I hope you and your family had the BEST Thanksgiving, and were able to truly be Thankful!!
YOU PUT HER HIGH CHAIR SEAT IN THERE AND TELL HER WE ARE GOING TO GRANDMA'S TO EAT......
Yes, she got in there ALL by herself! The muffler sure was a help, Matt said he watched her, and knew he should have stopped her, but wanted to see if she could do it! And she did! What a kid!

At the end of October Matt was laid-off from his job. When you are the first guy in, you are usually they first guy out. Unfortunatly with the turn in the economy, Capital Steel Products lost a few Big Accounts, and so they had to loose a few good workers.
Matt and I have been on "damage control" the last month, and we really feel like our prayers will be answered. It has been a tough transition, but I know this "change" in our lives is needed. I actually did a post recently after he was laid off, and just left it as a draft. It helped me get my frusturations out, and I am glad I did not post it. Nothing wrong with it, just more personal feelings that I wanted to keep to myself.
We are doing well, still living in Elk Grove. Friends and Family that know of our situation have been so supportive, we are lucky to be where we are. This would be harder if we were still in Fresno so far from family.
Prayers our way are greatly appreciated... we are just looking forward to the next change when Matt gets a job offer and where that will lead us. ~

So last night we tried it again, and it was a success. We still have a ways to go, because Matt sleeps in there till she is asleep, but all is well. Matt came to bed last night I am not sure when, but I checked on Hailey 3 times last night while she was in her big girl bed, and she was out!! And the best part is that she just sat in her room until I went in to get her in the morning!!
YEAH! success!! We are just a few short steps from starting her on the big girl potty! She really is loving all the hugs and high fives she is getting for doing Big Girl things!! YEAH! ~

This is a "bird's eye view" of the front room from the loft-play area. It is really open and fun!
This is my Dining Room and Kitchen, they are next to the front room, and you can see we still have our Halloween table cloth on! I love the kitchen! The stove is gas, and that is new for me, but it cooks SO well!
Our Master Bathroom is Black and White with Light Blue accents.... I have the toilet area decorated, but this is the picture i took... so whatever. We have double sinks in there... LOVE IT
This is Landon's Room, we have yet to decorate it in BOY colors because we still have Hailey in the crib. It is a nice big room with a HUGE closet! YEAH STORAGE!!Now this is the best room in the house! This is the loft area... we call it the playroom! You can see the living room from the banister, and it is to the left of the stairs when you walk up right next to Hailey's room. We LOVE it! It defiantly gets the most use!!
And this is the Kids bathroom upstairs... Hailey loves the ducks in this bathroom, and enjoys her baths as she says "quack quack!" ~ It is nice for Matt and I to graduate from the "ducky bath" only after 5 short years of marriage!
