The day after the Weekend before...

Thanksgiving was so much fun. There was so much food. There was so much family. Now I wish I had a maid (oh, I forgot I AM the maid)

The grandkids had fun doing their own Nativity set!

The "girls" enjoyed doing the Wreaths.

The family enjoyed playing Apples to Apples while a kitten rested on Matt's shoulders.

And on Cameron's shoulders....very weird kat

I can't get over how weird this kat is! He was very comfy here.
We did a lot of this:

Snuggy time with mom and soon-to-be baby brother:

The girls check out the Black Friday ads:

Nick got roped into helping with the Christmas wreaths. He isn't talking to me yet, I wonder why.

Happy Birthday dad!
I love my family. They are all a little weird BUT I wouldn't have it any other way.

Me and my better half. (I really need a haircut)
Well, I gotta go, the HAZMAT team AND the EPA called and are coming over to condemn my house.

love the wreaths. Yours was my favorite, just because of the colors you chose! Glad you had such a good time. I am hoping to get my house ready for Christmas this week.

Brendon finished up his MD stuff today. Will be meeting with Bishop tonight@2020 and then with Stake President tomorrow @ 1800. Can't wait. Then if everything goes as planned, the submit button will be hit on Sunday. YIPEEEE!!!!!!

Hope we can hook-up soon.

Love you

You're the maid. Then get your buns over here and get to work at my place. I won't pay you, but you'll enjoy the company!!! OK, maybe I should at least pay for your gas up here. ok
fun times with the fam. I love weird. who wants to be normal and sane when you can be WEIRD.
love ya
I don't think you need a hair cut.
Boy, do I need to visit my daughter and have her do my hair. She always was my stylist before ---I NEED HER.
I have too many grey (I mean natural blonde) roots showing right now.

You are too funny... This maid at our house went on strike tonight!
It looks like a wonderful tme was had at your home. We also played Apples to Apples! Even the young ones like it although they haven't a clue who most of the people are.
The wreaths turned out so beautiful and so cute of the grands making their nativity sets. Precious pictures.
Girl, you need your own personal maid to accomplish all you do. My own is going to pick up steam in the morning, but tonight it is chill time. Did I say my large sink is heaping full?
My dad's birthday is on your dads b-day! I wish mine were still here to say Happy Day to him:) He has been gone along time...Celebrate your daddy!

I need to be the maid today but I have a headache - I wish there was a back up!

Looks like so much fun! I'm glad the blocks turned out and the kids had fun! :) You have a wonderful family!

So glad yall all had a great time! Wish we didn't have such a disfunctional family and maybe we would have had a little more fun instead of so much DRAMA. (I'm talking about the Sweetheart's family, not mine. They are as screwed up as a bucket of worms! Lord, please pray for them!)

We always have a blast when my family comes to town and I can't wait until they get here for Christmas!

ps: loved your pictures and the kitty kat :)

Yvonne said...

Looks like a great time was had by everyone. You were so productive.

What a great family.

Apples to Apples is one of our favorites--we always play whenever we're together.

Just tumbled on your blog by accident. Nice family pics!

Kimmie said...

BTW...I love the bottom photo of you where you commented you needed a haircut!!

What FUN you had with your family! I'm sure it was chaotic, but the JOY you had and memories you created are treasures!

Adorable kids crafts, GORGEOUS wreaths! I love the colors you chose. So Christmassy!

SO excited you got to spend time with your parents as well! Those are cherished times.

Looking forward to playing "Apples to Apples" as that is the game we got to put under the Christmas tree this year.

Thanks for your friendship!! Just love your Blog!
