13, 2009

Today I am thankful for my Cricut. This machine has saved me from a lot of cutting, and money buying dicuts and stickers....and because someone thought it would be a good idea to cut out over 200 pieces for Tait's birthday invitations, it has also saved me a lot of time!

I am thankful for MOPS and especially the group I am in. This is my table, and I am so thankful to have these ladies in my life. It is so great to be in MOPS and know that there are other moms going through the same things you are. What a great ministry we have at church! I was asked to be a discussion group leader this year and am looking forward to hopefully one day being on the steering team.

November 9, 2009

Today I am thankful for my husband. (he doesn't smile in pictures :( ) We just celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary last week (while I was still in the hospital.) But today we were able to find a babysitter and go on a much needed date and celebrate our anniversary.
Justin is my best friend, gave me my beautiful baby boy, and I couldn't imagine life without him!

November 7, 2009

Today I am thankful for my baby boy.
I can't tell you how much I missed this little man while I was in the hospital.
Most hospitals right now don't allow children under 15 to visit because of the flu.
So..I had to go 10 days without seeing my little man...Hardest 10 days of my life!
Not one day went by that I didn't cry because I missed him so much!

November 6, 2009

So we are on a thankful theme for each day in November.
Today I am thankful for my health. Yes I am on 2 antibiotics for a week, but I am SO thankful that I am much better. Turns out pancreatitis is very serious and can be deadly. While at the hospital I didn't think much of it...but after doing a little looking online I found out how serious it can be. I wasn't happy about having to go through surgery, but having my gallbladder removed means I won't have to go through this again! I praise God that I am healing and getting better. My staples are out and I only have a little over 1 week until I can pick my son up! God is good!

Nov 5, 2009

Ok..So I know I have been MIA. And if you know me you know why.
I spent Oct 24-Nov 3rd in the hospital....Not fun!
I had pancreatitis and gallstones. I ended up having my gallbladder removed, but
I developed a little pneumonia, and my gallbladder ended up being in worst shape
than the surgeon thought...SO I don't have all my pictures for while I was gone, BUT I do
have a few that I was able to take on my phone..I am just going to list them all on this post.

This was all I could eat for the first 4 days in the chips :(
IV #1 of 4
IV#2 of 4
Balloon from Tait...made me cry! because of the flu no one under the age of 15 was allowed in the hospital to I went 1o days without seeing my baby boy! It was a rough 10 days!
I also got to spend Justin and my 7th wedding anniversary in the hospital....these were from Justin.
Bruises from all the blood they had to draw...They took my blood at least once a day
the first REAL food I got to eat a few hours after my surgery...Orange jello never tasted so good!!
