Thank You

Thank You all for the lovely comments. They really helped Alyssa feel better about her glasses!!
Emily had a birthday party at a snake farm. She has no fear of snakes.
We had a really good Thanksgiving at our house with the Ales (Damien's sister and family), and neighbors. All the food turned out delicious. However we ate leftovers all weekend for like every meal and I do not even want to think about the food anymore! Damien had the week off and it was very relaxing...We went to the park many times. Here you can see the girls going down head first together. Leanna took a little fall at the park and said really loud "I fell down, now I need to go to the hospital!!" We assured her she was fine. But it is so nice wearing flip flops in the end of November.
Today I got bite by my very first scorpion. OUCH!!! I was putting our Christmas wreath up when the thing bite me. It has been over five hours and the things still tingles and hurts!

"The world is a better place!"

That is what Alyssa said when she got her new glasses...We were watching T.V. the other day when I realized that she couldn't read the digital clock. And then she informed me that she couldn't read the board at school! So, off to the eye doctor! It was a little traumatic for her but these are the stylish frames she ended up with. We got two for the about the same price as one. We are taking a poll, do we like glasses #1 or #2 better????

A trip to Michigan...

Sorry Sorry Sorry to everyone I didn't see! And that really does mean everyone! Just came for a long weekend for my Grandpa Ray's funeral. So, I spent all my time with just family. I did get to spend a short amount of time with my new brother and sister, Zach and Choloe. Here they are with their big sis. I also saw my niece Gracie and many cousins. Here some are! I just wish I had had more time to visit everyone... Damien stayed home with the kids and everyone survived! Actually, he did a really good job! Although, when I told Leanna it was time to go home yesterday she said "home! YEAH time for ice cream!" HMMMMM.... that hasn't happend before : )

Well the girls love Halloween! Leanna and Emily both had Halloween parades and parties at school. Damien and I went to an adult Halloween party at Dave and Busters and brought along Alyssa and her friend. And of course we were all able to Karoke! Then went to our neighbors for a neighborhood party. Then of course we went Trick or Treating on Tuesday with our cousins Nolan and Nathan (the batman boys). So a very busy Halloween! Leanna couldn't get enough of trick or teating or eating candy all day and night. I finally had to put it all away. Alyssa got quite the loot as she made it her mission to get as much candy in one night as humanly possible.
