Black Friday

Benson and I went shopping the day after Thanksgiving. We got up at 3:50 and headed up to Mervyn's for the opening and then went to Target for their opening at 6:00. We had so much fun. There was nothing major that we wanted we just love the experience. Nothing rings in the Christmas holiday like running, fighting, yelling, grabbing, and swearing at 5:00 in the morning on wonderful Black Friday. And of course, we did end up finding plenty to buy. I hope all of you had as much of a memorable day as we did.

Happy Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving feast!
Grandpa, Avery, Janel, Johnny, Brooklyn, Laura, Benson, Caitlin, and Grandma
I was also there but was busy taking the picture and Jeremy of course had to help take the picture instead of be in it.
Brooklyn found these turkey hats on Playhouse Disney. We printed them off and the kids colored them and we put them together. They loved them.
Jeremy finally gave in to sleep at around 4:30. He was totally pooped.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I love the holidays and the time I get to spend with family. Here is a list of 5 things I am grateful for (in no particular order, well maybe kinda):
5. chocolate
4. the heater and the window air conditoner in my apartment
3. my car
2. my family and friends
drum roll.......
1. Benson, Brooklyn, and Jeremy!
Now I want you to tell me yours, please!

So this is what happens when parents are sleeping while children are awake. Jeremy had a really fun time coloring himself while I fell back asleep. The good news is that the marker was washable.

Daddy/Daughter Date

First things first, I want to thank all of you who responded to my last post. It is nice to know that people look at the blog on a regular basis. So...... I shall continue!

Last night Benson and Brooklyn went on a little date. They went to dinner and then to Disney On Ice. They had a really good time. Benson said that Brooklyn was on the edge of her seat the whole time and he even let her get a souvenir. Benson had a really fun time watching Brooklyn have such a good time. He even talked about wanting to take her to Disneyland because he really enjoyed seeing the excitement in her eyes.

Anyway, that was the big exciting event for the weekend. Not much more is happening here. We are getting excited about the holidays coming up and spending time as a family and also spending time with family. The kids and I already listen to Christmas music when we are in the car. Benson can't belive it. Hopefully I will get Christmas cards sent out this year.

Hello, is anyone there?

Ok, so I told Benson that I am going to stop doing this blog thing because nobody ever looks at it besides me. He told me I was crazy, that people look at it. So I ask all of you to respond so that I know someone other then me looks at it. All you have to do is respond to this post and say that you look at it.
Thanks so much! (In my best Utah voice.)

Brooklyn was Tinkerbell for Halloween and Jeremy was a firefighter. Brooklyn thought it was so cool she got to put on make up for Halloween. Jeremy wasn't really thrilled about wearing a costume until he found out that it got him candy. After that he was pretty cool with it.

halloween cookies

The kids had a fun time decorating halloween cookies especially with their cousin Sydnee.

weinberger family halloween party

We had a Halloween party with Benson's family. It was a lot of fun. The kids had fun carving pumpkins. Brooklyn carved a bat and Jeremy did a happy face. They were both very proud of their pumpkins.

root canal hell

Sorry I have not posted in a few days. I had a toothache last weekend and went to the dentist on Monday and I had an absess. (I don't know how you spell that.) Anyway, I had to have a root canal and after that I was in major pain. I was standing at the pharmacy counter crying waiting for my pain medicine to get filled. Long story short, that pain medication didn't work and then they put me on something stronger which made me sick. Then the antibiotic they gave me didn't work and I was getting more and more swollen. So the dentist gave me a stronger antibiotic and it is finally starting to work. I am starting to feel back to normal. I have some really cute pictures of the kids from Halloween. I will post them sometime this weekend.
