Pre Christmas Day Fun!

Jacob and I had a wonderful holiday weekend!! It was a blast to get together and see all our friends and family. We were so blessed!! My family went above and WAY beyond on Christmas gifts. Of course like I blogged about earlier we weren't going to go all out for one holds up their end of the bargain. However with all that being said---THANK YOU MOM AND DAD!!!! They got Jacob and I so much stuff but it was all very practical stuff that we needed..things like a cooler/ice chest, suitcase, clothes, stuff for our cars, matching pass port holders, candy ;) and gum, they bought us A COUCH!!!!!!! We are soo sooo soooo blessed!!!!!!! Thanks again!

Also- The night before Christmas eve Jacob and I took a carriage ride to look at Christmas lights. It was FREEZING!!!!! So we didn't get very many pictures but here a few of the ones we got. It was so fun and romantic!! It was a nice way to get into the Christmas spirit.

Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

Jacob and I hosted an ugly sweater Christmas party last night. It was so fun to once again see everyone from high school and even our new friends who we didn't know in high school. I have truly enjoyed owning my own home and having a husband! Here a few photos of the party. We had some pretty yucky outfits! You be the judge!
The first couple: Jarrett Hudson and Haleigh Ward (they're pretty cute!)

Poor Miss Mollee Kae!

So this morning I have some very sad news!! My poor sweet puppy is injured! I had to work last night and when I got home my wonderful husband told me what had happened. He was taking her outside to go potty and she always gets in such a rush to do things! She went running off the steps from the back porch and Jacob said she just kinda fell down and rolled- He thought her shoulder was hurt. So he checked her out and said she seemed fine. He didn't notice anything being wrong-she went potty and was ready to come inside. She always gets a treat for going potty (she's still a puppy haha) and when she came in she was jumping up at him expecting her treat! He noticed she was bleeding in her paw. When he looked closer he saw that she had broken her claw ALL THE WAY DOWN! It was to late to take her to the vet. He called my mom-who gave him GREAT instructions on how to clean it out etc...Then he took some pictures....
These make me so sad!! It hurts my stomach because I know it hurts her!! You know when you cut your fingernail to short or bend a nail back..I imagine this is way worse! She has an appointment to go to the vet today (this will be her SECOND appt THIS WEEK...that's a whole different story!) But the vet said she would probably have to get it taken out completely. He's going to take care of her today.
I just thought I'd share my pain this morning. Since we don't have kids yet, Mollee is our baby-As her momma it breaks my heart to see her in pain. I will let you guys know how it goes today at the vet. In the mean time she is being pampered all day!! Lots of treats, people food, laying in momma's lap, new bones, and her favorite blanket! She'll be back to normal in no time!

Busy but Blessed!

Well with holidays rushing on full speed ahead we have found ourselves SOOOO busy! Not only with our full-time jobs but I've been working extra with my mom like crazy and Jacob has been so busy too!! He also has a whole list of things he wants to do here at home. Example: Deck the attic, work on the fence, build garage shelves...busy busy busy! He also has been battling migraine headaches. They kind of come and go- he seems to wake up with them and then throughout the day the fade in and out. However he has gone a few days without one! So hopefully he's over that!
I just wanted to write though and let everyone know that we have not abandoned the blog-We just have been crazy! I will be posting pictures soon of our "ugly sweater Christmas party" that's coming up with all of our wonderful friends and of course pictures from the holidays!
Hope everyone is warm, blessed and happy during the holiday season!

I guess it's December

Well yesterday marked the first day of December. Thanksgiving weekend brought in snow, shopping and Christmas fever for many. However I must admit (and yes let the boo's start coming) I am not much up for the Christmas holiday. It is so frustrating to me the way that people rush around spending ungodly amounts of money on gifts and decorations etc and most people don't even remember the REAL reason for the season. So...this year at our house we are having a SMALL Christmas. ONE gift each to and from my parents etc...We wanted to focus this year on what Christmas is really about. The celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. So instead of stressing out and buying loads of gifts and spending money that we don't have--Jacob and I are remembering the true meaning of Christmas. We are just mainly thankful that we get to spend it together!
Now--with all that being said- I finally got the Christmas Tree up and SOME of the decorations out. I don't think I will do much more this year. Since it's the first year in our new house though we did decide to do some. Enjoy!

I tried to include some pictures of the coffee table (there are a FEW small decorations on there) and of course the SWEET puppy laying on the couch enjoying the holidays more than I seem to be! :) I hope everyone truly has a wonderful holiday season. We are so blessed with great friends and family and I hope that each of you take some time to tell your loved ones that your thankful for them and that you love them because tomorrow is not promised to ANY of us!
