Phone Call

So I get a phone call this morning, and after I talk to whoever it was I notice I had missed a call from my hubster. He had called ridiculously early...he should know better, which is why I had missed the call. (and FYI it was 7:50 when he called. And yes I was awake just not downstairs and NO it's not actually ridiculously early...just a little early).

So I call him back. He tells me:

"I've got to stop trying to win all these Bronco tickets hunny. I just won another pair of CLUB level tickets to the Broncos/Texans game!"

So yes, my husband was caller number 8 out of who knows how many....he should have known, 8 is my lucky number! So it looks like we'll be going to a Broncos game December 26th! Sorry mom and dad, we'll have to come out on the 27th instead!!

I told him he's allowed to try to win tickets once a season. I think that's fair :) After all, 2 out of 2 times he's tried, he's won. Let's make sure we give other people a chance!

Can't wait to see me some of this. And not be hugely pregnant this time!

Oh and he's entered into the contest to be on the field for the coin toss. Cross your fingers for him!

Thankful - Part.....final

Not that I'm not thankful for anything else, just that I'll move on after this post :) It's part of Themed Thursday that I didn't link up to, but I'm thankful just the same. Enjoy...

Glade scented spray that makes my house smell like Christmas (even if it doesn't last long)

A mirror I found at the thrift store for $9 bones. You know what they say..."One man's toxic sludge is another man's potpourri"
(name that movie)

Nativity Scenes

Christmas decorations (these are the old stockings, making new ones this week, can't WAIT)

Christmas dresses and yes there will be a picture of her in it...once I make a headband to match :)

Warm piggie jammies for my lil' porkchop. Yes that's her nickname because she eats so dang much. Hopefully we break this nickname by the time she's like 12. And feel free to ignore the disgruntled face in the back. He was watching the Bronco game. 'Nuff said.

And for brother's who try to help along smiles :)

And for a boy who after a day of CRABBY. Finally smiled. A little.

Another Nativity..this one Kai arranged. And I love it.

AND last but certainly NOT least. This CD. It is so Christmas and I love it. And Mom and Dad, I think you'd like it too..even if it is.....GULP.....Christmas music...shudder. Buy it. Listen to it. Love it.

Thankful - Part 1

This week I'll be putting up pictures everyday of things I'm thankful for.

Today I'm thankful for this little girl who Heavenly Father blessed us with...and for milk drops on cheeks

I'm also thankful for my first born, who will always pose for me and enjoys and shares my photography interest

(yes this is one of his actual poses)

And maybe for this guy too.

I'm so thankful for my family :)

Themed Thursday...ish

Ok, so it's on Friday because I didn't have my card reader thingy until last night, at which point I was too lazy to do it. So here is my Themed Thursday. The challenge was Out of Focus. We could take it anyway we wanted, whether it be a part of a picture, subject, whatev. I bet you can't guess what's on my mind by the pictures I took....

I had to switch from autofocus to manual to get these, the camera wouldn't NOT focus! Of course.

And I promise I'm not peeping through other people's windows...this the reflection of our tree in a couple of our different living room windows! Cameron thought I was a peeper...

And I'm not sure if I like this last one...but it sure is out of focus :)

Next week's theme is I'm Thankful. Take pics of anything you're thankful for. It's not too late to join in on these! It's fun to get outside the picture box :)

Sheesh it's Thursday again!! Time for another themed Thursday. This IS a current picture I took this week, but it was the only one. Due to going out of town and planning a crazy ward activity I've been busy! But it was fun to try and find something yellow that I didn't notice before. Here we go!

Themed Thursday

My sister in law's friend Alyssa does photography and she has started a new thursday party...Themed Thursday's. This weeks theme is Fall. I have to say I wasn't very original, and I didn't exactly adhere to the rules, as most of these pics are a week or two old, but it's a start! Next week is Yellow....I'm excited to stretch my brain :) Enjoy Fall!

Carved Pumpkins (Kai's and mine)

Beautiful turning leaves

Basking in cool mountain air

Fallen Leaves

Pockets of color

Corn Mazes :)

I have LOVED this fall, and love that it's still continuing with 70 degree weather! Don't be afraid to join up, it's a fun excuse to get out your camera and practice!

Monday Night FHE

So Monday for our family home evening activity we went bowling at Fun City. M-Th they have dollar bowling and dollar shoes. Can't beat that! Kai LOVED it, only the second time he's been bowling. He beat dad too the first game!

Some serious skills....

Minus the gutterball!

He would set the ball on the ramp and then take a running start to it...stop and push it. Goof.

Nice form Dad

Nicer form Mom hehe!!

First game scores (M stands for mom, in case you were wondering who ROCKED THE HOUSE)

And Cody, Susan and Alisa...that's an HONEST score this time!!

Second Game scores....going into the 10th frame...

Final score....

I BUCKLED!!! I was so disappointed in myself :( !!! But it was a fun night and I have motivation for next time :)
