I am very slow about getting things done. But here goes anyways. Our family had a great Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a night of moving my parents Hugh piano; that they brought up for me, into the house Wednesday night. VERY HEAVY :( We did get a lot of help from friends and family. Thank You very much. The kids love the piano and for two days that is all they did.
Thursday we where able to have Thanksgiving dinner together at my brothers house. It was a very nice dinner. The kids got to play and had fun. We also had to go to David's families house for dinner. At least Randy's dinner was a lunch and David's family was late for dinner. Lots of food and not enough time to eat. The kids always have lots of fun to play with cousins.
Then Friday morning we got up around 7:00 (that is the earliest we will every get up) and got the kids ready and started out to enjoy Black Friday. We had lots of fun. We didn't go out for anything that we needed but we did find some good deals. We got the kids good winter jackets. And David got his ladder that he has won't for five years. Buying a ladder just gave him more things to do around the house. So if that is what he wanted. :)
Then Friday night we were able to go out with my parents for dinner (no kids). When we got home David watched the Jazz game and Ethan played with a balloon. He rolled around with it with my dad. He loved it. It is always lots of fun when family comes up to visit.

Ok so I have been lost in my own little world. I borrowed a book (Twilight) from my friend Julie, just interested in what the excitement was about. So I started to read and now a week later I know why they love it. I have not read like that since...never. I couldn't believe they were really that good. I have not been up to anything else so I am just going to post some pictures.

Ethan is the funnest kid. He loves nights when dinner is done and he knows there is something else to do. Take a bath. As all the other kids have to shower before bed. When that water turns on he is the first to hear and come running. He will stay in that bathroom til the water has turned off and the other kids are in there bed asleep. My other children liked baths but I don't remember them wanting a bath all the time, and everyday. He is a fish out of water. When in doubt about fussy just turn the water on for a bath and he is all smiles. Very cute and easy to make happy.

Friday we planned flowers and tried to help with the funeral. Thanks to Michelle who had her head on straight and got things done. The viewing was Sunday night and the funeral was Monday morning. So when family got here Friday night we spent time just visiting with grandma and grandpa at my aunts house. Then Saturday was a day of figuring out what was what and last minute things for the funeral. There is a lot of work that goes into taking care of the house and everything that is left over from my grandparents life. Lots of memories. My grandfather was a man that kept everything. He lived a life to be very pride of. To have learned just one thing from his life is a lot to be able to pass on. My children loved to go visit him up at his house. We will all miss him. He is probably not missing us since now he is with his wife and son. What a wonderful reunion they have had.:)Thank you Grandpa for getting us all together to enjoy this weekend together as family. We love you and hope you are running and golfing with grandma and Jim. So after that we tried to get back to life for our children. The Monday before Halloween we carve pumpkins. So we went to get pumpkins. The cousins came over with their pumpkins and we sat around and carved pumpkins. We do this tradition for the children so THEY can have fun carving their pumpkins but as you can see in the picture I think the kids had lots of fun. Andrew did do a great job on his pumpkin this year. Thank you Trent, Tyler, and Kara for coming over and carving pumpkins.
One more side note... LOOK at what Andrew can do. Something new. He loves it. Good job Andrew.
Well that is it. My busy weekend. I had so much to say that sometimes it doesn't come out alright so if it sounds funny just blame it on my grandpa's passing and I am not all together. Thanks for reading.
