This thanksgiving was great. This was the first year I had to cook the WHOLE meal! Everything turned out, no burning, no under cooking and the timing on everything was perfect. The gravy was good the rolls even turned out good! (There's a little history behind the rolls.) We had a great feast. Then of course the guys watched the cowboys game. This was Owens 1st Thanksgiving that he could actually eat the food. Had loved it! Then on black Friday we were brave and went out into the shopping world to see Santa. Luckily where we went there wasn't a rush of people. Adam was relieved. He hates crowds. And this Santa picture Riley was actually smiling. So we had a great Thanksgiving weekend.

Owen's Morning Routine

When I get up in the morning, Owen is usually awake. Since I have to go to work, and everyone else is asleep, I have to do something to keep him occupied until Nikki and the kids get up.

Well, there is only one thing that keeps Owen sitting still for more than five seconds - Sesame Street, his bink, and being wrapped up in a cozy blanket.

When we walk into the living room, he points to the TV, then gets on the couch and raises his arms so I can cover him up with a blanket - which I then proceed to wrap around him completely so only his head pokes out. Then, on goes Sesame Street, in goes the bink, and I'm off to work.

Works every time...

"Happy Halloween"

"This is the best Halloween ever." That's what the kids said after they were done trick-or-treating. We went to a different area then where we usually go. These houses looked like castles! They were all decorated scary and they handed out big size candy bars! The kids liked that. We're definitely going back next year! Owen had a lot of fun just following the kids up to the doors and taking the candy. Paige would say "Thank you, Happy Halloween" and you could hear her from across the street! Riley was a little annoyed, he had a hard time seeing through his mask and he kept tripping and getting mad and hitting the sidewalk. Eventually he took the mask off then he was fine. Well then we came home the kids duped out all their candy to see what they got and had hot chocolate and watched Charlie Brown's The Great Pumpkin. It didn't end very happy for me. I had some candy to hand out but since we didn't stay home I put it in a Halloween bag that my mom made, we used it growing up and put a note saying "take one." Well I knew that one person would take all the candy I didn't care about that but someone took the WHOLE bag!!! I was so mad. I should have known better specially in our neighborhood. I didn't even think that someone would take the bag! White trash people are so inconsiderate!!! It makes me want to move even more now! Sorry I'm venting a little. It just makes me so mad just thinking about it. Sorry mom for losing it!
