My newest pet peeve

I have decided that I hate hate HATE fruit flies. Does anyone else have them right now? I think it may be the apples I have in my laundry room that are attracting them. What do you do about them? I know they only live a day but they multiply that quickly too? SERIOUSLY!

I am thankful for....

Our sweet little Desiree
My little family on Thanksgiving. Why does Noah have that look on his face? Maybe because we're all squishing him?

This is what I get to wake up to every morning. A snot covered sweety that always has a smile for me.

We play a game at my parent's house on Thanksgiving called "I am Thankful for...." We take a jar of cream and and we pass it around and shake it while we say what we are thankful for until it turns to butter. I recieved the jar around 5 times. The following is what I said I am thankful for......chemotherapy, electricity, my wonderful husband and beautiful daughters, my parents, my siblings, and all of my family, my 110 year old house that rattles every time the train passes by. Those are just a few of the wonderful blessings I have in my life. I neglected to say that I am thankful for the gospel. Luckily, someone in my little family said that on her very first try without any help. AnnaBelle recieved the jar and without hesitation said, "I am thankful for Jesus." Tear......what a good little girl. There were many things I didn't get to say before the cream turned to butter. I am so grateful for the sweet little snotty hands that are reaching for the keyboard as I type and somehow, she keeps hitting the caps key so I have to re-type. My girls.....their little smiles, and their health. For food on the table and warm beds at night. I am so grateful for my absolutely wonderful, hardworking husband who works so hard for us to have everything we need. For my wonderful parents that never cease to amaze me. For my friends, that make everyday better. For extended family. For Noah's good parents and family. For garbage disposals, DVR, and central vac. There are so many things I am grateful for and I don't think there is any way I can show the amount of gratitude I have to you or to my Heavenly Father. I guess the best way we can show him is to do what he asks of us. I try to live the gospel the best that I can but I know that I can do a lot more and do so much better. I substituted in Primary yesterday and I forgot some of the basic principles I was taught as a child. There are so many things that can make us doubt or wonder because we need proof or we look too far into it. The basic principles are all we need to remember. The ones we learned in primary. I am a Child of God, I know my Father Lives, I'm trying to be like Jesus, Popcorn Popping :)

I just wanted you all to know how thankful I am for the many blessings I have and for each of you. Wow, I was actually serious for once in my life. This is groundbreaking.
Really though, Thank you all!!!!

Black Friday

I never really knew why they call it Black Friday. I just figured it was because of the poor people that are stuck working that early in the morning and dealing with crazy people. So, we arrived at Wal-Mart at 5:45 a.m. I casually walk in with my sisters and mom, hoping to find a good deal. Little did I know that I would be ran over by a crazy, bald man in a tank top. I also didn't know that reaching for a $5.oo Barbie could get you trampled. What I hate admitting the most is that I didn't know that I was one of the crazys. I fit right in. Oh well.

Happy Thanksgiving

We just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! We had a great one. We went to my parent's house for dinner, and then we went to the movie "Enchanted." It was really cute. Then we went back and played games and watched "Christmas Vacation" (it's tradition!) We are heading out to the after Thanksgiving Day sales. It should be really fun. I will post if I get beat-up by some crazy shopper or ran over by a cart. Last year, someone stole my cart when I left it un-attended. People are nuts! We only go for the good times!!!

Yesterday we went to Cabella's for AnnaBelle's pre-school field trip. She was so excited to go meet Cabella. For some reason she got it in her head that Cabella was a person. I guess because I kept saying"tomorrow we're going to Cabella's. It's going to be so fun!" She was asking if Cabella could come over and play. She wanted to know if Cabella had a mommy. I kept saying "no, because Cabella's is a store." She was so concerned that Cabella didn't have a mommy. Finally when we got there, she figured it out. It was so cute!

Listening to the presentation. They got some cool stickers!

October Update

Hey All! Sorry I've been out for a while. October was CRAZY! I have a few fun updates though. First of all, right after my last post, we left for Lake Powell. It was such a fun trip! It couldn't have come at a more perfect time. I DESPERATELY needed a vacation. Most of my family made it so that was fun. I will post a few pics.

I was the Assistant Director of the Lehi Children's Theater this workshop session. We finished Cinderella last night. I am glad it's over but it was a lot of fun. I helped sew over 80 costumes for it. That was crazy!

Halloween was last week. We had so much fun. AnnaBelle was a cow and Desiree was a horse. She didn't like her costume and she kinda got too big for it so she just wore a cute Halloween outfit on the actual holiday. AnnaBelle loved trick-or-treating. Our niece Khloe spent the week with us while her mom (my sister Wendy) and my mom went on the Miss America Cruise. It was a funny that she was a cowgirl. She fit right in.

Lastly, it was election time. My brother, Johnny was going for re-election. To make a long story short, I got a little involved and in a little deep water with the challengers but the incumbents won in the end. Actually, they KILLED them! It was great. I am SO glad that's all over but I am sure we'll have to deal with some contraversy that they will come up with. Anyway, October was great.

I have a funny story to share. Last Sunday, Noah and I were fasting and the day was dragging know how that is. Anyway, we were looking for stuff to keep us occupied to make the time go by faster. Noah suggested that we all go outside and play. So we all went outside. Noah, AnnaBelle, Desiree, Tica, me, and the new kitty. Yes....we got a kitty. Don't get me started on that! Anyway, Noah and AnnaBelle were playing baseball. The way they play is kinda interesting. Basically Noah waits for AnnaBelle to swing and then he throws the ball. After a while, he suggested that I throw. So I tried a couple of times but AnnaBelle would miss because I would throw it a second too late. After 3 or 4 times of missing, AnnaBelle said "'re not very good at this, I want Daddy to throw it." I said "Hey, gimme a chance." So I tried a few more times and missed again... and she said " need to sit down and just watch." That was the end of my pitching. Oh well.
