Thankful for Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving was the Best! We actually had family at our house. My cousin Holly and Jeff and their 4 boys came on Wed and will stay until Tomorrow (Sat). The kids have been so cute and good. We keep taking their temperature, but I think they are having so much fun they forgot to be stinkers. Right at this moment we are playing Risk and Hans really wants to sleep on the couch tonight so he keeps attacking me, and killing off all of my armies. What he doesn't know is that I am going to be like a mosquito with malaria who can't be swatted to him for the rest of the game.

Thursday we started off with a little Turkey Bowl Football. The men played for two hours and the wives and kids played on the adjacent field. Hannah scored a touch down and was really excited. I had to stiff arm a couple of 8 yr olds in the process but it was worth it. After football we came back and made an awesome spread of food while the kids made turkey crafts to hang in the windows.
Then it was time for the feast. Everything was great except for the apple pie. Hol forgot to put sugar in it so it was a little sour but the crust was GReat and it made for lots of funny comments.
This morning Hol and I went shopping and got some great deals. I wish they weren't going home tomorrow but we are planning Christmas with them and we are going to Raleigh next weekend for my nephews baptism.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

all dressed up

Here we are!

House of crazy girls

Hello Friends and Family,
I am finally starting a blog so ya'll can stop bugging me. Just Kidding, I hope this will enable me to keep in touch with my favorite peeps a lot better.
So heres where we are at with my family. Hans and I are the proud parents of 3 (yes I said 3) girls. All as different as they can be. We have Sadie 7, Hannah 3 1/2 Bella 1 (almost). I'll see if I can figure out how to post a picture of them. We live in Northern Virginia just west of DC. We love it out here, but really miss our family in Idaho. Maybe someday we can move back....
I'll sign off with a quote from Sadie
"Mom I love you so much I think I'll turn into a lizard."
OOOO heres another one from last year that she said when we were trying to put eye drops in her eyes
"Daaaad your like an evil witch trying to cast a spell in my eye."
