Not only did they make me the happiest mamma in the world with the news of my up coming name change they also announced that they are moving to Colorado.

She sent one too 3 to our other dear friends  and bought one for her self as well.
There was 5 of us couples that went out often when we liked in California together.
Ande is like a sister to me as well as the other 3 gals.

Benny boy was so excited last week when the school sent him home with an ID card.
He was so proud of it that he sleeps with it and it has a special place in his pocket along with his lucky rocks and race car.

Thankful day 3

Today I am thankful for date nights with my Husband.
Yesterday I spent all day with the kids playing and having fun on there Snow day.
I had not showered or gotten out of my Jammies yet the clock read 3:30 and I smelt bad and did not look so pretty.
Not wanting to look bad for my hubby I quickly took a shower got dressed  and did my hair and make up.
Dale walked in the door at 4 pm.

I walked out of the bedroom and he just smiled.
He said wow you look good.
I smiled back and said ya you want to take me out on a date.
He grinned and said ya baby.
So on a week day we went out and had the best time.
I love our weekly date nights
I love that after 23 years together that we are still in so in love.
I also love that when I walk in a room my hubby can still say WOW!

Last year for the moth of November I wrote every day what I was thankful for .
I think I will do it again this year too.
Yes I am a day late so I will do 2 today.
The first thing I am grateful for is my Children.
I have 9 amazing children.
My four beautiful daughters and my 5 amazing sons!
Yes I include my son inlaw as one of my children.
They all make me laugh and cry and get mad but in the end I love them all so much.

I have to sneak a pic of William in here too.
Since he is busy in heaven doing the Lords work and cant pop in to take a family pic just yet.
The second thing I am grateful for is my husband I love him so much.
It is so hard to believe we have been married for almost 22 years.
We still date every Friday night and he is always spoiling me.
I not only lucky that he is my husband I am lucky that hes my best friend.

I am looking forward to this season of Thanksgiving I plan on taking time each day to reflect on the things I am grateful for.

Creepy Halloween!

I was just not in the Halloween spirit this year for some reason or the other which is quite odd for me because I love Halloween.
I think all the changes this year has caught up with me a and I still 5 months behind or something like that.
I was a little sad too I love planning my kids costumes and they normally look smashing.
I made Madeline a rock star costume but that was it .
The other kids were on there own.
They did not do too bad.
I did learn my lesson never let Madeline get a hold of Halloween make up on her own.
I am not a fan of creepy costumes and have never let my kids dress creepy before.
I did how ever let Ben and Mylissa be zombies after all it was the # 1 Halloween  costume choice this year.
I guess Madie wanted to be a Zombie too instead she looks like Ozzie Osborn after he bit the head off a bat.
Next year I will be a better mom and be more involved and make all there costumes like in years past.
All and all it was a great Halloween!
