This year we spent Thanksgiving with my family in 
 (aka: pure joy)

We spent the entire weekend playing wii bowling,
eating lots and lots of food,
and visiting all the amazing sites Spokane has to offer.

 Our first stop was by my grandma and grandpa Mccain's home.
A place where my family spent many Thanksgivings.
Oh the memories!

Next a slide down the infamous
 Radio Flyer

visited the Clock Tower in River Front Park

 Took a few rides on the carousel.
We even got Gege up on a horse!
(Yay for her new knee!!)

Fed the Garbage Eating Goat all our leftovers 
from our delicious lunch at Dicks!

and last but not least...
fulfilled the long standing 
Family go see a movie on Thanksgiving tradition!

This year we saw
We Bought a Zoo
We loved it!!

(I now give Brandon permission to buy a zoo if I die.
However Scarlett Johansen can not be the zoo keeper.)

 I have so much to be grateful for,
my wonderful husband,
our loving families,
and most importantly...
that soon I'll be allowed to wear elastic pants and not even feel bad about it!!

Life is good!

Hunger Games

Yet another one of my favorite books is being made into a movie.
Even Brandon loved it.
We both read it in about 3 days!
(record for me...and probably him)
It will be out in March and we can't wait!

We watched the trailer last night and these were some of our thoughts...
It looks awesome!
Not sure about Lenny Kravits??
Brandon loves Woody Harrelson!
(news to me)
I'm a little (a lot) worried about the violence. 
I am still team Peeta!

I am a lover of 
Some people just skip it and move right onto Christmas.
But not me,
I love everything about it!
eating, shopping, eating some more....what's not to love?

This year I am especially excited!
I'm excited to see my in-laws and then head up north
to good old Spokane.
I'm excited to see my parents and some of my best friends.
I'm especially excited to share all of this with Brandon!

 I am very grateful for my hardworking husband.
He works so hard each and every day
and then takes care of me when i'm tired or not feeling well.
He deserves an extra piece of Pecan Pie!

Well our Halloween was incredibly lame.
I had to work
and Brandon had to write a paper.
But don't worry,
 that didn't stop us from attempting to 
consume all the candy leftover from the trick or treaters.

I sure do love Halloween!

Here's me kissing the jack-o-lantern version of
 Donny Osmond, I mean my husband!!
