Thanksgiving weekend

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We did. We honestly all have been sick, We have had a horrible cold and we almost did not go anywhere for Thanksgiving. Wednesday we loaded up on medicine and decided we would try. We headed up to Utah to my mom's. I hardly got any pictures because I was not feeling good at all. But I got a few.

Here is Baxter and Bridger helping Grandma at 600 in the morning breaking bread for the stuffing. They were still not to awake.

 Some of the family. Yes this is all the picture's I got. But we did do a lot of visiting while we were up there and had some fun.
 Then Thursday night Jason and I decided we would brave Walmart. We got there at 900 pm and the sale started at 1000pm. It was a nightmare. We went for one thing and did not get it. There was a mean lady in the trampoline area and it ruined the hole night. In the future we decided we might go make fun of people on black Friday but never try to shop then. It worth paying a little more for your sanity.

 Bridger and Boston and Brielle have been building there own fort. They have done it all by themselves. They had fun working on it this weekend.

Brielle is a little scary up on top of it with a hammer and high heels.
 They have been having lots of fun. Bridger has asked for Christmas for his own power drill. He is pretty funny.

Baxter had fun playing with the ducks.
 and Bristol had fun chasing the chickens.
 Jason and Baxter hung a new light above our stairs. It had a awesome gold one up there i was not to fond of. So one day while out yard sailing i came across this light it was brand new. It was silver and i wanted brown so i spray painted it. It turned out pretty good.
 Jason about killed him self up there thou. One of the kids turned on the light while he had the wires and it was not pretty.
 The boys also added a second story on there fort.
 and we took some Holiday pictures. It was a nice break to have such a long weekend and we our all finally feeling better. Ya

Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,

If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something

For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.

During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations

Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge

Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes

They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary

Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are

also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles

and they can become your blessings.

Christmas, Pumpkin Muffins, and the Chicken Poxs

We are beginning to deck the halls around here. Our house is smelling like Christmas, we have the mess of decoration's for Christmas. But we are having a great time. We have gotten 3 trees done in the Living room, family room and the office the house decorated and tonight the kids will all have a tree in there rooms and decorated. It feels good to have it done and be able to relax now and enjoy the holidays.

We have had a pretty eventful week, Brielle started in with a fever Monday, I took her to the doctor on Tuesday. He could not find anything wrong except her 103 fever. He said she must have a viral infection. The next day here it came Chicken pox's all over the poor thing. She has had the shot but still got them. Today she has finally got up and about and a little more like herself. Poor thing it has been a fun week.

 I got my little reindeer up to the bar this morning and made some yummy muffins I would love to share.
 They are super easy. This is all you need.
 A few more picture's of my Christmas trees worse nightmare
 and this little look she always gives everyone. She is so cute and fun.
 Mix the cake mixes and pumkin togeater. I added choclete chips because choclete makes everything better. And if you want to add a little pumkin pie spice. I added it but you don't need to.
 Grease your muffin tins
 Spoon some in and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
 They are so good and easy. I like to frost them with Cream Cheese Frosting.
well there you have it our week.

Pomegranate Jelly

Yesterday I spent the morning making pomegranate Jelly. I have a great recipe and I know a few have asked for it. It is super simple. First pick your pomegranates. Next the worse part juice all your pomegranates. Juices around our parts goes for 25.00 dollars a gallon. Here is all I got this year out of ours.
 Next put your lids in a pan full of water on low to heat them up
 Wash all your bottles and rims.
 Take 4 cups of juice and 1 package of pectin
 bring to a boil, then add 5 cups of sugar, bring to a boil add 1/2 teaspoon on butter to help with the foam and boil for 2 minutes.
 Pour into jars, put the warm lids and rings on them and turn them over so they will seal. Super easy and super yum. I made 6 batches and got 24 pints. I had a gallon of juice left and I froze it. It will freeze for 1 year. We use it to make ice cream that turns out super good.

Veteran's Day Weekend and Aviation Nation

We had a really fun weekend. Thursday we spent the day putting up our Christmas lights. Then on Friday we went to the veteran's day parade.

Bridger and Baxter sat on the side lines of the parade and took pictures

 Boston scout troop was in the parade
 He was lucky and got to ride in the car, you can see him in the back
 Brielle little cheer group also were in the parade, They had too trailers full of a total of 75 girls, Jason pulled one trailer while i sat on one and manged the girls.

 The boys took the pictures so i did not get a ton

 Then there cheer group performed at our local store Lins Holiday open house
 Nothing like 75 girls and there parents in the produce department, craziness says it all.
 But Brielle was sure cute.

Friday, Jason sister Brenda and her husband Joel and 5 kids came for the night. We had a blast. Saturday we headed down to Aviation Nation in Las Vegas with them.

 We spent the day there and had a ton of fun. Sorry lots of pictures

 One of the booths were doing a thing if you did 10 push ups they would give you a free T Shirt. Bridger was the first one to get one then Jason and Brielle also did push ups for shirts to.

 Bristol was so good the whole day. She loved running around dancing to the music. She still does not walk to well in shoes.
 It was a great day.
