Gratitude is the Best Attitude

So last week for our FHE Josh and I talked about the first Thanksgiving and then we made a 'thankful thoughts' box. What we do with this box is everyday on a piece of paper we write down at least one thing that we are thankful for and on Thanksgiving we will open it up and read them out loud. So I just wanted to share, in lieu of the upcoming holdiay, some of the things I am so grateful for.

* I am grateful for such a wonderful husband that works so hard without a complaint!
*I am grateful for our baby boy that is coming in April
*I am so grateful for the gospel and the happiness it brings into our lives and our home
* I am grateful for our job here that lets us live rent free
* I am grateful for great family and friends!!

I could probably go on and on but these are some of the things I am most grateful for right now. I am so excited for all the food this year. I get to have 2 Thanksgiving meals and what more could a pregnant gal ask for?? So I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving, and Happy Black Friday shopping to you all too.

Last night Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town came in concert and I really wanted to go. So my sister and I were listening hard to the radio stations trying to win tickets to go. Well as luck would have it, my sister won some tickets at about 4:30. So I had a blast watching this concert. We had excellent seats straight center 12 rows up from the floor. Little Big Town was the opening act and they did an excellet job getting the crowd excited. Then Carrie came out and she is so adorable!! It was just fun to watch her interact with the crowd and see how down to earth she really is. She had 3 different outfits and I loved to see those different changes. Definitely a great night. I just love concerts and can't wait for the next one.

My camera was taking blurry shots for some reason so this was the only one from her concert that turned out looking decent.

We were having a great time. And I just really don't like to take pictures, so the ones I am in I am just not serious.

Half Way!!

What an exciting day for me!! I am officially 20 weeks which in pregnancy talk means HALF DONE!!! The first half has gone by pretty fast and pretty slow, only when I stop to think about it. We are so happy that we know what we are having so we can start buying things for our little guy. I went to the doctor today and she said that everything is looking great and everything is right on target and his heartbeat is great. So here is to another great 20 weeks to come!

Drum Roll Please......

Well we did go get our ultrasound yesterday and it was such an amazing experience to see my little baby moving around inside of me!! The Dr. said that everything looks great and we are still on target for our April 2 due date. So I am almost half done here people!! Time flies. For all of you that guessed we are going to have a girl, I am sorry to say you are WRONG!!! I am having a boy!! YAY for us. My only problem was I had a name picked out for a girl and I am completely blank on boy names. So I better get on that little problem. It was so much fun for me to see how Josh reacted, he was so giddy all day and he is so proud that he gets a little boy. Truth be told I am scared out of my mind for a boy because I don't have much experience with them at all. However, I couldn't be happier about it!!

Make sure to keep scrolling to check out our fabulous Halloween pics!!


Every year for Halloween my sister throws a big Halloween party for the family. They are always so much fun, it is what I look forward to almost the most every Halloween. We have great food, games, and best of all we all go around to each other and do a little "trick-or-treating." Last night the costumes were great!! Jared and Allie's little family dressed up in football gear and a cheerleader, my favorite costume of the family was Zack, he was a football!! Josh and I dressed up as an old couple, we looked pretty ugly!! But we had so much fun with it. My mom was a witch. Becky was a cute fairy. And Darren and Amber both wore some crazy looking masks and their cute little girls were M&M's. And last but not least we did dress up our dog Charlie for about 2 minutes and we put him in an angel costume. He was a Charlie's Angel!! I know it's cheesy but I think it's hilarious. Good things dogs can't talk, I don't think he would of been too happy with us. I think my favorite thing about Halloween is to see all the different costumes that everyone comes up with. I better start thinking about what we will do next year!!
