a little explanation…

January 26th, 2011 — 11:28am

Recently I gave up using Facebook….recently as in today. 🙂 I thought I might add in a little explanation as to why I chose to do this.

Since I have become a stay-at-home mom I have been noticing something about myself. It seemed like in any spare moment that I had I would jump on Facebook. I soon started to notice that this became a bad habit, and a big waste of time.

I love looking at my friends pictures and seeing what’s going on with their lives. But what I realized, after chatting with Andrew, was that I was only gaining information about my friends and not really knowing them anymore. That realization made me so, so sad. I’ve let Facebook take the place of keeping up with my dear friends and I just can’t have that any longer.

Plus, there are so many other things I can be doing instead of wasting time on Facebook. I need to start sewing, I want to make more bows, I want to spend more time playing with Abby….and the list could go on and on.

So, that is me right now. Choosing to do more with my free time and to really “know” my friends again.

Christmas Day

January 4th, 2011 — 10:20pm

We spent Christmas day over at my Aunt Mel’s house. We had a great time visiting with everyone, and Abby had a great time being held by so many people! She also got her first bag of stocking gifts! I not so secretly had so much fun opening them for her!

Here are some pictures from the day:

It was so fun having Abby around this Christmas….I can only imagine the fun we will have next Christmas when baby Kaitlyn is here! Can’t wait for that!

Thanksgiving, Christmas and things in-between

January 4th, 2011 — 1:53pm

Since I am so behind on blogging I decided to just give a brief overview of our holiday season with pictures, and maybe some words here and there!

We spent Thanksgiving with Andrew’s family….we all had a wonderful time. There was lots of food, fun and laughter! It was great to catch up with everyone and spend some time with Matthew and Joseph. Here are some pics from our trip:

Now to Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve, Day and a couple of days after with my family. We had a great time….it was really fun celebrating Abby’s first Christmas….the girl really loaded up on the presents! After Christmas we came back to Waco for a couple of days then headed up to North Richland Hills to be with Andrew’s family. Once again, Abby got some great gifts and we had a great time with family!

Here are some pictures of our Christmas celebrations!
