Deck the Halls

That title would actually be more fitting for my sis and her mate. Alas, I have no clever quips using my own name.
Tadd and I brought a bit of Christmas spirit into our home this weekend, I feel so jolly!

As for the clock...Father Time?

The Most Important

Today is Thanksgiving, and since I've thoroughly slacked on posting three things I'm grateful for each day, I wanted to list today the three most important things in my life that I am most thankful for.

1. The Gospel. Where would I be without it? It's so comforting to know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and cares for me. He wants to see me happy, and has created a plan for me to be eternally happy. I'm so thankful for the gift of prayer. I feel so blessed to have the ability to speak with Him anytime I please, and furthermore, knowing that He will answer me in due time is such an immense blessing. I'm so grateful for Jesus Christ, and what He sacrificed to allow me eternal happiness. The atonement is such an amazing gift!

2. My Family. I have not one, but two wonderful families. I don't even know where to start with this one! Bottom line: I have a rockin' family, and I am so blessed to have awesome in-laws! I truly enjoy the time I get to spend with both families, and I lucked out even more to have them both nearby! I love each and every member of my family for too many reasons to list!

3. My Husband. There is so much I could say about Tadd, but I'll start to get all mushy and weepy, so it's best to keep this short. I love Tadd with all my heart, and feel so lucky to be loved unconditionally by him. I am his sweetheart, and he is mine. Tadd is so kind, and soft spoken. He has never raised his voice at me, and although may not be the most sentimental or thoughtful person (bless his heart), I always know my best interest is in his mind, and all he's trying to do is love me more and more. Tadd is so patient, which can't be said about myself, and is a constant example to me of patience, giving and love. I'm so grateful I'm stuck with this man!

Boys vs. Girls

I am about to end the suspense from THIS post.

Our team dazzled the distributors with a good old fashioned DANCE OFF! Let me introduce you to the dudes:

(Excuse me for not narrating these photos, PS there are millions, but you'll find they speak for themselves)

I apologize for those of you that do not think these pictures are hilarious...because they are. White boys shakin' their thang and calling to the crowd "What yo momma said!"

Now let me introduce you to the ladies of the Sales Team...
Now you must understand the office rivalry we've created since our last regional meeting in January...we had to settle it ONCE AND FOR ALL!
Anticipating the crowd's choice after a requested encore...

...
and the GIRL'S walk away triumphant! Hands down!
Ahhh...victory is a sweet, sweet thing.

Special Day!

Two wonderful things happened today

1. I filled up my car for under $30!
2. I found a hidden $20 bill in my wallet!

Come Back!

Dear Whethan, Jacky and Vanner:

I miss you dearly, and California is so far away. Please come back to the (soon to be) snowy mountains - Jack loves the snow. I promise to entertain Ethan more often, and to change at least one of Van's diapers. I'll eat whatever you make, Whitney, even peanut butter goodies. I miss you.

Love,

Aunt Kitten
