Thanksgiving Feast and Bath time

Today was A's "Thanksgiving Feast" at preschool and the parents got to come and participate. She was so proud of her little place mat she made.

Sporting her Indian hat with the feather in the back. How cute!

"Mom, I am too busy socializing to look at the camera!"

She was so funny tonight during bath time. She kept cracking herself up by putting this silly bucket on her head.

I love this age! 2 1/2 year olds have so much fun!

The Pioneer Woman

I ran across this sight a few weeks ago and I have noticed several friends already have the link on their blog roll...but I am hooked and wanted to share! Its called The Pioneer Woman...this chick is SUPERWOMAN and I want to be just like her!...she is a city girl that lives on a working ranch with her 4 kids and cowboy husband she calls Marlboro Man. She's an inventive cook, she's an amazing photographer, she does neat-o home and garden projects, and she writes hilarious stories, serious stories, and love stories...You have to check her out! You will want to be just like her too (unless you are a boy!!)

Cheers to Us!

November 2 marked 6 years of marriage for us....To celebrate, R took me to Hotel ZaZa in Dallas for a little in town get-a-way.

Excuse the cheesiness of the self-portrait below

ZaZa doesn't miss a detail. Even though we booked our room on and saved over 50% on the room rate, we were still treated like royalty. This is what we found when we came back to our room after dinner.
How sweet it is!! The candles and candy around the room were such a special touch! So CHEERS to us and to many more years of happiness.

Like I have the time... read books for fun that don't have to do with nursing, I picked up TWILIGHT the other day to read. Great. Just what I needed. Now I can't put it down. I was really sceptical of this series because I am a big Harry Potter fan. I know this may sound crazy/obsessive, but I didn't (and don't) want any other series to replace my love for Potter. A good friend of mine said she wouldn't let herself compare. I agree. They may be *almost* as good...but since we talked about The Shack last time, I want to know who has read this series. I admit it. I'm hooked!

Book Review

Have you heard of this book?? Russell picked up a copy a month or so ago after it came highly recommend by several friends. I immediately became interested and started reading it. I have to tell you, this is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It reads like a prayer and gives you a beautiful perspective into the nature of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit and brings together in a digestible nature how they are One. I loved how it showed that our spiritual growth and understanding is a continual process and that while we may not understand why things happen the way they do initially, eventually we will unravel it if we stick with the Father. The Shack is a work of fiction, but I firmly believe that God uses all kinds of avenues to reveal Himself to us. I challenge you to pick up a copy and read it for yourself. If you have read it, tell me what you think. I would love to hear other opinions!

No matter who you voted for...

I think it's amazing an African American is our president. Our children will never second guess if someone who has a different colored skin as them can achieve the same goals.
