So much to be thankful for this year......

It was wonderful having my family here for Thanksgiving. I accomplished cooking my first
turkey. It looked and tasted good. Quite amazing the prep work that goes into planning to have 1o people at your house for Thanksgiving. It is definitely an expensive grocery bill. That is for sure. It was great having them all here and having them see and hold Jackson for the first time. We also got to have Jackson's dedication while they were all here. Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of the whole clan but the memory is stuck in my head
It was not only wonderful to share this with our families but also with our church family as well. They have been such a huge part of Little Jack's life so far that it was fitting that they were all part of us dedicating him too. Erin also shared the song that was inspired by baby Jackson. It is simply amazing what God can do. This song means alot to Adrian and I. It is amazing to us that someone could have such insight into what has been rushing through our heads since the day our little one was born. Thoughts that we never shared with anyone. It is one of those things that could only be God. The day was great! My parents travel was safe and we got to spend the afternoon with Adrian's family too. So much to be thankful for and to celebrate.

Vikings #1 Fan

Uncle Jeremy I need a Vikings outfit that fits me. It takes two of me to fill this one. IT is sooo funny mom rolled the sleeves over 3-4 times and my little legs barely make the calf area. But It is 6-9 months...mom didn't think I would be able to wear it next season. So we tried to make it work. Doesn't look like it is helping the Vikings against the packers today.
I Believe I would need two if not three of my heads to fill this hood. It is huge!!!

I guess as big as I am I'm just not big enough.

Is this what are saturday nights have become?

jackson and dad spent the day on saturday watching FOOTBALL of course. Adrian was so excited that his purdue onsie sort of fit him so he put it on. If he doesn't wear it now...it won't fit next season. So we put the whole outfit on from head to toe...But dad wasn't satisfied. Until.......
his son was posed in a threepoint stance. Like my kid is going to be big enough to play on the line in a football game. I think we will stick to golf, tennis, maybe baseball. But my little man will get creamed on the football field. anyway I have to admit it is a cute picture. Look at him hold that head up. But then the evening came and jackson was asleep so mom and dad decided to spend some quality time, but is this what are saturday nights have become?

Adrian decided he wanted to make cookies together. So we made cookies and while they were baking I made a hotdish with some homemade tomato sauce...it was fun making my own spegetti sauce. I might try it again sometime. I will say my hubby is not a clean baker, nor an organized one. check out that counter. Have a great weekend. If you get bored you might try baking with you spouse...haha!!
