A time to be thankful....

I got this idea from my friend Kiersti ... Since it is Thanksgiving, here are a few things I am thankful for ....

I am thankful for my kids, Bryson and Kira have changed me in ways that I would have never thought possible. They have and continue to teach me unconditional love, they show me that it is the most simplest things in life that make us happy. The patience and determination I have been blessed with because of them has gotten me through some very hard trials.

I am thankful for my sister, Laini. In the past few months she has shown me incredible strength, probably in ways she doesn't even realize. I am thankful for her funny tangents, and of course our little sisterly "quirks".

I am thankful for my Mom who has done a lot for not only me but our whole family, when sometimes it would have been easier to give up.

I am thankful for Julie, she is my favorite person and saving grace. She is one of the most AMAZING individuals I have ever encountered in my life. Her heart is pure. She is the most GIVING person but the best part of her is that she is TRUE, true to you, true to herself! And not to mention, how many people take care of your kids as you would?!?!

I am thankful for Jeremy and Cherise, I am so blessed to have the relationship I do with them. For any of you that have "ex's" or "baby parent" (ha ha) issues to deal with know what I mean. They both are so caring not only for my son but for Kira and myself as well.

I am thankful for the rest of my friends and family. WE all need each other for some purpose or another. Thank you for your love and support.

And last but not least I am thankful for my health. My life and my children's lives's depends on it.

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!!

Well it's official my son is a REDNECK! Now to join his TEMPORARY mohawk (yes compliments of his father ha ha) he is now missing his two front teeth. Just look at how cute my little "trailer" is!! This one though was less traumatic for me. For those of you who are not aware, I cannot, I mean cannot stand loose teeth. Julie had to take the other one out for me and I started dry-heaving. This one came out with a simple wrestling match between him and his buddy Nick, from what I hear it was "awesome and blood went everywhere"!! Thanks Nick!

Happy Halloween!

Our Halloween was really good, I took the day off this year. It started with going to Bryson's school parade, then we came to my work to "trick or treat", then went to Julies party, then off to Grandma's (Bryson to his dad's), then trick or treating we went. Kira LOVED it and would yell YAY candy as she would run from house to house. When at the door would say "trick or treat" really loud, and of course followed with a "tank tu" at almost every house! Bryson on the other hand was kind of a poop, he got burned out early in the day and didnt really have enough gas, he didnt want to do much trick or treating but I made him!!! Here are a few pictures of them in their costumes!
