In honor of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is less than a week away so I thought this would be a good time to reflect on all that is good in my life. Things I am thankful for:

1. My Husband- He is my best friend, my soul mate, my rock, my shoulder to cry on, my go-to person, my other half, and absolute love of my life. From him always comes unconditional love and support, I am so lucky to have him. I am so thankful for all he does for me and our family. And without him I wouldn't have the other love of my life, my daughter. Which leads me to #2.
2. Sophia- My daughter, my first born. I can't even begin to put into words how thankful I am for this child. She has opened my eyes to a whole new world. She has taught me to be a more loving and patient person. Our lives are so much more enriched with her in it.

3. Family- Each and every family member is special for their own unique reason, I'll just leave it at that. Without family, we have nothing.

4. My friends- I am blessed to have so many friends, near and far, that I can count on and who would come to my rescue if need be at the drop of a hat. Some I have known almost my whole life and some not near as long, some I talk to and see more than others but each and every friend has a special place in my heart. I truly value my friends and will never have "enough" or too many.

5. Our health-not everyone is as lucky as we are to be in such good health. For that I am truly grateful.

(on a not so serious note)
6. My DVR- When I've had a long and exhausting day, there is nothing better then sitting in front of the tv catching up on mind numbing shows. I don't know what I would do without it...seriously

7. My iphone- it's attatched to me at all times, I don't know how I ever went without one. Even though it drops calls I still love it

8. My computer- it keeps me from losing my sanity some days :)

9. My morning coffee- I couldn't function throughout the day without it

10. The holidays- I absolutely love the holidays, they are my favorite time of the year...

Family pictures

We met with our wonderful photographer last weekend to get our family/Christmas card pictures done. I was so happy that it turned out to be such a beautiful day, it has been chilly lately. We met at one of the local walking trails and it was the perfect spot, the leaves were really pretty this year.

Feeling a little crafty

I love baby leg warmers, I think they are the cutest things ever so I decided to make some of my own! They were cheap and pretty easy to make.

I started out with these, just a pair of women's tall socks
I cut off the feet and sewed a hem where I cut and voila! Baby leg warmers :)

Happy Birthday to me

Yesterday was my birthday and it was hands down, the best birthday I've ever had in all my 26 years. I didn't do anything big or really special, but it was my first birthday as a mom and that in itself was the best present anyone could have given me. I spent all day with my girl and we went and had lunch with Leah and her newborn baby Gene IV. It's always nice to get out with another mommy :)

Sophia's first Halloween

We took Sophia "trick-or-treating" this year, and by trick-or-treating I mean, parading her around in her costume so everyone could see how cute she looked :) Don't worry, she didn't get any of the candy! Maybe next year. On Friday, we went to the Weatherford College's Safe Halloween and on Sunday we went to a local church for Trunk or Treat.

Pop stopped by Friday to see Sophia in her costume before we left

She had fun at the college seeing all the people in their costumes, but it got pretty chilly so we didn't stay too long. We also stopped by the nursing booth while we were there so Sophia could meet some of my old instructors, she was a hit needless to say :)

Sunday, we went by Rudy's parent's house to meet my brother in-law, sister in-law, and my nephew for Trunk-or-treating. And so Sophia's Abuela could see her in her ballerina costume.

 She's such a big girl, she can even hold her own bag :)

We only went to a few "trunks" because Sophia was completely wore out from the whole weekend. She had a blast though! Next Halloween will be even more fun, I can't wait!
