First Snow

First snow of the holiday season, though at this time you can't tell, so Gavin is outside trying to catch snowflakes in his hand.

So snow on Thanksgiving!
So after calling families, eating Thanksgiving lunch, chilling at home. We all went to see the movie "Twilight". It was good, I really enjoyed reading series. So we came home and chilled and found it snowing!!!!!!!

Gavin playing in the first snow, and his home-made snow angel!
After pelting Mom and the house with numerous snow balls we finally got Dad to come out and play!

So we are sending our wishes of snow to our family in Florida!!! Best of luck getting snow!!!!

What a Month!!!

Don't quite know where to start but:
First a two very good friends of mine lost their special friend. That is absolutely tragic, so close to the holiday season. So it makes me want to remind all of you that you are special and I love you very much! Time is so short that we should be greatful for every little thing!

Next my eye! I thought I scratched it, then I thought I had pink eye and confirmed by MD. Then still didn't get better so went to eye dr and no it is not pink eye and definately not contagious!! But hourly eye drops are killing me. Luckily my eye doesn't hurt anymore!

Thanksgiving is only 3 days away-- where did the month go? I don't think I even got 2 decorations up. But that means-- I can decorate for Christmas in 4 days!!!
I was just realizing that I haven't started a Christmas letter or cards and I usually save that for Thanksgiving evening to start them. I really wanted to send a picture card this year. But we apparently can't appear anywhere as a family for pictures. Went to a wedding and never got a picture of the three of us at all! Don't even think that we got a family picture Trick-or-Treating when we dressed up as a family!

Last but not least. I just realize that I hate hackers! I play an online game with friends and family and I played a little last night and woke today to find out that my character and guild had been robbed of all my stuff: gear, money. I know pretty petty of me-- but still what a bunch of jerks-- ruining someone else's gaming fun! I am pretty angry and hope the the game masters will be able to help with it.

Hope you all have a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving and it is spent with loved ones!

See what did I tell you....

Apparently Blogspot and I are not working together very well, if you can't tell from my last post.
Let's see-- news-
Gavin was excited to vote and was very happy that his guy he voted for won.
Let's hope he can do a good job and that is all I am going to say about that.

At work lately, I have been getting to spend a lot of quality time at home and getting called off a lot as there are a large number of staff and need for large number of nurses is very small. To say it nicely.

This weekend is our Anniversary-- I am suppose to work Saturday-- but may easily get the day off to celebrate-- we shall see if not we will celebrate on Sunday. Guess I will leave plans up to Rob!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I just wanted to say that I am very thankful for my family, friends, my health and the health of my family. I have been trying out the thought of using a gratitude journal-- since I haven't been so good at keeping up a diary or even a scrapbook so who knows.

Happy Thanksgiving season one and all!!!

PS I can't wait to start playing Christmas music!!!!

Halloween Night at Elitch Gardens Denver

Halloween night spent at Elitch Gardens in Denver.

and then they are gone.

Gavin's rides and other creatures haunting the night. Sorry took so long-- but page gave me grief editing and cutting/pasting it. So I gave up for a while and finally-- well here it is!

We did a little OK a lot of something different for Halloween this year. So the boys removed the decorations from the yard while I slept after work. When I woke, we dressed in our costumes and went up to Denver with some friends and enjoyed Dave and Busters ( a restaurant with video/racing games) and then went to a Fright Fest at Elitch Gardens. We rode rides, got scared and saw cool costumes. Had a fun and safe Halloween without all the candy. So who know-- maybe a family tradition????

Check out the websites while I get the pictures ready to post!
