We had a nice Thanksgiving weekend but sad it is over!!!
Macey and I enjoyed having Christian home with us. This Thanksgiving was extra special because it was Macey's first! We went to my aunt's house for lunch on Thursday. I didn't reallly take that many pictures this weekend. I was too busy eating and visiting with my family!
We had such a busy weekend and Macey did great! I had family in town from Indianapolis so visited with them alot. We celebrated Thanksgiving, shopped on Friday, and Saturday we attended my cousins college gradauation party. Poor Macey got passed around so much but she was a trooper!
My friend Amanda was in town with her husband and little boy this weekend.
Her MIL made Macey this sweet little candy cane hat!!! I just love it!
Here is Macey with her future boyfriend (Amanda's little boy). Amanda have an arranged marriage setup for these two and plan on using this picture at their reception..HA!
We have spent the day at home today and decorated for Christmas. It is nice to be finished decorating. I will hopefully post pictures soon.
I have to start packing because we are going to visit Christian's family in FL for a few days. I'm kind of nervous about packing for a newborn. I'm sure I will end up taking everything. I'm also a little worried about a 10 hour car drive with her but she seems to like riding right now.
I'm sure all you have seen where Shutterfly is doing 50 free Christmas cards for bloggers!!! I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by since I have a sweet baby girl to show off this year and Christmas will be here before we know it. I am looking forward to using Shutter fly for our Christmas cards this year and I can't wait to do a photo book also. Photo books are my favorite and make such a great gift. I plan on doing one of my pregnancy and Macey's birth soon! I'm sure I will be making photo books all the time for myself and Grandparents. There are so many cute designs this year and I have no clue how I will ever decided which design to use. Here are a few of my favorite designs:
I love the colors on this card! I like the brown and teal with the red.
I love the little deer on this one. This will be cute with a picture of Macey and Buddy.
I love how this card has the photo as the main focus! I would use a family photo for this design.
I also really like this one instead of a Christmas letter. I could share about Macey's birth, our first year of marriage, and of course Buddy!!!
There are so many other cute designs! I plan on having a little photo shoot with Macey this week and I can't wait to get started on our Christmas card for 2010!

We have a had a busy weekend and I'm exhausted! Luckily Macey and I took a 3 hour nap this afternoon and it was much needed.
This weekend was Christian's college homecoming so we have been on the run going to the football game and hanging out with everyone in town for it. Christian was the proud dad and was so excited to show Macey off to all his college buddies yesterday.
Here we are before dinner last night!!! I actually felt human like again this weekend and it was nice to get showered and dressed and go somewhere!!!
Daddy and his girl!!!!
My parents watched Macey for us last night for about 2 hours, so we could get out for a little bit with friends. I missed her like crazy and watched the clock the whole time, I was so ready to get home to her. I only called twice to check on her. I was proud of myself.
We bought this hat for her last week because it has been so cold here this weekend and I just love it on her. She is just a doll!!!
Christian went back to work yesterday and it was my first day alone with Macey. I was a little worried about how things would go, since I still need help doing things b/c of my c-section.
Well Macey was wonderful and easy, but I still had to call poor Christian home from work b/c of my darn incision. It was leaking yesterday and the doctor wanted to check it out. That doctor said I have wound seroma, which is where fluid builts up around my incision and it has to drain. She told me to take warm showers and hold a heating pad on it and I think it is helping b/c it has drained a lot. Kind of gross I know and I'm sorry it is TMI. It doesn't hurt, just gross and annoying. I'm praying that it heals soon and I don't have any other issues with it.
Today Macey and I have been hanging out around the house on the couch. It is kind of cool out and I'm exhausted. She didn't want to sleep that well last night and she has been fussy today.
No matter how tired I am or how much I have to go through this sweet little baby girl is 100% worth it and I wouldn't trade it for the world. My life is so complete with her here!!!
Also, on another note....we haven't forgotten about our 1st baby. Buddy spent a few days at my parents at first, but I think he is glad to be home. He is adjusting well to his little sister, but I feel bad I can't give him as much attention that I use to. I know in time and when I heal completely things will get better.
I am married to a wonderful guy, someone I know God created just for me. We have a beautiful baby girl!!! We also have a sweet black lab named Buddy, who we love more than the average person. I love TV, shopping, traveling, my family & friends, learning to cook, dressing up, going out to eat, talking, laughing, the Beach, Disney World, and my life. I feel blessed to have the life I live!
