Mom & Dads Nite Out

While we were in KC, Brian and I took the opportunity to go out on a date! He took me to the Melting Pot on the Plaza, and as usual we ate too much :) I love date nights with him!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day just like we did! We went up to Olathe and enjoyed a nice relaxing week with my family. Me and mom did a ton of shopping, ate too much pumpkin pie and all while everyone was trying to beat the cold that was going around. Once again, I didn't get many pics on Thursday since I was enjoying the company so much :)

Hidden Talents

So, my child is gifted! LOL...at least he is to me :) The other day while hanging around the house, he goes into the silverware drawer and pulls out a spoon. Brian and I both ask what he wants, and he proceeds to hang it off of his nose. Don't ask me where he picked it up from, but he has a new talent! (Brian and I both have SWORN that it was neither one of us). I like to think he's just that creative!

Bribery is My Friend :)

So, last week I bribed the kids with Incredible Pizza if we had a good week. Brian took off to work the Phoenix race on Tuesday and didn't get back until about 30 minutes ago. I probably would have taken them anyways, so I figured it wouldn't hurt anything if I tried to get something out of the deal also! LOL Anywho, we had a great week, so off to Incredible Pizza we went, and Veronica and her friend Kori went with us. Jolee is obsessed with laser tag there, so she did that quite a bit. However, the only time that I tried to play with her, she and I collided 1 minute in, and she ended up with a fat lip :( I felt horrible! She got back to it though after some ice :) Brady had a blast also! Wonderful Saturday :)

Crafty Sunday

Today, the kids and I spent our Sunday being extremely lazy...and it felt so good! After the crazy week we had, I was really looking forward to today. But in the midst of all the laziness, Jolee decided that she wanted to sew! So, we got out some fabric, and it was so sweet what she decided to make...a Thomas pillow for Brady! So sweet!

Jolee and the wonderfully made pillow

He was very happy with it :)

I can't tell you all how sad I am that Halloween is over! It's probably one of my favs now that I've got the kiddos. Last friday, after the school parties, the kids and I got the casa ready for our fiesta! Jolee had several of her friends over and we ate lots of goodies and played lots of games. I think I've decided that this will be a yearly tradition in our house :)
