With tomorrow being thanksgiving and all, I just wanted to wish everyone A great and happy thanksgiving! As i sat getting things ready for christmas and cursing the season all together...and how fast the time flys during this time of year... I decided to sit back for a minute and think about all the things i have been blessed with this year!
I am so thankful for my husband how he always puts his family first. A husband who appreciates even if the house is kinda clean, and loves me even when i am in a dirty large t-shirt and my fav. sweats. (which seems to be the re-occuring theme at my house) I am thankful for my girls. i never realized the capacity in which you could love another person. Watching them as they sleep. I am SOOO thankful that my children are healthy, and have LOTS of energy. I am thankful that aaron was able to get an amazing residency...and I AM SUPER thankful we ended up with people we love. I am thankful for my bestest bella. who without her morning phone calls i dont know if i could make it thru the day! For having someone to call a friend that knows me, and loves me even when I pull a "candace". I am thankful for our families who are so incredibly supportive, and loving. I am thankful for sisters, and sisters-in-laws who make family vacations all the rave! I am thankful for my brothers who i love with all my heart. they keep me down to earth and explain to me all the time that i am not as cool as i think i am! I am thankful for my mommy...who is truly my closest friend and supports me even when she knows i am making a bad choice. I am thankful that she is always there to talk to in all hours of the night...and for several hours on tuesdays! I am thankful for the having the gospel of jesus christ in my life. Having that sweet comfort in my daughters lives and knowing that we will be together forever. I am thankful for a time of year when we can stop and reflect on all that we have in our lives...i hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving....and thank you for being a part of ours!

The second event was halloween it's self..side note ashlyn also had a class party but i was a lame bad mom and didnt go so i have no pictures from that but ashlyn dressed up three days in a row so by actual halloween she was like again? But we went to a friends house and all brought yummy food...enter holiday weight gain, i think i am starting early this year! And then took the kids trick or treating in their neighborhood. it was awesome! everyone gave out full size candy bars...and chips was a big one this year. did anyone else get bombarded with chips? I also kinda forgot how fun it is to take a lil one on their first halloween outting. This year was alysse's first real halloween considering she was like four months old last year. and it is so much fun to watch her little eyes light up and she arent exactly sure why but people were handing her candy and no one was taking it away. she was screaming and smiling all night. All in all we had a great last couple of days and i am happy to say it is over and on with the holiday season. it is now onto making calendars, writing year ending letters, cleaning like crazy, buying presents, and some were in the middle trying to remind our kids (and ourselves) what the holidays are really about...i hope everyone had a great halloween and i cant wait to see all yout lil ones dressed up in their favorite super hero too....
