Have never went shopping on Black Friday, but Walmart's ad for Nintendo DS for $89 was enticing... contemplated waking up early, but I love sleep too much. I was willing, however, to wake up and throw on clothes to head off to Wally World at 9:30 'just to see if by chance any were left'... I scored 2 Nintendo DS's and JD is going to poop when he finds out I also landed the XBOX 360 he has wanted forever!!!

Picked Ethan up from school today and I asked if he told his teacher that he went to visit his Aunt and Uncle... he said that he tried but he couldn't remember what State they lived in... 'Illinois.' 'NOOOOO... the STATE they live in...' 'Chicago?!?' 'That's it!' I wasn't aware there's a State of Chicago... I also wasn't aware that Ottawa is not in Canada, it's a city in Illinois!
We spent the weekend before Thanksgiving visiting Uncle Kenny and Aunt Ally in Chicago... so much fun! Especially when Grandma and Grandpa came to visit and brought Uncle Mike and Jamie! If that wasn't enough, Grandma K drove up with Great Grandma! We are so blessed with such great family!
Grandpa's having a good time with the boys!
Uncle Kenny shares the boys' passion for video games... what a great surprise when the original Nintendo made the trip home with us!
The train ride in and out of the city was fun!
Thanks for letting us come visit you Uncle Kenny and Aunt Ally! We had so much fun!

Hubby is on his way home from Utah... he randomly text messaged that I 'was funny!' Don't know what I did and I haven't talked to him all day... Cripes! Have we made it to that point in our relationship where he channels my funny thoughts?!?

Sean wants to know "if we fly to Chicago do we walk on the sidewalk to Uncle Kenny's house or drive... cause we aren't going to have our car with us!" He's amazed by the concept that Uncle Kenny owns a car and we can ride in it!

Had a great time at the Marine Corps Ball last night... JD got his 'swerv' on in a major way (that's what he called it)... apparently a couple rum and cokes make my Marine karaoke! He was so funny! Happy Birthday to all the Marines out there and thanks to all our veterans for their service!

Marine Corps Ball in two days... glad that my body felt I could pull off a huge zit on the bridge of my nose smack dab in the middle of my eyes... who am I kidding?!? It's a third eye! So glad I'm in my 30's and dealing with zits on 'prom night' all over again!

I remember my brother as a boy playing with his sweet little hamster Numb Nuts (he named it himself)... Michael used to spend lots of time building vehicles out of Legos for his hamster to ride around in. In fact, when we inherited a few large containers of Legos from Grandma we ran across one of those very hamster vehicles. This inevitable need to make 'rodents' mobile is either encoded in the genes and passed down through Uncle Mike or it is a very male trait... as Ethan and Sean's guinea pigs have been made mobile!
