The two G's


This is by far one of my top most favorite photos of all time. My little baby boy with my brother - the two G's - Gabe and Grayson. The G-Man and G-baby

Saturday, my brother will begin his second deployment to Afghanistan. This was a very sudden move that was announced just days ago - so it's a little shocking to us. I'm so sad that I don't get to see him before he goes, but, it looks like his visit will *only*  be for a couple months. Obviously, that doesn't make it easier.  So let's hope/pray/meditate/ for a safe visit and quick return back home. 

I'd be mushier but I think my brother would roll his eyes a bit. So on to happier things. 

Tonight/Tomorrow begins some crazy. 

Even though I don't actually work tomorrow, I'm stopping in for lunch (yey!) and to give my Secret Santa her gift. I'm also going to attempt to start baking some cookies for Christmas...this all really depends on how G naps during the day. If he naps - I bake cookies. If not, NO COOKIES. I also have some last minute odds/ends christmas stuff to pick up..which will most likely be delayed until Sunday since it's pretty much impossible to run errands with a 16 month old. He's so movey. (yep, made up a word) Movey = moves a lot and doesn't want to all.especially in a store.

Saturday morning we're meeting up with some church friends and their little boy, Dylan, who is 2  - at EnterTRAINment Junction. I am SO excited for this little date. I'm sure to have tons of pics from their little adventure. Afterwards we are hoping G will take a good nap and be totally refreshed to attend John and Laura's annual Ugly Sweater Party! Oh MY...I cannot wait to see everyone's sweaters - especially all the KIDS sweaters. There are going to be a LOT of kids this year. (p.s john and laura - I stalked the evite and you guys are going to have a FULL house:) This is such a fun event every year and there are definitely some peeps who get really really creative. 

Sunday = baking until I can't bake anymore. REALLY. Cookies need to be made.

This week we will patiently wait to see Aunt Dani, Uncle Scott and Cousin Felix who are coming sometime, maybe around Thursday. Then Aunt Heda, Aunt Holly and Stephen will be coming sometime AFTER Christmas. 

A quick recap of this past weekend..

We went to Dan's work party and got to hang out with Lisa and Chris. You know, some of our favorites. 




I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Sorry to hear about your brother having to deploy again! My thoughts and prayers are with him!

  2. I'm pretty much obsessed with your hair cut!!
