"Thanksgiving is my favorite costumes, no suitcases, no gifts, no basket grass and half-eaten marshmallow eggs, no flags to fly, no pageants to prepare. Just friends and family bowed together before Heavenly Father." - Katherine Wirthlin Cannon

Tangled and Thai!

During Thanksgiving break we decided to take the kids to Tangled!!  It was so adorable and the kids loved it too!!!  Then we all headed out for Thai food!

 Daddy and Violet!

 Lovin' our shades!

The girls playing around after the show!


 At the Thai restaurant!

Do I have a raccoon problem?

The other day I was making dinner for a lady in my ward and made a cake for dessert.  While I went upstairs to get ready a raccoon must have come into the kitchen and eaten part of the cake, because here is what I found!!!
 Then I realized these two had mouthful's of cake!!!  The 'real' raccoons!!!

What I am most grateful for...

I have so many things to be grateful for this holiday, so I wanted to take the time and write down a few of them.
1.  My family including my wonderful children who bring me my highest high's and lowest low's.  My husband who is the best father and even better partner.  My wonderful parents who have helped me so much this year as well as my siblings.  Also my in-laws who are so loving and always willing to help!
2.  The gospel without it I would be lost and incomplete.  It has helped me develop a relationship with my Savior which has helped me so much especially this year.
3.  This wonderful Country we live in and all of those who have sacrificed so much to help keep it free.
4.  Change, we moved a year ago yesterday and have gone through so much change.  I have really come to understand myself better with each move we have made!  I am a FIRM believer that each couple needs to move away from home for a few years and figure out who they really are and what they are made of!
5.  All of the wonderful memories we have made this last year!  My life is truly filled with joy and happiness!  I look forward to what this next year brings!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! 

Little Helpers!

After telling you all the naughty things Pressy-boy has been doing, I am happy to report that this was the scene in our house yesterday morning!  Preston and Violet had both colored on the wall with pencil.  I was un-happy to say the least!  Imagine my surprise when the two of them both grabbed the Clorox wipes and started trying to wipe away their naughtiness!!  Sometimes my kids do the sweetest things and just melt my heart!

Pressy-Boy Strikes again!

We knew his streak of not breaking things could not last forever!  The other night Pressy was swinging a chair around and hit the TV!  He cracked the screen and ruined it!!  For your information in Preston VS the TV: Preston :2  The TV:0.  We are not sure what we are going to do (when we will actually replace it) but whatever we decide Preston must stay FAR AWAY!!!
That's all we get when the TV is on!

Preston's handy-work!!  He is available for hire if you are thinking of replacing your TV!

A fall and stiches

Violet has learned to push the kitchen chairs all over the house so she can 'get into' everything!!!  The other day she pushed her chair up to the counter to get into the leftovers from breakfast and fell off.  She started screaming and bleeding everywhere.  I immediately rushed her down to her doctors office and they decided to do stitches.  She had just eaten so we had to wait until later that day before they would sedate her and do the stitches.  I took her back 5 hours later and they gave her a shot and put two little stitches into her lip.  Poor little thing!
You can see where the tooth went in and out!

As you can tell she did NOT want to pose for photos!

The 80's are baaaaaack!

My sister-in-law hosted a totally awesome 80's party.  There was good food, good friends and fun games but, the best part was totally the outfits!!!  Here are some pictures of the fun...
That hair did indeed take a long time, it also took a longer time to wash and comb it out!


Jon's costume (he found all of this in his closet!)

Playing games!

That's all folks!

More Storage!

Sorry my poor blog has been neglected!  According to Blogger I have used the allotted amount of storage for my blog so on Halloween I bought more... here we are over 2 weeks later and according to blogger I don't have more storage!  I have emailed them and done all of the troubleshooting things they asked me too but still it does not work!!!  I am beyond annoyed!  So sorry I have not updated, hopefully this issue will get resolved soon!!!  Until then I will try to calm down and be patient!
