For this I am thankful....

We had a wonderful thanksgiving day. We spent some time with our friends, and had a fabulous meal. Thanksgiving always reminds me of what I have to be thankful for. Of course my mind always goes back to my faith and family! I have three beautiful children who are healthy. I have a wonderful husband who loves God, and his family. I also have a great extended family. Our church loves and supports us, and I have awesome friends all around the globe! I could not be more blessed. The kids spent some time playing with this new wii game that we got for christmas (early present :)). It is called outdoor adventure. The games require you to use your body to complete the tasks. The kids (including mike) had a blast! I mentioned before that we had a great meal filled with all of the Thanksgiving staples...turkey, dressing ect...Isabella had another idea for thanksgiving supper. She decided she wanted this for supper instead:

I've been nominated....

FINALLY! I have been nominated for something. I've mentioned before that Abigail's school is implementing this new "robust vocabulary." Last night, Mike was helping Abigail learn her new words for the week. One of her words was "nominated." Mike went on to tell her the meaning of the word. After about a minute, Abigail responds with this statement, "Daddy, I nominate mommy to get a job." My response is a quote from the wicked witch of the west "All in due time my dear, all in due time." I am set to graduate December of 2010. Which seems like a long time from now, but I start my methods courses next fall. That will keep me extremely busy. So just start praying for me now!

Pictures,Pictures, and more Pictures

We had one fun day last Sunday. A good friend of mine had a very nice camera, and she took LOTS of fun pics of the kids. They were just casual pics, but were adorable! I thought I would share a few of my favorites. There were over 100, but i will just share a few :)!

Some of Isabella:

and of course my precious Abigail:

and finally last but NOT least my handsome Elijah:

Nine Months

Isabella turned nine months on election day (some day huh?) anyway, she is getting so big!!!! On her 8 month check up, she was 21.9 lbs. So by now she has to be 22 lbs at least. She is starting to get her own personality (which can be a good and bad thing haha) She does not crawl like a normal baby, but she does scoot to wherever she wants to go. She has 4 teeth now, and this has made for some interesting nights. Just wanted to post a short video. Enjoy...

Fun Filled Friday

We have been so busy lately that I have not had a chance to post anything! Of course having a virus sweep through our house did not help. Anyway...Friday was really busy for us as well. Abigail's class had their "tall tale" day on Friday. Her school does not celebrate Halloween, but their class got to dress up as a famous "tall tale" character. Abigail wanted to go as Pocahontas. Since she looked so cute...we let her keep it on for Halloween night. This is what she looked like:

Elijah was a Knight! His class did not have anything special that day, but they did give out candy. He just loves a camera, can u tell?

well that leads me to the star of the show last night. I will let you figure this one out for yourself:

I do not know if you can read the wording on this bottom pic..but it says "lil stinker" well that is almost accurate. there is nothing "lil" about her! hahaha.

well the church had theit second annual trunk or treat friday night! we had over 400 kids come through. it was awesome! hope u enjoy the pics!
