So this year our Thanksgiving was going to be spent with just our family. With Joy & Max gone on a mission the rest of the family seemed to have other plans & my family were all going to my sister's house - with Jamey just getting back from a long road trip, he just wasn't up to ride an hour and a half there & back for dinner this year. So we opted to have dinner at home alone, just our family. It would have been a first & I was happy to make a new tradition with my family but sad at the thought that we wouldn't be spending a holiday with any extended family.... Until Dee Dee told me that her mom was not feeling well & they weren't going to have Thanksgiving dinner with her as planned. So we called up Dee Dee, David & their boys and invited them for Thanksgiving dinner with us. It was going to be a holiday with family after all!! It was such a nice time visiting with them, even though we live fairly close & see each other often... Although we don't really have time to chat, other than via email. I'm sorry Helen got sick, but I am happy that her family was able to spend Thanksgiving with us. Thanks guys for coming, it really meant a lot to me!!
This picture is not very good, but it is the only one we took. In fact it was taken on Jamey's phone since none of us had a camera handy. Sorry!!
Hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving with family or friends!

Needless to say, I'm not doing this alone again. You're on your own, Eric!!

Today is David's birthday. Happy Birthday David! I hope you are having a great day... hopefully all of your brothers remembered? I know you got a special phone call from a family of wonderful singers :o) I think we are similar to the Osmonds or something.... ha ha - hopefully that didn't ruin your day.
Next week is Jamey's birthday. Can you believe that Joy had them one year & a week apart? What was she thinking? I could hardly handle them two years apart... Regardless I am looking forward to spending his special day with him. Happy birthday baby!
Here's to another year of good times, health & happy memories!!
(Sorry there aren't any pictures, my computer is acting up & I have already had to re-write this post 3 times. If I get it fixed anytime soon I will add pictures later).

Here is Jason with Nate. It's time to buy Jason another scout shirt. This one barely buttons, but he's grown so much it won't tuck in!
Here is Kevin & Wyatt. That little boy cracks me up. He never stops talking, and is very inquisitive.
Unfortunatley, I only got a few pictures, but my brother-in-laws took pictures. Brien & Jody even took a video of the ceremony and sent that to Joy and Max since they're on a mission in Washington DC. I hope they don't mind me putting the link on here. They did an awesome job! Thanks, guys!!

For those of you wondering, I did vote today but that doesn't mean that I think it really matters.
What do you think?

Jamey & I had a night out alone.... first time I didn't take the boys out on Halloween. I guess they are growing up!!
Eric, Jason, Troy, their friends James & Kevin
David's pumpkin. So unusual for him-not scary at all!!
Eric & Noah went trick-or-treating together. They came home and munched out on candy for several hours. The older boys all went trick-or-treating, then to a friends' house and watched a movie. I got to pick them up shortly after midnight. I am sooooo tired today! I can't keep up with the life of teenagers, that's for sure!
