November B-day!

My mom celebrated her birthday on the 15th of November this year. We all headed out to cheesecake factory to celebrate and enjoy a nice dinner together. We all got something delicious and then of course, cheesecake to share. Vanilla bean, red velvet and the tuxedo were the flavors we enjoyed. Since we did not get my mom an actual gift, we decided to take her to see Breaking Dawn since it came out the same week as her birthday. We saw it on Saturday around 1:00pm and it turned out to be perfect because it was not too packed and there were not a lot of kids screaming every few seconds. I really liked the movie and I think my mom did too. Katie also came and so did our boys, Tadd and Dennis. My dad lucked out and was busy on Saturday so he didn't make it. It was a great day and we love my MOM so much and are so happy and extremely lucky to have her as our mother!!!

Sandpoint Idaho

This past weekend Tadd and I headed up to Idaho to see his Grandma as well as his aunt and cousins. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and had a lovely dinner with all of them. We watched some magic tricks by the kids and then headed to bed. On Sunday, we woke up and went to church with Cleo and then came home and Lisa and Cole headed out to go hunting while we stayed and played Just Dance with Quinn and some other fun games. Cole shot his first deer and they gutted it and then skinned it and he got to keep the heart and one of the hooves, it was pretty intense. Monday morning, we woke up and we ate some breakfast and then got ready to head around town. We went to their ski resort called Schweitzer and on the way up the mountain it was pretty and sunny and then we were taking pictures and it started to snow...lots. We drove down the hill in a blizzard. It was crazy. We then walked around the town of Sandpoint and shopped around. The snow stopped and we all went to lunch on the beach (with snow on it...) and enjoyed each other's company. We walked around a bit and then the trip was already over! It went fast but we had a great time with them and they were great hosts. We are hoping to make it up there again soon.

Up to Date...

I never really take pictures anymore it seems...but we have been pretty busy lately. A few weeks ago, we went to Berkeley to hang out with my college roommate and her husband who went to Cal. We had a nice weekend spending time with them and just enjoying each others company and getting away briefly.

After that weekend, we did some housesitting...then we had a fun weekend with some friends to celebrate his birthday! Then of course Halloween. We never have any big plans for Halloween because we don't have any kids. But this year, similar to the past few years we went trick or treating with some friends who have kids. We ate lots of yummy food and played some games. However, since it was a Monday night, we had to get back to the house and get ready for the workday following.
Other things are...still planning Jills wedding...and it is moving right along. Also, Tadd's family has all had kids officially. Two new babies were born in the last two months. We are so excited for Christmas this year as we are visiting Arizona and will get to meet the new additions. We both are currently super busy with school for me and Tadd is teaching institute which keeps him studying as well. Hopefully I will have more pictures to share as we move into the Holidays.
