Giving Thanks

Well another wonderful Thanksgiving has come and gone and it was just as joyous as the ones celebrated in the years past. We were able to spend it at the Sannar's with all of the family except our brother Paul and his family. It was wonderful and the food was delicious as it always is! I am extremely grateful for family and for us being so close to them to make holidays so wonderful! I am also so grateful for a beautiful loving family and a very loving and supportive husband that supports me in all I do. As I sit back and ponder all of my blessings it is difficult to put into words my appreciation for my Heavenly Father and all he does for me. I know that my blessings come because of him and his love for each one of us. I hope that we will find ourselves this holiday season giving thanks to him and being aware of all of the blessings we are given on a daily basis. It is difficult to comprehend that someone can love and bless us as much as he does.
On a different note. We left for St. George Thursday evening arriving around 11:30 at night. We are still here enjoying the beautiful weather that is here for us. We brought our travel trailer to store for the winter. Jared's parents,sister and my brother Paul and his family are here also. We have had a great time together. On Friday night Jared's parents and sister went with us to see BOLT the movie. Our kids loved it. The RV park we are staying at has a swimming pool that the kids just haven't been able to get enough of. They swam for about 4 hrs straight yesterday and did get sunburned believe it or not! They were all pruned up! We are getting ready to pack up to head home this afternoon. BUMMER!!! Vacations are never long enough in my opinion. We hope this holiday season finds all of you happy and healthy and doing the things you all enjoy! We love you all!!!!

Hello Everyone-
It's been a while since I last posted. Life is busy as ever especially with the holidays approaching. I have not had a moment to post anything new. It's so hard to believe that we are only a week away from Thanksgiving. I swear it was just barely the first of November. Wow! It's crazy to think how fast this year has gone by! I hope all of you are doing well. I'll hopefully get to post again soon with some pics, maybe! Be safe and enjoy your Thanksgiving.

So here is the product of our Crazy day! The pics turned out so cute! Hannah was so tired but we convinced her that if she smiled big we could go home. She was all about that! I'll post some more pics soon but at least here is one for now.

Crazy Day!

So today was Jareds most dreaded day of the year. We had family pics taken and he absolutely hates this day. Overrall I have to admit it went very well and they turned out so adorable if I must say so myself! We had some professional pics taken by Gallery Photography and then we went up to Mueller Park Canyon and took some more with our own camera. They turned out so good!! I will post some soon. I am writing this at work and don't have the capabilities to add pics at this time but I will get some on here soon so you can see the finished product of our CRAZY day! Even though it went so well it felt like an eternity taking them! Pictures are just hard with kids no matter what and you all would agree with me I'm sure. We also spent part of the day cleaning up leaves, cutting and pruning trees and bushes around the yard getting things ready for winter. I hate the thought that winter is starring us right in the face! I'm not ready it came so fast this year!!! Today we were at Costco and the kids could not believe that all of the Christmas stuff was out already. I told them that it was just a little bit more than a month away and they got so excited. They too could not believe how fast this past year has gone by. Well that was our Crazy day and now I'm at work all night. It will be long for sure since I am already so tired and worn out. Well I'll post again soon with some pics.

Hi Everyone!
Well Halloween has come and gone! It's amazing how the time has flown by. The radio is alreay playing Christmas music on FM 100 and Kosy 106.5. I do love the music but it just doesn't seem like it should already be that time of year. I thought you would like to see some pics of Halloween and how cute all the goblins were. I am trying to find some spare time to get our blog up and running but spare time doesn't come by too often. I hope all of you had a Happy Halloween! Sorry there are no pics of Jared but he wasn't with us trick-or-treating besides he wasn't dressed up anyway. Hopefully I will get some more pics on here soon. I was sad to have to start all over from scratch after losing my last blog site but I will get some on here soon. Hope you have a good rest of the week. Bye Bye!

Halloween Pics

Hannah saying cheeeeez! She was a "bearwy, cary, pider"according to her vocabulary. My translation for that is a very, scary spider.

The three trick-or-treaters out on Main Street gathering some yummy candy. Wow, they all look so grown up to me.
Ethan was a Ninja, Emma a purple witch (don't forget the purple!) and Hannah the Spider.
The whole group! Yes I did dress up since the kids begged me to. My costume was pretty easy since I have access to all of my accessories. He He!!
