I'm Jen Nichols...I love hearing that name. Dave and I now live in West Jordan. Dave currently works at Pioneer Valley Hospital and Jordan Valley Medical Center. He is a Therapist for Pioneer Valley Hospital and does crisis work for them as well. Reagan is 3 yrs old and she is only getting cuter. Matthew just joined our little family on March 22, 2012. He is a sweet little guy. We are just enjoying the ride.
Thanksgiving was good this year. We spent thanksgiving day at Jenny and Chris's house. That was a lot of fun. Chris had to work so we went over to keep the kids and jenny company. Jenny did a great job on the turkey and she had a really cute idea for the kids to do while waiting for dinner. She had everyone make a turkey from cups and that became their snack turkey. We ate and had a good time.
The next day we did our own thanksgiving. I like to do our own when we go to someone else's house for thanksgiving because I want the leftovers. Plus I love cooking thanksgiving dinner. It may be a lot of work but I love being able to do it for my family. Practice makes perfect. We cooked the turkey in a bag this year and it was literally the best turkey yet. It fell right off the bone. Then we put up our christmas stuff. It was a good day. Maybe cooking thanksgiving dinner and putting up christmas decorations while listening to christmas music will be our new tradition.
I just have to say that even though they drive me crazy sometimes I am one lucky lady to be the mommy to these to little cuties. I feel very blessed to have my two children. Love you two lots and lots :-)
I tried posting this picture in the last post but for some reason it would not come up on the blog. But here we are trick or treating. Dave Made his costume from scratch. He is very creative folks. He is dopey and I am snow white. Reagan is a witch and Matthew is a mummy. Maybe next year we will go with more of a theme. But we had lots of fun. A couple little girls thought I was the real snow white and one girl follwed me around for a couple blocks because she told her mother that she wanted to stay with snow white.
Reagan had a blast trick or treating. She didn't want to go home.
I took Matthew home with Dave when it got dark. He was getting pretty tired. And Reagan and I continued on for a few more houses.
Dave went to his sister's new house to help Chris dig trenches for his sprinkler system. While they were doing that we had some really yummy soup that Jenny made and then after the good food we carved pumpkins. It was so much fun and Reagan had a really good time with her cousins.
This was before Dave got home from work. We were waiting for him to come home so we could go trick or treating.
