Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I won't be checking the computer for a few days, so I wanted to wish all of you a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I hope everyone has a blessed and wonderful time. Stay safe and enjoy time with your families. I hope to have some cool stories for you when I get back to writing in a few days.

P.S. 29 Days till Santa comes! :)


Today while driving home from picking the girls up, we stopped at a stop light. Tamara excitedly yelled, "Dad! Why is that one pigeon trying to ride piggy back on that other pigeon?!!!" UMM.....HMMM??? (think, think, think) Quickly I said, "Well, he's probably tired and they are buddies and he's just trying to give his friend a ride." "Then she said, "Well the one on top was flapping his wings and biting the other one's head, I wouldn't give my friend a piggy back ride if they did that to me." I said, "Honey, don't ever give anyone a piggy back ride and everything will be fine!" She replied, "Okay." GEEZ!!! One of these days answers like that aren't gonna work, man I dread those days!!


We had our pictures made with Jenny and they are AWESOME and yall can't see them until we give them out at Christmas!! NanerNaner Boo Boo!

Just A Friendly Reminder

Last night we sat around drinking hot chocolate and watching ABC Family's, countdown to 25 days till Christmas. They showed Santa Baby (very good show) and Holiday in Handcuffs (becoming one of our favorites). It really started setting the mood for the holidays. I'm so excited and can't wait!!! And here's the good news...

There is only
36 Days and 15 hours left until

I Love This Time Of Year

Anticipation. That's what this time of year is all about. Anticipating seeing family for Thanksgiving. Anticipating the pumpkin pies, turkey and dressing, sweet potatoes and lazy afternoons watching football games and Peanut specials. Anticipating Christmas shows, Rudolph and Frosty, hot chocolate and snuggley nights. Anticipating a fat little man with rosey red cheeks sneaking down the chimney to bring presents. Anticipating Christmas morning and the excitement and joy in your children's eyes as they experience the magic of Christmas for another year. There is not another time of year that is as magical as this time of year. My entire life I have loved Thanksgiving and Christmas,and the older I have gotten the more special it all becomes. I try not to take for granted any moment of this time. I try to remember every detail, savor every yummy smell and every familiar face. Too many times we stress about getting the perfect gift, preparing the perfect meals and being the perfect host. That's not what its all about. Its about spending time together. It reminds me of the last time MaKayla and I went deer hunting together. I planned and worried and did so much to make it a special trip. We ate out at cool places and went and saw cool things. We even shot a couple of deer, which I was for sure would be the highlight of the trip. On the way home she had a smile on her face that nothing or nobody could erase so I asked her, "What was your favorite part of the trip?" I fully expected her to say something like , "Seeing Ft. Mason or eating at that cool BBQ place or best of all getting to shoot a couple of deer," yet her answer left me speechless. She simply turned and said, "Spending time with you." After all the worrying, planning and effort I put in, the thing she enjoyed the most was TIME. Remember that this Holiday season. I know that there will be stresses, worries and expectations but in the end its about the time we give to each other and what we do with it. Stop for a minute, take a breath and look around...its a good time a year, enjoy the beauty of each day and the anticipation of days to come. Here's a song to help you get in the mood.

Music don't get much better than this!

P.S. There is only 42 days until Christmas!!!! :)


I'm thinking, I'm thinking, YET...there's nothing there????


I opened my one year Bible today to read the daily passage and this is what it said

Ezekiel 12:1-3

The word of the LORD came to me: "Son of man, you are living among a rebellious people. They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people.
"Therefore, son of man, pack your belongings for exile and in the daytime, as they watch, set out and go from where you are to another place. Perhaps they will understand, though they are a rebellious house."

Pretty Weird Huh?

So I was right, we are supposed to go to Canada! :) Crazy how versus come up on certain days and then seem really relevant whether they are or not.

I like this quote I saw today, I think it also goes with the current events, it says

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on." - Robert Frost



I think I'm gonna have to learn the words to this song. Stinking Americans!!!!!

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!From far and wide,
O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
