...I love snow!

And I love buying new tights!! Purple diamond style. So gorgeous! All my fellow church-goers will see them tomorrow!

And I've decided to now buy EVERYTHING from Ross. Clothes, kitchen stuff, home decor, shoes. They have everything! And it's extra cheap.

Check this out!

I thought people might like to know about this. I went yesterday and got a few things myself. I hope it's a semi annual thing, so I can go again soon!

Also, if you're looking for cheap cereal, smith's (today only!) Kellogs is 50% off. And if you have coupons, like I did, it'll be even cheaper. I got 7 boxes for $6.85. So I'm happy

Thanksgiving Weekend

This year, for the first time since we've been married, we went to my parents for Thanksgiving. A bunch of siblings were there. Liz and her family (Rod, Zach, Marinda, Michael, Matthew, Paul, and little Eve in Liz's tummy), Joe, Sara and her family (Jason, Jalen, Christian, and Seth), Beka and Nathan, Me, Derek, and Jonah. Of course, we ate lots of good food. I made cheesecake. Pumpkin and marble. So yummy. This was one of my treat weekends. I got three big dinners! Thanksgiving at my parents thursday, dinner at Anne and Richard's (Sara's in-laws), Pork loin roast, the next night, and turkey at my mom's again saturday.

We got in wednesday evening and Sara, Jason, and I went to the 10 PM showing of new moon. So funny! But not intentionally. Check this out, you will laugh

And now a few pictures.
Jonah was so happy to be out of the car that he
didn't go to bed until very late that night.

I just like his expression in this picture

Seth playing on a drum with his daddy


Beka's old friend from high school, Melissa,
came and visited with her little girl McKenna.
I do't know how many concerts we went to with her!

Had a visit with Heather's mom, Sis. Rickords

Sleeping in the backseat. The sun was in their faces.
Hence the blanket and pillow

Beka and Nathan were so nice and awesome to keep
Jonah entertained on the way up and back

I got to visit with some people I haven't seen in a long time. Chris's mom made Jonah a beautiful baby blanket and did it in a short period of time, because she only knew about Jonah a few days before that! They loved him!

All in all it was a very good weekend. Full of laughing and fun
