Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving (those that celebrate, anyway.)

We had a wonderful day. The Grandparents came and there was enough food to feed a small village I think. We ate from the time we got up until about 5:30 in the afternoon. But it was all so good!!

Aunt 'Manda also came and the girls all got their hair done....

Here's Kirsten's new haircut:

and then we all got our eyebrows waxed. She's so nice to try to keep us all beautiful!!

It was a really great day and a good time was had by all. I just love Thanksgiving and having the family together. It's may favorite holiday.

Oh, and as always, I'm thankful to be married to a stud like Dax! LOL

Hope you all had a pleasant day with those that you love.

I can't believe that my babies have turned 13!!

Where have the years gone?

And how can we suddenly have a house full of teenagers?

They got money for their birthday so we spent the day out shopping yesterday.

Well, the girls and I shopped. Dax and Wyatt mostly waited around on us.

The girls hit all kinds of stores and 'You're Welcome' to Bath & Body Works.......yesterday's sales numbers should be way up after Addison's visit.

After all of the shopping we went out to eat, then hit one last store, and headed home.

I think they all had a great day. After we got home, the girls tried on their new clothes and then painted their nails with the new stuff they bought. Once the adrenalin wore off, they crashed and were in bed before 9:30.

Wyatt used his money to buy and Xbox so I don't know how late he stayed up playing, but he was all smiles.

Me. I just can't believe that they are already thirteen and how fast these years have gone. Wow!

And then there was one....

Last week Addison got braces.

That only leaves Abigail without them.

Baseball fever

Dax and Wyatt watched the World Series together.

Now, I think Wyatt's got baseball fever.

He's been talking about trying out for the team at school.

And since the weather has been so beautiful here, he's been talking his Dad (and his sisters too) into doing this every chance he gets.

Here's an action shot.....

The pictures would probably be better if I didn't have to hide to take them.  Every time I pick up my camera, they all stop what they're doing.

Wonder why?

Wordless Wednesday (Bed Hog)

Coffee anyone?

My children seem to have found a new obsession. I hope they move through this one quickly.

It all started because my coffee pot died. Well, it wasn't officially dead, but taking at least an hour and a half to make a pot of coffee gets it close enough to death for me to pronounce it dead.

So, when my Mom asked what 'we' would like for our anniversary I told her that I would love a Keurig coffee maker but that I didn't know what the other half of 'we' wanted. And, since he didn't contribute to the conversation (although he wasn't even a part of it) then I won by default. Hahaha!

Anyway, my parents gave us the Keurig along with about 100 coffee packs for it. When I finally got around to setting the whole thing up this past weekend, the kids went nuts over it.

That's Abigail and Wyatt sitting on the porch on Sunday morning. Apparently they are avid coffee fans.

Who knew?

I can't believe they were even able to sleep at all this weekend. I think that on Sunday alone they each had about four cups of coffee and maybe a couple of hot chocolates thrown in for good measure.

I have to get up before they do so I can even have a cup of coffee myself. And I think every coffee cup in my house is dirty at the moment, because apparently you can't drink two cups of coffee from the same cup.
