I had to put both pics of the kids, because I think it's so funny how London always poses! Little Miss Sassy! Had to put a picture in of me and miss Addi with our new hairdos. Addi loves hers and thinks she is "it" with long bangs! It was fun to go with her, she is growing up so fast and should be taller than her Mom in the next couple years:)

can meal. It was very yummy and glad I didn't have to worry about that after me and Addi came home from the salon.

The girls had a blast jumping on the tramp in the snow and Asher, well, he had an ok time:)

Here's Addi getting the most out of the snow. She is trying to sled down our driveway.

That's right everybody. There's just enough game left in this old playa to bag a new phone. You didn't think I'd take a real lover and have the audacity to post it on our family blog right? Didn't think so. But you've got to check one of these out sometime. I'm sure most of you have seen the commercial where they show somebody looking up google maps and then kicking over to google streetview and it shows up in real time on the phone where the person is. Well, that aint the half of it honey. This thing's got a touch screen, removable high capacity micro SD card (up to 16 gigs of removable love. Makes the iPhone look like a table cracker.) 3.1 mp camera, 3g capable, google talk, AIM, MSN msgr, Yahoo msgr, facebook, gmail, any other POP or IMAP mail, and thats just the shizzle already insizzle. Feel me?
Also, the operating system the G1 uses (I refuse to use the degrading term "smart phone" for something so elegant) is the google android open source platform. For all you non-nerds out there, this means the phone can be modified and applications can be developed by anyone with the time and ability to do so. In turn most of these apps are free at the android market site accessible on the G1 unlike the cash you gotta lay out in Apple's app store (take that iCracker). We're talking totally useful apps, as well as games, like Compare Everywhere, a barcode scanner program that lets you scan the barcode on something you want to purchase which in turn pulls up prices, both locally and online, and reviews from people who've purchased in the past. I use this all the time.
The other day I dl'd this game called Zombie Run which uses the GPS function on the phone (that's right, built in GPS that uses google maps to give you Garmin-like directions to your destination in real time--I know, totally worth its own paragraph, but you gotta pick your battles. So, I see my location on the phone and I have to pick a destination I'd like to get to. Np I'm thinking, so I pick something a couple of blocks away and BAM!! Sweet mama, I've got zombies coming at me from all sides. They aren't moving quick, they're the undead after all, I've heard that tends to take the zip out of your stride, but they're trying to cut me off! I've got to move quickly. I'm out of my house, and running like a crazed chicken licker trying to evade the walking dead who want to kill me, but nobody else knows what I'm doing. So I'm checking my G1 to see where those jerks are while watching out for curbs and vegetation and running down the street. People are looking out their windows and up or down the street thinking double d's finally lost it, I knew the day was coming. "Hey Madge come get a load of that Hiatt joker up the street. I think his thought box's finally bought the farm. I told you it was gonna happen." I haven't even told Tracy about this yet, but man, if a game can get my butt out of my house and running then I gotta give it props. I mean, I can move. I got wheels still, even if they're only good for short sweaty distances at this point, but I hate running with a passion born of sore knees and shrivelled, atrophied lungs. I made it, but I hate zombies too.
Oh, and I love this thing so much that I bought a Best Skins Ever protector for it. they're only $7.99 plus shipping but you gotta check out this video and see that it really makes a huge difference. This cat goes after his laptop with a fork and can't scratch it because of the protector. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY6pYOtb328&feature=related . So, now that you all want one you can check out http://www.bestskinsever.com/ and get yours. It's a little grippy right after you put it on and it will pull lint out of your pocket for a week or so, but that goes away quickly and you'll love the fact that you can't scratch your touchscreen now! Buy it for your iCracker too. Other companies like Zagg are selling they're "invisible shield" for 25 bones. Lame. Same stuff too as far as I can tell. Buy it, you'll thank me later.

London dressed up in her own creative way and then had to put on some of my jewelery, perfume and my red lipgloss (that didn't really stay on just her lips) and then wanted a pic of herself. She comes up with some fun stuff, gotta love her creativity. I love her! (oh, and I can't forget that she put on her favorite Hannah Montana shoes that she wants to wear with EVERYTHING!)

We finally painted our front door, and after a couple of weeks, I like it. I have a hard time with choosing paint color and go into shock for awhile after we have painted something. Picking out paint colors is such a difficult thing for me, if I was better at it more of my house would be painted already. Anybody with expertise can come help me anytime!!! The door painted definitely makes it look cleaner.
I also finally found some church clothes for Asher, and now he is the man! Look at that handsome boy!

We stayed home for the first time in 12 years to have our own Thanksgiving. We had some friends, the Drakes, over for the feast. It was a fabulous dinner!! We had pretty much everything we would have if we had gone home. We made rolls, sweet potato casserole, cheesy vegetables, and 4 pies. They were all super good. We also had some mishaps with salt as we were making stuff and had to throw away a batch of rolls and pie filling, we were getting delirious by the end of the night before Thanksgiving, but luckily we caught our mistakes and didn't serve salt rolls and salt pumpkin pie:) Jamie Drake brought cards for the kids to make, which they loved. Then had some more neighbors over, the Fitzgerald's, for pie. We had 7 pies and a pan of brownies for 6 adults and 8 kids. Lots of fun, the only bummer was it rained pretty much all day and the kids couldn't go outside and play. Fun day though and nice not to have to make the 10+hour drive to Utah for a few days. But it is sure nice to go home too and not have to make so much stuff as well.
