With Thanksgiving in my heart

Today was Adlie's first Thanksgiving! There are so many things to be thankful for this year and Adlie happens to be one of them! I will just list a few in no particular order of all the things I am thankful for this year!



Our new home

My wonderful family


my friend Kandis

cranberry seria mist

pumpkin pie

trader joes stuffing YUM

There is just a short list!I made Adlie an outfit for her to wear today and everyone LOVED it!She was such a good girl today. She tried alot of new foods and liked them all. She had turkey,ham,real mashed potatoes,sweet potatoes,green beans, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and cool whip! She let every one see all of her little tricks and even let them hold her and snuggle for a while. She also took a good hour nap! I am just glad we had a drama free Thanksgiving! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

(here are a few pictures of Adlie in her outfit I made her these were taken a few days ago I charged my camera and had it ready today and didn't even get around to taking any pictures!)

I hope you all have a very happy Thanksgiving!


(stay tuned for Adlie's 11 month {gasp} post tomorrow afternoon!)

Show us your life.... Pets!

This Week on Show us your life from Kelly's Korner the theme is pets! So here are our furbabies!

This black and white green eyed beautie is Sally. She found us nearly 5 years ago. She was a stray that happened to show up at my in-laws house and refused to leave. Which worked out well for me because I am a huge cat lover! but this little lady found a soft spot in Matt's heart and she is his cat. She chose him. He never really cared for cats but this little lady just loved him and wouldn't let him have it any other way. (click on the picture to make it bigger there are some great pictures in there!) Sally we love you big kitty. (She is also called MOO Squid and Sallster oh and fatty ding dong!)

This fuzzy sweet faced little guy is William. William is the newest member of the Merritt family. We got him early in October because Sally missed her best friend*who will be next to come on the list*. William loves Adlie and likes to snuggle with us on the couch. He is always purring and playing. He also likes to get under our bed and attack our feet from under the bed skirt. (He is also called Willard, Wee Willy Winker and Little Buddy.)

And this is the Late Dante. He was our kitty for 2 years then he got out of our apartment and got run over by a car :( He was my baby. (he was also called Doodle,Danteman, and Mr Man...)

There are our pets. If you want to see more cute pets head over to Kelly's blog and join in the fun!

Not me Monday...

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did NOT wake up a few days back to a small orange fluffy sweet kitten peeing on my down comforter!!! Nope not me! And I didn't carry him in to my husband for him to punish him either!

I did NOT eat a hot pocket for breakfast even though I made Adlie oatmeal and I surly could have had some for myself too!

I did NOT get to take a nice long nap this afternoon because Daddy has the next 3 days off and I needed some good sleep after Adlie decided waking up every 2 hours was a good idea last night. *thanks to William who thinks night time is play time!)

I am NOT almost done with our Christmas cards!!!

We are NOT driving out of our way later tonight to go pick up a video game at a midnight release! NOPE! (5 hours until L4D2!!!)

Well there you have it I hope you click the link above and go read more!

MckLinky BlogHop - Question?

Ok This should be easy I have a few questions. Adlie is 46ish days away from being a year old. Yes you saw that right 46 days ! So my first question is... What was/is your kids favorite toy at that age? What do/did you buy them for their first birthday?

And 2 days before our little lady turns 1 it will be her very first Christmas! I am so excited to start making memories in our new home with our little girl! So at this age did you do stockings for your little ones? If so what did you put in it ?We are not doing candy. I am thinking about getting her some cute clips and bows to go in hers but after that I am clueless. I know family will be starting to ask what she needs/wants for Christmas and really im not sure! Matt and I are getting her some clothes and a few big toys and then a few small toys but what should we tell family she needs. wants?
Also what are your fun traditions you do as a family on Christmas day? I think we are going to do family pajamas... we will get some that match and open them Christmas eve and wear them that night to open our presents in for cute pictures and I will make a big breakfast to enjoy while we open gifts then pack up the car for a 2 1/2 hour drive to my moms.
Ok well that was alot of questions feel free to pick and choose what you answer!

Friday, November 6, 2009


I feel like a bad blogger lately. I have not been posting as much because I am busy and we are dealing with some family things. I just ask you to pray hard for my in laws and will leave it at that. I have been making tons of bows and I am at a point where I am done for a while. (I love making bows but I have been making so many I need a break and a new hobby!)

I put our Christmas tree up and right now it has 2 strings of lights on it and that is all! It isn't even shaped! My living room looks like a tiny hurricane went through it(her name is Adlie btw).
Adlie is doing some modeling for an online boutique.... Matt is working a lot! It is just busy. Right now Adlie is sleeping in her car seat after a run to Best Buy and to Hobby Lobby. I will get her up in a few minutes I just needed to have a few moments to myself. I guess the cats may wake Adlie up before I get to they are running all over the place.

My heart is heavy over things going on with the family but I cannot do any thing and I really wish I felt ok enough to just let it all out here on my blog but there is so much that just is so hard to say let alone put in to words on the Internet to tell people I only call my dear bloggy friends. I am very thankful for a wonderful husband and I just hope his family will get things straight with God and the rest of the family.

Well Thanks for reading my ramblings. I hear a little girl who is due for some mama cuddling
