quick little update

hey there! sorry it's been so long since i've posted. we have been so busy these last few months. here is a quick recap of what you might have missed.

last halloween, gavin was too sick to go out and get dressed up. this year, we made sure to go trick or treating with him. we went over to my sister in law's house and walked around with her kiddos while the men sat outside, handed out candy and watched football :) gavin fell asleep by the time we got to the end of the street, but i like to think he enjoyed himself.

my little monkey :)

at the pumpkin patch

gavin also got his first haircut! we took him to a little salon called cool cuts for kids. i spent just under 60 bucks by the time we left there. haircut, first haircut package complete with lock of hair, shampoo and of course baby hair gel. from now on, i will cut it myself :)

gavin and daddy

love my boys!

we spent thanksgiving in northern california with jeramy's family. we had a little family reunion and had such a wonderful time. gavin did so great on the trip. he needed oxygen for the flight but did not need it for the remainder of the trip, with the exception of the last couple days when he spiked a high fever and was sick. here are some pictures from our time in california.

we had such a blast! after we got back from california, it was already time for christmas. i hosted christmas eve dinner, christmas day breakfast and christmas dinner. perhaps i took on too much?? but it was all worth it to be able to spend such a wonderful time surrounded by family.

snuggle time with grandpa

after a crazy couple months surrounding the holidays, jeramy and i were able to go out together for new years. his old boss was throwing a "white party". we had a great time with great friends. thank you to my mom and dad who watched g!

all ready to go

what a fun night!

see...i told you it would be quick :) i hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving and christmas! i look forward to sharing all that God is doing for gavin. it has already been such a wonderful start to the year. (more to come on how well gavin is doing!)

here's to 2012!
