Baby it's cold outside....

We are in VA (made it in last night) until Sunday and Brrrr is it cold!!

I am loving it though, being able to see my sweetie, and also my nephew. We picked him up on the way and are enjoying him.

The kids and I went to the mall today (brad had to work and 3 kids + to cold to play outside weather ='s me needing to get OUT of the house) to walk around and of course I had to spoil them. It was fun.

Tonight we are having dinner with Matthew's mom (who is expecting a little bundle in Feb...I am SO excited to be an aunt again!) and her fiance at one of my ALL time favorite places to eat...an Italian little place called Tiziano's! woot woot.! (:P) Look out fresh mozerella and tomato...here I come!

Love to all and I'm sure I'll have plenty to post tomorrow since we are doing turkey day with my brother Josh and his wife Tee...she hurt her hand cooking and had to have surgery, so I will be hosting it at my mothers! :P Poor thing! Now she has to deal with my cooking on top of it. LOL

xoxox and SAFE travels to where ever you may be this holiday!

THE MOST WONDERFUL VISIT!!!

Popo and Papa arrived on the 4th, and we have been having a blast ever since. The kids have gone NON stop the entire time thriving purely on the excitment of seeing them.
One of the best parts so far? We had spring rolls at a vietnamese restraunt in Raleigh (pho cali).....though unfortuntley it wasn't close to Hawaii's Pho Mai...but ah well. We take what we can get! :)
Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy! I had video but blogger is being a PIMB so I will try again later!

Obama Wins!

My brother sent this link to me, and aside from the color refrences I think it is pretty catchy! LOL



I really pray we see the change that was promised.

Love to all! :)
