Happy Thanksgiving y'all!

I spend most of my days dwelling on my problems and drama and forgetting that the Lord has truly blessed me. Oh how very grateful I am for this time of year to have extra reminders of all the blessings I enjoy each and every day. The list is never ending and hard to formulate into words, but I want each of you to know that I am grateful for you and your friendships. Thanks for loving us. Know that we love each of you! Happy Thanksgiving!

Now bring on the turkey!

Veteran's Day Quote

Remain true to your beliefs and the best of how you envision America for our children, but don't live in fear and hate. Pick your battles for that which you hold dear, but remember that we are all brother and sisters and that certain realities never change over time, namely that "A house divided against itself cannot stand." On Veterans Day, please remember why we are here, and for the cause that we serve—the cause of freedom. We are the most powerful force for freedom on the planet, and it's because of the American family that we hold dear. Keep the light on for us, we'll be home soon. Remember the words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, "As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free…" We are proud to be your American Soldiers.

Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone's Halloween was as fun as ours! We were having a casual get together with a few friends, play some games and watch a few spooky movies. Derek doesn't like to hand out candy or dress up so costumes were optional...Like I said very low key. So when Derek got home from work we picked up the house and prepared some treats. Then suddenly a giant masked panda came running out or no where! Hahaha I was dying! "Mr. I don't like to dress up" had borrowed a hilarious over the top costume and surprised me. It was really funny! And everyone who came over ended up dressing up too! We had some great fun playing Apples to Apples and Outburst! Thanks everyone who made it so fun!

So we have here "Kung Fu Panda," an Indian and a Cowboy, A 70's B-ball player (with much too short shorts!) and a Boyscout (again look at those legs!) a Boxer, an 80's girl and an Identity Crisis (she used to have a bunch of "Hello my name is..." stickers) What funny costumes!

Check out those kung fu moves!

Hard to see but the tatoo is a replica of Mike Tyson's...drawn on myself (talented I know!)

Sumo anyone?

Watch out or you're going down!
