I have SO much to be thankful for this year. We have had a ton of life changes this year and I am so grateful for all of them! This year for Thanksgiving we headed over to my sister's for a small dinner with our 2 little families, minus Justin.

Enter sobbs here, and here is my little sob story:
Justin has a total crap schedule for the holidays. Coming into his intern year I knew it was not going to be pretty but we really got the bum end of the deal. Justin was on call yesterday from 6am to 9pm and he will have that same schedule for Christmas Eve and have to be back to work at 6am on Christmas Day. He has been crazy busy at work, even too busy to pee, (seriously, he went all day with out going because he never had time to) So we literally do not get to see Justin at all for the holidays. My luck, he will probably have New Years off, which is, in my opinion, the dumbest holiday on this planet. It ranks up their with St. Patrick's day, a day for the drunks.

Anyway, back to my thankful attitude. My sister and I attempted to make Thanksgiving as special as we knew how and cooked everything. Aside from one pan of rolls getting a little too brown on the bottom, everything was perfect! Kelly did a great job with her first Turkey and the kids had fun playing all day with one another. And although Justin was not with us which was a huge downer for me, I am SO grateful for his job and the many opportunities it will provide for us in the future (that is if Obama care does not ruin it for all the doctors :)

Starting early, it was about midnight when we took this picture, and that big yellow thing was a mustard covered ham that was about to get smoked.
Dinner is served!

Halloween Weekend

With 3 different times that we got candy, the boys were in 7th Heaven with loads of their favorite goodies. We had a great Halloween and the best part was that Grandma and Grandpa Sacks was able to share it with us. We also got to go to the BYU vs TCU game at Cowboy stadium and although the game was once again a frustrating BYU game we still enjoyed almost the whole thing (all except the bad predictable BYU plays and annoying bad reff calls).
Limo ride to the BYU game!
Cowboy Stadium. This is one of those places you have to see to believe. It has the largest TV screen in the world.

Isn't this a complement? Or in other words, your mom is hot, right? Why Thank you.
I have a slight obsession with Bronco. I think he is just divinely yummy.

Notice the ginormous screen above their heads.
BYU proud through thick and thin.
Carter as Melman from Madagascar with Papa.
We went the super hero route this year with Cohen and he loved how "strong" his muscles were when he put this on.
My little Bella-rina. This is my sister's little girl. What a cute cat right?!
This was Carter's expression the whole time he was a lobster. He was not amused.
The happy Halloween crew (mine and my sister's kids).

We went and visited a train station the last day John and Kathi were here. The boys were in Heaven!

IMPOSSIBLE to get these 3 kids to all look at the camera AND smile!
Here is a better idea of the Cowboy stadium.
