Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends. I am so thankful this year for many things. First and formost are my family and friends. May we always have good health. I am especially thankful for my two children and husband. If I didn't have them, well, life wouldn't be as interesting as it has been. I am so thankful that I decided to come along for the ride 12 years ago (and a few months).

May all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and if you are out shopping the day after, safe travels and not so long lines at the check out counter!!

With much love

WW III Has Hit!!

I guess this morning that I received a preview of what teen life will be like at our house. Girls did nothing but argue and fight about the bathroom and their space. Can't say that I remember this happening when my sister and I were at home. Lindsey has quite the set of lungs on her though. Hopefully I will be able to redirect that into singing instead of screaming at her sister.

Alyssa is doing great with her orthodontic appliances. Her speach has improved alot since last week. Hopefully this whole process will go well and we won't have anymore issues with space in her mouth.

Well, the hunters are all out this morning (husband, dad & brother-in-law) all trying to "bag" that big buck.

Work is as chaotic as ever and I am awating the Holidays with great anticipation.

Take care all,

We are now officially covered in the white stuff here up north. Can't believe we have snow already and I have not got the kids outfitted for winter totally yet. My days are extremely busy with work and kids activities and the hunting season is upon us now.

Daddy has not had much time to go out hunting, but he will be out there this weekend and has taken off a couple of days to go this next week. He did get something the other night though. We had an animal digging holes in our back yard all over the place and he decided that was enough. Needless to say, our back yard smelled like skunk and it did get a little smelly in the house. Luckily it is fading quickly.

Girls are doing quite well. Alyssa is going in for her spacers Monday in our start of "Phase 1". I am hearing that this could be a very expensive process in the next five years. Guess I need to look at the big picture though and she will have great teeth when this is all said and done.

Lindsey is still plugging away at school and learning every day. It amazes me what she has been picking up. The other day she asked me to spell out "Why are we having chicken?". Guess the kids don't like baked chicken that much. Must take after Grandpa L. He is trying to teach my 8 mo old nephew "argh, chicken". It's cute, though.

Take care everyone!
