Today I woke up to this...

I have an awesome husband and he has a very talented cousin. After crying my eyes out after seeing it, I went to school, took Abby to McDonalds to play on the toys while we waited for Brandon to finish class, and then went to Kneaders for breakfast. While Abby took a nap I ordered almost all of our family Christmas presents, then Brandon and I went to the movies and saw Secretariat...Loved it! Oh and I bought a new coat at Target...I needed a new one (not really but I am addicted to buying coats!). It was a great day and I am now glad to be going to bed!
This was the first year where I have honestly not wanted a ton of attention. Not that for all my other birthdays I wanted everything to be about me, but I wanted my birthday to be recognized. This year, I kind of dreaded it. I am so grateful for everyone who thought of me and either wrote to me or called me, but I realized this year that I have been selfish in the past. I have an incredibly thoughtful husband and the best friends and family anyone could ask for. Those are the best thing anyone could be given.

Thanksgiving Point

We have been wanting to go to Thankgiving Point for a while now and yesterday was finally the day we did it. The dinosaur museum was incredible. I had no idea it was so big. The had a ton of hands-on things for kids, it will be fun to take Abby there when she's older. I didn't really take any pictures while we were there because I was chasing Abby the whole time trying to stop her from touching/climbing on all the exhibits.
We went to the farm they have afterward and looked at all the animals. Brandon and I each got a ticket with admission for the pony ride so Abby got to go twice. After the first time, we took her off and she wanted right back on, but we put her on a bigger pony. She really enjoyed it, but by the end of the second time, she wanted off.

Where to find Abby

Abby bolts it to the bathroom whenever we leave the door open, so if you are ever looking for her, she'll be playing in the shower.
