Well, its been a while since I've written. Who knew how much one little person could change your whole holiday season. Thanksgiving was kinda crazy but good. I had my family here which is stressfull enough but to top it off I wasn't sure we were going to be able to have any turkey! I got up to put the turkey in, the baby was actually still sleeping so I thought....hey, maybe I can get this done and go back and lay down for a little while.....nope! I have the world's smallest oven and while I had checked to make sure the turkey would fit length and widthwise...I had not thought that it could be too tall. I got the turkey in the roasting pan and put it in the oven trying not to burn myself (which I have done in the past) only to hear a sizzle as the turkey touched the top of the oven. I yelled for my husband to get up and I was tryin to get the bird back out but it was so heavy and I was about to cry. Well my husband was able to find another rack to put it on and it just barely fit. Surprisingly despite fire alarms going off most of the morning and trying to get everything ready with an 11 month old.....things came out really well. The turkey was great and Cam really enjoyed eating all the yummy food! Now comes the jam packed time of year though. Cam was born the day after Christmas and we're leaving for the Dominican the day after that.....crazy!!! I can't believe its already next week. We do Christmas Eve with my family, Christmas Day with my in-laws, then people are coming over our house for Cam's first birthday (still can't belive it) and then we're going on vacation.....On one hand I can't wait to just be there and relax but I'm also looking forward to seeing Cam experience his first Christmas and birthday! I'll let you know how it goes!


  1. Enjoy the holiday season, it may be very busy but it's always a thrill to see your child(ren) so happy and the first one is the best. They have no clue what's going on, they just know they like it! I hope you enjoy your vacation too!

  2. thanks so much! it was great...even if I had to open all the presents cause Cam was too busy playing with the bows!
