Oh the Joys of Christmas!

After Thanksgiving ,the Christmas season starts. Which means putting up the Christmas Tree!!! Jack and I put up our tree on Friday night while enjoying some Christmas music!!!

I am Thankful for....

This year Jack and I had Turkey day at our house. It turned out great. It was mostly Jack's dad's side of the family and then my dad and sister. We had ad "potluck" turkey day so it wasn't as stressful as it could of been. We still ended up with a ton of food.

We have so many things to be thank full for this year, just to name a few: great family, awesome friends, good health, a warm cozy roof over our head, jobs that keeps the bills paid and most of all each other~!

Our beloved George

Everyone, I would like to introduce you to George and Herbert. George and Herbert are watchmen gobies (peonounced GO-BEE). George was one of our first salt water fish. He was my favorite. He loved his mommy! Every time I came to the tank and said "Hi Boys!" George would come to the front of the tank to greet me! Herbert joined out tank from Jody's tank in the beginning of 2009. they became Friends. Soon after Herbert joined, George started to get very plump! Well it turns out that George was actually a Georgeanne!(I continued to call her George!) George and Herbert had little baby gobies! None of them survived but it was really cool to see the egg sack in the tank.

Unfortunately on November 5th George passed away. We believe it was from natural causes. He/she was getting old and it was just his/her time. We will miss our gobie George deeply. Herbert will need to find a new love... but we may just give him some time to grieve.

Our Fishes!!!

Jack started his salt water reef aquarium almost 5 years ago. He has come along way. I swear he is the fish master. He knows everything there is to know about fish and how to take of them! I love our tank! It is so soothing to just stare at and enjoy.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

Our costumes turned out to be a pretty good hit! Everyone was very impressed with it. On Friday we went to our Friend Debbie's annual Halloween party. My costume didn't turn out as great as I wanted it too. the paint was all wrong and the RED hairspray turned out to be ORANGE. Saturday we put the whole outfit on again and went to Brady's. We didn't win any contests this year but we were close! Michael Jackson won at Brady's and the Roller girls won at Debbie's.
