A year ago today

Our little Samson Bruce turned ONE YEAR OLD today!! I can't believe that it's been a whole year since we were blessed with this little guy in our family and into our lives. He has been such a wonderful addition to our family. We love him so much, and we couldn't ask for a better son. He just grows up too fast!! :) As I was looking though our old pictures to put some onto the blog, I was amazed at how tiny Sam was. I still find myself looking at him sometimes and thinking, "I can't believe that came out of me!" Sorry the pictures are so blurry, they were taken with our old, crappy camera. These were some of the best ones I could find. We are having a birthday party for Samson on Friday. I will take lots of pictures and post them this weekend! Until then, enjoy these really fuzzy ones of baby Sam!

My husband ROCKS!!!

I have the best husband IN THE WORLD!!! I have been sick all weekend. (Thanks to some stupid people that I work with that brought germs to work. Another story.) Anyways, we had planned to do some good cleaning yesterday and we decided to rearrange our living room. When I woke up yesterday morning, I felt like CRAP!! Scott was awesome. He let me sleep in, he got up, took care of Samson, and started cleaning and moving things around. I spent the whole day either in bed, or resting on the couch while my dear, sweet, amazing husband took care of ALL the cleaning and rearranging of the living room. How crazy awesome is he?!?! I kept telling him that I felt bad that I wasn't helping much, but he just made me rest and take care of myself. In addition to the cleaning, rearranging, and taking care of Sam, he also found time to take care of me. He'd make me soup, get me medicine, and just let me rest. This morning, I stayed home from church, while Scott went and took Sam with him so I could, once again, just rest and get better. Thank goodness, I feel much better today. My temperature is normal today, compared to the 101.8 one I had last night. I HATE BEING SICK!!! It makes it a little better when I have an awesome husband to take care of me, though. Thanks for all you do, babe!! I LOVE YOU!!!

Christmas 2008

Yes, I do realize that we are now almost half way through February, and I'm only now doing a post about Christmas. I'm such a slacker!! Actually, I tried to work on a Christmas post last week, and it was taking WAY TOO LONG to load the pictures. Well, yesterday I was playing around on my facebook account, and decided to try to create a photo album on my page. It was SO MUCH FASTER than waiting for them to load on the blog. So, I just decided that if you want to see some pictures of the Huish Family Christmas 2008, feel free to look at my facebook. I plan on putting more pictures on my facebook as well. I will still update my blog with pictures, I just didn't feel like waiting forever for the Christmas ones to load. So, until next time...
