Thanks for a Thankful Day

For Thanksgiving I was in charge of:

Sweet Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole

(My pies were dang good.)

Overall it was fun to be with friends and to have a low key Thanksgiving. :)



Noah learned how to carve a turkey from YouTube and wore such a cute little apron:

A big thanks to Martha Stewart for the place settings:

After Thanksgiving we...you guessed it--went hiking! Unfortunately for our bodies, it was a complete sheet of ice.
Highlight of the trip:
Sitting in the hot springs

Low point of the trip:
I slid over a rock and it went right up my bum. I lay crying on the trail in the ice for awhile. We realized that on every hiking trip I end up crying halfway through.

Overall, I'm thankful no bones were broken post feasting.

Race You!

"Noah, let's race to see who can get to bed fastest."

I won because Noah cheated. Cheaters never win Noah.

Dear Drivers of Utah,

The person in front of you has somewhere important to go too. When they need to merge, for goodness sake, let them in! Driving around school buses on the left hand side while it's stopped for children is illegal. Pull over for ambulances because that could be you one day and you wouldn't want someone else to stop you from getting to the hospital. When someone is basically in your lane of traffic trying to back out of a stall it's very dangerous to speed around them. Most of all, it's not just your life you're messing with when you get into a car. It's mine. Stop driving like you're the only person in the world.

Halloween Thanks?

Technical difficulties have prevented me from being as hilarious as you are all used to. In the following slideshow please enjoy the following: pictures of Noah in a nightgown (big bag wolf, eh?), pictures of dear Isla's visit, my Thanksgiving banner for the house, the beginning of my quilt, and culinary delicacies we made at Whitney's Halloween party.

Anecdotal Notes

So I've been talking to some people and trying to recruit them to join me in the marathon we're running in June. So I've decided to share with each of you my running schedule.

Things of note:

-We're not going to grad school next year and I'm teaching a third year of school. Woooooohooooo!
-One of my students is a chronic nose picker. They ate one of their boogers while I was teaching.
-The nose picker also farted in my classroom AND WAS FANNING IT AT THE STUDENT SITTING NEXT TO THEM. Needless to say I felt bad for them and then it wafted up my way. Oh goodness. I had to make a blanket statement asking anyone who needed to "pass gas" to please leave the room. "Pass gas? What's that." Fart, if anyone needs to fart please leave the classroom. The whole time they're sitting back there grinning.

There are no other things of note at this time. For further updates please stay tuned.
