absent much..

holy cow it has been a whirlwind couple of weeks

my biggest and best excuse is 
so if there is any homework putting off to do...it's been spent with him :)
otherwise the usual school, work, student teaching stuff.

however we did somehow manage to sneak home for a bit for the holidays
and when i say bit...it's more of a bit of a bit
we drove a total of eleven hours to be in our home town for less than twenty-four 
it was a crazy, fast paced but much needed adventure.

the in-laws...aren't we a cute bunch?

here's our other 'christmas card worthy' picture
my parents were being beach bums in mexico
so we spent our quick thanksgiving with the boy's side of the family.

of course a trip home wouldn't be 'a trip home' without seeing all my favorite kids
henry and his so serious face :)
couldn't catch a picture of ty without it being blurry..haha what's new!

my sweet sweet god daughter.
thanksgiving morning the boy, his best friend and i ventured out to the brand new swanky safeway in town
picked up some doughnuts and starbucks for our good friends and surprised them with a 
'thanksgiving miracle' if you will.
first doughnut experience for peyton...she was a happy girl.

well i did take the morning off so i could bust out some assignments
...weird that i somehow found myself doing the blog thing... :)
i can't wait to catch another break and catch up on my blog reading
and add some christmass'ness to the home
{currently there is candy corn, snowmen and framed leaves on my shelves}
poor apartment is confused. 

happy belated thanksgiving.


  1. Looks like the perfect weekend! SO happy your boy is home!!!

  2. What a sweet post! Glad your man is home safe and sound. :)
