So.......... we have had a blip on the blogging radar!

Dani & Topher had a great Thanksgiving Program at Preschool. But Dani wasn't very Happy about being the Turkey for the skit, she was sure that the other kids who were all Pilgrams and Indians were going to eat her!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Taylor with the Hatch side of the family! The kids had so much fun playing with their cousins, with only one small speed bump, Ellie took a spill in the front yard and ended up with a face full of brick and rock. Leaving her sweet little face a little scratched up! After the turkey had been eaten and the table cleared we all made gingerbread houses with our kids. The kids loved it! Dani loved the icing, Topher loved the Candy, and Alex was all about the ginger bread crumbs!

Turkey Day ended with a few kids sleeping in odd places! Turkey coma strikes again!

The next morning Rich, our the oldest kids, my sister and her family, and Grandpa went out with a dear family friend to hunt for Christmas trees! Rich had NEVER had a really tree and was insistant that we were not having one this year........ until he found the perfect one and brought it back! LOL It was so funny how he changed his mind! Here are a few pictures from that adventure!

Oh ya............. and Grandpa ended the evening with a hair cut from Dani!

When we got Grandmas tree up we got to help her get it decorated!
The boys thought the train was the best thing EVER!!!!

It was the entire family and between group pictures, family pictures, pictures of couples, pictures of just the kids etc... there are over 900!!!! So I have a lot of looking to do! Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did! Dani and her cousins!

Sad News

Pepper was our guinea pig, I posted some pictures of her a few days ago with Topher and we have had her for the past 2 1/2 years. This afternoon the kids got her out, I usually have the cage locked but today it wasn't, when they were done playing with her they "forgot" to put her up and went outside to play, leaving the back door open and letting the dogs in. Lady has always wanted to get Pepper and today she got her chance. By the time I figured out what was going on it was to late and Pepper was on the grass in the back yard, the baby was petting her. I bawled for longer then I want to admit. I know to some it may seem silly but she was a member of the family and I will miss her!

Missing tooth fairy!

Alex lost tooth #2 yesterday! So this morning at 4 am he is in my room frantic! "she still hasn't come mom!" "I've been waiting all night!" Half asleep I stumbled down the hall after him. Told him "She" wouldn't come until after he was asleep just like Santa. I felt awful! If he hadn't woken me up I would have completely forgotten that he had put his tooth under his pillow! So 20 minutes of scrabble on my cell phone and $2.00. we were set!

First thing this morning he is so excited about his two buck! He is tell the little kids all bout how he woke up and the tooth fairy had changed his tooth into a dollar and the plastic bag it was in into another dollar! LOL Since today was half off day at Goodwill that is where he wanted to spend his money! So after a breakfast of Dunkin Donuts, a treat from Daddy for everyone, Alex & I were off!

After a good 20 minutes of cruising the toys, picking things up, keep the ones he wanted to think about he settled on these! LOL Pillow Punching Gloves! What made me laugh is we looked at something similar for Topher for Christmas! He may be getting them now so that we have two pairs!

Alex & Bella From next door!

To be fair!

Dani and I went in the back yard and played with the dogs for a little while last night. Rich and the boys had gone to the car wash to wash the carpets in daddy's car and Ellie was sleeping. So I took advantage and took a few pictures of the dogs. I didn't get any great ones of Lady, she is to quick but here are a few that I took. I took some pictures of Rich's car too! LOL He told me he was going to clean it really good! Little did I know.........

Yes those are his seats, the panels, and his carpets!

The naked car!

My three oldest in what used to be the back seat!

You have to admit that they are cute!

Dolly gave me this look when I playfully growled at her!

Dani gave Jersey some water, then climbed up into the play house with us and before I could stop her she took a drink! Which she promptly spat out and complained about the hair in her mouth! I told her it was her own fault for sharing a cup with the dog! Jersey didn't understand what the fuss was all about!

We have the funniest doges ever! They all love to be on
the trampoline with the kids!
I am wondering if Jersey worked for my
dad in a past life!!! LOL

This is the best shot of Lady that I got and for some reason it can't get it to post the right direction!

So annoying!

Reminiscing.......... Oh how cute they were!
This is Topher and Lady when we first got Lady,
before Dani was born.
This was a few months later. He had hair you just can't tell! LOL He has always been my super blondie! You can't even tell that it is the same dog! She changed a lot!
