What a Thanksgiving...

Last week was crazy busy for us!  Clynt's oldest brother and his family came in town for the week, so we spent Sunday night with them, and then went to the beach (where they were staying at my FIL's house) on Monday and came back on Tuesday.  It was super nice getting to see everyone!  It's always nice to see all of the family.  Clynt and I are very much family people and make every effort we can to spend as much of our free time with the mounds of family that we have.  I want for Corbin to grow up and know who all of his aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents are.  I want for him to know the importance of family.  This is all soooo important to us. So, every week is an effort to spend time with family.  So anywho, we spent lots of time with his family.   We came back Tuesday night and relaxed for a bit.

On Wednesday we did a little shopping and then spent the afternoon with my dad, who's birthday was that day.  My whole family got together and my dad cooked (I know that sounds bad, but he loves cooking) lobster and shrimp and then we all just hung out.  It was a nice quiet evening.

Then it was Thanksgiving before we knew it!! We got up and went and had donuts and kolaches with Clynt's dad, stepmom, brother, sister-in-law, and 4 of our nieces.  It was nice. We left their and went to have lunch with my family.  We had a Turduckin and it was AWESOME!  I really really liked it.  After a couple of hours their, we went home and packed and went out to Clynt's mom and step-dads house in Navasota.  We got their and just relaxed a bit.  Then had dinner their.  We went to Toys R Us that night and it was CRAZY.  Corbin was at the house sleeping with Clynt's family watching him.  We got their and the line was around the building, and back up the parking lot.  We stood in line though.  The line moved quick and we were within 25 people of the front door within 45minutes.  BUT- then the Fire Marshall showed up and made them stop letting people in until most of the people in the store were out.  So then we stayed in that one spot for another hour!!  Did I mention it was FREEZING outside and I was in a skirt and sweater?????  It was crazy... My fabulous husband ended up giving up his jacket for me but we were both still freezing!!.. Once we got in, we got a few things and checked out and went back to the inlaws house!  It was crazy!

Then Friday was too cold for us to do much of anything so we just really relaxed and hung out with family.  We went to Tractor Supply for a couple of little things, but that was about it.  Saturday we came home.  Then we went home and did a little shopping at home before going and having dinner at my parents again.

Then it was time to sleep.  I was sooooooo tired!!!  Now, we are back to reality.  I ordered Corbin's birthday invitations today, and Im hoping they get here quick because I need to get them in the mail ASAP being that his b-day party is in less than 3 weeks!  I am still in disbelief that my little boy will be 2 soon!!!

This Thursday is our big day at the genetic center, and we will have all of the results a few days later.  I am so excited to find out what we are having!  Then we can start planning on more stuff.

Well, Im tired!  Ill talk to yall later!

Oh Happy Day

Today has been a good day, although I am now in major need of a nap.  This morning, I contacted Clynt and told him how much I need some winter-y shoes with no heels.  Since I quit working, I no longer wear my heals hardly ever and since I am pregnant now, I am afraid I would fall if I try to wear some of them.  All of my shoes with closed toes and my boots and stuff are all heels, so I really wanted so boots that were flat.  Kohl's was having a shoe sale so Clynt told me that I could go for it!  YAH for me!  So I ended up getting 3 pairs of boots, a pair of sunglasses, and some socks and spent under $100.  I was doing so good!  =)  I will say that 2 of the pairs of boots are like slipper types of boots, but they are super cute and super comfy!  I love them!

Then Corbin and I headed out to Rosharon for a brunch with lots of ladies from the church.  My friend Jeanne built a beautiful home out there and so she had lots of ladies over to see it, and she had a trunk so with a boutique.  It was SO cute.  So I bought myself a couple of Christmas presents. =)   Its not like me to spend much money in one day, but today I just really felt like I deserved it!  Not sure why, but Clynt okayed it, so it was all good.  But, anyways, we had a nice afternoon, and Corbin was a bit wild and ran around a lot.  Jeanne's son was so nice and watched Corbin for a while so that I got some mommy time.  It was really nice to visit with a lot of ladies that I don't get to spend much time with.

So, today was a good day.  I am exhausted now, so I am going to call this post quits!!

I can't keep my eyes open!!~

I can't keep my eyes open long enough to blog or even think about blogging.  I am SOOO tired ALL the time.  I wish men could understand this feeling.  Clynt tells me that he is tired all the time, but he doesnt get the complete and utter exhaustion ALL the time that comes along with this blessing called pregnancy.  This pregnancy is definitely flying by so much faster than Corbin's did.  I am 10 weeks pregnant now (well, I will be tomorrow), which is completely crazy.  That mean's that we found out 6 weeks ago!  It does not at all seem like that long.  We have a doctor's appt next week just the hear the little peanuts heartbeat and then we have our genetics appt on Dec 2nd where they will be testing for the sex of the baby.  SOOOO we will know the sex of our little one in less than 3 weeks.  That is so so amazing to me, and we are really excited.

