Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

I love this time of year!  This morning started out great with the usual Turkey Bowl, unfortunately Brandon had to work this morning and missed it.  But it was really fun!  We had a great turn out consisting of Clermont Ward and Minneola - split into 4 teams - and then we even did a little Clermont youth vs. the leaders, and of course leaders won... again! Keep trying guys! ;) After football some of us stayed behind and played a little game of soccer.  My legs are KILLING me!  Remember how I was training for that 1/2 marathon?  Yeah my month long trip was the beginning of the end of my training.  I have only ran once since August, so needless to say I didn't participate in the event.  So today was pretty killer considering.  The rest of the afternoon has been pretty low key since Brandon is still at work.  I made my pumpkin cheesecake that my awesome sister-in-law gave me the recipe for about a year or so ago.  It has always turned out great except for this year... I'm pretty sure not having a hand mixer was the problem.  Oh well I'm sure it will taste better than it looks.  Some friends of mine from CA just moved out here not far from us so we're going to get with them and have a feast like you wouldn't believe! I can't wait!!  Well I better get to my cooking assignments... But first I just wanted to say how thankful I am for all my many blessings!  For my wonderful husband who makes me laugh, and is so hard working at all he does.  For my family for their love and support, they have taught me so much and we've had so many great memories over the years! I'm thankful for my friends, we're all so spread out, which is why I'm thankful for Facebook and Blogs so I can still feel apart of your lives! :) Most of all I'm thankful for the Gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ, for the sacrifice he gave so that I can be blessed with this life and the ability to repent when I've messed up.  I'm thankful that through Him I can be made whole so that I can one day live with my loving Heavenly Father again.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy your meals! :) And enjoy this little clip... I love Dallin H. Oaks!

What did you say?

So here's some awesome conversations that have taken place over the last little while...

1. Yesterday I called my nephew to wish him a happy birthday. Later that night I had the following text conversation with my Sister-in-law:

Hahahaha I love that kid!
 2. At church on Sunday I was teaching my primary class about the word of wisdom. I wrote on slips of paper different items that the WofW warns us about. ie Coffee and I drew a picture of a Starbucks coffee cup on it. etc. I gave a piece of paper to 2 kids and had them role play. The idea was to teach the kids to say no to these items. I called up 2 boys and handed them the last slip of paper. I noticed it said "tea" on it and I thought to myself "oh that's kinda girly but whatever it's all I have left" and I gave it to them anyway. I said "Ok try to get him to take the tea" and this kid, who is usually very quiet and very hard to get him to participate says in an English accent/girly kinda voice "would you like to come to my tea party!?" while shaking the picture at him. The whole class died laughing!

3. Phone call to Brandon the other day:
M: I need you to do me a favor, What's Allen's number?
B: Where's your cell phone?
M: Um.. I locked myself out of my office... everything is inside! :/
B: Are you at the homeless place?
M: Yes.
B: Oh honey. :(
And by "Homeless place" he means the half way house for ex-con's.

4. This one happened about a month ago but it still makes me laugh. My nephew called to tell us he lost his first tooth. I asked if his dad (Mike) had tied his tooth to a door knob with a string and shut the door. He said "no but he was going to tie my tooth to his truck and drive away." Brandon said, "what if your head went with it?" Ryan said, "THAT"s what I was thinking!" hahahaha I love that kid.

5. Brandon woke me up at 2 am to move me from the couch to the bed. The 8 min conversation that followed went like this:

M: You're sitting on my snowman!
B: What?
M: My snowman! He's melting
...B: Why is he melting?
M: Cuz Christmas is over and he's an ornament
B: Why is he an ornament?
M: Cuz that's what we are in charge of
B: Oh

He continued to interview me (which I found out he recorded it all on his phone) and I got so frustrated with him because he kept laughing at me when I was so certain I was making total sense! He kept asking what we were in charge of and after refusing to say anymore since he was just going to laugh at me, I finally gave in and said "pin coushion" and he had the audasity to laugh more and he continued to interview me! So I said, "No. I tell you something that makes TOTAL sense, and you're acting like I'm this idiot that doesn't know anything." hahahahahha I was so mad. I'm really glad he got it recorded though. It has really made my day.
