O.K. so I've been tagged to write 6 facts or things about me. Thanks Traci :). I am just using Traci's and putting my own spin on it cause Im lazy. haha

1. My biggest pet peave is not having milk on Sunday mornings. haha I know weird right.

2. I love to just watch my kids. I am amazed by them and the things they think up. Today Mikelle was loading and unloading her baby doll (and all of its personal belongings) into this chair and the whole time she just kept saying "sleepy" over and over. It was so cute to me.

3. I love MUSIC!!! I love everything about music. I love to play the piano and sing. I love to hear a really good "skin tingling" baritone\tenor! (ex. Josh Groban) AHHHHH. Now thats heaven You might not know that I am taking voice lessons, as well as giving them.

4. I love when my husband gets in a mood. (not like that) Where he is just so ambitious I never know what he might do. I can come home one day and find a pond in my back yard, or our entire house will have new molding or something like that. He is a little crazy. haha I love ya honey.

5. I love having a wood stove in my house. OK random I know but it is so comfortable to me. I always had one in our homes growing up and it just reminds me of that I guess. When I was little we would wake up in the mornings to read scriptures(6am) and we would all go snuggle around the fire and try to stay awake. haha Ahhhhh. Good times Good times! :)

6.One of my biggest dreams was to be an opera singer. From the time I was little I thought that would be amazing. Now my biggest dream is to make it through one meal with out having to sweep my wood floors again. haha funny how things change huh. I am going to tag Mrs. Bond, Mrs. Doyle, and Mrs. Jones (if you havn't already done this)


Well it is a holiday tradition on my husbands side of the family to be very serious black friday shoppers! This was only my 2nd year of participating in this wild tradition but it was soooo much fun!

We drove to Flagstaff on thursday night, got to our hotel room and tore into the sale adds. We finally went to sleep about 11:00 pm.

Then to my ears delight the alarm went off at 3:00 am and we were up and ready to go by 3:45 am.

This is us getting serious about the sales! Traci didn't get the memo. haha

We shopped all day and didn't get home untill about 8:pm. Wow!!! I deffinetly spent too much money but I got most of my Christmas shopping knocked out so that is good. I didn't throw any punches or any thing either so that is also a plus I hear. I did explode another egg though and this time it was all over myself. haha LOL Tobi. Well my best deal of the trip was by far the wool coat that Michael bought me. (He doesn't know that yet though. haha) and it was regularly 140$ and I got it for 40$. Not bad huh. I also got a food saver for like 70% off, also a smoking deal. We drove 2 vehicles this year (good call) and we pretty much had both packed from top to bottom!

Well most of all it was so much fun to get to spend quality time with the girls we had a blast! Good food (olive garden) , good company, good deals, good times, I Cant wait to do it all again next year!

This was the aftermath, I sure have alot of wrapping to do!

The Best Fire Starter Ever

Ok so the other day we were getting ready to build a fire. I walked out of the room and when I came back this is what my baby was up to. She did almost all of this by herself Im not kidding. The only thing we helped her with was moving the wood the other direction and then of course Michael helped her light it. I was cracking up! She is such an observant and smart little girl! We could not imagine a day with out her to make us smile! :)

Halloween!!!! Girls from another time!!!

Jayda was our little "50s girl" she kept telling everyone that she was either a "Poodle" or a "fifteens girl" it has been cracking me up but we finally got it down.

Mikelle was a "flapper girl" which is totally random I know but I think whe was sooo adorable. She had the cutest white feather boa that went with it but she was not having any part of it! Oh well you cant win them all. We mostly just went to familys houses and we deffinetly got the hook up from them all!!! Thanks guys!!!! We met up at Tobis house and got pics with all 17 grandkids before the trick or treating so here are some of those.

This was all of the grandkids on Michaels side except Tracis baby Brittyn.

Hiking down the street to the next house is a challenge with this many kiddos. You need a police escort or something. haha

Mikelle loved helping Grandma Becky pass out candy. She would scream and run every time the door bell rang.

This is by far my favorite picture of the night!!!! I love when my girls are nice to each other!!! :)

Hope you enjoyed love you all and hope to see all of your Halloween pics!
