My new furniture!!!

Here's all the furniture together, a couch (against the wall), a love seat, an accent chair, and a throw rug!!
The couches are microfiber and have wooden arms/legs. The accent chair (below) matches perfectly w/our color scheme and is actually a really comfy chair!!

Whooooooo Hoooooo!!!! I finally have furniture for my living room. We had some friends over for dinner and they mentioned that another friend in the ward was selling some furniture from a model condo for a great deal. We went to check it out and found lots of great deals!!! It doesn't match perfectly (especially the throw rug, but it's very soft) but it's so great to be able to sit and talk, read, and just relax in our living room, I love it, thanks to the Patricks and the Stallings!!!

Oh boy

Sometimes I just have to look at my kids and laugh, that's usually when I grab my camera so I can blog whatever made me laugh, to hopefully make you laugh too!! The other night I turned around from the computer to find JD like this on the living room floor; don't ask me, I have no idea what runs through his head. We're all so proud of him!!!

Mr Roboto

Sis and JD found one of Daddy's birthday cards that played "Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto" and told me to come watch them. I went in and they opened the card and started dancing, it was so hilarious I asked them to do it again so I could get it on video and post it on our blog for all to share!!! Enjoy!!

Pizza Man

Sis is learning all about pizza in preschool, how to make it, how to order it, what foods you can put on it, the shapes, she got to deliver it to people in the class, eat it for snack, etc. She made this hat and was so proud of it, on the way home from school she said, "Mom, when I grow up I want to be an artist and a pizza man!!" It was adorable, both her and JD have so much fun there!!

JJ strikes again!!

You'd think I would learn my lesson by now-- but sometimes I just can't resist sleeping in a little. This morning J left for work after giving Sis and JJ breakfast and letting them start a movie, JD was still asleep so I thought, what could it hurt, and went back to sleep for another 45 min. I awoke to JD telling me JJ had done something naughty, of course!! He found Sis' glittery pink nail polish, gave himself-fingers and toes; JD's Lightening McQueen car; and my carpet a makeover!!!! Well, that's all we've found so far anyways. Never a dull moment around here!! If anyone has any suggestions for taking nail polish out of carpet it would be much appreciated!!

Our family LOVES hot cocoa!! Years ago for my birthday, my wonderful husband bought me the BEST GIFT EVER!! It is called the Cocoa Motion. It blends up the yummiest hot cocoa; it is so creamy and smooth and we always like to spice it up by adding yummy mix-ins like peppermint hershey's kisses, mint melt aways, candy cane, etc. Here's our family enjoying nice warm cocoa after a really cold walk!!

The reward!!

This year we had Barbie Mariposa, A cute and scary spider, and Buzz Lightyear
J with all the kids at Boo @ the Zoo!!

From reading all your blogs, it sounds like our week was the same as everyone else's: We had Preschool parties, library parades, free pics around town, Boo at the Zoo and trunk or treats-which by-the-way, whoever thought of that deserves a big fat smooch, my kids hit 30 spots in 45min with no worries of scary dogs, cars running over them, doors to knock on, getting colder and colder walking from house to house, etc. etc. etc. so thank you to the Trunk-or-treat genius!! Happy Halloween!!
