Updating in process...Nov 2010

Hello and Hope everyone had a blessed thanksgiving Holiday!! I am so blessed for so many things this year. Hope you enjoy all the new things going on with my family!!
My parents went on the first Cruise this year for the 25 wedding Ann. They have talked about this trip for so long and it finally came in Oct. they had great time and since they had such a wonderful time they have already booked there next cruise for next Sept. So very happy to see how God has worked in there lives.

 This was the craziest but greatest weekend ever.. I don't have any thanksgiving pictures from this year but I do have great stories to tell about this year. We got up on thanksgiving morn around 6:30am and took a family trip of 15 to shoneys to eat breakfast as a family. We had such a great time. We had close family with us.. They may not be blood but they have been friends long enough they could be family. The whole group went to eat and afterwards went to old navy where we were like kids in candy store with the huge sale they had. All of us were able to pick out are own Christmas gift from mom and dad. After about 2 hours in old navy we all split to do other family gatherings. Then all met back with the rest of the family of almost 70 ppl at my parents house from young babies to kiddos.It was amazing to see family come together. This was a blessed thanksgiving.

Story two. Keep in mind that we got up a 6:30am Thursday myself, and best friends of mine left home around 11:30pm to go hit the stores for great deals.I haven't got to do this is almost 4yrs so I was so excited!!!! First stop of course WALMART.Crazy may I say people were stealing out of buggies. crawling over to get other gifts and just outraged people. I wasn't really shopping for much just things for the new house and last min gift that haven't been gotten.
We then head over to Kohl's which at this time it is 2am and we get parked and stand in line for over 45min. Then to top it all off it starts raining and wind is so cold. They finally open the doors and people start jumping line and they bring out security to back them off while the line goes in first. So worth the wait I got my new dishes I had been wanting for the last 3mth and i was just not paying full price.So I get to the reg and to my surprise my dishes where even cheaper!!! Yea I got my 61pc dish set reg 139.99 for 29.97!!! Yes you read right I was just so very excited...After Kohl's we headed over to K-mart and noticed the line was so crazy outside we decided to just head to Martin's. Got to martins and again waited for them to open.Met up with some great friends from church while we were standing in line. Finally they open and People rush in to get north face jackets for dirt cheap. They only had 17 in the whole store and people were again outraged. They wanted those jackets so bad they were jerking out of other peoples hand and everything.So by this time its already 7am. A complete 24 hours we were up.
Now its Friday am and We head home.After dropping Amber off I head home to get a shower and try to take a nap before heading off to work. The shower happened the nap however did not. I ended up staying up watching Dora and the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade with Olivia.After watching TV with Olivia we head off to work in ashland. (Sorry pic is side ways)

We get to work and looking forward to the Auburn Alabama Game. I get a phone call around 1:30pm. It's April my best friend we are more like sister than we have ever been best friends.. She is informing me that she is in Labor with her daughter Khloe. So leaving Olivia with her dad I rush down to the hospital and she is in labor for a few more hours.So drew (her fiance)and I head to another room so April could sleep we watch the football game with me being a Tiger fan and drew a bama fan it was very interesting. Very close Game BUT........
WAR EAGLE WINS GO TIGERS!!!!!! WE went undefeated...

 So at this time I have been up you got it...almost 48 hours... I am so drained I get home and fall right to sleep.It was the best week ever. Now however I am trying to get over a cold from standing out in the rain and cold. Then more fun activities.. We had some close friends over from church to eat dinner and watch movies.
