Well I guess Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Sorry this is all I have, what between shopping and baking and trying to tell my husband not to go overboard on the turkey. But like I said I am turning over a new leaf and I am going to be a blogger. Right now I am making about a dozen pumpkin cake rolls ( the only reason we even have thanksgiving in my opinion, well that and pie ) and my family ditched me to go play at grandmas house. Oh well at least I can actually finish them on time huh? I am so excited for the holidays, but I do have to say that I don't enjoy them quite as much as  I used to, only because it seems like the older you get the quicker they fly by. There is not enough time to enjoy them before its all said and done.  I don't want to get older. I mean I get older but I still don't feel older. That must be a good thing. Still, a child at heart. Does that mean I get to go straight to heaven? The lord said be like unto a little child? If not, at least my kids have a way cool mom huh? . Maybe I will just make up more holidays throughout the year as an excuse to celebrate? Sounds good to me. I have already tried the extending  birthdays and my anniversary into a month long celebration, that however never really works out in my favor. I do have so much to be grateful for. I have such a great family. My husband loves me, my kids are so good, even though I might say otherwise now and again, and I am healthy, except for the ridiculous amount of baby weight I continue to gain even though it would seem I run a marathon daily (that of course would be Gun and Hannah). I am so grateful for all that I have. We are so blessed. ........................ Oh I almost forgot. I am so psyched for the Black Friday sales.                                                          People better watch out.

Only a few days late

Well I guess this must mean that I'm not a true blue through and through blogger. Hey we all knew that though didn't we (Ashlee)! The funny thing is even though  you all know that I am not a blogger  you continue to look at my site, it's like you have nothing better to do with your time. Just kidding I love you all. Thanks for all the support.So the updates for the last few day:

1. Gunnar had croup. We skipped out on church and laid around with the nebulizer.
2. My mom changed our Thanksgiving day plans for the third time. I don't know now if we are going to my sisters house, staying home, going to my mom's, or just ditching out and going to Denny's?
3.  We are in the midsts of potty training Hannah. So far the accidents out number the successes. Even though I am still very impressed at how well she is doing for just being Two.
And last but not least:
4. The kids have been letting me know every chance they get what they will be getting for Christmas from Santa. If they keep it up Santa might not remember everything.  wink wink.

A new leaf

I want to be that amazing blogger who updates the friends and family on a regular basis, posts all the cutes pictures, and says something fun and quirky, or something perhaps that would inspire someone.  But instead I decided to just start small. I would actually post something. SO this is me turning over a new leaf and if I post again before the end of the week I will officially be a blogger. Not to mention this will totally help with my typing and my spelling skills.
