I have to stop and catch my breath. What a nice long weekend. Chris and I had Pat and Blackie over for Turkey Day, then we went to my mom's for appetizers and punkin pie. The kiddos stayed the night with the grandma's (and papa) so Chris and I could go shopping on Black Friday. WOW! I am done christmas shopping for the monkey brats. I just need to get our parental units done, the fruit loop (kenny), teachers, and the babysitter. Then, I will be officially done xmas shopping. Whew.
I met fickel for scrapping on saturday, bought a cool little something for ms. patricia, (mama pat) and cannot wait for her to get it. Hee Hee..can't share cause she's a follower (reader of the blog).
Then, as i was reading karen's blog today, I see this..find your elf name..of course i had to do it! lol..
Your Elf Name Is...

Only 4 more sleeps! Then it will be Thanksgiving Day!
Riles told me this at 7:00 this morning, after I had just gone to bed at 4:30. She is excited because she is spending the night with Grandma and Papa. Chris and I are going shopping the day after Thanksgiving, and he wants to get up EARLY. He is the one who is excited. Me, i just want to get all the shopping done. I have a good start, but need some little stuff for the kiddos. Including stocking stuffers. I have danny's jolly red fat man present, but need ms. riles'. I think she is going to get the VSmile..but not the pink one, that's for girls! (geesh..what was i thinking!)

I have to renew my teaching license this month. OUCH! It is expensive.
Ok..here are some pictures of Mindy and Fickel when we were in Kansas City.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

why do you suppose?
the grass is green instead of purple?
smurfs were blue?
kamakazi pilots wore helmets?
Riley doesn't like pink cause its for girls? (go figure on that one)
Danny won't let me take his picture anymore?
On a side note, to all the family Riles' xmas program is on Dec. 2nd this year at 4 or 4:30. I will double check the time (this is a sunday) from what i understand it will be the christmas story or something similar. I don't have all the details yet, but will probably get them soon. I have no idea why it is a sunday this year, other than the fact Pooh services students from 4 school districts, and with all of their school programs and only 3 weeks in December to get them done, they ran out of options.

Update on Hadleigh,
I guess they will be doing her surgery sometime the week after Thanksgiving. Stacy said they really won't know the exact date until the time gets closer. I am planning on going up the day of surgery. Just to be there for stacy, turtis, and of course granny (aka kathy).
ok.. later gators, i have homework to do..gots me a 10 page paper to write..do on the 1st!
(Also, on Dec. 8th. we are scrapping at the store..it's my birfday...JEN if you are in the area STOP BY, or call and see if you can get on the list!

Amazing isn't she?

I think she has to be the most easy going baby I have seen. She let stacy and I prop her up, mess with her headband, and keep taking her binky away..and she barely made a fuss. She did smile at us a couple times, and i don't care what anyone says..they were smiles. She has the BIGGEST feet! So adorable. I am posting just a couple of pics, cause i don't want to post the ones stacy wants to give out..

To those who have served...

Thank you!
Pictures from last weekend...
Went to mike and brandy's last weekend and took pics of their kiddos. Now..these are not professional, nor do i pretend to be one. I hope they make them happy, and i need to get katydid alone so i can get some different shots of her. I wasn't impressed with the ones i took. Of course, i wasn't too happy with any of the shots, but here are some i photoshopped to see if brandy would like them any better..
