We Have A Winner!!

Congratulations to Jennifer!!  You are the winner of my first give-away!!  According to the random number generator, #38 was the lucky winner and #38 was you!  I will send you an email and can't wait to send you some new ornaments for your tree or maybe for your mantle, since it is the area you would like help with :) I will be sure to take a picture of what I find, so everyone else can see too!

Now, as promised, I said I would share some pictures from our trip to Chicago!  We had the best time, it was so wonderful to get away and to be with friends.  We missed Ava Page like crazy, but we knew she was having a great time with her Texie and we truly enjoyed having a few days "off" just to be together. I have lots of great pictures and I will share them this week, but for now, here is one of my favorites!!

So fun to dress up and go out for the night :) We haven't been doing too much of that lately!

The only drawback to our weekend was that I was terribly sick with a horrible cold.  And now Travis is sick too.  Yeah, not fun.  It was good that we were away from Ava afterall, I definitely couldn't have taken care of her and I didn't want to be around her while I was coughing and sneezing so much.  I am slightly better, but I think a trip to the Minute Clinic is in store for me tomorrow and probably for Trav if he doesn't feel better soon.  Oh well, it was still fun and we were so thankful for the time away.

Trav's Mom leaves tomorrow so it's back to reality for us, but we are so thankful to have had her here for a few days.  She was a huge help to us and of course we love seeing her.  We are blessed to have so many sweet family members to help us and to love on Miss Ava.
I know she was not lacking for attention or love while we were gone!!

Hope your weekend was great and your Monday too!  I will get some Chicago pics up as soon as I have a few spare minutes.  Thanks for playing in my giveaway, I have some future posts planned to help as many of you out as I can!  I just might have to have a "how-to" post every week til Christmas, just so I can get through them.  I love that kind of thing though, so it will be fun for all of us :) And, I think I just might be able to throw a few more give-aways in there, so stay tuned!

I have just officially started following your blog! I have read for a while (and am the one that asked about Trav's age in your Q&A post) but just started my own blog about my journey trough infertility and IVF.

So glad you and your hubby had an awesome time away!!
