Our Christmas 2014

Charlie had so much fun this Christmas season despite my half ass'd Christmas spirit.   I had all this fun stuff planned for us to do.  We were going to head downtown and see the lights, make a gingerbread house and salt-dough Christmas ornaments.  We were going to get our picture taken with Santa, make our own advent calendar and hang our stockings.  It was going to be the most wonderful time of the year!  Unfortunately, pregnancy number two was kicking my butt and I just couldn't shake my nausea to get anything done.  We never even decorated our Christmas tree, honestly I was just happy the damn thing got put up and the lights worked.  A couple days before Christmas, Charlie started telling everyone "Santa Claus is coming and he's bringing preseeeeents!"  I looked at my mom and was like oh shit, I should probably go shopping.  Which we did just in the nick of time the day before Christmas eve and we even made some festive cookies that day too!  My slacking didn't phase Charlie one bit, he still had so much fun!  What a magical time of year especially when you get to experience it through toddlers eyes!


Hope everyone enjoyed spending time off with family and friends!  Happy New Years Eve week!

What a Merry Christmas it is!

So happy to say another baby Reeder is on the way!

Along with my excitement is an overwhelming amount of nausea, drowsiness and just plain feeling shitty 24/7 for the past 3 weeks.  Which is my excuse for my quietness on social media.  I can barely pull myself together to make it to work at a decent hour let alone update my blog and Instagram :( 
I know they say no two pregnancies are alike but since this pregnancy is completely different than my last I feel like it might me a girl this time.  Both Ben and I really don't care either way as long as they are healthy but  I think our ideal family would be another boy and then our next one (and last) would be a girl.  I really like the idea of 2 boys and a little girl and I think it would be nice for Charlie to have a little buddy :)  The fun part is we don't get to choose and we aren't finding out the sex because we really don't care so until then we will just enjoy these next 7 months and keep hoping for a happy healthy little baby!  So excited!!

We also have more exciting news coming in the next few weeks so stay tuned!

Thanksgiving 2014

Hope everyone had a happy long Thanksgiving weekend!  Ours started off with bad news that my grandma had to go to the hospital and so Thanksgiving with my side of the family was cancelled.  Since we always celebrate with Ben's family the day after we spent our Thanksgiving taking turns going to the gym,  watching movies and vegging out all day with the dude.  By the end of the day we were pretty stir crazy so we decided to head out to Target to grab a few things, only to find a line out the door a mile long with crazy Black Friday campers.  The whole day was a bust!
Friday with Ben's family did not disappoint!  We deep fried our turkey like we do every year but since we don't want all that hot oil to go to waste we really go all out!  Two turkeys, two chickens, and tons of potato and sweet potato fries were fried up!  I totally dropped the ball as far as pictures go, I didn't take one. Boo 
The rest of our holiday weekend was pretty low key.  I got to spend some time with my BFF who came in from Nashville with her husband and visited my grandma in the hospital. In between the crummy weather we also got to take a couple snapshots for our Christmas cards! sneak peak...
I am so thankful for my friends and family especially my gram, the backbone of our family and my mom for taking such good care of her.  I definitely counted my blessing this year, we sure do have a lot to be thankful for.
