Just wanted to wish my handsome husband a happy birthday!! What a great man I married. He can fix just about anything, drive a tractor, shoot a basketball, take care of the kids when needed, smart as can be, play the piano, great coach, and my best friend. Just a few reasons I love this man. Happy Birthday!
I thought that I'd hurry and update my blog tonight. I say hurry but it has taken me 30 minutes to do this. Which is quite a bit when you are on mom time! It's late and I am tired so I was quite brief in my descriptions of our adventures, but who wants to read a long narrative anyway?
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year! We got our condo in Park City and my parents, sister, and my brother and his family came up for a week and partied! (We really are not big partiers but had a great time anyways). We played games, swam in the jacuzzis (it was so cold, you had to keep dunking your head under water so the icicles would melt) went to Salt Lake and looked at the lights, went to a couple of museums. It was crazy as 15 people crammed into a 2 bedroom condo (is that against fire code) but we made it work and everyone got along (most of the time) We even had two extra's for Thanksgiving dinner. My sister's roommate and her brother. Our family went skiing for two days. We put the little girls in ski school and let me tell you, they were so stinking cute!! Their skiis were so tiny! Jacie did really well and could ski by herself and Karlie had to have a little help but she loved it anyways and was mad when the lifts closed. It was a great week (even though we missed Aunt Chelsea) and so fun to have my family around me for a week!
Here is a glimpse of what we did for Halloween festivities around here. I did a really fun party for Kyrie and Tanner's friends where we had an eight course meal. All funky halloween foods of course. Anyone for some Bloody Mary soup? Of course there were the costumes: Kyrie was Alice in Wonderland, Tanner was a werewolf, Jacie was a purple butterfly princess, and Karlie was the cutest strawberry shortcake ever. We love Halloween at our house!
I am just a busy mom of five wonderful children with a sweet little angel daughter watching me from above. I live in Idaho and married a farmer. Sometimes I wonder "How did I end up here?" But I know that even all we've been through I wouldn't change a thing. Kyle is my rock and I'm glad we are in this together. My family is my greatest joy and my biggest blessing and I look forward being with them in this journey we call life.