Everyone keeps asking what we want.  Clynt really would like another boy, and I for sure would like that too.  But I would not be upset at all with a little girl.  I think I would go broke buying so much prissy stuff for a girl, but the shopping thing sure would be fun.  So, either way, I would be happy, but I think that both of us would be ecstatic to find out we are having another boy.  We shall see soon!

Corbin is in a major mimiking stage.  He will copy anything and everything you say, so we are really having to watch what we say around him.  It is really cute most of time though!! I just love watching him grow.  He is such a sweet little boy.  His other favorite thing is peanut butter.  In the morning he always asks for his "peanut butter waffle", and then throughout the day he wants his "peanut butter crackers", or course he always says "please" and "tank you".   He is actually pretty well mannered.  At least for now.  =)  I just love the opportunity to stay at home with him and watch everything he does and learns.  It is SOOOOOO much fun and such a blessing!  LOVE HIM!

Well hopefully I will post a little more often.  I have just been so tired so every chance I have to blog, I choose to snooze.  I will try though.  The hubster is off all next week, so I hope to have a little more time to do some stuff. =)

What to say..........

Blah.  I can't seem come up with any thing to blog about (other than the baby and Corbin) so I will do just that.

I am 8 weeks pregnant today!  YAH!  Only 4 more weeks (and lots of prayers) until hopefully I am feeling upbeat again.  I am having a hard time cooking because the smells in the fridge make me sick to my stomach.   I don't want to give up cooking completely this time as I did when I was pregnant with Corbin, because now I have Corbin and I have to feed him!  Plus, Clynt keeps threatening me because he doesnt want to gain 15 pounds again this time around!  And I really DON'T want to gain 60!!  It was so hard to lose after having Corbin, and I don't want to have to do it again with 2 kiddos to be taking care of.  Although, this time, I am starting off with an extra 15 pounds that I have gained back in the past several months, so now it's time to eat right!  Interestingly enough, this time, I seem to be craving more healthy food, which is awesome.

Corbin is talking more and more everyday, and it is so much fun to watch him grow and learn.  I just love carrying on conversations with him and the way that he is able to tell me what he wants.  This age is so cute!  Yes, there are challenges (he is almost 2), but their are so many fun things about it too!  Things are just so funny and he is so entertaining.  He knows when he is doing something wrong, and he kind of wants you know it.  I was sitting on my bath the other day talking to the hubs on the phone and Corbin was looking at all the stuff on the counter in my bathroom.  He was turned around, but he kept turning his head and looking at me to grin and I could tell he was hiding something in his hands.  So I got up to look and he had my deodorant container in his hand.  He then starting busting out laughing because I caught him.  He is just soooo fun.  I love it!

Okay, goodbye for now! =)

The joys of pregnancy

Being pregnant and having a toddler is not near as fun as just being pregnant.  Morning sickness with a toddler is not anywhere near as easy to overcome.  When I was pregnant with Corbin it was so easy to just lay back down and relax.  Now, with have Corbin as an almost 2 year old and having morning sickness, their is no such luxury.  I have to get up and I have to go upstairs to get Corbin because I cannot just leave him in his crib all morning while I just rest.  Well, I guess I could, but it wouldn't exactly get me mom of the year award! So, this morning I was sick and then I had to head upstairs to get my little man.  At the first stair, I had to turn back around and head into my bathroom again.  I pulled it together and finally made it up to my little guy, but not with out having to stop upstairs in game room for a minute.  

Then come about 10:30am, I am TIRED, but I am not able to just nap because I have a little guy who wants to be running around like a mad man!  Although, when I got pregnant with Corbin I was in my last semester of college and taking 6 classes, followed by a summer of 4 classes.  Plus, I was working 2 part time jobs (not because I needed to but because one had just come up and I really wanted to do it, and I just didn't have the heart to quit it), so that meant I was full time in school and working 2 part time jobs.  SO, needless to say, I didn't get to nap a whole lot then either.  But if I was just having a bad day, I was able to skip school and stay home to relax.  I would say that this go around in the way of naps, I am better off now than I was, simply because I have a wonderful little guy that I can simply put down for a nap for a few hours after lunch, meaning I get to rest for a while.    So I can't complain in that way!

Anywho, now is that nap time I was talking about so I need to go do so, I just thought I would give a little glimpse into my morning. =)
