Catchup.....or catsup, however you prefer

So it has been a while and I am not sure why.  I do prefer facebook because it seems simpler and I don't feel compeled to do a long thing.  Here are some pictures from this last week.  I hope you all are ready for the holiday seasons that are upon us.  I know I am. 

As a note, we have moved Thanksgiving Dinner to Grandma Elder's basement.  She is considering it practice for Christmas Party.  So everyone is invited to dinner at Grandma Elder's house for Thanksgiving Dinner.  Please let me know if you plan to attend as I am the Executive Chef for this meal.  I may even get one of those chef's jackets.....or maybe not, but it would be cool (hint hint).  So far our menu will consist of turkey (not cooked by grandma LOL) prime rib, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravey, green bean casserole, 7 layer salad, carrots and a lot more followed by a palethera of pies to include but not limited to pumpkin, lemon meringue, pecan and maybe some creme brulee`  So you are all welcome and like I said just let me know so I can plan and get enough prime rib (for adults only) and make appropriate side dishes.  Oh and if there are any special requests please let me know and I am sure we can fit them in.

So, back to my original purpose my pictures.  Here you go and I hope you like them.


The other night I was checking on everyone to make sure they were in bed and this is what I found.  Bowen & Colton together in Bowen's room along with 1 bulldog and a kitten.  This happens quite often, even though they both have their own room they always end up together.  I guess I just assumed that kids want their own rooms because growing up that was the only thing I wanted was to not share a room with Amber, but in this situation it is the other way around.  THe only thing these boys want is to SHARE a room with each other.


Visiting dad at teh station.  This is Scott's bed.  The kids have sooo many questions.  Do your feet hang over?  Is it comfortable?  Do the other guys snore?  Are you warm enough?  You would think they were his wife, LOL.


Trying on the clothes dad wears when fighting a fire.  Aren't they cute???


How cute is he?  He has a long way to go.  He has now decided he wants to be a firefighter also but in Paris France.  I say go for it!!  I will visit a few times each year.  Guess I should start studying french.



After Scott got called out again we decided to go and visit Amber since she isn't that far.  She was very very excited to see teh kids.





As you can see, while I was happy to see my younger sister she was very very excited to see me.  She sat on my lap and showered me with love.  We can thank Justin for the not so flattering shot of her behind, but I think it is a good picture of myself, so that is why I included it.  Thanks Amber we had a great time and good sushi.

So that was our week.  Let me know about Thanksgiving.

Yeah, Amber went tanning and went a little too long and is sun burned, she kept complaining she looked like an oompa loompa. It was funny.

Also I had a great gift idea the other day then I forgot it. I would like some odd-ball off the wall kitchen gadgets. I love kitchen stuff. I would love a chef's jacket or a nice apron. NOt a cheesy apron, but a nice one.
