Sleds + Snow = FUN!!

Even though Garet spent most of his time crashing and burning he was still a happy camper!

The human train
Jeff, Easton, Kaleb, Jace and Uncle Bryan
Kaleb with Easton....these two were so brave! Poor Kaleb got the wind knocked out of him, it scared him a little but he was right back up to the top of the hill to try again!
Luckily we didn't have to take Jeff to the ER! :)
We missed you Mommy and Maddie!!

Okay, I know I am a little lame and behind.... BUT, I vow to start catching up this second (Saturday 5:28am)...

YES, I am one on those moms that was enthralled, engrossed... okay, maybe even consumed with the torrid (is that even a word?? K, maybe not exactly what I mean, but it sounded good...) love affair between vampire Edward and normal gal Bella... aka: Twilight. My awesome, also "consumed" friend Candis counted down the days till the movie came out and threw an awesome bash for us:
Our lovely dinner: notice the platter of apples in the middle(my favorite touch!!) Our course consisted of ravioli and Coke.... a must have "first dinner" for any Twilight fan!
Hanging out playing Twilight trivia games before heading to the theater.
At the theater...eagerly awaiting 12:01 am!! (Look at end seat, and count up 4...there I am sitting by my friend Bobby)
Still waiting...
Okay, I LOVED the movie....maybe some of you that re-read the book right before weren't as impressed,; but, I've only read all four books once and I loved it!! Some of the cheesy parts were a little over the top, but, for the most part, I would give it a thumbs up....maybe it's because I love teenager movies?? Anyway, I am hoping to go see it again next Friday. YAY Christina!! I'm glad you want to go see it!!

Don't you hate it when....

...you call the gas company and vacate your house for Family Home Evening because of a "bad odor"...and then, the gas technician comes out to check for leaks to find only a very minor one ...and then, after he leaves you get ambitious and decide to unload your dishwasher to find this melted in the bottom:

Well, this is kind of the predecessor for my crazy first 6 weeks of working. We are well, and I am loving my job...I really don't know if I'd like it as much if I wasn't in management; but, I am very grateful!! Hopefully, things will start turning around for Jeff's business soon, too, and all will be well. I feel like I am finally "adjusting" to working at night. This week my house is actually clean and laundry done before the weekend.... a BIG THANKS to my dear husband who has been stepping up and helping out more! I really couldn't do this without him!! We have had a fun October with family parties and all and I am hoping to start catching up on posting soon. Sorry to all that I have been MIA lately, but I hope to remedy this soon. I look forward to catching up on all of your blogs!! 8)

"You're Hired!!"

After a LONG two-week 5 interview process, I got the job at Target!! I start tomorrow! I will be a "Team Lead" (aka: Assistant Manager) for the night crew. The next two and a half months are going to be kind of crazy with the holidays and getting adjusted to my new schedule, but I look forward to this opportunity to work for a great company with great benefits and a promising future! (Don't I sound like a model employee already??)

Just a little pat on my back...

Don't you love how our kids get to be spotlighted and what-not in their classes?? What it should really be called is: "Mommy Homework." I think I did okay, how about you??
