One Month

Can you believe it?? This month has flown by. Collins is getting so big and starting to be awake more. I am starting to learn the art of juggling two. Most of the time it's not to hard, but there is definetely moments of chaos! Collins has earned the nickname "love nugget" except when he is grouchy - then its just "nugget". I am still up at nights a good bit, but I am hoping that will be coming to an end soon. He loves to be held and snuggle! I am so excited for the holidays coming up and all the fun that will be. I can't imagine this holiday season without Love Nugget! This Christmas is going to be super fun with Jack too because he is old enough now to really "get it". He reminds us every day of what he would like.
In other news Me and Brendan got a crock -pot that we are obsessed about! After a delicious meal from Stephanie it inspired us to get one. Now everything needs to be cooked in the pot. Stay tuned for some delicious recipes we have discovered.
Other than that we are just keeping warm by the fire - that we basically keep burning all day long - and watching our boys grow.
Here are some 1 month pics of Love Nugget...
I made a bottle so Brendan could be a part of the feeding experience and Jack got in on the fun.

Notice there are no pictures of me? We are going to have to work on that - I am always the one behind the lens! Based on the pictures it looks like the boys are growing up without a mother!

Fireside Post

Well, Brendan and Jack are off to church and I am sitting by the warm fire listening to last weeks message . I cannot wait to get back to church. We were all going to go today, but I put it off another week because it is so COLD and I don't want Collins to get sick. I do look forward to seeing my fellow Highlanders next week! On that note, I cannot thank all of you enough for the great meals. Its fun getting a suprise meal, and we look forward to the yumminess this week.
Things have been going well around here. Collins is growing - he was 7lbs 12 oz this week. It kinda makes me sad - I want him to stay little. Sleep... well that is hit or miss. Some nights he does great - other nights - I am exhausted! Collins seems to think I am the snack shack! He does great in the car and sleeps most of the day. His fussy time is dinner time, but it can be overcome if your hold him. We are enjoying him so much! Jack is still doing great. He LOVES Collins! He kisses him, talks to him, gives him his paci. No jealousy - its wonderful! I have been shocked by how great that aspect is going. I can't believe how the time flying by. I am so glad that I am able to spend every second with both of them.
Hope everyone has a great week.

Don't blame me!!!

I voted for McCain!!!! Well all of my faith in America has been lost for today! I can't believe that enough people lack good sense, morals, and values. The sad part is this election shows the heart condition of so many people. People would rather have "change" than obey God when he clearly stated " If you love me you will keep my commandments". I hardly think murdering babies and redefining marriage are obeying His commandments. Obama is all about "doing unto the least of these"... I don't consider able bodied americans that refuse to work the "least of these". I consider sweet Collins who is unable to do anything for himself the least of these... and to think... according to Obama I had every right to murder him!!! It makes me furious and so do people who voted this man in office.... so if you did - don't tell me - or seriously it will make me change my opinion of you. =) I must say this has put EVERYONE in my family is in a bad mood. We have all decided to pack our bags and move to Mexico... housing should be easy to come by because I am pretty sure every Mexican lives here! WHEW, ok I got that off my chest. We must deal with it now and move on. Enough said.
