Well, here's an update...Shawn and I are finally entering into the 21st century! His mom bought us an iPod for Christmas (he talked her into giving it to him early)! Thanks mom! I can't believe how awesome it is and how lame we've been!
So, I wanted to do something fun with the kids today, because I knew Shawn was working late, so for family night we made a gingerbread house! The kids LOVED it and it turned out pretty cute! Again, I will post a pic hopefully soon!
So here's my 5 for today:
3. WW (I lost 5.3 lbs!)
4. The Forgotten Carols (you were right Emily, it just isn't Christmas without them!)
5. a live Christmas tree! It smells soooooooooooo good!

Before Shawn and I even had kids, this was my favorite picture of him. No wonder! I was staring at our future Landonbug!
I'm so sad. I was so sure I could fix it.
sooo, anyone know who could fix it?
so, I guess no pictures for a while (except the ones I have stored. Maybe I can find something!)
Anyways, I'll do my five for today:
2. free paint! It's yellow, I think we'll paint the basement with it!

3. Cafe Rio salad
4. American Girl dolls.
5. Surprise parties
And Five more (since I've missed a few days...)
1. The Osmond's
2. Tai Pan Trading Co.
3. report cards
4. Grandma taking the boys overnight!
5. My "writing/journal" with Kelly.
One more thing...a surpise in the making...
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh: This is hush, hush. But I'm too excited to hold it in! I have a huge surprise for Jensyn in the making. So, we have tickets to "The Nutcracker" next Saturday, with friends and their daughter's, and the girls are all bringing their American Girl Dolls. Most of you know that Jensyn doesn't have one, I've wanted her to be closer to 6. Anyways, so I told her she would have to borrow a doll to take. Now let me back up by saying that a few months ago, Jensyn found the infamous 300 dollar key that we lost and so she was promised something she wanted really bad, and she chose an American Girl Doll. So, we got her a doll (on the sly), and I am going to surprise her with it on Saturday! She will be soooooooooo excited! I can't wait! We are all dressing up and dressing the dolls up! I just love surprises.
I'll take a picture on Saturday to share.
p.s. Carolyne, thank you for your help in pulling this off!

Your dominant hue is blue, making you a good friend who people love and trust. You're good in social situations and want to fit in. Just be careful not to compromise who you are to make them happy.
Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.
Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.
I took the kids out trick-or-treating..it was very fun! Of course, Jensyn wanted to be carted around in the wagon and the boys were off by themselves, with the Granite-lot of boys! Landon stayed out the longest and got a pillowcase full of candy! I'm going to get a bunch of dollar toys tomorrow and let them trade candy for toys. I just cringe at all the sugar they accumulated and shutter to think about letting them eat all of it. They disappeared to their rooms to "go to bed", uh-uh. We quickly confiscated it, it was a good effort, though!

My brother Jeff, Cody, Jake and Shawn...
Jaxon in the backyard on the swings...
and Jensyn...Landon was busy playing basketball with Shane!
I just finished a book that said you should write 5 things every day that you are grateful for. I'm going to try this!
1. Murphy...he brings us all so much joy! (I know, I sound like a sap).
2. Mountain of laundry...I finished it today!
3. my new job...(so far these are all starting with "M"). It's going really well and I'm grateful to be working again after a fun summer off!
4. my visiting teacher, she brought us yummy cookies last night.
5. diet coke. A day doesn't go by that I'm not grateful for that!

Ryanna got to come today with Heather and she spent a good amount of time teaching Jensyn how to dance around the trampoline poles... so I guess that means she was learning how to "pole dance"? Great.
We had a fun day playing cards today. Added bonus, Heather has a friend who is going to lend me her daughter's Dorothy costume, so I don't have to buy the one at TJ Max! She also has the shoes! yeah!

I thought I got such great pictures today, but I didn't. Oh well. Here they are anyway...
Jensyn wanted me to take a picture of her and her doll and Liza and her doll! She really had a great time. It has to be a new tradition.
About Halloween costumes, I told the kids I was not buying any costumes this year, because I always end up buying 3 of the same costume! in the same size! (spiderman, batman, etc.) and I refuse this year. So, I think Jaxon is going to be a U of U football player, "Brian Johnson", specifically. p.s. This is also what Jaxon wanted to name Murphy. (vetoed) Landon is going to be a vampire (easy enough) and Lincoln is going to be an injured soccer player (thank you Emily). Onto the matter of Jensyn a.k.a. naughty princess...she was all set to be Cinderella, (courtesy of a Ryanna hand-me-down), until I caved in when she said she wanted to be Dorothy! So I bought her a costume at TJ Max, along with some ruby slippers at Target. (I couldn't pass up the opportunity to live out a childhood dream!)
