ok, so I just went to download some pics of the camera, and well, there is a whole bunch of 'what we've been up to"...

I always feel like we do something fun, or something funny happens, or I just want to speak my mind(usually not funny LOL) or the kids do something cute, or my husband does something out of the ordinary, or I do something spacey(like everyday!! LOL).....and I always think to myself..

"this would be such a perfect thing to blog about"... and well, life happens, and we just keep going, and then I never blog.

I am a slacker like that. Or do they call it procrastination???

so, I thought I'd give a peek into our whirlwind of the last few weeks.

Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday, and that you spent some good time with family and/or friends. oh, yeah, and that you had fabulous food =)

Brigham's Thanksgiving feast/program at school the week before Turkeyday.(well, not so much of a program, as it was they stood on their mats, and wiggled and waved at the parents, and TRIED to sing a couple of songs. Some of the kids even included the hand motions.

Mine finally figured it out during the last verse of the second song!!LOL

and we crafted a turkey cupcake!!

Brigham samples his masterpiece. They were actually quiet good!!

and we took home a pilgrim ... he took this with us to my grandma's and tried to describe what /who he was!!

We stuffed ourselves with Grandma's down home farm cooking on Thanksgiving Day.

Tatum and Brig were the life of the party.

My grandma just adores them both, and at 87 years old, still gets down on the floor to play with them.!!

We actaully took a video that we got at the library. SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK---

does anyone remember that? took us down memory lane for sure. My cousins are still in highschool so not to far off for them, but we got quite the chuckles as we looked back at this show.

Brigham of course LOVED it, and is now repeating... junction, junction, whats your function all the time!!

Here is a picture of my sweet brother and Tatum. He has been away in Pheonix for the last 3 years, so it was fun to have him here, even if he did sleep most of the day!!

We made these cute little turkeys.

Love the concentration and the tongue out!!

oh, yeah, and Tatum tried oatmeal for the first time a couple weeks ago....

not a fan at first..

and then she decided it was ok (either that, or she just knows how to work the camera!! LOL)

hope you're having a GREAT week =)

this is how you do it....

step 1:lift the lid very carefully, so you don't make a loud noise(same for shutting the lid)

step 2: wait for a big stream to come out and then see if the water turns '"lello".

step 3: wash hands and make a big mess!!
(notice the blue shorts in the water.. those are from the mess from number two, which we don't quite have down =(
WHOO HOOOOOOO! this is the phrase which he shouts out with great satisfaction!!
we are waking up with dry pullups for about two weeks now!!
its a fun time around our house!

I pulled it off !

tribute to this man and the welcoming him into the thirtysomething club-

We went to dinner with our awesome friends Greg and Kelli. Went to this fabulously nice restaurant in our town(we only have 2 or 3!).It was one of those nice, leisurally dinners, that took about 2 hours of great conversation, lots of laughs, good drinks, good food , good company.

We were celebrating Andrew' s big 30th birthday!!

Little did he know that more fun was yet to come.... we decided to go for drinks at this Irish Pub. I so knew it would NOT be hard to get him to go. and so when we arrived at the bar,


I had reserved a cozy corner and 20-25 of his friends were waiting there to congratute the old man!

I can't believe I pulled it off.. Andrew said he had thought I might do something b/c he threw me a big suprise party for my 31st(yeah, I was a year late...totally suprised me!!LOL).

Then when I asked him a couple weeks before about a quiet dinner with our closest friends at the Hour Time, he figured, I hadn't done anything... but was ok with it.

So, he totally didn't have a clue!!

I made him this cake too. I baked it Thursday night at my moms(after a mom's night out) so he didn't know about it.. then went back over to my mom's on Friday day to decorate it!

I so thought that a 3 year old jabbermouth was going to spill the beans.. but he never mentioned it!!

Andrew is a HUGE broncho fan.. so that was the theme for the night...although I asked my dad to bring orange,blue, and white balloons ahead of time to the bar.. and well, he brought yellow, blue and we pretended they were for the Denver Nuggets(basketball)!!LOL

anyway, it was a great time and we started out the evening with our friends, and we finished it off around 2 am with a late night snack at Qdobas.

Funny how after a night of drinking, you're always hungry for a meal.. yet at home, you'd never wake up in the middle of the night to eat like that!!

...luckily we got to sleep in, because my mom had the kids. and thank goodness the smoking band was in effect, because we didn't wake up with the stinch of stale cigarettes in our hair!! YUCK!!!. and to think we both smoked during our college and pre Brigham days...

so yes, Tatum had her first night away from us!! I am not one of those moms that worries, because, she stayed at my moms, and I am pretty sure my mom knows how to handle a baby. and if not, big brother was there to help out!! LOl
Mom, said she woke once in the middle of the night, drank a bit from the bottle and went right back to sleep. Basically she slept from 8 pm to 7 am!!
sure wish she would do that for us!! we've been digressing in the sleeping thru the night department.. UGH!!
but the potty training is coming along great.. no more diapers..just pullups, and no accidents except for #2..
I've got more pics from the party to edit, and we also had our family photo shoot on Saturday.
we got a few shots in for Tatums 6 month shoot, but then she got really tired, so we're trying again in a couple days.
Hope you all had a great weekend!!!

the lion and the lamb

finally getting my halloween pics up. ughh. I have 3 different photo editing software programs.. and they all take FOR-EVER to do.

I usually just wait and edit my pics thru Walgreen's .com before I order them online.

works for me.

I have been trying to organizing my pics little by little as well.... will it ever end???

scrapped a little in the last week.

we had a great time with our friends on Sat night...smores and hot dogs and a bonfire.. and of course some drinks.. (a few of us had a few too many!!). we had so much fun just hanging out, maybe we'll get one more nice night before it gets too cold, to do it again. we'll bring the FUN drinks this time =)

Sunday we had our sunday school lesson on Families of Faith. very cool class. and fabulous book study. We were supposed to go to Morman church (but that would have been 4 hours of church for us!!! =/)

so we decided to stay for our worship service. so glad we did. it was a great sermon.

Sunday afternoon we went to some friends house to watch the BIG game.

Colts vs. Patriots.

We had our token cheerleader dressed in blue!! (though none of us were actually that big of Colts fans.. but since we live in In... we have to try)

Cleaning the house today. baking a chocolate molten cake for dessert. I am hosting my girls group tonight. Hopefully it turns out. I was wanting something more fall-ish, but nothing was sounding that great. so chocolate it is!

hope you're all having a great weeK!
