I hope everyone enjoyed their thanksgiving! We just got together with all our family and ate tons of good food and played turkey bingo. Here are just a couple pictures from that day.

It has been a crazy couple of months, the hardest of our marriage. losing molly, getting in a car wreck and bunch of other things that I don't want to get into. i guess things were going too easy so something had to happen right?

Last night me and Nathan stayed up until 3:00 in the morning just talking. It was one of those nights where you just can't go to sleep because you can't stop talking. It just reminded me that those are the little things to live for. Hard times come but they also pass. There are so many tender mercies there in the mix if you CHOOSE to see them. So I guess this Thanksgiving I am thankful for those little things that give me a breath of fresh air during difficult times.

breaking dawn

last thursday night we went to the midnight showing of breaking dawn. a bunch of girls from church were with us and then we met up with our good friend lincoln and his girlfriend (he loves twilight more than any of us). we got there at 7:00 to stand in line and it actually went by really really fast. It was a lot of fun just all of us hanging out. We will be going again to see it tomorrow so we can take Grams.

missed these kiddos

my brother recently moved to arizona and we miss their family so much. he came in town this week and brought anson and ashlie and i snagged them for the weekend. good thing was they remembered me and ran and gave me the biggest hug and immediately said, "where's nathan?" they wanted to see him so bad.

cute story--when we would babysit, nathan and ashlie had this little joke where nathan would tell ashlie "your funny" then ashlie would say, "no your funny" and they would go back and forth. i totally forgot about it. right when ashlie saw nathan she said, "your funny nathan" and has said it so many times. i was so shocked she remembered.

RIP rhonda the honda

on monday i got in a car wreck. it could not have been more of a bad timing. but it could of been worse and i was lucky that the guy swerved and missed my door. our car ended up being totaled and we had to buy a new one. i really wanted to shed a tear when i said goodbye to my honda. is that weird? so many good memories in this car.

welcome home seth!

last friday one of our best friends from high school came home from the navy. seth is only here for 11 days so we are trying to soak up time with him as much as we can. as you can see they were way happy to see each other. he will be leaving and being stationed in san diego so hopefully that will give us an excuse to go visit.
