My new toy!!

Hubby got up and to the store at 4am and got me this...

Yup, I got a Cricut today as an early Christmas present. Hubby got a new monitor and couldn't wait till Christmas to open it so we both got new toys early. I always thought these were cool and this deal was just WAY TO GOOD to pass up!

I'm thankful for...

My wonderful family.
My beautiful children and wonderful hubby.
All my friends near and far.
Our health and our home, our recently remodeled basement.
And so much more!

The baby is calling....
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!

I made my first apple pie for dinner today and it was yummy!! We had a great meal at mom's house and just had a fun day hanging around and eating lots.

New Toy

Got a new toy for my birthday....

My brother got me playing on his PS2 and then we got Guitar Hero 2 for the Xbox 360. I enjoy playing it but the songlist isn't real great. GH 3 on the other hand has an awesome variety of songs!! I got through one section last night and then a 'Battle' pops up! Now I have to beat some guy in a battle to move on to the next section of songs. In this battle mode you can hurt your opponent by shaking their notes, adding notes, increasing the difficulty etc. So we will see how long I get stuck on this!

I had a great time cropping with the Peaches. I got 7 pages done even though my pictures didn't come in on time. I'm going with some other friends to Archiver's tomorrow night but I am not organized at all, oh well, it's still fun! At least I'll have my pictures for tomorrow. After the crop I met hubby and the kids at Chili's .... LOVE their nachos, YUM! Then home to a cookie cake. That reminds me, I've got to get to the gym this weekend :)

In other news...
Getting ready for Thanksgiving break. I had lunch with the kindergarteners on Monday, Yummy school food :)

Today I had a lovely brunch with friends from church. Three of us have little baby boys and we are going to be in trouble when they get moving! There's no telling what they will be getting into.

Tomorrow I'm at Betty's Back Porch for the day. Saturday Victoria has another cooking class, her cousin is going with her and they are making Smashed potatoes and Homemade Stuffing. They are so excited! After that we're going to go watch Daddy's 'boys' play their first basketball game of the season. The away games are so far we will not be going to any of those but we're looking forward to the home games.

Everytime that I post lately I don't have access to my pictures... maybe I'll get some Halloween ones posted before 2008, lol.

This week...

Hubby started coaching again! Yup, he is now the head JV and assistant Varsity coach of the boys high school basketball teams at a Christian Academy near by. It was something that came up very quickly in the middle of his thesis being due and a phone defense for it. But after much thought and prayers we decided that he would do it. The biggest downside is that we now have to get a sitter at least twice a week for the nights that I'm teaching. And on game night he will be home quite late especially on away games.... I have to remember the bedtime routine for Victoria, it's been so long since I put her to bed.

Victoria is excited about going to games again, it has been a while and she really enjoys them.

I had forgotten all about adding Halloween pictures here. I will try to soon, can't get to the pics right now.

Trey is in full food mode now. He is in his highchair and has had Peaches, Bananas and Peas with cereal. I found a site about making baby food and have starting doing that... we have carrots, bananas, applesauce and sweet potatoes in the freezer. Ice cube trays are great for this! Each serving is about an ounce so you can just take out what you need.

Frustration!! I'm going scrapbooking Saturday with the Peaches and my pictures that I ordered have not come yet! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they come tomorrow. yes, I have other pictures that I could work on, BUT I have this thing about working in order. We'll see what happens tomorrow!

Saturday is also my birthday, so after the crop I think the 4 of us are going out to eat.... any suggestions on where to go?? Nowhere is screaming out at me. Then we're having lunch at mom and dad's Sunday.

gotta go!
