Black Friday

What a fun day! Rhonda and Justin came for a visit for Thanksgiving and Rhonda convinced me to do some Black Friday shopping with her. First Rhonda and Justin went out shortly before midnight and got a lot of good deals from old navy-and I had them pick me up some things as well. They finally returned home at 3 am and Rhonda was pumped to go to Targets opening at 4am, and so her and I went over there. The line looked ridiculously long, but we decided to go ahead and get in line anyway. It was only a 15 minute wait outside(in the snow) before we got inside and Rhonda grabbed most of what she needed and we checked out rather quickly. After that we went over to Wal Mart and I was lucky to get Trent a DS-shhh, this is a present he does not know he's getting! We had had enough and headed home and finally crawled into bed at 5:30. That was the first time I had gone out during ridiculous hours for Black Friday shopping and I had a lot of fun. I think the sleep deprevation made us a little silly. Now I need to find the energy to put up the Christmas Tree!!

It has been an eternity since I last updated this blog. Facebook is easier-plus I am already frustrated with this dang thing!
Anyways, here are some pictures from our halloween. We made a haunted gingerbred house that didn't hold together too well, but it tasted pretty good

And here are all our pumpkins we carved this year.

The kids in their costumes.

And a brief update:
Trent is in the first grade and doing great. Still has not missed a day of school-so proud of him. He has two loose teeth! He is my picky eater.
Gwen is great. She 'graduated' from speech therapy and talks non stop. It's wonderful. She is so much fun and so darn pretty. She has about 6 or so baby dolls and is so sweet with them.
As for me, well my job ended early september so I have been home ever since. I really miss working and the busy life but I am enjoying this different pace. I get to go to the Y more often which is great.
Rob started a job about a month back. I am sure he is glad to be out of the house.
I really love this time of year. I am already listening to Christmas music and panicking about buying Christmas presents.

What's new?

I have been avoiding the blog because honestly, i feel like there is nothing to say. but I guess it has been long enough that there is SOMETHING new going on in our lives. Ok, Happy new year-can you believe that january is already halfway gone?! I am still working away 50 hours a week-it's not a big deal as i am used to this schedule and enjoy working. Trent made it through his first semester of school with no absenses. He loves going to school, but i cannot believe that this is the last half of kindergarten for him. Gwen is doing great and every day she talks more and more. Since she doesn't say words too much yet she likes to yell really loud constantly. Like yesterday in the car i was trying to tell Trent something and everytime i would open my mouth Gwen had something to 'say' as well. She wants so much to be part of everything we do. We have been going to the YMCA and it has been really good for all of us. Rob started his first semester of school and Gwen is going to the babysitter twice a week. She will love it there as they have two other little girls and Gwen really likes being around other kids. I have been busy trying to find a new car, since my lease is up in Feb, so that has been stressful. And i have an addiction to Avon-i orderd almost weekly, and i blame mom for that. :) Well, that seems to be all I can think of for now. :)
