A few highlights from our Thanksgiving this year:  We got to spend it with the Ybarras (Auntie, Uncle and cousins) and my Grandparents!  There was delicious food and we experienced yams with caramelized pecans and marshmallows!  Holy yum!  We watched movies, laughed, ventured out to Walmart for black Friday and just enjoyed each other.  Hope everyone had an equally as happy Thanksgiving!

Take a bite out of crime!

I'm really grateful this Thanksgiving that Teton Valley has a very low crime rate, because if we had left our garage door open and the door into the house unlocked for two days almost anywhere else, we would have been cleaned out!!!!  Our neighbor dog ate some trash, but that was the extent of the damage!  Thank heavens!!!!  My Hubby was ready to rip my head off and then he realized that the garage didn't shut because he left the snow shovel in front of the censor--silly boy!!!

I'm so thankful for my family--my wonderful Husband and my beautiful baby boy.
I'm thankful for each and every member of mine and Taylor's families.
I'm thankful for my wonderful friends.
I'm thankful for our home.
I'm thankful for clothes on our backs and for our health.
I'm thankful for freedom and for this breathtaking world we live in and even more grateful for the opportunity to go out and discover it.

Anson is such a mild little boy and sometimes I brag about it (not to other Moms)-- I just get frustrated real easily when he's hard, because he is usually so easy going. Well, this week karma smacked me right in the face!  I'll show you says Karma!  We watched a lot of Yo Gabba Gabba! this week, because it couldn't be avoided.  We were out of town and therefore there was nothing else for Anson to do other than get into trouble (no child proofing), so to the front of the t.v. (portable dvd player) he went!  He turned into a devil child!  Temper tantrums like you wouldn't believe, destroying things just to make me mad, hitting and scratching me and very, very poor listening skills!  Time for a Yo Gabba Gabba fast!

He's lucky that he's cute, cause if he wasn't I'd have locked the door and thrown away the key!  Not really!  The t.v. has been off all day and he has already improved.  Crazy...
