Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving~I know everyone is probably blogging away about what they're thankful for this year and yes well I am going to follow this trend so here we go :)

1.) I am thankful that I get to be the mom to as my husband puts it "the coolest little boy in the world". I can't even remember what life was like without him in it. I treasure everyday the love and happiness he brings to Rocky and I. He's growing so fast!!! Thank you Dalton for making my days brighter...kisses sweeter and playing cars the best part of my day.

2.) I am thankful that I have a wonderful husband who always thinks about his family first. ALWAYS! Sometimes I take you for granted!!! Trust Me I Do!!! Thank you for the love we have shared for 8 1/2 years. You're my best friend and you complete my world!

3.) I am thankful for my crazy...but wonderful family. Yes ALL of you! I know we don't get to see each other as ofter as we'd all like but always know that you're always in my thoughts and prayers.

4.) I am thankful that I got to spend 8 1/2 years with the first woman of Rocky's life. Twister our dog who recently passed away. I miss your kisses in all their slobbery mess. I know you thought you were human and we did too. The love you gave will never be replaced.

5.) I am thankful for my Job as I enter into my 11th year!!!

6.) I am thankful for Myspace...yes...I said myspace...I have been able to re-connect with so many old friends through Myspace.

7.) I am thankful that I get to hang out my girls! I'm so excited for girls nights and I truly believe every mother and wife needs to remember that she can still be herself every once in a while.

8.) I am thankful for my bestie Kriste...yes we live 6 hours away from each other...but every since that friendship began in the 5th grade we have always had that connection and nobody will every understand it. Ya you remember that Thanksgiving break during our senior year...I'm glad I had that traumatic experience on the highway with you. You're the only person who really gets me!

9.) I am thankful for having a nice house to call my home. Yes it may not be as big or as decorated as I dreamed...but it's ours and it brings my little family all the room to be together that we need.

10.) And lastly I am thankful for my faith. We haven't gone to church very often this year and yes there are a million excuses I could give...but I'll keep that to myself. As well start into this holiday season let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving from my family.

Twister Evans...RIP

This is so hard for me to write...Our beloved dog Twister passed away in the middle of the night between Monday and Tuesday this week. She was 18 years old and Rocky has had her since he was 10 and she was 6 months old. She was not a dog...she was a real human person in our family. While Rocky has stories that date way back futher than when I was ever around...I can only write about my love for her in the 8 1/2 years that I spent with her.

I remember when she first moved in with us. She had been used to living in the country at Rocky's parents house, the first week she lived with us...we had let her stay outside all day and when we got home she was nowhere to be found. We thought we had lost her forever. Then she just showed back up and from that day forward we never let her out of our sight again.

This is where my strong bond with Twister began. I always would take her for her walks...we would race each other and at that time she would always win. Her kisses were the most slobbery kisses and while most people would say how gross...not me...I always wanted more. She always slept in our bed!!! That was her one bad habit. She never peed in the house or tore up anything...she just liked to sleep in bed with us and we loved it too.

When I was pregnant with Dalton every day during lunch I would come home and Twister and I would lay on the couch and watch our soap's together. I think she was the first to feel him kick! When we brought him home from the hospital she was so curious of this little boy but took him in as her own.

Her loves were Rocky...Me and Dalton...Sausage Gravy...barking at the mail man...laying in the sunshine...having right behind her ear scratch...kisses and more kisses...cuddling...rides in the truck and walks.

Luckily this weekend I had made gravy...she got to bark at the mail man...I slept on the couch with her...and Rocky and Dalton spent the whole day at home with her on Monday.

We didn't expect at all that she would leave us this soon...yes i know she was 18 but we just figured we would have a little warning...but we didn't see it coming. Tuesday morning Rocky found her asleep forever in our living room in one of her favorite places.

I know I could go on and on and on forever talking about her. But I can no longer see the computer screen through my tears. She will always hold a portion of my heart.

Why or Why Does He Have To Grow Up?

Dalton is just the pride and joy of my life and I make myself crazy thinking about him growing up. It's happening way too fast!!!! It's no secret that he could very well be the only offspring of ours (unless somebody can foot us $250 a week for daycare...please) which is why I am trying to treasure every minute...even the not so wonderful...I have a screaming naughty toddler ones. Anywho last night listening to Trace Adkins performing "You're Gonna Miss This" on the CMA'S just made my heart melt and brought tears to my eyes. I just wonder now how my parents and grandparents feel watching their children raising children. Ok...enough blubbering now...here's a couple of cute pictures of my cowboy from Halloween with cousins Tabrie and Landon since I haven't posted them yet.

My husbands birthday...step siblings birthday...Dalton's 3rd Birthday...My dad's 50th birthday and my sisters baby shower. That's not what this post is about though. You see since I live in a small little town 20 minutes from great shopping and I have an almost 3 year old who is impossible to shop with and a husband that works weird hours...I have been doing most of my Christmas shopping online. But I'm getting cash back with it too...and THAT is what this post is about. You see there is this wonderful website called EBATES.COM they have hundreds of stores that you can shop at Victoria's Secret...American Eagle...Kohls...Walmart...Target...you name it they have it...anyway each store you can get a percentage of you're purchase back in $$$$$ you get $5 just for signing up and making a purchase and if you sign up through me I get $5 too! Check it out!!! And Happy Shopping <3
