Testing "Texting"

Testing - I have never created a blog post via text message. This could be a great way to save those little things that I want to remember to share with friends or save for posterity. We'll see how it goes!

I don't really have anything special to share other than simply to thank God for simple pleasures (in no particular order), such as:

-a week off
-video games that I usually would not take the time to play unless I had a week off
-great books that I might not read unless I had a week off
-a warm fireplace
-pizza, mochas, and other tasty foods
-my fabulous family

All of these pleasures made possible by my loving heavenly Father who gives all good things.

'ts good.

Brian's brother Jason and his wife Amy came over tonight. We did a photo shoot tonight with the 4 cousins - Emma, Rachel, Alec, and Brooklyn.

There are several posted, but these were the best and funnest pictures!!

Life is good.

I'm dreaming of a white...Thanksgiving?

Yes, that's right. Thanksgiving was white this year. The entire week of Thanksgiving. The kids were on an early release schedule for school conferences already, so on Monday when a 2-hour delay was called by the school district, I called it a snow day. Then Tuesday and Wednesday were also canceled, so we had the entire week off. Brian even had Tuesday off since his work was canceled that day because of the snow.

Thursday was great, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving at Brian's aunt and uncle's house, and all his family was there on his mom's side - it was a great time of food and conversation, and all the kids played great together.

Some pictures of our snow during the week and our festivities.

Friday we got the tree up and decorated

Saturday was spent hanging out in the family room about like this. Super great day.
All in all, the best Thanksgiving week *ever* in my opinion.

God is good.
