Recap of 2010

Happy New Years Eve! 
 As I sit here I am thinking about what all 2010 has brought.  It has been a pretty good year! Year in recap  (all I can remember and my memory is not that great)

Started my final semester of nursing school. 

I turned 24.

My niece Kylie was born!

Celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary

We took Caleb to the Grapevine Depot to see and ride Thomas the Train. He had a blast!  I think Caleb has a major slight obession with Thomas.

Not much to report, I was to concentrated on finishing school!

I graduated from Nursing School! Go me!!!  It was a long tough road, but totally worth it in the end.

  Started my internship in CVICU at a local DFW hospital.  I love love love it!  I am extremely blessed that I landed my dream job right out of nursing school.  CVICU, Days, and an awesome group of people to work with.

We spend alot of time at the pool.  Luckily my parents have a pool and they live close. Plus our subdivison has a community pool.


We spend July 4th out on Eagle Mountain Lake

We spent time and NeNe and PawPaws house. Caleb and Daddy had a great time fishing at "Caleb's Pond"  It is stocked with blue gills and it is just perfect for Caleb!  His paw paw is mighty proud! :)


After much discussion Matt and I decided to put our house on the market.  We both have decent drive to work.  Matt's drive is over 50 mile one way.  We figured we would try to see how it would do on the market. Well, we are still on the market on this last day of 2010.  The market is just not working with us right now. Luckily we don't have to sell we are more wanting to sell for convenience .
Matt turned 28.

We took Caleb and Drew to Great Wolf Lodge, they had a blast!  It is so family friendly, I highly recommend going!

Caleb turned 3.

We took our annual trip to the State Fair. This year we actually took two trips one with just the three of us.  And the other with Matt's parents.  Matt and his family always went to the state fair when he was growing up so I am glad that we have started that tradition with Caleb as well.

Caleb was a police man for Halloween. He was soo cute!  It was really fun this year, because 1. he could walk and didn't want to be held the entire time. 2. He was able to say "trick or treat" and people understand him.

 Had a great Thanksgiving with family. Not much really went on. Spend alot of time cleaning house for showings and getting ready for our Disney trip.


We took a family trip to Disney World.  It was a blast and I can't wait to go back.  I though Caleb's little heart was just going to explode with joy when he got to see the real life Mickey, Donald, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and Jessie.  I was so glad that Matt's parents were able to experience it with us.

Matt and I have both started new jobs that I think will definitely turn into careers.  I am so ready to see what 2011 has to bring for our family.

Getting Ready for Disney

Nothing new to really blog about.  We leave for Disney World in a few days, so I am running around feeling very over whelmed trying to get things packed and in order for a week vacation.  I have to pack for myself, Caleb, and Matt.  This will be Caleb's first time on a plane, and out first time with a three year old on a plane.  So I am trying to think about what to bring to keep him entertained things like
  1. snacks
  2. color and coloring books
  3. movies to watch on our iPhones
  4. Books
anything else..... I am up for suggestions. I am a little nervous about the plane ride.  But I can't begin to explain how excited  I am about going.  I am looking forward to seeing the look on Caleb's face when he see the castle, Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear and I can't wait to buy Caleb his first set of ears. It is going to be so fun!  I am sure I will have a TON of pictures and video when we get back!

Black Friday

I was scheduled to work on Black Friday and I was a little disappointed I wasn't going to get to go shopping.  But to my surprise I was able to be put on call at work and made a MAJOR dent in my Christmas shopping! Caleb will have a very good Christmas this year!  So far he is getting an iron man that walks and talks, an Imaginext Bat cave, a MobiGo and some fun clothes. 


I need to get some more stocking stuffers and just a few more little things but Caleb is done for the most part.  On the other hand Matt is so stinking hard to buy for. He won't give me any ideas as to what he would like.  Me on the other hand have a little list and hope to get anything or all of it :)

Christmas is so fun this year!

Random thoughts running through my head

1. Keeping up with a three year old is very hard!  I have my limits tested on a daily bases.  My prayer recently is that God will give me the patience to deal with Caleb.  I know this is just a phase that he is going through. I just can't imagine having a new born anytime soon.

2. Christmas is going to be so fun this year.  Caleb is so into it! Which is a total change from the past two years. He loves Christmas music right now, he feel asleep listen to here comes Santa Clause on Matt's phone the other night. Sooo Cute.  He tells me every day that Santa Clause is coming down the chimney and bring him toys.  He also tells me that he is going to sit on Santa's lap and tell him that he is going to ask for an Iron man and Henry the train.  Of course we have not been to see Santa, so we will have to see how he dose.  But until then I am totally enjoying Christmas this year! 

Oh and I almost forgot, I bought Caleb some Christmas PJ's this past week and he has worn them every night.  The first night he wore them and loved them so much, that the next morning he won't take them off and asked to just get dressed over his PJ's.  Too sweet.

3. Tom Hanks is one of my favorite actors!!  He plays such a wide variety of characters. Love his movies!!! You've Got Mail, The Green Mile, Big, Angels and Demon's, Forrest Gump, Sleepless in Seattle, Cast Away, Toy Story, Turner and Hooch, etc. Love him!!!!

4. I think I am at peace if our house doesn't sell.

Thomas the Train

We took Caleb to see/ride Thomas the Train in Grapevine.  Matt's parents came along for the day. Caleb loves is Nene and Pawpaw!  It was such a fun filled day. Thomas was in downtown Grapevine, the day consisted of taking a ride on Thomas, then we spent the rest of our time there in a tent.  In the tent there was about 10-15 tables set up with train track and all kinds of Thomas and friends, needless to say it was a HUGE little battle to get Caleb to leave.

Caleb and the TRE

So as of lately Caleb has had quite a HUGE little obsesion with trains! We got tickets to see Thomas the Train in Grapevine, but to warm Caleb up to riding an actual train we decided to ride the TRE.  Caleb had a great time, but half way through the ride he got a little restless so we decided to get off and wait for the next train back to downtown FW.

Caleb had such a great time!
My two loves! It was such a great day!
