Happy Thanksgiving!

Looks like this one got some tan lines!

Looks like it was a great first Thanksgiving. Too bad the whites committed genocide on the natives...

So let's be thankful for the good things in life and for the ability to deal with the bad things as well!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!

Sunday Samplings- My Funniest Movies!

I am a big, BIG, fan of movies! And I love comedies; they make you laugh and laughing makes you feel happier and it reduces stress! So just for fun I'm listing my top ten funniest movies list so if you desire you can view them yourself!

In no particular order:

1. The 'Burbs (1989): This movie stars Tom Hanks and Carrie Fisher and even Corey Feldman! This movie had me crying since I was laughing so hard. One of Tom Hanks finest performances. You won't be disappointed!

2. Galaxy Quest (1999): Starring Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver! Take all the sci-fi shows, especially Star Trek and turn them into a spoof and you have Galaxy Quest. It's cute, it's funny, and even heart-warming!

3. Music and Lyrics (2007): Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore...I didn't think they'd ever have chemistry...but I was wrong! If you've been an 80s music fan you'll really love this one, but even if not, it'll still be a wonderful romantic-comedy!

4. Notting Hill (1999): Yes, another Hugh Grant! Just sweet, adorable, and laugh-out hilarious!

5. Stranger Than Fiction (2006): Yes, Will Ferrell can act and even take on some great roles that are both sweet and comedic! Plus this one has the always amazing Emma Thompson!

6. The Wedding Singer (1998): Yes, I am an 80s of course I just love this movie! And Adam Sandler can sing!

7. Tommy Boy (1995): Definitely Chris Farley's best comedy...I think it's the movie I can quote the most! Hilarious!

8. Clue (1985): Based on the game with the same name and also loosely based on Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None novel. This one is definitely one of my favorites! You'll simply die laughing. So many quotable quotes in here as well!

9. Meet the Parents (2000): Whatever can go wrong when you're trying to get the approval of your significant other's family and parents do in this movie! It's so brutal but oh so hilarious! I just love Ben Stiller.

10. Mystery Men (1999): Yes, another Ben Stiller movie...he just cracks me up. A spoof on super heroes and this one doesn't disappoint!

Sunday Samplings: First Kiss!

I was a bit young on my first kiss...I was 14...his name was Dillon...horrible kisser, super sloppy, and just icky. Needlesstosay, it didn't last too long, like a week. He was one of those popular guys and it was pretty funny that as soon as we were "together" all of his friends thought I was the greatest and just couldn't get enough of me! And then we "broke up" and I no longer existed! Oh, the funness of high school! HA HA! So glad I never have to go back in time to relive them....


Well, it officially became winter yesterday....well, a bit on Friday too. I was hoping the nice days would stretch out just a bit more. Boog and I were having a lot of fun taking morning walks with the weather being so nice! Oh well, with my exercise group four days a week and my treadmill I should be still good to go. I love the snow, but I hate driving in it and I just hate the bitter cold. I want to live in a nice mild climate all year round! Next winter, though, Boog will be able to play in the snow with me so it'll make it even funner!

9 Month Checkup

Well Gabe is officially nine months old! I can't believe it! He just keeps getting bigger and bigger. He is still a nail, though! He is 29.5 cm long and is officially too big for his car seat now (87th percentile). His head is 18.3 cm (83 percentile). Weight is 18.87 pounds (23 percentile). So he still has a big head, he's tall and doesn't weigh a thing! Just like his parents! Oh, wait, no! His doctor said everything seems to be going well and he looks as healthy as a horse!

He's still not crawling we're getting lots of tummy time in even though he just screams and screams! But he gets around really well in his walker since Archie took off a few obstacles so he can cruise around on the carpet as well as the linoleum. Now he's pulling off the DVDs, CDs, chairs, glass objects! We're baby proofing now!

He's finally sleeping better again at night since his surgery a month ago and his cold last week! Yeah! Sleep is somewhat here again. We also had our water heater go kaputz a few days ago and had to have a new one installed today. That was not so fun since it cost us an arm and a leg to do I still have my car to pulled over yesterday for my expired tags...grrrr! But it should be ready to renew here in the next few days as long as our catalytic converter light doesn't come back on within the next twenty miles! So wish us luck!

Sunday Samplings: Light

I was going through some old high school papers and ran across this poem I wrote when we were studying Shakespeare...we had to write in iambic pentameter! Yikes! So I thought I would share it with y'all!


As first lighting is seen no harm can be
for no one knows wrath that soon will be seen.
The snake of they Father will think you glee
While he leadeth thee from the Super Being.
If thou no remorse thy essence be damned.
The inferno shall ye be with thy weeping
Voice and thy pains unleashed shall be manned
By Him. But for those whose wool's white and clean,
By thy shepherd ye have followed, thy soul
Will rise and resist His wrath. Ye gather
Thy kin to behold such glory they whole
Life has yearned; for they way made'st such matter.
Heavens shall open, He, thy god shall come
To take thee to thy father, His world from.

I was only fourteen when I wrote this! It's kind of dark at first and then I tried to throw some hope in there too at the end. Thanks for reading!

Crazy, Crazy, Crazy

I guess that must be normal when you are a parent! But my poor little Boog has gotten a cold and now his nose is running profusely so we have to squeegie his nose every five minutes and wipe it with Kleenexes. We have him on Tylenol and he's sleeping in his swing to help keep him upright better so his nose doesn't drain as much into his sleep is more difficult, which means sleep is nonexistent again for me! Oh, the joys.

We were looking forward to dressing him up in his pirate costume and taking him to a couple of houses in the neighborhood, but that's the day he became sick. So we kept him inside, but our neighbor Stephanie brought him over some animal crackers! She's a sweetie! But my chili turned out pretty tasty so that was nice, but I didn't get time to get my costume I was my usual backup, a pirate!

For some more good news...let's see...Some ladies in my ward/neighborhood decided to start up an exercise class in our church building in the mornings four days a week and it has been awesome and so motivating! I haven't been this sore for years and haven't worked out this much since before I was pregnant of last year! My goal is to not gain weight this holiday season and with this exercise group and a little less on the eating I'll reach my goal and I hope to maybe lose a bit too!
