"National Lampoons" Thanksgiving!

Yes, that’s right I said National Lampoons Thanksgiving… NOT Christmas!
why, one might be asking?... My Mom and Dad came all the way from Ut. to little ol’ Moscow for Thanksgiving Exciting right! :)… Here is why… My Mom and Dad hit a huge snow storm on there way up here and got in a car accident rolled the car three times the drive here took 2+ days {instead of the normal 10 hour drive} than… My Dad was like a little boy on Christmas all over again because he was planning to go fishing a few days while visiting me. {I guess northern Idaho has amazing fishing.} Turns out… We were told the fishing right now was HORRIBULE because of the weather!
that's why... anything that could go wrong did go wrong!

All-n-all I am so so so thankful my Mom and Dad walked away from the accident! My Mom and Dad truly and honestly are my best pals. I am SO glad they were able to come and spent Thanksgiving day with us!

Thank You Military!

Back in my single days I knew one thing would be certain in my future husband… I said I would NEVER EVER marry someone who was in the military. It flat out scared me! I know I am a needy person and I KNEW I could NEVER handle my husband being deployed. Whelp… Here I am married to a military man He may not be a veteran {yet} But He is in the military and I honor and love that about Aaron. Ever since I met Aaron and his family I have fallen in love with our country and have a huge appreciation for all the men and women who sacrifice SO much for everyone who lives in America. I am grateful for my dad, Aaron’s dad & for Aaron because they all three served our country!
Happy Veterans' Day!
{Aaron being sworn in by his Dad}
This was at Governors Day in 2007......
Waaaaay back in the day when it was just Aaron & Angela combo!....
Was there ever a time when it was just he and I?.... not really!
I was pregnant here!
2 months being newlyweds and 2 months being pregnant! :)
