Thanksgiving.... a little different

This year I have been a little overwhelmed and tired... imagine that a pregnant girl tired :) Anyways I saw in a magazine how a couple of restaurants have a thanksgiving burger so I thought hey why not. So for Thanksgiving we had turkey burgers, with cranberry sauce, stuffing on our burger and fries. YUM it was good, didn't feel like thanksgiving, but they did taste good. I am thankful for my blessings. I know I have been given many many many of them. Here are just a few of them

The Forgotten Carols

Papa Joe had bought tickets for the Forgotten Carols on Brian's birthday. Unfortunately the other couple that was intended for wasn't able to make it so Brian and I got to tag along. Despite searching for 45 mins to find where the heck we were supposed to go and pouring rain we had a good time. I had never seen or really heard the Forgotten Carols so it was fun to see. I'm sure everyone thought I was an emotional mess as I ended the night in tears. One of my favorite Michael Mclean songs is "We can be Together Forever". Well he ended the evening singing that song several times and having the audience sing with him. Well- long story short "Together Forever" was a favorite song that Sharon, Danielle's and I shared. It brought alot of emotions for me and how I am glad that with our knowledge of the Gospel I know that we can be together forever.

Happy Birthday Brian!

Yes, yes, if you can't tell things have been a little crazy and B's birthday was nothing less.... Unfortunately it seemed like everything that could go wrong- did so needless to say it's Dec 15th and he still hasn't gotten a birthday cake :( I know I'm a horrible wife, the shirts I got him were the wrong size and he had to make his own dinner.... oh well maybe 32 will be better. We do love him though and are thankful for all he does for us. Happy 31 babe!

Sad day

The week of Thanksgiving we found out that Cleo (Brian's parent's English Bull Dog) and Tank (Our Boxer) had a "Barry White- Let's get it on..." moment that wasn't stopped as soon as we had hoped. After x-rays it was confirmed that Cleo was having puppies and not just getting fat. As a side note- did you know dogs only have a 9 week gestation period I think we should get that too... After a week of ups and downs Bulldogs have to have c-sections she went into the Vet. She had 10 puppies! Yikes ok so maybe I'll take the 1 baby and 9 months vs 10 puppies and 9 weeks... anyways unfortunately she lost one invetro. The Dr got the rest out and one by one they all stopped breathing. They think that because there were so many of them there wasn't enough room for them to grow properly.... I was mentally prepared to loose 2-3 but thought there would still 3-4 that would survive. I was ok until Brian described them to me, with lots of Tank in them.... I'll be honest that a part of me was relieved as we were not prepared for 10 pups, but sad. It has given T and I many interesting conversations about Heaven. It's amazing to me how much he does understand.

It's a..

against everything we thought it's a boy and he sure is proud of it. My due date is the 18th however since I'll have a c-section he'll probably be here a week earlier. We're excited although stumped on names- I don't know why I had several before we even got married but now my mind is a blank. T is excited to be a big brother although I think his world is going to be turned upside down...

Viva Las Vegas

Early in Nov we headed down to LV for a quick quick trip. We were able to see most of Brian's family and have a Pre-thanksgiving dinner. We had fun staying at Brittney and Derek's house. T man had lots of fun riding bikes and scooters with his cousins Avery and Kaeden. Brian and I had fun helping Britt with pies, rolls, potatoes, and ham. T also loved all the new babies to love over.... I think he'll do just fine as a new brother in April

A little late.... but Happy Halloween

Argg... Pirates we are
We had fun at the ward Trunk or Treat- T loved getting all that yummmy yummy candy. I love my "Mom Tax". We didn't go out on Sunday, but T had just as much fun handing out candy. I had planned on taking him out if he asked, but he never said anything about going out to the neighbors. Happy Halloween argg
