GoBbLE gObBle GObbLE!

We spent Thanksgiving this year with Todd's Family,
we were fortunate to have all but one of his family there.
Todd's sister DeAnna and her family live in South Dakota
and won't be able to come til Christmas!
WE can't wait to see them!
Dinner was wonderful and extremely OVER filling!
I think the best part of the day was
listening to Todds brothers and sisters
reminiss about thier YOUNGER days! I am finding
out the Todd did things and says he NEVER did!
Janet and I go shopping on Black Friday so after dinner
we mapped out our plan of attack!
Let's just say that we did get Todd's mom her
Christmas present and Janet did come out alive!
She only got a bruise or two!
We usually go with out the intent of HAVING to
have something but this year we found ONE Deal
we had to have to Mom Wilding!
We hope that Everyone had a
wonderful Thanksgiving!

Isn't she BeAuTiFul!

I finaly remembered to take Samanthas Picture today!
Doesn't she look beautifull in her new dress?!
Thanks Aunt June, We love you!

Time for a change....

When I decide to do something I tend to have to do it right now, especially when it's something out of my comfort zone. when we built our house Samantha wanted her room purple so we did! But Saturday I decided that purple just wasn't right! So we made a change and boy did we change! Its not completely done yet but here are some previews! We still need to add some pink stuff and change her curtains!

Being Thankful!

Sometimes it is soo hard to be thankful! I know you all understand this! Somedays you have a child who tests you to you just simply blow up, or you have a child who just can't seem to listen at all that day! Sometimes you have a husband who doesn't seem to be on the same page as you (ok most of the time), sometimes you, your husband or your children just simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed for no reason at all! Sometimes you have a child who just needs you, and can't leave your side especially when you have ton of house work to do! Sometimes you have a child who is whiney but there doesn't seem to be any real reason to be and it's driving you CrAZy! Sometimes you feel like your kids are raised in a BARN but you live in a house! Sometimes ( ok 90% of the time) you feel like you are the only one who know how to do the dishes or sweep the floor or clean a bathroom!! But at the end of the day it just doesn't seem to matter! When you sit down and you hold your children or kiss your husband you realize that those things aren't important and that you are so greatfull to have a family and friends! I am sooo THANKFUL for ALL of my Family, they have been a great support through all the good and the bad for the last 6 months! Where would we be without each other? Where would we be if we didn't know that Families Are Forever?!

Bows Bows Bows!

Ok so I am PROUD to admit that I am just like my mom!
She was always looking for new Ideas and things to sell!!
I have a new project I am working on and I need a business name!
The one I wanted was "It's a Girl Thing" and it has been taken!
So if anyone has any ideas I would be excited to hear them!
Plus if you have any suggestions on bows that I should make that would be great!
Here are a few of what I have already made!
So bring on the suggestions!

I LOVE Halloween, but this year was a little crazy! Usually you dressup only the one day right...well our kids have a 4 day school week which means they have fridays off! Sooo we had to dress up on thursday for school and then again on friday for Halloween! That is just too much work!
