Vacation Time

Ok so this is going to be a quick blog to just say hi, and Happy late Thanks Giving. We had a nice Thanks Giving here in Arizona. On Wednesday night Kip (brother), and his family drove down from Kingman, Arizona where they live. Britteny and I dropped Cooper and Kennedy off at my brother Dave's house to play with there cousins, and the Adults went out to eat for my birthday.

We ended up going to the Texas Roadhouse. Brittney and I really like that place, and rarely ever go because it's so busy. Well that and eating out is expensive. Anyway we had a good time, went back home and watched Live Free or Die Hard, and then went to bed.

On Thursday morning Kip and I got up early and met Dave for some flag football with Dave's ward. After that I pretty much skipped out on the breakfast that was planned at my brother Dave's sister in laws house. I felt as though I needed to watch the Green Bay Packer game. I did go over at halftime though, and then watched the rest of the game at Dave's house. Just in case you didn't know, Green Bay won.

After that the kids went swimming. Yes we can still swim in Arizona at this time of year. Mind you my brother Dave's new house has a heater on there pool. After the kids were done swimming we all headed to our house for the traditional Turkey Dinner. It was gooood. We hung out and visited, called Mom and Dad, and Played Guitar Hero on the X-Box.

Kip, and Susan left around 7:00pm, and Dave and JoLynn left soon after. It was a great Thanks Giving, and were just gratefull to have good friends, and family.

As for this week Brittney the kids and I are leaving tomorrow afternoon to head over to Southern California. Were taking the kids to Disneyland for an early Christmas. Well be going on Thursday, and Friday. We have park hopper passes, so we can go to either Disney parks, or just one for the day. You know whatever we feel like doing I guess. Brittney's parents are going to fly out, and go with us to the park for the two days. On Saturday were just going to hang in California at either the beach or whatever. Well take lots of pictures, and I'm sure at some point I will put up a Disneyland blog. Hopefully it will be sooner than later unlike the Halloween blog.

Anyway that's the big update. Hope you all are doing well. Well blog at you all again soon. Love the Anderson's.

Happy Halloween

Ok I know it's about time, but after looking at the pictures I'm not sure I want to even put them up on the blog. But I guess since I talked about it, I don't really have a choice. That is unless I want to read complaints in the comments section.

So lets start with the kids. Here are Cooper and Kennedy. As you can see, and if your familiar at all with Nintendo, Cooper is Mario. Kennedy got dressed up as Tinker Bell.

This picture is of Kennedy, and Devin. She is our faithful baby sitter. The kids just love her, and are always happy to have her come over and play. As it turned out they both dressed up the same.

So this is Brittney as the Wicked witch. I know the original plan was for her to be the scare crow, but that just didn't work out with the allotment of costumes we had on hand to get. So after a long discussion about being the Lion or the Tin man which none of those ideas really appealed, Brittney decided that the witch would be better.

And as for me I decided to actually go through with being Dorothy even after getting the plus size Dorothy costume. It was pretty tight. As I put my arms though the arm sleeves they pretty much ripped out at the seams. But all in all it was fun even if I did make Dorothy look as though she was pregnant.

And finally here is both the Witch and Dorothy side by side as friends.

Over all it was a fun Halloween. The adults had fun at the adult party, and the kids had fun going around the neighborhood. I think the best part was when Cooper decided he was done and wanted to head back home after only ten or so houses. But being the good Dad I am I had the kids go to a few more houses. They didn't hardly have enough candy. So after a few more houses, and a few more pleas to go home we made it a night after being out for maybe 45 minutes if that. I hope you all had a great Halloween, and for you Canadians a great Thanks Giving. For the Americans I hope your Thanks Giving next week is great. May you all eat enough Turkey to make you want to have a long nap. Take care until we blog at you all again. Love the Anderson's.

Happy Veterans Day.

Ok so I know it's been a long time. Actually I think thats how I'm going to start out all of my blogs from now on. We have just been busy. I promise. After Halloween there has actually been a lot going on. Brittney is busy with her work, kids, and church calling. Thomas has been busy with work, and Hunting. I had to work last weekend after actually taking Friday the 2nd of November off of work to go hunting for Deer. After working the weekend, (Saturday and Sunday)and helping with the kids, and Coopers soccer practices Thomas took Thursday and Friday off from work to continue Hunting.

Thomas went Hunting the last Four days. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But only after going to Sacrament meeting first. I wasn't going to go today, but today was the last day, and I hadn't really seen much all week. Deer that is. Nothing today as well. So in short I know I need to get the Halloween pictures up. I will do my best to get them downloaded this week, and a new post up talking a little bit about Halloween and some upcoming events.

Other than that I hope you all had a great Veterans day, and remember to support the Veterans, and the current troops. Again take care, and well blog at you all later. Love the Anderson's.
