Bird is the Word!

We had a very quiet, well not very quiet because we do have 3 kids, Thanksgiving. We stayed home this year and enjoyed a dinner of our own. Brandon cooked the bird because I was not about to stick my hand in the turkey's butt and pull out who knows what. We fixed the sides together and had way more food than we needed. It turned out better than I expected because I had kind of been depressed that week because I am used to big holidays with lots of family. It wasn't so bad spending time at home this Thanksgiving.

The Bird! So plump and juicy!

Turkey, rolls, potatoes, corn, gravy, green bean casserole, stuffing, jello, and pie

We are very blessed in deed!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

The most wonderful time of year for me is the annual Yada shopping trip. I love the time that I get to spend with these ladies. They are the best of friends. We laugh ALOT, sometimes cry, and everything in between. It is great to know that you can go months without seeing them and get together and it seems like we were never apart. We shopped our butts off. I think we spend almost 20 hours shopping on our trip. This was a mile stone year for us as well because there was no one breast feeding on the trip. I didn't see any ones boobs this year. Next year won't be the same since Kristi is going to have another baby. We will have to see her boob I'm sure. I was so thankful for the time we had together and can't hardly wait till next year.

After 16 hours of shopping, this is our load. We take it back to the room for show and tell.

The greatest group of ladies!

One of these ladies went home with a hot pair of men's chili pepper thong underwear that I couldn't resist putting in our exchange gift. They were hilarious! What Fun!

What a Weekend!

We had one busy weekend considering that it was our first weekend without soccer and I thought that we would get to relax. We did not relax. Friday we drove to Longmont and went to a Go Fish concert. I thought that it was more fun than Brandon did. They are a Christian kids band. They are better than the Wiggles. The kids really enjoyed it.
On Saturday we got ticket to the CU vs. OSU football game in Boulder. Not exactly my cup of tea but I took one for the family and sucked it up. The temperatures could have been worse. God must have known how miserable I would have been if I was cold. We sat by some good friends and had a fun time. We even took the shuttle bus to the game for an added experience.

At one point I caught Brooklyn cheering for the Buffs. GASP!

Now I need a day off to recover from our days off. It was a great weekend filled with wonderful family time. We need to cherish those times.

Character Counts

I got a call from Zach's teacher yesterday at work saying that they chose him to receive the character counts award for this month at school. He won the reward for being responsible. They said that they can always count on him to be working on what he is suppose to be doing. He is always following instructions and staying on task. Who's kid is this anyway and why doesn't he do this at home! We are very proud of him and I'm glad that he listens to somebody. Way to go Zach!
