Naughty! But cute...but Naughty!

Look who decided to cut her hair AGAIN! This is after Mommy fixed it.

I felt like I was taking mug shot photos. And I might as well have been because she's in trouble! And naughty!

But cute!

Gobble Gobble!

I hope all our family and friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving! There's just something about celebrating this day of thanks with family and friends, enjoying good food and good times with the ones you love.
We spent our Thanksgiving Day with Robert's family. The kids are always thrilled to see their cousins! While the adults were busy cleaning up after dinner the grandchildren were busy loving Grandpa George!

As if getting together as a family wasn't fun enough, we had the added bonus of enjoying this....

Yes, my friends, Robert grew a moustache. Why you ask? Well, the plan was to grow the moustache to mock his older brother, Sean but I think most of the mockery landed on himself! And no, it doesn't tickle when he kisses me with it because I refuse to kiss him with it!

So we've established that I, his wife did not care for the moustache, however my children were quite impressed with it, so much so they wanted their own.

For the record, it's chocolate frosting!
On Sunday night we celebrated Thanksgiving again with my family. More food and fun for us! My favorite part was these chubby Noah legs! I love this boy!

I love the whole bunch of them, in fact! My parents now have 8 grandchildren including my 3. It's so much fun to get them all together! After dinner we made turkey cupcakes, not cupcakes with turkey in them (that would be gross)but cupcakes that looked like turkeys. They were cute and yummy.

And we can't have a family get together without games. This time the game was Spoons. Val lost. But not without injuring people first!

Mom! I just want my old hair back!

We had to cut off a whole lot to get rid of the black but he's a happy man cub!

First Snowmen of the Season!

So we haven't got a lot of snow but I'm not complaining! Look how cute and small they are!

November weather

I love fall! I love the beautiful changing leaves. But when you have three large trees in your yard the leaves get a little old, specifically the raking of the leaves.
Ok, there is an upside to the raking....

Eleven big black garbage bags later and our yard was ready for winter! None too soon either because now we have snow!

And snow angels!

Scary and Cute!

We had so much fun on our vacation! But I must admit it was nice to get back to these three monkeys! We kind of like having them around!
We got home the day before Halloween so I spent Saturday running around buying candy and last minute costume accessories that they just had to have!
We had a lot of fun! Who wouldn't enjoy spending Halloween with a vampire, a zombie cowboy and Tinkerbell?

Isaac talked me into being a zombie with him!

We got home and the kids proceeded to hide their candy so I wouldn't eat it! Who me? Never!

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas!

I'm back with Vegas pics! After our awesome cruise we thought it would be fun to spend a night in Las Vegas and being the royal couple that we are we just had to stay at the Excalibur.

This was our boring room.

But this was the view from our room. Oh yeah!

Come on Jackpot!

Come on Sponge Bob!

For dinner we went to the "Tournament of the Kings" show. We had so much fun! We weren't allowed to take photos and Robert wouldn't let me break the rules and do it anyway! But, basically what it is is a jousting dinner show filled with horses, kings that joust,a wizard, dancing peasant girls, acrobats and a dragon! And you get to eat a "medieval meal" with your hands! The crowd is encouraged to cheer for their assigned king, or in our case, the dragon! We lost our voices from screaming, cheering and booing! It was so much fun!

We were exhausted after the show and bed sounded really good, but hey we were in Las Vegas! We had to go out on the town! We went to the Bellagio to watch the beautiful fountain show.

And of course no trip to Vegas is complete without a picture with Elvis, or Elvises, Elvi?
