Success AND Pictures

Well my day really did turn out to be a success!

I woke up this morning and packed Gabe in the car and headed for the grocery store.
I have been making his baby food, and i needed to pick up some more fruits and veggies to get us through the holidays so i wouldn't run out. So $75 dollars and a trunk full of good for you food later we were headed home.
Gabe went down for a nap as soon as we got home and my mom headed over to help me tackle my morning/afternoon of baby food making! A couple things on the menu were: butternut squash with chicken and apples/ potatoes with peas and onions/ strawberries, pears, and prunes/ and oatmeal, apples, and apricots!
We really did have a fun time making all of it, and not only can I rest easy knowing exactly what is going into my little man's tummy, but I saved quite a bit of money and I now have enough food in my freezer to last for about 6 weeks!
After we were done making food I started day one of my "dont be fat any more" diet and had a lean cuisine:) and then here comes the other successful part of my day......I took duke AND gabriel on a walk by myself! If you know my C.R.A.Z.Y boxer at all you would know that this is a huge feat! I loaded gabe in the stroller and put Duke on the leash and off we went for a nice 35 minute stroll around the neighborhood; and it went surprisingly well! I even talked on the phone to Shan while i was out!HA

So that was my successful day, not fun and exciting for some...But for me it was quite enjoyable and reminds me that I am so blessed and the Lord is good!

Now for the pictures, the wonderful Abby Coyle took our pictures a couple of weeks ago and I just got the cd in the mail today, they are really great, and if you are looking for a photographer in the okc area she would be a fabulous choice. (wow, i just used A LOT of adjectives:)

ok i cant figure out how to get my text to be at the top and my pics at the bottom any suggestions would be highly appreciated... not a successful part of my day:)

ohh and i will post pictures of the houses that we are looking at soon!
