Weekend and Winner

And the winner of the autographed copy of Double Shot is...

Stephanie! Send me an email at erynnmangum@gmail.com and I'll get that out to you ASAP! :)

I've got one more Holly Jolly Giveaway for this coming Friday!

We had a very laid back weekend. I even got a little bit bored at one point (can't remember the last time that happened) and this was the result:

Yep. Bangs. We'll see how long they stay. ;) We spent Saturday around the house soaking up the last few weeks of college football.  Nathan was overjoyed because he got to watch a lot of the Alabama/Georgia game from his favorite place on earth - right between me and Jon:

Afterward, our friends Shannon and Eric had a Christmas party. So fun, but I will say that parties are not what they used to be before we had Nathan.

Not that I would change our crazy son, but I always feel like we need to send an apology gift to our poor hostess when we leave. ;)

Yesterday, we had another day at home after church and then "Unca Bynant" came over and stayed until after dinner. Nathan might have been a little over the moon about this. He loves going to see the extended family at Gammy and Pops' house, but whenever anyone comes to our house, it's like the angels have started singing. Poor Bryant got dragged all over our house looking at every single thing that could possibly belong to Nathan.

I am so proud of my mom because she ran in the Las Vegas marathon yesterday and did great, despite getting texts like this from Nathan:

We try to be encouraging. She did awesome and I'm so proud of her!

We went to Lunch Bunch this morning, ran by the grocery store, I put Nathan down for a nap and got dinner going and I'm finally sitting down for the first time all day. Life is crazy but we are more than blessed.

Please know that even if I don't mention it often, I am still praying for all of you who are waiting for something along with us, especially those of you waiting for a husband or child. There is such an emphasis on love and families and children around Christmastime and I know it can be an extremely difficult, lonely time. I don't want to pop the spiritual band-aid on there so I just want to say I know it hurts and I'm praying for you.

Love to you all!
