 We are in Christmas mode now! Kenadee made our first craft of the season. 

I love the moments when everyone is getting along. 

Good thing I had a man in the house so we could set up the Christmas tree! The kids were beyond excited, even though Kolbi is confused why it isn't Christmas right now if the tree is up. 

After setting up Christmas and having friends over at our house, Jackson went over to Owen's house. Emily walked in the door and Anna was giving Jack a shoulder rub. HAHAHA!!! Taylor and I about died!

Some more shopping today. We came home exhausted with achey feet! We did manage to rest on the couches at Macey's though! haha!

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving! My mom is seriously an amazing cook. I was so happy to have her cooking our feast. I tried to help, but let's be honest, my mom made it all. :)  It was SO yummy! We stuffed ourselves. Jackson even had 3 servings of her home made stuffing. SOOOO good! This is also my year every to have left overs from Thanksgiving. I'm just as excited to eat those in the coming days. 

I've been really excited to show my mom Black Friday shopping Utah style. It's kinda insane and super busy, but I love it. We got some good deals and everything I was hoping to get. I'm never after anything big, like all the electronic stuff, but I still love saving money on the things I'm going to buy anyway.

I woke up to one happy boy! $3 and pack of his own gum. I love the pure happiness on his face!

We took advantage of the decent weather and the free day at Hogle Zoo. It was nice to walk around and be together. I sure have some good kids!! It was awesome to have my mom ( and even Taylor) along for the company too. :)

Time to go home today. I sure do miss the kids, but it was awesome to get away for these days and know the kids were cared for and having fun!

Miss Kolbi missed me like crazy! She couldn't stop giving me hugs and probably told me 50 times today that she loved me. It was so sweet! I'm glad she's my friend!

The day before we left, Fisher noticed he had two loose teeth. I was kinda sad and was sure we'd miss him losing his first teeth. But, he carefully tried to not use those teeth so they wouldn't fall out until we came home. The first one came out really easily. He wasn't sure what to think, and just stood there in shock. I told Fisher that I heard the Tooth Fairy pays big if he looses TWO tooth in the same day and especially if it's his first teeth. After lots of prying and help from Taylor, it came out too! He was SO excited to see what the Tooth Fairy would leave for him.

Today we went to the movie. We watched All Is Lost. It. Was. Horrible. I honestly can't stress it enough. Don't waste your money. It's not even worth renting. I'm not sure why it got such good reviews. SO dumb and boring.

Sunday started out early with being at my cousin's mission farewell at 8:30. Almost every aunt and uncle was there, plus a dozen or so cousins. It was awesome to see everyone there!
some had already left before we took this picture...

OH. MAN! The time has finally come! The Colts game is here! We got there plenty early and walked around and was part of the atmosphere before they opened the gates. 

So awesome. I really don't think Colt's games will ever get old. It is so fun! We loved watching the players run onto the field and get as close as we could to watch them the athletes warm up. 

The Colts got killed! 11-40. :(  The Cardinals played the best game in probably 10 years (according to my dad….)  Taylor and I are determined to watch a game IN Indianapolis. One day! It was insane how quiet the crowd was while the Cardinals were on offense. Then crazy loud as the Colts were about to snap the ball. Even thought game wasn't how we wanted it to go, it was still a great experience to be there and see it in person!

We did a little shopping today. Taylor was hoping to find a new Colts hat, but wasn't very successful. 

My Dad took us all out to Texas Roadhouse for our birthday dinner. We freaking stuffed ourselves! 

Clint and Tasha got a game from our childhood from ebay. It's called The Farming Game. It's kind of like Monopoly, but farming/produce in Washington. Us girls had fun! ha!! :)

Today we set up a last minute lunch with a bunch of my Malone family. We made my mom really jealous and text her this picture of us all. 
Clint, Natasha, Taylor, me, Uncle David, Aunt Jacque, Aunt Lisa, Grandma, and Aunt Kathy. We sat here for a few hours to catch up with each other and laughed at each other. 

My dad came down from the ranch today. It was really good to see him!

Clint and Natasha had an ultrasound today and found out their having a little BOY! I'm so excited for them! Most importantly though, the baby looks healthy and is measuring on date. I can't wait to meet my new nephew!

Awww. Twins!

My mom flew into town tonight to take care of the kids for the rest of our trip. She's even staying through Thanksgiving! It's been fun sending pictures back and forth to see what we've both been doing.
