We were only home for a few days, but we managed to cram in a lot. We had Thanksgiving dinner with the Rosenthal side. The kids got to go to the zoo. We decorated Nana's Christmas tree. Ben, Dad, Ryan and Brooktynn all went to a UNO basketball game. I taught a Hoop clinic for OPS. The Perez cousins came over with Great Grandpa Z. And we got in some black Friday shopping as well....and we may have even got in some Thursday shopping too!! But I got some great deals! We went to our family favorite restaurant, Three Happiness. And we all went to the Mormon Trail Center to see the Gingerbread House Display. And to top it off the kids played every second they could with their cousins. It was perfect! We have a lot to be Thankful for!
At the beginning of November Ben and I talked about selling this car. I love this car, but the miles were getting up there, and I knew we probably needed to sell her. Plus her plates expired at the end of the month. As the month went on, and we didn't list her, I was just going to decide to just keep her until we killed her. If we weren't going to sell her then, there was no point in paying to re-register her then sell her. And I was ok with keeping her.
Then, a few days before we left for Thanksgiving a guy on our neighborhood Facebook page asked if anyone was in the market to sell their Honda Pilot. He was looking to buy a used one for a good deal. Not thinking anything about it, I told him I had one he could look at. He came that night to look and test drive her, that was a Saturday. And by Monday, she was sold. I left my running stickers on her. I couldn't take them off. It was too painful. She was a good car. She will be missed!
Every year one of our friends throws a couples Halloween party. And for the most part, the couples have coordinating costumes. This year we waited until the last minute to figure out what we were going to go as, but when we did, it was epic! We went with stick figures! I got white duct tape for the stick part, but also found battery operated lights to attached to us to make us glow. Now, it may not look cool now, but walking around in the dark, we look pretty awesome! And at this party, a bunch of us ladies did a flash mob dance to Thriller. We did it under black lights. A few people tried to catch it on video, but it was a little to dark to catch us...however, I was seen perfectly. It was a funny watching this lit up stick person dancing to Thriller. And to top off our awesome and creative costumes, we won Best Costumes Over-All!!! Go us!!!
We also got to meet our new little niece, Andie Emily!!! We were able to be there on the Sunday she was getting blessed in Church.

Now it is just me and Dani home in the mornings. She still has a few years at home before we send her off to preschool.
The first day of Kindergarten was a success! Gabby had so much fun. And she said she had a lot of friends in her class. And shortly after getting back from school we headed to the park for soccer practice. We are just putting the girls in for fun. Gabby's team didn't have a coach, so they asked me. So now I am coaching soccer. I hope the parents don't expect much!
