Giving Thanks

Although we spent Thanksgiving in Glendale, AZ. at a hockey tournament with my parents joining us, we did get to enjoy a real home made dinner with my hubby's parents. It was really sweet. We feel so blessed

And we are so thankful everyone is healthy and happy in our family. As many are sick and suffering we are always blessed to have our Savior in the midst of all our circumstances.

I pray your family is praising Him today for His grace and blessings are sufficient for all who seek Him!

Christmas time Traditions...

Last year the kids started a fun family tradition, watching Christmas movies, whether it is from our stash of Christmas DVDs or a Christmas special on TV they will not miss it and it's in full force tonight! We watched "Merry Madagascar Christmas" on NBC. So cute! And the best part for the man and I is all the belly laughs!! Let the Christmas movies and traditions begin.

What are some of your family traditions?

dress up or not...

so this Halloween was a bit different. My boys decided they were going to be nerds and they went with it , i mean they did the whole thing themselves. i was so excited they picked something that wasn't evil, because we don't do evil.

the nerd thing was not at all hard for them because sometimes they really act like "nerds"

not really but sometimes we think so!!

they played it well

this little one started out in a hand me down shunk costume i made 10 years ago

but it was to hot, so she became a princess/fairy and it suited her perfectly, once she was handed that first bag of skittles nothing else mattered!

then the mermaid
(thanks to Lindsey @ imperfect for the mermaid skirt idea)

and the perfect nerds!

Happy November!!
