Reasons to be Thankful

There are so many things that I have to be thankful for this year. I feel like year adter year I am getting more and more blessed with great things in my life. I have a wonderful husband, a supportive family, a fantastic job, a car that runs, and a nice house.
This thanksgiving Brett and I had the privelge of going to Leavenworth to spend time with his parents. It was so GREAT to see them and just to be back in Leavenworth. We had a couple of very relaxing days and ate a lot of yummy food. Of course we went out for the Black Friday sales and had a ton of fun shopping. One of my favorite parts though was that my wonderful husband took me to see New Moon. Even though he was hating it the whole time, it was so sweet of him to take me. Although, I don't know if we will go to another movie any time soon. It was probably the most expensive date we have ever been on. I didn't know it cost $10 just to get in! My goodness. Anyway, the trip was awesome but it is good to be home.

What a cute couple!

Finally, some new pictures

I have been wanting to take fall family pictures for quite a while. But with this every other week schedule with the girls, it got pretty hard to find the time. But tonight we were able to go to Coeur d' Alene to see my family for an early Thanksgiving dinner. My mom took our pictures at Tubb's Hill. These are just a couple shots. She took a lot more great ones. But the girls were GREAT about it the whole time which made me very happy. Even though I didn't get the pretty fall leaves in the pictures, they still turned out pretty good. After the photo session, we got to go to my aunts house for some yummy thanksgiving dinner. It was so good to just be around family. I love my family so much and am so grateful for them.

I have been thinking lately about thanks and Brett and I have been talking about it a lot. We reazlied that when we find something to be thankful for in ALL things, we are much happier people. It is such an easy thing to do, and probably something we forget to do too often. I have so many things in my life to be grateful for, way to many to list. But to start I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ, for my husband, for how great the girls can be, for my job, and that my car is still running!

Suprise, Suprise!

Well, I wanted to wait until I was far enough along, but now I think it is safe to announce it. Brett and I are expecting. We are both extremely excited, but I am probably a litte more nervous than he is. Besides being completely exhausted all the time, I am feeling pretty good. I should be due around June 16 (one week after school gets out). Let's see if I can make it the whole school year. Anyway, yay for us!!!

I'm Still Here

I feel like I haven't even looked on my blog for a month. I'm sorry I turned into such a bad blogger. Life has gotten way too crazy with work, church, and the girls' sports. Brett and I literally do not have one free night of the week. So this is what my life has been like lately.
Monday: Basketball games for both girls
Tuesday: Basketball practice for both girls
Wednesday: Picking girls up to bring to mutual and bringing them back home.
Thursday: We have the girls staying over this night. This is our one night we get to stay at home.
Friday: Basketball practice for both the girls
Saturday: Basketball games for Kyra.
So, holy moly I just need a break. It was nice today to have a day off (Veteran's Day).
But anyway, I will try to do better from now on.
