week of moving, shopping and thanks

The pictures are mumbled and jumbled together but in a nutshell this is what last week was like. My parents came up from sunny California to celebrate Thanksgiving with us and to help my sister Leanna and her family move. I spent a lot of time with my Mom and Dad as we went grocery shopping, holiday shopping, and what have you. I miss them dearly and would love to live closer to them.
Thanksgiving was beautiful and went smoothly. Usually the Thanksgiving feast back home involves over 40 people and it's crazy. We had a small, quaint feast with my parents, Leanna and Ernesto, Katie and my little family. We went around saying what we're thankful for and all of us girls started crying, as usual!! It was a rough week with my sister and her family getting ready to move to Chile. But that's for another post!

First task of the day,,, clean up quick oats on the floor!
I took this picture a few minutes after I started sweeping, the oats were everywhere!!!
A nickname me and my husband gave little Charlie is 'little RASCAL!'
I think you can see why!!

Well, good morning Wednesday and hope the day gets a little better!!

halloween this year

{ some of Charlies' nursery friends from the ward}

The night before Halloween our ward had a party and we had a great time! We sat by the Barrier and the Jones family while we ate our chili and cornbread. Little Charlie made such a cute Charlie Brown and everyone seemed to like his outfit. However, only 2 people recognized me and my husband's characters... Linus and Peppermint Patty from the Peanuts. Perhaps it was our terrible costumes or just that no one has seen the Peanuts for over 20 years and are a bit rusty on the characters! We did not take pictures of us in our costumes because I forgot but I will describe my costume to you all. I had a green striped shirt like Peppermint Patty, I put freckles on my cheeks, made my bangs look just like hers and I even wore flip flops!! My husband wore a red shirt and carried a blanket and called it good. Oh well, maybe next year we will all go as characters that everyone is familiar with!!
