It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It's Christmas time in the Williams home!! We spent all day yesterday decorating the outside and inside of the house. Now it feels like Christmas! :-) Abigail loved it of course and put all the ornaments on the bottom. lol She said "what do you think? " I said "Baby it's perfect!" She is very proud of her hard work. She also painted some ceramic ornaments that I picked up for her. I need to take some pics today of them. Overall it was a great family day! I love this time of the year!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

We were going to have the big traditional dinner at my family's house then Abigail came down with a cold. She woke up this morning not feeling well and I didn't want to get anyone else sick or have her miserable and not at home. We have plans for dh's family tomorrow, so I hope she's better. I have to have some turkey!!! lol Jason's sister, husband, and daughter are in town from Michigan and Abigail loves her cousin Jessica!
I have a lot to be thankful for right now. We had a rough year but truely are blessed. Last November 7th Jason was laid off. I have no idea how we made it and still have our home. He just started working about 8 weeks ago and I feel that God dropped that job in his lap. And I thank him daily. We have our family, our health, home, love for God and each other. It truely is a Happy Thanksgiving!

Children sleeping in bed with you

Lately it seems everyone has a comment to make about Abigail sleeping with me. I don't understand why people feel the need to voice their opinions especially when they are negative. I remember when she was around 6 months everyone was saying she needed to learn to go to sleep on her own. "Let her cry it out" I believe is what they said. I'm sorry but at 6 months old babies don't need to cry it out or comfort themselves. All they need to know is when they need their mommy, she's there. I still feel that way now even though Abigail is four. It such a short time that they what to cuddle, why not enjoy it? I know eveyone parents differently, but I would never say anything negative about how someone parents their child. What has me thinking about this is that I have baby fever really bad. We have been talking babout having another baby. I have been thinking off all the things I would do this this time around. Sleeping arrangements would not change. That's my opinion for the day. lol :-)

Today was such a good day! Abigail and I went over to my friend Beth's house. She and I have been friends since 2nd grade. She was my Maid of Honor at my wedding, I love her to pieces. She has two children, Alexis and Anthony whom my daughter loves to pieces. Abigail had a blast playing with them and I had a great time talking to Beth.

Abigail and I are watching The Cat in the Hat so I leave you with photos from today. :-)

*sigh* Christmas Shopping

I started Christmas shopping earlier this week. I only got the few items pictured plus some My Little Ponies and cars and it was already 230.00. I am going to spend a fortune this year! Abigail was just making out for list for Santa and so far I did good. yayyy for Mommy! :-) She still wants 15 other items. Plus I have one other big items for her that I am trying to get, a Bamboletta doll. When does it stop? Please tell me I'm not alone in this madness.

Playdate and making a new friend

We had another park playdate with Abigail's best buddy Cole. They have such a good time together. I keep saying they will get married one day. They are too cute together!

After the park we went to the Mall for some shopping and mommy/daughter bonding. Abigail is a great shopper! :-) She picked out a dress at Gymboree. It's very pretty and of course I couldn't find her size anywhere. A wonderful friend, Marla, who I met on LLS, picked it up in KC and is shipping it. I have met the nicest, most generous ladies on LLS. THANK YOU MARLA!!!! And here's the dress......

Abigail has been really wanting to make Frosty the Snowman at Build a Bear. I finally caved in and she is in love with him. :-) It was her turn for Show and Tell this week at school and she brought him. I'm sorry to all the parents that have to go to make one now. lol

Overall it's been a great week so far. I hope it gets even better!

Fashion Update......

I have really fallen behind on the blogging but I do take daily photos of Abigail's outfits. She rarely wears something more than once or twice so taking photos makes me feel better about it. :-) Some outfits from the past couple of days...

2nd photo is Janie and Jack Parisian Park with knee socks. I LOVE knee socks. Target Mary Janes
3rd photo is Matilda Jane Chrissy dress w/ stripe leggings. Target fake Uggs. I love Target shoes. :-)

Grandparent Day

Weds was Grandparent day at Preschool, so Paw Paw went to school. :-) Abigail was SO excited! They made a turkey picture together and had Teddy Grahams. Does it get any better than that? I love how close my father is to my daughter. It gives me a wonderful feeling to see the bond they have. I was close to my grandpa and I miss him a lot! Thank God for grandfathers!
