{Merry Christmas}

Merry Christmas everyone! I can't believe that its that time again. It just seems like the years just go faster and faster. I just wanted to do a little update on the fam.

Jake is currently working at Diamond Ranch Academy. He is a youth supervisor up there. He likes it for the most part. It has its ups and downs. He is also still working for pinnacle security. He is in the process of recruiting for this next summer. So he is staying plenty busy. He was also recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. He wasn't to happy about that, but he is dealing with it, and doing fine. He is going back to school here in the spring. We will let you know when he decides on a career. :)

I am currently working at Interstate Rock. I love it there and they seem to really like me. I am just working and enjoying being a mom! Being a Mom is the hardest, most rewarding job there is. I am pretty boring for the most part right now.

Reed is the most exciting part of our family. He is growing so fast. He is WALKING now. He is doing so many new things. He eats big people food now. He refuses his baby food. He is starting to say words. Dad is his favorite. He also says dog, and will not say Mom. He waves now, gives high fives, gives big kisses and hugs, and points at everything. He is just the cutest little guy and we love him so much..

tis the season...

I just love this picture.. Reed just loves to throw these little fits these days
he's so cute.

I think this is how I feel these days.
I just want to cry. I think the holidays are overwhelming
There is all ways something that we can't afford and trying to fit christmas presents and traveling into the budget... impossible.
sometimes I think its more stess then fun for me.

I do love Christmas though..
I love the lights
I love the music
I love remembering Christ
I love being around family
and I love the New year.
Feels like you just get to start over.

tis the season to be happy and joyous.
and that I will be..
because everything always works out.
