Brett is 28 today!!! We are slowly growing into old people and it is weird to think of howfast time is going. He has his 10 year reunion this summer... and mine is the summer after. Wow.

Brett is an amazing husband and is such a wonderful father to these girls. They are so lucky and they love him so much. Its fun to watch him as a dad and them playing together makes my heart melt.

Happy Birthday sweetie. I love you more and more every year so dont worry about getting old. :)



 I have had a great week and I have definetly been able to count my many blessings. I have so much gratitude for the things that I have. I am definetly blessed with an amazing husband, three beautiful kids that light up my life and make me so happy, my husbands job, our home, and the list goes on and on.

A friend of mine had this quote on her blog and it is so appropriate.

He is a wise man who does not grieve
for the things which he has not,
but rejoices for that which he has.


 We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family. Whats not to love about this holiday- I especially love shopping on Black Friday. This is how this crazy tradition goes in my family.... All of my aunts and cousins sit down at a very large table and we all come up with our individual lists of what we need from what store.  Then we decide who is going to what store. This year since Walmart has their specials starting at 10- most of us went there first except the few that went to wait in lines in the freezing cold. We then divided into sections of the store. This year I was in the DVD department and I will say this- i will never do the dvd section again. I got hit, scratched on my face, my glasses got knocked off, I got pushed into a shelf. It was madness. I was out to get everyone's dvd's and I came away with less than half of what I was supposed to get. Oh well. Everyone else got what we needed elsewhere in the store and we all met up and got in line and divided up who's stuff was who's. After Walmart, we divided and went to other stores that were opening at 12, 4, &5. I went from Walmart to Best Buy then to Target. I got almost everything I wanted- thanks to my family who divides and conquers on black Friday.

My family is amazing and I am so grateful for them!

Cars are the worst!! I am so frustrated by Brett's car. Granted, it was given o us for free but we put 1200 dollars into it in January and now, again it is needing another 1000. It's just not worth it at this point so we are going to park it to gather dust in our garage.
It isn't like we can not survive without two cars. Brett only goes to work in that car so I will have to drive him and pick him up but other than that, he doesn't go anywhere else without me. The crappy thing is it cost us over a hundred dollars to find out that it's broken. Bummer. But it lasted us a good two years or so.

Lion & Tigers & Bears- OH MY!!

 Halloween was a lot of fun. We had a trunk or treat at our church on Saturday and Khloe & Anavy had school parties on Monday. Then we went to Brett's work for a really fun party and trick or treating. Then we drove to Orem to go trick or treating some more with the girls' Nana (my mom)

They had a lot of fun and didnt want to stop but it was getting cold and so we spent some time with Brett's parents. They had a long day and fell asleep instantly when we got int he car to go home.
