So Thanksgiving has come and gone and I feel like I need to post some of the things I am thankful for. First off my family, my mom and dad are amazing. As I watch the kids here at work it makes me appreciate them even more. They were always there for me and still are. Who knows were I would be without them they are definetly two of my very favorite people in the world. My mom is a great example, she helps me learn to have patience even when I am at whits end. She takes my kids when I have to work or just need a break. I hope to one day be just like her she is one of my best friends and definetly my best shopping partner. My dad is always doing something to help me all I have to do is ask, thanks dad. My husband is for sure the love of my life!! I appreciate the things he does for me and the kids. He works very hard so I can spend most of my time with Macee and Race. He is always right by my side when I am having trouble with something he is truely what I always wanted in a husband plus some. I love you Quentin. My children are some of my greatest blessings. They are the reason I wake up in the morning. I would do absolutely do anything for them. Those cute little faces can cheer anyone up for sure. I am very thankful for my friends listening to me complain when things get tough. I am thankful for the gospel in my life even though I am not active I still feel my Savior's love everyday. I have so many things to be thankful for I feel so blessed to be where I am in my life right now.

I need a day off!!!

So my kids are so amazing but I totally need a day off!! Yesterday I made dinner, cookies, did the laundry, went to the grocery store, picked up the house like 20 times, went to work, then went to work again to give them they're keys back (dumb me). I know it doesn't sound like much but for me that's a lot lately. I am struggling to keep myself going. I have been really tired I have been taking regular naps ugh!! I think alot of my problem is that my house is so full of shit (parden my french) that I am getting depressed!! I need like a huge dump truck (uncle gale this is you cue haha) to get everything out. I guess it could be worse!! If my cousins would get on the ball and have more kids I wouldn't have so much stuff......Courtney, Beckie. Erika and I have done our share. Come on get with the program.

Race is trying to walk (flat foot). His wonderful aunt Candace was helping him last night at her house he was doing so good. He can even get himself back up. Macee didn't walk til after her first birthday. She was born to be a ballerina so she walked on her toes and yes she still does. Oh I love my babies even when they are pushing my today!!

Thou shalt thank the lord thy god in all things D&C 59:7 Macee had a part in the primary program and she memorized it perfectly!! Good job Moo!!
The yummiest pumpkin pie ever it has honey in it!! My mother in-law Janna made it for me and I make it now in her memory. We miss you Grandma Janna!! (she passed away 3 months before Macee was born) She was so excited to have her first grandbaby.

Ohhhhhh scary
My girl

So I haven't been keeping you up to date very well I have been slacking off. Race has been sick the last few days hopefully that will be over soon!! We had a wonderful Halloween the kids loved it we visited Grandma Linda, Papa Chuck, Aunt Candace, Uncle Nick, And Quentins friend Archie and his girlfriend Tiff!! Macee had fun but I think she's glad Halloween is over it's a little too scary for her these days. Race is probably glad it's over so he doesn't have to wear that dog outfit anymore. It was so cute though!! Macee had a part in the primary program at church and she nailed it she did so good. Except for the faces she made while up on the stand. Silly woman!! Race had his first haircut but he hated the clippers so the sides are a little wild still. I was so sad after we did it because he looks so big now!! oh well it will grow back!! Yesterday I made a wonderful pie. The recipe was given to me by my mother in law Janna. It is by far my favorite pumpkin pie!! I will probably have some more posts this week if not by the first of next week for sure!!
