happy monday and all that jazz


It's been a while, huh? I didn't even write any thankful posts or anything. You probably all think I'm the most ungrateful blogger alive!

Well, I probably am. But I am a grateful real-life person. Cross my heart.

I brought my fancy pants camera with me this past thanksgiving break, but I didn't take any pictures. Are you surprised? If you are, you shouldn't be. It's just who I am.

Last Wednesday my family and I loaded up the suburban and headed off to Island Park, Idaho to spend the rest of the week in a huge comfy cabin. We lounged in our pajamas (no real clothes allowed!), ate tons of pie (we started the pie on wednesday night!), read books (just finished The Book Thief!), and slept in until our little hearts desired (9:00 a.m. is the latest I could do...).

Alex saw this thing floating around the internet a couple weeks ago, and he immediately texted me and said that it should be a tradition of ours. He said we should start it at the cabin. So we did. Dinovember became a real thing for us this past Thanksgiving break, and I have to say, it was a huge hit.

(reading the book thief. I just noticed the picture on the book... and it's just a part of the book. no one get offended pretty please...)

Those dinosaurs got into lots of mischief at night! They made huge messes! It became a battle to see who would clean up the dinosaurs. I usually had to. 

Anyway, I'm thankful for Alex, my family, my fourth graders, my house, books, movies, cell phones, blogging, blah blah blah.

I'm grateful for all of you readers! 

Fa la la la la, la la la LAH!

have a great monday.
