Thanksgiving was full of family, food, and fun. Here are a few things I am thankful for. I'm so very grateful for a very very patience husband who is will to sacrifice his taste buds at every meal. I'm also thankful for everything he does from making breakfast to changing diapers to sitting next to me watching a silly T.V. show. I do not think there is a page long enough for me to write everything I'm thankful for when it comes to my husband. I'm most grateful for his sweet and unconditional love he has for me.
I'm also thankful for....
Laughing as trying to get a family picture taken with two little ones.

I'm Thankful for Grandparents that at a moments notice will watch their Grand babies when Mommy needs some quiet time.

Thankful for two beautiful children that after a good night sleep can be the happiest kids on earth.

My Little Broom

As you can see from the pictures Roxie is eating off the floor. Roxie decided that crackers were much better on the floor than in a bag in the cupboard. Lets just say pots and pans are where crackers used to be. Also on day she decided Martin didn't need a sandwich for lunch so she pulled the plate off the table and decided to eat the bread herself.

Words Roxie can say
1. Bye Bye
2. Mom or Moma
3. Dad or dada
4. Cracker
5. Booty
6. Baby
7. Da which no so sure you can count that as a word but it means down.
Sometimes Roxie will even say her middle name Jane in response to Doug or I saying it to her.

Many Faces of Roxie Jane

I couldn't help the photo of Martin. He was upset because I wouldn't let him have a cookie for Breakfast.

A little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. she can jitter around, and stomp, and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves yet just when you open your mouth she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts. ~Author Unknown

Mashed Potatoes

Roxie loves to eat EVERYTHING!! The other night Roxie was getting really upset at dinner time and she refused to eat her baby food so dad decided to let her try the mashed potatoes that we were eating. She was so excited! She finished off at lest one adult serving size of mashed potatoes and was still hungry after that.

Scary Ghost, No Scary Ghost, Scary Ghost, No Scary Ghost

Since the beginning of October I have been asking Martin what he wants to be for Halloween and the same answer came up NOTHING!! That's right I have the only 3 year old on the planet who doesn't want to dress up and go trick or treating. Finally a week before Halloween Martin decided he wanted to be a SCARY GHOST. I thought prefect after all that is the easiest costume to make I will use an old pillow case and cut it up and NO. Martin decided October 31st he didn't want to be a scary ghost and he didn't want to go tick or treating. Well thankfully I know Martin and I knew things would change and I didn't cut up my pillow case.

As the day went on the kids and I headed over to Grandma and pa Wimmers house for their ward Trunk or Treat party and 30 mins before we were going to leave Martin demand to be a Scary Ghost. I laughed and said " Maybe next year this year you are going as a missionary." So I dressed him in his suit and we borrowed a Tag and headed out for the Trunk or Treat. I dressed Roxie in her Tutu, Doug wore his kimono and I put on a Big Wig and Bright red lipstick and I was going to carry around the guitar from guitar Hero but instead I was caring around a Ballerina.

Martin loved the Trunk or Treating and can't wait for next year.
