James picked it out all by himself (with a little help from Linds, via the iPhone). We never went to look at rings together. He wanted the ring to be a symbol of his love for me...that is exactly what it is. Our love is pretty much perfect too.

Did I mention that I am going to Maui tomorrow? Well, I am. Lindsay needed me and I am helping out. I love to serve others. My fiance will be staying here, alone, without me.

Thanksgiving feels like it was months ago. Honestly, where does the time go? James and I, along with our two friends Sydney and McCall Biddle drove to Fruitland on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Tons more visitors followed and we had a glorious vacation. We had a great time, I love this time of year! Thanks Farmers for hosting. We love you.

Pit-stop somewhere in Idaho

One of James' favorite things about being at the Farmers- their lego collection!

Kaitlin and I during the celebration preparations

This years Thankful Turkey...we even added more feathers

Joslin's new hair (I guess KK has new hair too), Linds even came

Silly girls

James made some mean mashed potatoes

(James' hand is slimy with turkey juices, yuck)

James was happy to be at the Farmers for Thanksgiving

We relaxed on the couch after dinner before we stuffed ourselves again with dessert

With 29 people at Thanksgiving dinner this was one of the smartest things we did

Rick's extended family came by one afternoon and played a hard core game of flag football

I did a little bit of crafting, James and Duncan Biddle helped

The teenagers (and KK) slept in the attic, I lost track of how many girls were sleeping up there

The little princess, thanks Claire for sharing your room with James

Sunday after church before James and I left, there was even more people than this most of the weekend

I didn't realize James had such wild hair that day

Little did I know I'd be seeing Lindsay in Hawaii 3 weeks later!

I love these girls!

i have a secret...

you'll want to go here to find out my secret (well its not really a secret, I want the whole world to know!)

today is monday

I forgot my cell phone this morning. Dang, I hate being without it. I slept in a little (we had a crazy weekend and didn't get anywhere enough sleep, I thought I deserved a few extra minutes) and used of some of my workout time by doing so. By the time I realized I was cell phone-less I figured it would take 10 to 15 minutes to go back and get it, time I already used up sawing logs. So, I didn't got back...James being the super hero that he is took time out of his day to bring me my cell phone. I feel connected to the world again. Thanks dear for all you do for me.
