Oh Poor Bloggy...

How I have been neglecting you.  I have this little button on my Yahoo page that one clicks me to my blog.  I have been ignoring that little button every time I check my email.  If I don't click on it then I am not reminded that I haven't written anything in ages.  I'm not feeling too bloggy lately.  And the Jack-man is quite the free time hog.

That and all my free time has been spent planning the most super fantastical One Fish Two Fish 1st birthday party.  I really cannot wait to share it with you all!  Stay tuned...

We had a great Thanksgiving.  Our friend Jon came how from Afghanistan the day before and stayed with us for two nights, so it was just us and him.  But don't let the fact that there were only 4 of us fool you, we have more than enough for about 10.  I have a fear of running out of food and people going hungry.  And I love me some turkey sandwich leftovers.  So I slaved all day, those boys were spoiled, and turned out quite the feast.  Take a peek...

Needless to say, we didn't run out of food.  Again...  Ah well, at least I don't have to worry about dinners for a few days right? 

Today I accomplished an amazing feat.  At least in my book.  I ran 5.64 miles.  In a row.  Without stopping.  Crazy huh?  That's the farthest I have ever gone!  One week from today is the Savannah Bridge run and I am doing the 10K.  So looks like I actually might finish.  And not die.  Yippeeee!

Among some other exciting news, we will be going to NY for Christmas!  That makes us so incredibly happy you have no idea.  Christmas is our absolute favorite and the lack of snow in these parts really gets to us.  Christmas is already in the process of going up, yes it's a process, and Christmas music is in full swing around here.

Well I will leave you with one last cutest picture in the world of my almost one year old man!  Yikes!

Christmas Card Fun!

 We got our family pictures taken yesterday for our Christmas cards.  Just in time for this awesome promotion Shutterfly has going on.  Not only do they have different ways to earn free prints, but they are giving bloggers 50 free holiday cards!!  Learn more here:

I am a big fan of Shutterfly!  Jack has his own share site on Shutterfly!  Since our families live so far away, it's a great way to share his every move.  With just a few clicks, the Grandmas can ooh and ahh over all the cuteness of Jack.  I love the photobooks too!  We have ordered Jack photobooks for the grandparents and I made a wedding photobook to send to Bobby when he was deployed to Iraq.  He deployed 3 weeks after the wedding so didn't get to see the album the photographer made...

This will be the first year we send out a photo Christmas card.  Since we now have the most adorable little boy to show off, I am excited to pick out one of Shutterfly's gorgeous cards!  The only problem is the are SO MANY to choose from!  I want to send a different style to everyone we know, just so I don't have to choose only one!  Here are a few that I am thinking of getting...



Once we get our pictures back from the fabulous Jennifer Norton, I should be ready to decide!  Our pictures were taken at a Christmas tree farm so they should be very cute!  If you don't hear from me for a few days, it's because I'm looking through all 748 designs trying to decide...

1-9 FA Soldiers for Cake Boss

This is what our unit has been up to during the deployment.  I wanted to be home for the making of this video, but Jack and I were visiting family in NY.  Do you think we can get Cake Boss there??  We hope so!

Can You Guess?

Now I've made up my mind
For the day of Jack's first wish
And if you come you will find
You'll be playing with fish

There will be red ones and blue ones
Old ones and new
Some may be black
And some may be blue

We'll eat lots of cake
And have the funnest of fun
Cause there's only one time
When Jack will be ONE!

Can you guess his theme?

I'll give you one more hint, Jack must wear these to his party...
