This year for Thanksgiving, we are going to the Marriott Resort and Spa in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. I am so excited! No cooking or cleaning - just showing up at the restaurant and ordering your food. How great is that?

We are having a family reunion and I am looking forward to good company and good food!

Poor Brian will not be in attendance, he has to work the day before and after Thanksgiving. He will be enjoying turkey with his parents in Olive Branch.

I will be thinking of him while I am at the spa :)

My friend Jennifer tagged me. This is so easy and cute!

Here are the rules:

1. Choose the 4th picture folder on my computer
2. Choose the 4th picture
3. Explain the picture
4. Tag 4 people to do the same.

This is from Emi's first trip to Destin. We were at the indoor pool because it was raining, of course! She loved to float around in that thing, all she needed was a pink drink with an umbrella!

Carving Pumpkins

Every year I get so excited to go to the pumpkin patch and pick out pumpkins to carve, I even made Brian do this before we had kids. So, off we went the the pumpkin patch and picked out:
1 large pumpkin - Daddy
1 medium pumpkin - Mommy
1 little girl pumpkin - Emi
1 baby pumpkin - Jack

The carving day quickly approached, we set everything up outside and got started. After doing one pumpkin, I was totally over it and was wondering what the heck I had gotten myself into. Now I know why my parents never carved pumpkins for themselves, and why they only did ours. But, we pushed forward and got all 4 of them cleaned out and carved. They did look pretty cute, if you want my totally unbiased opinion. We let Emi draw on hers with markers and after about 2 minutes she was totally over having anything do to with a pumpkin - maybe next year she will have a little more "pumpkin enthusiasm".
