Our Sweet Baby is 3

 I can't believe that this little girlie is 3 already! 
 Even though she acts like she is 5, and she thinks she is 15, 3 years has passed like the blink of an eye!
 Don't these look's a good thing that my other kiddos could care less if there is a little slobber on their cupcake.
 Reilynn spent the day doing what she loves best, sitting on the couch with the iPad, having free reign to choose what she wants on Netflix.  No older siblings complaining about too much Dora or Diego.  What more could you ask for on your birthday?....
Silly String.  She was giggling so loud spraying her older brother and sisters.  Happy Birthday cute girl.  We love you so much, and couldn't imagine our family without you in it.

Not the best Thanksgiving!

 It isn't Thanksgiving without a little Turkey Bowl this is how we started our vacation in Mesa.
 It was fun to see all the family, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandad, grandma, great grandma...there isn't anything that can compare to family!
 Here is cute Logan, Preston, and Max.
 Then we had a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner at Grandad and Grandma's house.  Lots of yummy food!
 But then the flu set in Thanksgiving night.  Reilynn started throwing up first, and she continued to throw up for a solid 6 hours...
 Then Addison woke up early that morning throwing up.  Not fun!  Mark had tickets to a football game with some high school friends, and he was reluctant to go when kids weren't feeling great, but I told him we were fine and he headed out Friday morning.
 Friday late afternoon, I started throwing up (First in my brother-in-law's front yard...sorry again Jeff!) and threw up most of the night.  A big thanks to Grandad and Grandma for taking my kids for me!  Then Saturday I felt awful (pregnancy awful), and then Saturday night, Bailey threw up all night.
 We got up Sunday morning, packed the car and started the 19 hour drive home.  Kasidee threw up the first 7 hours of the trip.  We stopped in El Paso for the night, and Mark threw up that whole night in the hotel.  The next day we only made it another 7 hours, with Parker throwing up the last part of the car trip, and we stopped in Kerrville at another hotel.  Parker continued throwing up that night at the hotel.  We drove the last 5 hours, that felt like eternity, but we finally made it home.
I threw up a couple more times when we got home, and I think we finally had it out of all our systems.  Needless to say....we have had better Thanksgivings!
