Pre-Thanksgiving

I had such a nice time tonight!  The kids and I just got back from a pre-Thanksgiving day dinner at my parent's house.  My grandma and grandpa were also there, along with my step-sister Amber and her boyfriend.  My dad recently acquired a full-size casino poker machine from a side job he did in Pahrump last month, so of course we all went crazy playing on that thing.  At one point I walked into the room, and he was teaching Trinity and Elijah how to play video poker.  I was like, "Awwww, that's so precious.  Now my kids are going to be gambling away their tooth fairy money."  After piddling away all of our nickels (I think I'm down $1.25), we had spaghetti for dinner and then played on the Wii.  I got my mom to play Just Dance for the first time, and that was hilarious.  Now I see where I get my lack of coordination from.


Here's me and Shannon with my mom and dad at the Trunk-or-Treat last month.  I think this is the very first photo of the four of us that I have ever put on this blog (and of course my mom just happens to be wearing some bloody, gruesome apron).  I'm really going to miss all of them tomorrow.

I think I might give Grimm another try now.  Okay, here goes.  Eeeeeeeek.  Wish me luck.

Oh yeah, Happy Thanksgiving!
