Wow. Today marks 3 years of being married to my best friend! Can't believe time has gone so fast. I couldn't have asked for a better or more loving man. Tommy took me out for a nice evening on the town. Colin was at the babysitters! We are not the real fancy type to go to places like Olive Garden or whatever, so we went to Denny's! I love Dennys. It was nice. Then he took me shopping at a couple different stores. He even offered to buy me shoes! The only problem with this evening was it went by too fast! Gotta love that man of mine!

Friend or Foe?

We were at my parents for Thanksgiving and had a great relaxing time. Well...Tommy had to deal with my cat, Tink. It wasn't that bad though. Tink is 16 years old and deaf. It's really quite sad, but he wanted to sit on Tommy's lap and finally managed to without to much of a hassel. I thought it was cute, but something tells me that Tommy wasn't quite thrilled with the idea.

Don't they look adorable?

Tink gives Tommy the "evil look"

Ok, they can handle this...I think!

Time To Give Thanks!

Well, that time of year is here again. Time for turkey, mashed potatoes and pie. It's also a time to give thanks for everything. So I want to say that I'm thankful for Jesus being my Savior, and also for a wonderful husband and little boy. There are many friends that I'm so glad I have. I couldn't begin to name them all, but they all have a special spot in my life. I hope this Thanksgiving everyone of you can think of several reasons to give thanks to God for all He has done.
Our little family is having Thanksgiving dinner with Tommy's family tonight and then it's off to PA to visit with my family on Thanksgiving Day. We may be there all the way till Sunday. It will be so nice for me to go back "home" for a few days. Until next week! Oh and don't eat too much pie! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Post Election

Well, Obama made it. Not that I'm happy about it, but there is a reason for everything. I didn't even hear his acceptance speech. It was too depressing. But I've decided that he's not going to change the person that I am. I still have a wonderful husband and little boy who makes me smile even in the discouraging times. Kids have a way of cheering their parents up. Their lives are so care free and innocent. No worries about Obama being the president or anything. I still have good friends and great family, so I will go on living my normal life as usual.

McCain Rally

This was our second rally in a week. We got to go to Hanoverton to see McCain. That was a tremendous experience. His wife and daugher were there as well as Rudy Giuliani. We got there so early that we got the front row. Exciting! We got to shake hands with John and Cindy McCain and Giuliani. What a day to remember!

Our Next First Lady. She hugged me!

Rudy Giuliani introducing the next President of the United States.

And here's our man...John McCain

Blake is happy to get Giuliani's signature

Up close and personal. This is right before he shook our hands. The security is amazing!

Sarah Palin...the next Vice President

We went to a Sarah Palin ralley near Pittsburgh on Thursday the 23rd of October. It was so much fun. I've never been to a ralley before so it was an awesome experience. Sarah is so wonderful. She's so honest and tells it just how it is. We were fairly close to the front so we got to see her close up. We sure are hoping and praying McCain and Palin get into office because if anyone will try their hardest to make a difference in our country, it is THIS WOMAN behind the scenes of John McCain.

The crowd goes wild!

Some friends (and my handsome husband)

Look who else was at the ralley! There were a lot of holiness people there supporting the republican party!

A Weekend at Grandma & Grandpa Palmer's

Fun with Friends

Tommy playing his favorite sport...B-Ball!

A good friend of mine, Sandy

It looks like Colin is not very happy, but right before this picture, he really put his head close to Sarah's just to kinda cuddle a little!

Our Little Cutie

On the road again taking the ladies trio to a service. What fun with my bouncy ball.
Very Happy Boy (at this particular time anyway)

Playing in the rocks is his favorite thing besides food.

Just hangin' out in the grass

Better Late Than Never!

Hey Everyone! It has been quite a while since my last post. This whole summer went by and not a word was spoken about it! I received a couple comments from people who wanted to see something else besides Wesley everytime they viewed my blog :) Some new pics will be up shortly. Patience is a virture, right? :) Not giving any excuses, but this past summer was more hectic than ever. Tommy and I traveled with the college ladies trio, I worked at the bookstore here and at camp, and of course my most important job was being a mommy! Our little guy is growing like a weed. More updates later!

Some Recent Shots

Here are just a few pics of different things...mostly Colin. We can't believe how big he is getting. 10 months old already. Time flies, but our time with Colin has been the best part of our lives. I can't imagine not having him around.

Colin with his buddy Wes!

My two Handsome Men

If you look closely, you will see we have a one toothed monster.

If he can be on the 4-wheeler, he's a happy boy!!

Here are two of Colin's best pals! He loves Erica & Christopher and always gives them smiles. Both sets of parents think without a doubt that these kids are definitely the Cutest!

Daddy's Little Man!

Colin absolutely loves the lawn mower...especially when he gets a ride from Daddy! It was a bit chilly this evening (that's the reason for the blanket).

Memorial Day

We got together with Tommy's family for Grandma and Grandaddy Sanders 50th wedding anniversary. It was a fun evening. Colin was just showing off as usual in front of anyone who will watch him. He's our adorable little boy. Can't help but love the little fella!
