I have no pictures right now but I just wanted to wish everyone a great Thanksgiving. I have so much to be greatful for. My kids, my husband, my family, my husbands family and all the great friends I have met along the way. It is hard being away from family, exspecially during the holidays but we are lucky enough to have my sister and her family coming to join us for Thanksgiving. I am so excited and grateful they could come and just wanted to express it.

One last thing I am extremely grateful for....The semester is almost over!!!!

Totally Hilarious

I found this hilarious and wanted to share it with you all. So on Monday I decided to rake some leaves while waiting for the bus to drop Stephen off and Jack wanted to help. We were near the end of taking care of our leaf piles when Jack wanted me to bury him in one to scare Stephen when he got off the bus. (All his idea) So I buried him in the pile and we continued to wait for the bus. Well the bus came and I walked with Stephen over to the leaf pile and stopped, pretending to look at his art work while trying to give Jack the chance to scare him. Well Jack never popped up so I nudged the pile and still nothing. I started to get worried that maybe he was being suffocated so I hurried and unburied him to find him ASLEEP! I laughed so hard! And telling it over just makes me laugh more!

The Dreaded Swine Flu

So Matt and Jack have been sick all weekend and today we did research on the Swine Flu. They have every symptom...and I am starting to not feel so good. Stephen on the other hand could not feel better. He has been bouncing around the house entertaining us all as we lie helplessly on the couch. We think somehow he stole all of our energy and consumed it. So off to the doctor tomorrow.

Halloween Weekend


I'm running just a little behind...but those who frequent my site know that this is nothing unusual. We had a great Halloween with a lot of fun activities. Jack had a Halloween parade at his school and Stephen had a harvest party at his school. I went in to help at Stephen's school for the day and he was sooooo excited about it. He wanted to introduce me to everyone and then come and eat lunch with him. Thanks to a friend of mine I get to go into Stephen's school every other Tuesday, while she watches Jack for me. I have to take advantage of it now because soon it will be embarrassing for him to have me around.

After the school activities we had the ward Trunk or Treat and dinner which the kids loved. Jack for dinner had a huge (costco) cupcake that was the size of his head and then we found him at the cupcake walk eating ANOTHER CUPCAKE!! That wasn't the end either, the next stop was the cookie decorating station. He has the eating thing down. Now we just have to work on healthy eating. The next night was Halloween and the kids got loaded-up with candy. I have learned that candy must be stored up high or else when I am not looking they both won't stop eating it. Stephen had so much candy on Halloween night (because I wasn't paying attention) he got a stomachache. It was a fun Halloween. Unfortunately, ever since all the Halloween excitement we have been down sick with some kind of nasty bug.
