You have got to be kidding me!!!
Ok, so I will start close to the begining. My table was old and dirty. Brian and I had decided to pull the table apart and clean all the cracks,and crevices. Well we did that and it was so clean it shined! We were pushing the table back together and SNAP it broke right in half, and the leg broke. We tried for quite a while to fix it, but in the end did not feel like it would be safe to use, so off it went to the dining room in the sky. This is our new table! well for a while anyway, till things get a little more comfortable, and we can buy another dining room table. But I have to say it does make for some fun and interesting dinners!! Life is such an adventure.
AND top off my day, my favorite spatula broke! And according to zach, it went to the lovely kitchen drawer in the sky. REALLY! I just wanted to scream out WHATS NEXT! Well I shouldn't have asked, my satelite on our tv went out. REALLY! Well we have a repairman coming out mon. and I bought a new spatula, we are still eating Japanese style, on th floor, buy I can live with that!

Well we survived! It was a wonderful thanksgiving holiday, with lots of friends and family, meeting new family, lots of good food, and of course those yummy pies! I did get to reflect on all the things I am thankful for, and it all comes back to family! My family is what I need in my life everyday. Even though I did not get to see my whole family, my sis, and bro did not make it this year, we had a woonderful time. Thanks for all my family, and for all everybody does for us. Thank you!!

Now on to the next holiday, thank goodness it includes pie too!

I have been enjoying reading all my friends posts about Thanksgiving, and about what they are thankful for. Well I decided that I should make my list, and ponder about thankfullness. So here it goes:
I am thankful for - Robitussin, triaminic, dayquil, nyquil, amoxcicillan, excedrin migraine, tylenol, motrin, sudafed, and my big warm comfy bed, with the electric blanket on it turned up to high. Happy thanksgiving! perhaps I will feel better tomorrow, and make another thankful list!

So take it or leave it!!
This is what 35 looks like.
Of course anyone looks better with 2 cute babies by their side. It is kind of funny, as I get older. I use to think 35 was getting old. Now, thats not old at all. I may have a few aches and pains, and a couple of stray gray hairs, but all in all, the last 35 years have treated me pretty good. Thanks to all my kids, and friends, and my wonderful hubby who have all helped make the transition of years that much sweeter! I love you all! I don't look 35 do I??????

The best dancers ever!
How cute are my girls? We had the first dance competitions of the year today, and they did so good. (I don't know what place they took yet, I'll let you know as soon as I find out).
Abby danced to the song hoe down throw down, from the Hannah Montana movie.
And Alli danced to boom boom. She did wonderful! I am such a proud mamma!

So I did these next two posts backwards, so make sure you keep reading so you understand where I am coming from . I know this is not the best pic, but I just wanted to show how BIG my kids are getting, well some of them. Just last year my boys were comparing heights, they were so close! Now, not so much. Joey has had a HUGE growth spurt, I swear I was buying him new clothes every other week. Now this is the proof how much he has grown. He is only an inch away from being as tall as me! And the poor kid is only 10 this is crazy!!! what to do, what to do. I may make him carry books on his head to keep him from growing, you think that would work?

What in the world is going on?
these pj's fit jason last week!!!!! Now look. It looks like he is waiting for a flood!
What is a mom to do. I guess I can stop feeding them or letting them sleep, but then they would just be cranky, so that won't work. Why do our babies have to grow up? It is just not fair.
Oh no where is the flood?

ok so I have not been very good at the blogging thing lately, I have blog block! I have sat down at the computer several times to do a new post, but nothing comes out. I don't have any new pictures yet, and its hard to blog without inspiration. Its not that the kids aren't doing anything cute, they constantly are, or the medical issues, they are ever present, or school, or dance...... I just have a block. Maybe I need a muse. Any ideas???
