We spent Thanksgiving with my parents, Griffin, Krista, and Rachel at my mom and dad's. I forgot to take any pictures, oops. The day was filled with yummy food and lots of laughs, a typical Delozier family Thanksgiving.

Mike's niece, Jacque, and her cute family came from CA and we were able to see them for a little bit. The kids love their second cousin, Maggie. She is so sweet. Here she is with Cole and Jenna.

Breaking Dawn

I know after this post I may sound like an extreme Twihard but really don't think I am. I have only read the books one time each and I don't own any of the movies, but I have been to a premier the night before for each Twilight movie and last night was no different.
I went at 6 p.m. with some of my friends to a showing that a friend does to raise money and they give out lots of donated prizes and everyone is screaming and crazy. It was SO much fun!!!
Then I went again at midnight with Rylee and some her friends and their moms. It was way fun too!!!
This movie is definitely more intense and graphic, but I really enjoyed it. I don't tend to over analyze the movies probably because I have only read the books once. I think it makes the movies more enjoyable for me since I am really just watching for enjoyment, not to compare the books and movies. I also don't remember all the details of the book and don't have any real preconceived ideas of what the movie should be. I think this was well done and had some cool effects. It also had some cheesy and funny lines and scenes mixed in randomly. I enjoyed it, but it is not a movie for the faint of heart.

Here is Rylee with a couple of her friends before the show:

Our Money's Worth

We have been talking about getting a new van for a long time and have looked on and off. We have not had a car payment for so long, which is so nice, and the van kept chugging along so we waited...
Last Saturday I was driving up a hill in the snow and my van died...when we found out a few days later that it was completely dead we didn't have a choice anymore. So after a few days of seriously looking we found a new van that we hope will last as long as our old one. We had the blue van for 12 1/2 years and we had just passed 198,000 miles so we feel we definitely got our money's worth.

A Baby Shower

Rylee's assistant cheer coach (she is also Cole and Noah's enlgish teacher) is expecting her first child in December. The cheerleaders threw her a baby shower and it was so fun! They are all SO excited she is having a baby girl.

This is the cake one of the moms made:

This is most the girls with both coaches and the blanket they made (in their school colors) for the baby...they made it one morning at practice when she was not there...she loved it!

P.S. Rylee and Jackie are holding babies...they had them for 5 days for a school project.

Sweet Baby Amelia

We were blessed to be a part of Amelia's (my cousin Colby's daughter) baby blessing. I don't know what was more special, the blessing, or being able to hear my grandparents, my parents, my uncle, my cousin and his wife bear their testimonies. I am so glad my children were there to hear so many family members bear testimony and to feel of their spirit.
The next night we were able to have dinner at my parents with a lot of the family again. I love spending time with my family, especially those like my grandparents and aunt and uncle who live in San Diego. I am grateful that my kids get to spend time with extended family and learn from them.

Isn't she so sweet? I was lucky enough to hold her for quite awhile while she slept in my arms. Almost makes me want another one...almost!

All my kids were fighting over who got to hold Amelia next. Jenna especially loves babies. She still keeps asking for a baby at our house. I told her we can just go babysit and hold Amelia.

A Full

Rylee has been working on her full (a layout with a 360 degree twist) and she did a couple private lessons with an awesome coach and now she has it! It's fun to watch her working hard, being completely exhausted and sweaty, and then see the joy in her face when she sticks it!
