Give Thanks!

Thanksgiving was pretty normal for us this year. We first ate with the Owens' family at my Grandma Joyce's house. It was fun as usual...that part of my family is always good for a laugh! My assignment was a veggie dish and a pumpkin pie. Since I am not a huge fan, I was just going to buy a pie on our way to dinner, but thanks to sister in law Steph, we took a fresh homemade pie instead. It was really good! Thanks, Steph! After a good dinner and a few laughs, we headed up to Trav's parents house for yet another Thanksgiving meal. (Yes, I did eat a huge plate at both dinners, which were just a few hours apart. So what?) We did the usual: eat, clean up, tease each other, look at ads in the paper, draw names for xmas presents, etc. We then loaded up our two tired babes in their car seats and headed home. We are so blessed to have so much family that welcomes us for the holidays. It often makes for a very busy day but we are very grateful!
p.s. Sorry for the lack of pictures but I didn't take my camera, with my hands being full of pie, casserole dishes, rolls and understand.

Big hair and stretch pants...

You Belong in 1982

Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

You are Ocean Blue

You're both warm and practical. You're very driven, but you're also very well rounded.

You tend to see both sides to every issue, and people consider you a natural diplomat.

Here are my cute girls in their costumes! I know everyone has seen Sailyr as a PeaPod but here she is again!

Here is Skylar as a cute Kitty!

We had a fun and long night running around to visit family and do some trick-or-treating. We first went to Morgan and checked out the festivities up there. They really go all out. The businesses all give out treats so everyone just goes around the town to all of the stores and banks and restaurants, etc. and they even have one street blocked off with booths and costume contests. It is quite the celebration and Skylar loved trick-or-treating with her aunt Lexus. Then it was off to Grandma's and Grandpa's and aunts and uncles. We had a lot of fun!

Smarty Pants'!

Okay, so I guess it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be for everybody to figure out which pea pod is Skylar and which is Sailyr. But you do have to admit there is a close resemblence! The one with the pumpkins is Skylar and below it is Sailyr, but I suppose I didn't have to tell YOU that! Way to go everybody!
