Hello! Melanie told me I needed to update my blog so here it is. We had a great Thanksgiving. I cooked and had the Potts' family over. I didn't burn the Turkey which was an accomplishment. The kids enjoyed the whole day especially the parade. On Friday we went to L'burg and visited with Jean Carol and we got to meet Baby Alex. He is gorgeous and very sweet. The kids had a blast playing with Skylar and Jaryn.

I had to work Sat and Sun, but John and the kids put the Christmas tree together on Sat and when I got home from work we decorated it. I think this year will be the worst year yet with the tree. They won't leave it alone!

I took them outside and took pictures with a string of lights. They were not very cooperative, but a couple turned out.

Today we decorated outside and cleaned the house. Needless to say the kids are very excited about Christmas. Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

This is Caroline giving John a "makeover". She gave me one earlier. It includes makeup, hair, and lotioned hands. Isn't she hillarious?

New York, New York

I got to go to New York City my last night in Jersey. Oh my goodness....I had so much fun inspite of feeling really bad. I have a sinus infection I think and starting feeling bad on tuesday! But I loaded up on meds and headed into the city.

There were 5 of us that went. Kathy had lived in New York for 3 years so she made us feel better and safer. I can not put into words what it was like. It is awesome. We took a bus tour that lasted 3 hours. The only thing we didn't see was Central Park. Ground zero was very moving! It just has a different feeling than the rest of the city. WE started in Time Square. That was beautiful. The lights are crazy. They are everywhere. I took pics but they didn't really come out that good. I can't wait to go back and get to see it during the day and go to the museums, the parks, statue of Liberty, and other things that are better during the day.

My trip was successful, although I'm very glad to be home. The kids met me at the airport and ran and jumped on me. I was very excited to see them. I hope you enjoy the pictures from New York.

I'm here!

Just a quick note to let everyone know I arrived in New Jersey. If you didn't know about my trip I am going to EK Success (probably the biggest scrapbooking company) to receive my certification in Scrapbooking Design and U classes. This will enable me to teach these classes at the store. I will be here until Wednesday. I miss my family, but am excited about the opportunity.

When I have time I will download pics from Halloween.
