Tis the season once again

I LOVE Christmas!! I know many people who love Thanksgiving and I like Thanksgiving (I like any holiday that brings my family together), but I adore Christmas! We have a lot going on in November for our family. It's my birthday one week, Thanksgiving the next week, and our anniversary ends the month the following week. Not to mention the numerous family birthdays in between. Last year we started decorating on my birthday mid month and this year we did the same. Some might say it's a little early, but I don't think so. I love it! I don't really care too much about my birthday's anymore, but this gives me something to look forward too again. November is such a busy month that I'd rather decorate sooner than later anyway, so we can enjoy the ambiance longer. The tree is up and so are all the adornments and lights... I love the lights.
Here is the Nuffer family Christmas 2010. This year we decorated Jackson's room with a little tree of his own (till …

My heart is full

I've felt very overwhelmed recently by all my many blessings. Daily I give thanks in my heart to Heavenly Father for blessing me with so much! It's not an odd occurrence to find tears in my eyes at 10:13am because I caught a glimpse of Jackson and he's just so beautiful that my heart is brimming over with love and gratitude for that simple moment of really seeing him. So I wanted to list a few things that I am blessed with countlessly on a daily basis.
First and foremost, Jim. I wish all women could have such a loving, patient, thoughtful, selfless man in their lives. Every morning Jim wakes up before me and gets up with Jackson so I can get a few more minutes of sleep. During those few moments in the early morning before Jackson is even out of bed he usually cleans any dishes left in the sink, or unloads the dishwasher, or makes Jackson's breakfast, or makes breakfast for me.

Halloween 2010

This year was a big year for my little lion. He actually understood... kinda, what was going on. He learned how to 'roar' and how to say, "Trick or Treat!". He attended several parties, carved a pumpkin with mommy and daddy, and handed out candy on Halloween night. This was a good year for Jackson.
First we started out by carving the 2010 jack-o-lantern. He was afraid of the pumpkin once it was carved, I find this very funny. He's a cowardly lion.


Then started our tour of Halloween parties in Lubbock. First, we played games and ate treats at the Library Halloween party, then we made our way to the Silly Carnival at the Science Spectrum, and finally we ended with Trunk or Treat. Jackson really like the Halloween games at the Library.



Next year will even be more fun when we have 2 little boys to dress for Halloween. On to Halloween 2011!
