I have been quite the busy bee...my husband left on deployment a little over 2 weeks ago. We miss him very much and it has been quite the challenge to get a handle on everything. I have to get 2 kids off to school every day, a 3 yr old to school twice a week, gymnastics once a week, missionettes for the girls on Wednesdays, trying to fit in working out, cooking, cleaning and homework...makes me tired just thinking about it. Not to mention getting ready for the holidays!

Before he left we made a trip up to Knotts Berry Farm for a family day...it was Veteran's day so you can imagine how many other families had the same exact idea & decided to show up!

We spent last week in Arizona visiting my family and had a wonderful time. I really needed that boost and we will be back there in just 3 weeks for Christmas break. Here we are on Thanksgiving:

We drove back home on Saturday so Alexis could get baptized at church Sunday morning. We were very blessed and for a treat I took the kids out to dinner at Olive Garden. YUM!

On top of everything else for this week, I've added a couple things to my to do list: Decorate for Christmas & start my Christmas shopping!

  1. Wow, I remember being a Missionette growing up. It was so much fun and I loved it! I'm sure your little girls will have nice memories, too. It's so good to see you blogging again. :) Happy Holidays..

  2. Thanks for the update! Miss you around here!
