Memories!! Please post one!

Here's what you do:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Well, it seems November came quick this year and then before I know it it will be December and Christmas! I can't believe how fast time has gone lately.

This weekend our family is going to Trolley Square for the 100 year old anniversary. The Old Spaghetti Factory is having a special all day that has dinners with 6 items (salad, bread and pasta with spumoni ice cream) for $3.00 a person. Kids dinners of spaghetti is only $1.95 so we're going to take advantage for lunch that day. They have many other exciting activities going on to celebrate the history of the place. Even fireworks at 8:00pm! You should check it out! I think it would be worth it.

Our Primary program is Sunday and I'm so excited for my children to participate in their first one! Our ward let Jaidyn come up into Sunbeams 6 months early due to his getting bored and has really fit in well and loves coming to primary instead of nursery. His birthday is at the end of January so he was 3 a long time ago. So, I have 3 kids in sunbeams and it's really fun. Hannah will move up into the next class and Jaidyn and Shaylee will stay back to learn more of the basics.

I found this really cool blog on another friend's blog and I want to post it here... If you have girls you'll love this one. It shows really cool ways to do their hair! She makes it really easy to follow. I've had fun doing my girls hair and they love it too.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Monday Blues

I'm not too excited it's Monday, but we did have a great weekend. We were invited to be in a group that once a month eats food from different countries. There are 4 different couples and we get to try French food. I chose the appetizer and drinks and I'm thinking of doing something called Gougeres or cheese puffs. They look really good, but I"m having a hard time thinking of a French drink... Since we don't drink wine I wanted to think of something creative besides "fancy" grape juice. Do any of you readers have any ideas? Please leave me a comment!

Recently I've come into contact with a family I got to know almost 13 years ago and I'm so grateful that they found me as well as being able to keep tabs on each other after all this time. I love the parents as well as the children and am so grateful for them being apart of my life.

It's been raining a lot and now we're looking at some snow!! I don't know if I'm completely ready for that, but we'll see shortly right? My kids are way too excited for the snow and can't wait to build another snowman or snow woman like this one we did last year.
Here's to changing weather and upcoming holidays! I'm excited for Thanksgiving and all the yummy food!
