5 Things I Learned Today

1.I learned that trying to cut out and sew together little dresses is best done while Ryan is asleep. I get much more accomplished this way, and he isn't constantly pulling my scissors off my table.

2. My Christmas tree could use some major overhauling. Next year it is going to be my Kitchen tree decorated with Gingerbread cookie cutters and wooden spoons. As for this year, it is a skinny tree with lots of holes with LOTS of ornaments to make it look fuller.

3. Do not leave a ball of yarn out if I do not want it strolled all over my house. Wish I had gotten a picture of Ryan pulling it around the house. Boy was that a mess to clean up.

4. Sometimes it takes more than a few days, weeks, or months for God to answer prayers. This week God has answered a prayer that I have been praying for over two years. I feel that things are finally starting to look up for our family.

5. Don't leave anything on the edge of my kitchen bar because Ryan is now tall enough that if he stands on his toes he can reach almost to the middle of my stove. I am going to have to really watch him now.

My next blog will be about the new things that Ryan has been doing these last couple of weeks.

I hope you all have had a Scrumptious Sunday, Merry Monday, and Terrific Tuesday.

Damesworth Thanksgiving 2010

Little man woke up before mommy and Granny got his picture. 
 Granny with Drake. It is so good to have him home if it is only for the weekend. 
 Uncle D and Little man relaxing before lunch.
 Mommy I am filling my tummy.
 I had to throw in an obnoxious picture. :) 
Hope you all had a great Saturday!

What a beautiful day we had to spend Thanksgiving. I didn't get to take any pictures because my camera is messed up. I was NOT happy about that fact.
I got to help cook lunch this year. It was great to help my mom and grandmother make the day special. After my aunt Rebecca showed up things got interesting. All four of her great kids plus Ryan and Sara made for a LOUD Thanksgiving. We wouldn't have it any other way though. 

I think it is funny how after lunch all the men retire to the den to lay around and nap while all the women have to clean up the meal we cooked. But it's all good. 
My aunt Frankie and I went outside with all the kids and let them run around on the farm. Ryan and Matthew were constantly fighting over the Tonka dump truck. We are going to have to buy the poor boys another one. It is not a good idea to have ONE dump truck and TWO little boys under 3 years old. 
Sara and Olivia were as sweet as always. It's so funny cause after playing for a while, they would fight, then they were back to being best friends.

Poor Ryan got a bad rash from it being 75 degrees outside and his wranglers rubbed his legs raw. Poor thing I felt so bad. He seems much better now. 

Black Friday wasn't any fun for me because I had to work from 7 am until 1:30, however I did get to get a few items from work that I had been wanting. 

Today is Thanksgiving at the Damesworth's. I am going to try to take some pictures today. Promise! SO excited!

The Start of Something New

It's the start of something new. I have blogged before in the past, and I have decided that this is an easy way to keep everyone up-to-date on how fast Ryan is growing!
This is Ryan before he turned one. I am not on my personal computer so I don't have all the great pictures. I will try to get on tomorrow to put more recent pictures up. 

I was inspired to start blogging again by my cousin Jen. She has a blog It's a wonderful life and I have enjoyed reading all the things that lil' man does. I recently was on her blog and noticed she is having a giveaway for her small craft business GigglesnGumdrops. I love the things that they have. Can't wait to be able to order some things for Ryan.

I am going to have to post more tomorrow about this wonderful Thanksgiving we have had. 

Until We Meet Again ♥
