Thanksgiving this year was a week full of fun and craziness (wait thats every week with the Thomson clan...) anyway, we spent the week down in Las Cruces and Alamogordo. All my sibling were in town so it was so fun having everyone around.
I did work some over the week doing photo shoots, but I enjoy it so much it wasn't really "work" My photo business is going great and I am always busy with shoots and editing! I love it!
Unfortunately we had to cancel (postpone) our trip to Jamaica. We didn't know Abs needed a passport and we would have had to pay a ton of money to get one on such late notice. And after looking at all the options we decided to save out money and plan another trip at a better time.
Cody has applied for four different jobs so we are just waiting to see if God wants us to move. But for the time being we are very happy and content in little Cortez. This place has really grown on us and has become out home.
Abigail is 11 months old tomorrow!! Almost the 1 year mark! I can't believe how fast 11 months have gone!! She has just started taking steps this past week and is the most precious bundle of joy and energy a parent could ask for. With six teeth finally in, we are back to 12 hours at night, and two really good nap!! YAY! She is eating almost everything and loves to eat, however her new favorite thing to do is open the dog cage and let Ringo out to play....
She also loves to sing and dance to just about anything, crawl in the dishwasher and take all the silverware out, howl like a coyote, drink water like a big girl, and her Grams taught her how to play peek-a-boo. SO fun!!
I have so many pictures... of course over the last couple of weeks, so here are just a few!
Also check out our new photos at www.riverbendphotos.blogspot.com
tons of love and kisses from her Grams.
She got the tour of GGma's backyard (aka... disney land!!)
Her first trip to the zoo with Grammy Sherry.
Her new favorite hang out place. She hears me open it from the other side of the house!Abs went on her first tractor ride with Caption Wally! She loved it, and a little while later she fell sound asleep in the pick-up checking on the lettuce with Mr. Hill.
Have a blessed day!!

I have this tradition, every year I pick an NFL team to cheer for. And it changes every year, so last year was Arizona (who just so happened to make it to the superbowl) and this year... well I guess you can say I have jumped back on the Cowboys band-wagon. My family is hard core Dallas fans, and being the sweet kind daughter that I am, I always cheering for ANY team BUT dallas, just to make things fun..... but this year Abs and I are rooting for the Cowboys! So her gramps already got her suited up in spirit of the "BOYS"!

We had a yummy birthday dinner tonight at the Dolores Brewery.... so yum! And of course we had to take some pictures of Abs in the leaves that we had been raking up in the front yard. Also the precious pumpkin hat is from Nana K. So fun!

Code's Elk hunt starts next weekend, so he has been out scouting and gearing up! After the XC meet in the morning we headed outside of Mancos to do a little hiking in the fall colors - and (which is more the main purpose for going) to let our crazy dogs RUN!! So Romeo (Mag's lab) and Ringo our crazy german shorthair pointer... ran their doggie butts off. which made for a wonderful weekend!
The whole family, although Johnny Ringo is not wanting to cooperate...
Sunday morning I got up and got a 12 mile run in, Cody went scouting, and Mags and I took our dogs and baby out again for a hike near McPhee. The country side is beautiful even though it looks like a totally different place with all the green gone. Two weeks till Regionals in Apsen, and they got 12 inches of snow a week ago! so I will keep you updated!!
We are so excited that Richard and Melissa brought a precious little girl Addison Wynne into the world!! Abs has a baby cousin! We can't wait to see photos!!.... too bad we don't live closer cause obvious we do not have a shortage of photos around our house=0)

Things here in C-town are going great! This is my all time favorite time of year, the aspens are freakin AMAZING! Everything is bright yellow, orange, and gold! So beautiful! We have been so busy, with working, traveling, hunting, highschool XC, marathon training, starting my own business (and taking tons of photos), trying not to kill our VERY energetic puppy, oh and raising our precious little daughter.
Cody shot a good size doe last week, so he has been working hard processing all the meat....
I should have gotten a picture of last night... he had the whole hind quarters in our kitchen. He is such a great provider!! He is also headed to farmington today for a job interview. We are both not wanting to move, but if he gets the job it might be a possibility.
I have been staying so busy, teaching, coaching, and opening my own business!! I am actually in the process of getting a tax ID number and a small business license! I will be my own business owner. pretty cool. Also in the next few months, I will be designing (or should i say trying to design my own webpage) right now it is still the blogspot, but check out the latest senior pictures.... www.riverbendphotos.blogspot.com
Teaching is going great, I teach yoga, beginning fitness, and swimming, to very energetic highschoolers..... it really is alot of fun! I also love coaching, but it is definitely a family affair, Cody and Abs follow the Panther XC team everywhere... abs even made the team pictures! Our kids are running great, the girls got 2nd at the Pagosa Springs Invite!! And we are setting out sites on State in Fort Collins at the end of Oct. Those kids are so precious! I love them, and so does Abigail.
And Abs is only a few days away from being 9months old! yes, I can't beleive it, my little bug is 9 months! And waving, clapping, standing on her own,( for a few seconds) and crawling almost as fast as I can run.=0)
Last weekend we had a blast in Santa Fe for my dear friend Elizabeth Jaramillo's wedding!! We staying in La Fonda right on the Plaza, and the wedding was BEAUTIFUL!! It was so fun to be with my old college running buddies! And Liz was an absolutely stunning bride! We also got to spend some time with Precious Nana K, Uncle Steve, and Grammy Sherry up in Los Alamos!! They were so amazing and baby sat alot of the weekend so Cody and I could enjoy the festivities!
These last three are super bad quality, cause they were taken with my new video camera!! Cody and I had our 2 year anniversary Sept 1st, and I got a new video camera... what a good man! Anyway these were taken at Abs' first alpine lake, Hope Lake, it was a beautiful hike! Ringo was in heaven, and we barely escaped the rain!
Love you all!!
