what's new over here?

Hi there,

Hope you are well. :)

We are just waiting for the big "turkey" day over here :) We are going to my parents for the occasion and the kids especially, just can't wait! Their teenage girls have a real fun time planned, so we are all looking forward to it. I plan to have someone take a nice family picture, so we can give those out this year (I'm usually so NOT on top of this...)
Anyhow, I will try to share that on here...if that all pans out.

Otherwise, we are just doing the same ole thing here. The kids have the week off. Parent/teacher conferences were yesterday and we got a great report on both kids, so happy, happy! :) Today we are just hanging out til Macy's ear tube consult this afternoon. Ky and Brooklyn both have a playdate later during the appointment, so they are looking forward to that! Mia gets to come with me! :) yay for her! ..(and me :)

So that's what's up with us..I know I always enjoy reading an update, so I figured you may too?

Have a happy week and enjoy good eats!

Hey there


I am not even sure what i am going to post about.. but I thought I better say hi, so no one worries about me :)

We are doing well, just keeping busy with "the life" :)
Today Me and the girls visited the library..got some more books and books on cd for the van and some dvds...with a 7 day vacation from school coming up soon here, I best be prepared :)

I am super into wearing my apron and chopping up lots of veggies for my crock pot soup (lentils, split peas, potato you name it, soups) My hubby loves it, my kids...? not so much ;)

Otherwise, not so much else is new....I am trying to think of good ideas of things to keep everyone happy during the week off, but hmm...? maybe the farm to pet animals and play, but it is pretty chilly out and Macy has a pretty bad cold already,(but then again, she is on antibiotics for her ears....again, so by then maybe she can handle it;)

Anyhow, I have nothing exciting to talk about, but we are doing pretty good. DH stayed home yesterday, cuz his back was so bad, so that was sad for him, but nice for us to see him...I feel I am fighting something too...I feel kind of achy..SP? So, I am taking vit. c and staying warm and hoping to sleep more now that macy has meds for her ear infection.

K, I am so totally rambling, but hope you are well.

I get to choose

... my mood :)

So I choose to be happy today.

I am lighting pumpkin spice candles. . brewing some coffee in my new coffeemaker and starting a crockpot of lentil soup, (my husband will thank me for the soup, guessing not the kids, but who cares, I can still be happy! :)

Anyhow, that's me today. Choosing to love my life. choosing to make it good for my family and choosing to BE happy! :)

Hope you are well.
