With the help of my parents we we're able to spend the weekend in Michigan. My youngest brother David was leaving for his mission and we decided to get together for a early Thanksgiving. We had great weather and a wonderful time. We stayed with my brother Nate who also lives in Michigan along with his wife and their 3 kids, my brother Mark from Arizona also stayed there with his wife and their 3 kids, then Justin and I (and our 2 kids). It was a packed house but sooo much fun. We had late night Rock Band sessions, family football, a visit to the beach and a day at the zoo! Being with family is one of my favorite things and I'm so glad we could all get together before David left!

Remember that time I blogged about Adlen not having accidents and was doing so well with potty training? Yeah, we had 3 accidents the other day....I spoke too soon!

Just thought I'd post some pictures, but it was a pretty laid back holiday. Find a pumpkin, carve it, and go trick or treating! Adlen was a USC cheerleader and Tysen was a lion!

We have a job!

Our cute little Justin has a job that he will start on Wednesday. He is working for a concrete company doing their inside sales. We are thrilled that it didn't take long, and that it is enough to cover our expenses.
In other good news Adlen is diaper free, she is doing so well going to the bathroom and rarely has a wet diaper in the morning and I can't remember the last time we had an accident!
Tysen has two bottom teeth now and is walking along the furniture and trying to stand on his own.
I'm looking for a job still, something part time in addition to doing MK. I thought it would be good to have a little more coming in just so we can get caught up on this last month with no income and the 7 weeks Justins' boss still owes him, and if I get one some where fun it would be nice to have Christmas on a discount.
I'm feeling really blessed right now and thankful to my dear friends who have helped us and our wonderful families
