RIP Gidgey

Our family dog, Gidget, passed away a couple weeks ago.
She had gotten sick and wasn't eating anything for about a week, so my mom took her to the vet and the news was not good. 
She was basically suffering so bad that my mom had to put her down then and there.
Didn't get to say good-bye to the little pup.
I sure did love this dog.
My mom and I got her from the pound when she was just 6 months old.
We had gone in looking for a female dog and my mom had said that she wanted to name the dog Gidget.
Weirdly enough we see her and think she is the cutest thing ever.  
We look at the info and her name just so happens to be Gidget...kid you not! It was freaky.  
We didn't want to get our hopes up though because there were about 7 people ahead of us on the list to take her home.
By some miracle they called us and we got to take her home!
She was there through a lot of hard times and I know she was meant to come into our family at the time that she did...
She lived a short 7 years, but will always be in our hearts.
Love and miss you Gidgey girl.

This was the last pic I took with my little girl..lookin hot and prego :)

Gobble gobble.

Thanksgiving this year was spent with the Hadfield family.  
We stayed at Branson's grandparents' cabin in Beaver, Utah along with about 25 other family members.  
Beaver isn't the most happenin' place, but that's why we love it!
Not only is it beautiful up in the mountains, but there is little to no cell service so it's so fun to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days.
We all just hang out, talk, eat, play games, go shooting, EAT, snowmobile (when there is snow) and enjoy each other.
Plus, Parker was a hit this year!
He was smothered with SO much love!
Let's just say the next two days after Thanksgiving, if he wasn't being held, he was NOT a happy boy.

 Our first Thanksgiving as a little family!

One Month.
October 31st-December 1st

  • Can roll over from his stomach to his back on both sides. He's ambidextrous!
  • When he falls asleep for feedings it is impossible to wake the little guy up! #milkcoma 
  • Wipes the milk off his face after feeding. It is the funniest thing!
  • Dreams like crazy and smiles in his sleep.
  • Has ticklish feet-got that from his mommy.
  • Squeaks in his sleep.
  • Always crosses his arms across his chest and holds one hand in the other.
  • Has a new cry when he has's so sad!
  • Grunts a TON!
  • Not the biggest fan of binki's but will take one when needed.
  • He will stretch with both arms up in the air and yawn. He cracks us up!
  • Doesn't cry when getting his diaper changed anymore.
  • Gets his arms out from a double swaddle. He looked like the hulk trying to tear the blanket apart. There is no keeping them in!
  • Falls asleep so fast when dad lifts him up and down. It's a great workout for Branson, too! ;)
