Nathan and Courtney......and Emily photo bombing.
Some of the pictures of Thanksgiving day.
These are the leftover mashed potatoes.  I was told that there needed to be lots of leftovers of these!!  :)
Darrell and Dyann came and enjoyed the meal with us.  It was great seeing them!
Emily made her first apple pie the day before.  She did a great job!

I have been really, really bad at writing here. Days, weeks go by so fast. But here is a little bit of an update. A couple of weeks ago Emily asked a friend to Preference.  She did the whole cantaloup thing.......if we cantaloup will you go to preference with me.  A week later she got her answer.  It's been a lot of fun!!!  Then a couple of days ago Emily and her friends Izzy and Kara (and the moms) went and had the girls try on prom dresses to rent.  Emily found a purple one she's going to wear.  It looks beautiful on her.  So that's the whole Preference thing so far.  It's on Dec. 14 and I will be making dinner for them.
Emily is over her bronchitis but now Jaron, Maddox and Asher are sick.  Hoping they get better super fast.  Steve, Emily and I have been studying the scriptures every night.  It's been fun diving into some of the deeper meaning of them.  I love spirituality but religion confuses me sometimes. : /  Slowly getting ready for Thanksgiving.  We're going to have a house fun and I'm glad!!!!!

Dance from June

Here is one of the dances from Emily's last recital in June.  It's kinda hard to see her but you can get glimpses of her.  I'm going to try and get a couple of more dances up later.

Oct. coupons

For October I saved $108.90 in coupons.  The last 2 weeks Emily has been sick.  Yesterday we thought she was just about over the bronchitis when later that day she came down with a bad cold.  I did too.  We are ready for everyone to be healthy!!  She also got a fish from her friends to help her get better.  The top picture is Nathan.  He's such a goofball!!!!!  :)
 And a couple of more pictures of the grandkids.  I love Darci and Kingston's halloween costumes!!  I went around our neighborhood with Christopher, Lesa, Maddox and Asher.  They had a blast going around getting candy.  Our neighborhood is great to trick or treat at.  People give out hot chocolate, hot dogs and donuts.......pretty fun!!!!
