This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for most of the same things everyone is thankful for, health, family, friends and pets. Every day is an opportunity to laugh and enjoy life. That’s what I try to do and I’m doing a pretty good job at it.  I never worried that I would die from cancer, but even the remotest possibility made this life so much more precious. Life is great! 

3 weeks until we move so I'm hoping to get some packing done this long weekend!

Bowling fun

Yesterday we went bowling with my sister and her family. We had a great time. Though we all stunk on the 2nd string. We thought we'd do better but, Cassidy beat quite a lot of us!

We all helped Cassidy. She loved bowling but only would use solid colored balls.

We played boys against girls (girls had a bumper).

After we went out to lunch. On the drive home I said something about being tired and Cassidy chimes in from the backseat "I'm not tired, I'm not tired" and not 5 minutes later she's sleeping. LOL.

Moving in 5 weeks!

The home inspection on our house went well. We were nervous about the age of our roof but apparently it wasn't an issue. We did test positive for Radon (slightly) so we do have to pay to have that fixed. They are coming today.

We are buying a house that we can see from our house. Right around the corner! It's brand new. Just built this summer! We're getting excited!

2 car garage!  The house is on a tiny dead end street though for so those people who come to Cassidy's birthday party - the parking situation could be even worse than on our existing street!

Big kitchen with a nice deck to the backyard. The yard has lots of trees so finally shade for Cassidy.

All new appliances! granite counters. honestly, these are things I don't really care about. We had fairly new appliances and the granite is nice but... not my deal. I'm really just happy to have more space. Open concept, new & level (nothing in our house is level haha).

This is the dining room. Very open to the kitchen.
5 weeks to moving day! I can't wait. We're going to have an awesome Christmas in our new (forever) home!

Halloween is awesome with a 2 1/2 year old!

Cassidy has been talking about Halloweeen for weeks. "Mommy is it Halloween time?"
Practicing trick-or-treating in the house - you knock 9 times on the office door (9 times because thats the secret code on Team UmiZoomi which she's obsessed with) and she gives rocks for treats. We practiced saying "Trick-or-Treat" very loud (which for her is a normal persons volume)!

We carved Jack-o-lanterns a few days before Halloween.

Cassidy was Minnie Mouse

She loved trick-or-treating!  She had the most adorable smile and after each house would say "Look at all the candy I have!"

She's so innocent and sweet! It was a really fun night.
