Now entering...the HOLIDAYS...

Amarillo has the best Sunrise

When the weather starts turning cool, leaves start falling, and the grass changes gets tracked in my house and covers my floor and DRIVES ME CRAZY, I start to get excited because that means the Holidays are coming and Christmas is soon!! 
It also forces me to reflect on the past year... 
Life has "happened" to my family this past year, both taken and given.  The taken part is sad and hard to get through but as my dad says, my family understands death, and that makes it easier. 
 I will miss my Gigi this year, mostly because Morgan is here and she would love how chubby her cheeks are and how she is smiling and cooing.  Gigi would be so excited to hear that Jordan will soon be a mother and she would have funny things to say about how Jordan will have to really start cleaning and doing laundry more often than monthly. Ha ha. 
This year Kennedy has grown SO MUCH and is a healthy little 2 1/2 year old.  We were also given our little Morgan Kae, who is a chill, laid back, pleasantly plump little sweety. My job is great and Cody seems to be learning more at his daily.  Needless to say us Seatons' are very blessed and extremely Thankful.  We are very close to Cody's family and always get to spend time with them.  I'm lucky...I actual have normal in-laws and love them!! ha ha 
We have been able to visit my parents in Corpus Christi about every 6 months, and my parents get to come to Amarillo almost monthly!
I know there are many more bumps in the road to come and I'm positive 2011 will have a few...but we are a learning family and we seem to get through it as it comes.

This year we are going to my parents for Thanksgiving, so that means we are flying with our almost 3 year old and almost 3 month old...GEEZE! Lets hope those around us are in the Holiday spirit as well and won't mind their chairs being kicked or the occasional cry from the baby.  Lastly here are some pics to keep the parents happy/updated...

I will miss GiGi too. Who is going to make giblet gravy? Not me, I don't like messing with turkey guts! She would be so proud of you both and would LOVE Miss Morgan like crazy. Remember when Kennedy started walking in GiGi's living room?
You are great parents and surely have set a good example for your little sister. By the way, I am glad you have fantastic in laws; I love them too.

Yay!! I'm so glad I found your blog! Your little girlies are adorable.
It is nice to reflect on the year as it comes to a close. Life is always interesting, and it seems I can never predict what's around the corner. Your sweetie, Morgan, was a wonderful blessing this year, I am sure. :) Here's to a new year and all the crazy that comes with it!
