Chad and I
Alyssa and Na-Na
Chad and Rusty
Laramie and I

We had one of our Thanksgiving yesterday at our house with Chad's family. It was a blast, I love to have the house full of people. Chad's mom always goes all out and make so much food, which is great to have all those left overs for the next few days. We will be going to Heather's tomorrow to have the Morgan's side Thanksgiving.
This morning I was one of those Black Friday shoppers. I had my niece Laramie with me and I even took Chastity with us. We got up at 4:15am and were home by 7:30am. The lines weren't too bad had to wait for 25mintues. I got all the deals that I wanted expect for one but it's okay. It was only $4.00 savings.
Hope that you all had a great and safe Thanksgiving.

Little hand prints

Sometimes you get discouraged,
because I am so small
and always leave my fingerprints on furniture and walls.
But every day I'm growing up,
and soon I'll be so tall
that all those little fingerprints will be hard to recall.
So here is a special handprint,
just so you can say
this is how my fingers looked when I placed them here today.

I love this saying I can remember giving my mom a hand print with this saying on it. Ever year we do a hand painting for Chad on fathers day so we have one from every year and then I frame them. This is just a TRUE quote, both of my little girls are becoming not so little anymore. Alyssa can now see into the kitchen sink, she is getting so tall. And Chastity she is so independent and wants to do everything on her own. It amazes me that they were so little and tiny and now there getting bigger everyday.

Amanda and I Friday night
First shot of the night and the whole group except my dad hadn't got there yet.

Okay so we had a really busy weekend around here with Amanda's 21st birthday this weekend.
Friday- Was my niece Amanda's 21st Birthday!!! It was spent with the girls @ home with my mom and Chad and I going out to the bar to PARTY with Amanda and the family. You only turn 21 once and she made the best of it. She had about 9 or 10 shots plus 2 or 3 other drinks. There was a band @ the bar and they made it be all about her all night long. She made it until about 1am and then she was done. Jamie took her home and put her to bed. The rest of us stayed and hung out for a couple more hours. Got to bed about 4am and the girls were up @ 7:45am it was an early morning for Chad and I. Not a big deal we don't go out a lot so it was worth it.
Saturday- My brother Mike had a party for Amanda @ my brother Brian's shop, more for the family and the ones that couldn't go to the bar. We did a little pitch in dinner, keg, and beer pong. Amanda's uncle did DJ. Tom came too I didn't get any picture of him though. It was so nice to see him.It was a lot of fun and the girls had a blast with dancing and running around with all the other kids and of course eating cake. I took so many pictures so these are just a little bit of them.
Sunday-Alyssa also had a preschool program @ church but I'll wait to post that until I get the video from one of the other moms. My camera went dead and I didn't get all of it. we had a really busy weekend but it was a blast.

Alison's Bracelets

Hello to all, we need to get total number how many people that will want bracelets (Ali bracelets). The more you order the cheaper they are. And we really would like to only have to do one order. Were wanting to order them by the end of the month. So please let me know how many you would want. If there is someone that you know that I don't know that wants a bracelet please feel free to forward this on to them. It looks like we are going with "Alison Kline" to be inscribed on the top, outside of each bracelet and we might include a little something on the inside that would be against the wrist. Please remember that all the money will go towards Neuroendocrine Cancer Research. Hopefully, with support of all you wonderful people we will have a very big donation to make towards research of neuroendocrine cancer. And someday, there will be a cure and prevention. The price will $3.00 to $4.00 dollars per bracelet. And then shipping. The top pictures is what the band will look like. I'm doing this with Ali's good friend Kimberly who lives in S.C. Some of you I have sent emails to you but for the ones that I don't have email address for then please get in contact with me. Thanks and can't wait for the feedback.

Here are some onesies that I made for Sarah B and Angie for their little ones. I got the idea from Alison she did this for all the little babies. The first three were for Angie. I've been trying to be a lot crafty these days, it makes me feel closer to Ali. There's one missing that I made for Angie I gave it to her and didn't take a picture. It was the letter M for Maddie. I used brown and pink on both because that was what they were going for in their nursery. I can't wait to make more for all those pregnant ladies out there in blogging world.

Share 7 facts about yourself. Some random and some weird.

Let us know who tagged you.

Thanks Kayla for the tag it's my first one in the blogging world.

1. I can still remember the smell of school. You know the smell of pencils, crayons, markers, glue. I think that is mostly smelled like that in elementary but it's a smell that I haven't forgotten.

2. I love the smell of cabbage patch baby dolls. It makes me think of when I was a little girl. I find myself smelling the girls dolls and makes me feel like a little girl again.

3. I'm not for sure how old I was but I had a strawberry short cake purse, it smelled like strawberry's. I was playing with Heather and Alison on are back porch (of the gold house out on 900) and I threw up in it. How weird is that?

4. I have a really good memory. I can remember anything and everything. If I was there when it happened I won't forget it. I replay it over and over in my head.

5. When I'm driving and I'm by myself it's really hard. I find myself looking at the sky and hopping that I see a sign from ALI. Most of the time I start to cry.

6. Becoming a parent is the most amazing thing in life. I love that I'm a mommy and I love the fact that I have two little girls that just think that I'm the best thing in the whole world. Even if no one else does they do.

7. I'm a picture freak, I take pictures of anything and everything. I always have my camera with me no matter what. I even take it just to go to the store or to take Alyssa to school. You just never know what you might see.

Birthday Party

On Saturday my sister Heather and Micheal had a birthday party for our friend Jen and I. It was a blast and a reason to get together. The weather was even better. We did a cook out, bone fire, cake, s'mores, wii playing and even a little dancing. It was so nice to see everyone and just to be able to get away for awhile. The girls had a lot of fun playing with Elliot and Abby.
Tom even came over before the Marine Core Ball all dress up, he look great. I know that it was hard for him to go but he did. As the days now have turned into months it still seems like a dream. But then other days it hurts just like it just happened. It's hard at times when were all together because I know that Alison would also be there with us. Even though I know that she is there watching us and laughing along with us. I miss you and love you Ali. Your in thoughts everyday. I know that you see the girls growing up and how much Alyssa talks about you. She ask so many questions about Heaven and I know that when it's our time you'll be there waiting to take us in.
