We headed up to KC around 6pm on Wednesday. The kids were perfect in the car. Leila slept and Malakai talked the ENTIRE time! Arrived at the in-laws around 11, put the kids to bed and I headed over to Kristens for a beer and some quick catch up. I hate that everytime we are up there it is for such a short amount of time! We spent Thanksgiving morning with Bob and Barb and headed over to my Grandparents for dinner. Can you believe I actually had the cutest coordinated outfits for us and didn't get ONE family picture! I did get one picture of Malakai, but he wouldn't take those crazy Chiefs things off his face! He told me they were his "game face!" Leila's dress matched the pattern of his vest and Josh and I had gray and navy sweaters :) He is such a trooper sometimes!
We headed back to STL early Friday morning, but not before I hit the local Walmart at 5am! I wasn't fighting for anything this year. There were a few things that if they were still there, I would get them and I ended up getting them!
Malakai stayed in KC with my dad, Lisa, and Kiera. They have a fun filled schedule like usual! Ice Skating, movies, Santa, and much, much more! I miss the little stinker! He will be back on Wednesday.
That's about all the excitement going on here! Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! Remember, be Thankful for what and who you have in your life! It's why we are here :)
Best thing since I last blogged: This video! I love EVERY guy in here! Sometimes, when I'm by myself, I re-enact the Risky Business scene also ;)
Worst thing since I last blogged: Not seeing Twilight on opening night :( I did go last night though and it was amazing! I got Josh a Tshirt that says "I'm her Edward!"

I have however, succeeded at many other things recently that this failure is making only a tiny notch on my headboard of goals ;)
For example, I have:
Spent very valuable time getting together a diet and an exercise plan that is ready to be implemented December 1st! I have even managed to work the gym into my schedule and it is not taking any more time away from my children.
- Not yelled at my mom for something in two days...so what if she is in Phoenix, it still counts :)
- Managed not to pull my hair out strand by strand while my sweet little Leila Jane has gone missing and been replaced by the spawn of Satan. Please teeth, just come in already!!
- Worn my pink power ranger mask that Malakai made for me on the computer during dinner the past two nights and haven't complained once!
- Cooked...almost every night the past two weeks!
- Given up my $5/day Starbucks habit and settled for lower class Quick Trip Mocha's.
- Not tried to kill my dog this week
- Went to the post office AND the UPS store!
So see, even though I didn't blog every day this month, there is a list of other things I have accomplished while I wasn't blogging :)
On a different note, Malakai had his Thanksgiving Lunch at school yesterday. Since I was unable to attend, Josh and Leila were there. From what I hear it was good times. Josh took a few pictures. In the last parent/teacher conference that we had Kai's teachers told us that he shows NO interest in the girls in the class. He is perfectly fine playing transformers and football with the boys. He also NEVER mentions ANY of the girls in his class. So here it is ladies, the key to Malakai's heart....offer to feed him icing off your finger! It gets him every time!!
These are the only pictures we got, however, I can't blame Josh, the room was CROWDED and he was going back and forth between Malakai and Leila. I give him the #1 Room Mom title :)
Here is a little video of Leila just moving along! She can have a MILLION toys out and she will find something else that she isn't supposed to have. I managed to catch a "happy" moment and believe me, there haven't been very many lately. She has been CRAAABYYY!! She is getting used to me not being home, she has a nasty cough, and her gums are SO swollen there HAS to be more teeth coming through!
Best thing since I last blogged: Goddard telling me they can switch Malakai' days! YEAH!
Worst thing since I last blogged: Having to clean up after a four year old who has covered an ENTIRE room in baby powder! Ugh!

I think I could have possibly had the BEST t-shirt there! I had probably 15 random people stop me and ask if they could take my picture!! We were initially up in the top section, but got our tickets upgraded to a much closer and better seat. They did all the great classics and it was SO loud in there with everyone singing and screaming at the top of their lungs you couldn't even hear yourself think! I loved it!!
Here are a few pics from a night I will NEVER forget!!
Best thing since I last blogged: Duh!! Best night I've had in a LONG time!
Worst thing since I last blogged: Having to get up and put a smile on my face the next day for work!

I just had to post this one because the 10 year old behind Kai had his feet up on the seat the ENTIRE time and was kicking!! Would you ever let your child do that?!
Best thing since I last blogged: Picking out an outfit to wear to the New Kids concert on Monday :)
Worst thing since I last blogged: I believe the gorgeous fall weather is gone...it's officially cold!!

Josh showing he can have a good time at the mall :)
OMG! I like to think that Josh and I are educated on many sports. However, hockey IS NOT one of them!! People just don't really play hockey in KC. That's why when we moved to STL and saw that High School's had hockey teams, we were shocked!! With it being the busy season for Josh, and hockey being on Saturday morning, I was tackling this task with myself, my two kids, and my mom. NEVER AGAIN with out Josh!! You have to arrive 30 minutes early just so you can get all the freaking equipment on! I've never seen so much padding. However, Malakai was VERY impressed with his biker shorts with the built in cup to protect his pee-pee. We are talking shorts, pants, cups, padded shorts, socks, suspenders, shoulder pads, chin guards, elbow pads, helmet, skates, mouth guard, and hockey stick! I'm sure I'm forgetting something....oh yeah, JERSEY!
The coaches are amazing and their patience is even more amazing. Malakai really enjoyed it and is looking forward to next week! As for Mommy...not so much :)
Well there you have it! I am now caught up for the month of November :) Now there will be one blog a day from here on out!
