Thanksgiving and other Exciting News

Isn't Kathryn the Cutest little baby ever!

We had a great Thanksgiving this year with my family. We usually have traveled to Snowflake after my parents afternoon dinner but this year we didn't go. Mostly because we just were up there a couple weeks ago for John and Micah's reception. But it was so nice to have a long weekend at home.

Anyway, Thanksgiving day was great. I got to make the mashed potatoes and I even peeled all the potatoes and put butter, cream cheese and sourcream in it. And a few grilled onions. I got the somewhat recipe from Barbara, Matt's cousin. I think they turned out great. And I made my Pumpkin CheeseCake as well. Gotta do that!

We had a great dinner and before everyone got there we played Blockus with my mom and dad. It was a fun game. I 'm glad we made that purchase. I think our family should start a new tradition of playing lots of games before and after Thanksgiving.

After Dinner we came home and took really long naps. Even Kathryn let us take naps.

Matt worked on the website most of Friday and Saturday. But IT IS FINALLY FINISHED AND WE CAN START SENDING OUT INVITATIONS TO HOSTING COMPANIES. I'm so excited to get this rolling and start earning the income that it will bring in. Hopefully it will be enough to get us on our own ie out of grannys house!!!

We put up the Christmas Tree and lights that weekend. I watched Rachel's Kids and they liked helping me with the lights. Paige liked the big puddle in the back that hadn't gone away from the big rain the other night.

I Love Christmas and everything about it. I just need to get Matthew into the christmas spirit. He's my little humbug that doesn't like christmas music or getting gifts. Well to bad dear your going to get some fun gifts!! he he he

And some more exciting news of the family, my older sister Melissa got married on the 3rd after being engaged for 4 years. it was out of the blue sort of. Stefan called her up on his way home from work and said we're getting married get dressed and call the girls. So they went and got the license and tried to find a judge. They called my parents and luckily they did as they were the witnesses or it wouldn't have worked. Melissa said it was a great feeling standing there with her girls and Damien hugging her getting married to the man she loves. When I found out I told them they had to come over for Wedding cake. So they did and I made a heart cake and frosted it. And they did the traditional cake in the face. It was hilarious. Sorry but Stefan won that one fair and square.

Congratulations Melissa and Stefan Welcome to the family Stefan! Complete again. 5 brothers in law, I've always wanted brothers and now I got 5 of them.
