It was hot

Which is a much better title than Chargers suck.

82 degrees (felt like 200) which equaled a new hat to shield my eyes from the sun and my shirt off watching from the handicap section for the first half of the game.

The second half cooled down and so did the team. Overtime was the best weather but, well I guess all I can say is that Tebow did good - nice.

Thank you Thomas Family

Every other Thanksgiving is odd when it is the off year. While I missed being with my family and my moms traditions today, we were so blessed to share the day with the Evans, Sauers and Thomas'.

Awesome dinner (particularly my beets and the red cabbage) and incredible pecan pie (Carol, I am now laying in bed craving more). At the risk of being sappy: Kim,  I am thankful beyond belief for your love and friendship.

And I played the role of historian with kims camera, as such I wound up with this as my only pic of the day.

Here's to popsicles :)

I am thankful......

For MJM: My eldest born who is focused, careful and trusting. The girl who wants but is also so willing to give. My kind hearted girl who still believes in the human race. The one I would move to Disneyland with.

For REM: My second child (insert like her mama here) who is driven, loyal and passionate. The one I would take on a deserted island with me.

For CEM: My sidekick: the kid with an old soul, brilliant brain and determined spirit. No one makes me laugh or think harder. The one I would take to battle with me.

All beautiful and all with their own fashion style. My cutest and smartest offspring!

Moms thinking face

CEM is amazing at doing voice imitations. Commercials, cartoons, and movie catch phrases are repeatedly said until just the right inflection gets a laugh.

She has now started facial and gesture impersonation.

Apparently this is the face I make when I am thinking or perplexed that the auto lights are not turning off on the car.

Every one needs an Aunt Tami

CEM had an orchestra concert on Thursday.  I was informed late on Wednesday that a pioneer or Indian costume was required. Once again Tania Attic came to the rescue!

And CEM did great on her viola

I hate Oakley

So I bought new Oakley glasses July. They officially made it less than 4 months. Never have I invested that much money and transitioned to a new pair.

I got two pairs of Guess glasses yesterday and am not having buyers remorse at quickly discarding the other pair that wouldn't stay on my face. The pair that last week after getting adjusted to stay on my face got fractured lens resulting in viewing through lens that looked like Vaseline over them. Fun.

Yes Sara and Diane I do realize my contacts are an option.
