So, one of the things I have yet to post is Halloween pictures. So I'll get around to that today -- a whole month late.
And then, since the Peanut Festival was in town, we went to the pre-school day! Which I thought was going to be much smaller than it was. Haha. But it was free. And cured me of my desire to pay to go back. My main reason for going back would have been for fair food (since they didn't have concessions open during the pre-school thing). But I couldn't see spending $20 to go back just to spend more money to eat. Yep, old fuddy duddy.
And then I voted. And watched Facebook blow up with hatred. That was really a sad thing, honestly. I'm thankful that's mostly past.
Somewhere along the way, I managed to snap some napping pictures. Aren't these babies so sweet? To see Corbin laying so angelic-like in his sleep you would never the boy is really hell on wheels. LOL. Oh, but he is the cutest little thing. But just wait until I get to the selfie-stick story... You'll understand what I mean.
That night, Jeremy figured out how to make the selfie-stick I bought (hoping to use it for my THRIVE business stuff eventually) work with my phone. I didn't even try... I am sure I would have eventually figured it out, but I ain't got time for that. So I let him do it ;). This is a dorky picture, but I post it for a good reason: it's the only decent picture (of 4 total) I got using the selfie stick.
So we drove to Georgia Wednesday evening when Jeremy got off work. 2.5 hours one way, and I didn't want to do it twice in one day with kids. So we went over Wednesday and spent the night at my dad's cousin's house. My dad went too. We enjoyed visiting with everyone and had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner before heading home. Got to see one of my 2nd cousins that I grew up with in Panama. We both have kids the exact same age, just flip-flopped (he had a girl first). So we snapped a quick picture before we left. Also, my Aunt (she's really my cousin, but we've always called her aunt) Janie rented a humongous bouncy house for the kids. And Jeremy. It was a hit!
Anyway, we got home about 8:30 on Thursday. The joy of having a potty-trained child is that they always have to pee at the most inopportune moments during a road trip... Like when you're on the back-roads of Georgia without a store in sight. Sigh. But we made it without accidents! Woohoo! Lynnaea rocks.
And last night we watched our Thanksgiving tradition show a couple days late :). Gotta love some B.C. Thanksgiving! I'm excited that Lynnaea is getting old enough to find it funny :). Because I think it's hilarious!
Oh! But I did find out something exciting! So for the last 3 months, THRIVE Life has had a contest for anyone who wants to participate. Basically you create a new recipe using at least one of the items in the monthly specials. Naturally, because I love my THRIVE and I love experimenting and trying new things in the kitchen, I decided to try it out! I submitted a recipe for Cauliflower Tots. And I won!!! It was so awesome! I won the 3 ingredients from November's specials that I used in the recipe (cauliflower, scrambled egg mix, and Chef's Choice seasoning blend) plus some freeze dried cookie dough bites! Which is really exciting for me :). Anyway, they posted a video on their facebook page and everything -- and granted, they totally mispronounced my name... But that's just to be expected. I still am really excited about winning :). If you want to check out the recipe, you can do so here.
So yep, that's that!
