Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday!

We had a nice Thanksgiving with Travis' family this year. We spent Thanksgiving night waiting outside in the cold at Toys R Us, and then pushing and clawing our way through Walmart. Nothing says Happy Holidays like a rumble over sheets!

Elephants and Dinosaurs

Disney Land!

In September we went to Disneyland with Travis' family.
Lincoln was in heaven! He wasn't sure if he liked the characters, but warmed up to Mickey towards the end.

Lincoln was so excited to ride the carousal after he learned about them from Special Agent Oso!

Bennett tried to escape anytime he was out of the stroller!
He thought he was pretty funny.

Love my boys.

Lincoln loved the bubbles just as much as the rides.

Lincoln and his sweet little cousin.

Anyone who knows Lincoln, probably wouldn't describe him as a "friendly" child. This is what he said to his little friend who we picked up to go to play group.

Lincoln: Hello! This is my friend mommy and this is my brother Bennett!

I was shocked.

I hope that I will still be his "friend mommy" when he is 16!

Yes, that's my kid...

Today during Sacrament Meeting Lincoln told me that he had to go potty. So, I took him to the bathroom, and after checking out each stall he finally decided on a potty to sit on. I noticed that his underwear was a little wet so I said, "Lincoln sit right here on the potty. Mommy's got to go get you some clean underwear. I'll be right back." He says, "Okay mommy". So I run back into the chapel and grab his underwear, and when I get back into the hall...surprise, suprise, Lincoln is running up and down the hall with nothing but a shirt on. Really???

A little gem...

Just found this little gem when I was going through some old papers. Love it.

"You are enough. There's no need to waste your energy in trying to be someone else. No one is better than you, and what you do best is being you.

Wishing or pretending you're something that you're not, robs precious time and energy from being the best you can be. There's plenty of cause for joy in the person that you are.

To be your best, be your self. No one sees the world in quite the same way as you. No one cares, or loves, or gives like you. You have something very special to offer. There are things you were meant to do.

Be the best that you can be by finding and mastering the art of being you."

-Ralph Marston

Thanks Ralph, that was a good reminder.
