Last week the Ellsworth's sent Dane off to the MTC... :( Bittersweet for their family - Adrienne asked if I would stay with the girls and Grady for a couple nights just to give them peace of mind that someone else was there. Well, knowing that I'm a huge scaredy cat at night, I got Jason to come with me. (Thanks Jason, you're the best) Marisa, Audrey, and I did a masque. It's my favorite Arbonne masque. Your skin feels so soft afterward! So of course Jason HAD to take a picture of all of us. We had fun and stayed up way too late! Audrey sang to Grady every night before he went to sleep. She has such a pretty voice. I love these girls - they have a special place in my heart. And seriously M and A we have to go rollerblading soon!

Last week on Thurs. we had a really great enrichment night - everyone brought soups, breads, and desserts to share. It was touching listening to stories of gratitude and traditions. Well I had signed up to bring Jason's mom's famous apple crisp. I think it is to DIE FOR. So I worked all day, and came home to make it. About a month ago, I bought an apple peeler corer slicer at a Pampered Chef party but hadn't gotten it out of the box, so Jason didn't realize I had a new one. Our old one broke last year, and since then when I make apple crisp, I have to cut, slice, core, and peel by hand. So I tried to get the Pampered Chef one set up, but just couldn't get it so I just said, forget it, I'll just cut them all! Well, about 4 apples into it, Jason walks in with a Bed BAth and Beyond bag and pulls out a new apple corer peeler slicer! He looked at the one I had on the counter, and I looked at the one he had in his hand and we both started laughing! He said he had thought about me having to come home after work and cut all those apples, and thought he would be nice and get me a new one to use. What a sweet heart! He set up my Pampered Chef one in about 30 seconds, and the rest of the apples were done in about 3 minutes. So needless to say, someone will be benefiting from this neat gadget around hmmm, Christmas time?? hee hee
P.S. If you've never used one of these bad boys, it's so worth it! And the Pampered Chef one is fabulous....

I just had to write a quick post about how much fun blogging is! I'm officially addicted, and my most favorite part is reading other people's blogs, and looking at everyone's pictures and ideas. I am AMAZED at how beautiful, talented, and special my friends are!!! I LOVE that I can keep in contact with people that I don't get to see very often, everyday if I want. I'm finding that I try to give myself a time limit, "Ok Drea, only 30 min. this time" but like I know many of you have said, it turns into a lot longer! But, it makes me happy so oh well. I am getting so excited for the holidays and am having fun planning for Thanksgiving. Can't wait - 11 days and counting until Jason's parents arrive. I miss them so much.
SO, WHY DO YOU ENJOY BLOGGING?

Look at this cute little ball of fur. I was doing stuff around the house today, and it's unusual for Will not to be in the same room as me. He stalks me when I'm at home - he has to be in the same room as I am. So I called him and I couldn't find him. Finally, after calling his name a few times in our bedroom, I heard this little "hhhmm" sound coming from what I thought was the corner. Well I saw this little white paw sticking out from under Jason's side of the covers in our bed! (Notice how the bed is not made... haha) I ran to get my camera, and I guess he was so tired that he didn't move. Will's my little kitty boy and I love him even though he's a brat sometimes! He's definately part of the family!

Jason was very naughty on Saturday. He broke my number one rule of this family..... NO SUNBURNS! Ever since I was 12 years old, and had the worst sunburn of my life at Seven Peaks in Utah, I vowed I would never get burned again! And so I pass that on to my husband as well and to our future children who will have no pigment in their skin whatsoever - but I digress. So when Jason and I were dating, he got burned a few times, and wasn't so good at putting on his sunscreen. But he has gotten so much better since I have helped him be more educated (hee hee) about the sun and the damage it can do to us pasty white people here in Arizona. The rule was set a while ago that if you get sunburned during golf, you don't golf the next week. Ever since, he has not been burned. HOWEVER.... on Saturday I came home to this adorable face. He said he didn't have his Arbonne sunscreen in his golf bag and just couldn't bare to put anything else on his face. "I couldn't put mineral oil or animal parts on my face!!" (he's a smart man!) How could you enforce the rule with that smile?? I love this boy!

Shawn found a kitty friend...
Pretty Kayla as Tinkerbell
So cute! Brother and sister on Halloween
I love cupcakes!
Oh Bubba! There's never been a cuter puppy dog!
More Halloween pictures, I know, but I had to put them on the blog. Seriously, has there ever been cuter kids??? One of Kayla's favorite movies is Peter Pan, and she can recite most of the movie, so she was a PERFECT Tinkerbell. And Shawn LOVES animals, so it was fitting for him to be a dog. I love these kids! Great job Ang on the costumes and makeup!
