Black Friday Fun!!

Every year we go shopping with all the crazies!!  We love it and enjoy the thrill of the chase!  We of course had to stop for breakfast (the main reason most of them come!)  Then onto some more stores!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year the entire family was together!  We enjoyed a wonderful dinner complete with our family tradition of having sauerkraut (from the Gabrielsen side) and Grandma Ruby's vegetable casserole!  We ate and ate and played lots of games, then onto the important things... plan Black Friday!!!

Hanging out!

Getting our Black Friday on!!!

Breaking Dawn part II

Sadly the last movie from the Twilight saga came out, we of course had a girls night out with only 50 SAHM's!  We ate dinner at the Brick Oven and then headed to Thanksgiving pt to enjoy the show!  I thought it was the best one yet and am sad to see the saga end!  Thank goodness for The Hunger Games!
Dinner with my friends!

The group of wild women!

With our dates!

Great movie with great friends!!!

Snow already!

We got hit with a HUGE snowstorm, the kids were in heaven!  We have a huge hill on the side of our yard which makes for the perfect sledding!

Preston is so helpful he shoveled the yard!  I made cookies inside with Ruby while the kids played for hours!


Silly girl!

We got dumped on!  The kids new favorite place to play is at the park they say the slides are waaaaay better covered in snow!

Sweet Ruby is 4 months!

So sad to watch my last baby grow up!  She is such a sweet baby and smiles at EVERYONE!  I constantly have people stopping me in public places and say 'your baby is smiling at me!' she is so friendly and sweet!

 Sweet pretty baby!

We had to go to 3 ultrasound appointments to make sure her hip socket was developed enough, thankfully it was!

At the Dr's office for her checkup!
She weighed 13 pounds at 4 months!
Poor little legs got shots!

She went 7 days without going poop, don't worry she made up for it!

Much to her Dad's dismay she started sucking her baby thumb!

We just love our little girl!!!
