Happy Thanksgiving!!

Today I am thankful for....


I am so blessed to have two healthy, happy, and beautiful kids! I am also thankful for my family, my health, my home, heat in my home, clothes to wear, food to eat, a job to go to, and the list goes on.... These are the things that are easily forgotten in our hustle-and-bustle, materialistic world of today. I hope everyone can take time today (and everyday) to be thankful for all the joys in their lives. Wishing everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Her Newest Obsession

So, Darling Daughter has now discovered what every tween girl discovers at some point.....talking on the phone. When I say she has discovered talking on the phone, I mean she has become completely OBSESSED with it! We're talking full force, all out, hours upon hours, little girl gossip sessions. Seriously, she goes straight to the phone when she gets home, well she attempts to do so phone until homework is finished. With that being said, she runs (literally) in the door, finishes homework with lightening speed, and starts speed dialing. Then comes guessed it! She chokes down her dinner, rushes through a shower, then back to the phone. My 8 year old has suddenly turned into a 13 year old girl right before my eyes! I know she's got to grow up some time, but does she have to do it so fast???

Oh! I almost forgot to add her Christmas request to this post.....a CELL PHONE! I hate to break it to her, but there is NO WAY she's getting a cell phone for Christmas! I told her Santa had a minimum age limit on those!

Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween last night. We did our usually trick-or-treating routine. The kids had a great time and we now have enough candy to last us well into the next century! Here are a few pics from our trick-or-treating adventures....
Check out these two.....If you're not scared, you should be!
What a crew....Cowboy, Witch, and pumpkin.....

Our pumpkin wasn't too into the picture-taking last night

Look out Wyatt Earp!
Oooo-Ooooo Witchy Woman.....
Yes these are spider-web, glitter, fake-eyelashes. My little darling daughter thought she needed these to complete her costume. Yeah....those lasted about 10 minutes before she had enough and ripped them off, and to the garbage they went.....Lesson learned....
