It's a wonderful life.

Last night my sister, Jessica, came over and we watched It's a Wonderful Life. It was my first time seeing it and I just LOVED it! It was such a heart warming movie that makes me thankful for all that I have been blessed with.

Annie's 1st Christmas was a success!! So much fun and so exhausting for her. She slept 10 hrs last night and is going on a 3 hour nap!

A few shots from Annie's first Christmas!
Annie and her Uncle Will.

Mimi and Papa with the grand kids...Ages 3 months to 5 years. Made it exciting to get everyone to cooperate!

Annie will be 3 months on Monday!! I can't beleive it! She smiles and loves to stand up. Such a strong little baby :)

It's December!

I am so pumped for this Christmas season :) I've been listening to Holiday Traditions on XM Radio for over a week now and I'm loving it!

Our Christmas tree is up and now I am on the look out for a tree skirt and Annie a stocking. I'm undecided if I am going to make it or buy it. I also want to make some garland to go up around the house but not sure what kind I want. Any ideas?

I'll be looking and will post some pictures of the casa! I love our tree :) And I love my family :)

Happy December to all!!

I'm also gearing up for our Christmas pictures to go in our Christmas cards! I've got some ideas just not sure they are going to pan out. Let's just say I got Annie's and my outfit at the Ally Cat (vintage/antique store).

A prayer for this Thanksgiving.

To Family and Friends:

Lord Jesus Christ,
I praise and thank you for my parents and
my brothers and sisters,
whom you have given me to cherish.
Surround them with your tender, loving care,
teach them to love and serve one another
in true affection,
and to look to you in all their needs.
I place them all in your care,
knowing that your love for them is greater
than my own.
Keep us close to one another in this life
and conduct us at the last to our true
and heavenly home.
Blessed be God for ever. Amen.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!! This Hager family loves you :)

bumbo time

Oh I am so excited that my big sister, Clair, brought over her bumbo for us to borrow. Annie has been holding her head up more and she gets tired of laying down so last night we tried out the bumbo seat.

She did great when I first put her in it and then she slowly started to slump down. Which is about the time I got my camera.

Then she just got mad.

I think she likes it but she was a wee bit sleepy so last night it just made her mad.

8 weeks

Ms. Annie Clayton is 8 weeks old. She is growing fast. Every day she becomes more alert, smiles a little more, and keeps getting cuter and cuter (which I didn't think was possible).

We go for her two month appointment next week and I can't wait to see how much she has grown.

friday night.

Ryan and I went out on a date Friday night. We had a really good time enjoying each others company, adult beverages, and live music. We went to The Iron Horse to hear one of my favorite bands, Mike McClure.

just a few things

1. I love the way my baby sleeps.

2. I love the way she is so bright eyed when she's awake. Full of expressions!

3. I love this song.

Song: This Little Light of Mine

All Souls Day

Here is are a couple of prayers I am saying today for all the people I have lost in my life:
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Merciful Father, hear our prayers and console us. As we renew our faith in Your Son, whom You raised from the dead, strengthen our hope that all our departed brothers and sisters will share in His resurrection, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
May everyone have a wonderful day.
The Hagers

6 weeks

Ms. Annie is 6 weeks today and I am now approved to run, spin, and ... well other things that aren't appropriate to talk about. :)

Annie is becoming more and more alert everyday. I have to go back to work tomorrow and I've tried not to fret on how bad I am going to miss her. My mom is keeping her and I couldn't be more excited. Some things aren't easy in life and leaving Annie to go back to work is one of those things. It helps that I know there is no other option. I have to work and that's that. I love my job and the people I work with and for so I couldn't be more blessed.

On a positive note, I GET TO START RUNNING AGAIN! I'm ready to lace these babies up and hit the road.

Annie at 6 weeks

Taos, New Mexico

We went our first family trip this past weekend and it was great! Annie did so good. We split the drive up into two days for the trip there and drove the entire 10+ hours all day yesterday. We went to Taos, NM. Fall is my favorite season and the fall in Taos is gorgeous!! The trees are so pretty with the perfect combination of fall colors. We went on walk and hikes and Annie just loved her Ergo. It put her right to sleep :)

Here are a few pictures of our trip.

We went to the Taos Ski Valley to hike on Sunday and we did the Wheeler Peek trail. We didn't do the entire trail due to Annie and ice/snow but we did do about half.

Annie in her warm bear one piece (had to take off half way through because it got too hot) she looked so sweet :)

The trip was great and I can't wait to go on another little family trip. I hope you enjoyed and now I'm off to cook some dinner!

Well our little family had a photo shoot a week or so ago and I am so excited to share some shots. We had the very talented Meegan Weaver come and take some pictures of our family and little Annie.

There are too many to share but here are a few that I LOVE!
