We had a lovely holiday.

I have so much to be thankful for this year.

I could go on and on listing the things I'm thankful for but most of all I am thankful for God's love and all of my blessings. If it wasn't for Him I would have nothing to be thankful for.

Like usual, my grandparents and all of their offspring and their offspring's offspring got together to feast. And this year we were lucky enough to host my mother and Scott.

Here are some pictures I took from our Thanksgiving.

I love my family.

We really missed Whitney & Josh and Aunt Tina & the kids.

Enjoying Life

Today Owyn and I went to Tempe Town Lake as the sun was setting.


I love doing things with Owyn but sometimes it makes me feel guilty.
Guilty that we are out enjoying life and Dave is at work, working hard to provide for us. I have never known someone who works so hard and doesn't really complain about it. He works sooo much and his job is very demanding. He leaves home before I even wake up (the alarm doesnt even make me wake up im so tired) and doesn't come home till between 6:30 and 8. Most days it's later than earlier. AND he goes in most Saturdays. Somedays I wish I could go work and he could stay home with Owyn but he's the better bread winner.

:( :(

I hope once I am done with school and get the job of my dreams, Dave will be able to explore his interests and fulfill his dreams. Because that's what he's allowing me to do.

Tempe Farmers Market

Yesterday I went to check out the new Tempe Farmers Market.
It is the cutest little grocer. They sell local produce, poultry, and dairy, and you can also find locally made products such as salsa, humus, tamales and much more.

They are open throughout the week.
I encourage you to go support our local famers and business owners.

A Day Spent with Owyn and the Canon: Part 1

All About Owyn

Owyn has been having a hard time transitioning to me working. He's so used to hanging out with mommy all day and and breast feeding and now at least 3 days of the week he is being watched by either Dave or one of the grandmas and eating from a bottle.

He has been upset and starting to want to be held at all times. If he isnt in our arms he's crying, which is sooo unlike him.

I am so thankful I have Dave's help and support. He has been having to do a lot more for Owyn on top of more cleaning, cooking, and all other house chores after long days of work.

Today I told my work that I need to work less and I am making this day ALL about Owyn. No cleaning, no homework, nothing (except this post).

Im not even giving him a chance to cry today. And let me tell you, he LOVES it! I have my happy baby again and theres nothing i love more than making him smile.

Indie Chic @ 10th

Craft fair! Who's coming??

Check out info here


Owyn thinks it's funny to flip over every time I set him down to change him.

He's right. It is funny.

And I get a better view of his dirty bum.

Finally the day has come.

My camera FINALLY arrived today.

And since Dave spoils me I also received a tripod, UV lens, awesome bag, extra batteries AND a remote control.

Here is my first pictures

Thank you Dave for all the great gifts. Especially for this sweet little nugget.

Go go go!!

And if you do go, make sure you check out Solo Cafe next door.

Silly Boy Barnslig

Everyday Owyn get's funnier & funnier and cuter & cuter. Everything he does makes me laugh. I am so lucky to have such a cool little kid.

He now laughs all the time. These are just a few of his favorite things:

looking at himself in the mirror, especially kissing himself

staring at me when I am not looking

being called a big boy

being talked to


being higher than you


watching tv

looking at trees

falling towards kisses

getting smacked in the face with a (clean) diaper

sticking his entire fist in his mouth

having his feet kissed

doing leg exercises

and anything that makes him feel like he's one of us big sligs.

That kid drives me crazy. I love him!

Exciting things are happening around here.

First of all, i finish my two intense accelerated classes this weekend so I am a free girl!! Well not exactly. I just stared another 2 accelerated classes but they aren't as intense.

Second of all I am an employed citizen! I wasn't looking for a job but I helped out the Lucky Brand store with inventory a couple weeks back and they offered me a position. Just a couple days a week to get me out of the house. I can't wait to start next Friday and work with my friend Skyler again.

Third of all
Dave and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary and he gave me ....

this Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi.

I am so so sooo excited, Ive been wanting one real bad. Good thing my camera crapped out on me.

Halloween is OUR special day.

Dave and I met (officially) on Halloween. It's the day that marks the beginning of our relationship. If someone told me back then while we were sitting on a trampoline talking about camping that I would be here with his child today I would not believe them. It's also (most likely) Owyn's conception date. So this spooky holiday is very special to us.

This Halloween we were invited to attend our friends wedding. It was Beautiful once I finally arrived( late I might add... very late). Dave played the Wurlitzer during the ceremony, I missed it but I wasn't that sad because they have been practicing the songs in my living room for weeks. We didn't have much time for costumes because we've both been so busy lately but when we went to a costume party after the wedding everyone was asking Dave if he was a nerd or a professor. But it was just his regular clothes. It was awesome.
