Adam Sandler is my Hero!

Today I am thankful for Adam Sandler. I know this sounds a little weird but just listen. 11 Years ago today his movie "The Waterboy" came out and I had a Blind Date to go see this film. It was the start of my life as I know it. This movie was my first date with Kris. Who would have guessed that a silly movie about an awkward Cajun boy from Louisana would change a person's life but this one did just that. I love my husband more today than ever but I have to give credit to this film because if not for it and a couple of our friends we might never have met.

Writers Workshop for MamaKat

Write a love letter to the object of your affection. Prompt from Mamakatslosinit writers workshop

I chose this prompt because it goes well with the blogs I have been working on this month. All about Thanks.

My Dearest Husband,

You have no idea how lucky I am. I have not only married my soul-mate but also my best friend. I know that I tell you all the time how much I love you but I really don't think words can convey the love I have for you. Everyday I thank my lucky stars that we met almost 11 years ago to the day. I am overwhelmed at the amount of love you have given me and I just hope that you have received as much from me. You make me laugh and for that I am so thankful. I have so much fun when we are together. You have given me all a girl could ever want and then some. I am amazed daily when I look into the eyes of our child and see so much of you. My hope for his future is for him to turn out like his daddy, Chivalrous, caring, loving, just the kind of guy moms tell their children about in fairy tales. You are my prince Charming and you have made my dreams come true. I love you more and more every day and on this 11th anniversary of our 1st date I must tell you that I look forward to the next 87 anniversary's (ok so maybe that is too many but I am looking forward to growing old next to the man that I love)

Love you,



This morning I am thankful Good Morning Kisses. Every morning Cannon comes into our room and gives kisses and says Good morning. It is so cute and I look forward to waking up so that I can get these kisses. I just can't imagine my life without this sweet little guy. What on earth did I ever do without him? He is such a sweet boy and he just lights up my life.

Day 2 of giving thanks....

Today I am Thankful for ALL of you. My Friends and Family. Without you all where would I be? I know I wouldn't be who I am today without most of you and the experiences we have shared. So for my thanksgivings today I just want to say THANK YOU to all of you for being my friends.

Some of you are and always have been there for me during my roughest times. And some of you are new to my circle of friends but I see you all in the same circles and I am so thankful for all of you that are in that circle. I really hate to do it but I must quote my favorite song from my favorite Musical and say...

For Good from Wicked.....

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you

Because I knew you

I have been changed for good

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for

But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share

And none of it seems to matter anymore

Who can say if I've been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

And because I knew you...

I have been changed for good...

For todays Picture I decided to do ones of Cannon and his little buddy's Jack and Brayden. They have the workings to become life long friends and I love seeing them play together knowing all the memories they will make. It reminds me of all the wonderful people I have in my life when I see their freindship.

Getting better I promise!

Ok so I know I haven't been on here much and that I haven't been consistent at all. I am changing all that now. hahaha.

So I am going to do a Blog a Day!

Starting now I am doing a Thankful for blog a day. I am hoping to get creative and also to hopefully remind myself of what I have and how good I have it!

So here goes....

Today November 2,

I am thankful for my health. So many people are sick this season and Knock on wood we have all avoided it. We got Cannon his shots and are waiting a few more weeks to get ours. Cannon is responding to the shots well. There have been so many people around her that have had the Flu that I am just so glad that we haven't gotten sick.

I will also include a picture a day. here is one from our front porch fall decorations.

Normal is...

For Mama Kat's Writing assignment.... Thanks Lindsey!

Normal is...
Unusual. When I was very young I always thought that I was NORMAL. Then as I got older and into school where kids talk about their families and lives I realized that my family was far from the idea of Normal that the people around me had. I grew up an only child in a world of Siblings. I grew up without a Father in a world of mother/father families. I grew up in a townhouse in a world of Single family homes. I grew up without a Yard and all my friends had grass and swingsets. I grew up with a working mother who had to put me in daycare in a world of SAHM's. I realized quickly that I was an Odd-ball or as my mother told me UNIQUE. Normal for me NOW is all the things I didn't have... I am a SAHM living in a Single family home with acreage and a swingset. I live there with the Father of my son and we want at least 2 more children. Now I know that NORMAL IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT!!!!!

Getting Older:(

So We went to the park today and I am just amazed with all the new things Cannon can do. He is just getting so big. He climbed all the way to the top of the big slide and went down all by himself today... Just 3 days ago at the same park he could not achieve this feat. I am just so in awe of how quickly the kids grow and how awesome it is to see him do these things daily. He was so proud of himself that he just had to do more... He then went to the merry-go-round and decided that he was big boy enough to stand up while it was going around. I am just so glad that my dream of becoming a mom came true and it's the cherry on top having the worlds best little boy!

Ok So it has been a while.... lots has happened in the last few months. So in Feb we took Bug to Disneyland in CA and he had a BLAST. It was so fun to see one of my favorite places through his little eyes. He is doing wonderfully and just growing and getting smarter everyday. He is now 18 1/2 months old and it seems like just yesterday he was still in my big ol' belly. At his 18 month appointment he weighed in at 26lbs 9oz and was 33 1/2 inches tall. He is so smart and knows how to get his way already. He has about 50 words that he can sign and only says a few words. He says bubble, mama, daddy, yia yia, yes, no, and OG which is Dog. he is working so hard at his animal sounds. My favorite that he does is the Horse. I will try to get a video of the horse noise and put it up here. Kris is getting all geared up to go back to AK this summer and we are looking forward to the paychecks that will come with that. Here are a few pictures of Bug in Disneyland for you to see. I PROMISE I will try really hard to update this better.

Here is the Slideshow from Disneyland! Enjoy!

My baby is now a BIG BOY!!!qa

Ok so at Target the other day we got Cannon some big boy undies! they were Cheap so I bought 4 packages of them (Handy Manny and Mickey Mouse) So today I thought since they came out of the wash that I would try them on bug to see how they fit. Well as you can see they fit him GREAT! They are a size 4T so they shouldn't Fit him as well as they do. But anyway on to the BIG NEWS!!! I gave him some milk after he had been in the undies for an hour or so and then thought to myself... I should sit him on the Potty and see what happens... so I did and he sat there reading a book and after a min or so he got up and low and behold my BIG BOY went Potty (and a lot) in his big boy potty. I am so proud and so sad at the same time. I can't wait for him to grow up but still want him to stay so small... Oh I guess the joys of Toddlerum are among us.
