Quick update

It has been a while since I posted but, not a whole lot has happened so you aren't missing out! :) We are in the process of moving so that has been time consuming this week. We are just moving to a bigger unit in the same complex, not a big move but a move none the less and it still takes time! BLAH, but hopefully I am almost done. I keep thinking that and somehow more stuff shows up. haha It will be nice to be done.

We are headed to Utah next week for Thanksgiving and I am so excited, I just don't think I am going to have enough time to do or see everything I want to. Such is life. I am just excited for the break and to see family.

We did one last hoorah for the summer and my sister in law and I took our kids to Elitch Gardens, it is a theme park here in Denver that we had bought season passes for (just before I found out I was pregnant so I wasn't able to go on any rides all summer :( oh well) it was such a fun day, I think my sister in law is super woman. She took FIVE kids! I was struggling with one! Here are a few pictures, enjoy!

This is Morgan and her cousin Peyton. They are getting ready to go on a ride that is similar to Tower or Terror. It takes you up and then drops you. I was a little nervous to see how she would do but it was in the kiddie park and she loved mother like daughter. :)

We kept telling them to raise their arms, I think they were a little confused .

Here they are on the ride with cousin Dallin sitting on the end.

Getting ready to fly!

What would we do without cousin Ashlynn? She was an AMAZING help that day!

This is one of Morgans favorite rides.

She also really really liked the swings, we may have to buy a pass next summer...we will see.

This was also a piece of exciting news that I forgot to blog about. Jeff and his softball team took 2nd place this season! They only lost one game...honestly about half of their players were gone that game so maybe next time they will get first! It was a fun season and we are looking forward to next year!

All right, well I am off. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It has been a good one for us and we have SOOO much to be Thankful for! Don't get me wrong, this has been a rough year in a lot of ways and some days I get frustrated but I try and count my blessings and it is amazing that I can even 'get down' because we are so blessed. I think I am going to start a new tradition for Thanksgiving that I just recently heard and thought it was a great idea and thought I would share. This family gets a container and cuts up strips of paper and has it is a convenient spot in their home and when they are thankful for something they write it down and put it in the container. The week of Thanksgiving they pull out all the papers and read them together and make a paper chain around the house to remind them of their blessings. What a good idea huh!

Okay, I didn't even notice the big bum. Now I have to go back and look. Maybe it was mine. Ha Ha! I love Elitchs. We used to go there all the time, when we went to visit my Grandma. She lives in NorthGlenn, or Northglen, or North Glen. Whatever. I agree that take it easy moving. I have moved twice while pregnant, and it stinks. Have a great Thanksgiving.
