Last night, I was downstairs getting some things done and all I could hear was slamming onto the floor upstairs. Finally, I yelled for the monsters to stop. Right away, Kaydon and Brooklyn came downstairs and told me they had to show me something. Kaydon had been showing Brooklyn some wrestling moves. She was REALLY good at what Kaydon taught her! Kaydon was SO proud of her! He is such a good big brother. Well, once that little show was over, she told Kaydon to pull out her dollie house so that she could then show him how to play "house." Kaydon sat there very patiently while she taught him everything there was to know. It was one of those priceless moments where I sat on the couch in pure bliss, knowing that my home was full of my five children who were happy and healthy.

With wrestling season here, this is my view for the next several months:

My cute co-worker, LeAnne, made this thankful banner for me. She is super talented and I was SO excited that she made this for me!

Sunday night, we went to my parent's house for Thanksgiving dinner. It was very, very nummy! It was a pirate-themed Thanksgiving dinner because they announced that we are going on a family cruise in January! All of the adults already knew about it, because there has been lots of planning going on. Jackson also knew. But the rest of the kiddos found out on Sunday. It was so fun to watch their reaction and to hear them planning what their activities will be. Amanda is not allowing Brooklyn to go with us so tears and sobs were a part of the party. But Papa and Grandma promised to take Brooklyn on an amazing one-on-one before we go cruising. She loves Papa and Grandma! She wanted Papa to hold her and he got lots of cuddles out of him. I'm pretty sure he lives for that. I do too. So, off to the Bahamas and St. Marten we go in January!

Wrestling season is here and I could not be happier. Layton High School hosted a little league tournament on Saturday. The three older boys were at the school bright and early (7 am), ready to run the concessions with Terry! Colton, Brooklyn and I arrived at about 9 am. We helped in the concessions, found parents of lost children, made sure the scorers had what they needed, and held babies. :)

I am really behind on blogging. Life has been unexpectedly stressful and I find myself in "one foot in front of the other" mode right now. On Halloween, we were kidless. It was weird, and not in a good way. The boys had a Halloween sleepover at my parents house and Brooklyn was with her mom until 9 pm. Josh and I went to Farmington Station and ate sushi, walked around, bought me some new pajamas at Old Navy (which are AMAZING), and sat by a hot outside fireplace. If you haven't been to Farmington Station, I strongly suggest you go. It's a great place for hanging out, eating, and shopping. They have a fountains that are set to music with colors and beauty. In the winter, they have a little outside ice rink. There are stores there that are no place else. It's a great place to go, and it was a beautiful night!
