My BIG Boy

There's my big BOY!!!

Dawson was three months old on January 17... This is crazy to me!! My brother Dodge and his wife Lindy gave us this cute little jumper he hasn't quite figured out how to constantly bounce on his own yet but he loves it when we make him bounce... he's so close! He is always jumping on my lap. Isn't this big boy so cute!?? I am guessing he is about 14 pounds right now he is getting so big! and so fun!
He loves to stand on the couch. he just leans up against the back of the couch and he can stand for a long time! We are so proud of our sweet little boy he seems to be so sturdy and strong. He has been holding up his head since he was born and just seems to get stronger each day. We are always discovering something else that he can do...

Yeah and Chad was distracting him so he began to fall towards daddy... Oh I love this boy!! Doesn't he just look like a little kid now... I don't even really think of him as a baby anymore...

About a month ago he really started playing with his hands and watching them and just last week he really started pulling his mommy's hair... I am thinking I may cut off my hair... It is a hard decision because I have been growing it out for a while and it is the longest it's been since I was in like 5th grade.

Chad's grandparents came to Othello for Parker's basketball game and it was fun to see and spend time with everyone. Above is a photo of all (well most) of the boys. Chad is freaking out telling me to put a picture of us up so here you go... We don't have many picture with me in them because it's either me taking a picture or Lisa and so when there is a picture of me it's usually when I am looking really awesome after a Sunday nap as you can see...

New Adventure for Me...

Alright... so beginning in February I will be starting my homeshows and selling Athome America products. Above is my personal Homestyle Specialist webpage... That's right you are looking at the newest Homestyle Specialist for Athome America, well that is if you were looking at me... I am very excited because the products are so awesome, that they pretty much sell themselves. Chad and I decided that we wanted to explore a few options to make a little extra money on the side to be able to do something fun like go on a vacation or buy nice furniture or maybe some nice clothes etc. so... this is something that I have always wanted to do but I never felt like I could... Well, I am going to JUST DO IT... I have decided I can do anything I put my mind to. So if you'd like to get on my emailing list for special sales or if you'd like to host a show let me know by emailing me at

Cricut, New Couch & We're All Smiles!

Okay, So I got a cricut for Christmas and today was really the first chance I had to play with it... below is a photo of what I put on my wall in my bedroom the "KISS" is 5 inches tall to give you an idea of how big this is... there is no border I just added that for blog displaying purposes. I have a feeling I am going to have vinyl all over my house :)

Chad's mom Lisa told us that her friend Amy was trying to get rid of a couch and that she needed to sell it. I asked how much she wanted for it and she wasn't sure I found out that it was a sectional and that she had it for about 3 years. Lisa said that it was in great shape... so I said well we'll be interested if she would give us a good deal...We agreed upon a price before we saw it and I am so glad we did because I would have felt super guilty offering her the amount that we did had I seen it first... so we went and saw it and I cannot believe that she gave us such a steal... it looks absolutely brand new. It has a hide-a-bed and 2 recliners and a really cool fold out table thing... WOW I am so excited my living room looks amazing!! LOVE IT, obviously so do my boys as you can see below.
Isn't it gorgeous!!!

Isn't he gorgeous!! I LOVE my happy boy!!
