We put up decorations yesterday! Here is a little glimpse at our cozy Christmas house!

The outside looks great thanks to Nick and his lighting skills!

This is a wreath that I made--notice the S in the middle. It stands for Sadler...yes, I am still amazed that this is my new last name.

Our stocking--from left to right--Jen, Nick, Elway and Joey.

Finally...OUR TREE! Our house just feels so cozy and happy! I love this time of year and all the happiness that comes with it. Enjoy the season and all the splendor that comes with it!

Freaking Life

It is so amazing to me how we can be plodding along one minute trying to just have a little fun, and the next minute be stopped in our tracks by the most unexpected news. My brother-in-law, Eric, has been diagnosed with lymphoma. He's been sick forever, and this is what they have found out. Holly and Eric have been back and forth from the hospital for tests and biopsies, etc. It looks like he will begin treatment next week. We are praying lots and talking with everyone everyday. My body is in big sister mode, and I want to be there with them so bad! It isn't as if there is anything I can actually do except take care of people. It's all I am really good at anyway.

Missing them! Missing home! Can't wait to see everyone, and I hope to see them all soon.

Going home was awesome, but it made being here all the more difficult. When, oh when, is this going to get easier?

Visit from Dad

Nick's dad and step-mom (Ed and Rochelle) came and visited us last weekend. We had a great time with them. The weekend was very laid back and comfortable. We played games, went to the Stockyards, out to dinner, went shopping. It was so nice to spend time with them. The following are some pictures from the trip.

Nick and me out at dinner at Joe T's. It is THE place to go when you are here. The atmosphere is amazing! We sat out on the patio next to a big fountain under some pretty amazing trees. I really enjoyed it--Nick never took me there before this. He talked about it all the time, but with Dad and Rochelle here, he seemed like the perfect opportunity.

This is Ed and Rochelle at Joe T's. They both had a few drinks in them Joe T's is the most famous for their margaritas.

We took the picture of the boys with their dad at the Stockyards. We came to realize that with all the pictures we have plastered all over this house, we don't have one of Dad anywhere. So, it became really important that we get a good picture of them while he was here. I love this picture. It is perfect.

Just a silly Nick and Jen picture. We took it at the Stockyards. Nick says that I am too good at taking these pictures of us, but you can see my outstretched arm in his sunglasses. Pretty funny!

Finally, if I had a cow, this is what she would look like. Cute and happy and all dolled up. My sister, Stef, says I should call her Tootsie. It is a perfect name.

Lost Babies

What a day today was! I got up at eight to find a hole in the fence, the neighbors gate open, and my dogs gone. In panic mode, I called Nick and made him come home to help me look. We scoured the neighborhood, visited Animal Control, and went came home. I worked a half day, so I had to get ready for work. There was nothing we could do.

Right before I had to leave, I got a call from a lady who had Joey--but no Elway. So, I ran to pick her up then headed to sub. I still had heard nothing by the time I came home, so Joey and I went for a walk around our whole neighborhood. We didn't find Elway on our walk, and I felt pretty frustrated.

Right before Nick came home from work I got a phone call from a family who said that they thought they might have my dog. He was hiding from the world behind an AC unit, and he wouldn't come out to play. I went and picked him up, and he was so happy to see his mom!

Needless to say, I am exhausted! We took pictures of our rotted fence, and now will come the battle to get a new one from our landlord. This could get interesting.
