Thanksgiving [part two]

After getting close to a foot of snow here, I shoveled the driveway, ate breakfast, watched cars,
ate lunch, put little man down for a nap,& packed. When Montgomery woke up we hit the road, heading downstate for the Kraai Thanksgiving party.
It's always good to see family that we usually only see on thanksgiving and Christmas!!! We had a good time, Montgomery loved all the people and wasn't shy at all!!! Then we walked from the club house to grandma and grandpas! We stay downstate at their house on Thanksgiving. He loves the snow!!!!

Montgomery sleeps in the closet of the bedroom, he went to bed at 10:30pm and silly stinker woke up at 6:00am.

Montgomery and great papa played

While Grandma and I looked thru old photos!!!
(My grandpa:front, dad: back, me on top)
My dad doing his job!!! Hard to believe he's been gone for 27 years. 
Then we headed home!!!
Guess someone was tired.... Imagine that?!?!

Thanksgiving [part one]

Sunday 11/24 was thanksgiving with my parents and family! It was a good day to be around family. The lions lost :( another game ended in a tie, strange. Had great food and a good time! So many things to be thankful for this year!!! And that's a good thing.

It amazes me how we measure time in years??? Everyone says my dad died too young, at 27. I'd agree! Today marks the 27th anniversary that he's been gone! So he was on earth for 27 years and he's been in heaven for 27 years! I miss him all the time. Today has come and gone, like it does every year. But it makes you wonder about time, about years, about how life and death measure up. I took my son to see his papa gene today, a snow covered stone. My son looks so much like my dad. I know life goes on. I can't change the past, even though I know we would all wish we could sometimes. ( go back and change one thing) but I know that all things happen for a reason and that our time here, is in Gods hands. He has a purpose for all of us. If you change one thing, something different would happen. 27 years is a long time! I could ramble on and on about all the good things that has happened since my dad went to heaven, and I could be sad about all the things I didn't get to experience with my dad. I was only 5 when he died. I'm now 32. I remember basically by pictures, and stories from my mom, grandparents, and aunts & uncles. So today is about remembering all the good times! 
I miss you daddy gene! And I love you❤️

When did I no longer have a baby??? My toddler can do 90% of the playground equipment all by himself. He can go up the stairs, down the slide! And get off all by himself! Your growing up so quickly my child. Be safe always!!! I love you!!!


I am so blessed to have such an amazing daycare. This isn't his first daycare. When Montgomery was 5 weeks old, May of 2012, I started working and I quick found a daycare without doing my homework! I stopped in to see him his 2nd day, and I pulled him from that daycare. I looked online to find another daycare, most were full until I called Debbie's Daycare! Deb, the owner said we could stop by later that night, and he could start tomorrow! It's 5 minutes outside of town, on a dirt road. Debbie has become part of our family! We see her 3 times a week at the least, many phone calls, the love she shows Montgomery and myself. Deb was there with her arms wide open to give us a place to stay after we left Holland. I'm so blessed to have Debbie, her family and her helper Teri in our lives!!! Thank you!!!

It was 50* degrees on Tuesday, so we headed to the park :) it was perfect! We also got to walk and see the ss badger! I'm loving this age, we rarelly take the stroller, he loves to walk and explore! Good thing we did go to the park on Tuesday, it rained all day Wednesday and then Thursday it was windy and chilly! Guess winters on its way!
