My most favorite time of the year!

And busiest I think! I have been making scarves for each of my cub scouts and have been selling some on the side. I have also made myself a wool sweater vest that I really like and discovered it goes with just about everything in my closet! :)
This week is going to be crazy to say the least. As my boys wander around the house they create mini hurricanes as they go. They don't have school at all this week due to Thanksgiving break. Who ever heard of such a thing? So...

Tomorrow I have to clean the house so it will hopefully be clean by Wednesday when we go to my most wonderful in-laws house.

Tuesday is the baking day. I need to make enough pies for 20 people for my side of the family for Thanksgiving dinner. I will be doing pumpkin, apple, peach, blackberry or a combination of blackberry, raspberry and blueberry. And whatever else my in-laws want us to bring to chow on the rest of the time we are at their house.

Wednesday morning I have to work for part of the time and pack for going out of town.

Can you say busy?

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
