9 Month Party & Thankful Hearts Article


I think Trent is most proud of Collins' 'high-five' accomplishment. Must be a guy thing. :) Collins started doing this about 2 weeks ago and we all just couldn't believe it! He picks up on things SO quickly! Kinda freakishly fast! He learned how to clap a week later and loves hearing our reactions when he claps. Such a silly boy!

The thing that's amazed me the most is how smart he really is. He watched my dad 'slam dunk' one of his basketballs into a bowl and Collins crawled over there and did the same thing immediately after! He surprises me every day with something! It used to be dirty diapers....but those are a pretty familiar thing around here. ha

So, back to the party! We themed it around his high five trick and had HI-C, FIVE Guys burgers, and because Thanksgiving is right around the corner....we celebrated how thankful we are for Mr. Collins with turkey cupcakes. :)

Just had to post a picture of the fries. YUM!

Relaxing with Aunt Sis! Thanks Mrs. Troop for the cute pjs!

Toyota celebrates their 25th Anniversary this year, so we were lucky enough to get to go to the celebration at Rupp! Trent doesn't technically work for Toyota, but his company staffs workers for Toyota, so they invited Trent. So sweet. He loves working out there and enjoys all of the people.

The best part is....Trent tells me Wednesday. If I would have known about this I would have told him immediately!! Hello?!?! Tim McGraw? George Lopez? He's not one to get overly excited about things like this, but come on!!! hehe It went something like this, "Saturday night there's an event at Rupp that we can go to. I have two tickets. Tim McGraw will be there, some magician, and George Lopez." Notice the period. No exclamation mark! haha Well, we went and I am SO thankful for the amount of fun that we had together. We had a blast. Free food, free parking, and a free concert. George Lopez made us laugh until our bellies hurt and we had fun singing along to Tim's classics. It was a great date night. xo

I'm so thankful for every minute I get these days with Trenty. When he's home, I'm complete. I'm so excited for a whole week with him and I am SO thankful for so much this Thanksgiving. My heart overflows with joy.

I fell in love with an article online. Here's a little bit of it. :) Do read, you won't be dissapointed. It's about being thankful for the wonderful gifts AND the unplanned and inconvenient circumstantances in our lives.

"As Americans celebrate Thanksgiving this month, many will reflect on God's blessings in their lives. It can be easy to appreciate the wonderful gifts God gives to us and the way that He provides for us. But I wonder how many of us are thankful for the unplanned and inconvenient circumstances which we may be facing. Scripture tells us to "give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV). "

With a Thankful Heart,
