So, it's been a rough couple of weeks in our house. It's awfully hard to be thankful in the rough times for all that we've been given. So, since it's the start of a fresh new week, I'm going to list a few things that I'm have made me smile this week.

1*Taking the kids to Despicable Me and listening to them giggle at the funny parts
2*Hearing how much fun the kids had picking apples from the neighbors tree
3*Taking all the kids to pick out Halloween costumes and watching them give a runway show for us and Grandpa and Teresa
4*Having a husband that cleans up kid vomit at 2 am with me (the wretching coming from him was making me laugh at that ungodly hour!!!!)
5*Listening to Brooklyn sing to herself a made up potty song while she tinkles
6*The happy smile Kaden has on his face every morning when he wakes up, comes to my doorway, waves his little hand and says "Hi Mom"
7*The return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte to Starbucks and the friend from out of town that I got to visit with while sipping it
8*Watching Brooklyn go through a bag of hand me downs like it was Christmas
9*Listening to Jackson auction off and ISU Pendant at the Scarecrow auction
10*Smelling the heaters warm up when I turned them on today because I couldn't stand the cold one second longer!!!!

What's made you happy this last week???? Hope everyone smiles lots and feels the warmth and love of family and friends this week!!!

Christmas List.....

I have started my Christmas List!!!! Have you???? Of course my kids wish lists come true way before mine, but I wanted to give everyone a little peek of the few things I will be asking Santa for this year.....

These adorable pink Dansco clogs for work!!! Plus with the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon, I love them even more!!!! Portneuf is having us go to plain ole boring blue scrubs when the new hospital opens, so I think I need a sassy pair of shoes to jazz up the blue a little!!!!

Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Perfume....smells sooo good!!!

Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy and Uzi and many more!!!

Mindy Gledhill's new CD....have you heard it???? Love her song Hourglass...and it's All About Your Heart....and basically the whole CD......
What's on your list?????

Jenny Lake.....

A couple of weeks ago I surprised Jason with a trip to Jackson Hole. We went for the day, hiked around Jenny Lake, ate at Merry Piglets, walked around town a bit and then headed home. I love day dates!!! It was an absolutely beautiful drive up through Alpine. All the the trees were changing and so the colors was amazing!!! I'd love to take the kids for a day!!! Maybe next year.

Here we are at the top of the Look out point, overlooking Jenny Lake
At the waterfall

Love the Tetons!!!!

The weather that day was super!!! Our sweatshirts came off shortly after we started the hike. It was so sunny and the fresh air was fabulous!!!! Thanks for spending the day with me babe!!!! Great memories!!!
