The VERY first memory I have in this house is the night Jon proposed to me! It was such a SHOCK to say the least, but one of the best nights ever! Jon had come home from a hunting trip and told me that he was able to pick up the keys to HIS new house that day and asked me to come over with him. I was starved for dinner, so i kept asking if we could go eat, but he was SO persistent on taking me to the house first. Honestly, i thought the house was foul on the inside because it had purple and peach wallpaper and carpet, FOUL! But thankfully Jon let me remodel the entire inside of the house, more on that later. So we go to the house and he had roses on the counter for me, i remember saying "those are pretty" and just walked down the hall to potty! I am sure he thought "geez".... When i came back he was in the living room and said lots of sweet things that swept me off my feet and then got down on one knee and pulled out a box that had the most perfect ring ever in it! It was SO perfect!
I always thought i'd be all dolled up the night i got engaged, ha! DBU tshirt and ponytail it was!
But SO happy!
This is the day we brought Cade home from the hospital! Another INCREDIBLE memory that we will always remember! My mom had come over early and decorated the yard so cute! This was Thanksgiving day last year and truly a thankful day for us!
Ahhhh, he was SOOOO tiny! Sure loved that newborn stage, but life with a happy 8 1/2 month old couldn't get any better! Oh the JOY of being parents, who would have thought this day that we could have loved him anymore than we did right then!
First Christmas with Cade Michael!
AHHHHH, love love love that little guy!
Jon reading Cade the story of baby Jesus for the fist time!
(Excuse the boy parts, we aren't too modest around here, ha!) Bath time is ALWAYS a fun time here! It's really Jon and Cade time, but sometimes I'll sneak in and wash Cade's hair and see how much fun he and daddy are having, and then I always get him out and dress him in jammies!
Pretty sure Cade wants to be just like "da, da, da"
When he was small enough to fit in this bouncer, he loved sitting on the island and helping me cook! He thought it was SO fun to get to hold the spoon for me! It's the small things ya know!! :)
Sleeping with mommy and daddy!
And sometimes in his bed too!
And when he was REALLY tiny, he'd sleep in the bassinet!
Seems just like yesterday....
One time, Jon was out on a hunting trip and I called the painters in to rip down the huge on the wall mirror that came with the house and texture and paint...i bought these great mirrors and lights and had it all ready when Jon got home. He wasn't too happy with me, but quickly got over it because it looked super fab! I'm "supposed" to not do anymore home projects when he's out of town! ha!! ;)
We celebrated several birthdays here, this is one of Jon's...I had given him that hat and a baby one for Cade......
Our first Christmas married!
Gotta love Bunco nights! This was actually our first bunco party, and we are still going strong! We got SO wild and crazy this night screaming and rolling dice, that our throats were all sore the next day! These girls are SO much fun! :)
4th of July parties!
Possey Christmas parties....
This was one of those memories you won't ever forget! I came home from Cabo and found out Jon and I were going to have a boy! I still don't know how i left the country with Jon knowing what our baby was and me not, but sure enough it was possible! I was just telling Jon tonight, IF we have another baby, i would SO find out that way again! I loved letting him surprise me and hey it kept him super busy while his pregnant wife was very far away! I really have the best hubs ever! Do you see all that decor!!!
18 weeks here...
This was the announcement of our first pregnancy, but I just had to post it. Some of these facial expressions are PRICELESS!
So, i am crazy and thought i was ENORMOUS in these 2 pics....oh, i had NO idea what was to come!
I took a belly pic each week in the front yard, sometimes we were out there for a while for "retakes" you know pregger friends, sometimes you just look "fat"....
Our first home will always be SO special to us! We are sad to leave all the memories, but SO excited to see what's to come in our new place! I will probably be MIA on the blogging for about a week. But will pick back up once we get settled in. Off to kiss my boys night night one last time in this casa!!
