|Rye Drake and Isabella on Thanksgiving Day|
|We used the timer on my camera and snatched a pic of the family.|

|This was Cory's card from the kids. It basically is a sign to hold up on the side of the road if you are lost. I think they were trying to tell him something. LOL|
I absolutely cannot believe that Cory is 44 years old. It's a good thing his wife is 29 (wink, wink) so that he retains some of his youthfulness. LOL It seems like yesterday we were in our early 20's. Drake and Cory went and saw the Harry Potter movie and Rye, Isabella and I went to the mall. That night Cory and I went out and had a great dinner. I love that we are still such good friends and love to be in each other's company. We are almost 23 years into this marriage and it seems like just yesterday we were married and starting our life together.
Isabella was able to see Santa Claus on Saturday. It was very short and to the point...she does not mess around with her wish list. Basically it's all about the Tangled movie (which was wonderful). SO, this Santa (me) has had to go and get something else to meet the needs of her wish list. I really thought she would change her mind and the evil parent I am, actually tried to convince her that she should ask for a doll house from Santa...I DON'T THINK SO!!! Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Rapunzel.....Yeah, I think I got the message SANTA. Thanks!

December is here and it looks like we might have some cooler temperatures over the next few days and then back up to 70....I love 70 in December! The kids miss the snow, but I am not. It so nice to be able to wear flip flops all year round. It's these little things that keep me happy and sane. Sunshine is a little dose of Heavenly Father it helps us to remember all things bright and beautiful.
We had to put the trailer in a storage facility while we are staying at the Marriott. This was a sad day for me. I love the trailer and we have had some amazing memories in it. When we leave Dallas we will stay in the trailer again while we are in between assignments, but I miss staying at the parks, being outside is an amazing experience. I also miss riding my bike on the trails. I guess there is a time and season for doing all things.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Day! I will probably not be sending out Christmas cards this year, but instead, sending an email, and of course updating the blog. We are wishing everyone a joyous holiday season!
|Isabella is so proud that she can now lift the cat. I don't think he likes it though...LOL|
