It would be if we werent all sick!!! I have had it, I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired!!! We have had the weirdest 24hr bugs going through our house. My kids have also missed way to much school and I am fed up!!! We love Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is my two favorite holidays, but it comes at a price, our health! I guess it is time to bust out the bleach and get to bleaching every hard surface in my house to, hopefully, get rid of everything. But on the upside we did have a great Thanksgiving. We spent it with both of our families, we are lucky that they all live so close. I also learned how to make my mom's pies, they are so good. Plus we hit some Black Friday sales and saw New Moon. Me and Aaron kind of take that day and spend it together. And as usual our Christmas tree is up and ready for presents. I love Christmas it makes winter a little more bearable. Now to get us all healthy again!

We had a pretty good week!! We have been so busy, I have not cooked dinner at all this week, we have running around like chickens with their heads cut off!!! We got to go to Stake temple day and that was a lot of fun. We didnt do the whole session we just did sealings instead and that was one of the neatest experiences I have ever had!! It was a great reminder of what we really have been given!! I am so grateful to have an eternal family that I love so much!! Wed was ballet, she is so good at it and loves it so much. She really gets better every week, she's a little dancer, and has even shown some interest in clogging. Then Aaron and I went to Applebees for Verterans Day, it was so crowded!!! But we had a good dinner and alot of fun together!! Then last night Haylee and I went to Disney Princesses on Ice with a few friends. It was so much fun!!! The whole thing was a surprise, Haylee didnt even know that we were going somewhere until we left without the boys. But we met up and went to the Olive Garden where our waitress gave the girls a gift bag that had an invitation to the show in it, along with a whole lot of other goodies for them. They were so excited!!! But we had dinner, which was very good, and headed to the show. It was so cute!! I think my favorite was the 7 Dwarfs, they were really cute. Haylee had a really good time and I am so glad that we went!! I love sitting back and seeing my little girl so happy, it makes everything so worth it!!! But after such a crazy week I think we will spend tonight at home as a family. That is what I say now, we will see how it all goes. I hope everyone had a great week!!! Some are from Halloween.

So here is why I dislike Halloween so much. My children have been finding candy everywhere and want it for every meal of the day!! Then the other night Aaron and I were watching tv to discover Aaron was stuck to the couch!! GUM!!! GUM stuck to my couch, you have no idea how mad I was!! If my kids got nothing but chocolate, then I might consider liking Halloween, but people, like me hoard the chocolate for themselves. Not to mention SUCKERS, McCoy had THREE in his mouth, at the same time!!! I HATE Halloween because of the candy!! I have tried to take it away and hide it, but my children are sneaky, like their father, and find it every time. I will have to start doing what Alisha does and let them trade it in for a toy or something. That is such good thinking!! I like everything but the candy!!! If we could just dress up and decorate then it would be fine.

Well not a lot happened this month. Just the same old thing, school, ballet, work for Aaron and house work for me. We had parent teacher conference for both of the kids and they are both doing so good!! I am amazed at how well they are doing!!! Haylee's reading is so awesome and they write like little adults, I am loving their school!! The most excitement this month is Aaron's hand surgery that he had done on Friday. He is recovering nicely and quickly. We also had a good Halloween, my least favorote, but they had fun and got a lot of junk!! I am getting more into Halloween now that I have kids, but it is still not my favorite. Although I was really disappointed that my family didnt hold their spook alley this year!! It is so much fun and it usually draws a huge crowd. But maybe next year. I will post pics of the kids in their costumes later, they looked so cute!! But October is over, which means it is time to get ready for Thanksgiving, and Christmas, my two favorites!! I am not a fan of winter, but what can you do besides move somewhere warm?? Anyway I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!!!
