A couple of days ago he wanted Scott to play ATV racing with him. He calls it 3 wheels we have explained they are 4 wheelers but he refuses to accept this fact. Scott had to make some calls so I said I would play with him. They try to win so they can get more tracks and racers. My racing ability is lacking, to say the least, if I just finish before time runs out it is a miracle. Colton is very picky and wants to be in first place, gets upset if he messes up and all that kind of stuff so my racing is killing him. I am in last place running out of time and his face is like oh great! It just made me laugh to myself thinking of how many times in the future I will probably see that very same look. Not that I will love it when he gets older and it is oh great Mom how embarrassing but I just had a flash forward to the future I am pretty sure of that!
Just wanted to share some of our stories from this week.

Colton is now a pro at decorating trees. We put ours up and I wasn't really planning on decorating it all then but he was so excited he started getting stuff out of the boxes and placing ornaments on the tree and I just couldn't say no to that! We did this the week of Thanksgiving and yes I am just now putting up pictures, sometimes I am slow at getting things done. He also helped his Nona and Pops with all their Christmas decorating too. Poor Nona will probably have to redecorate several things but he had a blast. I guess next year he will be able to do it all himself or at least I am sure he will think so anyway. I just love seeing the joy in his face and the way it lights up while he does these kinds of things. That is what the meaning of it is all about.

Colton was not feeling well the week before and he was exhausted and really not wanting to cooperate but we did get several good pictures. I am really pleased with how they turned out so I wanted to share a few on here. I left out the Christmas card ones so the surprise is not ruined, lol!
His face in this picture says how he felt about the whole thing, it is priceless!
Happy Wednesday everyone!

I now have a niece!!! She was born Saturday afternoon to my brother and his wife. We get to see her this weekend, I am not sure I can wait but I HAVE to but for the record, I can't stand it! I can't wait to see her and hold her. She is their first baby so it is so exciting for them. Colton has 3 boy cousins on my husband's side of the family so a girl cousin will be all new. He loves babies and is so sweet with them. I am afraid she is going to be a little spoiled esp. by me!!!
I hope everyone had a great holiday. We had a lot of fun during our break. Friday shopping was so fun and entertaining. We now how more gifts than we know what to do with!! I love the holidays!!

I have many numerous things to be thankful for not only at this time of year but always. I take for granted how blessed I am. I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I can't wait for the early morning shopping on Friday! Good luck to all the fellow bargain hunters!

Right after we got there and unloaded heading to the beach.
Colton "catching" fish and playing in the sand.
Riding on the ferry to go eat dinner. I just love this look!
Lunch on the beach.
Waiting to eat dinner at the best place we ate the whole trip, it was awsome!
Getting ready to head home after we check out some of the shops. Sadly time to come home and back to real life!

Philippians 2:13-15 (New International Version)
13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
14 Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe
These last few weeks have been so busy and hectic around here and for many others too I know. It doesn't look like things are going to slow down with the holidays going to be here in the blink of an eye. 37 days til Christmas, I really don't believe that is true but it is!!!
I get so busy and bogged down with everything all the time and sometimes I get grumpy and complain, I know no one believes that, but it is true from time to time. It makes me think about the verse above. This week and during the busy, hectic, joyful, happy and sometimes stressful holiday time coming ahead I hope that I can keep this verse in mind and have the attitude that I need to have.
I hope that everyone has a great week!

This picture of Colton was taken when we went to the pumpkin farm with one of his friends and her mom. This day was a rare day off with no other kids and just us. Although Colton loves having his friends over everyday, Momma enjoys a break now and then with just her boy. I think he thinks that his friends are just here to play not because they have to be because their parents are working. It just reminds me of the little joys I am getting to share with him right now. In the day to day hustle and bustle of life I sometimes take these little moments for granted or think I am too busy and have too much to do to stop and enjoy it. This day we just stopped and enjoyed the day and didn't worry about what there was to do at home. I love days like this. Although we are always home together we don't get a lot of opportunities to go out and do stuff that is fun for him. I also just love the pictures and think they are so cute. You will start to figure out that I LOVE pictures if you look at my blog very much.

Above is a picture of Scott and Colton after he was born. We had a long rocky road getting Colton into this world. To me he will always be the little fragile 4 lb 7 oz baby but he is turning into this big boy. It is really hard on Momma. I look at his pictures when he is so tiny and it brings back so many memories and all the hopes for his future we had and still have. It is hard to believe how fast the time fies by. You go from the picture above to the picture below in the blink of an eye.
I love this group of pictures. The tux picture was taken at my cousin's wedding where he was ring bearer. He has been in 5 weddings, I will have to do a post about that one day with all his pictures. The middle picture was just a random picture that always brings a smile to my face his face just radiates joy and happines. The last one is the 1st day of preschool when he was 3 and is just so him. He is a true blessing to us. I love the fact that I can be here for him right now but know one day he will be a truly BIG boy and I will have to let go. I know wI have to take little steps along the way and I am not ready to give up my baby yet. Daddy is excited about him getting bigger and wanting to do stuff with him. I am very proud of my boy who will to me always be my baby boy.
This was a week of a lot of blog firsts for me! Today was my first Photostory Friday

1 Chronicles 29:11-13
"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.
Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.
Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name."

I now present to you my 1st Wordful Wednesday post!!
Colton got a Halloween card from his Nana and Poppy with a dollar bill in it. We opened it, read it and set it aside. Later that night he showed his Daddy his dollar. He called Nana and said thank you. She asked what he would buy which included stuff way over his dollar!! She said she might have to send more, lol!! She asked if he like the card or the money better, his reply was I like the card and the money. She finally got out of him he liked the money best. Daddy tucked him in and when I went to go check on him this is what I found. It was so priceless I had to take a picture.
