Blogger reunion

OK- so i have gotten several people that want to do a get together. i thought what would be more appropriate that a blogger/blog stalker reunion! So all who live in AZ and all who are coming to AZ leave a comment on when you will be here or when you are available. i was thinking after christmas would be best. I was also thinking what better place can i think of than the standard oldschool hang out of old reliable applebees on gilbert and baseline for fries and milkshakes!!!!!!!!!!!! No we can do something else. that place just screams MHS!

I have deemed myself the coordinator because i have nothing to do in my pathetic life. So pass the word from blog to blog. YEAH!

Reminiscing

We were decorating the outside of the house today. we put up lights and a tree on the front porch it made me remember all the great christmas' we've had. i was doing a photo project for brian and ran across these and thought i'd walk down memory lane with you all!

This was 2 years ago in WA. We went to a man's property and cut down this huge 8 ft tree for $40!!! We had so much fun. one of my favorite memories.



This was the girls 2 years ago. Man time has flown and you can really tell when you look at photos. It's tough doing christmas without brian but the girls excitement makes we want to pull out all the stops. i will post pictures of the front of the house because it rocks! my aunt did the garland around the door today and it's fab!

New Dresses

So I realized it's been a while since I posted a note. Brian has been moving to a new place and hasn't had the chance to check the site so I have been lazy about updates. Not that I don't love all the rest of you!!!

The girls got new dresses for the holidays. Abbeys favorite part are the sparkly red shoes she's wanted for a really long time and the sparkly headband that matches the shoes. Kassidy was excited for the wedge sandals she has always wanted. I am a sucker during the holidays especially when Brian is gone!


Trying them on the minute we got home


After church

With the holidays here. These 2 are what I am so thankful for. If I didn't have these angels a 17 month deployment would be impossible. Thanks girls.

My Newest Life-saver

So I am feeling like I should share with the world my recent find. As I have told people it turns out that most use this, but me! I have seen it forever, but my cheap little self told me it didn't matter. So I bought it recently just to see. I cannot tell you how amazing it is. I am so dorky that I even did comparison tests (yes, being lonely has some bad side affects!!). It's great. I cannot say enough about it. I am declaring my love to the world about clorox 2!!! This is for those 2 people that may be left on the planet that do not use it because no one told me. I'm just looking out for you!!

I am a dork I know, but I have a thing for really clean laundry.

Another record breaker

So I've noticed that everytime we move somewhere there is always a weather related record breaker. In Washington we broke one for rain and now we are here. We have broken a couple records with heat, but todays just iced the cake for me. We set another record, I think it's the third this week! We hit 94 degrees today- this is November remember?! The record was held at 93 degrees set in 1934! Why do people live here? They say it's for the great winter, well guess what it's getting there and we are breaking records with HEAT! Brian I know what you're thinking, but it's hot to me!!!

That's all that's my rant for the day. PS- I changed the blog so all can leave comments. you no longer have to have a blogger account. (that one's for you Joelyn-love ya)

Just Treats please, no tricks

The girls were so excited this year to get out and trick or treat


Daphne (from Scooby-doo_

Belle. "We can only eat a little candy so we don't get sick, right mom?"


Kassidy and her friend

We had a super night of fun. We went for 1 1/2 hours of fun. The girls didn't want to stop. I think we were one of the last ones out in the neighborhood. Too much fun.

We have enought candy to last until Christmas

Happy Halloween

My sister-in-law sent this and it made me laugh. So enjoy the halloween spirit and cackle. I will post trick-or-treat soon.
