Ok, finally getting around to posting our Thanksgiving!

Every year we normally hit a couple of places to see both sides of the family. This year was SO nice because we had both sides of the family at ONE place =)

We went to my aunts house and Craig's parents, grandpa, sister and her kiddos came too! It was so nice getting to see everyone and not worry about rushing anywhere.

We had an awesome day and an amazing Thanksgiving dinner.

I slacked on the picture taking, but in my defense, it's hard to chase around a 1 year old and focus on anything but that! Working on it!

Here are a few pictures we got...

It was nice spending some time with the family. I am so thankful for everything we have. It's been a rough year, but I appreciate all that we have!!!!

A couple special dates....

WOW, I have been such a slacker on the blog thats nothing new these days. I love this blog and I love posting on it, I just havent had the time lately. By the time I get home and take care of all that needs to be done there and get my girl off to bed, I have just enough time to spend a little quality time with my man and since we are such light weights these days, we are in bed kind of early! I know, lame excuse, but its true! I will try harder!

So in the past few weeks not one but TWO very special occasions have taken place.
First, Daddy had a birthday! Thats right, Craig turned the big 3 4!

We planned on going to dinner that night, which was pretty brave on our part I guess you could say. We ended up booking Haileys 12 month check up on that day and we werent thinking about the fact that she would be getting shots and we would be home later than usual, etc so we opted out of going to dinner. Craigs parents and Grandpa came by to wish him a Happy Birthday and drop off a couple nice little presents for him. (Thankyouverymuch!) and visited a little with Hailey before she was out for the count. Shes always super tired after being at my aunt’s house all day (daycare) and throw a doctors appt and shots in on top of it she was one sleepy girl. So we ended up staying in and making dinner and hanging out together. I felt bad because Craig definitely deserves more of a celebration for turning 34... but it was nice. To be honest, the day kind of snuck up on us there was so much excitement for Haileys 1st birthday that daddys 34th kind of took a backseat but he was ok with that!

The next special occasion, if you havent guessed it yet
We celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary! Yep, 5 years! I seriously cant believe 5 years has gone by as fast as it has. Crazy. I feel so bad for not posting anything sooner. Big time slacker GAH!

Our anniversary ended up landing on a Friday night we were going to try to get away for a quick dinner, just the two of us, but on such short notice we werent able to get a sitter =( Bad planning on our part.

Sounds boring but we ended up staying home, getting pizza (again, poor planning on our part I wasnt going grocery shopping til the next day), having a little happy hour and watching a movie. Little Miss Hailey conked out early, so we had a nice quiet evening!

Well thats all Ive got for now the holidays are upon us, so I have more to post and I will try for sooner than later =)
