Early christmas

We had early Christmas with Papee and Memee ( Earl's Parents) yesterday. Poor Elizabeth has had a stomach virus and was under the weather as you can see in the pictures. His parents are down for a cousins wedding which is tomorrow. Weird ironic or what but tomorrow is our 11th wedding anniversary, it is also his parents anniversary and now a cousin is getting married tomorrow at the same place we got married. It must be a family date to wed.

Duluth Festival

The town of Duluth had a Christmas Festival. The kids enjoyed fun activities and yet the best was the Bake off contest. Lauren and I entered the kids in the kids bake off contest together. We made "I want s'more cookies". The first place winner received $100 , 2nd $50 and 3rd $25. Well they won first prize. So we took them to the toy store together to spend their winnings. They were so excited.

Where does time go???

I can not believe it has been a month since I last posted and ashamed to say I haven't even taken one picture. Yes, not one picture was taken at Thanksgiving, but we had a wonderful time at Earl's parents home. Ok, now for my excuse. I am going back to work and looking forward to it. I will be working 3 days 12 hour shifts. Ask me in 6 months and I may have a different tone. Anyhow, I spent the holiday in my pharmacology book trying to cram what I learned in a semester into one week. The Monday after the holiday I had to take a drug administration test and I sure was nervous. I haven't taken a test in years. You have to make an 85 or higher so there is little room for error. Well , I have that behind me and a lot more learning to do, but the next test is to see where they need to begin with my orientation, so the pressure is not so intense. I am going to be on a cardiology unit so I have my books out and starting to study what I learned 10 or 11 years ago. Anyhow, I am excited and anxious to get started. Of course, I delayed the start until after Christmas. Hopefully, my postings will not get to far behind.

Oh my, Vaseline.....

What can you do with Vaseline? Well, Alexandria thought putting it in her hair would be good, however I have washed it 3 times and it looks like she has wet hair. Any ideas????

Fall gathering....

There was a fall gathering at Alvin and Joann's last weekend and it is always a special treat. Kids enjoyed horse drawn buggy rides and petting rabbits and feeding goats. There must have been 250-300 people. They do it every year and as you can see everyone enjoys it.


The little trick-or-treaters. A scarecrow, ninja, flower , and cat.

It Is a Boy....

Daniel and Cindy had their precious little boy today. Liam Chandler, 7lb 10 oz., 20" He has a full head of black hair, well for now anyway. It was so cute Noah kept saying " I want to see my brother". Addison seemed to be enjoying her full attention from her grandparents.

Recent photos...

Elizabeth putting a diaper on her cat. Poor cat. Well, the cat had wet on Elizabeth's bed so she thought she would fix the problem. That is what happens when you lock a cat in your room.
I just love this picture of these three. Will, Alexandria and Elizaabeth.

Basil Rolls....

You may have noticed thru out my blog that I mention how I love Thai food, well I decided I would take on the challenge and learn to make Basil rolls. They turned out great and now it is part of our supper several nights a week. It takes a little bit of work to learn how to do the wraps but other than that it is simple. There is a lot of cutting up which include carrots, cucumber, red pepper, lettuce, basil leaf, minced chicken and cooked tofu. Yummy!!!!!

I've Been Tagged.....

Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of each post by leaving their names & links. let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. Due to cholesterol issues at our house chicken is all I cook. Tired of chicken and please no chicken. Any great ideas on recipes?

2. Always thought I would have 3 kids until I had 1 now I have 2 and i'm done.

3. I love Thai food and could eat it every day.

4. I have started playing tennis again and it is a great out for me.

5. I met my husband when I was 18 and he made a comment that made me mad so I wouldn't talk to him for 4 years. Then 4 years later he came up and spoke to me and called me that night to ask me out. Now here we are married 10 1/2 years.

6. I am a triplet and I didn't like it when everyone had their descriptions of how to tell us apart.
Me (face is longer ) - Egg shape face
shelley - round face
alison. - the little one
Remembers this when you compare twins, or plus.

7. Who wants to do laundry. Not ME.

I tag: Cindy, Becky, Tamara, Amy, Jenny, Lauren, Jaime

Ok., Ok, Ok,....

I have been bad about blogging lately, but I will say I have been way to busy to sit down and do it. School started last week which has been nice. I love routine. Elizabeth loves her school and teacher. She is always ready to get up and go but reminds me she is ready to be picked up also. Every morning she talks about snow and wants winter to come to see if we might get some this year, but I am looking forward to fall first. Well , I have been tagged so lets see what I come up with. For now. love, Teresa

A Weekend at the lake

This past weekend Mark and Lauren invited us to go with them to her parents lake house. It is a special treat . It is in the north Georgia mountains, very cool and quite. Elizabeth skied with Lauren as you can see in the two first pictures. The kids were in the water from the time we got there until we left. Rafting was a favorite of theirs.

We enjoyed a week trip with my whole family to Rosemary Beach Florida. It was great. The kids are having withdrawel this week from not being together now. I will post pictures later but I am sure Shelley's link will have more than I could post being she took most all of the pictures.
