This is my daughters new obsession... she just threw a fit on the floor because I would not give her a fourth packet to eat for today. And it HAS to be this combo. Any of the fruit kind and she FREAKS!

The Holidays. And Updates.

I actually REALLY love Thanksgiving and Christmas! Although it is extremely stressful and often a lot of money is dumped into these holiday's , I think that it is all worth it! I really like Thanksgiving the most though. My grandma always makes the best food on the planet, so you can imagine how Thanksgiving is :) I am in charge of making yams. I slow cook them at 250* for about 4-5 hours or 200* all night. Then I scoop the meat out of the yams and put them in a separate pan then make a softball caramel and drizzle it all over the top, along with giant marshmallows of course! Then I bake that at 350* till marshmallows are golden! It is really yummy and you should try it!

In other new's  Andrew is the Store Manager at 5 Buck Pizza and it will work out really nicely for us in the next few weeks. Andrew is also still going to school full time for Business Management... So 5 Buck should look really good on his resume after college.
I am still watching our niece Sarah Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's. I still stay at home as I plan to always do, which as always means cooking, cleaning, teaching, bathing, doing laundry etc.etc. But I LOVE it. And I like to think that I am good at it haha so it works for me!
Jocey turns 2 next month! Can you believe it?? CRAZY! She can talk in full sentence's, she is extremely helpful, she is very kind to everyone and she now likes me to feed her like a baby with cuppy.... which is weird because she has only ever had like 2 bottles.

Anyways that is a little update on our family!

22 months and Halloween

Jocelynn had her 2nd Halloween this year and it was awesome! She actually got to trick or treat and she got a lot of candy! She was Little Red Riding Hood :) Andrew and I went to Frightmares with my mom and her boyfriend Brent. It was so much fun! I will admit .... I am a wuss when it comes to haunted houses and it did not help that I had never been through one before. I swear those teenagers were just picking on me! Andrew laughed at me pretty much the whole time:(
A couple new things that Jocelynn is doing are:
1. Forming sentences! I love that.
2. She has been EXTREMELY hyper this last month!
3. She acts like she is her cousin Sarah's mentor or something. It is really funny. She is always telling Sarah good job or No No when Jocelynn does not think she should be in something. She also teaches Sarah a lot of words :) I think she is ready to take the big sister role.
