Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope all my wonderful Friends and Family have a great day! I love this time of year and it's actually raining today so it seems more like Winter.. Yea! I have been sick the last couple of days so I wasn't able to walk the Turkey Trot this morning, dangit! Next year for sure! So since today is the day of Thanks I thought I would list a few things that I am thankful for in my life.. started with my wonderful Husband, I am thankful for how hard he works to take care of me and the kids and what a wonderful dad he is to our children, I'm thankful for my kids and the joy and pain they bring me, I'm thankful for thier health (most of the time) and the way they look when they are happy and excited and the way they tell me with such innocents how much they love me! I am thankful for my wonderful parents and siblings(and of course all the inlaws and neices and nephews), I couldn't imgaine life without them. I am thankful for Mike wonderful parents and his brothers (once again the sister in laws are awesome and the neices are great!). I am thankful to be living back in Thatcher so that we can be closer to both families and our kids can grow up in the same enviroment that we did. I am thankful for my church and the knowledge we have that families can be together forever. I am thankful for the freedom we have living in this country. I'm Thankful for my wonderful friends that are always there when I need them! I'm thankful for not having to ever cook a Thanksgiving meal since we either go to mine or Mikes mom house:) Those ladies are the best cooks! Of course I could go on and on, but these were just a few of them! I do hope everyone has a great day and eats and sleeps alot! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Pima Turket trot run!

So lately I have been on a exercise/ eat better and NO soda kick !! In hopes of losing some much needed weight :) I've kinda throw around the idea of running a marathon.. it seems to work for all the stars right?? But of course I would have to get in much better running/walking shape.. So the other day I went to my sis in laws Tye house and she was passing out flyers for the Pima Turket trot run that happens every year on Thanksgiving morning.. it's a 1 mile fun run/walk or a 5 mile run that starts at 7am! (I haven't quit figured out which one I want to do :) What a better way to get started though right? So Tye and I are trying to get a team together, it's a $10 entry fee, .. you can get more information at If your interesting in joining our team let me know, I think it will be super fun!

Crazy boy

So lately Kannon has been testing his limit on what he can do! Or maybe he is just testing my limits.. I haven't figured it out! It's funny cause he has gotten himself in some pretty sticky places that he can't seem to figure out how to get out of, and everytime he yells out loud, DADDY (that's the name he uses towards me lately, use to be mommy, but not anymore!) I then have to go get him, even funnier is everytime if Kenzee is around she freaks out "Mommy go get him, he is hurt, go get him.. like it's the end of the world :) To cute! Maybe one day he'll figure out that he can't always just get into everything.. or maybe he long as I'm there to help him out.. isn't that what moms are for!

Vote 2008

Yea I voted!!! I was a little worried about the lines, so when I dropped Kolbee off at preschool me and the babies went to vote ( I thought it would be easier with just 2 kids compared to 4!) But when I got to the polls they weren't to bad and I was done within 10 mins.. I called Mike about that time and told him if there was anyway to take an early lunch and drive down there he should since it wasn't to busy!! Anyways I'm just glad it's over and it wasn't to bad so now the waiting of who will be our new president begins... finger crossed :)

So this might sound sad, but I'm a little relieved that Halloween is over this year!!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Halloween and everything about it, but for some reason this was a very busy year for me! I think I volunteered myself to much, life seems so much more hectic when you have kids in school, and I only have one! I started the day by baking 2 dozens cupcakes for the festival at the school, went and got a veggie tray for Kenzee classroom party (I almost voluteered some other baked goods, but thought buying some veggies would be easier!) took them down to the school in time to get Kenzee in her costume for the parade at school, after it was over rushed home to decorate the cupcakes when I finished it was pretty much time for me to take them down to the festival, which I voluteered for the cake walk when I got there.. did my time and took the girls threw the haunted hallway (bad ides for both girls!! ) then we left there early to go visit family.. was able to grab a bit at burger king (YUCK!) and made it to my nephews first state playoff game by 7 (I was a little late, but it was a easy win for the kids!! GO RIDERS..) I'm sure other people had busy a day too (thanks Thatcher PTO for the festival!!) This year I was excited though cause Kannon wasn't so little and was able to hold his pail (even though he threw it more then he held it!) I didn't know how it would be since I put his costume on and he threw the biggest fit trying to get it off.. he didn't like it at all, but with a few bites of some candy he forgot he didn't like it! Kenzee wanted to be Tinkerbell and Kolbee was snow white! (they were the cutest princesses out there..) but over all the kids had a good day and it really wasn't so bad for me!
