Happy Thanksgiving!

So much to be Thankful for!! We had a wonderful time up at my Aunt Debbie and Uncle Jim's house! We love going to Utah for Thanksgiving to see my family! The kids had a blast playing with their cousins! Cash didn't leave Uncle Jim's side helping out on the farm! He's such a helper! I had blast laughing with my cousins! Chad brought all the toys so the big kids could ride! We had a wonderful day! Thanks for feeding us! We will be back next year! :)
On Friday morning we headed over to Panaca to see Chad's family! Oh what fun we had there! Chad helped in the yard! Cash and Penny had a blast playing and I sat around working on my Christmas cards and visiting! Another wonderful day! We sure have a great time with Chad's fam! Amazing food as always even out of town! We left Saturday morning and Penny was lucky enough to get to stay with Grandma and the rest of the fam until  Sunday! She had a blast! Didn't stop making crafts and playing with her cousins! She woke up Sunday morning to Snow! We missed it but she sure got to play and play in it! She was so  excited!! Again so much to be thankful for! Such a wonderful relaxing holiday weekend! We sure love our family!!

What an Accomplishment!

Words can not express how proud I am of my sister! She recently ran and completed her very first Marathon! 26.2 Miles! Man i don't even think I could even do the 2 out of the 26.2 miles! Her hard work, determination, and dedication amazes me! She seriously can do anything and everything! We had such a fun night spotting her and Joanna at all the different mile markers! We wanted to give them something to look forward to as they came up to the next mile! They never knew where they would spot us next and that's what kept them going! 26.2 miles is a long time to run! We had a blast! The kids would get so excited to see them running by! We would then hop  in our car and Chad would map out what mile marker we should head next! So much fun! Love these Aunties! They are the most amazing! Such an inspiration! We are so proud of you girls!!! You did it!!!

Duning it Up!!

We finally got out to the dunes for our 1st trip of the season!! Oh what an amazing time we had!! The perfect trailer!!! Great weather! and of course great company! love being with our family!! Penny's little razor didn't stop the whole weekend! She had a blast and so did all the kids riding!! She such a good little driver too! We can't wait to get back!!! We love our dune life!

Fun things Happening for Penny!

Oh man 1st grade has been a busy start for all of us!! For me it's been an eye opener balancing everything i do from working to being mom and wife to sitting down and working with her on all her homework, sight words, and reading and projects! I didn't realize the time it takes to really work  with her on these things and how much needs to be done at home for her to excel! Well boy do  we have it down now! We have our systems and she has been doing awesome! I'm so proud of her! The sight words and reading have been a challenge for us! but she is getting it and got an award for reaching her AR reading goal! So proud! Working hard pays off! She is so amazing! Love the determination she has!

Also at school all the 1st graders put on the cutest Thanksgiving Program! Of course Penny sang her little heart out! She did amazing on her speaking part! Just love my little performer!
